  1. Someone needs to explain the God damn absurdity of games being blacked out on NHL.com and ESPN+ where I'm at near Cherry Hill, where MSG isn't available. Is it literally impossible to legally watch Devils games in South Jersey?
  2. There was some buzz about Panarin and the Devils when he was first coming over to the NHL. I remember the thread here. He didn't want to come here then, at least. The Rags found another reason to roll out the red carpet for the 94 team last night. Is it that time of the month already?
  3. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/seven-notable-trades-ex-oilers-gm-peter-chiarelli/sn-amp/ Hahahaha, what a bum. I can't wait to see which franchise sinks itself hiring him this time.
  4. I use the sports reference sites all the time (usually the college basketball one), they're great. 12 games all year and your parents were worried about you getting homework done?
  5. I can barely remember the arc of last season, Jesus. Besides the Streak and Lemaire's 2011 run, my memory of each season is pretty much "we didn't make the playoffs, and we lost to Columbus". I'm exaggerating, of course, but that's all exceptional.
  6. I didn't love the Cory deal at the time because it was clear that team wasn't ready to compete. We saw this time and time again, Lou was willing to sell off future assets to patchwork a marginal competitor together to give him a few more years here. New ownership was in town and it was probably clear to him they eventually wanted to go in a different direction. And that's not to say at the time the trade wasn't a great value; it absolutely was. It just wasn't the right deal at the right time. We were in no position to be trading top ten picks for something that was maybe going to make us a bubble team. I don't think Bo Horvat was on the Devils draft board with that 9th pick, but how good is Vancouver feeling about that deal almost six years (holy sh1t) later. But no one saw this coming, obviously. This isn't some kind of "i told you so". Just unfortunate how it panned out, if we really have seen the last of Cory as an effective goaltender. Imagine someone telling you on the day of that trade that Luongo would outlast Cory.
  7. That was such a great tournament. That team wasn't as talented as the two that came before it (the ones that had Eichel, Matthews, Werenski, DeBrincat, among others just not on the top of my head right now), but they played with so much heart. I work nights these days and can only listen on NHL.com during the week (MSGGo has stopped working entirely on all platforms for me, and I can't risk a virus from an illegal stream on a work computer), so hearing our tv broadcast is an excellent treat for me right now.
  8. Scored three times in the shootout against Russia for the US in the semifinal of the 2017 WJC, one to keep the game alive and another to win it, and scored again in the shootout against Canada in the gold medal game. It was unreal. Steve said he scored in the shootout for Anaheim in his first game up before going back down.
  9. Still can't hate Troy Terry for anything. Wish he'd gotten his first goal against someone else, but glad to see him breaking in.
  10. 6 hours straight, talkin' clickity clickity clickity CLACK. Post of the year, thank you. @WaffleFries how about a craps table or two? We'd never leave Newark.
  11. fvcking saros, man. Coleman had no steam to pick up Forsberg on that goal Also, I do not like how Taylor is playing the half board on the left wing right now. A couple bad decisions on the power play and just wants to blindly throw it across the slot thhe last few possessions down there.
  12. I was across the street for Temple homecoming (did have my devils hat on), so I didn't make or see the game, but there was a solid amount of Devils fans down here.
