  1. Definitely miss some of the old timers. I think I can find the meet up pic we did like 15 years ago somewhere if I really looked. Wish insanity gallops was around more often. Same with mrsheeps. And Don was my man. Still keep in touch with PK on social media. God her posts were the best.

    So, the jerseys that everyone hates have sold out on NHL.com in all but the smallest sizes within a couple of hours (the blank ones, anyway. Pre-customized Hall and choose your own player still available). 

    I suppose we don't know how many they had, maybe it was like 10 total. But that seems unlikely. 

    I went on around 6am and they were already sold out of 50s so I went for a larger size which said was in stock but then got bumped out. I checked again around 3pm and the sizes seemed to have replenished so I got a Hischier. We'll see what happens. I just want one to have one. That's it.

    That would be awesome...keep me posted? It's been too many years since we caught a game together!

    For sure! We are waaay overdue to catch a game. I'll keep you posted :)

    I really hope I'm able to pull a ticket to this come Friday, but in the event that I don't, if any of you season ticket folk somehow wind up with extra, do keep me in mind?

    I have 4 tickets...if for some reason my brother's gf can't go (which is somewhat likely) you're more than welcome to come with us.

    Mine worked fine, I have no rhyme or reason as to why it wouldn't work for people. I used my pc and had no problem, maybe it was a mobile website /app issue? 

    I dunno...it's possible. tried it thru the email on my phone and that didn't work, so I moved into the app which also failed. I used my laptop and at that point it would have been useless because the tickets were already well gone by then. Frustrating. 


  6. This was a strange but fun event. We got the $40 tix which apparently was a waste of money because a lot of people with the lower tier tickets were still hitting up the buffets and going into the lounge area. Whatever. ..I still had a blast.

    I bumped into Dano and got a nice pic with him (he seemed relieved that I wasn't asking for an autograph), and also got a pic with Driver. The lines for the players were a sh!tshow and no one knew what was going on...I guess Blandisi left really early but the staff ensured everyone he'd be back - which never happened. Oops. I got pucks signed by Kinkaid and McLeod. Didn't really have interest in Kapla or Santini honestly. Not for a scorching hot day at least. 

    My only gripe was that they couldn't provide water at a steady pace. We were all dying out there in the heat and a pitcher of water broke down into 4 cups. So..no one got water. And they barely refilled them. I finally gave up and just went to the bar to get water if I needed it.

  7. So...I was hoping to snag a few extra tickets to this game but my STH number came up as "invalid" when I put the code in. Apparently a lot of people had this issue as well. Really sucks. I'm glad I still have tickets anyway but it would have been nice. Oh well.

    Rumor has it all but 4-6 reps have been let go. I don't even know if my rep is still with the company anymore. Might shoot him a call later just to see if his phone is still connected. sh!tstorm is brewing...

    He wanted that third year. Good for him for finding it. A lot of San Jose fans are devastated right now. He was their Elias.

    Weird going back and looking at threads over a decade old. A few of the kept coaches and players are dead, the guy who started the thread became a Sens fan I guess, and it's interesting looking back on the dynamic of this place from back in the day. Sometimes I see some old timers around here complaining about how the board has changed, and it seems like a lot of people left because they didn't like what the place had become. I joined in 08 but wasn't active until 2012, so I missed out on those days. I bet if I stopped posting here and turned back up when the team was good and the atmosphere here was lighter and friendlier, I'd probably complain that the board was better when the team was terrible and we all hated each other.

     I'd be down to bring some more extra
    curriculars to this place.  Looks like we have a few more lousy seasons and a lockout to look forward to too, so why not.

    It's weird looking back at this thread. I've been on this board since it's inception, really. I legitimately grew up here. I was 15-16 when NJDevs first came out and I'm 32 now. I've witnessed all of redruM's crazy rants, fought with you all over the original NJDevs front page, got to experience djstubbs and par99, got to watch every single time Derek threatened to leave us,  and lived through all 5835 jersey fight and goal song brawl...hell, I could go on. 

    It's crazy to think back on how much we have all been through together. I've seen it all here. Hell, I was an administrator at one point even.

    You guys are all knuckleheads and I love this place for it. This has always been the best place to talk shop, and I firmly believe it's not just the best Devils forum, but one of the best hockey places period. Long live NJDEVS ha.

    You're probably right that he may not fit the style, but he will win 60% of his faceoffs and kill penalties better than anyone on the roster. Esp now that Boyle is going to plant himself right on that 4th line center spot for the next 2 years. I don't see josefson remaining after this signing. They may want to throw Hirschier on that 3rd line spot and I don't see Jajo here as a wing.

    Welp, you're already right because JaJo signed with Buffalo earlier today.

    So, I'm on vacation with the wife and haven't followed ever since we Shat the bed (haaaaa get it?). Anyone here with any realistic options that are still out there that we'll pursue tomorrow? 

    Also, does offer-sheeting anyone make any sense at this point? we swung and missed on sh!tinkurk, i have to believe there are other options out there. Hard to say I'd be confident going into next season with Mueller as our 3rd defenseman. 

    I think the general consensus is Franson at this point. People seem keen on a trade too but I'm not sure who they think we are trading to get a top pairing dman at this point in time. The social media websites are actually hilarious to read in this regard...getting a marquee player for a 6th round draft pick and Jacob Josefson's left-behind jock. Ha.

    You guys are right. Shero should have waived his magic wand and just made generational talents appear. Rebuilds usually only take a few months anyway. 

    This is unrealistic. Ray Shero would never use a magic wand. He'd pull the generational talents out of a black hat. Duh.
