#1069967 Gotta love Sherri Ross' honesty

Posted by Colin226 on 05 December 2011 - 05:35 PM

Well you pick a funny time to bring this up since they've had some of their best periods together since then, at least offensively.

But yeah, that experiment needs to end, because Kovy's proven that he's a mental midget that needs everything to be just right for him to succeed.


Yup, if there's one true thing ever said about the Atlanta Thrashers during his time there it's that everything was just right :doh1:

Over the last 4 games that line has 5 goals and 15 points.. By far our most productive line, yeah blow it up

Posted by Colin226 on 03 December 2011 - 10:32 PM

If he plays like this every night, you'll see 2 and 3 point games on the regular. The idea that this 'isn't enough' is ridiculous - he set up a ton of scoring chances tonight.


Yeah how many points does his line have in the last 4 or so games? They showed a graphic on it during the game.. To say he isn't doing enough is only because your expectations for him are unreasonable

#1069615 The Kovy Conundrum

Kovalchuk may be piling up the minuses, but I think he's playing some of his best hockey as a Devil right now. The guy I saw tonight is the guy that the Devils paid all that money for.


Totally agree Tri.. It's too bad some people can't see it

#1069607 GDT: Devils @ Winnipeg Jets

Posted by Colin226 on 03 December 2011 - 10:00 PM

My thoughts:

1. Any review involving us that goes to Toronto should automatically just be deemed anti-nj on the ice right away to just save everyone's time. Don't pretend you're objectively reviewing tape in toronto, NHL.

2. We lost this game because Kovalchuk couldn't handle a pass hedberg.

3. We didn't deserve to lose. Every one of winnipegs goals was bullsh!t. We keep losing from mistakes and bullsh!t. Frustrating.


1. Totally agree and I've always been against conspiracy crap (still am) but DAMN.. I mean they've even reinvented their own rules this season to fvck us on reviews.. It's becoming a sick joke

2. Totally wrong.. You can give up goals because of 1 player but you never lose a game because of 1 player.. Moose cannot handle the puck like Marty and needs to stop trying

3. Agreed.. We weren't pretty but the effort and chances were there

It's a rut.. You can't jump ship when this happens to every team every season.. Things always balance out and we will string a bunch together at some point

Yeah I understand being frustrated over Kovy but the scapegoating for the real issues by some is ridiculous and shows you either don't watch games or you don't know much about what you're seeing.. Our D is a major issue as well as 2 top centers being out and some bad breaks..

Learn from last season and don't overreact.. This team is underperforming now but things always even out in hockey during an 82 game season.. You have to look at the big picture and realize that cold streaks happen to every team every season

#1066545 GDT Devils at Panthers

Posted by Colin226 on 23 November 2011 - 12:46 AM

Kovy was horrible tonight outside of the first period. The guy just stands in one spot and watches Parise/Henrique hustle their asses off. Everyone in the building knows hes just waiting to get off a one timer from the top of the circle so why doesnt he just move around, get in on the forecheck, use his backhand, drive the net, etc...


Duhhh.. Kovy, if you really haven't noticed, is a slap shot scorer.. He can dangle extremely well too, but his slapper is elite.. That's why I think he and Zach shouldn't be on the same line - Kovy needs guys who can feed his shot consistently, and Zach needs guys to get pucks either on net so he can bang one home or get him a a breakaway pass

Both superstars with different ways of scoring, so don't get on him for that

Oh look.. Another article from our buddy The Post.. While I refuse to believe anything they say until a reliable source confirms, I would definitely be happy with a billionaire owning the team over a 400 - 600 millionaire that's for sure.

#1061858 Briere's Shootout Goal

Posted by Colin226 on 04 November 2011 - 08:07 PM

Interview with NHL VP Mike Murphy - He actually says something along the lines of "Sure, when you slow the replay down then you see it came to a stop, but you have to look at the play in real-time" It's at like 1:15


HOLY F***ING SH**!! So he's saying you have to look at replays in real-time?! WTF do we have replays for if we should only look at them in real time?? The damn ref on the ice is there looking at it in real time!! That's such a cop-out BS answer that I've lost all respect for replays.. The point is to get the damn call right!!

What I essentially got from this was "We did everything we could to ensure we had an excuse for giving the Flyers a chance.." Seriously, after the officials called a penalty on the Devils after every somewhat-physical play last night, coupled with the fact that we are continously screwed by replays (anyone recall the Clarkson "kick-in" against Ottawa last season that has been allowed at least 3 times since then against us) I really hate to say someone has it out for us but DAMN, the evidence is there

#1061854 Briere's Shootout Goal

Posted by Colin226 on 04 November 2011 - 07:42 PM

Yes, he did stop. But the puck didn't, so it's totally fine. Or something.


But I thought it did stop.. I see him skate up, then put his stick in front of the puck, pull it back about 3 or so inches, and continue on.. To have the puck move backwards even the smallest amount means it had to have stopped

********

Side note: I was at the game and their fans reactions were hysterical.. Not only were they chanting "A$$HOLE" at the refs who would eventually side with them, but they had NO IDEA why it was being reviewed.. I had to explain it to the guys around me but they didn't seem interested in "logic"

#1058958 Pronger

Posted by Colin226 on 24 October 2011 - 07:15 PM

“Let’s put it on my headstone that I won’t go to Newark for a preseason game,” Pronger said in what has to be the best line to come out of Flyers camp this month.


I tried looking for more quotes like this from Pronger but they aren't at the top of Google searches.. I know he's never missed an opportunity to bash the crap out of our team.. Should I take the high road on this one? Eh, I guess.. Will I? **** that

Right now the system is not working correctly. Very frustrating. Looks like another amateurish ,lame activity. Lots of kinks to work out.


It's working fine for me.. Check your lame computer :P

Posted by Colin226 on 23 January 2011 - 08:36 PM

He got 2 assists and a goal, so he is passing and others are taking shots.


+1


He's no longer taking the puck up ice by himself and trying to dangle 1 against 3.. He's saying "Screw my stats. Whatever helps the team is fine by me" so he's drawing the defense towards himself and then dishing it out to the open man.. Great thing is, if the defense backs off him to guard against the pass, he just rips it home
