  4. Rocky V falls into the “so bad it’s good” category. One of the most unintentionally funny movies ever.
  5. I hate watch 5 whenever it's on. It's the most corny sh!t ever. 'I didn't hear no bell'. GWD: 'TOMMY GUNN ONLY FIGHTS IN THE RING!' Rocky: 'My ring's outside'. I mean, it's hilarious. [emoji23] You're right on 'Rocky Balboa' though- THAT should've been Rocky 5 lol. It was much better than I thought it would be. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Well, Taxi Driver is one of my favorite films, and I think it’s a sin it lost to Rocky for best picture. So I’m biased.
  7. GDT: Devils vs Rocky’s Largest Fan Club - 20 Jan - 1pm Eastern

    Heh heh, as far as the Rocky movies go: I & II: Both were very good. II was a fine sequel. III: Would've have been less memorable if not for Mr. T's performance. He was so good with what he was initially given that he wound up getting more and more lines. Both fights would've been stopped much earlier than when they ended...Clubber Lang never would've been allowed to just prop up Rocky's head so that he could deliver a killer knockout punch in Fight #1, and in Fight #2, that second round where Rocky was knocked down twice, then miraculously acted as though he hadn't just been severely pummeled, never would've been completed...it would've been called at the second knockout. The whole Thunderlips sequence, while entertaining, was clearly thrown in to kill time. And of course, what was kind of funny (and gets overlooked) is that Apollo spends all of this time training Rocky to fight with a completely new (to Rocky) gameplan, and then Rocky suddenly decides "I'll just let Clubber hit me so many times that he'll exhaust himself, and then when he's so tired that he'll just stand there and let me throw haymakers, I'll win the fight." Entertaining film, but the series was clearly on its way to becoming a comic strip. IV: Watchable but downright silly, and in some ways lazy. Hey, killing off a major character worked as a plot point in III, let's use it again in IV. Adrian not being on board with Rocky fighting in II was a big part of the story, let's break that out one more time. And in what universe would a guy of Rocky's age, height, and weight stand even the slightest chance of holding his own again a specimen like Drago? Drago's insane reach advantage alone would render Rocky pretty much helpless...not to mention Drago's insane strength. All this being said...just like when III comes on, when IV comes on, more often than not I'll watch 'em...though Rocky's "If I can change, you can change" movie-ending speech will always induce cringes and choked-back vomit. V: Oh sweet Jesus. This one is just... VI: Better than it had any right to be. I went into the theater expecting to laugh at how bad it would be, and it was pretty decent. Creed: Also a solid effort.
  8. Now I agree on the Philly fans, fvck them... But the original Rocky is one of my five favorite movies of all-time, and the whole series was excellent, with the exception of Rocky 5. Let's not pick on Rocky- lets pick on Philly for building a statue to a fictional character who doesn't actually exist. [emoji14] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 2 points, get er done. They owe the Flyers a quality performance after the horror show last Saturday. Hopefully, everyone is ok to play and Schneider gets better. Hynes said yesterday that he was waiting on a player or 2 to see how they are doing and will have the lineup for today announced soon. No matter, this team has that "next man up" mentality. Let's bank a win against a Metro division team, again. Today will end a 5 game stretch against Metro teams, the Devils are 2-1-1. Make it 3.
  10. Lol Rocky is overrated anyway. Wasn’t even the best film the year it came out. fvck Philly and their crazy fans. They’re already worried about all the hoopleheads rioting there tomorrow night if the Eagles win. Anyway, LGD

    Wish I could be there today, but I have a conflict. Let's go Devils.

    We needed one, and Shero got one in Sami. I think he's done for the year on D. Ian Cole is interesting? (good stay at home D) i would think they would want a D prospect in return?
  14. NJDevs '17-18 Fantasy Hockey

    The season rank tries to identify the most well rounded player even with the auxiliary stats we count like hits/blocks etc So Skinner is putting up some points, But +\- sucks and isn’t doing much on the power play or doing a lot of hitting/blocking.
  15. Apologies to @MadDog2020 as this shouldbehis thread following the win Thursday, but I’m awake way too early on a Saturday (especially for my time zone) Apparently Appleby has been recalled on emergency basis so Cory must be either feeling effects from Orpik’s stick (sh!t) or still battling whatever bug’s got him. I’m sure AG or Chris will post something about it soon, along with the updated projected lineups. LGD!!
  16. NJDevs '17-18 Fantasy Hockey

    So.. dumb question about player rankings. I was just looking over my team, and noticed that Jeff Skinner is ranked a staggeringly bad 403 for the season as of this posting. Yet I'm looking at his stats, and they're not... terrible. Is it the -20 that pushes his ranking so far down? I'm looking at players ranked around him and they're legit terrible.

    Signing him to that extension was a win now move. They have no realised they're not in win now territory. Keeping him makes no sense unless you think you can contend in the next two seasons. People point to Lundqvist for longevity etc, but I don't think Price is going to be that guy. His body looks like it's breaking down fast. Now, soon his contract might be basically untradeable all by itself, but that's another matter.
  18. What would you trade for Taylor Hall?

    When Bob Murphy used to do his postgame commentary on the radio after Mets games, he used to call it a "Happy Recap". That's why I wrote it. Not to provide any kind of commentary re: the emotional state of your recaps, or to imply that you're some kind of apologist. Like I said in another thread, if anything I find your constant criticisms of the coaching staff to be over-the-top and unfair. But no more debates...there's a reason why no one really bothers with responding to your recaps (except to point out how awkward they can be), and this exchange is why. Semantics and other nonsense.

    As someone who hates the offsides challenge, I still haven’t seen a clear angle where the Habs 3rd goal was onsides and don’t understand why Trotz didn’t challenge it
  20. What would you trade for Taylor Hall?

    That's not true. A handful of us were shocked that Larsson was gone, and quite upset by the fact, but few saw it as objectively even. Hall needed a change of scenery. Larsson was becoming a franchise player here. He absolutely did not need a change of scenery. He wasn't an all star out of the gate and had a few rough patches early, but he'd established himself as a top pairing NHLer when he was sent to Edmonton.

    I do? Damn I suck if true
  22. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    If the goal is to tank, then by all means dump Price for whatever you can get. Bergevin might as well pack his bags now if that’s what ownership wants. Point is though, there are maybe four teams at most that have the need and the cap space for someone like Price, and that’s probably an overestimate. There’s a reason why there’s been only one goalie in the past ten years that’s brought back a good haul in a trade, and he plays for us.
  23. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    if you want to rebuild. I'm not sure why you'd keep a goalie with an history of injuries, costing you 10.5m per season... Also if you're a goalie getting paid 10.5m... why would you want to be part of a rebuild?
