I realize, of course, that this is not how it is. But it's how it should be.


Which we have no control over...

Prediction: 1 game for Prusty. Rightfully deserved, in my opinion. No injury on the play (for some stupid reason this takes precedent. It should be the INTENT not the actual injury or not), no past history. I don't think he'll get any more.

Glad Volch is okay.

For the last 5 years while Lundqvist has been making the Devils his own personal fvcktoy, I've been begging and pleading for someone to put a knee in his fvcking ear. No one ever does. I have no idea why.


Because Devils don't play cheap hockey. He's doing nothing wrong, nothing stupid. People who run at Brodeur are weak untalented schmucks who don't deserve to win. Why should we ask anyone on the Devils to do the same?

Yep- 1 game for Prust.

Because I hate Lundqvist and I'm frustrated. :P

He's just confused. Being outraged is getting to be a bad habit with that guy - it was apt when he went nuts about the Pens, but if there;s no truth behind it he seems really weak.
That's why I really don't care for him. I think he knows hockey and he loves the game... but he just can't maintain control - when the game frustrates him and he sees his team getting outplayed he lashes out to the point of absurdity.

Because I hate Lundqvist and I'm frustrated. :P


Fair enough :evil:

All the NYR fans who are complaining of there being a conspiracy against them are completely brain dead. You must have gone full-retard if you think the league is not pleasuring themselves looking at a potential LA-NY SCF.

Seriously, they're starting with the conspiracy theories again because Prust got 1 game? Yeah, because the key to beating the Rangers is taking Brandon Prust out of the lineup. I mean, are you kidding me?

That, and the Devils 'finally' got the advantage in power plays in Game 3. Not that we did **** with it, but yeah I guess they expect to get more power plays every game when they get dominated for 40-50 minutes. **** them :rolleyes:

I assume there will be a Shanahan video about this suspension at some point? I still wonder if Prust's elbow to Marty was also a factor

We can all rest easy now knowing we won't have to face the juggernaut that is Brandon Prust next game.

:lol: But seriously, at this point, I'll take any help I can get. Besides, I'm looking forward to Torts head exploding when he's asked about it in the next presser.

Even better if it's part of the postgame after we WIN.

Torts defends this kind of crap, no surprise but yeah. Physical play is one thing but the Rangers go over the top a lot trying to get a rise out of their fans. If they can't do it legally, they'll play dirty to get it. It's all about ego on that team and has been for quite a while.

I want to say this definitely deserves a game because the intent was so obvious, but after the Weber incident, you never know.

The elbow when taken by itself warrants a 1-game vacation. When you compare the incident to other incidents and consider what Shanahan has done in the past, he should have just been sent to bed without any dessert.

All the NYR fans who are complaining of there being a conspiracy against them are completely brain dead. You must have gone full-retard if you think the league is not pleasuring themselves looking at a potential LA-NY SCF.

You complaining that the league wants LA-NYR in the finals is just as dumb as the Rangers fans whining about a conspiracy.

Not even close because it isn't dumb in the slightest. You mean to tell me Bettman would prefer to have the 'two best teams' - which very well could be NJ-PHO - than LA-NYR who are a good draw based on name alone?
