#1123588 Read Zach's Lips on the Carter Goal

Posted by Pepperkorn on 24 May 2012 - 01:39 PM

What's interesting about this series is the Rangers are tired, physically and mentally - if they lose, it's that they shot their wad. The Devils are young and nervous - it's all mental. But they've come this far so past demons are dead. It's new territory and not at all predictable. Rags -- listening to tortorella talk, looking in his eyes... what I'm reading: These guys are done - they're fried and I have to find a way to motivate them out of this.
It's a shame he's so on top of it because I'd like to have him push too hard. He's a pretty sensitive coach even if he takes as heavy handed a tac as he can. He may well be able to get them going again - find the freshness. :angry: jerkwad.

What sucks, is no one, NO ONE knows what our guys are capable of... I don't. Physically and talent-wise, they can go the whole road no problem. But mentally I'm still not sure -- not because they're weak or tenuous -- it's just so NEW! There's always been a time where I knew the outcome -- I never know with these guys and I really love that!

This is sweet team in both senses of the word because what makes them, is the mix of guys. Star/scrub young/old - it's such a team, it's a little traumatic. You can't turn to an obvious core, so there is no gauging how it's all moving forward. But they have each other and that's just awesome.

Not now, dude. I mean, I'm sure there were subconscious things that occurred to make me switch. Like my brother and father are die-hard Ranger fans. My Dad is almost to a fault. Where I'll get mad and sometimes say things in the heat of frustration, he'll always support the team. He's a good fan.

I don't think so. Like I said, I totally respect the team, the organization, and the success that you've earned in your short span. But, I'm a pretty devoted Ranger fan. Sorry, brother! :evilcry:

You've explained it all before.

You said our rude fans caused you to switch -- you wrote that years ago. I didn't read this thread so I'm guessing you had to share again? Is it like confession for you? Why you turned to the dark side or something? And you get all defensive like we invited you in and then attacked you.

I hate the mealy mouthing insincere sh!t you spout. You try, you really do -- you even came back to visit once in a while thereafter to prove you weren't just coming to the board to get your jollies during the series. Sooo what do you want - you're just being a nice guy and we should all be nice to your well-meaning ribbing? NO... we have a cool board and you want to participate :rolleyes: whatever - but take your lumps and enjoy then -- don't expect to welcomes with open arms like you're some wonderful guy. Ya just make me wanna puke, having to read this same load of sh!t all OVER AGAIN. read the same pretentious piety? :puke: :puke: :puke: Do we have this to look forward too next season too?

Don't answer -- I really DO NOT enjoy your posting so I am putting you on ignore preemptively. Yeah, I really do just want to say my piece and have you STFU :evil: 'cause I REALLY care that makes you think I'm an a$$hole.... :doh1:

#1113611 My personal response to the Panthers

Posted by Pepperkorn on 28 April 2012 - 10:31 AM

We should seriously act like we've been here before, stop worrying about the Panthers and pretend like we have to face the Flyers now.

Dude is it exhausting being the arbiter of ALL things message board.

Seriously -- think about it BEFORE you hit Add Reply -- is it really necessary for YOU to post yet another chiding post to your fellow fans and message boarders? It's just such a bad habit you've got going on and you really are relentless with it...

#989289 Andrew Peters Retires

Posted by Pepperkorn on 10 February 2011 - 01:08 PM

No actually perspective is realizing some dudes just want to ridicule and bitch :evil: any positive take on the subject currently held up for ridicule is seen as a challenge to their internet message boarding superiority - not simply broader view of the same truth.

IN the broader perspective - Peters sucks in the NHL as the millionaire next door sucks on the Forbes top 100. Does my stating that bother you?

A negative opinion of Peters skill doesn't bother me - I simply ask people look through a broader lens. This is after all a retirement announcement not a Devils Acquire Peters for 5m for 5 where incredulity and outrage are more appropriate

#989209 Rooting Interests Thread

Posted by Pepperkorn on 10 February 2011 - 09:40 AM

What I sort of like about this position -- it's PERFECT training. EVERY game is critical/non-important so you play with full pressure but there is no deeper kicking yourself. The kicking of ones self is just so non-productive and so impossible to avoid.

Nothing and everything is riding on every game. It's like youth - this blind stupid faith trying to attain the unattainable. Everyone said I HAD to have a back up career - yes mine was art to the dismay of every teacher I had :noclue: When there's no safety net it's just more FUN! and you move forward in such a productive happy way.

This is hockey for me. this is what I love and what I seriously never thought I'd have the opportunity to enjoy as a Devils fan. I had it with the Islanders in the 70s... and now here it is and it's AWESOME! and Lemiare at the helm... I just love this stuff. Who knew this is what it would take to get them there. I always wondered... wow and Lou did it and I'm just happy and pray we dont' get a stupid owner who can't shift his sight with the times. This is a really revitalizing place and I'm psyched for Patty - he's in the perfect time zone for it all. Marty is sooo close! Just hang in there man! You can do it don't get frustrated or beleive your on any down swing! Just get a new fresh vision! Please hang on -- I want it for Marty so badly!!!! But of course not if it's just too much :P I know how it is ^_^

man I drifted in this post.. :lol:

#987208 Raising No. 27

It's sad how many people are still bitter about him taking less money to play with his brother. :rolleyes:

It's so sad how some people cannot accept that not everyone is a Neidermayer fan. Just because I have never agreed with anyone about Neids doesn't mean I'm bitter. I wish we still had all the posts since 2001 so you can see how often I wrote how much I disliked Neids while he was on the team.

His leaving confirmed my feelings and I stated I would eat all my words if he re-signed with the Devils.

I HATED the way he handles his role as Captain on this team. I just find his reticence INFURIATING! I find his heartfelt soul searching insincere - just procrastination, making sure no one KNOWS what a prick he is at heart.

She also kissed a girl and, apparently, liked it.

Katy Perry's okay in my book.

Of course, my book doesn't require hearing her very often.

Again -- you do not have a 7 year old daughter with a 7 year old cousin listening to YouTube California Girls over and over andoveranover :argh:

OK. Truthfully. Does anyone else think this is THE most awesome season? It's just beyond amazing. It's pretty neat to be able to say. " Nononono... The Devils aren't losing... This is EPIC. We are talking and I'm not kidding possibly THE worst season by any hockey team DEFINATELY the past 30. We may be talking 50. Or ALL TIME!

My sister completely appreciated it. It elicited an Alright! The likes only the loudest and rankest of farts could merit

I didn't want to move him at all. I did want him to snap out of it - but I understood always. Totally relate in lots of ways too.

I'm glad Lou did right by him in the end and hope it all turns out for the best. I just wish it hadn't been at such a big cost to the team. <_< I'd have said Fine fvck YOU THEN -- I'll tell your buddy you dicked him over Joey OK? <_< Byng this dyknotch.

Sorry Niewy25 - I gotta vent :evil:
