Those articles villifying Quick seem a little overdramatic in my opinion.  He only played there as a freshman and maybe also as a sophomore depending on which of those articles has their facts straight.  Teammates and coaches from the high school team he played half or most of his high school hockey with were invited.  He only has one day with the Cup, he's not going to invite every single teammate or coach he's ever had.

God bless that man. I would've bought him one too if I was there. Morristown is Devils Country Rag bitch. You should know better.

You bet and I can proudly say I live there.

Rangers are a team of destiny.  It appears to be that way.

I just can't believe that with the system they play and the mish-mosh of "star" players they always try to build a team around. How it's working for them now I have no idea. Usually, they just rent a few big names and force them into playing like a team with the lesser guys, which eventually blows up in their faces. Gretzky, Messier, Leetch, the list goes on...they play them up so hard then retire their jersey.

 

If it must be Rangers/Kings, go Kings.

He had his entire childhood in Hamden.  He learned hockey in Hamden. Saying he spent one year playing for our high school is so fvcking lame and misleading.

 

Brian Leetch went to Old Avon so he's got this wonderful idea in his head that he's something special if he plays up his dumbass school. And I'd be OK if that were really all it was.

 

Fact is -- He has his tart wife,  nouveau fortune and about the ONLY thing which MAY lend him any real credibility in his neighborhood: his private schooling.  Now he thinks he's part of some club by an albeit thin thin thread not realizing he has no part of and never will.  So HA!  He's putting on airs and denying his true roots.  He's a stupid man barely out of his early 20s and has totally fvcked up values.  If you're going to make the transition do it fvcking RIGHT.   Honoring where you came from is that start to real quality.  He's endemic of the entire flash and trash taking over the global mindset.

I saw your post about Quick, Hamden and the Cup and decided to Google it to see what the fuss was about. Now I have a better understanding of your disdain for the guy.

I guess the least he could've done was invite his old coach to the party, yes?


Maybe the coach was an a$$hole to him

I guess he maybe could have done something for the town since that's where he got his start, but it seems like he'd rather enjoy his one day with the Cup with people he knows personally.  Not every player has some kind of celebration open to everyone in their hometown, I don't understand why Quick is being singled out here.  As for the coach, I still don't agree with him being upset after coaching Quick for one or two years.  Is he supposed to invite every coach he's ever had?

Oh absolutely -- dude can do whatever he wants and anyone who wants to can like him for that or any other reason. . 

 

I get to not like him and cast unfounded judgement.  :evil:

 

I dont even know him :giggle:  I don't know the coach either beyond Rainbow cleaners -- like, just the building  I dont even know if I ever even saw him in there  - haven't lived there in 26 years!

I've finally more or less gotten over 2012, a trouncing by the Kings on the Rangers would certainly help. The Kings are one hell of a team. They actually have a system, and their road to this Final was about as tough as you could ask it to be. I hope they win tonight, rest up, and get ready to embarrass the Rangers next round. I don't think the Habs win in 7, but they did more than I thought they were capable of last night and shook the Rangers up, made this series longer than it had to be, which is only a good thing. Who knows, maybe they pull it off in 7? One team already has this postseason haha..

 

 hope after tonight, the Kings are waiting on the other line for the Rangers to fly their tired bodies over for a rough series.

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.

Okay, so we venture on into the night. We play this carefully from here on out. We cannot go into the Finals guaranteeing ourselves that the Rangers will lose. I sure as hell hope it to death but this thread has helped me brace myself and ease into being ready for the worst.

 

Oh....and drinks all around on me. Brandy and scotch, put on your best suits men, we are going to watch this ship sink with pride damn it.

I still stand by my statement, it's not a nightmare until the Rags actually go up 1-0 in the Finals (if that actually happens)

 

It's tough now. But they haven't won no Stanley cup yet.

It's all setting up for them though...the Hawks and Kings are beating each other up and the Kings will probably go to the Finals with as many games played or even one more.  Or the Hawks drain themselves coming back from 3-1 and have zero rest while the Rags get five days off before Game 1 and another two off before Game 2.
