A. We don't have to watch Cam Janssen in a Devils uniform.
B. We don't have to see Pete DeBoer's atrocious ties.
C. We don't have to hear status quo from Lou when asked about the status of something.

Someone else can probably add more.

There's nothing wrong with DeBoer's ties.

And Lou saying status quo is essentially a reflex for him at this point. He says that even if you ask him what he had for lunch.

Too bad fans can't vote Bettman out the way Seattle fans in MLS get the option to vote their GM in or out

Lou what did you eat for lunch today? ''Status Quo''

Sounds good. I'd like to try it! Where is that located by the way? ''Status Quo!''

I'd say they're about average, since most people are clueless as to what looks good and what doesn't. He could do better.

Oates wore some bad ties, and bad suits too sometimes.

Nothing beats those ugly brownish/beige ones that Robinson, and Maclean would sometimes wear. I don't remember Larry wearing any that color recently. He did a lot when he was a head coach though particularly 00-02.

You seriously remember everything. I can't say I've EVER paid attention to anyone's suit colors.

I really don't paid attention, but those ugly beige colored ones really caught my eye. I guess these guys wanna mix it up a little bit though. If they wear the gray or black suits all the time everyone will think they only own two suits.

I really don't know **** about ties. I have an eye for an ugly suit, but not so much a tie. I do remember Oates wearing some really bad ties, and they must have been really bad for me to notice.

Didn't Oates wear a lot of pink ties too? Not that there's anything wrong with guys rockin a little pink!

I don't own a tie. In the case I needed one I'm sure I could borrow one from somebody.

How can someone not own a tie? I use ties 2 or 3 times a year max and still have 5 or 6 ties

Ugh I have to wear a tie every damn day. It's not that bad, but yeah I find it odd that someone wouldn't have at least a coupe of ties.

I don't really need to wear any. Even if I attend something that requires dressing formal, I still feel I can dress appropriately without a tie.

DeBoer's ties are great and it's not even debatable

edit: after a quick google image search, some of them are **** but the ones he does get right are pretty awesome

I was watching some old football stuff, and the coaches were all wearing suits. I like that about the Devils - they all do it. And hockey coaches in general...

i feel the same way about post-game attire. shirt and tie.

btw- somewhere, sean avery is pouting into his bear's shoulder that he isnt being mentioned in a 'hockey fashion' conversation

Let's open a restaurant called Status Quo in Newark and invite Lou to be our first customer.

Well, they did invent the knot named after them, I figure they know their way around ties.

Red Bulls don't put you in a tie?



Anyways, this was funny regarding the KHL game:

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-pu...1594--nhl.html


1:14 p.m.: More KHL knowledge, as we learn there isn't a hell of a lot of shot blocking, even on the power play. Which means Ovechkin would play HC Lev 10,000 times before he ever plays the Rangers again. Maybe he is staying.


1:58 p.m.: Ovechkin gets his best chance of the game with a driving shot to the net while falling that Malkin would have obviously buried. Levy and Melrose think he has better jump in the second period, which probably means someone from IMG called him between periods to subtly remind him the game was on ESPN2.


2:13 p.m.: Ovechkin's inept play on the man advantage made me look to the blue line to see if Dennis Wideman had turned the puck over. Pavlovian response. Won't happen again next season. Sorry Calgary.

I wonder how much the players have to kick up to Fehr for union dues? While I'm still siding with the players for the most part, I think Fehr is a slimy ****.

I've been in a union before so I know how these guys operate. Fehr is looking out for himself here. We've seen how he operates. At this point I trust him less than Bettman, and Daly.
