For starters I dew not have the time to find these articles and post them...perhaps someone else will...they are both from today's Star Ledger and are entitled - Lindros is rusty in return and Rangers waster OT point again...here are the snippets:

Regarding Lindros :I'm sure it was very emotional game for him , playing against the Flyers, and he wanted to get right into it," Holik said. "If we all tried as hard as he did, we'd all be in better shape.

"The Flyers elvevated their game in the third periond and in overtime, and we did not," Bobby Holik said. "We just need to settle everyone down, we seem to be a little too hyper."

"We're anxious to prevent something instead of trying to create something." Holik said. "We seem to try to prevent them from scoring and we try a little too hard. We have to let (the play) come to us in ouw own end."

Last but not least (I get a kick out of this):
"Is playing well going to get us in the playoffs, or is winning games going to get us in the playoffs?" Holik said. "We can't keep going, just playing well, but losing points like this."

Excuse me but did he not put a restraint on himself to talk only about himself???? Positive or negative has nothing to dew with it...in the past his slams of the Ranjuhs were right too ya know and slams are negative...Sather wanted this stuff to stay with the team not the media...Holik has no control with his mandibles :rofl:

I understand that he has broken his promise already (which was the point this posting), but all he said was standard Bobby Holik phrases.

But that's Bobby being Bobby. He's not being overly critical like he was last year with Trotts. Holik's play has led by example this year. He's become a leader for them.

Yeah, he's improved - instead of yammering once every six games, he's doing it once every twelve. :P

Call him a sell out if you want, but remember, the Devils were right there with a similar offer.

Yeah, a similar offer of less money for fewer years and no bonuses (that pay Holik in the event of a lockout)

I also noticed these quotes, because I think it was just yesterday or the day before that there was a huge article in the Ledger about how he had come to this profound personal decision not to talk about the team anymore. It seems so rediculous that he couldn't hold it in for a single game.

It's like a 4 year old that gets into a staring contest with you, you raise an eyebrow and they burst out laughing. Bobby Holik has the self control of a 4 year old.

I posted something about this a while back, but I read that his contract is in dispute with the league and its possible he will not be paid if there is a lockout, Kasparitis (spelling) too. Would be funny as all hell.

I thought the contract issues were settled in favor of Holik.

He was right with what he said about the Rangers

Why dew some people get so obsessed with Holik. Get over it he's gone.
The financial offer by the Devils wasn't the same or even close to Rangers offer. Get over that. He isn't coming back either so get over that.

Talk about whipping boy. Some of you need to grow up, move on and get past it.

If you want to bitch about a player try Gomez, he is on the Devils.

Maybe you should apply this advice to your Gomez obsession.

Hey NJDevsRock

Gomez is on the Devil's team in case you haven't noticed, unlike Holik.
Gomez is hurting the Devils in case you haven't noticed 7 out of 7 faceoffs he lost in a row against Ottawa unlike Holik. Forgot to post when put on 4th line he got the faceoff which resulted in score. Not bad 1 out of 8 that talent and quality.

Yeah, those 7 faceoffs he lost hurt us almost as much as the faceoff he won helped us.

Yes Gomez is on the team and Holik is not... Thank you CNN.... I did not know that Holik did better in faceoffs against ottawa... You must be a big Holik Fan... As for Gomez, I think he is a better play than you given him credit for...
