Going to cap this off at one time only. Cory might be back, and it could get expensive lol

Can’t remember @DevilMinder‘s info, does anyone know it for a Paypal donation?

It doesn't seem like we're inclined to stop mentioning it either lol. 

In your defense, it did seem a pretty unlikely comeback at the time...

Yeah, I can't say I blame you guys lol. 

A day or two after it happened I went back and read the posts leading up to and after that, because it was a Friday, late, and I had had a few drinks and wanted to see if I just made a really dumb bet, but I think it was pretty safe - you even want as far as to say exactly that, "your money is safe" lol.

Yeah, I mean I donated too, so obviously I didn't think it would happen either. I just wasn't quite as magnanimous as some...

Thanks to Nico, Crisis and the unnamed (No handle 1711 maybe?) person who paid up on their bets!

Quenneville, McLeod, Bastian, Carrick. $10 each if they score a goal in this game. $50 if all 4 score. 

I’m watching on a time delay, so this is good even if it’s already happened lol.

$10 tonight if every point scored by the Devils is scored by someone who spent non-rehab time in the AHL this season. 

Requires a minimum of one Devils goal, obviously. 

Also $10 if Gabriel has a Gordie Howe hat trick.

I'll buy the rights to njdevs.com and all of its intellectual property from DevilMinder for $5,000 if we win tonight by two or more goals, none of which can be an empty netter, and Yakolev scores a goal.

You know, I love a good bet, and I was more or less being facetious (though, I swear, I AM a man of my word, and that last bet I made weeks ago is/will be paid) and if this ends up happening I'll feel really good helping put Brad's kids through college lol, but after seeing our lineup in the other thread moments ago, I actually feel really good about this one.

Can't wait to win 7-3 with a Yak hat trick now!

This is totally going to make the game worth watching tonight. I totally love that the $500 bet did not teach you a lesson. 😉

As the official judge of these things, since its my thread, NJDfan1711 said he was being facetious, AND there was no offer by DevilMinder to sell the site (NJD did NOT offer $5,000 if he loses, he offered a purchase of the site for $5,000), this bet is NOT binding. Observation as to whether the terms of this bet are met will purely be academic. 

Unless DevilMinder offers NJD ownership of the site for $5,000, or course...

Agreed. Conditions were not anyway so it’s a nullity. 

Of course, our one point was scored by an AHLer, unassisted, so I paid my $10.

I just threw a number out there, it wasn't any true valuation lol, though, to be fair, this site isn't revenue-producing (other than the donations we all make, which lately has been plentiful lol), so you could probably make an easy argument for any number, really.

And I love that you found a loophole for me to get out of that bet, had it actually come true.  You should be a lawyer, oh, wait... :D

I had that typed out yesterday and hit reply before the game started, but the site threw an error about some certificate issue and then I couldn't get to the domain at all - must've been temporary because later on it obviously started working again.

It’s what I do, brother. I probably could’ve found one to keep you in also!!

in any event, the team hasn’t been good, but one thing has...this board. Personally, it’s the only place I come for Devils news and discussion since I hate social media, and I trust you guys to post any important Tweets. 

That said, we should make a final fundraising push to the end of the season to support DM and this board. 

We sit at 58 points after 64 games, with perhaps an AHL heavy lineup for the foreseeable future. How many points will we wind up with total?

Someone come up with a legitimate over/under for this and let’s get as many as we can to participate, even at $5 a piece we should be able to provide the site with some support. 

No bets yet, first let’s talk out a number. What do you think?

April Fools Day edition: $10 to the site for each of the following that happens tonight:

1) Mike McLeod scores his first goal (April Fools on everyone)

2) Pavel Zacha gets a hat trick (April Fools on me alone...almost)

3) Miles Wood  has a Gordie Howe hat trick (He's just a fool, in a good way); I'll also honor it for Gabriel if he winds up in the lineup last minute. 

4) Nico scores another OT winner (not shootout, 3 on 3; I guess fooling the goalie?)

5) Blackwood shuts out the A-Holes in blue (well, white and red and blue...you know who the fvck I mean, they are a bunch of fools!)

This is fun, I'll add 5 items worth $10 each:

1. Pavel Zacha has more points than the Rangers have goals.

2. The Devils score 3 or more goals in any period.

3. The Devils win in a shootout.

4. Nico Hischier has 4 points.

5. Henrik Lundqvist has a sub-.800 save percentage (if he plays, which I assume he will?).

If he gets the assist and completes it, I’ll honor my bet, but not without suing that I’m not sure turtling and getting punched in the face repeatedly should count as a fight.
