thanks!

short answer: i'm a massive dumbass.

long answer: i just really started following this year. i wanted a cold weather team, i've always liked the name/sweaters (especially the xmas trees), lod (in an all-time troll) suggested them, and reliable tradesman mentioned having matthews come into the league when he was getting into hockey helped and figured hughes could be that for me. still i wanted to watch some teams. first few games were cool, but the crowds didn't seem super into it. couple minutes into devils' opener, subban laid a guy out, crowd went nuts and i became a subban and devils fan.

ah awesome. welcome to fandom! i am nominally a rangers fan but don't really get that into rivalries unless they've been playing someone for like three games in a row. but i hope they become a great team to root for!

i haven't even checked rivalries, but i assume flyers and rangers are up there. so far my least favorite team is also the devils.

it's a real fun sport and the sounds of skating and the puck slapping around are really pleasing.

btw we have an ECHL team too, the allen americans. if you ever wanna watch a cheaper quality hockey game with lots of goals/hits/fights check them out. to my amateur eyes, an ECHL game still looks unbelievably fast n intense live

BUT since the team is the allen AMERICANS, there is a toooon of bootlicky performance thingies that happen. idk how into patriotism you are, but if you hate patriotism like some us including myself it's a weird vibe!!!

i'm pretty sure my buddy i'm going with is a stars fan, so maybe it'll rub off on me. i kinda like a buncha teams in the west (go yotes!), but it's hard to follow because i also have the sleep schedule of a 70 year old farmer and they start at like 9pm.

i kinda assume this is the vibe at all sporting events and it just gets worse as you go down levels.

Hey the Wild actually won a game (and a shutout to boot) and then I see that Dubnyk didn’t even play. My goaltending has been a disaster. Jones finally had a good game at least

My family introduced hockey to my brother-in-law’s parents visiting from Iran (first period of Jets vs Pens last night lol). They said it looked like 2 sports in 1 (skating and then the actual game)

My sister and husband are taking them to a Moose game next week (vs Iowa Wild)

His mom only knew what hockey was prior because she remembers American kids playing street hockey outside at a school before the revolution.

I was trying to watch the game from the perspective of someone who’d never seen it before and I was getting so annoyed at all of the stoppages in play (there were more than usual during that period tbf)

man i gave up on isles-blues after they scored the second goal pretty early in third.

came back from 2-0 down with five minutes left, game tying goal with 30 seconds left and then devon toews winner a minute into overtime

Islanders have looked scary bad but they have somehow won 2 in a row

he's looked more engaged than the rest of the team, but i think people more familiar with hockey may think he's not played real well so far(nobody has). i dunno, he's my favorite player by far.


quoted from another thread. neck

i have a good idear for you, hear me out

when you talk about the new jersey devils, and hockey in general, it would cool if you shared ur hockey opinions as if you've been watching the game forever. whatever opinion pops in your head just type it.

u are now my go to source for new jersey devils analysis

i know it's only six games, but the devils look genuinely bad. it appears far to frequently that subban is the only one who cares. simmonds went after mccabe(i believe) when he felt mccabe went high on hall, but other than that it's seemed like five guys just out there skating 90% of the time. not a team at all. the passes seem less like an attempt to get the puck to a teammate and more "ok i'm tired of skating with the puck, so i'll just smack it across the ice". but not subban. he's there jostling in the corners, moving the puck and actually giving a shit. bless him.

hall seems much more focused/aggressive late in games, which is a waste, because by then we're either down by three goals or have blown another 4-1 lead and everyone else (except subban) has checked out.

hughes may be great one day, but right now he's just a lil dude with lots of speed getting manhandled. i feel like he's spent more time laying on the ice than he has actually possessing the puck. i heard on the radio today that he's had six attempts, which seems both eidiculously low to me, but also feels high.

gusev, despite what i said about it seeming like the team doesn't care, seems to be on the ice when good things happen more often than anyone else.

i hate rooney. he stood six inches from wood as he got roughed up by a couple of flyers and did nothing. just stood there, staring at his teammate being abused. fuck him.

i wanna say schneider and blackwood stink, but so much of these games seens to be spent in that zone that i'm not sure anyone could deal with it.

rest of the team hasn't really made an impression.
