I'll give Zach Parise some credit here. When bigmouth JP said that Zach would love to play for Tortorella during the 2012 ECF, Zach flipped a sh!t and immediately went to his dad to make sure that stuff was retracted.
Could you imagine, game 6 of the ECF and Parise is like "yea I could see myself playing for the Rags...and my wife really wants me in Minnesota. Pittsburgh? Maybe?
Devils are scratching and clawing for a playoff spot. They actually put the POS in goal tonight...Brodeur is thinking about playing in Montreal
Flyers only had to try 30% of the time since we pretty much only had 3-4 good shifts all night and maybe 4 scoring chances. They played this game with the urgency of pre season hockey. They should've been fresh and ready to go, instead they were apathetic and indifferent. Sands in the hourglass are getting short for Deboer.
I realize guys were out of the lineup. But Philly has guys out as well. No excuse. When the effort isn't there it's on the coach.
And it won't get easier tomorrow in Minnesota. Minnesota actually plays hard most of the game. Devils will likely lose 5-0 or something
Oh they definitely got marching orders...they wouldn't chant 'WE ARE...JERSEY!' on their own volition Kinda sad really, me and Zubie#8 were making puppet jokes about it.
The WE ARE....JERSEY stuff was cringe worthy. I know that's a slogan on the Devils intro video but it just sounds too contrived and a rip off of one of the college chants (is it We Are Penn State?) I don't see it ever becoming a thing.
Oh he's going to play somewhere else. Nobody leaves close to 80 mil on the table
fvck him. Kovy is a ++++ who knows no pride or honor. All the rumors were true, he wanted to stay in Russia the whole time. We were just in denial about it.
He also did every honest Russian NHL player a grave disservice. Now they're all going to be looked at like potential Kovalchuks who just high tail it at any moment.
Also, fvck the NHL. Another pointless lockout, the KHL rolls out the red carpet for a favorite son and surprise surprise...HE LIKES IT AND WANTS TO STAY. Now the league loses one of its more exciting and dynamic players.
