All it would take would be a team coming to New Jersey? That's crazy. That's like saying if the Devils left you'd become a Rangers fan. 

And what if, as was rumored years ago, it was the fvcking Yankees that moved to New Jersey? You'd just become a Yankees fan???

C'mon...after saying how much I'm NOT into New York, the last thing I would do if the Devils ever left town would be to join the dumbest fanbase in all of hockey.  If the Devils left, I don't know what I'd do...I'd probably so crushed that I don't know if I could watch hockey for a while...maybe ever.  The Devils are my absolute #1 team, the team I've spent countless dollars on going to see, the one that is helping me make awesome daddy-daughter memories as we speak.  I'd probably re-do my whole cave from the ground up, because I doubt that I could look at all of the Devils goodies I've collected through the years without a profound sense of misery and loss. 

As far as MLB baseball goes, I should clarify...preferably, it would be an expansion team that would play in NJ...a team with no history at all, starting from the ground up.  That would be the best possible circumstances, if I was ever to leave the Mets behind...to support a local team from Day 1, be a part of its history from the very beginning. 

If the Yankees had been the team to move to NJ, I don't think I could've made the switch because not only would I still have thought of them as the New York Yankees, I'm sure that they still would've been CALLED the New York Yankees.  No one would ever think of them as being New Jersey's team, truly.  They wouldn't ever be MY team...or truly feel like they belong to NJ. 

The second-best scenario would be a team that moves here with no deep ties to its prior location(s), that begins to build some in NJ, and in time is mostly remembered for what they accomplish here.  Very much like...well, the New Jersey Devils.  Or as a baseball example, a team like the 1969 Seattle Pilots...one season in Seattle, then they moved to Milwaukee to become the Brewers. 

But yeah, my post was much more black-and-white than was intended, re:  a baseball team ever coming to NJ.

If Hall doesn't sign a deal by Wednesday, I'll be surprised, and a bit worried.

Really?  Part of me was thinking (and hoping) that the whole team all of us are speculating about Shero being able to convince him to stay, and Hall himself actually wanting to stay, that it was all just self-inflicted worry and torture, and that they'd inevitably come up with a deal once July 1 rolled around.  Sort of like how we were all wondering if Shero would do anything on draft day, and then he just casually rolls outta the gate with one of the biggest splashes during the weekend.  

I kinda figured they might not strike a deal today, which would keep the buzz alive, since a lot of deals are signed today even though free agency lasts a while, and then perhaps tomorrow, or Wednesday, the deal is announced and we all breathe a sigh of relief - meanwhile Shero and Hall are like, "We know it all along, there was never any doubt we'd get this done".

That sounds great, but it certainly sounds like neither side is in a rush. I don't feel like they told us that because they are going to sign a deal on July 3 instead of July 1. 

But I hope you are right.

Hall is not an FA this year. Why would Shero rush a deal in the middle of UFA and finalizing other roster moves?

True, I just feel like he's still a priority, and I'm also not expecting major UFA signings, especially after the one we already got today.

Oh, hadn't heard that.  Guess I'll be worried if it doesn't happen in a few weeks then lol.

so that if it turns out that it's a better option to move hall... that not all teams who would want him are all set and we're stuck with not much options to move him. which would give us a lesser return

Artemi Panarin was the only Hall-level player on the market in UFA this year. Duchene was probably the next tier down. The market for Hall won't change - he'll still be in high demand.

some teams still made moves that would prevent them from getting hall.

Say we could have traded hall for Marner plus wtv...maybe then the leafs are not making a few moves they already did. who knows

Maybe. Or maybe the market for an elite winger in his prime stays wide open?

This is ridiculous. Waiting on Hall literally changes nothing for the market on him.

I don't think it's fair at all to call this ridiculous.  Initially when you posed the question to me I kind of conceded and thought you were more or less right in the sense that we can sign Hall shortly down the road, after all of this FA business is out of the way.  However, reading the last few posts, I think you are both right, to a degree.  I think you're right with the notion that if a team REALLY wants a particular player, especially of the caliber like Hall, they'll probably find a way to make it happen.  BUT, SD also has a valid point that it's not exactly easy by any stretch to just wave a wand and then poof, you suddenly have the assets and flexibility to just get it done.  There's lot of things that could stand in the way of acquiring a player like Hall, one of which is prior transactions (like the ones occurring now) which create a full roster, high cap hit, long contracts, NTC's and NMC's, etc etc.  So I think calling his point ridiculous is a bit harsh and unjust.

If anything. Hall can look at Tavares last year who went on to a "better team" and his old team made it further. You just never know. Or simply look at Tampa.

It's never a guarantee that you'll make it or not so if you're not unhappy where you are and that you are trending up. Might be smarter to stay and hope for the best than leave and still miss

Ranger fans have exactly one Cup since the fvcking polio vaccine. Their arrogance isn’t based off anything but ORIGINAL SIX BRAH and BRIGHT LIGHTS BRAH. I just want this fanbase to have some fvcking pride in itself, the team, and the state. That isn’t done by acting like everything sucks. Some cockiness and arrogance would be a welcome change, given our history actually calls for some. As far as Newark goes, no one said it doesn’t need work, but Rome wasn’t built in a day. It’s not as bad as it used to be. You can go to any city in America and wander into a crappy area. Newark has work to do, but it’s on its way. 

So what you're saying is that the polio vaccine wiped out polio AND the hopes and dreams of every living Rangers fan for a few generations?  Jonas Salk rocks!!!

Unfortunately, I think a new disease has come around: Rangeritis.  It seems to manifest in an immense amount of arrogance based on the accomplishment of nothing and the distortion of one's teams achievements vis-à-vis other sports teams.  It even seems to affect professional athletes, luring them much like the moth is lured to the light with forlorn hope..... only to meet its demise, ultimately forgotten in some trash bin.
