  1. make hamilton say no. i'd trade for kessel if the price is low enough. i'd consider RNH for 3C if the money works correctly. look to minny to check price on dumba.
  2. actually wore it to the game on tuesday
  3. well, i have a reverse retro holtz 88. but i don't regret it....yet.
  4. donated - @DevilMinder - i think you could also just do a similar post like this once or twice a year and you'd almost certainly get the annual costs covered users. no shame in it of course. hell, i gladly do every time you ask and i'm sure many other do as well. i know that in the past you've offered ad-free experience for those that pay. you can also install software that won't allow ad-blockers to work but don't know if that's really worth it. i assume that just showing the ads is nothing - you need clickthroughs which i'd think most on this site won't do. keep us up to date to make sure the year is covered at least.
  5. in normal days past, visiting teams would always stay at short hills hilton accross the street so seeing visiting players at the mall was a fairly regular occurrence. i remember seeing pronger at the apple store and asked him to go easy on the boys - one word response: "nope."
  6. great thread - it's like a/s/l (dating myself there) 44 - Married w/ 3 daughters. Most know - STH since '98 when i graduated college. Short Hills so have seen my fair share of Devils as members of town (currently, Zajac, PK, Schneider (still here), Brylin) Own my family's business - Capitol Lighting & 1-800lighting.com Love this site even before it was this site!
  7. this has as much to do with the weather as it does the fact that the devils are showing an outbreak. so i wouldn't lose sleep over the devils getting punished some how.
  8. i'm fairly certain this is Fisher's (it's his site) shtick that we all missed as the podcast has been around for a while. its either a complete mispronunciation like "mic-LOD" instead of "mick-CLOUD' or wrong syllabic emphasis like su-BAHN instead of SU-ban. he doesn't do it with everyone but there's just enough to make it seem like he doesn't actually follow the team that much (which of course he does). i've learned to get past it as they're takes and comments are about 75% right on which is a higher percentage than most.
  9. https://twitter.com/BOSHockeyNow/status/1349734748537585667?s=20
  10. i don't get the PLD speculation - if there is one thing the devils don't need, it's a center. why trade jack or nico for him? you wouldn't. and assuming neither of those are shifting to wing, while i suppose the prospect of three centers being 13, 86 and PLD would be amazing, i just don't see it.
  11. Let's hope Lindsay Vonn = Brooke Shields.
  12. its not heat pressed - it's pro-sewn by coolhockey. the 88 won't look good if i change it. if i'm that miffed by it, i suppose i could change the nameplate but again, i won't. the reverse retros were limited edition and they're all gone now and supposedly not making any more. if holtz ends up wearing 10, and he's awesome, i'm sure I'll eventually get a 10 jersey with either home/away or whatever they change to.
  13. it is dark but clearly green - it came out great. i could, but i won't. i knew what i was doing and was prepared for him to wear 10 or another number. as long as he's not tedenby, i'll be happy with it and even wink/nod to myself if he doesn't wear 88.
  14. Got sh!t on Twitter because it’s assumed he’ll wear 10 and Bahl will wear 88 but whatever. it’s worth the risk to get this guy
  15. i don't hate it - should create a lot more intensity. I wouldn't mind if they keep this idea going forward and just throw in 1 game against the west (alternating each year who gets at home) and 2 games against the other division. obviously go back to regular divisions when travel permits next year (all canada division stinks under normal circumstances).
  16. i was going to - had a hughes in my cart and got distracted. now they're gone. i don't love getting from NHL shop as they just iron it on and don't sew it. I'm ok to wait a little until one of the shops in Canada can get it and do a professional sew job. also - i am legit thinking about taking the gamble and getting Holtz 88.
  17. love the complaints. you'll all get one (as will I).
  18. notice they're all indo's and not canada - i'm sure covid played a role in that. production in canada is probably an issue
  19. you wonder if for a throwback, the devils just do this color scheme and put their logo in it?
  20. Bratt and Blackwood will be signed for 22-23 for at least $7MM in cap Hughes will probably be at least $6MM himself.
  21. signing bonuses are lump sum payments (done usually at the beginning of the NHL calendar year which is usually July 1st or so), cannot be pro-rated in case of season shortening or cancellation, and are buyout exempt. that's why you do it as a player.
  22. this is what i was getting at. you can use stats to paint a picture and give you greater probability but that just doesn't always work out. its also about recognizing that counting stats like shots aren't necessarily in a vacuum. to wit: again - i really don't want to speak for tri, but I'll say that he very much did NOT say kovy didn't have a good 2012 playoffs. quite the opposite. the 2012 team was pretty much all kovy, unreal luck from salvador and CBGB becoming the hottest line for 6 weeks. tri's argument about kovy was that while he had good shot totals and counting stats, they were inflated because of just how much TOI he had and that, on a RATE basis (stats/60), he wasn't as good as it seemed. basically, there were plenty more players that accomplished more on a per 60 basis). Now I will argue that being able to play outsized minutes (just like maintaining an abnormally large shooting percentage) is a skill, I will concede that being able to do more on a per 60 basis is overall more valuable.
  23. he was in chat for the draft (along w/ mantz, sarge, guadana). he still lurks. not trying to speak for him, but if you appreciate how much luck and randomness is in hockey, you'd probably appreciate his point of view more. i still think we've got some of the old timers that lurk - there's just not as many posters with not a lot going on in the hockey world. i've certainly posted considerably less even though I'm on the site every day.
  24. part of the buffalo thing nobody is talking about - Hall lives in Toronto in the offseason. It's a 2 hour drive or a 20 minute helicopter ride. for one year - i bet that helped with "why Buffalo". i don't think anyone else had the cap (real or internal) on a contender.
