They are trying to make money and they probably did their own research on what works and what doesn't and they will probably change somethings and keep somethings it's not like everything in the future will be what it is now. I'm sure they will make marked improvements as the years go on--you can't expect someone to come in and in a couple of months everything will be perfect.

This callup is all about another forward not getting his arse kicked, and about Gelinas not fighting Hartnall.

They just don't want to get someone else nicked up because of the orange goonery.

That's all.

It's kind of hilarious (and telling) Lou cited Cam being 'good in the locker room'...an AHL goon is going to fix the locker room?

well for one, all the changes that the goal song crap brought on. I dont care what they play after a goal but that whole charade was a joke

they seem to have done away with a lot of the discounts that were so popular last year that helped us fill the arena.

I know its early but they havent done much to convince me of anything

Doubtful. How many hockey teams are okay after they lose by far their two best players in back to back years.

I rather have the owner that pays the players on time than the owner that gives discounts to fans. If you want to go to the game on the cheap buy season tickets or wait until we play a western team mid week.

lol there's plenty of cheap tickets available, the Devils not having at least limited discounts only hurts themselves.

The current ownership seems content with 3K+ unsold tickets than offering them at any sort of discount. Last home game (Saturday night, against a rival) was lightly attended. Tickets were less than $25 on SH.

Oh well. Just means shorter concession lines for me and a whole row (or section!) to myself.

^^ awesome video. my one takeaway is why didn't hollweg learn his lesson the first time he got pummeled. and jansenn is the least of our concerns right now, and this team does need a different element. this system is not working and maybe instilling some fear in our opponents will spark something

An AHL goon with only 3 fights in 11 games with a whopping 2 shots on goal.

Great, since Cam will play 3 to 4 minutes a game, plenty of time for Gionta to get double shifted to make up the difference, right?

That's poor logic. Not everybody can afford or wants to deal with the hassle of season tickets and this sorry bunch isn't worth the insane box office costs.

I'm telling you if we wind up sucking this year, I honestly believe that Edmonton meltdown is what turned the season in the wrong direction. If we win in convincing fashion like we should have, I think there's a better than 50 percent chance that we're around 500 now at worst. You absolutely NEED to win a game in which you're leading 3-0 with 12 minutes left.

Harrold skating as the extra is good news.
Maybe not "RIP" after all.

The Devils have been melting down for 3 out of the last 4 seasons.

1 more win for Pxenix and they have more points than Devils, Flyers and Sabres combined. Guess Pxenix is the reincarnation of the 80s Oilers.

They have, but that's the kind of loss that can really set you on the wrong track IMO.

Translation : 100% chance that Janssen plays against Philly.


If he's going to punch someone out, I hope he chooses one of three choices :

1.) Emery

2.) Simmonds

3.) Rinaldo



I also hope Carter steals fartsmell's stick and jabs him in the nuts with it.

GOOD TIMES.

I hope he does run Emery. That's really the only use I have for Janssen.
