I am a writer, film director and teacher. My first Devils' game was January 7, 1988 and ever since then I've been hooked.

Evolution of a Kovalchuk Blunder

Kovalchuk has had countless defensive mishaps that have lead to goals or high quality chances against. We know this and rant about it a lot. If your memory is short, and you need examples, one...

Will the Nets back in the Rock help the Devils?

I'm wondering with the end to the NBA lockout, does the Nets playing some games in the Rock help the arena, the NHA and more importantly, does it help the Devils or Vanderbeek at all?

Who deserves the most credit?

Julien says Devils were playing for OT

10

Maybe Julien finally said out loud what many of us might have been thinking. So many one goal games and so many have gone into OT. What do you think: Is DeBoer or the team lacking that killer third period instinct and instead, playing it safe?

An ILWT Weekday Game Meetup

The best thing about this blog, IMHO, is the many fan posts, shots and stories about attendance related issues.  Chere and Gulitti tend to not write about this as much as we do and this frustration...

It's Mark Everson. And Brodeur seems to be wondering out loud. Or is it just spin?

Remembering the 2001 Stanley Cup Playoffs: 10 years later

I probably should've timed this for June, but just thought about it now.  It's been 10 years now that our New Jersey Devils came awfully close to repeating as Stanley Cup Champions.   To this day,...

Puck Daddy says Kovalchuk would be bad choice for Captain

19

I agree with him, but are the only options Kovy or Parise? I think Anthon Volchenkov would be a good choice. Clearly the team is committed to him long term. . .

The death of Trenton, Jersey Pride & the Devils' marketing

Now you younglings can experience a great old series - 1991

When I saw these on youtube (taken from NHL Network) I'll admit I got pumped.  Not including the 1988 playoff run, the 1991 Patrick Division Semi Final against the Penguins was a classic Devil...

Did the Devils just get closer to Pekka Rinne?

When I saw that the Philadelphia Flyers acquired the rights to Ilga Bryzgalov, I immediately thought of this excellent fan post by Devilssection21fan. His conclusion is that the Devils and Flyers...

Music used in Stanley Cup videos

I know there's a diverse amount of music the major sports leagues use in their music videos.  For instance, NFL Films gets a lot out of Sam Spence.  And some just take generic pop tracks, for...

How much did Chara's size factor into the Pacioretty hit?

I'm a big guy.  Maybe that's why I empathize with Zdeno Chara a bit.  So now I'm wondering what users here think. How much did Chara's size have to do with Paciretty getting injured? I personally...

When the trade deadline passes

It's going to be decision time for Parise. If he is healthy, should he try to return to the Devils in late March?

2011 comparable to 1988?

A nice article to take you back. The Devils were way out of a playoff spot when they went on a tear (undefeated in their last 8) to end the season and make the playoffs. I'm feeling a lot like I did back then now. Note the BlackHawks goalie.

Does Arnott get traded and if so, to whom?

The funny thing that's happened during the Devils' winning streak is that the Arnott rumors have died down somewhat.   John, Tom, David did mention it briefly toward the end of their Talking Red...

A Tribe Called Quest and the Devils

I've linked this video here before, but what caught me most was what Phife Dawg raps and does from 1:59 - 2:01. Pretty shocked the Devils haven't found someway to work this into a video montage . . . maybe it's just my love of old school rap.

The importance of a good 4th line

Was hockey better on TV in the old days? (many video examples)

Has the NHL gotten worse on TV? According to John Buccigross in 2006: It was actually better in the 1970s because the camera angles and lighting were better because the sets were smaller. Hockey...

It's not time to panic . . . yet.

This has been the worst start in my memory as a Devils' fan.  But I feel that flipping out would be premature.   1) MacLean will get more of a grip on this team in November.  I was one of the few...
