    Apparently there’s a special on after we play tomorrow (nice that it follows a Devils game now). Looks like it’s an hour long, and will feature a bunch of all time great players and announcers. 

    I think chico is also in it as well talking about doc.

    I haven't been paying too much attention to the league starting the 2020-21 season, basically just assuming, and hoping, that they'd be able to get something figured out, but now I'm hearing rumblings that they are considering playing in outdoor stadiums...?  While that would be pretty cool, I feel like it would only add to the complexity of getting things started...trying to find an suitable outdoor stadium for each team in or near their home city seems like it would be difficult to arrange, not only for scheduling, but also the financial aspect, as I'm sure it wouldn't be free for these teams to use someone else's venue.  Anyone know if it's just an unfounded rumor, or something that they're seriously considering?  With Jan 1 being only a few weeks away I'm starting to have my doubts that they'll be starting up anytime soon, especially if they plan to have some semblance of a pre-season or training camp.

    No way in hell are the 2 worst governorers... cuomo and whoever you guys have, allowing fans in any arena regardless if its outdoors..

    Sucks, but at least my leagues aren't cancelled so im getting my hockey fix while the millionaires and billionaires fight it out

  3. You have to wonder if the devils give him another tribute for his career.... esp if ticket sales fall (continue to fall esp after who they supported this summer).  

    Also jumping the gun, but if they don't name a hotdog stand (or hotdog) after Chico when he hangs up the rug (i mean mic) the devils would have failed miserably.

  4. Good move, they have someone who imo will become the #1 when blackwood regresses from last season (similar to Kinkaid after his great season).  


    Personally I wouldve loved a hybrid goalie instead of a butterfly as I think they are better and less injury prone (yes, I'm biased as I play that style)

  5. Imo you have the 3 greatest goalies ever (Roy, haskek, brodeur).  Many many goalies fall below them from the 90s. I would group MAF, quick and Crawford in the same group, as they're all cup winners and played at the same time (similar to brodeurs group, but teams had more star players and they were not as good as their group).  

    Far below that I would put lundqvist and luongo in the same group, both good goalies to never win a cup... but imo lundqvist has a bigger edge over luongo who was a bit overrated and never really carried his team, unlike lundqvist who single handedly got them to the Stanley cup finals against the kings.


    And we need to get Chico in there, he still owns the record for most shutouts by an islanders goalie.  Somewhere near the bottom of any goalie list, but part of the best announcing duo with doc.

    Remember when we all applauded the owners for being in front of the curve and paying employees during the pandemic?

    Yeah that was a pleasant fiction for two weeks... our owners are really cheap fvcks for being billionaires...



    How are they cheap?  They are keeping everyone employed and will pay back those employees when things get back to normal. 

    I do think they start to open the country back up soon and end the quarentine... (keeping borders closed and not flying internationally for now). Cant keep everyone on lockdown for a virus with a lower mortality rate then the flu.  The longer the economy and USA is shut down the worse it will be for everyone, most jobs and depression which will be far worse then this virus which is easy to overcome if not in poor health or above 80

    1PM start time sucks.  I get it is NYE but I wonder how well the crowd will be to see the Devils get curb-stomped by one of the best teams in the league.

    Regardless I will have to find a place close to my work to catch the first period on TV on my lunch break.

    I'm sure there will be a decent crowd.  Players also like the earlier starts bc they have been spotted in times square after (kk/nico.bratt and a few others).  Granted as a New Yorker you cant pay me enough to stand outside (even with me getting nypd bathroom access from my nypd friends stationed in times square) for 8plus hours with millions of people to listen to crappy "pop artists " and watch a ball drop.  Only to leave at the exact same time as everyone else and suffer on an lirr train back to the island.

    One other obvious point is that Ray Shero is a fvcking coward.

    the owners should put him on the hotseat for these results and his inability to react.  Most bosses in a results driven profession would've been fired by now with 0 action to try to fix the situation.

    They actually looked pretty good for a minute or two. I think they’re too reliant on Hall. They’re always looking to pass to him. I think we’ll be better off with him gone. Maybe people will shoot the puck more.

    they have been for multiple seasons, they did the same when kovy was on the team and were to reliant on him

    "And you'd have to say, giving up the first 6 in this game is somewhat of a bottom".  Oh Dano….

    Im sure there's something in the color commentators contract to not come straight out and say this team sucks.  Chico was like this at the end as well.

    Yea, but Tennyson was the guy in front of the net that should have stopped Pageau.

    But as a goalie at any level you need to hug the post.  It's even worse to give that up as a butterfly as that's their bread and butter easy saves.

    Blackwood really just isn't remotely capable in the shootout.  Hell of a move there, though.

    Hall so far in his own head with that attempt. 

    GG boys, we may not win 25 games this year.

    Not a blackwood fan but hes 100x better then cory the 5hole in the so.

    I do.  He has shown that he can get a very poorly coached team into the playoffs on his own.  There are very few players who have shown an ability to do that.

    Get coaches who know what they’re doing, and everything will get better.  It would be an absolute travesty if we gave away a player of his caliber because of John fvcking Hynes.

    Goalies are the most important players on the team. People love to rag on  kk, but he was a huge reason they even made the playoffs.  Cant make the playoffs without a good goalie..  not taking anything away from hall, but saying he solely got them there is wrong.

    Yes, I'm a goalie, so I'm biased in the though that goalies are the most important players.  

    Doesnt matter as we played the same system then as we do now with the poor defense...  making the playoffs trumped the poor system so hynes got a free pass, last year was blamed on talent so he got another free pass.  Wonder what the excuse will be this year.  And this is on shero as well... he will be out if he keeps Hynes and things dont improve
