I mean, maybe I would have found time.
It was like islander to devils, but not for the Rangers.
I mean, I was watching because I'm the supervisor for, like, people like because editor, like an editor, is supposed to watch every stream because there was an issue on one of my streams at one point for the Yankees.
So we were on it and he was talking about the reason it was actually pretty interesting.
I mean, I don't like listening to the Rangers much, nor do I know much about them, but pretty good.
I love when Henry, like, answers his own question, so yeah.
Yeah, like, uh, he's a legend, man.

Make sure you go check that out for articles from all three of us and from a lot of other people for pretty much every sport in the tri state area.
Actually, the New York area, not Connecticut or whatever state you include in charge State.
But yeah, we got a decent amount things to discuss today, But the first thing I want to say here is I know last week I went on a rant that I couldn't buy one of the new devil jerseys, but I got one.
That's all I have to say.
I got the Christmas tree jerseys.
As Jacob likes to say, I finally got on how much how much was it? I'd rather not say is it is the North of 300 bucks.
29 on and there was no tax and shipping.
So I was like, All right, we're set C J.
You know what? What? I'm happy The Islanders didn't bring back the fishermen jersey because now I can get it from China for cheaper.
It's not gonna go out of stock, ever.
That makes you see this year's You're right here is from China.
And so it's just one right behind me.
This one's from China.
You move it and then that one right behind me in the back is from China as well.
Yeah, they have fishermen jerseys that are like you can customize for $40.
China's the plug, dude, like I got, I have the, I think, one official jersey and including the one that's coming whenever the retro Yeah, yeah, the arrangement.
There's these 280 bucks, but for the Devils, they must take a discount off to 80.
****, man, that's a lot.
I got mine from cool hockey dot com Like they they released their stock of them feel like reach for retail wait.
How much was it? No, it was yeah, for retail.
And I had to pay, like, five bucks tax or something.
So I was like, All right, well, I mean, not the worst are someone just sent a foam finger for 50 tickets.
All right, so let's discuss what we have today.
Victor, you want to start off here? What have we got? All right.
So, um, I'm sure this hurts you guys a lot to hear this, but as far as the I I h f goes Both the Devils and Rangers made statements earlier this week about Jack ewg's and laugh attending the world juniors.
Um, both teams, respectively, won't being won't send their players to represent their countries.
And I know, um, CJ and Jacob, you're probably both disappointed to not see, uh, represent, um, I think Canada and America like Hughes's American, I'm pretty sure.
So, um, that's one of the bigger things in hockey news recently, since the NHL isn't coming back till January 13th, so yeah, but just feeling the I I h f like I would have loved to see Jack use represent us a as the New Jersey Devils player.
Considering you put in playing it last year because we were in the middle of the season, it kind of sucks.
But it also considering the season starting on January 13th and the world When is the world genius really starts around Christmas, If I'm not wrong, 2015 a.
Yeah, because I feel like, say, Hughes gets like Cove it or something.
And then he comes to training camp right before, like on January 4th, right after the tournament, when training camps going on, it would pose a risk to the devil's team and, like, I don't want him get uninjured.
You know, I'm saying cause I mean, he's not the biggest guy.
I mean, he gained some weight in the off season, but I don't want to see him getting injured.
I mean, I I could see you not wanting to see laugh, get injured as well.
What do you think? That definitely high.
You know, I would love to see these guys go out there, go compete against really been time class, You know, I mean that you could play an e do.
That would be a great thing for them.
but don't laugh.
I got injured last last world juniors last year leg and I really don't think it his priority should be to stay in New York.
And and then yeah, I agree.
Because we had Alexander Holtz, our pick from 2020.
He might be going, but he might not be going because of he was in contact with CO vid or something last week where he plays in Russia.
And that is not good.
Um, because you don't want him spreading cove it well in other countries for the I'm not sure where the tournament is this year, though.
I thought him sure.
Holtz was actually playing in Sweden. That's my bed.
I messed that up Here, let me search it.
Tony? Yeah, it's supposed to be Actually, it's not even showing.
Let me let me wait for this to pull up.
Who want Canada won the last one, right? Yeah.
Good news is Kirby Dach is supposed Oh, yeah, same draft class as Capo Kokko and Jack you.
So is he playing e really nice? Pretty sure.
Yeah, it's the World Juniors was being held in Czech Republic from December 26 to January 5th.
I wouldn't really risk getting co vid crossing the pond to go to another country, but that's just my personal opinion.
Victor, Do you know if the Islanders had anyone playing or I don't think so.
But I know there's players like currently playing in like some of the European leagues, like some people are playing in the Czech Republic.
Others are in Sweden.
So there are like leagues going on right now, and they're doing pretty good with Covitz, so I'm pretty short.
Islanders have a couple of prospects doing that, but I don't think any of the Islanders would make the cut for the world. Junior steams.
Yeah, they don't really have any notable prospects right now.
I think thorough Kony would have aged out by this point.
Yeah, how? Well, what is? You have to be 19.
Yeah, so he's definitely h out.
He's in his twenties.
Yeah, because I think the oldest you could be 20 if I'm not wrong.
I think it's like 18 through 20 something like that.
What? I mean, I think holds was playing in Sweden.
Right now we have a few prospects playing.
They actually look pretty good.
So optimistic for the future in New Jersey here.
All right, let's move on.
We got out something else.
Might be returning on January 13th.
I'm pretty sure it's said and done, but we don't know.
I mean, Gary Bettman.
We don't know what the heck he's trying to do here.
How do you guys feel about a 56 game season? I'm pretty sure starting in about a month.
Do you guys think about that? Jacob, You wanted to take this one? Yeah.
Sleep correct Playoffs last year.
Reality because of cold *****.
We don't know how that would have turned out for them and same thing rule the other teams.
But I do think the teams they're gonna have toe really utilize the training camp and really get the wheels turning quickly and hot.
Please be sure to season.
And we saw it in baseball.
We saw it in football.
We're not exactly sure if there's gonna be any road bumps or any kinks Thio to slow this season down so back.
Something does happen where there's a hot spot.
They got to shut it down for a week.
You know who knows what that final game, you know, games they're gonna look like once everything said and done.
I mean, I agree, cause there are gonna be some problems of some sort, like, you know, football.
40 Niners, San Francisco.
They plan to Santa Clara County in California, and they issued a thing where you can't play sports even professionally there.
So the 40 Niners got kicked out their stadium and the plan in Arizona, The Sharks, San Jose Sharks happen to be playing in the same county, and that would probably affect them as well.
So the Sharks would probably have to find somewhere to go. And you know, California.
It's kind of strict with the covert rules, so you might not see, like, for example, you might see the San Jose Sharks playing somewhere else.
You might see the Kings playing somewhere else.
It's it's gonna be very, very interesting.
There might be divisional changes.
There might be all sorts of things.
Victor, what do you have to say about this? Like, what do you think about the situation here? We're in I mean, there's definitely a lot of risk.
I think that men will do a better job than how baseball was going on this past year.
Like at the beginning.
There are a lot of covert cases, like on opening night.
I'm pretty sure player came down with it, and he was, like, immediately at the leave.
So, um, I think that man is going to try, like, do the safest thing.
And they actually have been talking about division realignments.
Um, I'm pretty sure that the Bruins and the sabers would join the Metropolitan Division, and, um, the Penguins and Blue Jackets would go to the Central.
So, um, that's something interesting.
I think it doesn't change too much as faras that New York teams like chances at the playoffs.
I still see the Islanders making it.
Devils not doing great.
And, um, the Rangers being like on the bubble, maybe with the Bruins, or maybe with the fires or Islanders.
So I think we should start looking at that a little bit.
Yeah, that's Ah, that's well put, Victor.
Um, you know, I think we should rankings.
Where do you guys see the Devils? The Rangers? The owners just speak on your team.
I think we should talk about agent of our own teams.
Just, you know, good this CJ where you see the devil's landing at the end of Well, I mean, this honestly makes the division a little tougher And my opinion, because let me thio.
The Bruins are pretty **** good hockey team.
Um, you put them up there with Washington, The Islanders fires.
That's a really, really insane top three in your division right there. Possibly.
And I feel like if you play a lot of, like, inter divisional games because it's like in your region, it would kind of be a little tough to beat some of these opponents.
I mean, yeah, we beat the Bruins last year once out of like, three times, it was tough to face them.
Um, teams like the Islanders tough to play these air, all tough teams that we all have to face.
And I honestly and this eye, I predict the Penguins originally coming in last in the Metro.
But the Penguins aren't in this division, most likely so.
Unfortunately, my team would finish in last for the third straight year.
Um, but I would see I would think the Devils would improve a lot.
Um, young guys like he share Hughes, Brad Blackwood.
They're all gonna come together, and they're all gonna play a lot better.
I could see the Devils being under Lindy Ruff, our new head coach, playing a faster, more aggressive style of play on like with John Heinz, which set us back in the beginning of last year.
I could see us being arm or of a competitive team, but really not coming in close to the playoff contention.
I mean, I could see us at least like hitting 500 but I don't know. You don't know it's 2020.
Anything could happen, but the key And this is Tau win as many games out the gate as you can because 56 games isn't too much.
You see, you saw in baseball the Yankees lost a bunch of games at a time, set them all the way back.
Anything could happen in a short year.
Um, what do you guys think about your respective teams here? Think? Yeah.
So as far as the Islanders go, I still like I thought the Blue jackets were better and the Penguins were worse.
And I still think that's the same when you take the Bruins and savers.
So I don't think this change effects my team so much.
Like, as far as like the Bruins go, there are really, really good team.
They made the Cup finals in 2019.
Um, they've regressed since then.
They lost their top two defenseman, like McEvoy's getting better, but at the same time losing our guy like Cindino.
Ciara, who has been a leader on that team for God knows how long.
Um, that that's gonna hurt them.
And Tory crew was Ah, very good.
Like offensive defenseman for them.
He was that number one power play guy, um, on the blue line for the Bruins.
So they're not gonna be as good, um as they were like last year.
But I still think they could take a like a top three spot with the Canes and Flyers.
So I have the Islanders at the wild card team.
Um, finishing fourth.
Jacob, what do you think about the rangers here? Um, I think I think C j you put it very well, be you gotta win as many games as you can out of the gate, and I feel like for the Rangers things they're starting a company.
Be sure where the lines are gonna look like.
They definitely are gonna have to figure that out with the addition of Alexey LaFraniere, I believe are on the I could definitely see looking at a wild card spot.
Now I'm really I'm really confident on where they stand.
It's just gonna be a matter of putting everything together.
We saw on the beginning of last season.
It took them a while.
I mean, they weren't even supposed to make the playoffs, and somehow they did.
But if they have a like, well for them.
But if we see what they saw, what we saw out of the last season, that a correspond, Yeah.
I mean, I honestly feel that the devils and Rangers are gonna be competitive teams.
I mean, there, there, young teams, but the Rangers have mawr star players than the devil's.
I mean, you guys got Panera AnAnd's advantage that those were two of the better players in the league.
We really don't have that super star.
And as I said in the pest, the devil should look at my Kaufman.
For situations like this, Uh, and a short season, you need to win as many games as you can.
And if you want to be really competitive and make the playoffs, you need at least like you need some star players on your team along with the younger guys, so they could develop and develop more confidence in themselves.
But I could see us both being competitive.
I honestly do not see the Rangers or Devils making the playoffs.
Uh, that is not a biased opinion.
You know, You guys know how much I just like the Rangers here, but, um, they're young teams.
They just need to develop, develop more chemistry.
I mean, the devils haven't played together, and God knows how long.
The last time we played together was like March 10th.
I'm pretty sure that was forever ago.
It's been a while, and they just yeah, they just need to develop chemistry and I think will be fun.
There's, though I could see him making a wild card spot.
They just can't collapse like they did near the end of last year.
But also they have that strong start at the beginning they had, like, a 16 point streak.
Yeah, like 16 consecutive game.
With the point if they could do that again, I think there are playoff lock because then they don't have as much time to go down.
Um, if one of their top defensive get hurt, it's, ah, whole different story because, like looking at the Islanders defense now, um, Green is still an unrestricted free agent.
Ah, boy, Chuck retired and Lou Lamoriello traded Devon case.
So then you have three of the guys from last year on that defense? Well, no, no.
Think for if you include me, Theo on Dobson.
Well, so five, if you include Dobson.
But they kind of inter changed a little bit over the course of the playoffs.
But that defense isn't as good as it was this past year, but the Islanders could also have a lot of them momentum.
Still, they made the Eastern Conference finals.
That's something they should be proud of, considering most people have them going out against the caps.
It really showed that, like the veteran teams can't keep up with the metro anymore.
Like teams like the Canes fires Islanders.
I think they weren't gonna be top three or the Blue Jackets before the realignment so we could see a team like the Bruins falling out.
You never know because I know they are like dealing with some problems, age wise.
I mean, they're getting a little older men, their captain and Ciara's no longer there.
But what the devil's I mean, I honestly see them looking like a totally different well, not entirely different.
But there's gonna be a lot of changes, especially on the defensive side.
I mean, you no longer have have the bums like Matt Tennison and, uh, Merkel Mueller.
You'll have CA dudes like Ryan Murray who traded for Dmitry Kulikov.
I mean, he's like a solid got to put in.
You could replace Connor Carrick with Will Butcher.
Um, I'm fine with that.
You gotta let somebody I mean, we have a ton of defensive prospects coming up.
Uh, if the team sucks in 56 games, I could see him coming up.
If the team's not in playoff contention the last month of the year, just throw him out there, see how you dio, because that's what we did last year.
I mean, after the tailor whole trade We brought some of those guys up after the trip.
We treated a lot at the deadline.
We got younger pieces and some of them came up and some of them look pretty good.
So you just got to see how they develop.
Um, I'm hoping for the best, especially with the Devils, because they're my team.
But anything can happen.
It's, well, it's not gonna be Tony Tony anymore, but some of that might carry over in the next year.
Hey, man, I just I just hope the Devils could at least be somewhat competitive.
Um, after the fire, John Heinz, the team was actually a lot more fun to watch their playing more fast using speed, using skill.
They're winning games.
I mean, they were actually, like a few points behind the Rangers for, like, a wild card spot.
Then we just fell down before the season ended.
J you said Hoffman right now is is a free agent, right? Is there any chance of devils pick? Oh, that's actually a good question.
I think there is a chance.
I mean, the devil still have a lot of cab room.
Ah, and putting a guy like Mike Hoffman as, like your second line center, Let's say around the line with Jack use and Com primary.
I mean, you move huge toe like one of the wingers, and then you put Palmeri at the right move usedto left wing.
Put Palmeri it right, and then you put Hoffman in center.
That would be a very, very good line that can easily produce goals.
Um, especially I feel like that would be especially good if you surround a guy like Jack Hughes with a superstar talent like Mike Hoffman and a solid proven, later like kind upon Mary.
If you surround the the younger players here with bigger and better, like more experienced talent, kind of like mentor them in the right direction and kind of like help them develop confidence while playing alongside them.
I think that would work out great for the Devils.
If you sign them, I'd say 23 years, Um, not not too long, because you don't want him when he's out of his prime.
You don't wanna be over paying for a guy who's like a 36 year old bum playing out there, but I definitely think the devil should at least give him a call.
Consider it because you haven't heard his name in quite a while.
And training camp might be starting and like, 20 days, so we don't know anything could happen here.
Is gonna be quite interesting if you ask me, C j.
I have a question for you.
Yeah, what's up? So I'm sure you've heard, like, around the league, like the past couple of all seasons.
Patrick Line has been shopped around by the Winnipeg Jets that have the devils have the talent to bring in a guy like that on the cap.
Peru Not like unlike a lot of the teams currently, uh, would you like to see, um, my name for the Devils this year.
I would love to see Lana on the Devils, but there is one reason why I don't want to.
And because I believe the Devils were enquiring about line A at one point and Winnipeg asked us for Nico he share and a bunch of first round picks.
I would not do that because Niko Fischer is a big part of our future development.
And we need first round picks to continue develop young talent.
But if the price is right, I definitely bring in line a.
I mean, I would not give up too much.
I'd give up a couple of prospects and some pics, but I would not.
If some team walked up to me and asked, I say I was the G m of the Devils here, So let's say I'm Tom Fitzgerald for a second.
If someone asked me to trade Hughes or he's here, I would say, you know, immediately because those dudes are gonna be superstars within 3 to 5 more years.
I wanted Gamble it I want and risk it.
I mean, Lina is proven he's in his prime.
But I really wanted risk giving up generational talent like guys and Hughes and Nico.
But I'd love to see Lana on the devil.
So But if the price is right for him, I mean, you never know with that price like Line A had, like a down year for his standards.
So, like he's not even the top winger, like not even a top to when you're in Winnipeg anymore.
Yeah, I know it Z interesting.
I mean, I hope that if his like, if the value for the trade value, like decreases a bit and we don't have to give up too much.
I'm fine with it.
But I don't want it to be like another PK suban situation where we think we're trading for, like, a superstar.
And they come out and they're just slow and terrible.
Like to ban Ken bounced back with all the extra rest.
Maybe because he is on the older side, the rest probably helped him.
Yeah, but you never know.
It could also hurt from being rusty, so yeah, because I remember when we traded for him, I was like, Oh my God, we got PK Suban.
I was losing my mind.
I was super excited.
And then he comes out and he's not doing anything.
He's not producing on the power play.
He's not producing offense.
He's just like, chilling there like like traffic cone.
And I'm like, Well, I mean, it's really not, uh, best situation, but I mean, it is what it is, but we still have them for like, another year or so and Jacob's ledges.
What? But hey, man, I just hope that he could bounce back.
That would be quite nice, if you ask me.
But a question for you here.
Victor with the Islanders.
What would you pay? My part is out because he is unrestricted.
He's a restricted free agent.
Excuse me? What would you consider paying in? How many years would you lock him up for? Um, I would definitely want to see a long term deal.
And I don't care as the right now.
The Islanders kept most of their pieces together.
They traded taste to keep bars.
L so I wouldn't mind throwing all the cap space I have left at bars.
L If I could get him on a 678 year deal, Maybe.
I think that's worth it.
There's not really anyone else we have the money for right now.
Like I can't see us having a room for, like, bars. Ellen Hoffman.
Or, like I know the Islanders were in talks about line A to so I can't see them affording.
And you wanna and bars L too.
So I don't see another quality player coming in.
So why not give him everything right now and then as cap space freeze up when, like the lad contract.
And then you can go after someone.
You might as well because you could build around guys like him and passion, for example.
But, Jacob, I got a question for you as well.
Do you think the Rangers should consider signing any pieces that are still available? Um, help improve, build around laughter nearing Kokko.
What do you think? You know, That's a great question, right? I took a liking. The re just captured.
We don't have a lot.
We've got a couple mill left.
Um, this basically the cap space is gonna go towards signing players next at the end of next season.
Right now, they locked up everybody they need to lock up.
There's nobody else that they have to recent.
The Rangers is definitely the center position, but we have.
Ah, very good prospect.
Baron used a captain for Cornell.
He's done a great job over there years.
We're gonna call him up.
I think that the team's gonna really built to become younger, faster and hopefully win championships.
Yeah, because I know we are Are both of our teams are kind of in similar situations here, but, I mean, you guys have players like Panera and its advantage ahead.
Top players are Kyle Palmeri and Acute Gustav.
I mean, that's a big difference.
I mean, all very good players, but it's a big difference.
You could easily build around the young guys with players like, um ****eryn.
Players like disadvantage at Boots individual those guys.
But similar situations have said, But moving on here, we got quite a few things left.
Uh, considering the season, maybe starting on January 13th, let's hope that's how. Let's hope.
Let's hope that's when that when it starts.
But there might be some like new rule changes.
For example, in the O. H l.
There is a new rule which I think is horrible, where you cannot body check or fight.
But I don't know.
What do you guys think it is? I think it's foolish.
I think it's terrible.
What do you guys think? Um, I see both sides of the argument like obviously, since you don't have a bubble situation, you don't want like a player to, like, check right in tow another one on like them be, like right next to each other, like face to face like that.
So you definitely don't want to like breathing on each other is like by following through with a hit, and hits result in injuries anyway.
So keeping guys healthy could be an exciting thing to watch.
You get smaller guys like, I think you said Holtz is on the smaller side.
So, um or maybe it with cubes.
Eso like they can play their style of game instead of like, adjusting to, like account for enforcers.
But like at the same time, it takes away jobs from people like Ryan Reeves.
This is probably the biggest goon in all of the NHL.
Really gonna have a need for him now, like all he did was rack up penalty minutes and hits and fights.
So Matt Martin, Cal Clutterbuck and Cizikas on the Islanders.
That takes away their purpose on the fourth line.
So it's something that has its benefits but a lot of drawbacks to it.
Yeah, I understand, because I mean, uh, um, Martin is one of the most respected players.
In my opinion, I love Matt Martin. Jacob.
You probably might think different because you don't like the island.
There's too much, not a big fan.
I mean, I love goon players like that.
I missed one of the devil's used to have all these like young dudes who we just called up that used to just get into fights for no reason.
I love I love that physical type of play like the Devil is used to play when we were good in, like the early two thousands late nineties with Scott Stephens, the crash line, all those guys.
It's fun to watch physical play.
And if you just see, like in today's NHL, No.
One get hit. No.
One fight, it would honestly take a little more excitement out of the game.
But I could see where you're coming from with, like, I mean the distancing between players.
But I think it's very weird.
I mean, we don't know how it's gonna work.
What do you think, Jake? No, for me, I'm personally all against it.
I don't think they should be doing this.
If Hughes and the smaller guys ****eryn, if none of the you don't want to get hurt, you should go play soccer.
You know, support ways to go about it just and Z and you know not in people is not the way to do it.
But I I know what you're talking about.
Victor, when you said that, it's gonna take jobs away from, you know, these these big mostly Bryant Reeves on these guys.
But, you know, as long as they follow certain portion testing a lot in the bubble and I know they're not gonna have playing what we call in the league bridges.
But you know, there there's certain ways to go about it.
And you can't take the game away from its its basic roots and hitting and physicality is definitely one of them.
Yeah, I agree with that as well, because, I mean, I could probably speak for all of us here when we say we do not like Tom Wilson.
I cannot. I cannot stand the guy.
E cannot stand the guy, But you are right.
I mean, it does like take because Ryan Reeves he's like a goon and Forster type guy.
Remember? When he's with the Penguins way? Saw him quite a bit.
Uh, the devil's really don't have too much of that anymore.
Blake Coleman used to get into it, but we traded him for steel, in my opinion.
But It's gonna be very weird if you see like no checking, no fighting because I love to see fights.
Um, it's especially in, like rivalry games.
And we were discussing before this the Battle of Alberta.
When you have, like, the goalie fights on and like, especially again games against our respective teams like Devils, Rangers, Rangers down, there's there's a big rivalry games right there, and there's always a fight or big hits in every time we put we faced each other and then just that would kind of limit the amount of fireworks in the amount of enthusiasm in the game.
Like Matt Martin used to go out and throw bodies, no matter who he's playing.
But like rivalry games, they add that extra physicality and the extra enthusiasm where people want to go out and be physical.
You know, I'm saying, Yeah, it's definitely gonna affect the Battle of Alberta a lot.
Like, um, that Cassie in I could see him getting suspended.
Milan new teach.
I think they will go after each other, which, like if they have a Battle of Alberta game, I'm gonna watch it because I don't think they're gonna follow it.
I honestly think that between, like, both teams have guns.
Could Shock is one of them.
I think he'll be smart enough because he's still a skilled player.
Thio stay out of hits and stuff.
But, like, I'm pretty sure the meat on blue teaches with the flames now, right? Yeah, I'm pretty sure.
So he'll go after that.
Cassie and Cassie, Um, we'll go after Obuchi each on.
They're gonna be in Alberta battle if you can't suspend the whole team.
So, yeah, when the goal is, they haven't take care.
Yeah, I mean, yeah, you got Jacob.
I got an interesting topic to bring up is just kind of following piggybacking onto what Victor was saying.
We saw it in baseball.
CJ, your big baseball guy.
Um, when benches clear doesn't happen often.
Baseball on benches. Clear.
Haven't I? Forgot Was, but they suspend some.
Well, because I want these matches to come together, you know, all once on the field.
I don't really see that happening with hockey, so long as everybody's allowed hitting everything.
Well, maybe there's an extra enforcement on making sure together at the end of a game or something like that.
Could the NHL be punishing? These players scream in the end, doing something along that line? Yeah.
I mean, I could honestly see that, because I'm a big Yankee fan.
You probably remember when the benches cleared against the Rays that game, and then Chapman got suspended and the manager's got suspended.
Uh, that was a fun game to watch.
I hate the Tampa Bay Rays, but there was also the other fight with the A's and the Astros.
The Astros are like the most hated team in baseball at the moment, and I respect the A's for stepping up there.
And then man Fred had to suspend him because he violated the covert rules.
I mean, it's it's bound to happen in the N h.
I mean, you really don't see bench clearing fights too much in the NHL, but I also, like, have a weird thing.
I've read this article the other day about like high school wrestling in Ohio.
You can't you can't shake hands after the match, but you could wrestle the person for all four quarters.
That's what I call it.
That's what, quite frankly, I do not understand what the point of that is, But getting back on track, the hockey here, you don't really see bench clearing fights.
I mean, but one time you might have seen that in recent years.
Maybe the Battle of Alberta once and Victor, you probably remember this one.
The Islanders Penguins game. Yeah.
You wanna You wanna recap that a little bit if you know anything? Because I don't think Jacob knows too much about that game enlightenment.
All right, So there was this one game where I think it was at the colleague where the Islanders and Penguins were in a blowout game.
I think the Islanders were winning, like, 71 Or maybe it was the other way around.
I remember it as 71 I don't know what the actual score Waas, but I probably have one.
The Islanders were winning.
Actually, they were when they were blowing out the Penguins.
Yeah, I was right.
I didn't just make that up.
Okay? So the penguins would do it.
Any other rival team would dio, When you're like getting blown out like that, you get momentum by, like, hitting the other team.
And like they were doing some stuff that like bend the rules a little bit.
Some penalties weren't called somewhere, and it just got out of hand.
I think every player on the ice was in a fight like they were just like 51 on one.
Who's going on? I don't think they were the goalie fight, but they're technically was in some his goalie and he, like, tossed him to the ground.
But okay, Calendars, gold.
He was the only person not in the fight at that moment, though.
And I'm pretty sure there were, like, 12, 30 13 fights total in that one night.
I've seen recaps of it.
It is a lot of fun to watch.
I don't like the Penguins for doing it.
I would like to see Crosby like, get a black eye, not be able to like CIA and, like maybe the only reason I wouldn't want Crosby to get injured with that we could still beat the Rangers.
But, um, as far as everything else goes, I don't like the Penguins on Lee. When they did the Rangers.
I pretty much hate every team in the NHL except for the Devils and I also like any team that's playing the Rangers on any given day.
Alright, Just lose I with.
I'm gonna throw a little wild card question.
Now you got alright. What we got.
I'm blanking on the name right now and I don't know why, but it's a defenseman for the what he called San Jose Sharks wanted to fight Jake Paul.
I can't think of his name Shooting happened.
I don't It sounds like it's not going what should happen.
Yes, I think it would be very good for the NHL.
It would bring publicity the hockey because you see a hockey guy going against some YouTuber who happens to be a boxer at the same time.
That would be beneficial to the NHL because people were like, Oh, ****, look, it's an NHL player And then, like, say, after the boxing fight, you're watching him on Evander Kane on TV playing, and they're like, Oh, look, that's do that just full of Jake.
Paul, let me watch this.
I would love to see that.
I would love to see Jake pull, uh, see what ah hockey fighters like.
Uh, that would be quite interesting.
What do you guys think about this.
I think it'd be awesome for the game of hockey and for doing purposes as well.
I mean, as faras cane fighting, um, Paul, Like, I like it somewhat because almost sharks fan also like, I like the Islander than sharks.
So for my, uh, to paper teams for a while.
So I don't want to see Paul like, uh, beat up cane and like, it heard the NHL because, like if Paul wins that fight, it's not going to really help publicity for the NHL.
I feel like eso.
It really depends on how the fight goes.
Like I would of course, like to see Kane beat up Paul.
But I don't know if that's going to be the case.
I think we all would.
Yeah, that guy needs to be shut up and put in this place.
What are you thinking about this? You think you know e.
I think it's pretty funny.
It's pretty hysterical, but at the end of the day, the vendor Cain's gonna be going into the ring with I forgot what was in love energy.
Jake, right? Because really, G Jake's been in the ring before.
I think Jake should step on the ice and put on some skates and try to maintain his balance while in the middle of a fight with a bunch of gear on you.
I feel like you don't get enough credit.
Everybody thinks that all I could fight, I could street fight.
I could put on some boxing gloves.
How do you stand on a couple millimeters of, uh, of Steel and try fighting in it? I agree with that because Nate Robinson was not in a ring before he was a basketball player for the Knicks.
I feel like that was a bit of an unfair advantage for for Jake Poll.
But if you put a guy like Jake, Paul and Ice, it would kind of given advantage to Evander Kane, which would be a good thing.
That would be a good thing.
There'll be a very good thing, but I a few minutes ago, Victor said, he has a second favorite team in this shark.
Do you have? Do you guys have a Jacob? Do you have a second favorite team as well? E don't know.
A few years ago, I started collecting hockey hats and I've got like a bunch of different hats and everything.
Want to get a look at all the other everything.
When I started collecting these I got was gone.
Um and I really like a charity work.
The there the Rangers do a great job owners.
That was a lot of these guys do a great job.
They specifically would go out kind of like the Make a Wish Foundation.
And I do a lot of great stuff.
So ever since then, I really like Chicago.
I mean, I'm kind of like I'm kind of like that person that just routes for the Devils and strictly the Devils.
But let's say the devil's just moved one day and like or like, folded and this will never happen.
What the devil's ever left.
I'd probably become an island, their friend.
And I'm gonna tell you why.
Because a the island, this is a New York, Be my dad's an Islander fan and see they're better than the Rangers.
They're better than the Rangers and D I just can never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever root for the New York Rangers, Man.
E C J yo, you've been shopping a lot this podcast.
I think you need a little bit.
I think you need to read the hat as well.
All right, all right, well, I'm wearing my what a coincidence, Because what? Two years ago, 2000 and 12.
That's the when we beat you guys in the oil.
All right, well, it's my favorite moment as a devil's fan.
That's like my more victory throughout.
Well, not my only moment.
I mean, my other moment was, Let me share.
I want to share this story.
What was it? What was It was either three or four.
I think it was four of the semi finals that season against the Flyers, and the Devils were winning.
Then the Flyers, where it was like a back and forth game and the devil's wanted in overtime.
And here I am, like, How old was I would say, like, six, or I'd say, like, seven.
I going nuts. I'm seven years old, I barely remember.
I do remember it a lot.
What? That was probably one of my favorite devil moments, but nothing will ever be 2012.
Henrik gets over.
That was the all time best moment ever for because I never saw the Stanley Cups.
So this is just my generation we're talking about.
I mean, if I was alive in the late nineties, it would be nice to see some of the cups.
What do you guys? I mean, as I said, favorite moments with our teams.
You guys have any, like, specific ones? Islanders and Rangers.
I mean, the Islanders haven't been that impressive since the eighties.
I know that there's still a better franchise in the Rangers because, um, the Rangers only have, um, like one Stanley Cup with, like, a decent amount of teams in the league.
The other three were like original six cups, so those don't really count.
So I'll give them, like two Stanley Cups.
Thank you for proving my point. Exactly.
Stanley Cup is a Stanley Cup.
Well, it's not wrong, but I mean, there were five other teams in the league.
I mean, that's like less than the whole Metro division.
Like every team made the video and and kisses, they actually does the edit levels to the Stanley Cup.
Like like more Stanley Cup champions were added.
So I really like pretty light back then.
But originally and originally was just like the bowl on the top.
And then as more teams started toe win, they had to put like more and more and more.
But yeah, eso back to what I was saying, even though, like the couple's heavier back in the eighties, I wasn't around for that, so I can't really pick that.
My favorite moment.
Of course, I loved watching this season.
It was one of the most enjoyable seasons for May like the playoffs, not the actual season, because Thio to see how it go down and in the island after they did so good at the beginning.
I'm a devil's fan.
I understand your pain anyway.
I can't take this season, so I'm gonna take this game.
I went to, um, I don't know if Tyler Sagan with on the Stars or Bruins at this point, but I would very little.
I didn't know that much about hockey, but I knew I was. Then I'll understand.
That's the only thing I knew.
So I see Tyler Siegen.
He hits one of the Islanders.
He got like a five minute major for boarding or something? I don't know, but he got into, like, CJ.
You're a baseball fan, You know that? Like the players, they always get in the umps face when, like you get ejected.
So there was that in a hockey game with the Islanders? Tyler Sagan with ****ed.
I don't know if he deserved to be, um, get like, a game misconduct, But it was so funny to watch because I was not understand.
Like a Bruins fan got, like, kicked out, So it was fun, But, um, I wish I knew more about hockey at the time, but there haven't been too many exciting moments on the island, but still more than the rangers in the garden.
I'm currently getting violated in the comments right here.
Um, very creative guys, but yeah, Jacob has a point here.
What do we got? What your next arena is gonna be right next.
Worst able bodied.
That Zika all better.
You again now gonna be covered.
Victor is gonna be covered in manure just like the others franchise.
Your your stadium is above a train station stadium getting right.
It's an arena. It's arena.
My bed, My bed my baseball.
Alright, my man, I I am still in baseball, motor and football, but I actually have another story to share.
Um, this has to be one of my top five double moments from my lifetime.
So the year is 2018.
My birthday is on December 14th.
So it's on my birthday the first time.
The devil's air playing Vegas.
I'm pre No, no, but for no, it wasn't the first time playing Vegas.
We're playing Vegas at home on my birthday.
Uh, Cory Schneider.
This is when he was declining, he sucked.
We were losing, like, 4 to 1 at the end of the first period.
I shut off the game.
I'm like, I I ain't, uh, getting myself upset on my birthday.
So I'm about to eat my cake and I blow out the candle and my mom's like, Yo, you're wishing for something.
I'm like, yeah, I want the devils to come back.
I said it as a joke and my whole family laughed at it, and I turned back on the game right after that.
And then they go and scored three unanswered.
And then they went in overtime.
I don't know how the hell that was possible.
But it was probably one of the best birthdays I ever had.
And probably one of the best moments I've experienced with Jacob were missing.
What's your Rangers favorite moment here? I don't know.
I've got a lot of good ones.
Something you guys probably don't know a lot about.
But it was probably packing.
I think that you remember I was pretty, but on one of my I was playing with rice hockey, we got, like, an invitation Thio to go skate on Madison Square.
You're on ice in between the intermission in between the region.
I also got to go there.
I didn't get a goal.
Sounds pretty mad about that.
It was a pretty neat Rangers.
Might have been the wind.
So maybe that's pretty sick.
I mean, like, I've I've played basketball on the court where Barclays Center like after a few Brooklyn Nets games. That's fun.
But there's nobody in the stands.
I mean, that must be sick, like standing on ice and you see, like mad people like, Yeah, that would be sick.
But the first thing I did when I went out there.
My dad's like, just make sure up, 3 60 it was just results.
That's awesome, dude. Like I've been.
I've been to the Garden quite a few times for Devils Rangers games, especially cause my uncle's a Ranger fan used to go all the time.
Uh, when the Devils lost, it sucked.
But when the Devils one, it was awesome.
I mean, I was the last time I went to one of those.
I think I was 4th, 5th grade.
That was long time ago, but those were always fun.
I mean, rivalry games are always the best to experience.
I mean, like, I treat the Ranger Devil Games like playoff games.
That's just me, though.
I never experienced playoff games because I'm a devil's fan.
So I treat the rivalry games like, because it's either.
I go to school the next day and I get absolutely flamed by the whole entire school, for we're talking so much crap about the devil's by the wind and then they're going lose or it's the best among the Devils win and I get to rub it in everyone's face because, um, obnoxious devils fan at times kick up.
You know what? I'm going to get season tickets.
Um, msg for Rangers games.
Yeah, I don't care.
I want to know why.
CJ, with people in suits, every time I've went toe msg, the Rangers have came out winless.
They've never won.
When I was there, they will be the new territory Red Wings.
And you have me to thank for that Red Wings stuck at home.
But I Yeah, let me hear Jacobs come back to this.
Actually, I think you guys now pretty badly, so I No, I think it's an even match here.
Like, I think it's a tie.
Yeah, I would say so, too.
If not, I'm winning it right now.
Yeah, I mean, Victor's condoms Sa***e.
I mean, it's coming out of random moments with this stuff, and, I mean, are the what he called Belmont your Belmont Arena is gonna be down Wind from a bunch of hor***** who every all the winds gonna be blown right on the the the arena.
How is that gonna be deal? You know what? It's gonna be a newer stadium than MSG, which obviously has a curse when I'm there.
So yeah, I think we should.
I think we should go to a bunch of Ranger games now and we could watch the Rangers lose and style.
The only good thing about MSG is there was like, food.
Um, do you guys know this, um, show friends? Yeah.
I don't watch it, but it's not my favorite, so Well, anyway, the only good thing that happened there was they had a scene.
They're on board.
Um, the puck got shot over the glass and one of, like, the main characters got hit by the puck.
And that guy with the Rangers fan.
So? Well, that's pretty fitting.
Yeah, like right on the notes.
But me and Victor, our allies, because where the Devils and Islanders, it's not really a rivalry.
It kind of just Yeah.
I mean, it's an agreement.
Hate on the Rangers.
It's a pack to hate on the Rangers and occasionally, the Flyers.
If you don't like the Flyers, I mean, the Flyers are always the devil's viable because New Jersey is split into three parts.
We got the devil fans, but then we've had the Flyer and Ranger fans who were there before the Devils even moved to Jersey.
So there's always going to be more Rangers and Flyers fans populated through the state, especially like nearly like Pennsylvania.
That's where you got it all the Flyer fans.
And when you go to double fire double Ranger games and there's like half the crowd is it's like a a mixed crowd because a the garden is too expensive, and b there's just a ton of Flyers fans that live in the area.
It's always, uh, uh huh, yeah, because I yeah, because my uncle used to have, like, season tickets and he stopped paying for because they were overpriced.
And I mean the gardens.
Don't get me wrong.
It's a nice little arena, but little see there.
It is the best city in America.
I mean, I think we could all agree on that.
We're all from New York, but the two teams I do not like play at the Garden.
Therefore, I'm not the biggest fan and I'm not.
I don't like the Knicks.
I never really I haven't for quite some time now, and obviously the Rangers are arch rivals with the Devils, so I do not like them.
You'll never see me rooting for the Rangers, ever.
But there's one team, me and Jake.
I'll probably agree on this.
There's one team we probably both don't like.
And that's the Los Angeles Kings.
I never liked the King's from when I was little.
I went to a Devil's Kings game and at the Rock and, like 2010 and the Devils were winning with a minute and a half left.
And then Wayne Simmonds scored a goal for the Kings to tie.
And then the King scored the game winner with, like, 10 seconds left.
And here I am, like I'm like, five years old.
I'm like, What the hell just happened? And now it means is on your team doing absolutely nothing.
I was so sad, man.
I was Oh, man, that sucks.
But then the cup final of that year.
Oh, man, that was just heartbreaking stuff.
And I probably speak for you when I say that as well.
In 2014, it's terrible.
One very sad stuff, actually.
I got his jersey on right now.
Not bad. I got a Kyle Palmieri.
You probably can't see it.
I got Hanks Jersey I got an Islanders hoodie on.
And I got, of course, the conference champions hat from 2012.
Um, come image Children, Champions Trophy? No, because now you're just mad that we beat you guys.
That your child.
I don't even care.
If we lost the Stanley Cup player.
That was literally the Stanley Cup victory for the Devils fan base to just beat the Rangers and the playoffs.
It's like, Yeah, I mean, we haven't had success since then.
I mean, if you wanna call 2018 a playoff run, Well, it was a fluke.
I'm sorry to break her other Devils fans.
When I say that Taylor Hall carried us, there was no way we were weren't making the playoffs if Taylor Hall was not that good, but it is what it is.
I mean, we'll all see the playoffs again one day.
Um, I imagine, like all three of our teams, and at one time that would be awesome.
Yeah, it would be the Islanders and Rangers.
The Islanders beat the Rangers and then the Islanders and Devils conference finals, Islanders Family Cup.
And they the Kings be the Islanders.
That complete the tree up.
Oh, but although I want to bring up a topic quickly out of locals that are good in bed, I just want to say there is no good argument for the Rangers logo they can't even put on their main jersey.
All right, well, that is a fair point victory.
If you wanna talk about logos and hunting, you have to buy from China Exact same retro jerseys.
Yeah, but at least that was on a jersey.
Your ranges logo.
I don't even get on your mane Jersey.
Have you let me know about that? Let me Let me Let me be the moderator here.
I feel like I feel like Chris Wallace over here.
I'm moderating a debate.
I'm gonna let me.
My real name actually is Chris, in case you guys didn't know that, Yes, it is.
But I am going to say that the fish stick logo is one of the best logos in NHL.
His Yeah, and they didn't bring back.
They didn't bring it back because I understand at the time didn't like it.
It was all a bunch of boomers who didn't like it at the time.
No, rather have it in the Rangers logo.
They should have brought it back this year.
They didn't even bring it back.
They should have.
But you know what? At least we have a, like a primary logo.
The deadline was that like, although I see that you're Oh, no, you were You were talking.
I didn't want to interrupt you.
The deadline was at, like, 12 o'clock to submit the honor shares on the intern.
The intern that was working on.
He's probably color blind.
And he's just clicking on random buttons and it turns out the jerseys didn't even change way.
Wouldn't do anything like we already got to the Eastern Conference finals this year.
So we didn't want any, like, dumb convict medicine taking medicine.
That was all right.
I'm not no voice out.
It's been a great Yeah.
On that note, the devil's logo is awesome.
That's all I got to say.
Yeah, before that gets out of hand about logos.
Um e thank you to everyone who joined.
It was a ton of fun.
