  1. I'm jumping in here late to the autograph talk but I actually went to one of the previous Rico signings at SMU. My wife bought me "the photo" for Christmas one year and bought the non-auto version and was mad at herself because she wanted to get me the signed copy. I came across an ad for a signing at SMU the following week and decided to go. My wife loves Rico but was working. When I got there it was pouring rain and the line was around the building and up stairs. It was nuts. There must have been 100 people or more ahead of me. Maybe way more.All standing out in the pouring cold rain. It was hard to tell. Anyway I finally get up to meet him and he was the nicest dude. Asked him for a quick photo and told him my wife was going to be so jealous. He signed the photo as if he were signing the very first. Nice and clear and even asked me which color marker I'd prefer, making a recommendation on which he thinks looked best. He's exactly the kind of guy you come to expect from hockey players. Down to earth, loving life, and recognizes how lucky he is to be playing. He was also great with all the kids there to meet him that were so nervous they could hardly look at him. I'm not a huge auto hound but I'm glad I went that day. When my wife got home that night and saw the photo where I left it, only this time it was signed, she did a double take. When I showed her the photo his assistant took I didnt know if she was going to cry for missing meeting Rico or be happy I got it signed. $25 well spent. Thinking back on the few times I've had getting autos or meeting players most have been cool - Salvador, Ron Hextall, Bernie Parent, Grant Marshall. All those Devils alumni ambassadors have been great. One guy that wasn't the nicest was John Vanbiesbrouck. Kind of an ass. But everyone has off days so maybe I caught him on one,
  2. Knew Devils needed a D man but god damn. Crushed. Rico was a huge fan favorite. Probably a good team move for the Devils but this one stings fandom wise.
  3. Great win for the boys last night! What mystery pucks did everyone get? Wife got Santini, I got Butcher.
  4. So I was lucky enough to grab a couple of tickets for Friday's game that have Platinum written on them (Sec 18 Row 12). Was surprised to see this since I thought only the first 5 or so rows got this access in this section. I'm guessing this gives me access to the platinum bunker lounge below the black seats. Do these tickets also let you enter through the VIP entrances? What time do they kick you out after the game? I did some reading up from older posts that mentioned the platinum club but I don't recall seeing this. This may be my first and last time with this access
  5. That's awesome news! See ya InBev beer! Can't wait to grab a Head High. Never thought it would happen.
  6. I read recently there are many more NJ craft beer options at the Rock this year. I think I saw at least Kane and Brix City both had accounts now. Can anyone confirm and know where in the arena these are?
  7. Was on there the minute non-presale tickets went on sale and theres nothing left for Elias night. Gonna have to keep an eye on the Hub throughout the season. Bummer.
  8. Good to know I have to be Johnny on the spot that day! Thanks for the heads up
  9. I think your estimates on pricing are probably about right. And I'm with you on just biting the bullet on whatever they cost. How fast do you think the individual tickets for this night sell out once on sale?
  10. Guessing tickets for this are going to sell out real quick and be insanely expensive on the secondary market.
  11. It was ehhh last year. Parking was tough, the beach was very crowded (realize these are common weekend issues at the shore and not the Devils fault but worth mentioning) and my wife and I had to wait a looooong time for the food. They ran out at one point and took over an hour to restock. The VIP area seemed fully stocked though. As others have said there were a few players sprinkled around but no one you couldn't see at any other Devils event (i.e. the usual suspects). I did think the free t-shirt was pretty cool and they actually had many different sizes. I think with a few tweaks they could solve some of the issues from last year and add a bit more activities.
  12. One thing I think Adidas did get right was removing that Reebok apron bottom and making all the bottoms straight across.
  13. http://www.northjersey.com/picture-gallery/sports/nhl/devils/2017/06/20/new-jersey-devils-a-timeline-of-jerseys/103039486/ higher res look at multiple angles here better not have fvcked with the number font.
  14. As many others have already said - not a fan. Looks like a practice jersey. Many of the other jerseys do as well. Hockey jerseys have always stood out to me as the most creative of the pro sports while maintaining a semblance of tradition or legacy. Save for a few newer teams that is. By and large these look like cheap practice jerseys. Basic in the worst of ways. Redesign for the sake of redesign. The exception to me is the Avs who went back to their best uniform design.
