2 goals on 7 shots for the Queen.

Breakaways, granted, but still.

c'mon, guy came up big in Game 7 and played well enough to win last night.  He's not really a fraud.  Not that I ever mind seeing him lose...

Our fans can be pretty somnambulant too, but I agree, greatly overrated fanbase, always has been...lots of witless dummies in that crowd.

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?

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.

It sounded like an L.A. home game after that first goal. There was even a loud, mocking "Hillller, Hilller" chant -- exactly like the "Maaarty, Maaarty" chant that Rangers fans like do.

But Christie is only getting criticized in these types of threads because he is so vocal in his support of the Rangers. Are you saying that the only people that are bothered by it are those who are against him politically? I don't believe that to be true.

Christine Todd Whitman, another Republican, was very visible in her support of the Devils in all of her years in office and even afterward. I don't remember anyone ever asking her who she supported before there was a Devils team. It obviously couldn't have been the Devils.

Hell, we had people in these threads criticizing Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes for showing up at the Yankees Stadium game wearing Rangers jerseys.


I absolutely am saying the ones bothered by it are the ones who hate him politically or for whatever reason (usually the people who cry that he is a "bully")

Whitman piggy backed off that 95 team like any other politician would. Before she probably couldn't name more than 1 or 2 players on that team. She supported them for political reasons which to me is far more slimy than Christies continued support for the team he grew up supporting.

Well, I guess we will have to agree to disagree.

 

Like I said, we had people in here -- myself included -- annoyed at the Asbury Jukes for showing up to the Rangers-Devils Stadium Series game sporting Rangers jerseys. It just rubbed me the wrong way. I never had reason to dislike them before that.

 

I don't care what party's in charge in Trenton. In my mind, it's an embarrassment when the governor openly cheers for any N.J. team's biggest rivals.

 

In the least, like DJ Eco and bostondevil11 said earlier, if the governor (or any other high-profile Jersey guy/girl) absolutely, positively can't bring himself to switch his allegiance to Jersey teams, at least try and keep it a little more quiet that you're rooting against them -- especially when the teams reach the playoffs.

 

BTW, I don't know whether or not Whitman supported the Devs before becoming governor, but I know she still roots for them now. I met her after a Devs home game at the Rock a few years ago and got her to pose for a pic with me. I thought it was pretty cool that she was there and told her so.

Right, the ONLY reason they were even invited to perform in between periods was because it was supposed to be a New Jersey Devils home game and they are a Jersey band!

 

I can guarantee that had that been a Rangers home game, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes wouldn't have even been a blip on anyone's radar when it came time to pick musical acts.

I was bothered by Southside Johnny because they suck. Putting Rags jerseys on them was appropriate because they are simply a second rate embarrassment. I would have been embarrassed if they were wearing our jersey that day.

I could care less who Christie roots for. It would not affect my vote one bit, nor should it. I had a chance to talk hockey with him a few years ago and he's knowledgeable. He makes no apologies for being a Rags and Cowgirls fan, but gives the Devils their due and genuinely respects the way the organization is run and the success it has had. Not just your typical NY guido BS like "we're the best cause were NYC brah!"

Re: Southside Johnny ... point taken, LOL. No offense to their fans, but as a proud New Jerseyan, I gotta agree with you that it was a little embarrassing that the best the NHL could come up with to represent Jersey on a national stage was a band that hasn't been relevant since the late '70s... In fairness to the Jukes, though, I thought they got the crowd moving that day much moreso than the Jersey Boys, at least that's the way it looked on TV.

 

As for Christie, I sure as sh!t never meant to imply that his being a Rangers fan would affect my vote one way or another. That wasn't my point. Not in the slightest. I think it's great that he is a genuine sports fan and respects the Devils. But that being said, if he's really that knowledgeable about the franchise, he's gotta know how hard it has been for them to carve out a niche in this area, especially with their arena being a stone's throw away from Manhattan. It's been hard enough as it is trying to overcome all of these N.J. Rangers fan families passing the NYR torch from one generation to the next -- even after 30 years. If the guv really understood what the Devs and their fans have to put up with on a daily basis and if he cared about them at all, the least he could do is tone it down a notch with his public paeans to the Blueshirts.

Probably not too early...it's astounding but we could very well have the same final four teams as last year.  I don't remember that ever happening in the NHL.  Maybe in the NBA but I can't even think of an instance there off the top of my head.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03
