Sound Familiar?

Maybe it is Ilya that is the curse?


Devils skate to verge of bankruptcy


The attendance-challenged, heavily indebted team missed its Sept. 1 loan payment, giving its lenders a breakaway chance to push the team into bankruptcy, a source with direct knowledge of the situation said.

“The Devils are blowing up,” the source said.


Two issues are complicating matters. First, principal owner Jeff Vanderbeek and co-owner Ray Chambers, each of whom owns 47 percent of the franchise, are on the outs. Chambers, through his Brick City Hockey unit, has been trying to sell his non-controlling stake in the franchise for a year.

Lou Lam is the only reason that team is still in NJ. That arena was a ghost town the first 5-6 seasons before Marty arrived.

4-5 years out of the playoffs and that team is somewhere else.

How funny would it be if that team is relocated to Atlanta or Quebec City.

Wouldn't be very funny. I went to a Devils game in NJ a while ago - great arena and good crowd. I would hate to see them lose a team to a bunch of obnoxious Canadian douchebags. Canadians are fucking annoying.

Not funny at all. After losing two teams, I don't want another city's hockey club. After 12 years of expansion team hockey under Don Waddell, I don't think I could take another "5 year plan". Of course it's a moot point. Monkey's will fly out of bill day's *** before this town gets considered for another NHL team.
