god could you picture elias in a rags jersey.. thats enough to ruin my day
I could picture just about anyone not named Martin Brodeur wearing a Rags jersey...just the way it is. Playing for that team appeals to a lot of hockey players, though I think more than a few have found out that playing there isn't necessarily all it's cracked up to be...that being said, even though the Rangers did nothing while Bobby Holik played for them, and even though his contract quickly became an albatross (though, like Gomez, he did about what should have been expected of him...Sather thinks paying good players superstar money will make them superstars), Holik has always maintained that he LOVED playing in NY, and with the Rangers. Go figure, but that seemed to be symptomatic of those Ranger teams...they all loved skating on Garden Ice and they all loved being well-paid, but they didn't seem to mind losing much.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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.
