  1. I'll be watching McLeod closely. Speed plays in today's game and I'm not ready to give up on him yet.
  2. You can't call yourself a lacrosse fan if you don't know that he's referring to French_Highschool_1 and their top goalscorer Stereo versus English_Highschool_1 AND English_Highschool_2. Hand in your fan card, man.
  3. You know what, I changed my mind. I don’t like you.
  4. Rangers fans chant Potvin sucks during every home game in reference to the Islander great. Duke Basketball, the most storied college basketball team in the world screams Carolina Eat Sh!t during every home game since 1982. A common greeting to those who attend Army is “Go army beat navy.” Yankees fans proudly wear FTRS shirts to Home games; that stands for Fvck The Red Sox. Kentucky basketball sells officially licensed shirts that say “I hate Christian Laettnar” because of a shot he hit against them in 1992. Stop talking out of your ass. You’re embarrassing yourself. I’ll keep going off the top of my head; WVU chants “eat sh!t pitt” as part of their fight song during every home game. UNC’s fight song includes the lyrics: Wake Is Fake, Duke Is Puke, But NCState is the Team I Hate. The most popular tee shirt you’ll find at a Red Sox game is YANKEES SUCK. But you keep holding onto that “aw you devils fans sure are childish”.
  5. SD — with respect, because I do like you, shut the FVCK up. I’m glad you know what the word rivalry means, but you’ve made it abundantly clear that you don’t know what THIS rivalry means. you can’t possibly tell someone from New Jersey who’s dealt their whole life with broadway blowtards filling half of the arena during Devils rangers games; wearing their Blue Avery jerseys and flipping you off during Devils Wild games, riding NJ Transit chanting Marty Sucks after Brodeur pitched a shutouts “I know rivalry better than you do”. You don’t. Its a losing battle. If you haven’t been to Jersey, sat in that arena and had those fvcks scream in your ear you have NO clue what this rivalry is. And until you do, you never will.

    So I’ll give my recollection of that game 7, since it’s still the best sporting moment of my life. The wife (then girlfriend) and I had a huge exam at school (UMiami) the next day. Didn’t plan at all on going to the game. She worked in a computer lab, so we’re sitting in there around 5:00 and planning to go to Yardhouse for the game. Great food and beers, and they didn’t card me (I was 20). While she’s working I’m d!cking off on the computer and decide to check stubhub. We already decided we didn’t want to sit in nosebleeds around the truly terrible panthers fans, especially to see what could’ve been a loss. So I pull up stubhub and I see two tickets; Premium Lower Bowl 104 Row 4 seats 7 and 8. (Just checked my email. I was Row 4, not Row 2). $39 each. Someone was just trying to get rid of them. Well I couldn’t pass it up. Bought the tickets, jumped in the car (I didn’t even have my devils jersey, I planned on changing at home before the restaurant) sat in awful rush hour and got to the game right as puck dropped. Henrique scored his first of the game as we’re walking down the aisle. I sat behind 3 of the worst fvcking douchebags I’ve ever met in my life. They spent the entire 2nd period screaming Jose-Josejosejose (to the tune of olè). When the devils carried that 2-0 lead into the third, I was in tears I was so excited. We were dominating them... the panthers literally got BOOED OFF THE ICE in the second period. I think they had 1 shot the whole period. Early in the third the panthers scored but the goal got called hack. Goalie interference I think? During the next commercial break, panthers fans threw stuff on the ice chanting “Marty sucks” and “refs you suck”. Lovely people. When the panthers scored to tie it late in the third I was nauseous. The d!cks in front of me turned around and started dancing on my girlfriend. I almost swung at them; and if the elderly devils fan sitting next to me didn’t grab my arm I would’ve been kicked out there. Thanks man. So in the first overtime, Salvador gets slashed 15 feet from me and let out the loudest FVCK sh!t I have heard in my life. Never heard a player that loud. While Salvador was on the bench (think he might have even been walking to the locker room?) I heard the N word yelled for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd time in my life. Again, classy bunch they have down there. Henrique scoring was a blur. I actually didn’t see the puck go in; my wife screamed YES YES YES and I reached over to tell her no, the goalie saved the puck and that’s when I noticed Parise skating 100mph and leaping on the pile that I hadn’t noticed formed. I started screaming some commensurately vile things at the three amigos in front of me, who somehow didn’t punch me in the face. We ran to the boards and were pounding on the glass. We all hustled over to the bench, where Marty was being interviewed on the ice. The elderly devils fan and I started a LETS GO DEVILS chant, Marty noticed and gave us a thumbs up. I got road head on the way home and decided in that moment that it would forever be the best day of my life. Failed the living fvck out of the exam the next day. Worth it.

    Off topic but I randomly watched the highlights of our cup run in 2012 and I offer the following commentary: 1. Now that time has passed it’s hard to hate Kovy. We don’t beat the Rangers without him; period. We probably don’t beat the panthers. 2. I was at Game 7 in Florida, row 2. Still the best moment in my life. 3. That team blew a LOT of leads. I mean a lot. Quick counting: 3-0 against the Panthers; loss. 2-0 against the Panthers, 3-2 OT win. 2-0 against the Panthers, 3-2 double OT win. 3-0 against the rangers, 4-3 win. 2-0 against the rangers, OT win. Sheesh. ^7^ must’ve been in rare form. 4. In the game 5 win against the rangers, Gionta’s first goal is like 1,000% offsides. Lucky there wasn’t review, because that play looks dead. 5. I will hate Mark fayne until the day I die. Just, ugh. 6. That team made the cup finals with Peter Harold playing major minutes. 7. Throw back to Alexi Ponikarovski. What a guy. Also throw back to when Clarkson was a beast. 8. fvck you Mark Fayne. thank you for coming to my ted talk
  12. Your analogies are absolutely terrible, dude. How are our opponents considered our wives/gfs in this situation?
  13. I love New York City. Part of it is probably because the Yankees are my 1B to the Devils’ 1A. Part of it is probably because I worked and lived there, and absolutely adored every minute of it - even the smelly ones. Im not going to speculate why people do and don’t love the city, because that’s kinda silly. So I’ll just chime in that my hatred of the Rangers doesn’t coincide with my hatred of the city. I cannot say the same about the Flyers or the Bruins.

    Panarin’s worth more because he doesn’t have 4 1sts attached to him. And yes, I would have given Panarin 11.6 in a fvcking heartbeat.

    What else is there to talk about? and again; if the offer sheet is for 12.5 million there is a VERY real possibility they let him go.

    Who said anything about McDavid? Lmao, what. i also want Gusev. I’ve been vocal about that. But he isn’t in the same stratosphere as Marner.

    Again, this is a new phenomenon on NJDevs and it’s making me rip my hair out. Instead of listing a target player, they list this pie in the sky target player ~profile~. Why go get a 22 year old 96 point scorer when we can just get A PURE SNIPER. Why go after Subban when we could have traded for AN ALL STAR DEFENSIVE DEFENSEMAN. if you want to argue “let’s get Laine instead of Marner”, fvckin rights! Let’s have a discussion. But if you constantly say stuff like “why get Marner for 12 million when you can have a goal scorer for 6 million and a defenseman for 6 million” without even mentioning a name, your argument is sh!t and you should feel bad.

    I find it so weird when people add these bizarrely arbitrary players to bolster their argument. Who’s a defenseman worth 5m that we’re using to replace Greene? Because if they’re worth 5m and they’re open-market, they’ll get 7 or 8. If Ty Smith and Will butcher don’t turn into first and second pairing defenseman respectively, we’re fvcked regardless. Secondly, the whole “Oh no what will happen when Jack Hughes is worth 15m” (fvcking 15m?!) four years from now? Who gives a sh!t; sounds like we got lucky as hell. The cap made a monster leap after the league previously added a team. No reason to expect it won’t again. I’m confused what you see in Blackwood that makes you actually say “eh let’s not overpay Mitch; we might have to pay MacKenzie fvcking Blackwood”. But I guess everyone has their pets. Lastly, you concluded your argument again with this; “if they make another big trade/signing, they’ll be within a few million of the cap ceiling.” Again, this whole mystery man schtick is ridiculous. Who is this trade or signing? And why is he worth 9m (to get close to the cap like you said) when Marner isn’t worth 12? When the Devils were steady making the playoffs, look who our first round picks were. The odds of finding 4 players in the 20s at the draft who COMBINE to be the kind of guy Mitch Marner already is (at an age that already complements our young core) is slim to none.

    If you add Marner to this Devils team it’s safe to say they won’t be in the lottery for quite a while. Dont overestimate the value of a mid-late 1st round pick. Prior to Nico, I don’t think there’s a single collection of 4 consecutive players I wouldn’t trade for a 96-point scoring 22 year old. You’d probably have to go all the way back to Parise to even think about it.

    You’re making a leap insinuating that there’s a possibility Nico and Ty Smith are signing for 10+ around the corner, and I don’t think it’s worth sitting out the Marner sweeps on that off chance. I’d also agree that if you plan on giving up 4 1st’s; it absolutely cannot be for a 3 year deal.

    It just confuses me that people say “I’m fine with Marner at 11 but OH MY GOD 12.5 HANG UP THE PHONE AND KILL YOURSELF SHERO WOW” What in the hell are you doing with that extra 1.5? We’re eeking above the salary FLOOR right now ya dinguses!

    I would offersheet Marner in ten seconds at 12.5. i think you guys are dramatically overestimating the damages of overpaying a player 1 or 2 million dollars. The devils are not a cap team. The devils haven’t been a cap team in years. The devils have stupid contracts for older players expiring between now and the time Hughes has to re-sign.

    Time for Ray to offer Trouba 2x15m deal. Get him for one season, let him hit the wide open UFA market right after. Makes sense for him. Makes sense for us. Makes sense for fvck the rangers. (Half joking)
