    Wanted to give a shout out for some of the cool things they’ve done. I thought it was stupid and unprofessional after the success of the Lou era early on. But they’ve grown on me this year. As a lover of the Sopranos and the Devils this is amazing.

    Oh man. Sorry to hear. Tough to even think about.
  3. Thanks for posting this. I’d love to get my hands on that book as soon as I have the time. I’d argue that 95% of academic success in education has to do with parental involvement. If you want your kids to do well and stress the importance of it, they will. On the other hand, the statistics are crippling https://www.dosomething.org/us/facts/11-facts-about-literacy-america We need to get away from the idea of passing classes=success. Parents find that passing classes is more important than fundamental skills. And they’ve been conditioned and rewarded with that behavior for the most part. However, parenting cannot be regulated, but education can. If a student is not on the current reading level for the appropriate grade, they should not move on. Period. The gap only gets wider, struggling students fall behind more. The top 10% and bottom 10% in schools get most of the attention, with the middle just skating by. If we can raise the bottom 10%, I think we would see a decrease in crime. But what is an appropriate solution to a student who’s family doesn’t place emphasis on education? Hold him back until he reaches appropriate reading levels? Then we’re looking at 17 year old freshmen. Does the book talk at all about making K-8 compulsory and give the option to not go to high school? I don’t think it would ever happen because there would be a ton of teachers losing jobs, there could be a couple benefits. #1 this gives students a purpose to try hard. If for example, high school was privatized and kids could be kicked out for academic and behavioral issues, schools would become more competitive. Students would have a vested interest to succeed. #2 if school truly isn’t the place for your kid, get them to a place where they can develop themselves into something useful for themselves and society. This was a lot of sporadic thought and rambling, I’ll get off the soapbox for now.

    Eventually. I was just going by how Daniels post read.

    Anyone good with photoshop? Captain Phillips “I am the captain now” would be a great one.

    Cory should get the second half of back to backs from here on out. Nut up, bro.
  7. Trade Schneider

    Wrong side of 30, worst save % of career, 2nd season in a row. I’m not saying he’s dead, but I don’t think he’ll be anything more than average with hot and cold streaks. And he isn’t being paid like an average goaltender.
  8. Trade Schneider

    There were signs there that Cory could fall off this season going into it, some refused to acknowledge them.
  9. Trade Schneider

    If you told me a year ago the devils would be holding a playoff position in March, I would’ve kicked my own ass for making this thread. Shameless bump.

    fvck can we get our picks back?
  11. GDT: Jets @ Devils 7PM 3/8/18

    Any idea of the song that was just playing before most recent puck drop? No words just instrumental.
  12. You'll never win with Schneider

    What the numbers don’t show is the quality of the goals. The go ahead go in Florida and the game winner last night were piss poor. 2 points alone there. Quality of the goal matters. You’ve said it yourself, the Devils aren’t getting blitzed out of the building anymore in possession. Cut the bullsh!t goals out already. They are demoralizing.

    Wounded animal is the most dangerous kind. Play desperate.

    Missing the playoffs after a 9 point lead with 20 games to go would be a full blown catastrophe. I’m doubling down on this. Hall: Goes without saying at this point. We’ve got to show him we have the ability to compete for a cup or he’s gone. Schneider: I think we all looked at him coming back as something of a savior and it absolutely hasn’t happened. We know he already is a bit of a mental midget melting down in “clutch” spots. Four years left on his deal and he hasn’t looked like elite since Brodeur was breathing down his neck. Mojo: No, I’m not talking about Johansson, I’m talking about vibes and perception at both the league level and local level. The Devils at the league level could be players for a couple of free agent defensemen. To be able to bring one in without a massive overpay would have to give them proof that we’re conrenders. Choking this away would make us a joke. For local level, some of you come off incredibly ignorant about the attendance issues and literally have no idea about the culture of the state, playing second fiddle to the rangers in outbursts backyards. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother bringing that up if you want support here. With the rangers in all likelihood missing the playoffs, this is an amazing opportunity to stake the flag back in the ground. Fvcking ranger fans everywhere. Neighbors, coworkers, you name it. It would be sweet as hell to have this over them and put the fear of god into them about the dynasty days coming back. Future: make those traded picks worth something. I’ll be fine with a first round loss giving up those picks. Feels like a total strikeout otherwise

    Come on. This board has gotten ridiculously soft. This isn’t a troll job. It’s discussion. For everyone that has a problem with the complaining, what the hell else do you want to talk about? What do you expect? This is a Devils message board and they are in the process of a catastrophic meltdown that will do significant damage to the mental health of the franchise moving forward.
