  1. Why do you guys hate on tough players so much especially during playoff time. Yeah some take bad penalties, but just because fights go down doesn't mean physical play as a whole does. Playoff hockey is the most intense hockey out there. So, it pains me to see Bergfors name thrown around he plays like a bitch. I'm not going to say Leblond deserves it even though I enjoy watching him play, but he is doing Holik's and especially RUPP's job and doing it better. Im sick of seeing us "afraid to take penalties" when people run Marty over it's damn discraceful. I see allot of hockey fans say we are a tough team and I highly disagree. We have tough players who are held back because we are afraid to take penalties. I hate the "dumb" penalties like the Holik interference but when the Devils are afraid to stick up for eachother to avoid penalties it makes me sick because thats how Booins play and I hate it. Like in the Ottawa game when Leblond stepped in and beatup Winchester after the multiple hits on Clarkson that showed allot, also I forget who it was but a 'cane ran into Marty and PL3 chewed him out but didn't do anything to get a penalty atleast let other players know that they won't stand for Marty getting run over. As a big fan of physical hockey I had to get this off my chest. GO DEVILS!!
  2. I maybe wrong but I think Buttman and Friends are using this to slowly weed out fighting to market skill. Butthole's vision of hockey is that in 5yrs it will be played like the allstar game. With addition to fighting the hitting restrictions are putting a chokehold on the overall physical side of hockey. No one likes to see your player get boarded but 50% of the time players turn thier head to get the 5minute major. 15 yrs ago boarding wasn't a problem because people wouldn't think of trying to draw a boarding call. Back to Butthead, I get sick to my stomach watching games (Devil's aren't immune) that are like a intersquad scrimmage were there's virtually no hitting. I love fighting but It's not the only reason I love hockey. Call me a neanderthal or whatever, I would probably agree with you lol but I love watching players that shut their mouth and do everyting their team asks them to do. I enjoy watching players like David Clarkson and Janssen because they are fearless on the ice and I have allot of respect for those players. I get more excited seeing a goal like when clarkie ran over toskala, A defenseman, dislodged the net and scored the goal because he puts so much effort into that goal rather than a nice deke. 1 More thing get rid of the fvcking instigator. Thats half the problem with dirty hits. It protects Avery, Rutuu, and hollweg and those players make me sick. PLEASE bring back physical hockey I know so many people who can't stand post lockout hockey bring back the old NHL and your revenue will skyrocket.
  3. lol yeah I guess it don't really matter then plus those 4th liners Asham-Carcillo-Cote aren't very Intimidating defensively, with a sh!t goalie to boot.
  4. You guys are kinda missing the point on carcillo though he's not a huge pickup, however If he can be a "Clarkson" for them that's an upgrade for them. Upshall wasn't great partly because John Stevens held him back. Clarkson has made a real big impact on our team this year. 30+ points top tier in Scaps. He does it all a grinder with offense. Philly does have 4 - "Middleweights" and I don't really a centerman out of those 4. I think this move may put Cote in the same place as Rupp is now which is on the outside looking in. Cote is turned useless, he gets the tar beat out of him and doesn't really fight or hit much which was the only way he was effective. For many teams this is an upgrade but for Philly eh it's alright. BTW the diffrence between Carcillo and Avery is Avery is a bitch, Carcillo isn't.
  5. Oh how I would love to see a great interference hit on avery like on Asham the other day. Like one of those when he acts like "oh uh didn't see ya there and continues to climb over the guy and push him when hes down". Neither of them fight though, It's weird those years with Janssen around he never got a piece of him, I mean even hollweg hiked up his skirt and fought him. I just wish for the rags they didn't call instigators cuz He really needs a good pummeling along with Rutuu, downie, Hollweg. This kinda players always seem to fire me up lol
  6. I watched the PHI/PIT game and got treated with those fvckin PIT announcers. All he did is cream himself everytime crosby and malkin touched the puck whinned about philly diving. I was like you have the king of whinning and exagerating. Crosby pisses me off so much, he runs his mouth alll the time, Mike Richards hit him hard and the announcers were like: Crosby's looking for Richards but he went back to the bench. Im thinkin Richards would drop crosby and I'd love to see it. I'm glad Pit won so Philly don't gain any ground, It's tough because I really hate Cindy Criesby and friend and in my heart really want them to lose evry game.
  7. Is it just me or does Boston dive like whenever you touch them, that hook on Chara was funny to see after Rupp couldn't knock him over when he caught chara with his head down, then somone not nearly as big as Rupp hook's him a wee lil bit and he falls to the ice. I guess I just don't like their approach when it comes to penalties. Also I love how they hide Lucic from 4th liners. There best hitter plays against finese 1st liners, real tough there loochy. But all in all great game.
  8. Im actually pleased because I think We owe him about 2-dozen beatings. If they allow him to come back they should put him and George Laraque in the same penalty Box for 5 min.
  9. I agree, it also seems that Boston likes to dive a bit
  10. Give the 4th line a break you want them running around with fvcking skirts on? it's hockey not soccer boys. I would argue our 4th line is better than 90% of the 4th lines in the league.
  11. Detroit, Boston, LA, Ducks, Florida, Toronto, Columbus, Thrashers, Janssen, Yotes, Wild, Hawks Blues/Philly should be a "sloberknocker" i'll be watchin that 1.
  12. I would agree with that but allot of people on here are obscessed with not taking penalties. NEWS FLASH: 4TH LINERS TAKE PENALTIES. Refs target 4th liners if theres a scrum and Clarkson Rupp or Holik are within 100 ft of it they get penalized. Thank god we dont have a 4th line like Philly (Gratton, Cote, Asham) you guys would be jumping off bridges.
  13. I don't mind he I like the way he plays. I wish the NHL would change and not Bobby but the NHL isn't going to change. They look for ways to make the game less physical and that pisses me off. There will be a day were it is gunna to be played like the all-star game. That day I will find a new sport.
  14. Man give the guy a break. He adds something that the devils were missing when he was hurt. Yeah he takes penalties but in this "NEW" NHL he don't get away with half the crap he used to. The Rupp, Holik, Shanny line is great in the offesnive zone, no one can knock them off the puck. The funniest thing was when puck was dumped into the corner and the Penguins got the hell out of the corner because Holik was coming. And thought Godard was scratched until I saw him wih the puck like 1 time in the third, He seemed quite. Betcha he was afraid of Rupper giving him a beating.
  15. LOL I love how Doc/Chico spent 1 minute talking pittsburgh Pirates, that has to be the longest Pirates conversation I've herd in quite some time
