i always assume he's pacing himself so it explains why he's not always hustling and playing hard but when you're used to watch guys like Zach wide open chasing guys trying to lift their stick, backchecking like crazy and skating in circles around guys and literally being hell to play against. And then you see Kovy coasting all the time... its a bit frustrating, Kovy is a guy who can change a game with a good pass or a one timer while standing but his lack of effort is hurting the team from time to time. Reeaaaaaalllllllly often you'll see a puck carrier skate around Kovy and he'll just coast after him knocking his gloves with his stick.
He's not a good in-zone defender. It stands out now because he's not doing anything 5 on 5. He's a transition defender. If he makes a good play around you or you make a mistake around him, you're fvcked.
I'm not worried about his defensive play, that's not what he's here to do, he's here to snipe rockets from the left side of the ice. But apparently only Bobby Butler can play LW with a right hand shot.
This is just plain embarrassing. The thing that has separated us from teams like Pittsburgh and Philadelphia is that we have always played the game with class. Up until this point I cant remember too many dives from devils players which I am happy about but this one was a doozy. This is exactly what Carcillo did against us in 2010. CARCILLO. There is no need for this in the sport, if I wanted to see something like this I could have went back and watched the 4/5 matchup from round 1. I appreciate the effort Bernier has put forth so far, and am extremely pleased with th overall performance of our fourth line but if he is going to do crap like that then I want him gone.
Only problem with your thesis is that he got hit in the helmet/visor with the stick and it was clear as day on one of the replays.
What are the chances a Nielsen family member goes to a viewing party? Sometimes I wonder if that whole thing is a big charade and it's like in Assassins creed where the TV is watching you, not the other way around.
Gloucester county is a pit. That joke NJ map that came out awhile back, the part that said "basically Alabama" or whatever, they forgot Gloucester county. Where most of the people talk with hick accents even though no one else within a couple hundred mile radius does.
oh yeah, and no matter what they tell you, it was built with state money. so that makes it even more hilarious.
only in Jersey can you build something that is 2/3rds subsidized by the state, that ends up having a powerless authority "owning" it, and then flip it for HUGE PROFITS!
lol. I guess it's small fry compared to Xanadu, a $200M ripoff instead of a $1B ripoff.
