Again, I’m not sure it’s her job to break news, is it?

Yeah that's kind of the way i see her too. I'm sure people have different perception of what her job should be and that's fine but my perception is that she's just a content creator, host, there to give the fans what the team want the fans to know.

IMO to be breaking news, etc you have to be separated from the team to some extent cause you will break news and information that the team doesn't necessarily want out yet. 

So we can blame the lack of options for that but not sure blaming her for not doing it is very fair

And that's all i'll say about this cause again people won't have the same opinion and won't draw the line at the same spot between "what fans are entitled to in term of info" and "what the team has to give them in term of info".  That's a lost battle to even try to discuss this in here too obviously. Obviously i WANT to know everything there is to know about team news at the second its available, but it doesn't mean i should expect that. Just my 2 cents

In other news Hughes skated this morning and is day to day.

And my cat is still not a dog.  She is there just for fluff social media. You need someone not hired by the team for the dirt.

I think that’s it. She’s not allowed to “break” anything, if the team wants her to tell you something, she does. If they don’t, she doesn’t. She’s not out chatting up sources, her source is the Devils. 

Say hi to your cat for me, I hope Fido is well lol.

Fair and I pin that more on Masisak than Amanda.  I know that Amanda is really a PR person than an actual reporter.  However, is it really that difficult to post the lineups for that evening's game?  How was TG able to do it for the Devils but Amanda wasn't?  Doesn't seem like it was some sort of state secret.

It shouldn’t be that hard.

Case-in-point.  She's even searching twitter for posts about her that she's not tagged in / part of.

Look at the replies, too.  Gross behavior.

Her posting this is basically akin to saying ‘shower me with praise, followers! Tell me how untrue this criticism is and how great I really am!’.   And she gets just that with the bizarre groveling replies.

And it’s yet another tweet about her instead of anything else Devils-related.

It’s tacky to call one’s own shoe collection legendary; that should be left to other people.

I know it's crazy talk but i'd love for Nashville to sh!t the bed with Forsberg and that we're going for him, either at the trade deadline or free agency. Forsberg - Hughes - Sharangovich would be a thing of beauty

Well it’s a John Hynes coached team so statically speaking, they’re bound to suck

Agreed, and price will probably be too high even if he has another down year.

He can`t play without injuries, he is another skilled top-6 winger wich we have pretty enough with some reserve, he is old and he will ask more money and more years than we need in him.

She (Amanda) post lines/D pairings as they happen (on Twitter) during practice everyday. ALWAYS. I see them, & don't understand why folks here don't.

I think Forsberg's going to get paid wherever he goes. Jack's inline to get paid next year & although I'd love to see him (Forsberg) in NJ, other teams are willing to pony up.

lol no she doesn't.

Just yesterday she posted a handful of guys who were on for the non-game practice group.  As for the game practice group, she posted the goaltenders and that's about it.
