Hell of a game!! And why any Devils fan was rooting for LA is beyond me. With that said, hats off to the Hawks. Well done.

Couldn't agree more.....not a true Devils fan maybe ?

I don't get why any fan dislikes LA. If you are tired of them sure, but THEM beating the Devils in the finals was irrelevant to me. Only thing that mattered was the Devils losing. Besides, there wasn't one bit of hostility between the teams or the fans during the finals. It was pretty ho-hum. I respected LA for taking care of business. 

 

I'm happy the Blackhawks won, but it has nothing to do with the 2012 Finals.

I hold nothing against LA. They played a great series against us. I was rooting for Chicago either way though. The final should be great. I'll be pulling for Chicago again but I think Boston might be too physical for them.

Sorry to disagree,but most Devils fans would tell you they hate the Rangers,Canes,Flyers and Kings....Maybe you should start a thread asking for their opinions...I think you'll see I'm spot on.

I kept on saying it, too many Devil fans hate the Kings for dumb reasons. Sounds like a bunch of sore losers. I do not mind their team at all, they were clearly better in the Cup and I do like a bunch of their players, Quick Voynov Williams Richards etc. You guys make them relevant by complaining about their twitter or their weird fans. Of course they will have weird bandwagon fans who know nothing about hockey in LA LA land. They have no impact on my life or view on hockey whatsoever so who gives a hoot about them. I am glad that the Hawks won but wouldn't have cared if the Kings won.

One is not a true Devil fan because they don't hate the Kings?? Give me a break, I guess I should start hating Colorado too...

For me it has more to do with Jeff Carter. I have disliked Carter ever since he nearly decapitated Anssi Salmela and while I agree he's a great player I'm glad his team lost. And yes, since they beat us last year quite handedly I was rooting against them. Also, their stupid fans irritated me by chanting "Marty" after it was clear we were losing Game 6.

That's my .02 cents.

Seems like some people (not naming anyone) are more interested in being obsessed with the Rangers and now the Kings more than worrying about their own team. It gets worse every single year.

Lol, funny you say this now after questioning some fans loyalty over a dumb team like the Kings.  Whose loyalty should be questioned? The fan who is obsessed about wanting the Kings to lose, or the one who couldn't care less about them?? Easy answer.

 

Goodnight sir.

Goodnight sir.

Season ticket holder for 15 years,,,,was there in 95 to see them raise the first of 3 cups.Have boxes and boxes of Devils items from 1990-2005 that someday I'll pass down to my now grown children who are huge Devils fans like myself.

Where were you in 95?....Right....1st grade. I will forever hate the Rangers and their fans.The Flyers,Canes and Kings are right behind them.....Sorry YOUR team lost tonight....Maybe next year the Kings can win the cup for you again.

Where was I? Doesn't matter because I do not have to prove my loyalty like you just had to do. I only asked a very general question and you took the bait. Goodnight again sir, keep on digging that hole deeper as I sleep.

Great for Johnny Oduya, hope he gets a ring, but I have no problem with either team winning.

 

All the d-bags have been eliminated in my opinion......good final this year

Your more of a fan then someone else in here because you've been in attendance to witness all three cup wins since 95' ( so you say).. well thats interesting don't think that makes you more of a fan then anyone just says how old you are. Your more of a fan then someone else because our team got beat by a better faster stronger more skilled LA team in the final last year so your arguing with someone because you now hate that team because they out played ours? Listen i don't hate LA for beating us clearly the better team won thats how it goes in sports, however i did not want to see them have success this year, and they were stopped. None of this makes you more of a fan then anyone else as far as you can know someone on an Internet forum. Just because your a season ticket holder doesn't make you more of a fan then zubie8 or anyone else congratulations you live close enough to the arena and have a work schedule that allows you to commit to going to 42 home games every year.. if i didn't live an hour from the arena id be a sth too doesn't mean your anymore of a fan then Iam i still went to 9 home games in this past half a season, i still watched every single game on tv.. i still go out and continue investing my money in devils memorabilia.. your no more of a fan then anyone else here so take it down a notch.

I used to not give one bit about the Western Conference - til we played the Kings and, yeah people can say what they want, but I don't like the way that series went down. It was like Hollywood finally had a chance to get a cup and they weren't going to miss out for anything, so it was like "people" made sure they got it in the end. That 5 min call toward the end of the last game was just the tip of the iceberg in bad calls that whole series...It was just nice to see the Kings on the losing end this time. Like with NBC so dumbfounded the Penguins could lose, they couldn't believe they got swept, let alone see players like Crosby perform sou lousy, they were like that with the Kings. The network is a network of frontrunners who pick a rising team and stick to them, and then are utterly shocked when "their pick" fails. Ever noticed we've never been their "pick"? (or should we even want to be?)
