    GAME 4: Tampa Bay @ New Jersey. 730 PM EST, GOLF, MSG+

    LGD No stupid penalties, please (unless you play for TB). Getting to the rock from Philly can be done cheaply and easily if you can get to Trenton and take NJ Transit. $16 each way plus $10 parking.

    GDT: Devils@Lightning, 4/12/18, 7:00pm, MSG+

    LGD This team can win this series without miracles. They have peaked at the right time.

    John Hynes Appreciation Thread

    Coach of the year is a nice accolade but I think most of us would rather focus on the product on the ice. The playoffs this year was a nice accomplishment no matter how they turn out. The foundation is there now and I'll look to next year to see if Hynes can continue to get the production out of players we didn't think would produce at the NHL level this soon. Did the Devils make the playoffs because some players really stepped up and played out of their minds or was this the first step of many forward? To me next year will shine a light on the direction this team is going.

    We made the playoffs because...

    Because the sum of the whole was greater than the sum of the parts.

    The Ilya Kovalchuk Thread

    oh puleese, The Yankees have a well earned reputation for signing high priced free agents. Denying it is asinine. Listing current homegrown talent doesn't refute their reputation at all.

    Adam Larsson traded to EDM for Taylor Hall

    I, too, didn't think Larsson was a tradable asset but he has underachieved for years. You can blame system, youth, coach whatever. He wasn't a bust, I just think we were looking for Neidermeyer v2 (at least I was). Seems like a reasonably fair trade to me.

    The Marty Night thread

    CR76, back on page 2 you noted: "Probably had to do with whatever photos the artist was working from. He probably wouldn't even know the difference." I know the artist personally. He knows the difference in the pads. Marty chose the photo that he worked from which was from his last game as a Devil. He wore the big pads then and thus that is what he sculpted. As for arcade machines, for those interested in building one, check out this book (link). I used this and built my own. Built one with two joysticks, 7 buttons each, track ball. Plays lots of games.

    2016 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

    Nothing earthshattering but a nice return for a rebuilding team. The assets given up were non-essential and Shero got some picks that can be used to get real talent. Giving up on Matteau stinks not because I think it was a bad trade today but rather b/c of the cost to the franchise when they got him.

    Brodeur retires, joins STL front office

    Who knows all the reasons why. Still under contract? Blues want something for their money? Makes sense to me. While he is forever a Devil as a player, who knows where he'll be post playing career. I just want the franchise to get back to a contender status and if that means Messier in the front office so be it. I just want a better product then what we are getting now on the ice.

    Satirical Newspaper in Paris attacked

    Terrible event. Responding to satire with such violence is just simply beyond my comprehension.

    Are the Leafs in Chaos, and does Pete DeBoer have a new job?

    I'd stay away from Kessel, especially for the price suggested above. Talent is there, I'm just no so sure the head is.

    So Apparently The Rumor Is Kovy Could Be Coming Back

    Too much of a circus, imo. It would be a band-aid at best and a team killer at worst. The team got quite lucky in the way it turned out. Walk away Lou, walk away.

    congrats to the 2013-14 Champs, the Kings

    This is a good Kings team but we're not talking about Gretzky's oilers. The Kings are a very good team and one of the best this year. They deserve to be in the finals. For the record, however, the Kings only scored 1 more goal in the regular season than the goal challenged Devils. This is certainly a team that a goalie can steal a game against. If you read my post thoroughly, you'd notice that I was pointing out that a legend can be born by stealing a game on this stage. He hasn't so far. That's the point.

    congrats to the 2013-14 Champs, the Kings

    Bottom line: The queen has let in 8 goals in two games. For someone that is regarded as something akin to the messiah by rags fans, that is not getting it done. He's not the reason they lost the first two games but he's not cultivating a legend of being able to steal a game on the biggest stage.
