  1. Chico's Coming Back!

    I feel pretty sure I've shared this before, but years ago my wife and I were at the airport coming back from Christmas in NC (where our families are). The Devils had played the Hurricanes in Raleigh the night before, and we happened to be on the same flight as Chico and one of the TV production guys. I believe Chico would have been perfectly happy to sit there at the gate all day long talking to us. So incredibly nice. Several years later I happened to run into him in "Championship Plaza" before a game. We spoke a bit, and I mentioned having seen him at the airport. Suddenly a look of recognition came across his face and he said "Oh yeah! I remember that. And how's your wife?" Now, of course, he could have been faking it just to be nice, but the fact that he asked me about my wife makes me think he really did remember. I was pretty impressed. I can't imagine how many fans he must have talked to between those two encounters....
  2. Chico's Coming Back!

    Looking forward to having him back.
  3. GDT: 9/21/17 NJ Devils @ Les Habitants

    And we will take it.
  4. GDT: 9/21/17 NJ Devils @ Les Habitants

    Due to circumstances beyond our control we had to give up our season tickets this year, so I feel relatively confident this will be a Cup season. If so, you guys can thank my wife and me.
  5. The Devils Uniforms

    Well, as a 6-year season ticket holder I don't think I qualify as "casual." But I will cop to not having much of an eye for (or interest in) fashion.
  6. The Devils Uniforms

    Man, you guys are a tough crowd. I didn't see the game the other night, but I watched some of the highlights. If I hadn't already known about the change, I'm not 100% sure I would have even noticed.
  7. Anybody Using the MSG GO App?

    Nevermind. Further reading tells me it is not compatible with AirPlay, so I'm no longer interested. Sorry to waste everyone's time, but I can't find a way to delete the thread. At least, not from my phone.
  8. Anybody Using the MSG GO App?

    Wondering that the quality is like? And I read somewhere that it doesn't allow Airplay. Is that true?
  9. Bryce Salvador to join Devils' broadcast (Replaces JMac)

    Just to be clear, my comment about her looks was in response to Satans Hockey's post, not yours. As you say, all I really care about is how she does her job, and I think she's fine at it. I'd agree she's nothing to home about, but she gets it done well enough.
  10. Bryce Salvador to join Devils' broadcast (Replaces JMac)

    Ah, well, OK. I don't really see her that way, I guess. I think more in terms of how she compares to the other on-air hockey personalities in the area. Just one man's opinion, of course, but I think she fairs pretty well in that company. I guess I don't care so much what she looks like.
  11. Bryce Salvador to join Devils' broadcast (Replaces JMac)

    What's the problem with Deb? (Not trying to be argumentative; legit question.) I think she does a pretty good job.
  12. No More Hard Tickets

    Could be. My Ticketmaster login from within the Devils Account Manager is different from my regular Ticketmaster login, and for whatever reason the Ticketmaster app won't recognize it.
  13. GDT: Game 6 - Devils vs Coyotes - 7PM

    Seat location is the only reason I renewed this year, and I think it's probably not going to be enough to hold me next time around. My wife's work schedule makes it nearly impossible for her to get to weeknight games, and now that they've made it harder to sell (or even give away) the spares I'm expecting it to be more trouble than it's worth going forward. We'll see how it goes this season, but I believe this is my farewell tour.
  14. No More Hard Tickets

    At the risk of being Captain Obvious, I'd remind anyone with an iPhone that you can save the tickets to the Wallet app* on your phone and you won't have to log in over and over and over in the Devils app. I imagine you can do the same on an Android phone, but I don't have any first hand knowledge of those. *As far as I can determine, you have to log into your account via Safari (or whatever browser you use). The Devils app doesn't seem to have a button to save to Wallet.
  15. GDT preseason 10/5 vs Islanders

    Kind of amazing the score stayed so close all night, given that the Devils had almost a ful period's worth of penalty minutes. On the seemingly rare occasion that they were even strength, I thought they didn't look too bad overall. (More or less agree with all Sundstrom's observations above.) Nice to see some good speed on our team after several seasons of ... well ... not very good speed.
