What do you expect? I'm really not surprpsied. They can all suck my cock. fvcking redneck dickbags.


Real nice. You and the other clowns over on devilsrule.com need to learn how to lose. The amount of vitriol is incredible. Heartbreaking loss? Yes. Sorry it didn't turn out the way you wanted. But instead of talking about how your team can come back it's "rednecks," "hick scum," etc etc. Just stop crying about it. We outplayed you guys most of the game and you can't even give us credit for it.

Read the rulebook...the last play wasn't interference. You honestly think there's some sort of grand consipracy against the Devils?

I don't care how much I get cursed at and flamed for this post, this needs to be said. Stop acting like a bunch of tools and focus on the next game. Being from the South does not mean I don't know as much about the game as you. I'm just as educated, if not more so, than you. So shut your mouth with the "redneck" crap. I don't come onto your board and talk about what a craphole North Jersey is because I KNOW IT'S A STEREOTYPE.

And I don't even like NASCAR.

Flame on. This isn't directed towards everyone on this board, just people who have said things like the guy above.

In Topic: Maurice: We need to do a better job on Parise

Parise is such a different player these last two years then he was in his rookie season. He reminds me a lot of Joe Sakic on how he is always moving around and finds those open pockets of space to make his plays. I think Maurice got it right by not so much shadowing him and focusing primarily on him, but rather taking away his options and giving him less time. Faster mobile defensemen are actually better suited for handling Parise then slow physical defensemen.


True, you need speed on defense. But our fast guys just are not all that physical at times. Plus, although they might have speed (Pitkanen), they don't always seem to know how to position themselves, or where the puck is going to be - can't do that against a guy like Parise. It's not so much a lack of physicality as a lack of awareness and the ability to do things like poke-check.

Always expect a Duke fan to be polite and respectful.. it's them baby-blue'rs who'd come on here to yell"u guyz are being getting all uh da callz dis series!!". So, did you go to Duke? Or just root for the hometown team.


I'm a senior at Duke, I'm graduating in a couple weeks.

And I agree with you about the UNC fans. They're our rivals for a reason. The people affilliated with the school are generally okay, but North Carolina is infested with "Wal-Mart" UNC fans that have no class whatsoever.

I can't imagine what its like to be a fan against the Devils in the playoffs. I'd be scared every time I saw Parise on the ice. His ability to find open ice and always be around rebounds is scary. He has the best instincts of any forward I've ever seen play for the Devils.


I'm a 'Canes fan, and honestly, Parise does scare me a good bit when he's on the ice. The problem that we're having, IMO, is that at least half of our defensive lineup each game consists of offensive defensemen, not close-checking shut-down types of guys. We have two D-men who are consistently good at that - Wallin and Gleason. The other guys were brought in primarily to be puckhandlers on the powerplay. I'm not saying they're awful at defense (though they have been at times this series), but a guy like Parise can easily exploit them. What the 'Canes need is a return to defensemen actually playing defense. I hope Coach Maurice worked with them on this during the day off.
