Listen to this sped coming at me. Buddy, you got nothing. You're a bum. Not that it matters, but I got more cash and game than your whole damn hick town. Go to sleep in your 1991 Honda. You got to stay sharp to flip those burgers.

YAYYY finally he said something to bring out the banhammer.

BUT BEFORE YOU GO. I'd like to wish you the sincerest of "fvck you". I hope, in your miserable future, you continue to be this self-proclaimed genius. I hope you're so smart that you throw yourself off of a cliff, and I hope that when you hit the bottom you realize how stupid you actually are.

It's so easy being an internet tough guy. This is fun! Thanks for showing me! Lemme try. I'd be willing to bet you're a lonely mid-40's guy with a measely job and a right hand for a wife. Take your snot nosed sh!t faced little prick ass attitude and go fvck yourself.

I'm not going to read the rest of this thread because it'll probably be infuriating, but I feel the need to post something.

I don't care how this last game turned out, it doesn't change anything about how proud and impressed I am with this team. I'm scared that we're not going to be back there for awhile with all the uncertainty with Parise/Brodeur/ownership, which makes the loss tonight hurt, but...godDAMN it was a fun ride.

From exorcising the first-round demons to the clinic against Philly to shutting up Rangers fans with an epic overtime goal that gave us possibly my favorite action shot in Devils history:

To battling back and doubling the Kings loss total and being the only team that could defeat them on the road, this has been an incredible run. Let's not lose sight of that.

I love the character of this team. And as pissed as I was at Steve Bernier, and as much as he'll probably go down in Devils infamy as the scapegoat, you have to give him all the credit in the world for being in the locker room and answering every single question he was asked. Dude's still human, and if we all feel like sh!t right now, I can only imagine how he feels.

I hate that we don't get a parade, or some last celebration of one of the most enjoyable Devils teams in recent memory. I want to see them play one last time, be at the arena one last time, hang with all the friends I've made here and at the building one last time, and it sucks that that won't happen.

But god bless this team. Hell of a run.

And now that the need for superstition is over, can we PLEASE boot PhillyDev?


POD. Including (especially?) the last part.

I guess the more I look at the replay of the Bernier penalty, and the more I hear the analysts cover it, the more I believe it was the correct call. It's just too bad New Jersey gave up three goals during that five minutes. It's pretty bad actually.

Yea, I think it was the correct call on that particular play. The non-calls are what irk me in respect to the officiating. The team had the best penalty kill in the regular season and have been good in this series for the most part, but that 5 minutes just ruined us.

sh!t happens.

Lastone, I really couldn't have said it any better. Fantastic post. This team will absolutely go down as my favorite Devils team that didnt win a Cup for sure. I couldnt be any prouder of this group than I am right now. It was an amazing ride, and for that, I say to the boys: THANK YOU.

Lou should get some of the blame too. He mentored Dean Lombardi, and it came back to bite him in the ass.

So proud of this team! Sucks it ended the way it did with this game, but... To go from missing the playoffs to SCF is truly an accomplishment. Looking forward to next year!

Lou's had a hand in five Cups, between his three, and his two proteges (Burke and Deano) winning one each lol.

I've developed an intense hatred for the Kings. They're cheap, they whine, and they're a bunch of pansies. They can all get bent as far as I'm concerned. I have no respect for them and I hope they get thier sh!t pushed in hardcore next year. And I hope to God we get another shot to do it to them too.

Guys, I have so many observations from what was easily the most painful Devils game I have ever seen in person.

What I DO want to say quickly, is that I didn't bolt like some beaten pansy.

I stood proud with my NJ jersey on gave the Stanley Cup the respect it deserves as it was presented and passed around - and I kept the damn thing on the whole way to the parking lots despite the taunts. I think thats the way it should be.

People yelled "Devils suck", "F the Devils" - but it didn't matter to me - they were few in number.

Lastly I will say this - SOOO many LA Kings fans stopped me and said "Congrats on a great season", "Hell of a series", "Great game man", "You've got 3 cups - be proud", "Brodeur - what a great career - hold your head high". I was utterly impressed at how classy everyone was. Not one guy rushed me or did more than the expected trash talk. SO different than a NYR or PHI attitude. The kid next to me that I wanted to punch the whole game - put his hand on my shoulder at the game's end and said "You really do have a great franchise there - congrats on a great season". That type of respect changed my attitude in an instant.

I KNOW folks are pissed - and thats natural - so was I and I'm really not trying to be the "Devil's Advocate" - but I do want recount my experience.

The feed didn't do the crowd justice - firsthand - they did scream so loud that I had to block my ears.

Its OK to hate them - the rivalry just got MUCH deeper - but I can say I appreciated the respect, and think it could have been a lot worse with the fans.

But seriouslly - I'm spent.

We went further than I expected. We were a tired team that couldn't handle a 5 minute PK, simple as that. After the 5 minutes of PK and 3 goals against the game was over.

As far as next season I wish Marty would retire on a high from this season and play off run. But that's his choice along with the Devils. I hope there is a season next year starting in October, that will take compromise on the part of the NHL and the Players Association.

Lets have a good summer and hope the Devils improve as a team. It's going to be an interesting summer with Parise, Devils finances, Marty and the CBA.

Thanks for posting this...it's refreshing to hear.

Mad props to the Kings and their fans then. Enjoy that Cup!

They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

It is really unfortunate that the refs' noncall then call completely dictated the result of this game. Personally I think they got the Bernier call correct, it was the non-call that was the injustice. But even after the call, the Kings hammered it home 3 times.

It was a great and unexpected run. Two months ago we didn't think we'd be playing in June, sure you may have hoped for it but certainly didn't believe we would be. I am happy that they were able to dump both the Flyers and the overrated Rangers along the way. Hopefully all the extra games/sales/share of TV will help their finances. Also, Kovy get healthy for next years run! So thanks to the team (inc. Bernier even though you had a monumental mistake) and their coaches for a really entertaining spring.

I am really looking forward to Larsson, Henrique, a healthy Kovy, a re-signed Zach and another year of Marty (and maybe Wedgewood?). And to top it off it looks like we won't be wondering who the coach will be!!!!

This is exactly what I felt all last night and into today. No excuse for Bernier's hit, and he definitely deserved 5 minutes for it. However, it never should have gotten to that point because the Kings should have gotten a penalty on the Gionta hit 10 seconds earlier. That non-call really decided this game, along with the fact that the Devils were putrid on the PK and let the Kings run all over them.

Overall, it was a great season, and one we should be proud of. If you told me in September that we would get 102 points, make the playoffs, beat the Flyers and Rangers on the way to the SCF, but lose, I would have signed up for it in a heartbeat.
