Devils resign eric gelinas to 2 year deal

Recommended Posts

Also: This forum has become so politcal it's unreal. Party lines drawn. Once someone says something you don't like, you no longer agree with ANYTHING they ever say in the future. Get over yourselves. Sometimes I think MB3 can be douche of epic proportions, but the next day he says something that makes a lot of sense. Tri can be so god damn infatuated with advanced stats and be right a lot about things, but that doesn't mean you cannot disagree and hold a different opinion without saying something stupid. Sometimes I've thought PK's rants and analogies were a total waste of time and other times I thought they were profound and eye opening. But they rarely come out anymore because of the little brats here without the intellectual ability to respectfully disagree with anothers train of thought.

Harden the hell up and stop being babies because one time someone said something and you disagreed with it. The next day they might have a great idea but you're too proud to turn around and agree with them on something else.

I don't use the ignore feature but for the posters whose posts I don't care about reading I just skip over them. It's really not that hard to do.

And it's usually the same posters who bring up the glory days of this message board and I guess maybe I'm remembering wrong but there has always been some people not getting along arguing.

There's a lot of causal posters who only show up when the team is doing well. It's just the nature of sports.

This place is still my favorite for over 10+ years now and nothing will ever change that for me.

Getting back to the thing that derailed this thread from the beginning, I've tried to make the first post of the Devils Off Season thread like a wiki page for all Devils news this summer. It's full of links, including the Mozik signing. Hope that helps for anyone else who has a question about any moves made this off season.

Lol well the thread has been successfully derailed and then blown up and buried. Tri is a great poster and anyone who's been here a while just has to know he's not one for the warm and fuzzies. Plus in general you just need to have thick skin to be a part of the Internets.

But still I think this forum is the best place to talk Devils, much better than some other cesspools out there that shall remain nameless. Sure we have some crazies here (myself included at times) but all in all its a good group of posters.

Anyway the gelinas signing is great, my only concern is if you pair him with either severson or Merrill it could hurt their development a bit because of how terrible he is defensively.

I do have hope for Gelinas. Sure he's not great defensively but thats something you can learn and a system can support you. Positioning, timing, gap control etc etc he will get better. What he can bring though is not something you can learn. Josh Georges will never control a PP or be an offensive dman. You can't learn that if it's not in you even if you "do the right thing" within a system.

I'd like to see how Gelinas adapts to a "faster paced, attacking, supporting" system. This is the perfect "Show me" deal and I'm very happy overall with what I've seen Shero do. It's a lot of the things that a great majority of fans have been begging the team to do for several years.

Back when I joined in 2010 (was lurking for about a year prior) this forum was A LOT busier and had a lot more posters posting on any given day.  These days it's a lot quieter and there are some of the subforums like the marketplace and around the rock that are virtual ghost towns.  There is a reason for this and this thread is the perfect example of why.

 

The reason is that the team has mostly sucked. Otherwise, the forum today is the same makeup of posters as a few years ago when you joined.

That's only a part of the reason.  There are more reasons why the forum is what it is today.

This is absolutely false. Many of the great posters back then were replaced by some not-so-great posters.

I'd imagine that if the Devils were winning (or at least interesting) you'd see new people register here more frequently.

 

Personally - I've always visited this place sparingly during the offseason.  People are bored, trolls are given more attention, etc.  Discussions aren't what they are during the season, which is kinda expected in an offseason.

 

I don't think anyone here is 'unfriendly'.

We get one of these threads every year or sometimes more frequently. If I banned someone every time 2 or three people decided they were a detriment to the forums I think there would be nobody left posting.

 

Some people in this thread casting the stones have been frequent targets of banning or limiting their posting abilities. You can't please everyone, but saying the forums are seeing less traffic would be untrue since our bandwidth usage has not gone down month to month since the lockouts. Sure there is a difference in posting amounts but I attribute that to if you have nothing nice to say about the devils (they suck) don't post.Name a poster and I can probably give you a private message of someone complaining about them; DevsMan, Triumph, martysb3st, hell even Moustic got one.

 

If you are so unsatisfied go elsewhere,  I didn't sign you up to a contract to browse this place while you writhe in agony reading the unholy words of someone disagreeing with you.

NJDevs is the best place to discuss Devils hockey anywhere on the internet. Love this place, and love interacting and talking with all of you. We may not agree on everything, but what fun would that be?

I demand to know who complained about our resident Frenchy so I know where best to direct my torch and pitchfork.   

But seriously, thanks for keeping this place running, DM. Always the first place I go to read discussions about the team.
