I guess if they got Gomer they might as well try Gio. Both are over priced but we will see how they do.

Pay homage to the INCREDIBLE scoring goalie!!!! :-)

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease


CRASHER's official list of high stick victims from this forum:
gionta182, devilsfan26 .... WHO'S NEXT??

2005 Fantasy Football League Champion... Bow to my Football knowledge !!!!!!

2003-04 NJDevs.com winner of the Masterton Award for Dedication to the Devils(still proud of that one !)

4, Four (!?!?) Time (2005-2008) NJDevs.com winner of the Whoever the damn Award for the funniest poster in the land is named after...(geesh... post pressure, but I seem ok with it!)
TWO TIME (2005, 2006) Award Winner and the man who can show Jeremy Roenick what a REAL loudmouth is all about.... hell this mouth roars SO loud, they retired the DAMN AWARD!!!! But how do you be emotional about an award for being most emotional when you're sharing it?

2008 NJDevs Stanley Cup Winner for best overall poster... where's my damn ring?

Good Luck in MTL Gionta. I'll miss some of those amazing goals he had like that backhand out of the air shot against PIT and that weird flip shot goal against PHI.

I'll never forget that time he skated in with the puck, and shot it from the blue line into the goalie's chest.

my favorite was watching devils vs. habs at miami mikes in east hanover with both Gionta's parents. Although we lost 3-1 Gio had the lone goal for the Devils. They even picked up our tab. Good luck in Montreal, Gio. Hope you do well.

LOL...

$5 million a season? Really? Gainey knows his goal totals have been declining every year, right?

I'll never forget that 48 goal season, though. That was incredible. Thanks Gio.

Wow, I love Gio as much as the next guy but this is beyond ridiculous. $25 million for a guy that's only broken 25 goals once in his career?! I guess Gainey and Sather are competing for the worst GM of the league award.

-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

At the going rates... I wish we found a way to keep Gio. Maybe 5M was bit high, but really, in comparison to the rest of the league, he just might be worth it. He is fast. He has great hands. He goes to the net. He has his heart in the game.... I really wish we could have kept him, and have no doubt he willl do VERY well in Montreal. Brian, all the best and good luck (unless you play NJ in the playoffs, then go to hell, better yet, let us send you there!).
