I agree there is no need for personal insults.


Then why are you so against a banhammer threat toward someone who called another poster a "retard"?

i think you got that the wrong way around, we deserve better than what we got from him.


Nope. If it's one guy, maybe you have a point. When its the whole team that tunes out the coach, it's a much bigger issue.

Langs was just the scapegoat.

"Retard" is actually a derogatory term. Retarded was used to define someone who had a mental disability. The it was taken out of it's context as a means of calling someone stupid. By it's very definition retarded implies that something is wrong with you. I'm not being PC, but being in the Special Education field I find it needless to use that term. Just my two cents.

If you're gonna keep calling a guy the team tried to trade in the summer and couldn't wait until the deadline to get rid of a scapegoat, I'm gonna keep updating my favorite meaningless stat:

The 2010-11 Devils With Jamie Langenbrunner
6-23-2 record, 53 GF (1.71 per game), 108 GA (3.48 per game)

The 2010-11 Devils Without Jamie Langenbrunner
7-6-1 record, 37 GF (2.64 per game), 32 GA (2.29 per game)

But when the main ringleader of the mutiny is the captain naturally it's going to lead to others acting in the same douchey way. And he sure wasn't doing anything this year under MacLean on or off the ice to help the cause.

And for whatever communication or system issues Lemaire had last year, the man's been coaching for almost two decades in the NHL with a Stanley Cup for this organization. If they can't respect him they're not going to respect anyone and you especially can't tolerate a captain pulling that crap with a HOF'er and long-time coach.

I have no hard feelings towards Jamie. I'll always hate that he had trouble getting excited for the playoffs last year, but judging by the Devils' performance, it's not like he was the only one...likely the only one to admit it publicly. Sucks that things ended the way they did over this past year, but sometimes they don't end pretty, and that goes for both "good" and "bad" people...Jamie doesn't strike me as a dick, but I've never met him. I don't have the luxury of knowing every last thing that went on with Jamie last season and this one. What was clear is that it was time to move on for both parties, and both have.

And so have I...if he does well in Dallas, good for him, if he doesn't, oh well. I'm not checking out what he's doing in Dallas on a game in/game out basis, especially now that the Devils are showing a little life. I have my good memories of him, and the knowledge that he had his most productive seasons here, so that's enough for me. The only thing related to Jamie that concerns me anymore is what the Devils do with the draft pick they acquired for him.

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.

Again, this is meaningless as other teams now see us as no threat so they play their back-ups and rest their starting goalies for competitive teams.

I am starting to think you would do this regardless these days.

Just like the other time this came up, you fail to address the fact that the Devils were brutal against backups while Jamie was here.

What does that have to do with the fact that he may have had a poor attitude and a negative effect on OUR team?

And we destroyed Roloson and beat Boucher with our own backup yesterday, so it ain't just about who the other team's playing.

What does that have to do with the fact that he may have had a poor attitude and a negative effect on OUR team?


Nothing. I kind of expect him to turn it around in Dallas as a player and he's not going to be as big of an influence as a leader over there, of course if he does pick up his play significantly it'll prove all the more that he was jaking it here.
