#1126335 Why I'm not Bothered if We Lose the SCF

Posted by CarpathianForest on 30 May 2012 - 10:55 PM

If we lose the SCF I'll be disappointed but only for like 5 minutes. This is a great club that's only been in NJ for 30 years and has had a butt-ton of success. If you look at the past 30 years the Devils have won the most Stanley Cups behind Edmonton and Detroit. The Devils are also tied with the Red Wings for most cup appearances in the past 30 years. Our club is actually sitting a lost better historically than many other teams. Buffalo(SCF 0-2), Vancouver SCF(0-3), Rags(1 cup appearance in the past 30 years), Capitals (0-1), Sharks, Maple Leafs(Last cup win and appearance 1967). I mean look at LA even. They've been around for 45 years yet this is only their second Stanley Cup Final appearance. So while losing would be a disappointment, being 3 for 5 in the Stanley Cup is nothing to scoff at. I'll be okay raising an Eastern Conference Champions banner in the Rock.

#1100666 GDT: Devils (yay!) @ Rangers (boo!) - 3/19/2012

Posted by CarpathianForest on 19 March 2012 - 09:27 PM

A few things I came away with:

1. Lundquist is human. Get in close, high shots, get him moving.
2. Parise, Kovalchuk and Henrique have been replaced by pod people.
3. The Rangers will collapse if you get sustained pressure on them.

BTW, I don't think the Rangers match up well against either the Caps or Sens. Plus if the Rags end up in 4th, they will play Philly. Those two will beat the crap out of each other and Summer's Eve will probably be a major series sponsor.

It's pretty nice knowing that our D is deep enough that we can have this discussion.

#1095156 2 Toronto Businessmen Intersted in Partially Owning the Devils?

Posted by CarpathianForest on 27 February 2012 - 06:31 PM

Look on the bright side. If the Toronto guys buy a stake and keep it in NJ we'll probably get some more fans in Toronto, which is good because it's been a long time since that city has had a hockey team.

Someone just called me an idiot on NHL.com because I said it was a clear distinct kicking motion. I mean how am I an idiot? Obviously it would have been a goal if it wasn't a DKM.


I agree! Everyone knows you're an idiot in general, just not for that statement.

#1089002 Devils at Rangers, Tuesday Feb 7

Posted by CarpathianForest on 07 February 2012 - 10:44 PM

Highlight of the disallowed goal:

Tough call for the refs to make but kudos to getting this one right.

Lundqvist calling Brodeur a diver for this? :rolleyes: Hank needs to go take a look at the replay and stop talking out of his ass with that...let's see him deal with a 200 lb man flying into him while he's attempting to make a save and see if he falls over.


Trust me, Henrik falls over pretty easily for 200lb. men all the time.

#1086555 Devils Sign Steve Bernier

Posted by CarpathianForest on 30 January 2012 - 08:38 PM

Lets hope Tedenby will be ready for the 3rd line after 30 games in AHL to get his confidence back.

Parise-Henrique-Kovalchuk
Sykora-Elias-Zubrus
Tedenby-Zajac-Clarkson
Ponikarovsky-Josefson-Bernier

That is a playoff group up front.


Why are you putting Ponikarovsky in a 4th line role and Tedenby in a 3rd line role?

Stafford is a RW so he'd be a plus. Pominville is probably not in the mix of Sabres.

The only decent and needed D Man from Montreal would be Hall Gill.

Visnovksy from the Ducks perhaps. But the Ducks have been doing better as of late and they're probably in wait and see mode.

TB. Brewer, Kubina, Gilroy, Ohlund
