The Marty Night thread


Recommended Posts

I'm new to all of this. I want to get a shirt, banner, puck, and other merch. I'll be at the Prudential Center around 4:00 on the day of the game. Should I be worried about supply? Would it make sense to make the hike to the Prudential Center in advance?

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

We're two and a half weeks away, so I figured it's time for this thread. We can talk about all things Marty Night here (are you going? Where are you sitting? Coming in from out of town? All the detail

I think that if you get there early enough on Tues, you should be OK...I can't see them being sold out of all that stuff by the time the doors open (really sh!tty planning and ordering on their part if that were to happen).  This definitely isn't a "Camp out for a week to get a Playstation 3" kind of thing, as far as the merchandise goes.  The fact that the stuff currently listed isn't going for all that much (all things considered) tells me that the sellers know the stuff they have isn't yet hard to find.    

BTW is there is a link to that snapchat?  Didn't even know they had one.

You don't have to worry about a banner, everyone in attendance gets a free mini-banner.

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?

I would say Saturday we will have a good idea. The last few days I checked the GFS model and it keeps showing a strong low pressure system off of our coast which is not good at all. Really hoping these models change.

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.

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!

I don't get the use of 1990.  I know that was his draft year and the year he technically joined the organization (like Daneyko) but it seems dopey to me.  I would rather that they all list the years of the first and last NHL regular season or playoff games for the NJ Devils.

I was hoping that they would splurge and redo the years/fonts to have all four be correct, have only 1 of each and put them down on the end on either side of the Cup banners (Daneyko Stevens 95 00 03 Niedermayer Brodeur).  I obviously didn't have my hopes up.

The years don't bother me that much.  Whether Niedermayer's banner said 2004 or 2005, I wouldn't have really quibbled.  I can understand either view though (years actually on Devils or years within the organization). 

Like your idea for the retirement banners being with the Cup banners.  It will look a little unbalanced once Elias' number goes up.  I wonder if Lamoriello will ever get some kind of honorary banner.

From what I've heard, the devils apparently have gotten wise this year and ordered a ton of the pucks, banners and other special merchandise for Marty night, so there should be a good amount available at the den on Tuesday.  Hopefully this will avoid issues of hoarding to sell for big bucks on eBay.

who on earth likes the Devils, the Mets and the Patriots?  :wub::evil:

One guess...

But to briefly re-cap:

Became a Devils fan because my parents took me and my brother to a Devils-Flyers game in December 1983 (I was 13).  Devils got waxed. I had long forgotten the finer details, but thanks to the power of the internet, I know that the exact date was 12/10/83, the score was 8-2, and the loss dropped the Devils to 5-22-1.  From that day on, I was a Devils fan.  Watched games when I could, but couldn't really watch them with much regularity until 1987-88, when my dad caved and hooked us with SportsChannel, and I could drive myself to games, as I had my license at that point. 

Became a Mets fan because my uncle took me to a game in 1978 (he had taken my brother to a Yankee game that same year).  Was only a casual fan then, but latched onto them more in 1983 when Strawberry came up, and Hernandez was added.  Gooden followed in 1984 (and of course other key players were becoming part of the team).  Gooden, Strawberry, and Hernandez were my early favorite Mets.  Also liked Darling and

I became a Pats fan initially because of the Pat Patriot logo (the one before the Flying Elvis).  As a kid I loved all things Revolutionary War.  Another kid in my neighborhood was also a Pats fan because of his dad, so we were the only Patriots fans in our school.  Was a big fan of Tony Eason early on.  And Irving Fryar and Craig James.

Good, there's really not much reason to offer this stuff in low quantities.  I think the eBay hoarders who thought they were going to move this stuff for huge dollars are in for a rude awakening...they might make $5-$10 bucks each on a few pucks or slightly more, but I'm glad most people will be able to just go to the Den and buy this stuff for retail.

Hey guys,

   very excited for the night as all of you are too.  do you guys know for sure if we will get the mini banners and the nice photo that we got for the other 3?  I truly hope we do, although I feel a little nervous with different ownership.

   Although someone working there is paying attention to details by having the same style retirement puck for sale that we had for the other 3.  Same thing last year where some of the 20th anniversary pucks had the exact stanley cup image on the back of the puck (from the stanley cup puck series)

   I also would love to see a patch and a pin for sale with the Brodeur retirement logo as well as a puck with just the retirement logo in a bigger format (instead of a smaller image and saying NHL and official puck), I'd prefer a bigger logo and just the logo.

   by the way CR76, awesome pics of your basement.  looks incredible!  I'm a big movie nut where I have mostly movie stuff in my basement, but I do have a section for the devils (and have the banners, 2 conn smyth plaques for #22 and #4, and many devils pucks from anniversary's, playoff series they've won, opening night pucks, the retirement #'s, etc)

Yes they will definitely have the mini banners for everyone and most likely have the photos as well.  My question is why would you think this ownership wouldn't do it?  I mean they did give us bobble heads this year for the first time in a solid decade.

i have so far seen images of the official game puck, the Marty 30 retirement number puck, a few banners, shirts and flags available for sale.

I'd be stunned if mini-banners and the photo aren't a part of this.  This ownership has not shown themselves to cheap out on the fan experience.  Makes for really nice collectibles too.

If you're referring to the red-faced pucks (like the ones on my wall), yes, those are apparently already available at the Devils Den and in much greater supply than the previous ones (I had to get the Stevens, Daneyko, and Niedermayer pucks all on eBay).  The Brodeur pucks are EXACTLY the same as the previous ones, in terms of overall appearance.

Thank for the kind words re:  my basement.  I've a movie (and music) nut too, but my basement just evolved towards sports-theming.

hope you are right pal.  To answer your question, no specific reason or anything I heard, just hoping the new owners won't change certain things (like I hope our team will always have this same jersey and logo) too many changes in the NFL and NHL for team logos and jerseys.  our's is perfect and has been perfect for the last 20 plus years.  Hope certain sga's remain the same (exact mini banner and photo for jersey retirements, etc)

so no specific reason to think that, just hoping nothing changes with certain traditions like mentioned above.

Management has already confirmed the mini-banners.  The picture I could take or leave.

its nothing against you, but I just find it odd/funny that there is a decent sized portion of our fans that think the worst of our owners when they haven't done anything to justify it other than not giving out tickets like free candy and changing the goal song.

that's awesome they confirmed that, just curious where they confirmed that?  

no problem, I don't take that personal.  I don't have any specific reason other than I just have a negative approach to things sometimes until proven different.  too be honest I don't know too much about the new owners and was just assuming more than anything.

Hope you are right about the new ownership.  Yes I was, and as you said I'm glad the overall appearance is exactly the same.  Keeping it standard and having it look great with the others.  I was able to get #4 and #3 in person on those nights (although it was chaos getting them that night).  #27 I didn't see anywhere that night and was pissed, but found it on e-bay a few months later (not sure if they had that puck that night, I looked everywhere and couldn't find it).  so I do have that, but had to pay more.

your welcome, your basement does look amazing, even nicer than mine.  I love sports too, but I decided to go with a movie theater open space type of theme where I have a lot of open space and a big tv, etc (movie framed posters and different collectibles related to movies).  but I was glad there is a small side room in the basement which I've used for my devils pucks, banners, bobbleheads and things like that.

I also agree with what you said about how it feels weird this day has come.  I remember going to games where 87-88 was the only banner and the devils were lucky to be a 4 seed in the patrick division and lose in the first round.  to then see them become a contender in 93-94 and continue that trend for almost 20 years is surreal.  the last 4 years have been tough, but for them to go on a run like that for so long is so hard to believe that it happened and equally hard to believe that it's now over.  Only the wings had a better run in that 20 year period (and as you know our team beat them).

 going back to 93-94 the beginning of #30, as weird as this sounds I didn't even like him that much his first year.  I was a big fan of Chris Terrari and was mad that Marty was playing so much over him at that time.  Thankfully I was wrong and he went on to surpass everything Patrick Roy was doing at that time (which he was the class of goalies in the early 90's until Brodeur and Hasak started to take over).  to think back on that time that the devils were going to have a goalie that became better than Roy is just insane to think back on.  that's like having a guy starting out on the devils becoming the next Gretzky or Lemieux within the next decade plus.

Not to mention they've done a nice job giving the arena some freshening up (we've been over the Fire and Ice Lounges and how both started looking gaudy and dated very quickly) and improved the overall food quality and options.  They've let their GMs spend.  They might've had a few corporate-type missteps early (probably got some bad advice with what NJ fans are supposed to like), but I think they've been fine overall.  I don't have any complaints.

This is silly, but they are not exactly the same.  They are missing the stray white notch on the lower right side of the outer red ring.  It drove me crazy that the notch was there on the first three.  It will now drive me crazy that there is not one.
