So I’m sitting on the couch with my wife watching the game, and I thought to myself, “Self, I miss my Devils websites.” I know, I know, it’s my own fault. You know the last post I made was over three and half years ago. And the original site that started the obsession with the team, njdevils.info, has been closed for some time – and to be honest would most likely be obsolete today.
Nevertheless, I’m sitting on the couch, watching game one of the 2016-17 season, and have decided I want to begin this again. I watch a lot of hockey, and while the team and organization look drastically different from what it did three and a half years ago. Are we rebuilding? Are we just a mediocre team now? Will they ever return to greatness like they once had or will they continue to struggle and miss the playoffs? Quite honestly, no one knows the answer. But with the management that has come in as long time GM Lou Lamoriello departed more than a year ago, I remain hopeful that they have the knowhow and understanding the construct a team that will soon be competitive once again.
Anyway, this is post 201. But for all intents and purposes, it’s post 1. Again. I look forward to posting again, and making this at least a weekly thing, not a yearly thing. As always, lets go Devils!
