Let's hope it does not come to that and hopefully someone ends his career instead.

Not so long ago there was this young spunker in the NHL trying to make a name for himself by cheap-shotting star players. He was a career AHler who only got into the NHL because the team he was on the books for had been decimated by injuries and they needed bodies to fill out a roster. He cheap-shotted Martin St Louis and he elbowed Marcus Naslund in much the same way as Volchenkov's elbow on Boychuck but with far greater impact and intent.

This scrub never even got a 2 minute minor for elbowing Naslund (who missed 3 games due to concussion)and even after "review" by the NHL Colin Campbell refused to punish this upstart hotdog.

A teammate of Naslund took issue with the NHL and meted out his own justice and battered this young upstart to a pulp. The end result is that this young cheap-shotter no longer plays in the NHL, and that's a good thing for all of the 700 or so NHL players.


yes but you have to remember the repercussions of the on ice vigilante antics

I'm pretty sure Todd Bertuzzi would disagree with you. That stupid move by Bertuzzi will precede his reputation no matter how good he is or what he accomplishes in the NHL.

It may precede his reputation for others, it does not for me. My memories of him are on that fantastic line of Bertuzzi-Naslund-Morrisson. Besides, what difference does it make is Bertuzzi disagrees with me? AFAIC Moore needed to be punished, and punished he was, and rightly so.
IMO all cheap shot artists should be beaten to a pulp.

could NZT not derail every suspension thread into a discussion of why he thinks the bertuzzi play was a good thing for hockey, and why he roots for injuries? thanks.

I don't think Lemaire will be too happy with Anton when he gets back from his suspension. He wasn't happy when he took 3 penalties last night either.....

meanwhile lou silently sips his wild berry smoothie and gets down to his thai chicken salad @ the back of paneras....

cmon... show some life man!


To have the whole league so pissed off, Lou has got to be doing something besides jovially saying "Please Sir May I have another" - and then finding a way to win anyhow. AND because he had such a tough run the first half it's even more important not to start acting like the rest of the poorly run organizations, you know? We've gone too far down that slippery slope this season. I need old school iron-balls Lou back!

I think the best response from the Devils is nothing. You have to chalk it up to a lesson learned by Volchenkov. He's got to sit and feel shame. But I think it's also VERY important to use it to his benefit not to make him feel bad OR somehow cheated. It's not a positive repsonse to whine and shout. The positive response is to say what were you thinking? and How are we going to fix this? Bust his ass in practice too -- but in a fun way -- you know how sometimes when you were a kid your punishment of hard labor was sort of cool when you ended up producing something in the end?

Guy sweat just cannot smell that much like urine! and you all KNOW the boogers are there -- :yucky: you see the Polish hankie :o SORRY BRIAN!! Air hankie maneuver right on camera - no one can deny the spitting!

I don't mean to derail but I've never been to a hockey game live. I've always wondered like what the bench looks like and what the ice in front of the benches looks like from all the spitting and hawking. Does it freeze to the ice or when a player falls there does he have big spitwads on his jersey?
In addition how does each player know his gatorade bottle is his?

Cooke getting 4 games with Volchenkov getting 3 is a complete disgrace, but who would expect anything else from the clearly biased front office? If Cooke's hit had been on a Ranger, who knows how long he sits?


This is a discgrace! I agree, but even if Cooke's hit was on a Ranger The Brady Bunch of the league is with out Marsha and Cindy, so Bettmans Golden team is slipping. I think Cooke could have almost killed someone and only get a 4 gamer. This league is so corrupt! No one in the NHL front office wants to see the New Jersey Devils with a record comeback.
One more reason to show this team all the love they Deserve.

Looking Forward to Frdays game flying to NJ to see Mom for her Birthday and I am going to Fridays Game!
I am looking to also pick up a Jersey.. would hate to do it at the game I have a road Jersey and need a Home Jersey any suggestions on where to pick one up would be greatly appreciated..Thank you

Lets Go Devils!!!!!

Per TG:

"While he has not been involved in a supplemntal discipline incident previously and it is fortunate that his opponent returned to play in the game, Volchenkov delivered and illegal blow to the head."

I swear this league just throws darts at a board to determine the length of suspensions, just doesn't make any sense. I knew he was suspended when I saw it, but I thought 1 or 2 games.

We should make Free A-Train shirts
