funny, you have no problem calling people out then and you respond with a condescending attitude. maybe all the way out there in la you wont feel the effects of it but you can bet if the nyr win the cup and with the uncertainty following the devils it'll do major damage. you think theres no one in the seats now? watch the nyr win the cup, parise leave and brodeur leave...oh and that pesky bankruptcy situation and ownership.
Parise and Brodeur may be done anyway after tomorrow's game.
I'm not trying to be condescending, its just the folks looking for every gremlin behind a net, board, or puck set by the league to propel NYR further into the spotlight - every NJ conspiracy.
If they are good enough to win - they should win - same as any other team. I don't think they are, and I would HATE to see it, but a lot of their players play with more urgency than what I've seen from some of ours over the past few playoff seasons.
If NJ can't get to RD 2 it will be of their own failure not some other franchise - they had the best matchup, a deep team that was on fire going in - but at some point you have to put it all together.
