Serves him right for acting so unprofessional.
Of course everyone thinks what he said was true but just let your guys on the ice take care of it.

I have noticed how much of cry baby he has been lately and accusing other teams of playing dirty. Even jawed at our coach for that 1st period brawl about the line we started with, but when you watch that brawl one of their big guys end up on our smaller guys. Nice coaching cry baby.

I can't stand Tortorella, but I hope his players chip in on the fine. What he said needed to be said.

Devils with their 13th 100 point season. Only the bruins and flyers 19, wings 18 and the habs 16 have more.

Agree 100%

Tortorella is a tool, BUT

he said what needed to be said...just wish it came from someone who wasn't as whiney...would've had more impact.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

This is why it's so damn funny though :lol: In the space of less than a week two windbags blow their stack on the NHL's golden team.

"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

Considering Tom Renney got $10,000 for saying stuff about the Kings I'd assume something in-between....would I be any more angry about it? Definitely not, these kinda comments add intensity, fuel rivalries and make games BETTER...I'm all for them:

Tom Renney's attempted explanation of a penalty disparity between his Edmonton Oilers and the Los Angeles Kings cost him $10,000 on Tuesday. The NHL fined the coach for suggesting that referees were working against his team during Los Angeles' 2-0 win on Monday.

"Maybe you need Hollywood in the playoffs. I'm not sure," Renney told reporters after the game when asked about the gap.

Ranger fan coming in peace (hello again!):

First and foremost: Congratulations on very impressive 13th season with 100+ points. Incredible.

Secondly: As to the fine. I have no problems with Torts getting fined, per se. But I have problems with two things:

1 - The NHL supported Tort's comments by posting it on the official NHL twitter site. So to THEN fine him afterwards seems a bit off.

Secondly: Mario Lemieux wrote public letter threatening to sell the team, excoriating the league and got off scot-free for his tantrum. Sorry, but that doesn't sit right with me.

Is the NHL THAT hell bent on making their league so sterile like the WWE? I hate the Rangers and Torts is a pain but he's right. The Pens get pampered on by the league and everyone knows it. And they're actually one of the teams I like when the Devils aren't playing. Not hardcore like but just like.

Oh, and yeah, I hope someone runs over a Penguin in the playoffs to really see how the NHL reacts

It all starts at the top with Mario. He is the king of the whiners, was his whole career, and now he's passed the torch to Crosbitch and Malkin. Ownership always sets the tone for the culture of an organization imo. Mario, being the whiner he is, has created a culture in Pittsburgh where if the Penguins do it, its fine- if someone else does it- WAAAAAH. Pretty much Mario's career in a nutshell, as great a player as he was.
