You guys are so irritating. You all want to just fight and pontificate and be right. And as the trashy neighbor from my youth used to say: none of yus are right.

Whenever anyone is interested in ACTUAL hockey it's pretty much pedantic esoteric fenwick sh!t and you summarily discounting the relevance of any other train of thought.

Knock yerselves out I guess.


I never said I was right. I'm just giving my point of view.

I found this exchange between Cangialosi and Chico a bit perplexing...

CHICO: "Ya know, Steve, Darren Pang auditioned for the role of Frodo in those Lord Of The Rings movies."
CANGIALOSI: "Wow...I can't say I knew that, Chico."
CHICO: "He didn't get the part, though. They said he was still too short for the role."



AND -- did you hear Cangi stammer and his voice shake when he heard that? ... I swear he was called to read for the part too -- I'm sure of it in fact! I thought Chico was going to say he himself was up for Bilbo!

BTW -- Since I'll forget when board awards come around - props to Has -- despite the rather despondent wafting from positive to negative I think he's pretty well grounded in reality. :evil:
I like you're input dude and I feel free to argue with you too :P

AND DinLA seems to enjoy the same stuff I do about things right now. and clearly I feel free to argue with you as well :evil: :giggle:

I COMPLETELY understand.

That's why I say - you have to start watching more because you're point of view is improperly skewed. if it wasn't what people are writing would make more sense to you and your arguments for why they're wrong would be more logical Your applying logic of past teams flaws not with this new team. It's clear you aren't really sure what's going on - your guessing based on the past and that past has successfully been purged --- FINALLY :pray:

To argue with you right now is pointless -- it's not an exercise in futility - dont get me wrong. You're not a dunce AT ALL!!! you're not seeing the team for what it is now though Your opinions are just based on the wrong set of given circumstances :noclue:

lol, the extremists on both sides get me going though I do lean more towards the cynical pov with this team in more of a 'they have to prove they're good again' mindset. Just like politics I suppose, I lean toward one side of the aisle but their extremists are just as looney as the other side's.

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

People don't wanna see exciting games. People wanna see their teams win.

Great point; this pretty much sums up how most people think. Of course as a Devils fan I would obviously prefer them to win, but man oh man, I love a nail-biter of a game.

yeah i mean we lost a really tight game against the cup champion (not in their slump), i mean yes we came close but it would have been WAY WORST to lose like 7-2 or something like the CBJ usually are

then you know nothing is right, we battled hard and lost on their sh!tty goals

3 of the 4 Bruins goals were kinda flukey (not neccessarily Hedberg's fault, just in general). if there is a possitive, they hung in there against a team playing really well and almost pulled it out. What annoys me is the fact that it seems everytime they play Boston, the Devils make Shawn Thornton look like a freakin all-star for some reason, he always scores against us

I missed the first period, so I'm assuming that happened then? I did not see him in the game at all... I wish DeBoer would play him more to make more of an impact on the ice because we got outplayed in physicality all night and you could tell the Devils would rather avoid a check and try to get rid of the puck, rather than play the puck and make smart decisions and take the hit. Just sayin'.


Yeah it was in the first few minutes, IIRC. It was pretty much the best Devils play of the first period, so they had Cam for the intermission interview. He said that, right after the hit, Chara asked if he wanted to fight. :lol: Cam fights up weight classes, but damn would that have been a mismatch!

He and clarkson are very small as far as enforcers go, and as we've seen from the bruin/sabre game you still need one in the NHL. we may need a 6'5" MMA type guy

Looking back the devils did not do bad, but they were not great especially in that third period. Our team defense broke down and that is what killed us.

The player that did kinda piss me off in last nights game was Zubrus. I feel like he just mailed the game in and brought his linemates down.

Carter every game looks more and more like a waiver steal.

Greene ihas been our most consisent defenseman all around only mostly because he has been somewhat unnoticed. I still wonder when and if his offensive skills are ever going to break out again.

Like someone else said, I too feel more confident in moose than Marty now these days, but that first goal hurt.

I just hope henrique can keep his level up.

We miss Travis badly and I hope Kovy is back in tonight.

I am still undecided if I like deboer. I wanted Hitchcock back in the summer and while I do not think deboer is having easy practices as someone here posted, I am still clueless as why he only plays a three line game

Finally clarkson has been making me eat my words the last few weeks and honestly I love it.wish tedenby would follow suit sometime this season.
