Wow, after just scanning through the last couple pages of this thread, it seems quite apparent to me that obvious troll is obvious. Why don't you guys just put him on ignore? It's literally one guy that's causing all this negative energy. Just stop feeding him.

#989134 Volchenkov Suspended for three games.

Posted by iamtheprodigy on 09 February 2011 - 10:20 PM

Well he didn't really deserve the match penalty he got cause Prust faked the fall big-time, the only thing that annoyed me about that is the NHL rescinded its 'automatic' suspension for a match penalty offense. Don't call it an automatic suspension if it isn't one.

It should be called "Automatic (unless the player is on a team we like)"

#988673 Brodeur out day to day with “non-operable sprain” of right knee, w

Ha ha - thanks for the great responses: go away, etc. I appreciate the willingness to engage in meaningful discourse.

You did not present your stance in a meaningful way, so it was dismissed. The Devils have lost in regulation once over the last dozen games, gained a bunch of ground in the East, and your response is "Time to start tanking!" You had to expect a negative reaction.

It also doesn't really make sense that you brought it up in this thread if the Brodeur injury has nothing to do with it, as you claim.

Take a step back from your anger or whatever emotion you have that dismisses the concept altogether and consider the following: As a result of the 3 maybe 4 points I made above regarding the Devil's current problems, the team is very close to the bottom of the league. Whether or not the draft contains a Crosby like talent, better picks increases your chance at better talent not only at the top end of the draft but throughout the remainder of the rounds. This team is not a contender for the cup. There, I said it. Sure the team can fight and scratch to make the 8 seed and bow out quickly or it can go the other way. The other way hopefully gets what young talent they do have a taste of the action at this level with meaningful ice time and improves their draft position dramatically. I personally would rather the team took a longer term approach instead of another first round exit.

And what, winning in the playoffs isn't even an option? It's lose in the first round or tank the season? As Tri said earlier, you can't know what's going to happen in the first round. At the start of the regular season the goal is to make the playoffs - not get a high draft pick. If you have a chance to make it in, you go for it.

You can make a case that it might be better in the long term, sure. Maybe it would, who knows. But you can't dismiss a playoff run as an option. It would take a miracle to get there but if we did, anything could happen.

Time to tank the season. I felt this way a month ago and strongly feel it now. Bring up the youngsters, give them full icetime. Sell off what you can. The draft has a great scorer and a great dman at the top. We should ensure that this franchise gets 1 of them and starts to restock the farm system with more depth.

Go away.

#979840 Devils Midseason Report Card: Team in midst of misery

Posted by iamtheprodigy on 12 January 2011 - 12:49 PM

Yes, they made a run and finished 10th overall in the conference. Missing the playoffs by a few points.

Thrashers record before trading Kovalchuk: 24-23-8, 56 points, point percentage of .509

Thrashers record after trading Kovalchuk: 11-11-5, 27 points, point percentage of .500

Quite a "run" they went on.

Sounds to me that your to uptight. Never the less, thanks for your opinion.

Not at all. I love comedy and Louis CK and the other stand-up videos were good. However, I don't see the humor in some idiot driving around calling random people "baby touchers" and "pieces of sh!t" over and over. I'm sorry, but it's very childish and stupid and not the least bit amusing.

Just out of curiosity, do you look at all the other posts or just mine? :rolleyes:

There are quite a few very un-funny posts in this thread but that video was so bad it just blew my mind that anyone could find it remotely amusing at all let alone call it "the greatest clips on youtube ever."
