  1. my personal opinion is the players thought too highly of Hedberg and didnt play as hard for him as they should have. Remember when Clemmonson came in to replace an injured Marty and it seemed the defense played extra hard cause they seemed to know he wasn't the best goalie around and thus made him better. Hedbergs great in a game here or there but not for the long haul. I think one of the rookies being in would have made them play harder and feel more responsibility. Thats what i think is lacking, whoever is in goal, from begining of season when they were winning til now where they seem to be in a cluster-f*** of not working together. Anyone else see that or get what im saying?
  2. last year, granted i only started watching games reguraly that year they lost to the Rangers with that whole Avery ordeal. That said, i was used to first round outages so i guess my opinioun doesnt count. Frankly last year, i expected for the flyers to sweep after the first game loss. what happened afterwords was an amazing ride. So happy to see Gionta and that fourth line come through and Kovy coming so far in the playoffs(im drinking, i may be wrong but i remember being happy with him) ad Broduer being amazing in goal in sadly what i think will be the last we see of his greatness before age hits him. And Henrique coming up and that neat hockey card i got of him celebrating in front of lundquist. such a great ride. Just happened to hit a team that was instride in the finals, nothing to be ashamed of. What bothered me most was that stupid TMZ footage of the Devils after the loss at the bar.
  3. duh, i keep forgetting lockout, guess lou or imaginary me as him, couldnt make them do it. be nice though
  4. yay, something hockey to watch. just alert me which one is the sean avery bugging Marty and then scoring . so sick of my ranger fan freinds brining that up. its their highlight of the rivalry. cause they are stupid
  5. Disappointed no devils arent in this. They are "Jerseys team". If i owned the Devils, I'd be asking or paying them to do charity work, handing out supplys, raising money etc, to make the team more likeable (that sound kinda evil, like taking advantage of the situation but it 'd be a win win for everyone.) In a lockout when your team cant fill a stadium, its a great oppurtunity to gain interest in hte team (still sounds evil but you see what i mean).
  6. got power back here in bloomingdale, hope all you guys are safe. im more of a lurker on this site but love the valuble info you guys give me on the team. The sucky part of getting power back is a few of my neighbors dont have power still. Makes me feel guilty but then i heard a story from a co worker how their son has the same thing , but is the one without power and his neighbor is putting up christams lights while he sits in his cold dar k house. dont do that, that will get you killed. anyhow,i seethe posts on global warming, perhaps that is it, perhaps we just built on stuff that wasnt built, i was going to bed beofre the storm and was checking the weather and they were playing a show on this thing called H.A.A.R.P. Research it, it seems totally ridicoulous like area 51 or bigfoot but as i kept watching, they gave evidence that this HAARP project in Alaska is legite. Basically according to their patient application, they are trying to control the weather. Clintons secertary of defense ( i believe that was the title) admitted it on record. Other countries, i think it was russia, have this techonology too, it involves frying the atmosphere and casueing this. I know it sounds crazy but since we got no hockey to watch, its an interesting thing to research. My biggest fear was always that the dumbasses would control the weather, they always want it to be sunny and nice out, my garden would die with no rain. imagine if this HAARP crap is real, countries using weather to attack each other. Hopefully its not the case, that would be scary. think about it, you d o that and then if anyone catches on to it, people go "youre crazy to think that". ANyhow, not sure i buy it but that clinton guy admitting they are doing it makes you think. Fun off hockey season research. Research before you just call me crazy.
  7. i needed some type of sports tonight. i watched Baseball tongiht. BASEBALL PEOPLE>. rooted for the orioles. they won. if not for beer, i'd beasleep at nine
  8. I think Bettman needs a visit from the ghost of hockey past to remind him how he used to just screw the devils over and now hes taking on too much in the screwing over fans department. Perhaps the spirit will remind him of this and go to the way it used to be.
  9. Awesome card, i was at a wedding that night, and stuck at the white people table (shh, its not racist, black people for teh most part dont follow hockey) , some at the table who actually liked hockey. I remember hearing from someone with a smart phone taht Henrique scored. I jumped up and down with my wife to the one ranger fans (half ass one who only watches playoffs) discontent. Then i get the wife to drive me to a bar (ranger bar in NJ) to gloat and all the ranger fans tell me Lundquist screwed up, just stood there and did nothing while Henrigque came behind the net and did a wraparound. Video evidence would prove them wrong and jsut being disgruntled. So as part of my wifes birthday present next month, i plan to get this card on ebay, a little token to remind her of that great night that we had to miss, but were so relieved to have it end that way. Other thing im getting her is hopefully this David Clarkson signed framed photo i saw in a store. She has a thing for him (unless he takes his helmet off and then she thinks his forehead is too big) just swiped two of them for a buck each on ebay. yay, such a great card, i collected baseball cards as a kid (late 80's the worthless ones), these new ones with stories behind them are so much better.
  10. i got that kovalchuk shirt for my birthday last month. told my wife i saw a guy wearing it and apparently i was talking like a kid so she got it for me. its bad ass, i love it. Wore it hiking though, with a backpack on and a white t-shirt underneath in 100 degree weather. the number bled onto my t-shirt from sweat and its pink now. not sure if thats normal or cheap printing.
  11. the "Not a lot of Nascar fans in the area " is waht shocked me reading the post s above. when i went back to Williamsport two years ago for the first time since 97. My freind who lives there confirmed its just not big anymore. I dont remember seeing the 2 nascar shops in the mall either. Barely any if any bumper stickers. Lots of people on cell phones driving though, almost like it was everyone. I rememeber partying in a dorm room in 96 and making country music and nascar jokes and six of the biggest 6'5, lugged hay bales all their lives, redneck guys you ever see surround me and ask me what i said about nascar. I freaked but told them "i'm from new jersey and dont get it". They then asked "what part of Jersey" and i said "north" and they laughed and said "Oh we know your type" and walked away. Might have been different if i said "southern".
  12. i went to college in Williamsport in the mid 90's. The thugs were big in that town. Then Philidelphia sent their drug dealers etc there in a choice of that or go to jail. they beat up the old thugs and took over. Have fun out there. Cant see anyone in that general area wanting to see hockey. The only way i could imagine you could sell the locals a ticket to a game is if you slapped nascar stickers all over the players and had them make loud engine noises while skating in a circle. Zamboni would have to be painted to resemble a tractor. Shame about the Outlaws. just heard about them last year but never got to go to a game. it looked like fun. In fairness , i did go back two years ago. the area is rebuilding and my college is actually really respectable now. I wouldnt be accepted if i was to try now.
  13. i think since we are Devil fans, we dont appreciate how good they have been the last season and a half. Every loss pisses us off and makes us think its over. I think back to teh playoffs and i remember being bummed out many times and doubting they could come back but they did.Thats whats differnet about this years team, they came back. LIke Marty after a bad game, the whole team came back. Not like other years, like the playoffs agianst philly where they seemed to give up, they came back. they didnt let history tell them it wasnt possible to not beat the rangers, flyers and get out of the first round. Thats what made me proud this season even if they did loose in teh end (then i blame refs for allowing LA to shove Devils anytime they entered teh zone and many the bad call, even so i'll give LA credit). another big factor in my eyes is Pittsburgh got knocked out in the first round. I really dont see the Devils beating them but in fairness, i thougth they were done in Philly like i imagine so many others did. I like being wrong. Frankly i think the Devils are going to suck next year and players are getting older and wont put up numbers like last eyar , lots of injuries due to fatique from last year and age, Marty will loose it, and the 4th line will have blown its load but prove me wrong....please.
  14. sucks, video is gone. Cam rules, he used to come to a bar i went to with a devils cheerleader he was dating during his first Jersey tour. he did anything he wanted. he was awesome.
  15. banana bread, ha
