  1. Kovalchuk makes a whopping 5.5 mil this year and 7.5 for the next two....that's Elias money and I don't think Lou would move our captain....although I would take Kovalchuk over Elias
  2. Hey man, I respect seniority...I wouldn't want some guy coming in and tkaing my spot either! However, I 'm always up for a goaltending challenge....
  3. Not only do I have my season tickets again for the Rock, I know of a few people who are upgrading from partials to seasons. It's just easier to get there now! I for one can't wait to sell my preferred parking passes and take the Newark City Cubway to and from games...$1.25 each way!
  4. ...when you go to another team's arena and can't figure out why nobody is joining you in your "Beat The Traffic" chant
  5. ...you know exactly where you were when Friesen scored the game winning goal against the Sens in the '03 Eastern Conference Finals For me, I was listening on the radio in my friend's Jeep (Sharks fan) with his girlfriend (Rags fan) sitting next to him. When Friesen scored, I started screaming Let's Go Devils with my head out of the window going about 50 mph. Needless to say, they were less than pleased with me...
  6. Most important acquisition, by a nose, would have to be Sutter. The one thing that the Devs have been missing over the last few years is an identity. We haven't seen true Devils discipline since Pat burns was running the show and Sutter should provide that kick in the a$$. Our younger payers, (Zajac, Parise) will also be even better under his leadership. Everyone will be held accountable for their play from now on and it's about time! Number two would have to be Zubrus. I spent a month in DC last year and got a chance to go to a few Caps games, so I was able to see Zubrus in action. He's seems to be the kind of player that opens up oppurtunities for others and is always "in the play". I remember being pretty impressed by him...amazing since your attention is constantly on Ovechkin when you watch the Caps! I can see him as a Brylin style player who will fit well in the Devils system. All we need is one more scorer....
  7. Ok....I am well aware that the following statement may alienate me from everyone on the board and I'm only 3 posts in...but here goes nothing... I can't STAND Cam Janssen!! There...I said it... Yes, I will agree that watching Cam line up Juraj Kolnik from the near boards and crack his head against the glass makes me giggle like school girl. And yes, when Mr Janssen puts his mind to it, he can bang with the best of them and get his team charged up. And watching him take 10 punches to the head, smile and then start swinging once his oppenent gets tired is wildly entertaining...I wont dispute any of these points. However, I just don't think there is any room in the Devs organization, or in the new NHL for that matter, for a guy thats all muscle but no skill. He is a liability every time he touches the puck. Yeah he's a great hitter, but he never hits anybody worth hitting. Imagine him going after an Alfredson or a Jagr...they would skate circles around him! That being said, I do agree that the Devs should try him out on the blue line. As shown in his only goal last season against the Caps, he can shoot! Put him on the third defensive pairing and let him take shots from the point. Maybe use him as a PP specialist...the man has put a puck or two in the net in college...that might be a better role for him than a 4th line winger. Hopefully, since he is here for a while, he'll get some ice time and learn to keep a puck on his stick but I wont be a fan until I can stop cringing every time a puck comes his way. Sorry for the long post but I have never understood the Devil's fan's love affair with Cam Janssen
  8. Nice topic...my first Devils game was on my birthday in 1992 against the Hartford Whalers...I still have the 10th Anniversary wrist sweatbands to prove it! Remember that night like it was freaking yesterday... It was my best friend since 3rd grade, his brother, his dad and yours truly. We piled into his dad's old ass Chevy conversion van...yes, the kind with the ladder in the back and curtains in the side windows...and schleped on down to the Brendan Byrne for some kick ass hockey. I didn't know jack about hockey, the Dev's, what the hell a puck was...nothing! After that night, however, I was hooked for life! I believe the Devs won that night, but I'm not 100% sure...either way, me and my friend still talk about that game...good times...
  9. Hey there! I too, like many off these "standard intro posts", have been looking for a quality site to post my worthless, ill-informed opinions...so here I am! My interests include Street Hockey, Opie and Anthony, and pissing off bank tellers...easy target, I agree but what else is one to do on lunch... Looking forward to plopping my ass in Section 209 next year with all the displaced maniacs from 218. I sat in 219 last season and I wear a jersey that reads "Bulletproof" so be sure to give me a holler if you see me at a game. Looking forward to posting with ya'll! Cheers!
