    John Hynes Signs Extension - Star Ledger

    This reminds me of my favorite historical anecdote from Tsarist Russia. One day a Russian noble-woman's lover was on trial. The trial didn't go his way and she appealed and got this response: "Pardon impossible, to be sent to Suberia." So she had a forger remove the comma and instead place it elsewhere. She took the note to the prison to free her lover, since it now said: "Pardon, impossible to be sent to Siberia." A little comma can make a big difference too!

    Schneider: done or finished?

    It is a real shame, but I’m not at all surprised. I posted this THREAD back in 2015 and was eviscerated. It was basically the last time I created a topic (I don’t need any more strangers being a$$holes to me). I argued then that this team was not going to be a contender before CS was no longer a top level goalie. Consequently, why not trade him for some younger, longer term talent that will be part of the building pieces going forward. I don’t know what we might have gotten for CS back in 2015, but it is a helluva lot more than we will get now. Frankly, if we had traded CS for just about any decent talent we would be much better off. A defenseman? We need that. A forward? We could use depth and it might have freed up a draft pick to use on our anemic looking defensive group. Or maybe some draft picks. Who knows, maybe we draft a goalie who will be with us when the Devils are truly ready for a cup run in a few years. As it is, we got nothing.....

    Suggestion for tickets

    A friend of mine is coming from Australia back to the USA this November to visit my wife and I. She was here for the Devils cup run in 2012 and started to like hockey, so we want to go to a game will she is here with her fiancée. However, I don’t go to many games and we usually just wait for my wife’s work to have cheap options for Devils tickets. We can’t do that this time and other than buying tickets thru the main site I don’t know if there are other avenues for getting tickets, like maybe a place where STH who aren’t going sell tickets or something? I’m probably grasping at straws here, but thanks in advance for any help.

    2018 NHL Draft Thread

    Yea, but how many biology nerds have an enforcer waiting around to help them? Come to think of it, I just realized what all those unemployed NHL enforcers can do now.

    2018 NHL Draft Thread

    Just so long as you remember that once upon a time that was our franchise..... just pointing out that the Scouts/Rockies/Devils weren’t really considered a winning franchise until the mid-90s. Until then we were just a bunch of perennial losers that were perpetually bad with a few odd good seasons mixed in.

    2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    I have to say that now that the Devs have been eliminated it would put a little smile on my face to see Winnipeg make the SCF and win. Not only do the fans up there deserve it after how many years they've had to support mediocrity and how they lost the first iteration of the Jets, but you know a SCF in Winnipeg would be a nightmare scenario for Bettman. Anything that Bettman hates is probably a good thing by my reckoning.

    2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    Points conceded, but don't forget that in addition to getting a better draw of talent they were also able to finagle trades to collect draft picks (and some developmental assets if memory serves). So while they do have work to do, they have far more in the way of assets to cover their losses than any expansion team before. Is it a low bar? Yes, I concede that, but imho they weren't given just a bit more leeway than past teams; they were handed a wonderful position to start their franchise. My guess is that they tail off as they lose some of the best of their current players or they simply age. However, if they draft and develop well they should recover quickly and return to being a surprisingly strong team. Tough to say given that these are largely unknowns, but if I'm VGK GM I would like my chances.

    In fairness, calling them elite is probably over the top, but you have to admit that Vegas has been handed the easiest, most cream puff expansion in NHL history. Hell, maybe in all sports history. I am sure that every team that has ever gone through the expansion experience (and that is most now) is looking back over their early struggles and cursing their rotten luck at not getting the VGK's sweet deal. Of course, the flip side is the Devils might still be in Kansas City had they been honestly competitive in the mid-70s, so we all benefited in the long run. Still, it was painful until they became competitive and Vegas will never know those tough years.

    Lowest amount of shutouts since the 1990/91 season

    But look at the bright side we're not Edmonton. Come to think of it, it is amazing how often I think that.....

    You'll never win with Schneider

    Actually, I really hate people who complain about when I complain. They're just a bunch of complainers!

    You'll never win with Schneider

    Because the bar moved. We came into the season expecting little but when the team exceeded expectations that raised the bar for what everyone expected of this team. You could argue that this is merely the lack of objectivity of a fan at work, but Shero has also demonstrated this with his recent moves. If he was still okay with another playoff-less season just building toward the future then he wouldn't have made some of his recent moves geared toward trying to give this team a chance to remain competitive down the stretch for this season. So clearly the bar moved for management as well (and for all we know ownership and the players are expecting to perform sooner now).
