I’m sure. I’m glad you has a positive experience with Erika that didn’t end up with your being Issued a restraining order. 

Well, so far...

That’s because I kept my distance...all I did was wave and say “Thank you”.  Better for all parties, heh heh.

Will be there in the restaurant section tonight.  Will also be at the 10/10, 10/14, and 10/19 games.  Can't believe this season is finally here.  October seemed so far away the day the Devils were awa

Opening night! It’s finally here! To quote Jack Hughes: LETS GO BABY!! LETS GO DEVILS!!!!!

THE OFFSEASON ITS OVER! LGD.

I’m sure you were on your best behavior lol. 

She was really sweet with my daughter.  Super friendly.  My daughter has met Daneyko, Palms, and now Erika and she gets such an innocent and primal thrill out of those moments.  I just love witnessing them.

Man this is such a better group of people on this site compared to the HF Devils board. So many hot takes after one freaking game. Putting Hughes down. The main boards on HF can be fun but the Devils board sucks.

Yeah I read those. People saying Hughes sucked and that he isn't ready etc. I mean, it was his first NHL game for fvcks sake. Give him a break. He looked pretty good I thought, dangerous in OT. He'll adjust no doubt. People need to chill with those horrible takes.

Anything is better than when I spent 2 hours in line at a Brian Boyle autograph signing only for my daughter, who literally never stops talking, to be at a loss for words for the first time in her life lol.

He didn’t play enough to make that determination. He had some good moments, including the OT like you mentioned. The main problem both here and apparently on HF is that people are too quick to think the sky is falling. 

And it could be, but we don’t know that 1 game in.

She was at a loss for words the whole time, or right when she met Boyle?

With Dano it was very quick...he was there, she was there, a quick pic and that was that.  Erika chatted with her.  It was cute.  I will post a pic up here later.

Yeah exactly, he seemed fine to me for his first game and he'll just keep getting better. Take the point and move on. This team will get better and will get adjusted together I have no doubt.

Nope, just for the 60 seconds we were in front of him. She didn’t even say hello lol. 

I did thank him for the autograph and said I was glad he was feeling good, and he thanked me for saying so. Seemed like a good dude.

Hughes seemed like a possibly electric, possibly erratic, wildly skilled and wildly undersized first overall pick tonight. 

Did absolutely nothing to make time think he doesn’t belong

Hughes struggled a bit, but Hynes put him right back in. That's what you do when you wanna get better. One shift at a time. Goose looked great. Zacha had some really nice shifts early on and was a rock on the PK as usual. 

Blake Coleman also played out of his mind. He rarely has a bad game. Just love his effort every night.

He certainly didn’t look out of place. For the few minutes he played anyway.

He’ll never be as good as Miles Wood so far as Uncle Fester is concerned.

My take from tonight was that there's not a lot to go crazy about. It's the first game, team was a bit rusty but showed promise. Defense in our own zone was a bit weak at times though and the big issue is that the Hughes-Gusev abomination needs to end now. They got us into trouble numerous times tonight and the Devils probably win without them. They were a defensive liability almost every time they were on the ice. Hynes seemed to recognize this and his answer was to keep Hughes-Gusev together but replace Bratt with Simmonds and then Hayden. This was a bizarre solution to me. The result was a two player line with a third, slower player who was playing a different game from the other two. The only time, aside from OT, that Hughes looked good tonight was the brief time he was on the ice with Hall. I suspect this will eventually become the solution, even at the expense of Nico.

HF sucks period, I only go over there mainly for the prudential center / season ticket holder thread just because there's more chatter about that kind of stuff there than here and I like some of the other non hockey talk. 

Otherwise it's a ridiculously over moderated garbage board filled with so many idiots.

They win against the Sabres, it’s all forgotten.  Was tough to see in person though.  Just such a damned BUMMER...

I’ve been to a lot of opening night games over the years- rarely have I missed one.... this is by far the most annoyed and pissed off I’ve ever been walking out of an opening night, and it’s not even close.

That board is full of dipsh!ts. It’s horrible. It’s why I never posted there and never will.

And so far as the people who run things are concerned, it’s the fault of everyone except those that have never had any success at the NHL level, see Hynes, John.

I try not to lose it over one game, but Hynes has been on my sh!t list for a while.... tonight did him no favors. I’m not saying fire him YET, but the leash better be exceedingly short. It’s win or fvck off now.

I wish I got to have a track record of failure like him and still be employed.

While we’re sh!tting on Hynes, can I ask why the fvck Alain Nasrredine is still employed here? That guy sucked as a player, and he sucks as a coach too. The fact he hasn’t been replaced is another mark against the Bald One.
