This ignore New York thing is ridiculous...     the lure for playing for NJ is you escape the media pressure but get all the benefits of living near NYC.  

If the Devils were located further south, I get it.    But when there is a path train connecting you to NYC...  guess what.    You're a feeder for NYC.

But showing an 18yo kid the Gap, or driving hours south to LBI...  or hiding out in the pines?    What on earth are you talking about.

Taking him to Philly is completely different.   It doesn't make sense beinh situated in NJ.     But if they played in Cherry Hill...  of course it makes sense.

as someone who lives at the shore... I think he could probably find something to do other than eat terrible pizza or go to tacky t-shirt shops, but that's just me. They should take him to the CHEGG and have him take the ludicrous challenge. lol.

I really don't see any problem with any of the promotional stuff he's done this weekend... it's awesome how much they are promoting him. This is what we've been lacking for years. Imagine if we actually marketed more during our heyday? All that I got out of today's stuff was that I really need to get to Hobby's soon.

I think the point thecoffeecake is trying to make is that we should be exposing Nico to the things that make NJ what it really is (The shore, Delaware Water Gap, Pine Barrens, Cape May, LBI, Ect.) before selling him on the "being close to NYC" aspect. I kind of agree with this sentiment but when you are trying to advertise him as well you are going to need to show him off at the bigger venues which NJ just doesn't really have so I can accept the public outings to the Red Bulls and Yankees especially with their friendly ties to the Devils.

Also if you idea of the shore is Seaside or Wildwood please take a pilgrimage to IBSP. It is your sacred duty as a New Jerseyan to fully understand the natural beauty of your state before you sh!t on it  because you only visit the trashy touristy areas.

The jersey shore is awesome, and people who piss and moan about the jersey shore are usually people I do not get along with. 

Agreed. It has its sleazy sections but everywhere does. Ive had lots of fun down there over the years.

A) Then why get upset about him being shown around NYC?

B. Take him to the shore and see how well it will go over explaining to him why he will have to pay to get on the beach and why the boardwalk is filled with tacky t-shirt shops, terrible pizza stands and shady games of chance.

Yea, those 4 beaches are a fun part of the culture of the Shore, and there mostly really excellent pizza options in those places, as well as seafood, cheesesteaks, hot dogs, and unique desserts. And you have to pay to get on the beach because maintaining safe and clean conditions on beaches isn't free. You'd prefer tax payers on the Shore to subsidize your vacation? If you prefer, you can go to a tacky beach in Europe owned by the adjacent club and covered in cigarette butts and other assorted trash. Or if you're that intent on not contributing to the protection of our state's natural resources, one of the best and most remote beaches in the state is entirely free. But I'll gladly pay my $50 a year to access Island Beach State Park and swim 5 miles from the closest development. Let me tell you how boring that is.

If our state wasn't so corrupt we wouldn't need beach access fees.  Every other state seems to figure it out without a significant tax burden, but ours can't.

I have been to many beaches in Europe and the Caribbean.  None are any more or less dirty than any beach I have been to in NJ.

Most beaches are administered by the respective municipality, so try again.

Keep dumping on the Shore as it's one of, if not, the only Devils stronghold in the state. When the Devils are decent, the boardwalks are PACKED with Devils stuff outnumbering everyone else. 

This is true, the shore represents when it comes to the Devils- particularly Monmouth County. I know for sure there are a lot of Devils fans in the Toms River area.

I'm ok with it in general, but not as the first thing he does as a Devil.

Well it wouldn't be njdevs if the Nico Hischier thread didn't devolve into bickering about New Jersey state landmarks.  Good job, everyone.

You don't have to be here if you don't want.

Yes, thanks, brilliant person.  This is the kind of devastating insight I expect from you, so thank you for not disappointing.  If you honestly think that having the thread about the 1st overall pick that the Devils just took on Friday - the first time they've ever had said pick - turn into talk about Island Beach State Park by Monday, you and I have vastly different opinions about what constitutes good discussion or a good message board.

Here, I can anticipate your cutting, Churchillian response to this:

"You're derailing the thread too!"

Yes, I get it, I get how this works.  I understand that by contributing this post, I am ostensibly contributing to the problem.  The reason I make this post and don't just leave  the board is that I like this place, it's still generally good, but a few people have sh!tty opinions they can't keep out of every thread, and it's a shame that this was one of them, and it's disappointing that no one wants to moderate this place, even a little bit, to make it better.

Wow, well, okay then.

I was just saying that if you're so disgusted by this place nobody's forcing you to stay. 

I actually like your posts, I've always been a big and oftentimes vocal fan of yours. Didn't mean to poke the bear.
