Well, I've never seen an NHL coach get kicked out of a game before. Rooney has no class. Throwing the coach out when there's 16 seconds left? Seriously? Obviously just an ego move for him. I don't care what Deboer said, he didn't throw anything on the ice or try to attack Rooney, so let him stand behind the bench and vent for the rest of the game.
To clarify, I am NOT saying that the Devils lost because of Rooney. I'm just saying that he's a terrible referee with no common sense. I don't think he has a personal vendetta against the Devils, I just think his incompetence in two big games for our team makes it seem that way.
And yeah, that game sucked. Oh well. I believe that the Devils will be right back in the mix next year. (Cue the doom and gloomers telling me that it will take 5+ seasons to recover from the loss of Parise)
