    2018-19 Prospects Thread

    Was thinking the same thing. A little disappointed he won't be at the WJC. From all accounts, he is having a good season in their top league, so I thought for sure he would be there.

    2018-19 Around the League Thread

    Worry? What's to worry about? As long as we protect Nico and Hall (if he's still around), then they can have their pick from the rest.

    GDT: Devils @ Panthers - 11/26/18, 7:00pm

    This feels like one of those losses that is bigger than it just being 1 game. This feel like a breaking point loss, where things spiral out of control down the drain from here. I hope I'm wrong, and I've been optimistic that they would turn things around previously, but the feeling I had after last night's game is that this is going to be a lost season. It's one thing to lose to TB, but they are losing to teams that they should, and need to beat (FLA, NYI, OTT, DET).

    Too funny! That had been laughing my ass off at work!!! So VERY accurate, although he got the RSFS chant wrong.

    I don't think we have to tank, but if we are not in a playoff spot, or 2 -4 points out of one by the deadline, then I would trade off guys like Mojo, Greene (is there a market for him?), etc. and bring up some of the young guys to see what they have the rest of the year.

    GDT: Finally Back Home, Penguins @ Devils, 7:00 pm

    Just don't sh!t the bed like you did in 6 of the last 7 games. Lets go Devils!!!

    GDT: Devil's @ Sens 7:30, MSG+

    That's really interesting. Could some of that be attributed to Brodeur's ability to play the puck as almost a 3rd defensemen, leading to better and more consistent zone exits than when Cory's in net?

    Absolutely. And that line earned their ice time last night. The added bonus is, with the travel to Ottawa and playing a back to back tonight, its better to rest the top 6 as much as possible when you have that game in hand. A win all around for Hynes and the team.

    That was ugly, but they happen over the course of a long season. Flush that one and hope we don't see another game like it again this season.
  10. It definitely makes sense financially for the Devils. I just hope they don't turn the experience of being at the game into basically being at a sports book, just with a live game going on. I can see the constant odds being updated on the giant scoreboard getting annoying really quick, especially if it is on there during the run of play.
  11. L LOL! So they are basically turning the arena into a casino.
  12. Overall, I like the idea and sponsorship deal. I personally don't bet on sports outside of the odd super bowl bet, and will have no use for this lounge. However, having a mini-sports book style lounge inside the arena makes sense as the sport betting market in NJ is exploding and is going to be the largest in the country very soon. It will bring value to the arena and more money into the organization, which is a good thing. If it attracts more fans to the games (something I have a hard time believing will happen) even better. The 1 thing I don't like is the idea of putting betting lines on the scoreboard and having them there continuously throughout the game. It's not necessary, especially since the bets are all going to be placed through an app, which will have all of the lines already. Also, where is this lounge going to be located? Is this going to be where the goal bar used to be, or are they converting 1 of the lower level clubs and opening it up to all ticketholders?

    Home Opener

    Right now, they are calling for thunderstorms on Thursday. Nothing major, but it looks like rain throughout the day. It shouldn't be anything to worry about and you should be fine to travel down from MTL. It might be a rainy stay for you which sucks. They usually do the red carpet and then have a band and food/beer trucks in championship plaza for opening night, which is a fun atmosphere. But with the predicted weather, that likely won't happen.

    2018 Offseason Thread

    I have to agree with DM and MD2020 on this. It's a poor reflection on this fanbase that we can't sell out the home opener, especially after the exciting season we had last year, the entertaining nature of the hockey this team has been playing, and the optimism for this year. Although, technically, we did sellout our 1st game because our "home" opener was in Sweden on Saturday.

    Devils announce radio streaming agreement with Entercom

    That's what I would assume. They were basically off of WFAN for most of the games last year. It sucks because I would listen to the games on the FAN on my drive home from work.
