Totally forgot I had a Tumblr, so here’s a picture of Adam Larsson taking a crap
Travis Zajac has re-signed with the Devils for 8 more years at a 5.75 million dollar cap hit. This contract is a complete steal. Zajac would get way more than that as a free agent.
Lots of Ranger fans will tell you about how “awful” this contract is. As much as Ranger fans know about giving out bad contracts, and they know A TON about it, let’s face it - they’re Ranger fans and are therefore morons. Just mention any of the following names to them: Redden, Gomez, Drury, Brashear, Boogaard, McCabe, Holik, Roszival, or Kasparitis.
Devils now have three young centers signed (Zajac, Henrique, Josefson) and a solid defensive group with many prospects. Ask any hockey expert what two positions win Cups and they’ll say centers and defense.
Expect a championship soon.
It is an absolute insult to the franchise that Parise was one of the few captains of this team.
No real captain would abandon their team after coming up 2 games short of winning the Cup.
Thank you for staying kind sir. DON’T EVER SCARE US LIKE THAT AGAIN!

It hurts like hell today to know that there are no more games left for the team to complete their quest. It’s much less painful to go out in the first round and never get your heart so wrapped up into it, but that’s not what it’s about. This has been an amazing journey and there shouldn’t be a single regret about it.
This team means a lot to me as I’m sure it does for all of you too. And some people can’t get that. To some “it’s just a game”. True, it is only a game at the end of the day, but we all know it means much more than that.
It means grabbing a perfect stranger and hugging like maniacs after Travis Zajac scores in overtime and blows the roof off our barn to give us life for a game 7.
It means walking through the arena high fiving everyone in sight and filling the concourses with “Lets Go Devils” chants and a hope for something great.
It means coming together as a fan base and taking a stand against our longer established rivals. We stood tall for our team, our home and most importantly, for ourselves.
It means still believing in our team, despite the longest of odds, that they just may have what it takes to rewrite history.
It means seeing hundreds of fans standing in the pouring rain just to say Thank You to a group of guys who worked hard for each other in hopes of achieving a goal that they’ve worked their entire lives for.
I’ll be going on 20 years as a fan of this team next season and I can honestly say that I finally feel that I have earned my stripes as a fan. I’ve pulled just as hard during the prior seasons as I did this year, but I was ridiculously spoiled when I first came aboard. Even with some lean years thrown in along the way, it was easy being a Devils fan. All the Devils did was win. Well these last 18 months sure taught me just how damn hard it is to stick with your team at the worst of times as well.
Congrats to everyone here for such an awesome season. We all always don’t agree and we each have our own ways of supporting the cause, but we’re all in this together. Let’s keep our heads up because we’ll be back. It’s just what the Devils are all about.
