  1. iirc Lou had a lot to do with the new arena, so the corner cutting in terms of quality and amenities is no surprise. It's Lou, and the team was in a more precarious financial position back then. Still to us when it opened it was still an upgrade over the bland and generic Brendan Byrne...but yes the new place did not age well and upkeep was totally ignored. But how much of this is the same story with every other newish building that opened from 1995-2010? I've heard similar stuff said about TD Garden, the Leafs new arena, the renovated Garden. A lot of newish buildings have actually been through a renovation.
  2. He's just a Wilpons pet...who knows maybe just his presence down there is an attendance boost? He still does have his loyal supporters. But from his own personal standpoint he just got married...I can see this (at 31 or 32, however old he is) being his last shot before he pursues broadcasting or something else full time
  3. He allowed 5 goals on 19 shots against Toronto since the Buffalo game. His save percentage this year is like .880. He's not an NHL player
  4. we got a guy coming off consecutive shutouts and you put the subhuman turd in? How about...playing the guy who's red hot?
  5. goal #2 was time for Blackwood
  6. Louie Dung already proved long ago he is not worthy of life. Pull him and just dump him in a river somewhere. I never want to see this sh!tstain in a Devils jersey
  7. I just pray whoever does buy us has a shred of emotional maturity, and understands the value of representing oneself as a classy, PR conscious first rate franchise. I'm already dreading what lolmets twitter or Instagram nonsense that's going to have us ducking for cover this year...but it's definitely coming.
  8. Those quotes are absolute nightmare fuel. This is what we all suspected, we all feared, but probably didn't really actually think was truly true. But it seems like every word of it might be. And the think with Jeff is that he's not some young kid, the guy is pushing SIXTY and is some petulant man-child.
  9. And we already got our gut punch with the Cohen thing falling apart. I do feel though that we'll have new ownership before the end of the season (or be in the midst of some kind of transition) maybe it won't be Cohen deep pockets but...I think better days are ahead in terms of a competent ownership group Glad the Beltran stuff is behind us. Whether it was him, or Beltran...it's going to be very very hard to be worse than Callaway at managing this team. Especially late and close games in terms of the pen I just pray our injury luck is better. Even middle of the road injury wise would be a step up from the devastation of last year. And the bizarre freakish injuries can please buzz off...
  10. Great job by Blackwood there stopping the penalty shot
  11. What sounds to good to be true usually is. Maybe it's some sort of negotiating tactic going on but come on now...Manfred step in and get this done YOU wanted Beltran fired and we fired him Now you get us our owners
  12. Yea. An uplift from them (and getting better goaltending...at least average goaltending over the course of the season) could go a long way in quickening a turnaround. Would be nice if Hughes can take a big leap and put up 60-70 pts next season. If Hischier can be a 70 point guy. Guess we'll see. But I do love what I've seen from Hischier of late.
  13. That's very sad. Actually the crowds...haven't looked so bad when I've tuned in for a home game. But I guess things are pretty dire Other than that one year...Devils hockey since 2012 has been bleak and hopeless. They need to start winning and it doesn't look like consistent winning and exciting hockey are especially close.
  14. I've seen flashes from Subban of his old self. That game he played against Nashville a little while ago he looked pretty damn good. Probably an "I'll show you guys" moment. But since...he's just kind of a bland disinterested shell of his former self.
  15. ha. True. I have to give some credit to the Yankees their analytics and advanced scouting found a ton of diamonds in the rough last year. They were killed by injuries and didn't miss a beat. Urshela, Voit, Tauchman etc they just found one after the other that they plugged in and produced
  16. Marte worries me with what his career trajectory could be potentially. 31. He doesn't and has never walked much but does get on base generally. But if that bat slows down those K's will be up in the 160's or 170s possibly. And he won't be walking so he'll be pretty useless. And while he has power it's never really been great power
  17. Yea that shocked me too. I mean seriously 50 games into the season you have to be pretty inept to not have 1 second unit goal. That has to be an NHL record (if such records are even kept)
  18. There isn't, and supposedly the Diamondbacks wanted two of our top 5 prospects. For a 31 year old. That's a no. I'm not saying I wouldn't have done it under different circumstances. If our prospect pool was deeper. If we were on the cusp and thought he was the final piece...but not right now
  19. Brown wasn't trying to hit Vatanan there but man was that ugly and irresponsible
  20. Good start to this game. Chances early on Dano is very hard to listen to.
  21. Well then enjoy the all star crap. In this world there are going to be people who disagree with you. You have to accept it without resorting to personal attack tantrums
  22. maybe people just don't want to watch low quality garbage. Yea let's attract 5 casual female fans at the expense of 1000 real fans. Great strategy
  23. The 3 on 3 garbage has made the all star game even less exciting than it used to be. Somehow. just cancel this already
  24. Why are women playing the most wretched slow 3 on 3 hockey I've ever seen? They're boring. TV off. Absolutely wretched. This is the NHL skills competition so why are they forcefeeding hockey that would lose to most boys high school teams around America and Canada
