Whew! Stately IPB Manor is turning back to normal in the wake of the holiday, and our last Christmas miracle of this year was mercifully turning off the Devils/Hurricanes game before the whole “Cam Ward getting credited with a goal” debacle. (Was that the Greatest Nickledebacle Ever? Perhaps.) So now that we’re ready to buckle down and focus, we’re sure the Devils are too. Right? Right?

Boxworthy’s got his party hat on for the holiday season, and, like him, our social calendar is packed with yuletide cheer. We’ll be missing tonight’s Devils/Caps game, so here’s hoping the pattern for this season continues, where the Devils play totally awesomely when we’re not watching.
And for those of you who celebrate it, Merry Christmas! For those of you who don’t, Merry Two-Day NHL Blackout!
You know what can’t ruin our good spirits tonight? The horrors of watching a Devils/Rangers game, that’s what! Because we’re on glorious, glorious vacation now! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
That said, it’s not like we’re challenging tonight’s game to suck. We mean, it would be great if it didn’t. You know, just kick things off with a bang… Please?
Congratulations, Nieder! We, um, loved lots of the things you did while you were with the Devs. Not as much as Scotty or Dano or Marty or Patty, but hey, 2000 and 2003 were freakin’ awesome, so, come on down!
There is much tepid beigeness and mousy forgettablility throughout the cities of EggNation, as the streets have run yellow with yolk. So long, Egg. We’ll miss barely being able to remember you’re on the Devils roster. (Oh, and you too, Fraser.)
As for this Kurtis Foster person, we sort of don’t trust the name Kurtis. Curtis? Sure. Kurtis? Suspect. When we think of Kurtis Foster we think of two things: Adrian Foster and Kurt Rambis. Neither of those guys are good at hockey. The new Egg has a lot of ground to make up to win us over.
Immediately following the conclusion of tonight’s Devils/Sens game we had a brilliant idea for a rule change. In the wake of the big realignment decision, we figure the BOG would be open to even more sweeping changes, so we’ll put this out there for them to consider. Now, we fully put forth that this rule change would help the Devils quite a bit in the immediate future, but looking long-term, this will likely be a benefit to all the teams. So here’s the deal:
In our new, improved NHL the first period would be 20 minutes, the second period would be 20 minutes, and the third period would be 19 minutes and 45 seconds.
We know. It’s brilliant. Think about it, BOG. We don’t even care if you flat-out steal it and try to claim it as your own idea. Just make it happen.
