Why is a team that didn't make the playoffs and is only getting older getting 15 games? I don't understand that decision at all.

Ya min/Chi/Nyr are pretty lackluster teams to watch these days, yet combine for 44 games......Guess NJD still has the stigma from their trapping days.

it has nothing to do with "stigma" and ratings. They just go for biggest market US teams and the ones that are the most popular recently.

I agree with Todd about pushing more games for NJD because of Hall. I don't need 15 games to listen about how good Jonathan Toews USED to be.

So we had a major increase in aired games after our last cup? and the finals vs the kings?

You're being dense about it. We went to the cup finals, probably had a slight increase in national games then the team suck and they dropped them. It's not that difficult.

I'm not saying that NBC's system isn't bullpoop, but is it that worth getting riled up about greedy TV execs trying to milk ratings for advertisers.

Top 3 are CSN markets. This isn't rocket science.

Ya, its all about $$ and i sure over the years they realized the Devils dont bring that much in. But who cares, it makes our little team that much more special when we win.

Anyway, you really wanna hear that cock Pierre McGuire never giving us any credit for anything? Always sucking off the Pens and Rangers.

"Pierre, what did you think of that Devils goal?"
Pierre: "Crosby is still the best player in the game."

"Yes but what about that goal from Nico?"
Pierre: The Great 8 is up there too with their Cup win!"

Hawks have way too many games and Vegas has too few. Hawks should have 6 less, IMO, and give Vegas 3 more. Vegas had a big following in the Cup run because of their story. Why not keep that going just a little bit? ..try to EXPAND and market more teams in the league instead of a select few..

Ranking a prospect pool overall is a little silly. However, you can say you have a great, good, mediocre, or bad pool. I think a 20th ranking equates to mediocre. And thats a bbn out right. As much as it is better than the LL days it is still disappointing. If it were not for some really good trades this team would be Ottawa ugly.

I’d be sad if I had to watch my team play on NBC anyway. Terrible analysts & colour commentary. I only managed to play a couple of games on NHL 18 before I muted the commentators for good

Rather watch my teams local broadcast any day!
