What's the difference between 7/1 and 8/29?    The most money he's going to get is going to be from the Devils, the system sees to this.

 

This too...so long as you offer Cory an eight-year deal (which there's no real reason not to assuming he doesn't nosedive the rest of the season) there's really no reason he wouldn't be signed barring getting bitten by the 'I want to go home' disease.

You think Elias, Stevens, and Brodeur are worse players than Parise and Niedermayer?  Okay then.

I believe Parise is a better player than Elias and Niedermayer was a better player than Stevens.  Brodeur never thought of going anywhere at any point hence the reason he didn't need an agent.

Yep, the only downside in this would have been if he turned out to not be as advertised when he's stretched out and plays more.   So far he seems better than advertised and he's snuffing Marty, which would have been the other concern.   He has the numbers he has WITH a rough patch in there.   He's really good.   He'll play alot down the stretch, he'll play the playoff games if there are any, and he'll have a stooge as a backup next year, whether it's Marty or Kinkaid or something.   I don't see what the panic is about.

If you think Neidermayer was a better player than Stevens, you started watching hockey around 11-12 years ago.   Parise also probably isn't better than Elias.

Interviews with players are up now on NHL.com and NJD.com,

 

Funny Jagr clip when asked if he took time to look around and take in the experience.

 

"Yeah, it looked like we all did in the second period."

 

It feels good to laugh again.

 

 

 

And Marty does say it's the worse ice he ever played on.... but it was in response to a later question about the condition of the ice before and after the delay... It wasn't -- Why did you suck today Marty? "Well it was because the ice was the worst I ever I played on!"

 

He does blame his play on bad luck and having no feel in the outdoor game, which will probably still be upsetting for a lot of people.

Scott Stevens had 908 points and nearly 2800 penalty minutes as well as being the most feared hitter in the game. He's head and shoulders above Nieds.

I think you're forgetting how good pre-2002 Scott Stevens was. And Parise, if he keeps going at this pace *may* end up being as good as Elias, but probably not. Elias' career high in points was higher during the dead puck era. He's played center too. He never played with anyone as good as Kovalchuk. It's arguable whether Parise's even a better player than him *now* and I'd argue he's not

 

edit: parise: 27 pts in 39 games (not star material there)

 

Elias: 27 points in 37 games going into today I assume? Just searched on ESPN. Elias all day err day

Parise is a class of player that is allowed to exist because of the rule changes.   If they didn't change the rules, you'd need to be John Leclair's size to play his style.   Without it, he's probably a checking winger who plays off transition.   A John Madden type.

This is really a stupid argument....

 

I look at Niedermayer and I watch him play with a Ken Daneyko for years long after Daneyko should have retired and I see a player who is virtually playing D without a partner... I see guy who holds every championship known to his sport. I see a guy who left a team and a system and put a new team on his back and carries them to a championship.  Like I said, this is a stupid argument they are both HOFer's.  If I was starting over with both of them I'd take Niedermayer.

Met him in Hoboken at City Bistro over the summer right before I moved to LA.  Dude is funny as hell and as random as hell in person in casual conversation.  First thing he says to me, "brooooooo, LAAAAAAAAA...good luck mannnnnn....I almost got divorced 6 times because of that (effing) place".  He was cool and I became a bigger fan after chatting with him that night...super approachable, laid back, kinda douchey but funny as hell.

Roenick was one of my most hated players growing up but I've completely changed my opinion on him now that he's on tv. I love his personality. Will be interesting to see if the NHL moves to Seattle and he ends up being a part of the front office.

He played with Colin White when Daneyko was shot, and Colin White was actually good for awhile, and even then, I was down in the defensive zone during Game 7 in Ottawa... he had a bad game.   Obviously yeah, they're both great players, but Stevens threw away a portion of his game for a reason and Neidermayer got to play his second chapter in a friendly environment.

The latter argument is flawed because Nieds was arguably not even the best defenseman on the Ducks.  He didn't carry mediocre teams to the Finals the way Pronger did TWICE.

that sounds pretty much exactly like you aren't aware of how good or what Stevens did or was pre-2000s

maybe a bigger pre-lockout Brian Gionta? There are outliers like St Louis, but either way, he wasn't putting up 96 points in 01 like Elias did

He carried them through the finals.  He was by far their best player in the playoffs.

Chris Pronger says hey how's it going. Remember the 06, 07 and '10 playoffs? He was involved

Yeah, but that's what I think Gionta was basically, a defensive transition winger.    If Parise's scored more than 5 goals in his career outside of the circles, he scored 2 or 3 of them recently.    He would have been beaten stupid.   St. Louis is dangerous anywhere on the rink

You can't look at Elias in this case in isolation of the A-Line.  Elias is a great player but the A-Line inflated his numbers some.

It's unfortunate that it was a blowout loss on national tv in a first ever event, but it's one loss. And it's on the entire team, not Marty or Salvador or Fayne or anyone individually, because clearly nobody's early had a good game today.

Positives to take for me:

- the defensive breakdowns that we saw constantly are rare for us, so I'm not worried about it.
- the power play continues to produce. It's a shame we couldn't draw a few more penalties late because I think we could have made it interesting, but if our power play continues to convert at this rate we will be in good shape.
- josefson looked halfway decent on the j├Ągr line, better than Boucher did. I hope to god Pete keeps him there for Tuesday
- broduer letting in 6 goals will further cement Cory as the starter. I hope and think he will get at least 20 of the final 29 games, probably more than that.

Hopefully they will be fired up on Tuesday because you know St. Louis will be after they were embarrassed by us last week.

And what do Parise's numbers look like without Zajac and Langs?   They went down.

I would argue the Parise was the driving force on that line and the others were hitch hikers.
