Greene was playing through an injury virtually all year and his broken foot wasnt diagnosed until December. I think a lot of us forgot what he brings

I don't want to start a new thread, but what do you guys think of giving gelinas a chance if Larsson can't go? He's been putting up great numbers in Albany and he can play pp

I like the idea of prospects getting a game or 2 in the pros while they're still developing. It gives them a better idea on how much faster the NHL game is and what they really need to work on to be effective in the NHL. Even with prospects you know aren't read for the NHL, I like the experience factor and 1 or 2 "bad" games from guys because they aren't good enough yet isn't going to kill you.

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.

I take back any good thing I said about Foster. I have never missed Rod Pelley so much in my life.

Yeah to call the officiating unfairly in our favor is ridiculous.. I was down by ice level for this one and everyone around me also saw like 5 no-calls that should have gone against them

Montreal fans are spoiled little bitches


There was a Montreal fan in front of me last night and he was saying the Habs had problems with this referee before, so clearly Cunneyworth and the Habs must have had the tinfoil hats on before the game started. Because to call this game biased in favor of us, especially after the first two periods was laughable. Finally there came a point, like 35-40 minutes in where it was as if the refs realized how one-sided it was getting and the calls started going our way. But they did miss a lot of crap by them throughout the game, worse than the contreversial Kovy hook on the final goal, which had nothing to do with the play.

"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

Meh...overall, I'd say their record is probably about 5-6 points better than it should be...this team has 19 regulation+overtime wins in 50 games. That's pretty bad. But I'm not turning those points away.

I understood what Lou was going for when he traded for Foster, and Larry Robinson is the kind of guy who can get something out of nothing or next-to-nothing (even Sheldon Brookbank was playing some decent hockey there for a while), but Foster just looks like a lost cause. He probably deserves to be benched over the weekend, but the Devils just don't have the bodies to replace him, especially if Larsson can't go.

Speaking of...

I really feel for this kid right now. This has clearly been a tough year for him on so many levels...he will learn from it, but I'm sure that there's a part of him that will be relieved when this rookie season is behind him.


Uh really? I'm thinking more around 10-12 points.

lol habs fans are unreal... here's a commentary on RDS on their blog or wtv

On the last Devils goal, the non-call on Kovalchuk was UNACCEPTABLE ... especially since the Devils got more PP than than Montreal...

The penalty was GROSS ... and it led to a goal ...

The NHL is a spit and baling wire league ... and anyway, arbitration always favored the Devils for 17 years now... imagine now that they are in big financial trouble ...


i can't believe someone sane could say that the arbitration always favored us lol especially not for 17 straight years wow

I think if the Bruins are 0-4 vs Carolina this year they aren't even a lock to get out of the first round..unless they play NJ.

lol yeah... but they are indeed the worst... who else in the league would call the cops on a player? or a manifestation in front of the arena cause one of their player got hit in the head? or manifestation cause they cant understand the coach? etc etc etc etc...

there's some pretty dumb fans... Vancouver, Winnipeg, New-York, Philly... etc etc... but Montreal is the worst
