  1. I may be in the minority but Josefson is who I thought we were loosing form the start. After the Mueller trade it I am closer to 66-33 Josefson - Merrill now. He plays well in all situations. Just can't score. I know, get hurt every time he actually gets on a roll. Is he injury prone or unlucky? I also know quite a few would be happy to see him go(which I am not one). I also thought we were gonna make 1 or 2 more more moves before the protects were in so what do I know. Hopefully we make the 1 or 2 more moves during the draft because we just seem to have way too many picks.
  2. does Shero trade Larsson for hall? does his free agency strategy change? would we be a more attractive destination? imo our biggest hole is that neither Merrill, nor Severson have taken the next step and quite frankly look like they've taken a step back. Was pretty obvious that jelly wasn't the answer either but I loved Merril's game 2 years ago, what happened? Severson? I'm not a big +/- guy but -10 more than the next guy has to tell you something. Moore shows something at times (especially in ot) but he scares me in his own zone.(and I do admit, sometimes I just don't know if it was the
  3. off tangent question. name of the song as the puck was about to drop to start the third period?
  4. Is this the first move Shero has made the didn't involve us getting faster? Not saying it is a bad move, just seems out of character for Shero from what I've seen so far.
  5. As a northern Jersey guy I've always said that the Driscoll bridge is central jersey. Not the area or towns around it, just the bridge itself. I know it is a tad more complex than that, but it works for me. Please save the 'Taylor ham' line names until Zacha is on the lines (was hoping with patty also) so you can have Taylor hall with czech(cheese). Or is that pushing it? whats the goosey / mischief / cabbage night breakdown? Yes i'm getting antsy for the season, would like to talk about the team but have no clue what to expect again so I am reading back on off
  6. i really don't understand all the hate from the people who don't like that horn. I'm in 101 so maybe if I was next to it. Probably not as a punk / metal fan. I didn't chant along when it was rock and roll (and honestly I'm quite while watching and will talk hockey but don't usually yell) but I do occasionally now cause it pisses some of you off and it has been a fun cat and mouse game. start chant right after goal, > play music to drown it out > start after puck drops > announce goal to drown out chant > start chant immediately after goal is announced > ???
  7. As long as he tries to capture the spirit of the thing i will be happy.
  8. the team is only 32 years old, does it really need Viagra already? My rep called me this morning and told me they were just giving out a card. I prefer that but i do go to most games. He claimed that there problems last year and that this should speed up the lines to get in. Not sure how true that is because the metal detector seems to slow the lines down more than the ticker checkers. Although I do remember that the scanning usually took 2 or 3 times with an actual ticket and that the printouts caused problems at times as well. Nothing much to actually add to the t
  9. Was this move made because of the new org's philosophy of speed? I liked his game the first year, really didn't see much this year. I know nothing of DSP so I am looking for the reasoning behind it, not judging one way or the other. Joe Was this move made because of the new org's philosophy of speed?

  10. i would like to thank legal weed because there is no other way that we would have gotten a 3rd even it is a year away. Joe
  11. at game, haven't seen tv broadcast yet, inisital thoughts Severson looked hurt, or just off near the end of the 3rd. Seemed to be holding arm or something after a shift in ot. Trouble getting out of zone with puck behind net a few times. Think the NHL guys were out there so can't blame the rookies. Not sure if it was the Rags pressure, or more miscommunication, but it just didn't look good. Lots of wide open hockey in the third. No clue if this is our new style or just a bad period, we shall see Tieing a game in ot just hurts my head. just go to a 3-2-1-0 pt system so all of
  12. the you suck part was figured out by the 2nd or 3rd goal. I was at both games. had what, 5k at the absolute most Friday night. I assume your die-hard season ticket holders, the you suck after the vuvuzula guy was louder than when they just had the original song. They even cheered after the cheer to add extra troll. Really has turned into a Streisand effect. Its been fun to watch. vuvu starts after goal is announced, so mascot starts a drum 'lets go devils' chant. Devs wait to announce the goal during stoppage to go right music, vuvu starts at the puck drop. I see people yelling y

    Q & A with Shero

    wasn't an elderly lady that asked the question and there wasn't much attitude about it. I was wrong, was thinking of a different question. There was a bit of attitude, especially the In 'one man's opinion' question.
  14. If he is anything like Peter Griffin he will feel like he slept with Jagr. Better to find out now that she will blackmail someone for 2k then to hear a few months from now, oops, I forgot to take the pill.

    Q & A with Shero

    Small season ticket holder Q & A with Shero tonight. Held in 'Boardwalk' area. . Free pretzels, hot dogs and soda, water. Stage set up with 2 comfy chairs. Laughin interviewed him a bit, the fans got to ask a dozen or so questions. Seems personable enough, couple jokes. Talked about the changes to expect. Says this team isn't as far away as when he was with the expansion team. Expects to be competitive this year. Sees whats been written in the press and is trying to motivate the players off of it. Can't remember the exact quote but something along the line of just because it is

    Devils sign PL3

    before I look? He an ex Penguin? I'm guessing 75 - 25 he was. Yes he was. Still shouldn't see the ice for that stupid instigator when the team was short handed few years ago. Doesn't matter how good of a fighter you are, you just have to know when it is needed(that was definitely not the time). Yes it is needed at times, yes you can't be a liability on the ice. PL3 didn't do either well. Maybe there will be some deboer - clarkson magic and Hynes gets PL3 3 goals. Wouldn't shock me a this point, already in shock and have no idea how this season will play out.
  17. http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/articles/2009/11/10/a_special_breed/?page Story I mentioned in other post. From a article with some other interesting stories from when he was inducted into the HoF joe
  18. highly recommended . Can we ban Chere from, this site. He is such a troll now. 'Meadowlands Coliseum'? Shero is kinda funny. ' I was thinking, “What the hell did I do wrong? I’m not even in the league! Not mentioned in his piece, who was the player (Billington maybe?) who brought is fiance to meet Lou before they got married. Not sure if was for his blessing, or to discuss it, or just respect, (like meeting his parents)y. Anyway, Lou kicked the player out of the room for a few minutes to talk to the woman and she refused to tell the player what Lou said till this day (or at leas
  19. was more the fact that a trade offer leaked than the offer itself. No rumors of Lou to toronto today. That is how Lou operates, so io guess I did need the sarc tag
  20. why do people keep mentioning long hair. We've had players with long hair before. Peluso comes to mind immediately.
  21. I will miss Lou, He started the rebuild (even if he didn't say it) with the trade for Cory. Just look at the D and their age. Maybe most people want a full rebuild, but how many fans are gonna sit though that. When johnny mac had that disaster of a start they couldn't give away tickets. How long have the isles been rebuilding (been hearing they are taking the next step for years), Oilers? Rebuilds are crapshoot. Other than detroit, we have been the model franchise for 20 or 30 years. Rangers missed the playoffs for 7 straight seasons and for as much talk as their fans have had. 1 f
  22. Since this thread has already been derail, I'm gonna babble. on topic Gelly, until this year, I thought he had more value to another team then ours. Yes, he has a shot. that's about it. No knock on heart / effort / desire or that kinda attribute. Just doesn't seem to get D. Just doesn't seem creative enough on O to offset his D liability. There was a stretch where he played well though. I think he was paired with Larsson for a stretch(maybe 5 - 10 games). I've been saying to package him for a while so the people near my seats so when he does play well, it is discussed. Not sure if
  23. I admit, I Iaughed. no opinion on the signing, gotta see the whole picture 15 or so games into the year this year. Joe
  24. So you are saying he has no home?
  25. Just a guess, but Camm would get first dibs. That said, I don't see all of the old traditions out the door. And I'm ok with that. Youngish franchise, why mess with what little traditions we have. Happy with pick as I ever am on a draft day. Usually takes a few years to see.
