I've been holding this back for a while but I'm just done.
You're a pathetic little nitwit. You comment 40 times on every single thread with the most extreme absurd statements ever. When the Devils are on a 3 game win streak your world is shining and bright, you love the team and you love the fans and you're absurdly ridiculously overjoyed with every tidbit of Devils news. When they lose two in a row you're a whining little obnoxious piece of turd. You cry, bitch, moan, and yap your way about how much you hate the team on every thread. SHUT. THE. FVCK. UP. Please.
If you're embarrassed to be a Devils fan because of two losses in January, get the fvck out of this place. It's not for you. We're a forum for Devils fans, not bipolar dumb fvcking sons of bitches like yourself. CHEER for the team because you're a fvcking FAN. You're allowed to be critical, of course you are, but you have this obnoxious "mood of the day" that changes your posts completely and it's so old it makes my head spin. You wonder why 90% of the people on this forum either add you to ignore or roll their eyes when they see you post? TAKE SOME FVCKING NOTES, man! A 4-1 loss to the Flyers in January doesn't mean we're going to get knocked out of the first round of the playoffs.
Zajac and Greene returning won't help us? Our #1 Center and top-2 defenseman? Honestly you really are a fvcking moron.
If you're suicidal, go get help. If this is just an attention seeking drama whore schtick that you plan on doing forever, go get suicidal.
Ah...I've missed your posts...where the hell have you been?
“I’ve said from day one, when you ask this guy to play the type of minutes he plays, to handle the puck as much as he does and to create as much as we need him to create, you have to live with some mistakes. You know that going in. One thing with Kovy, the mistakes have never been from lack of effort or selfishness. As long as they’re honest mistakes, you live with them because of what you ask him to do.”
This pretty much needs to be read, re-read, and read again (for good measure) by some members of this board.
Kovalchuk has made me NOT want to watch Devils hockey. I'm okay with losing, but some of you people make me chuckle with "Kovy this.." and "Kovy that..." Please the guy does NOT bring anyone up the next level. Sure he attracts guys to him to mark him opening up fellow players, but that is NOT bringing them to the next level. When Gomez and Elias played with Marshall during the 2003 SCF run THEY brough Marshall to the next level (you can even ask him, he said to me they were the best linemates he played with). Those OT/GW goals he scored were no fluke. I don't see Kovalchuk making anyone around him better.
Did Manta make a new account to post with? This is..hilarious. I can't believe how anyone could take you seriously.
Clarkson hasn't transformed into a 30 goal scorer.
Show me a player in this league not named Crosby who could have Clarkson sniffing 30 goals. I hope you're exaggerating intentionally to make your point.
Tedenby...I won't even go there.
Has Kovalchuk played on a line with Teddy consistently at any point this year?
I'm sorry, is his mere presence supposed to help young players develop? Because clearly Teddy's struggles are a result of Kovalchuk. Not coaching, not a typical sophomore slump or any of a thousand other reasons. Definitely Kovalchuk. And NOT blaming Kovalchuk is clearly making excuses for him, right?
And Henrique has benefitted more from Parise than Kovalchuk.
Oh yeah? How so? Please, do elaborate. I'm curious to hear your factually based explanation as to why Henrique has definitely benefited more from Parise than Kovalchuk. I've got time.
Listen, I don't have a problem with people hating Kovalchuk. You wanna waste your time hating a player that, like it or not, is going to be with this team for the better part of the next 10-15 years, fine. But when people come up with these bullsh!t reasons to try and show how he's 'destroying Devils hockey' or some other garbage like that, I take issue.
This team pre-Kovalchuk was stagnant. Sure, the teams had regular season success, but they accomplished literally nothing in the playoffs. The Devils were due for a change - most likely a few down years, especially with the poor decisions by management (see: Lou's UFA signings since the lockout) and the relatively insignificant draft selections. I think it's coincidental that this team has struggled since Kovalchuk's arrival.
You think the Devils would be better off with Bergfors (How's Russia treating him?), Oduya's bloated contract, the guy who tried to kill someone in the CHL and a late 1st round pick?
'No of course not, but we could've spent our resources elsewhere and acquired someone better!'
Who? I'm sorry, what other superstar-caliber player was on the market? What other talent could we have acquired with the above package? Outside of the Crosby's and Zetterberg's (who weren't available) there isn't a player I would've wanted over Kovalchuk at that point for that package.
/rant. Man this forum pisses me off sometimes. It's the same recycled sh!t every single week in a different context.
