#1301582 World Cup of Hockey

Posted by Neb00rs on 21 January 2015 - 06:28 PM

Teams like Latvia and the like have absolutely no chance of winning. Next, aside from the most hardcore of hockey fans, who is going to want to watch games like Switzerland vs. Slovenia on a regular basis? Absolutely no one.




Whether or not you think its stupid to do this, you at least have to concede that the games would be far more interesting for casual fans. Also, as someone with a lot of exposure to people from these 'rest of the world' countries, they would absolutely get behind this team. As for the young guns, why the hell not. Seeing a team of U23 stars, whatever the protocol, is way better than watching Switzerland trap for 60 minutes hoping they can somehow get a 1-0 upset win.


I disagree. I love watching games between the small powers and I love watching the small powers try to beat the super powers through strategy and heart.

#1297827 Now Ryder & Clemmensen Have The Mumps

Posted by Neb00rs on 27 December 2014 - 12:22 PM

The following will be one of the most classless things i have ever uttered on this board:
Why can't it be Ryder who gets the mumps???? (Don't tell me you all weren't thinking it too)

Yeah...this is awkward for me. Not my fault though. Scientific studies show that if Ryder had averaged 16+ minutes of ice time per game, he wouldn't have contracted the mumps.

#1297809 Oates and Stevens both coaching. Lou overlord. Barr Out.

Posted by Neb00rs on 27 December 2014 - 11:52 AM

So is this like a tank strategy where Oates is in control and every blue moon when he actually comes up with a good idea Stevens knocks him out and concusses the thought out of his head? And then Lou is there to run practice until Oates regains consciousness?

Actually, I've never left where I currently am.  I've always been the realistic one.

#1296572 How do you feel about Seth Helgeson?

He would be elite if we traded Cory.

Posted by Neb00rs on 04 December 2014 - 09:59 PM

Is it bad that all I can think right now is "how are the Devils going to blow this lead?"


Clarkson hat trick?

#1292171 Gomez Has Arrived

Posted by Neb00rs on 01 December 2014 - 12:40 PM

To help our goal-scoring/injury issues, we signed a guy who has 6 goals in his last 123 games . Between Gomez, Zubrus, Clowe, Ryder, Havlat, Ruutu, and Salvador, we now have possibly the most washed up team in history.


The fan in me likes it though.  :smilegah:

#1290807 GDT: Devils at Calgary 10 PM

Posted by Neb00rs on 23 November 2014 - 01:00 AM

I think a big part of the reason that a lot of people on here are so angry this season is because some of the most popular posters on here have repeatedly offered untruths that the masses have followed:


for example:


"It's all Brodeur's fault, if Schneider starts just a few more games than last year, we are a lock for the playoffs"

"The Devils don't blow leads more than anyone else"

"The shootout failures are a complete anomaly"

#1273266 Significant FA's Remaining - Any Interest?

Posted by Neb00rs on 10 July 2014 - 01:40 AM

For 1 million I wouldn't have minded Heatley - I know people here disagree but to me, he's still only one year removed from a 50 point pace. He could put 50 up for the Ducks, who knows?

For those asking about Mike Cammalleri and No. 13. Lamoriello said. "We don't have a 13."

#1268779 Marty and the Queen Have a Drink

Posted by Neb00rs on 14 June 2014 - 08:27 PM

I think we all know that Lundqvist is a phenomenal goalie. The Lundqvist dissing is because he's a rival, his fans dubbed him "The King" in arrogant fashion, and many of them act like he is the greatest goaltender to play the game since Richter (who is one of my all time favorites). Our guy won 3 cups and 4 Vezina's and his fancy nickname is "Marty". Or fatso, although I never got how a 215lb 6'2 guy was considered fat. 


Anyway, as Devils fans we had a terrible season overall from top to bottom and I think this near-miss of the Rangers losing in the finals has earned us an excuse to celebrate SOMETHING. Sure it's petty and immature, but so is ripping on a 600-plus win goalie because of an affair he had over a decade ago.

#1268735 Marty and the Queen Have a Drink

Posted by Neb00rs on 14 June 2014 - 03:36 PM

No one said he wasn't a great goalie. But can we just have a thread where we rip on a hated rival who hasn't won sh!t in his career, be it his fault, not his fault, whatever? This isn't really a thread for serious debate/discussion. Its a thread to rip on a rival we can't stand.

This exactly. MD2020 on point as usual. It's the day after the Rags lost, we can celebrate for a bit, especially after all the a$$hole sh!t the do. We aren't going and throwing it in their faces.

I'm really tired of the pervasive elitist attitude around here that says "We actually shouldn't hate the Rangers but the rest of you are too dumb to understand why. Now I have to make you all understand that Lundqvist is a good goalie"

Defending the Rangers is fine to do on this board but don't come a marching into Rangers suck-type threads telling the rest of us we can't have fun.

Edit: If we are still making fun of Lundqvist for yesterday's goal in one year's time while the Devils are out of the playoffs then y'all will have a point and we will have become what we most feared: Ranger fans.

Here's to you Marian Gaborik. You were diseased, you escaped, you rehabilitated, and you became a champion.
