Ha! Vegas dropped a crucial point with a second to go against lowly SJ at home. 

People are all over Jack Eichel. No points in 4 straight games in the most crucial time of the season for them, including 0-1 in the shootout.

And Vegas and Buffalo have nearly identical records since the trade.

Buffalo has also been playing completely meaningless hockey, only unlike us, they actually play loose and win. Problem is they do this every season and clowns up there think this is shades of next year. 

then they’ll go on a heater sometime early next season, be declared “back” by some out there in the world, and be out of the playoffs by the all star game. 

Granted as a Devils fan, I have no business mocking any other fan base with how pathetic we have been for almost a decade. Our literal miracle run by Hall prevented us from having a decade long playoff drought, but 2027 isn’t too far away to make that happen…

Funny thing is Buffalo is the only team in the league with less playoff appearances than us in the last decade. I think they are the only team we can openly mock so we should enjoy it.

I openly mock all the other teams, because I’ve STILL seen my team win more than most people will ever see their teams win in their lives. If I die today, I’ve seen three Cups, and I saw them win the 2003 Cup in person. So yeah, I’ll continue to mock the losers in Buffalo, as well as the other 31 teams that can also kiss my ass.

Yup. I’ll mock all teams until I die because I’m a Devils fan. I look forward to the day I can take the Devils off of that list lol.

Seems a little unfair...guy had 7 goals in 9 GP prior to this fairly brief downturn.  I would expect some ups and downs from a guy who missed so much time (especially with his injury).

That being said, he'll definitely need to be more productive overall next season...12 G and 9 A in 31 GP from Eichel simply isn't enough.

I think he’s one of those dudes who is just a loser. He’s good, but he’s a losing player.

Seems to be something missing with him...not sure what.  I didn't pay enough attention to him during his Buffalo years...but yeah, some guys just don't seem to be needle-movers.  With the most notable exception of 2017-18, if you really think about, that pretty much sums up Taylor Hall (with Boston, he's in the right spot now at least...a well-paid but not wildly overpaid secondary/complementary guy).

Disappointed the CR1976 /82 button was not pressed.

Well I mean he was with Buffalo for most of his career, so...

I’m not disagreeing. We got spoiled for a long time. The “only” team thing was more tongue in cheek since it’s been such a crap run for us.

Having gotten to experience that almost 27 years ago…I really hope to do the same with my daughter one day.  But at this point I’ll settle for just taking her to a damned playoff series clincher (or just a playoff win period).

I would settle for a meaningless 5-1 victory during a winning season lol.

I never got to see the cup in person. I’ll have to hold on to the Henrique game for the time being and hope this team finds its way eventually

Man that must have been nuts!  It was nerve-wracking enough watching that from home.  And I can’t believe that was almost TEN YEARS AGO!  Wtf?!

I’ve always said, if I could bottle the feeling in that building when that goal got scored, I’d be a billionaire.

Other than the Cup clincher in 2003, that was the most incredible game I’ve ever been to. Absolutely insane. The Rag fans that were there scattered like rats. I recall this one guy- in between the 3rd period and OT, dude was talking mad sh!t on the bathroom line about get ready for game 7, repeat of ‘94, blah blah blah. After the Henrique goal, I saw this fvcker book down the steps past me like he was being chased with a gun; I yelled at him as he ran past me GET THE fvck OUT OF MY BUILDING 🤣

Holy sh!t, it was incredible. I will never forget how everyone in our section was jumping up and down, high fiving, hugging each other- people were hugging other people in the section rows behind them, because everyone was just going nuts and trying to celebrate with everyone else. It was utter bedlam. The concourse and the Goal Bar after the game- holy sh!t, what a party.

We were watching the game with another couple at our house…me and my bud’s wife were the real hardcore fans, so we just went completely nuts. Had a blast that night.

I ended up two rows down from jumping so high. The big guy who always sat in front of me all season stopped me from falling further cause I was all over the place.

Dude, I was bouncing around like a drunk after the goal (and I wasn’t drunk, I was too fvcking nervous to do anything but bite my nails the entire game lol)- it was surreal. I had to keep pinching myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.

I was almost waiting for some reason for it to be disallowed.  Just because.
