  1. The pipe leading into your nearest waste treatment plant is cleaner than the Phailures. Wow, THANK YOU, KOVY!
  2. Chiarelli opted not to suspend and fine the guy, which is worse than the guy having a tantrum and bragging about it in the first place. There were a lot of players in that room who don't approve of Obama, but they know the difference between a team event and a personal one. They know their goalie laid an egg and acted like a spoiled two-year-old. But it's not the first time he's done something petty and stupid and it won't be the last. At least he spared Obama the ordeal of having to be polite to a selfish bigot. Of course being a man, Obama did his duty because it's a tradition that goes with the job, no matter what he thought of the team or its players. I suppose it must be a comfort for you, DevilsFanSteve30, to think that so many of the people who are supposed to have your back in a crisis think it's perfectly fine not to show up if they don't want to.
  3. http://www.rg.ru/2011/09/07/sostav-anons.html lists the team in Cyrillic, http://www.rg.ru/2011/09/07/sot-anons.html in partial translation В катастрофе Як-42 выжил хоккеист "Локомотива" Александр Галимов [18:11] In the crash of Yak-42 hockey player survived the "Locomotive" Alexander Galimov Один из двоих выживших при крушении самолета под Ярославлем - хоккеист "Локомотива" Александр Галимов. One of the two survivors of a plane crash near Yaroslavl - hockey player, "Locomotive" Alexander Galimov. Об этом сообщает РИА Новости . It is reported by RIA Novosti . Александр Галимов в тяжелом состоянии доставлен в больницу скорой медицинской помощи имени Соловьева. Alexander Galimov in serious condition was taken to hospital emergency medical name Solovyov. Как сообщили в Минздравсоцразвития России, в ту же больницу доставлен еще один выживший - бортпроводник. As reported by the Health Ministry of Russia, in the same hospital delivered another survivor - flight attendant. Его состояние также оценивается как тяжелое. His condition is also considered to be serious. --- Google news searched for "Александр Васюнов" (Alexander Vasyunov). Can't believe this. He was a nice kid, so excited when he came to Low Hell in 2008...
  4. So Bridgeport won't have anywhere to send their best players when they need a promotion and a raise. Sad.
  5. Hé, où est cela qu'il avait mis la mitaine exactement?
  6. For your sake, Tri, I hope the Devils put up an entertaining product this season, ZP performs a miracle, IK doesn't svck, MB rebounds, and the fans keep each other going. I think you're right, the real game for Lou has been to shepherd the franchise through the lean years when their past success catches up with them. He has to do what the owners want, maybe they want to maximize revenue, maybe they want to win ONE cup and then sell... Anyway, he hasn't had much to work with lately. His choice has been to tank for the draft picks and hemorrhage fans, or to hobble along wisely and frugally with a team that plays well enough to make the playoffs most seasons and retain most of the fanbase but keep getting poor draft picks and almost never draft another superstar. There's a lot of competition in the area and the Devils haven't been around long enough to have the multi-generational loyalty of, say, the Bruins, so Lou really to worry about the on-ice product every year. And it's hard to gauge the fanbase's real preference based on surveys and polls. For instance, people might say they don't mind not winning the Cup as long as the hockey's good to watch and the team makes the playoffs, but lose interest when the team goes for a decade without winning. It's not what they say they want (cf. cognitive dissonance) it's what they do with their ticket money that matters. He won't have an easy job for awhile, I hope he gets a lot of mileage out of landing Larsson but I expect that's down the road. Meanwhile, since there's no hockey in Low Hell again, I'm still gonna root for the players I like. GO, ZACH!
  7. And insulting him and pissing him off is a better plan. Riiiiiiiight.
  8. This. The team should have said so right up front in its initial offer and not asked for arbitration.
  9. Zach, wear the "C" in your heart, have a Hall of Fame record year, shred the league's goalies, and blow the Devils' cap sky high next year!
  10. Their website still has the old red-white-and-blue logo. T04, did the Titans ownership actually buy the Trenton Devils franchise from the Devils? Or did they activate someone else's dormant license? Heard from Henkel?
  11. Well, I'm not surprised the Flyers fans outnumber the Devils fans in South Jersey. The state is as divided as Massachusetts (Boston and 'burbs vs. all the rest). I just hope there are enough hockey fans in the Trenton area, who still have jobs and disposable income, to support a minor league hockey team. If you like hockey you'll support the local hockey team, even if their name is the Grittytown Guzzlers, their colors are puce, chartreuse and poo brown, their mascot is a drunken rabbit passed out in a trash can, their NHL affiliate is Columbus or Dallas, they play in a flooded church basement, and even hockeydb.com has never heard of half the team before this season. If you're loyal enough to go watch that kind of team play, you can call yourself a hockey fan. Buy a season ticket for that kind of team, and you need one of those white jackets with the long ties at the ends of the sleeves, but you're a serious hockey fan. By that standard, of course, I quit being a hockey fan a year ago. Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS, TRENTON!
  12. Bernie's teasing everybody. Wow. Did some white knight sponsor sign up for 300 tickets or something?
  13. Swappin' Lou's Kool-Aid for Prune Juice. Hope he likes the taste. Actually the Providence Journal has more info... Notice they couldn't help dissing the Devils, too? Not like they didn't earn it. They suspended operations in April? But didn't tell the community until July. Sure, it was just a minor league team, they had more important things on their minds. Anyway... Best of luck, Deano!
  14. Sounds like a win-win situation. Blondie found a good home, I wish him well! Félicitations, bonhomme!
  15. Bleu, blanc et rouge! Parfait! Est-ce qu'ils sont des fans des Canadiens de Montréal? Bonne fête!
