  1. Two friends can't make the game. Seats are next to me. Section 131 Row 4. $80 each.

    My Belief!!!

    “I believe in this team. I don’t allow what other people think or say to get in the way of my belief.” - Lou
  3. Since the fans have no voice in the bargaining but are the 3rd party...this idea sounds cool. The problem I will have with hockey is I pay game by game since I can't get season tickets. I am getting comfortable with that money in my pocket.

  5. Regardless of comparing the two areas, I won't go to a game at Barclays because I fear getting robbed around The Rock.
  6. My letter to the Devils PR department... To whom it may concern, I want to make you aware of the following. Yesterday , Wednesday 24 Oct, I was listening to the Hockey Night In Canada Radio show on the NHL Home Ice channel on Sirius/XM. It may have been a re-air from the morning or live, but I heard this at 4:25pm. The radio crew were on the phone with Glenn Healey. They were discussing the Islanders move to Brooklyn. Discussing how the move is away from their fan base, the question was posed to Mr. Healey: Who will be going to these games in Brooklyn? His answer was, "All those people who don't want to get robbed in Newark." The hosts laughed hard, but more in shock of that comment. But Mr. Healey thought was was hilarious. This is a national show on satellite radio that paints a negative picture of the Devils and your premiere arena to people who are too far to see for themselves how great the area is. This comment was unnecessary, incorrect, irresponsible, and quite insulting. A comment like this is just as damaging as Barry Melrose's stupid witticism. Please research this for yourself and address as publicly as it was made. The state of hockey is pretty bad right now, and this is just salt in my wound. Thank you.
  7. So where's the party at tomorrow? TA? Looking for a place to watch game 3.
  8. Are there any live feeds of the press conference? I looked on the Devs' site and doesn't seem there is one on the multimedia page.
  9. At the risk of posting too many links, check this one out from the manufacturer. They time how many pours in a minute. Grinon Industries
  10. Here's a better link of this in action...
  11. Congrats. My two newest Devils fans arrived 27 July. How old do you think is good for the first game?
  12. Even if Lou could tweak the deal and make it 15 years to appease the league, I believe he cannot and should not. Previous lengthy contracts approved by the league have set precedents that perpetuated more lengthy contracts, so here we are. There is currently no limit for term of a contract nor age a player can be under contract. If Lou were to change the length of the deal for the league, he would be setting a new precedent himself. Adjusting the deal to what the league approves would be helping create an unofficial cap on the length of contracts and extended contracts would not be taking players past 42 (age cap). Adjustments to Kovy's contract already in accordance to the letter of the CBA creates precedents on term and age limits post facto. The NHLPA must realize if Lou were to have restructured the contract the league would only be creating the types of limits that should be collectively bargained but have not been.
  13. Is he married with kids? Isles would be the least disruptive if he had a family. Plus he could be a top 6 there instead of 3rd or 4th liner with the Devils. EDIT: I am assuming his family would live in NJ with him specifically because of the NTC.
  14. Lou said himself these contracts should not be allowed in the NHL and should be changed in the new CBA, but now is totally legal. I believe he knows what he is doing and this will all be good.
  15. I finally feel like the Devils are a team that can score some goals with consistency. I hope the Josefson, Tedenby, and Eckford turn out to be icing on the cake.
  16. I don't know if I am more happy we have Ilya or we may be about to get rid of Rolston.
  17. I've been buying cards the last few years, but have been completing UD sets. Don't know if I would have picked up that box. But finding some old Devils cards is kinda cool. Makes me re-think passing up a cheap offer like that.
  18. What's the purpose of this thread anymore? Does anyone think he will not sign with LA? How many more pages after he signs with them?
  19. I read there is a potential lock out in 2012. Is this simply a possibility because a new CBA needs to be negoatiated or are there specific issues the players currently have with what's in place? I thought the league was moving along well since the lockout.
  20. After the current stalemate holds for a while longer I see Kovy considering the shorter term option to see who else jumps in. This way the saga gets more ridiculous.
  21. I was at both shows in the area. Dream Theater totally kicked ass with their 50 minutes. Iron Maiden was great, although it seems many people complain about the setlist...(not enough as Bruce said, "fossils from 1984.")
