Not the worst one I have heard this year from Chico.

It was my favorite. Another this year from Chico I loved was his comments on the Islanders line change and his trying to handle race and nationality vs. Montreal. The paradox about Chico is that he has good insights, but shares them in the most nervous,incoherent and senile manner possible. Sometimes it feels like they just brought a fan on to talk.

Salvador got absolutely abused by Tavares, a quick inside head fake and goodbye. Meanwhile, Larsson once again had no problems with Grabners speed, he gets his long arm in there and bodies him wide.


Dude, somebody put the puck right through Adam's skates and walked right on by him. He has a LONG way to go. However, playing at the highest level will develop him, I just don't know what the cost may be.

That was a brutal play, he stuck of his hip to try and hipcheck the guy and didn't even get a piece of him. Horrid plays by Larsson are sometimes just forgiven though, it's a function of people wanting him to be great already. I still think he's the 7th best defenseman on the team(which doesn't make him bad).

Also, no goal on the play makes it easy to overlook or forget, another reason why it can be hard to accurately judge a performance, even though we all watched it. A kind of bad play leading to a goal influences our opinion much more heavily than a horrific play that leads to no goal.

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.

Whatever Larsson did, it can't be as bad as giving Grabner that SH breakaway. Wonder how many times it's gonna take before Kovy notices who #40 is, and not to put the puck near him.

We've got to be on double digits at this point. Luckily the guy can't finish worth a damn.

The man would have 82 goals a year if he scored on every one. Its insane the amount of breakaways he gets.

stupid play by him, but that wasnt the point. I was majorly concernrd with him 1 vs 1 on the rush against NHL speedsters. he's done ok in that aspect. they dont come much faster than grabner and he's held his own, thats a fact.

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.

I agree with this, people tend to forget / ignore his bad plays cause they wan't him to be what he's supposed to be, but other than his great vision and outlet pass and good stick, i see a lot of holes in his  game that he'll have to work on to get where people want him to be.
