  1. This is the same fvcking crap that cost them the other games. Now arizona is gonna come out with all the momentum, what is with this f’ing crap?
  2. Well, does anyone on the board have any goalie experience? Similar to the guy in Chicago. Shouldn’t we have one of those in NJ for when the Devils don’t want to play Cory?
  3. Early goings of games or seasons? I’m guessing you meant games because this season couldn’t have started worse. I’d be ready to ship him anywhere at this point. Is Duncan available?
  4. Either than the fact that the Devils have to play him since he is the “other” goalie and is housing Hughes, can anyone tell me why you would ever want to see Cory play again? Unless it’s in another team’s uniform. Does anyone in here have hope that he will ever be considered a reliable goaltender again? I’m really not trying to sound ignorant. I really am curious on everyone’s take.
  5. I once posted that in here as a question, something along the lines of... What is the significance of the song Even Flow by Pearl Jam as it relates to the Devils? Someone got it correct by stating that was the song played right before they scored the cup winner in 2000, what a moment. Also the last time I believe any of us saw Melanie Brodeur on TV
  6. Ahh, Champps. Me and two other friends used to meet up there pretty often after work when it was still opened before it switched to that Cuban place. Went there once but I hate Cilantro so don’t have much of an urge to go back. It’s called Havana or something like that, right? To me Champps best dish was the appetizer sampler. Other than that I can’t say I ever really had a good meal there. That was one thing we always said about that place. The food was mediocre at best but an awesome place to watch a game. Guess we just had to set expectations. Do you agree? Best game I ever saw there was the Giants beating Dallas in the playoffs during their Super Bowl run.
  7. At this point I think they should try for an offense minded defenseman, Subban can’t do it by himself. Desperately need another D-man or two. Either that or you def need another solid goalie, Schneider is as good as done. To me he’s not even a reliable backup. Need two solid goalies and Schneider is anything but. They should look to deal Hall while teams are still willing to provide a return. Just how I feel. Do you disagree with any or all of what I wrote?
  8. I recently wrote something very similar about him going to Colorado. To me that makes the most sense in his mind (if I had to guess). Colorado greatly improved their team, young team, great record, will prob be a guaranteed playoff team and will be so for the coming years. This gives him the best chance at a cup. Unfortunately for the Devils this is gonna set them back a number of years (really getting tired of waiting) but I’m sure he sees they’re not near ready for any kind of playoff run. Sucks but that’s how I see it.
  9. Come on, there’s more of you out there, wanna read more replies about my inquiry of where you were during the cup wins. Definitely more enjoyable (for the most part) than the bickering that’s going on concurrently (which seems to be rather often)
  10. Not sure where to put this but I guess I’ll put it here... Where were you the night of each cup win? 1995: Was in my parents old house in NJ watching the game on a 50” TV that was on wheels which fit into a wall that was built out to house the TV in. Was watching with my dad and one of my oldest friends. What a moment since it was the first one. 2000: Was dating this girl who I met in college but didn’t start dating until after I graduated. Only dated for 3 months but she was crazy. Actually thought we were gonna be out that night and I was gonna miss the game. Luckily we did go back to her parents house. She knew how I was when it came to the team. I watched the game upstairs in their guest room, no one was allowed to come in, including her. Her parents went to sleep pretty early (obviously not hockey fans, neither was she) and she was downstairs with some friends. When Arnott scored I yelled out but had to be subdued since her freaking parents were sleeping. What a moment. Then went downstairs with the biggest smile on my face. Prob the best moment of the 3 months we spent together even though we were apart for most of the night lol 2003: Was at the game. People tried talking to me during the first intermission. I wouldn’t talk to anyone, wouldn’t move from my seat. Did nothing and just waited for the 2nd period to start. Started to relax a lot more after the 2nd period. That last goal by Friesen let all the excitement out. Just wish they picked a better song after the clock hit 0 such as We are the Champions or something related. Didn’t they play “It’s My Life”? Correct me if I’m wrong though. Not sure how that relates to winning the cup but ok. Mo matter how good the 2012 game vs the Rangers was and games of that magnitude, those 3 games still have to go down as the best since they were cup clinching.
  11. I stated it before the game that the Devils were always soft on the penalty kill, would give the opposition all day at the blue line and would allow them to setup the play which often resulted in a strong scoring chance. Tonight they were def more aggressive, when they were on the kill they didn’t just sit back and wait for them to get a shot off, got in between passes, better at blocking shots, smart with clearing the puck. That has to stay consistent. They took a lot of penalties tonight so they gotta clean that up but much better job with attacking on the PK.
  12. I’m wondering how in the world this team has the capacity to play for 60 mins. Truly feel they don’t. With what happened against Boston and Buffalo, either than it being a complete embarrassment, is the team in essence coming out and saying “we absolutely have no where near the talent of those teams and if we played them 100 times we wouldn’t win 1”. That’s what I gathered from those games. Even though they lost in OT look at the way Colorado played against Pitt, they didn’t sit back in their own zone when the Penguins controlled the puck, they closed in on whoever possessed it. Watch the Devils, to me it looks like any opposing team can hang around the blue line with the puck until their hearts content without being attacked. Now you would think that would be fine since that limits the threat of scoring from the point but it gives everyone that much more time to make a perfect pass and the Devils also do a horrible job boxing out around their own goal so often times there’s always a strong scoring chance. Those losers behind the bench need to tell their players to attack, don’t sit back all day waiting for the puck to come close enough to eventually swipe at it and miss. Just sick of it. I need to be the coach for 1 night, not for the X’s and O’s but to yell. Maybe tortorella’s approach has been right all along (pains me to say that)
  13. ESPN also agrees that the season is done...just look at the team’s slogan https://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/27861284/nhl-power-rankings-1-31-poll-plus-every-team-slogan-be To me the team is so lousy they should make them 33 in power rankings even though there’s only 31 teams in the league. Just to put a significant buffer between all the other teams so the rest of the league doesn’t feel insulted.

    Fire Hynes

    Someone email the hashynesbeenfiredyet.com site to John and let’s see what he writes back. Gotta imagine his email is jhynes at newjerseydevils.com, right? Friend of mine said he heard a rumor, Schneider for Quick. No idea if that’s true or not but I’ll take any rumor about anything right now.

    Trade Taylor Hall

    Five words: Hell to the motherfvcking no Are they good? Lol I take it you’ve seen the movie Funny Farm? “The trick is you’ve gotta cut em way up here”
  16. ajsgolf

    Trade Taylor Hall

    I see Hall going to the Avs with almost getting nothing in return and then winning the cup. Just how this season and franchise is going. If I was him that’s exactly where I’d want to go with the potential they have. Although the food in Colorado is pretty bad.

    Fire Hynes

    Start getting signatures in Championship Plaza (thinking they may want to change the name to just Plaza) requesting everyone to chant throughout the game “fire John Hynes” in place of “let’s go Devils” at the next home game after Thursday (hoping he’s gone by then).
  18. How exciting, about to be the only team left in the league without a win. Can guarantee Chicago doesn’t blow a lead at the end of the game like the devils do. Can’t get over how many leads in the 3rd period I have seen them let up in the last 1-2 mins of a game over the last 5 years or so, mind boggling and beyond pathetic.

    I say it’s Bylsma, would that be an ok option?

    What the fvck is Harris and Blitzer doing? I feel like they’re basking in this and hoping the Flyers win the cup. For some reason I just don’t trust them.

    “John Hynes, John Hynes, John Hynes Better be fired We don’t need no water let the motherfvcker burn Burn motherfvcker...buuuurrrrrrn”
  22. Didn’t watch it, what did he say that made him sound mad? Never heard him sound mad which pisses me off, he’s too much of a professional, I’d be fired within the first 2 mins of being an announcer.
  23. I know, that’s why I said don’t attack me but I’m just sick of this sh!t Burns was a great coach and trust me I’m not making light of him. Hynes is an f’ing joke. I was told in every game the opposing team has scored within 30 seconds of the end of the 2nd, makes for all the momentum in the third. Or maybe in every comeback game.
  24. My friend asked if Jacques Lemaire is still available. I then asked (don’t attack me and some may agree) if Pat Burns is available. Def a better option than that pos behind the bench.
