We Suck

254 posts in this topic

I loathe it. The way some of these morons talk about the players I love is mindblowing. I am confident we'll make the playoffs this year. And, if we don't, I will clap loudly at the draft and remain confident that we'll make the playoffs next year. I'm a fan, someone who loves the team. Self-proclaimed "realists" are crocks of sh!t. They use the phrase "realist" to mask their short tempered and 'what have you done for me lately' attitude. What if you were rangers fans and couldn't remember the last Stanley Cup victory? Leafs fans? Flyers fans? You act like the team does you a PERSONAL injustice because they aren't leading the league in wins. Hrmph, you lose your backbone of the team to free agency, your Hall of Fame goaltender was out the majority of the season, and now your 100 million dollar superstar has missed time? What the flying fvck do you expect?

Being a fan means rooting for your team. The list of people to ignore is getting too great. I love these forums, I spent too many hours arguing and bickering and talking about the Devils here. But I cannot do it any more. It's blood boiling to see the self entitled sons of bitches whine like they're on their period. Not like you will miss me anyway, but I'm done.

Maybe I'll come back when the board doesn't make me want to kick kittens, but for at least the next while I'm outta here.

You made some seriously valid points.  I am in my thirties and have been blessed to watch a team that was just down right terrible when I was a young lad to a team that has been in the thick of it from year to year.  Its a great accomplishment with what they have done especially with Marty between the pipes.  As a fan I am forever greatful for all the memories.  But the times are changing and so has this team.. We were so defensively based in those years of success and teams dreamed of our lineups.  But the tide is shifting and most teams today have 3 amazing players on their front line.  My focus as a fan is where are we headed?  What proactive moves will be made in the off season, how are we hedging Marty? So many questions with really no answer set... Its more of a panic on my behalf as a fan of what I see coming down the pipeline..

 

And the I find myself to be a realist.  Its just owning whats really happening vs sugar coating it with butterflies and rainbows like some people do.  Like saying, " well Kovy is out".. hate to break the bank but he hasnt done anything this year..

 

There is a realist comment..

How can you call yourself a realist and then make such an ABSURD comment? Kovy has done nothing? He leads the team in both powerplay and shorthanded points (even still after being out the last 5 games), he leads the team in time on ice, and he's still second in scoring by a pretty wide margin. I mean, the powerplay has become absolutely useless, down from it's usual mediocre at best. He's not far off his usual PPG pace, either. But you're right, we're the exact same team without him as we were with him. Unreal.

Nobody said they weren't good.. only solid player so far this year is Elias.. Henrique not living up to his name, bunch of big goals in the right moments.. I say right place right time for him.. Zajac, is solid but hasn't been of lately.  Love him though..  They all need to score!! Thats all that matters..

Sorry, I didn't realize you were paying his contract. No wonder you're so upset. :doh1:  The guy is a point a game player. He is close to his usual production and that's with playing most of the season with rookies and randoms on his other wing. He's not superman. No man crush, just truth.

Not everyone is going to have great years and if there is a season to have a bad year, its this shortened 48-game throwaway season where the draft is the best in 10 years.  There is a side of me that would be happier for the team in the long run if they have a lottery chance than sneaking into the playoffs only to lose in the first round.

Yes, let's look at the Richards, Bryzgalov, DiPietro, Luongo, Lecavelier and other contracts and see how they are doing over their length so far shall we?

honestly... Bobby Ryan would have been the man.. However I think his contract was to expire and he would have been a FA probably looking for 7 mil..

Luongo?? he score goals??? hahaha Actually probably would have been a great fit with us with Marty leaving soon.. and Richards?? The Rangers are dumb.. they traded Gaborik.. come on dude

Why didn't you go out and get Bobby Ryan then? You already said you're paying. If your players aren't getting the amount of production you want, then go get better ones with your money. Smh. If Kovy doesn't get hurt, he's probably hovering around 30th in points right now and our team almost certainly has at least a handful more points in the standings. Also, just a word to the wise, you just look stupid when your argument is backed up on the basis of name-calling.

You were talking about living up to contracts, not neccessarily scoring goals so Luongo fits.  There are a ton of top level players who are being overpaid these days in comparison to what they are producing.

 

The Rags may have traded Gaborik but they also opened up salary for themselves while getting decent players in return.  They have done plenty of dumb moves in the past but I wouldnt consider this as one.

Just basing it off of this thread, I am glad he wasnt around when the Devils lost game 6 in last year's finals.  I can only imagine the posts he would be making then lol.

I actually wasn't mad last year because we played our best and those games could have went either way... So my comment would have been, " we gave it our best"... And PWW you honestly are clueless.. As a contributing fan like yourself you sound silly making those comments saying" well why didn't you go get him then".  You sound retarded. I obviously am not in the position to go purchase a player for an organization that I don't even work for.  So enough out of you sir...

 

On a positive note, I say we blow next year too on purpose and go after Conor McDavid.. Kid is 15 in the OHL and has 70 points... who is with me???

Zajac still needs to prove he's a 1st line center to me. He had two good seasons and has yet to break 50 pts since.

That's exactly the point I was getting at. You're NOT in a position with the organization so who the hell are you to complain about how much a guy is making? You're a fan, you don't pay him. Who cares if you think he's "overpaid"? Would you rather not have him because of this hypothetical amount he "owes" you based on your own judgement. Right over your head man. Also, if you think the Rangers are dumb for getting much needed scoring depth and an upgrade on defense in exchange for an underperforming All-Star that they really didn't need, then you really have no grasp for hockey at all. But that's another argument entirely.

 

I stand by the fact that Kovy has been as good as usual this season and had he not gotten hurt, his points would've balanced out to where they ALWAYS are, a point per game.

Not sure why 1guy3cups went off the deep end with the gay comment and some horrific grammar, but honestly, Kovy needs to do better. For the money he gets, I want ppg pace or better. Anything less is a disappointment and he's been a RW since the beginning of last season, so that's no excuse. Though he has had sub par linemates this year.

That being said, his production isn't terrible, just not what I'd like.

im on the fence here...

 

i simply think that there's extremist people on both sides... on one hands you have the guys after a 10 games losing streak that will go "TRADE AWAY THE WHOLE TEAM, FIRE LOU, FIRE DEBOER, MOVE THE TEAM TO ALASKA!!!" and then you have the ones that will convinced themselves that it's simply a slump with no puck luck and that the team is fine (even though it may or not be)

 

and i dont know why if someone pointing out bad things that he should be called out for jumping the ship, the team has quite a few problems this year and pointing them out is indeed realistic sometimes.

 

When things go bad it's one thing to go crazy at the extreme but its another to close your eyes and denying it.

 

but i mean... it's a fact that our #1center is under performing, our PP sucks, we're not scoring much, our goaltending has been below average mostly, our Ds even though they are keeping the shots low will mostly have an immense brain fart leaving a guy wide open on a side for an open net... those are facts and its frustrating but obviously we know the guys have it in them they did it last year they just have to get on the same page.

to me Zajac is not a true #1 center. but i mean, it doesnt grow on trees and there's not even 30 real #1 center in the league, and some teams have 2 so...

I am in a position to complain buddy. And I think he is overpaid along with a lot of players on this team.. But listen, I dont know what I am talking about... We have Zubrus, Elias, Clarkson, Sullivan, Poni, Kostapolous, Zidliky, and Harold are all UFA and RFA are Josephson, Henrique, Lokti, Butler... So expect major changes... probably won't be overpaying a lot of them ...

Zajac has other strengths outside the points... He is a solid player in a slump.. PWW.. don't take my complaining as me not liking Kovy... Just saying he isn't dominating like he should...

That's the thing, #1 centers are pretty hard to come by in this league and the ones that have 1 or 2 do everything they can to keep them.  Zajac is pretty much the closest we got right now and I think overall he is a pretty damn good player.
