I'll apologize if this has already been posted and I just didn't see it...

...but here's Fraser's explanation on why the goal should have counted:



Fraser's Explanation


Everyone is going to interpret this play differently. I've seen it split both ways among hockey commentators, and among hockey fans in general, and I'm sure it's the same with league officials. In my opinion, Gaborik did not do nearly enough to stop or avoid Brodeur, and that's why it is interference. Also, I disagree with Fraser that Volchenkov's stick tripped him up. His stick is a non-factor until after they had already started to fall, at which point it gets tangled up.

Either way, what's done is done. We've had MUCH more questionable game-deciding calls go against us and there wasn't 10% of the interest as there is in this one. The Rangers need to stop their whine-fest and move on with life.

Ah, I see. You're just as much of a thieving bastard as I am! Carry on.

I wanted to spread it like chlamydia. Its hilarious and the world needs to see it. :lol:

Fraser's Explanation



Wow. Fraser needs a life. Yea..cause the ref based his call on this explanation. No. The ref called goalie interference because he knew Gaborik was acting and 'pretended' to stop. He got caught. End of story. So sick of this sh!t. This definitely wouldn't be happening if the Devils supposedly were pushed into Lunquivst. It would be chalked up as just another win for the Rangers and would be the top headline on NHL.com

Thank Goodness the ref did get the call right, otherwise imagine how bad this would get. :rofl:

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

At least Fraser has a better explanation than simply 'he tried to stop'...but I still don't agree with that point of view. Even if you want to argue Volchenkov's stick got in Gaborik's skate, Gaborik was still skating way too fast to stop. I've been using this analogy - saying Gaborik was trying to stop is like saying I was trying to slam the brakes on my car doing 60 a few feet from a red light. It doesn't matter if you try to stop at that point, you're already going way too fast to avoid hitting the goalie, or running the red light.

Thank Goodness the ref did get the call right, otherwise imagine how bad this would get. :rofl:


It's because it happened to the Rangers. God forbid there was one tenth of the media attention on Zach's 'kicking' motion that cost us a tie against the Isles, that was at least debatable and probably wrong.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03
