  1. I used to love to post in here and read the opinions, but I agree with a previous post… this forum is the same 3 or 4 guys arguing about everything and being cool using v in place of u. Used to be a cool place for an out of town guy to follow the team. I checked in here to see if we moved Zacha and for who and see, like the Devils, nothing has changed.
  2. I cannot believe NJ got 2 points in this game. They looked horrible. Going to be a long rest of the season.
  3. A theory why hockey is so high https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/12/04/hockey-covid-transmission-outbreaks/
  4. Good for you. For me it would be halfway through the season. As long as we are winning they can out all the small ads they like. I spend my time trying to find the puck.
  5. Like I said, some people love to complain about everything. For context simply read the posts above! I left this forum years ago because of the difficulty of having a civil discussion in here, been lurking for awhile but things never change. And StarDew I understand where you are coming from... my first game was a Rangers-Golden Seals game at the Garden. Talk about dating myself lol. I'm no whipper snapper!
  6. I was not a fan of the Scouts or the Rockies; I was a hockey fan and followed the sport. When the rumors started about relocation to NJ I started to follow the Rockies and became a Devils fan as of day 1.
  7. Actually the Jersey, or Leeds, Devil is a creature said to be roaming the Pine Barrens in South Jersey, making green a very appropriate color, if you believe the NJ Devils refers to that not Bettman as they said when the franchise arrived.
  8. I don't understand what all the rancor is about the Devils honoring past franchises by wearing jerseys. What, you are all such devoted fans that the sight of your players in another uniform offends you? The team does it to sell merchandise and yes, to make a select group of fans happy. Like StarDew, I am one and still alive. Funny, people are all for the Christmas tree jerseys but not the Rockies jerseys. I didn't realize the younger generation were suc hockey purists. Or, just maybe, some people love to complain about anything.
  9. When I see a new GM drafting a 17 year old no one has heard of, despite what this forum thinks, I think its a (relative) good thing. The simple thing to do it draft the player closest to being NHL ready to get the team a couple of more wins and save his job; the correct thing to do is to look a this team, realize it is going nowhere and draft the player with the biggest upside that won't help for years but has the chance to be an impact player. Fitz drafted what he thought would help the team most in the long run, not the short run, and as our record is likely to be horrid for the next couple of years he will be on the hot seat and didn't flinch. Does it mean this guy will be good? In no way but he didn't just draft the guy the scouting services had highest to make himself look good. Embrace the suck.
  10. Lost in the sense making the playoffs next year would be a success... and 1/2 the teams make the playoffs. Time is needed for the new pieces and Hughes to grow and that won't happen in a year. The moves being made should be looking 2 years into the future, making that team competitive for the division. Next year is just too quick.
  11. Having stopped posting here and mostly lurking, the one thing I notice is there are a number of posters who are very unrealistic about what players are worth. Since this team appears to be going nowhere then, logically, every move is a mistake. This is a lost season... and so is the next. Try to get players who you build with and embrace the suck until they arrive.
  12. Since every team in the NHL would love to sign last year's MVP I think Lou would do it to improve the Leafs, not screw the Devils, as would every GM in the league
  13. I just want to get this straight; there were, like 4 good free agents, some who just reupped with their teams and people are upset we haven't made moves?
  14. Way, way back in the day - in college - we used to sit in the players and wives section during the game (a friend of a friend was Steve Shutt when he played for the Habs and I was in Montreal). The WAGS were amazing.
  15. It's a joke an expansion team is rolling thru this league. Think maybe they got to poach a little too much talent?
  16. Don't get down. For the first time in years this team is making real progress into a team that can make some noise.
  17. Merry Christmas. It won't be 6 years until post again. Just trying to get the lay of the land on the posters before jumping back in.
  18. I have a tattoo of a pig on my arm... so I won't cast any dispersions about tats! Nice colors.
  19. I laugh when people insinuate I'm jumping "on the bandwagon" since I've been a fan of this franchise from day 1, living thru the years of Cirella being our stud defenseman to watching us win a meaningless game to get Muller instead of Lemieux. When you live out of the area and don't interact with the fan base in anyway except for a blog its very easy to lose touch. Like NCDevsFan, I gave up Center Ice because I got tired of spending my evenings watching a horrid, stagnant team and found other things to fill that time; for you youngsters, work, marriage and a wife, family - well, they can fill up that void rather easily. All my family in NJ passed, last one 4 years ago, leaving no family in the area I grew up, losing the games I caught with the guys I grew up with when in the area because I'm not flying up for the pork roll and Devils games lol. Caught the Devils in Chicago last year and I usually make it up to Raleigh to see them play the Canes but if it doesn't fall on a Friday or Saturday night I won't make the drive. Does it make me less of a Devils fan then the die hards with the logo tattooed on their arms? Sure it does, but I'm OK with that. I paid my dues. I paid for that seat on the bandwagon years ago and to you smug posters on here, I hate to tell you but my seat is better then yours
  20. To be fair, I was a fan since day 1. Yes, day 1. No one can question my ability to watch a horrid team lol. It's on my resume as a Nationals and Buccaneers fan.
  21. I have not posted here in years, sort of lost interest in the late Lou years while frustrated with the development of the franchise and just didn't put in the effort. Was in Chicago last December and caught the Devils up there, saw some talent I liked and watched a couple of games when I got home. Have to say, although the returns are way too early, I really like the direction the team is headed and like the tempo the team is playing and I see good things on the horizon for this team.
  22. Thanks unknown poster amd DevsMan
  23. thats it but no name on the back
