It is a little over a week away, I hope it can hold somewhat of a candle to what Stevens and Dano Night was, the man deserves the accolades and despite the turbulent divorce from the Devils (Again, he went to play with his brother, not the god damn Rangers) without this man you can argue that 95, 00 and 03 do not happen.

That was a ceremony meant for a hero, not that over-long, over-indulgent crap the Rangers did with Messier.

Well, he hasn't gotten booed when they've promo'd it, so it shouldn't be a disaster. Half of the drunken fanbase at the Rock probably never actually saw him play for the Devils, which is funny and shows there's a bit of disconnect here.

I have this horrible feeling that we wont sell this one out, the prices on SH indicate a great crowd but not something that a retirement night deserves. I hope I am mistaken.

Cant wait to get absolutely shitty Friday.

guyincognito
12-13-2011, 16:35
I think it will "sell out", but the problem is that 6:45 on a Friday is insanity, no way the building is full then. I guess the problem is that there's no damn weekend night games the rest of the season. lol.

He`s never been a Duck, not in my mind. He will always be a Devil. This could be a special night, let`s get a win too!

Clarkson once again misses a brilliant chance on the PP, then falls in the D zone starting that whole sequence.

This team has shown they can come back, though.

Urbom simply isn't ready. It's good that he's getting some experience in the bigs, but he just isn't nearly ready to be a full time NHLer. The rest of this year and next year in Albany would be good for him.

Especially since he isn't going to be a big offensive point getter who you can kind of live with the mistakes if you are putting up good numbers. He needs to just get his game corrected. He has plenty of time. No reason to rush.

I just got in from nearly killing myself running. Did someone youtube the Nieds ceremony? And how are the Devils playing?

VaxjoDevil
12-16-2011, 17:57
Nieds ceremony was pretty flat, I thought. He is not an emotional guy and he got a car sponsored by Chrysler.

They are playing pretty well, but if we start getting pinned in our zone more it will probably not be fun to watch. Tallinder gone and Urbom in is not exactly a plus.

Lord Ned Stark
12-16-2011, 17:59
devils were a bit sloppy in the first but zajac looked good i thought

We are winning 4-2. Got a shortie from Zach, a Kovalchuk snipe, and Sykie goal with Cam out there this period. MSG just interviewed Nieds and for some reason his mother.

Salvador has been very good among shaky kids. He even made a glove save on the goal line today.

Salvador will be around 26 minutes tonight, team high, around 10 min. more than Larsson. We see the overplay of him getting corrected.

Parise first, Kovy second and Salvador third. Perfect choices, I think.

Jim, I think you missed their best game of the season. But it was for an awesome reason, of course.

Anton Volchenkov
12-16-2011, 19:52
Yeah, Salvador was excellent tonight. He really stepped up in Tallinder's absence.

Chico's "prediction" that to win, this team has to score three or more is so far pretty accurate.

Yeah, it's nuts, I don't get why they can't keep any shape of defensive positioning. Combine that with the constant attempts to shoot themselves in the head, and they're going to have to score alot of goals to win games outright. They're starting to remind me of the early Boudreau Caps, which is good in one aspect but not very good in the other.

I mean, Sal had a good game in that he directly kept two pucks out of the net, but at the same time you add the big saves and the numerous times that Dallas just outright missed, it's kinda frightening.

VaxjoDevil
12-16-2011, 21:27
My favorite was the second goal (I think), when four players had a ritual dance around one post, while the Dallas player scored being at the other post.

Yeah, they just don't give up goals. You know where someone shoots and scores. They find innovative ways to give them up, I think even on the third they had two guys in front of the net and most of our guys were to the goalie's left of them. Yet on the PK, I mean the defenseman don't play spectacular on the PK, but the forwards do.... but you see some form and strategy to what they're doing.

You almost wonder if they would be better off playing Julienball or some kind of passive trap and just poaching. They have so many forwards capable of this. Or maybe their play down low would still be awful.... who knows

guyincognito
12-16-2011, 21:55
and that PK... they are now EVEN on the season 4 on 5. nuts. -1 overall.

VaxjoDevil
12-16-2011, 22:03
The PK is crazy. But it might come down to earth. Still, right now it's less eventful than when they defend 5 on 5. And good luck in scoring 3 plus on LQ on Tuesday.
