  1. Love getting Walker back on the QO; perfect outcome for the Mets, in my opinion. Gonna suck to see Big Sexy in a Braves uniform - not because of the talent swing but just sentimental feelings. I'd be surprised if Mets fans boo him when he visits Citi Field for the first time... he was too likeable. I'm keeping my fingers crossed this team finds a way to get rid of Bruce and bring back Cespedes.
  2. I'm not too worried right now; it's only 6 games, the shots are there, etc. For what it's worth, compared to last season, he's seeing about 3 minutes less time on ice per game at even strength and about 30 seconds less of time on ice per game on the powerplay. I'm sure it doesn't help that the Hynes has shuffled the lines a gazillion times, either.
  3. Ducks finally signed Hampus Lindholm - 6 years / $5.25M AAV. That's nearly identical to the deal Ristolainen got, except Lindholm is a much more well-rounded player. Great deal for the Ducks in comparison.
  4. Arizona will play surprisingly tough early but Schneider will make some great saves. The Devils offense will finally "find it" and jump out to a 3-0 lead through 2 periods. Coyotes find the back of the net early in the 3rd only to be answered back by the Devils before the 10 minute mark of the 3rd period. Arizona then manages to find the back of the net with 5-7 minutes left giving us very slight anxiety but the Devils hang on to win 4-2. Book it. LGD.
  5. Will do! I got these tickets free via the Devils app promotion that ran a couple weeks ago. It was my wife's first hockey game ever and suffice to say, she had WAY more fun compared to Mets games we've gone to (she doesn't understand baseball whatsoever but can relate to hockey a little bit since she's familiar with soccer). I was actually surprised on how well she was able to pick up on things... and it doesn't hurt Newark is home to some great, authentic Brazilian restaurants to grab dinner before a game. Definitely will be more games in the near future for us.
  6. DUDE! I was in 126 with my wife.... totally could've met if I knew you were going!
  7. Yep, parked in lot next to Immigration building last night for $7.50 - I believe their rate is double that but it's $7.50 if you buy online ahead of time using ParkWhiz app. I believe it was you who mentioned the app in the parking thread in the other sub forum so big thanks! I used my promo tickets for last nights game with the wife. Sat in section 126. Fun finish!
  8. For the person above who mentioned ParkWhiz - thanks. Was very easy to find parking last night using the app and buying online ahead of time only cost me $7.50 (I think the lot is called LA Parking Corp). It's basically right next to the Immigration office; easy walking distance to the Rock.
  9. Practice lines this morning: Taylor Hall-Adam Henrique-Blake Speers Beau Bennett-Travis Zajac-Kyle Palmieri Mike Cammalleri-Pavel Zacha-P.A. Parenteau Sergey Kalinin-Vern Fiddler-Devante Smith-Pelly We're not really going to try Speers on the 1st line, right? But more to the point, I can't stand this constant line shuffling. I understand we need goals, but can we let these guys gel together for at least a few games? I'd throw this out there and see what happens: Hall-Henrique-Palmieri Cammalleri-Zacha-Parenteau Boucher-Zajac-Bennett Kalinin-Fiddler-DSP Extras: Josefson, Wood (Speers back to juniors) Auvitu has been a definite bright spot among the defensemen and Quincey has been pretty good, too. On the contrary, the Moore-Lovejoy pairing has been downright bad. I think they should be broken up or maybe one sits for Santini (I'd give the benefit of the doubt to Lovejoy). Only problem with the latter is after Greene, Quincey and Lovejoy who is the 4th defenseman you can trust on the PK? And maybe Santini is just a case of the grass isn't always greener. Anyway, those are just some of my thoughts through these first handful of games.
  10. Didn't see it posted here, but General Fanager (Tom Poraszka) was hired by Las Vegas as a Hockey Operations Analyst. Awesome for Tom, sucks for us!
  11. Don't really like splitting Henrique and Hall after just one game but glad DSP is flipped with Parenteau. DSP had no business playing on that first line, flukish-late-season-goal-outburst or not... Carp - Bennett is on the 3rd line, Josefson out.
  12. Same here, tickets are in my Apple wallet. Never had an issue using Apple wallet tickets to other events before (Fandango movies / Mets games) so should be fine for Devils games too...
  13. Felt like NJ was outplayed severely at times, but Florida is a great team - happy to steal a point on the road in a tough matchup. Also, nice to be reminded again how terrific Cory Schneider is.
  14. Happy to see the Nats knocked out. No rooting interest in either series, although the Cubs and their fans really deserve a WS title.
  15. Out of my own necessity, had to pick a Saturday game so went with vs Wild on 10/22. I kept running into an issue with selecting a pair of seats where it was basically saying I needed to find a row where they were at least 4 open seats together. Didn't quite understand that but happy with free tickets and decent seats nonetheless.
  16. Bennett, Boucher, and Santini are healthy scratches per AG so the projected lines in the original post seem accurate, with Quincey in for Santini. LGD!
  17. Correct - straight through my phone (I have an iPhone, fwiw). I have the form website saved in my history: newjerseydevils.formstack.com/forms/index.php. I believe that's the page it prompts to open immediately after downloading and opening the app on my phone... Edit: Try this link - https://newjerseydevils.formstack.com/forms/njd_new_app_ticket_offer_2016_09
  18. Thanks for sharing this. I downloaded the App and it asked to open a browser webpage immediately, I accepted, filled out a general form, and submitted. It says once the form is processed, I'll receive an email with my offer code and instructions to redeem tickets... I'll let you know when I receive said email. Did others get this far?
  19. For whatever it's worth, today's lines in practice per AG: Taylor Hall-Adam Henrique-Devante Smith-Pelly Mike Cammalleri-Travis Zajac-Kyle Palmieri Jacob Josefson-Pavel Zacha-P.A. Parenteau Miles Wood-Vern Fiddler-Blake Speers Extras: Reid Boucher, Beau Bennett
  20. I like the move. Stempniak 2.0, sorta? I'd bump DSP off the 1st line for him. Hall-Henrique-Parenteau Cammalleri-Zajac-Palmieri Boucher-Zacha-Bennett Josefson-Fiddler/Kalinin-DSP
  21. Didn't know much about Griffith before looking him up, but was surprised to see he had the 2nd most points in the AHL last season despite playing quite a bit less games compared to the folks around him on the leaderboard. Was also tied for 1st in PP assists. Only 23. Seems like the kind of player we should take a flier on. Why not?
  22. Sounds like Kucherov and TB may also be close to a deal. Today's waived players from BM: Any interest in any of these guys? Was surprised to see Parenteau waived. Pulkkinen hasn't done much at the NHL level but had 61 points in 46 AHL games in 2014-15..
  23. Any thoughts on Auvitu? Per the box he led the team in SOG (4) and saw the 2nd most TOI on the PP among the defensemen (Greene, on the other hand, had 0 SOG despite more than 3.5 minutes of PP time)...
