    Media Guide

    I hate to bring a thread up from the grave, but I'm in the same boat. I have them since their first season in '82. I did find the PDF a while ago and downloaded it, but I can't figure out where from, so I uploaded it here: http://njdevils.info/downloads/guide I'm messing around with getting it printed... not sure if that'll get me in trouble or not!
  2. He may have been involved too later, but I remember when we first got the shootout, he played for a few of them... instead of Brodeur and, as usual, bandwagons were full. Speaking of which, are we still praying that Gio goes or are we on someone new?
  3. Can I vote for Corey Schwab? The best shootout goalie of all time? (someone here must remember the post suggesting we put him in for all shootouts because he was the best at it...)
  4. To be honest, I wasn't saying ESPN was the way to go, I was just saying Versus just doesn't have the coverage that other networks have. The NHL knows it, but the money they took in keeps them quiet. Just look at the TV records from the last All-Star game. I think the stat was something like 10% TV viewership from the previous all-star game? I don't know if this is feasable, but what about more network coverage? I'll be honest, the only thing I like about NBC's coverage is Doc.
  5. You've hit the head on the nail with Versus. But any time someone at the NHL opens there mouth to explain this to Bettman, he takes $3,000 from the money mountain he sits atop thanks to Versus and shoves it down their throat. I think its 1 point = 1 million people? Look at Wikipedia. It's explained very well there.
  6. Here's my 2 cents, because I just have to share... Mkae the crease 6 inches bigger. If the goalie has so much as an eyelash in the crease and someone touches them, goalie interference. There should be the usual stipulations, like if a player pushed them in to the goal, but if a player is standing at the crease and someone comes flying in and bumps the goalie because they had no other choice since the player was standing there, 2 mins for interference. Outside of that crease, the goalie is fair game. My next rule change as acting commish would be to get rid of the freaking tyrapizoid because it serves no legit purpose whatsoever and nix the instigator rule. You take a run at my goalie, I take a run at your head. This would be the end-all be-all of guys like Sean Avery and his idiotic ways. Incidentally, I don't remember the article, but I just read somewhere that Avery was called in to principal Bettmen's office after Round1 to discuss his behavior while in school...
  7. To show Sid the Kid will do anything for the sport! That's surprising innapropriate though, albeit hilarious!
  8. Hey thanks! I just wish I had more time to work on it. I have video clips from last season and just about all of this seaosn that still need to be clipped and posted... I am going to get myself thrown out of this joint, but let me start with the fact that I share Docs sentiment in that the instegator rule is a bad rule. With that said, I also understand the NHL's stance on it. They want to keep goons from taking over the ice. And idiots like Avery, although unique in their talent of idiocy, won't be phased by a good sever beating. That's pretty much what he's after and will wind up drawing more penalties that way. Here's my solution: remember the puck hitting his face the other night? The Devils should make it a policy that when shooting the puck, aim for his head. The face is preferable.
  9. Let's just say I was a little fan of Marshall. He did some interesting things, like the chicken dance... attempt to injure... Oh, and I just realized that it will be an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty: http://www.nhl.com/nhl/app/?service=page&a...rticleid=360438 I should really read before I post!
  10. First off, I remember an incident in which a player by the name of Grant Marshall received a 2 minute unsportsmanlike conduct for doing the chicken dance to a little known Ranger by the name of Kasparaitis. Second, he's not going to get suspended, and they are not going to make a new rule, but simply clarify that what he did does in fact fit the bill for inciting or unsportsmanlike. Probably more along the lines of Unsportsmanlike. And his teammates probably told him to knock it off because A) they don't want to get stuck with a stupid penalty to kill (for the 9th time) and B) They would be just as pissed if we stuck Gio in front of Lundy to do that same thing. Simply put, Unsportsmanlike is doing the act of something - well, unsportsmanlike! That was a little-league play he pulled and everyone knows it. EVen to dumbass himself, which is why he declined to comment after the game. And I can't say I blame the refs because chances are, 99.9% of the people out there have never seen a move like that in hockey ever before.

    I'm with you on that one. I'm not a fan of the guy and I did like Matt Laughlin mostly because of his fights with the Mavin, but he's a become a good enough intermission guy for me to actuall watch it and not mute the tv.
  12. On whether or not they are gay? Seriously, my prediction for the SC Finals (and you heard it here first guys): Devils vs Detroit Stanley Cup Rematch.

    Fischler will never die, come on guys you know this! Anywho, yes, MSG+ will continue to have its FSN affiliation to keep awesome programming like The Best Darn Sport Show this side of the Hootinany and no one will loose Devils games who have the Sports Packages that live outside this area. So don't worry folks, nothing will change in *that* respect. They do want to improve the content though over time, including perhaps some type of summer programming - except they lost it all - so I'm not quite sure what they are going to do there. Oh, and they are changing all the graphics for us because the standard working set is too crappy for the likes of MSG. I'm curious what they are going to call FSN NY 2... MSG++? Sounds like a bad programming language.
  14. AH the curse of a new horn... I'm guessing this is that new horn we were promised back when the arena opened? Why don't they just unscrew one of the horns on an NJ Tranist train (or several of them I guess we would need), and use that?
  15. Yeah I can't say I'm any type of authority when it comes to the rest of his career, but the '03 playoffs wouldn't have been the same without him. Thanks for helping the Devils get # 3!
  16. I don't know if I'm just too young or stupid, or if my personal bias plays any part in this post at all, but it always seemed to me that Scott Stevens became "Scott Stevens" here in NJ. Bobby Holik became "Bobby Holik" in NJ. Ken Daneyko, Scott Gomez, Randy McKay, Brian Rafalski, Petr Sykora all became "Ken Danyeko," "Scott Gomez," "Randy McKay," "Brian Rafalski," "Petr Sykora" in NJ. These guys became great playing for NJ, and then we lose them. Personally I don't think this is nothing new to the organization. I think it's been going on since at least 1995, but its more noticable now in the "New" NHL. By the way, does anybody have a different way of saying the "New" NHL? That phrase is starting to make angry. And you wouldn't like me when I'm - angry
