Nice! What comes around goes around for Matt Cooke. He is a POS and got what he deserved. Too bad DiPietro does not know how to fight. Nice left hook by Johnson to KO DiPietro. DP seems like he is always getting hurt and can't stay healthy. It is almost the same punch Staal hit Prust with last night in the Penguins/Rangers game.


Cooke barely got bumped into by Rick, then turtled in the corner while others shoved. I think he "got what he deserved" is overstating it a bit. He "got what he deserved" when Evander Kane knocked him out cold last season.

Also, how is that anything like the Jordan Staal punch? Staal punched an unsuspecting players with gloves on... Johnson punched Dipietro with no gloves during a clean fight. Other than both being thrown with the left hand, I really see no similarities at all.

To the bolded. I'm not too sure Johnson's punch was similar to Staal's. Staal's punch was like a tap IMO, but Prust went down like a sack of $hit trying to draw a penalty (which he got) the funny thing about Prust's dive was that his head flipped in the same direction that Staal's "punch" came from :blink: THAT'S how we know he embellished Staal's "punch" :doh1: When someone gets clocked, the natural reaction is for your head to spin in the direction the punch is going to, not where the punch is coming from :rolleyes: look at a youtube highlight, you'll see his head goes the wrong way after the "punch".

Staal's hit reminds me of the way Bertuzzi hit Moore, not a powerful hit and certainly nowhere near enough to cause the reaction it got, then Moore dropped like a sack of $hit... and the rest is history.

Matt Cooke will get his one day, all cheapshots do in the end, see Moore,Steve.

I'm pretty sure Prust was turning his head in that direction before he got hit with the punch, which made the impact worse because he turned right into it. As for the Bertuzzi incident, Moore fell because he was obviously sucker punched and then Bertuzzi tripped over his own stick and fell forward into Moore, landing on top of 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.

He didn't play the full 60. Fleury played the last 16 seconds or so.


Yeah Marty lost a shutout in the late '90's during one of the games Lemaire randomly inserted Dunham in for a few seconds to get him 25 GP and hold off his free agency for a year :lol:

Vintage Lou finding a loophole. "Appearing in" and "Starting" are 2 completely different things that Dunham's lawyer/agent failed to realize. I felt terrible for Dunham when he had to put the mask on and skate out there for 20 seconds at the end of a game....

More like TKO by Johnson. It's not fair really because I believe DiPietro broke his hand when he went to take his mask off.
BTW it's not fair to say DiPo sucks when he's got a winning record against the Devils.

Falling on the ice like that, I am surprised DiPietro still has a functioning hip. :unsure:

I really wish he got his chance to fight Carcillo this year, when he was trying so hard to do so. Garth was probably hoping that it happened too, so that rediculous contract would be null and avoid upon Carcillo knocking Dipietro's head completely off his shoulders.

Eh I dont think Johnson is that tough of a guy either. Fleury was so happy. Di did get a smack up high on Cooke.

Pointless scuffle for both sides. :rolleyes:

half this board was in diapers when Corey Schwab was here ... in the mid ninties? :doh1: are you saying YOU were in diapers? :giggle:


A person who is old enough to make a comment like that -- It wouldn't even occur to them that anyone born in 1990 is even out of diapers yet. Well at least I didn't become that sort of condescending until I was over 30 and could actually notice a difference.
