The Marty Night thread


Recommended Posts

Let's say it snows... Like REALLY snows. When could it conceivably be moved to? I mean, you can't have this kind of event in the middle of a fvcking nor'easter, you just can't. It would be a logistical nightmare. Seeing as how they planned this for the middle of February when snow is always possible, I hope they at least formed some type of a backup plan...

Let's see if this works: Brodeur's retirement "package" will slot under Stevens, and Elias' (can't see his number not being retired, hopefully next season) will be hung under Daneyko.  I threw so

OK, here's what I think might have happened: [the day before the Niedermayer jersey retirement ceremony] "Mr. Lamoriello, the banner people are here with the Niedermayer banner.  Do you want

Btw, the official game puck that will be used next week is already on eBay. Someone must have an inside source...

Yep, that's the one. Definitely gotta grab one of those next week, I'm sure the Devils Den will have them.

I notice on the email for the Monday night event that it says "Please be sure to bring your Membership card" in bold. Does this mean I have to be present in order for everyone I've invited to get in? I'm asking because I'm intending to be there pretty much right at 5:00, but I know some of the people who I've given tickets won't get there that early.

Are you still in Miami or are you back up here? 

I think there's been njdevs GTG/Meet & Greets here and there.  There were photos floating around here from one from about 7-8 years ago.  I've met some peeps from here, but not too many.  I've met Has, DaneykoIsGod (really wish he'd come back), iamtheprodigy, and Colin.  Also some guy named Andrew who was a big Elias fan (he doesn't really post anymore).  I've met a couple of others who've long since left.  Can't even remember their usernames.

Got a job in NYC, so I'm back! I would love a meet up now that I'm in the area. We should all pick a game to go to

So I have been looking at the future models and they are projecting a nor'easter off the coast near the 9th and 10th.

If this comes to fruition lets all pray to God it is on the 10th and not the 9th.

I heard some more stuff about this storm this morning, and the possibility of a Tuesday storm seems to be gaining some traction. Man do I hope it misses us...

Just got my ticket and my 4 wheel drive car is in the shop so a snow storm is likely

More Marty retirement stuff on e-bay:

Four listings for the red pucks I mentioned earlier (would love to know how the listers get their hands on this stuff).

One pretty cool item is the 27" x 37" version of the Brodeur retirement banner.  Don't have the room for that myself.

National Weather Service forecast for Tuesday says " A chance of rain and snow. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 39. Chance of precipitation is 30%. " Doesn't sound too bad.

You guys are looking at a basic forecast, look at the model runs of the GFS and EURO. They are hinting at a potential noreaster, if these models continue to show this over the next few days you will see that basic 7 day forecast change.

But please for the love of God I hope the low pressure will either go far enough out to sea or stay far enough inland to give us rain.

I never put the effort into learning how these things work but the construction company I work for also plows and the forecasts they look at are more often then not more accurate than the national weather service and the like.  Right now the ones they use show snow as well. 

I live in Sussex but took the day off, as well as the other 3 people that are going with me.  I plan on getting there early but I don't care what happens, I am going to be there, even if I have to buy snow shoes.  One thing I hope doesn't happen is if the Rock doesn't get packed.  It would be a shame.

Zubie, what day would be safe to say those models are 90% accurate?  Sunday?

Wow, quite a few pucks- whoever the sellers are obviously know someone on the inside somewhere...

If there is a crippling nor'easter, they have to rain check it to another night. You cannot have an event of this magnitude in a major snowstorm. It's not fair to anyone involved.

The amount made we wonder if they're already available at the arena...that some fans bought them last night and then put them up as a "why not, I might get someone to bite" kind of thing.  Part of me is tempted to snag one (just in case), but I've gotta think they'll be available at the time that I'm going.  Planning on getting there right around 4:30.

True, that's certainly possible... I was thinking of doing the same, but I'm hoping to be there by 5 myself, so I'd rather wait and pay a normal price for the pucks rather then shell out eBay prices if I don't have to.

Agree.  Makes far more sense to wait.  I'll be there on Saturday anyway with my daughter, so if they're available then, I'll pay a nice, non-ebay price.  If not...I'll take my chances on Tuesday (assuming weather doesn't bugger this whole thing up).  Find it hard to imagine there will be a Walmart stampede for these things...

Having people near the banner really gives you an idea as to the scale of these things.

The Nieds banner being off seems destined to be one of life's great mysteries.  I think my story is actually somewhat accurate, in terms of the very basics:  the banner got there very late, it was immediately obvious that it wasn't correct, but there wasn't any time to do anything about it, so a "they'll never notice the lens is gone" approach was taken.  I'm guessing the final year did read 2005 and not 2004 initially, and something was done last-second (probably right at the Pru Center) to fix it (why else would the "4" be that much different than the rest of the numbers)? 

I just wonder why the banner wasn't corrected in the offseason.  It really does look odd next to the others, and Brodeur's being correct will only add to that.

Pucks are already available in the Devils den, boys. I saw them on their official snapchat last night.

Yep, had a feeling...just some guys on ebay hoping to make a quick buck.  No one's biting though.  Thanks for the head's up!
