  1. Around the League 15-16 Edition

    Anyway, moving onto the rest of the season, tonight the Kings visit MSG. But there won't be any marquee goalie match-up. It's emergency recall Budaj vs Raanta, who finally gives Hank a night off. That said, LAK and NYR both have 67 points. Only one leads their division. Big difference.  Game Preview: A look at the Kings and Rangers Plus a shot at the idiot Girardi bashers who take their hatred too far. Same frauds who supported him. Same ones who you Devil fans deal with.

    Those are the same losers who can't acknowledge that Marty proved himself after losing Stevens, Niedermayer and Daneyko. Rafalski too. He beat our goalie at age 40 in that Conference Final. Still hurts.

    Personally, I hate comparisons. CR has it right. It's comparing apples to oranges. Brodeur played in the 90's and pre-lockout to earn it. So, there's no comparison. I can't stand the Ranger fans who try to put down Brodeur. You had some idiots sending out Retweets about how Hank had a .920 save percentage in x amount of seasons compared to Brodeur. As if that matters. He was being honored. And some idiot bloggers had to RT that nonsense. My response was: Why does it matter? I got no reply. Because that's how some NYR fans are. Obnoxious. Have to sneak in a shot any way they can. In fact, my least favorite people to follow are the NYR bloggers who cite Corsi and Fenwick for everything and continually bash Girardi and Staal for everything. Even when they have good nights, the complaints persist. If the team wins like it did shutting down Crosby, it continues. These people think their opinion is gospel. That only their blogs and their stuff matters. It's kinda ridiculous.  Not every NYR fan is like this. I have a decent following and some are much cooler and aren't arrogant douches. Some actually realize that it's not just our team that exists. Anyway, I find that social media has dumbed things down. The caliber of fan is different. And since the MSG renovation, it's gotten worse. No wonder I no longer care about going.

    By the same token, Brodeur had at least 50 shootout wins that were tacked on to his record. So, let's be fair here. And why can't we recognize Lundqvist's accomplishment? God forbid our fans be happy that he's even in the same conversation as Marty.

    Kinda a big test for the Rangers minus McDonagh. They pass thanks to 34 saves from Lundqvist, who records his 58th shutout and records career win 366 to break the tie with Brodeur for most wins by a goalie in the first 11 seasons. Crosby doesn't record a shot and has his seven-game goal streak and 11-game point string snapped. A credit to Staal and Girardi with Girardi playing a strong defensive game. Goals from Hayes and Dom Moore, who sniped one. Fast with the empty after taking a cheap run from Letang.  What it means. Pens remain tied with Devils at 61 points. So, it helps the Devils. 
  6. The Marty Night thread

    Hasan wrote a nice recap of both the Night With Marty and the Jersey Retirement. Kudos. Read Hasan's unreal recap of Brodeur Night A night worthy of a legend http://wp.me/p2H1nm-4cV #ASaluteToMB30 #Brodeur #NJDevils
  7. GDT: Thank You Marty. 8pm MSG+

    Great job by the Devils. Fantastic ceremony. I especially liked the Metallica "Hero Of The Day" for the video montage. It was perfect. And loved Lou's joke. Shows he can make a joke. Poor Bettman. That was the only thing I didn't get. What a great speaker. And he has a good sense of humor. Brodeur's speech was terrific. You all should be so proud. Enjoy the game.
  8. GDT: Thank You Marty. 8pm MSG+

    Congrats to Brodeur on his special night. He transcended hockey. Marty made the Hudson Rivalry what it was. It hasn't been the same since.  A tribute to Martin Brodeur. The man who is the Devils. Without him none of the games between our teams would've mattered. Enjoy the festivities. This is your boy's night.
  9. Jersey's Team vs Broadway's Hudson Rivalry Feb. 8 GDT

    I would give him the Vezina over Holtby, who has so much offense and defense. Schneider basically is by himself. He gave his team every chance. The goal he gave up to Miller was off a quick transition. Smart drop by Brassard and a quick shot by Miller. But without Cory, you guys are screwed. They'd probably be dead last. 
  10. Jersey's Team vs Broadway's Hudson Rivalry Feb. 8 GDT

    The Devils haven't had the puck. Kind of hard to get anything going when you can't get out of your end. They oughta give Schneider the Vezina. He has so much less to work with.

    Same fans who turned on Lindros when it was the Flyers medical staff that didn't do their job.

    New Post on the silly whining over Simmonds. Time for Rangers to focus on the remaining schedule minus McDonagh for now.  
  13. Jersey's Team vs Broadway's Hudson Rivalry Feb. 8 GDT

    Sorry. It didn't go through the other time. Just delete the others.
  14. Around the League 15-16 Edition

    Yeah. But come on. I understood why he was upset. I didn't think it was worth a match. But it turned out to be right. And now AV is whining about not suspending Simmonds for that rule. And Larry Brooks is whining as usual. Just shut up. It's hockey.
  15. Around the League 15-16 Edition

    I do agree. They're a bunch of bitches. And the Flyer fans are no better. Using Staal's crosscheck on Crosby when they despise Sid and the Pens more than us. Talk about pot meeting kettle. It's just embarrassing.
