    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.

    Lube, dude, lube! I wouldn’t want to red about an industrial masturbation fire buddy.

    Yep, the white confidential sweater is for me. Can't wait to order one, but they won't tell me the price.....

    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).

    For me the last Flyers goalie that might have been truly great was Pelle Lindbergh. But the curse got him in a big way when he decided to merge his Porsche with a brick wall. Since Lindbergh the only goalie the Flyers have had that I think has been anything good I see Hextall and he tended to choke from time to time. Seems to me the Flyers used all their good goalie juju on Bernie Parent. That worries me..... how much of the Devils juju was used by Brodeur!? Yikes!

    About the Schneider deniers..

    It is a shame you missed the HoF career of Alain Chevrier. He was truly a monster in goal. In all seriousness, even at the Devs worst we’ve been fairly lucky in the goaltending dept. You’d have to go back to Hardy Astrom, IMHO, for when we really we talentless in net except for the Chevrier ‘era.’ And the Swedish sieve really played for the Rockies, not the Devils. Otherwise we’ve had (in no particular order): Resch, Terreri, Burke, Billington, McLean, Dunham, and finally Brodeur. All of those guys had decent to amazing nhl careers. In fairness, I don’t think any of them were not capable starters even though Terreri and Billington only ever started for a few seasons in their careers. So these guys basically represent nearly the entirety of Devs goaltending history. I think we’ve had it pretty good even when the team was bad almost everywhere else. Of course, those bad teams made some of the goalies look bad as well (resch being the prime example).

    He’s .001 down from his Devs career average!? He is clearly finished... over the hill. No way he comes back from that massive hole.
