RunninWithTheDevil Posted August 12, 2020 Share Posted August 12, 2020 Hey all, hope we're all hanging in there through this plague. I think the playoffs have definitely helped my sanity. Fortunately, through all this pandemic, I'm lucky enough to be celebrating my 30th birthday this Sunday. Turning 30 is a pretty big mental milestone for most I'm sure, and it's got me thinking about the years I've lived through leading up to today. I got to thinking about just how lucky I was to be conceived in 89, born in 90, and able to have a childhood rooting for a team that became an absolute dynasty before my eyes. I was fvcking SPOILED by this team (which is probably what have made the last 15-or-so years tough to watch), and I know a lot of the younger guys on here feel the same. All that being said, as I thought about the teams past 30 years, I thought I'd offer a few quandry's for you folks. I also think it would be fun to speculate on what the ripple/butterfly effect would've been had the result been different. It's going to be super odd and open for interpretation but let's try this anyway: Question 1: If you could change the outcome of only ONE SINGLE GAME in Devil's history, which would it be and why? Question 2: You're offered a time machine to go back and stop ONE SINGLE bad trade/signing from happening, but the cost is you have to completely erase the career of star who performed well in their tenure here (Niedermeyer, Parise, Hall, Brodeur i.e.). What trade/pick do you stop? And which Devils star do you erase? (The term 'star' is obviously up for interpretation here) Question 3: Think of your personal list of most hated players of all time. Now you get to go back in time and pick one to play on the Devils during their era. Who do you pick and why? Question 4: if there was one game/event/moment you could go back and witness in person again, what would it be? Question 5: We have retired 5 sweaters in our teams history. Surprise, time machine scenario again but this time Dr. Who is a dick: If you were forced to erase the careers of 3 of these players, who are you picking and why? Some tough and oddly framed questions 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
