"You've got more freedom to do wjhat you want on the ice (under new coach Kevin Dineen)," defenseman Dmitry Kulikov told the SunSentinel. "You feel if you make a mistake you can make up for it on the next shift.
"With Pete, it's one mistake and you're like shaking for the rest of the game."
umm...maybe because you weren't disciplined enough? That's his JOB. The coaches beat you down for your mistakes (so you learn and don't do it again), your team builds you back up.
it would make no sense to name parise captain and then trade him. right now it looks like the devils will be within striking distance of the playoffs, so i think a parise trade is very unlikely.
yeah, but he's UFA at the end of the season, we have to keep him from going somewhere else. Plenty of teams will be throwing money at him, Lou has to make him a Godfather-style deal to keep his thoughts here
Last night in the pregame one idiot said that he sees Zach going to Pittsburgh....could you imagine? I would just stop watching the NHL all together at that point. Parise, Crosby and Malkin. fvck that noise.
Yeah the talking heads on VS during the pregame almost unanimously proclaimed Parise was gone at the end of the season. It's like they love taunting Devils fans.
1. Allow players to have whatever number they want instead of forcing a system - who cares what number they have? Besides, Mogilny, Gilmour, Richer, all broke the rules anyway...
2. 3rd Jersey - and nothing slapped together like the Phailures - no different color nameplate that's just ugly, A black one with red shoulders might suffice. as far as a logo - maybe an actual Devil would be sweet, but would have to be done right. Maybe original logo patches on the shoulders, idk.
3. this would probably be controversial, seeing as how there's a 'workmanlike' attitude going on the Devils and this would seem to make it appear 'unprofessional' but, let them grow facial hair if they want, not just during the playoffs...it's like who cares as long as they don't turn into a dirtball like Hartnell...
Whether it happens or not, I don't personally care, but it would be nice to see things a little more relaxed when they take away his iron fist
Even though they may go Futurama one day and put Lou's head in a jar on a robot body he'll rule forever!
