In Topic: I really am beginning to hate our fans.

Its funny, I had totally forgotten how rabid and crazed I would get about this team....until I started putting those efforts in myself.....then I stumbled onto one of puckdaddy's Brodeur articles and read this quote:

 

“To be a Devils fan …especially one IN the area, by nature you pick up a certain hostility and a good bit of ‘f--k you’ attitude about things. All you hear all this time ‘your team has no fans,’ ‘your team doesn't belong here,’ ‘the Devils are a nice story, but we'd talk about it 100 times more on WFAN if it was the Rangers,’ ‘your team's boring style is ruining the sport,’ and all that kinda stuff. And it builds up.

 

“And yes, this team has been THE dominant franchise in the East the last 10 years, and maybe some of that is why you hear the RANGERS SUCK chant all game or why ‘we're classless to other team’s fans.’ Or your little goalie has to hear 19,040 yell SUCKS at him before each game. But being a Devils fan in this area almost REQUIRES that level of attitude, and you don't get it if you're not FROM here and have to live through the day to day stuff like that. Just try to understand that we DO, and it's part of that fighting spirit and the constant feeling of it's the world against US.”

 

You know who said this about 15 years ago?? .....I did .....maybe it's not changed as much as we thought it did after all..... heh....

 

What a great post. Thanks for sharing

In Topic: Is Phil Kessel the answer?

Wait...who did William used to be?

Actually people have come around to Kessel, which was not the case a few weeks ago. If you think our first round pick along with a top 6 forward prospect, a top 4 d prospect, and a cap dump does not get a deal down for Kessel you are clueless.

Kessel and their first round pick? Don't change the scenario here

The cowboys epitomized why you don't give big bucks to a running back with that 7 year Marion barber deal. Jerry has learned from his mistake. This is the first time I can honestly say I trust his judgement (because I trust that he will listen to the much smarter football minds influencing him)

That wasn't the point of his post.

Forum user mook belittled the idea that big trades involving a large amount of players do not occur.


Ha. No, just laughing with the rest of the forum at how stupid you are. Is that why you changed your name? Eventually, people stopped reading what you wrote so you made a new one?

Eh. I'd give AD money on a 2 year deal worth 15. I'd pay him before Murray to be honest-- yeah, last season was incredible. But he's been proven to injure easily.

As far as Lee goes, I trust him to play a healthy 16 as much as I trust Havlat to play a healthy 82. He's made of glass. Its a shame, because he's a freakishly talented player when healthy
