#1185160 Elias about Lou's free agents approach

Posted by '7' on 10 April 2013 - 09:09 AM

I think we have to credit Vanderbeek going over Lou's head for Kovalchuk. And thank god he did.

I know it didn't really matter much, but Ike's swing in the top of the 9th inning with men on base was just embarrassing.

Always nice to walk into Philly and beat those bastards

#1177005 Cryptic info which came with next season's ticket info

Posted by '7' on 08 March 2013 - 06:54 PM

We need to find out if this has been printed in previous years and we just haven't noticed it...or is printed on all teams tickets...in case arena difficulties force a change of venue, not necessarily a winter classic.

#1171248 So what do you think about the shootout?

Posted by '7' on 15 February 2013 - 06:41 PM

It's extremely boring. Just a lame skills competition.


The hockey game ends in a tie. Then a whole new 1 on 1 sport is played for 3 minutes and a team is given an extra point for no reason.


A shootout result is in no way intertwined with the result of a hockey game. Absolutely nothing is decided as a result of a shootout winner

#1165454 Evan Roberts Is Awesome

When Rag fans use the attendance argument, you know things are becoming unglued. That's basically the only thing they had to use against us in the late 90's early 2000's. And even that argument can be poked full of holes. Remember when the Isles got a little better in the early 90's...you saw tons of Islander fans at the Garden. Remember 1993 when Turgeon eliminated the Rags. VERY AUDIBLE Islander fan reaction this idea that they have some sort of "tradition" (thinnest of the original 6 btw) and amazing fan base is simply untrue. They're not on the Leafs or Habs level. I'm betting Chicago and Detroit probably have a more knowledgeable core of die hards in the midwest. NYR is still too many elitist fair weather suits

The Devils fan base right now is about as loud, large, and passionate as it's ever been. And we did sell out opening night. So maybe they're starting to feel a bit threatened with the amount of noise our fan base is beginning to make. Maybe they feel encroached upon. But they still draw upon the same old tired arguments "Devils-Rainjizz in Jersey? bah haff da crowd is Rainja fanz!"

It hasn't been 1/2 Ranger fans since 1993.

#1154582 Rolling Stones set to rock The Rock (Dec. 13 and 15)

Posted by '7' on 17 October 2012 - 05:31 PM

Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor will likely be guest performers, so this is probably going to be as close to a "true" stones show as you can possibly be.

No no no NO.

Having two rocks on the blueline is similar to have a great 1-2 punch in the starting rotation. It's no guarantee that you'll win the WS, but it's pretty much a guarantee that you're going to be good every year. Look at us with Stevens-Nieds, look at the Rags winning their lone Cup with Zubov-Leetch, St Louis was very competitive with MacInnis-Pronger. The Avs won a cup with Blake-Bourque

Not saying Merrill and Larsson will be like any of those players...but we can't give either away and have to take the chance of both of them developing here. Because if both reach FULL potential, it's gonna be pretty fvckin good.

#1152282 2012 Jets Thread

Posted by '7' on 25 September 2012 - 11:41 AM

How dare you take shots at Eli. When the Jets have the 29th pass defense and are dead last in rushing and Sanchez carries the team on his own, then he will get some credit. Sanchez has been nothing but a product of a great defense that is now aging.

The last two years, Eli has carried the Giants on his own. Sanchez has the moxie of a mitey mite.

yea great job by Eli...he has one of the best lines in football, they've drafted him great receivers, and they've also had the benefit of 2 of the luckiest plays in super bowl history(as well as much easier roads to the super bowl than the jets). wonderful skillful performance as he lobbed up a dead duck that somehow stuck to tyrees helmet, and how plaxico for so many years bailed him out by catching his massive overthrows. He still throws some of the ugliest interceptions you'll ever see.

Posted by '7' on 26 June 2012 - 09:01 PM

Would love to have Larry around for at least 2 more years to assist in the development of Merrill and Larsson...but he's given this organization so much already. He's irreplaceable.

The only thing missing was a shot of Mark Messier standing there stone faced and dejected with the Rags brass as the Devils celebrated on the ice

where the hell was easter island noggin today anyway?

How great was it getting to hear Doc make the game winning call too.

Shame it wasn't with Chico, would've loved to hear his over the top exuberant reaction

#1123265 GDT: ECF Game 5 - NJ Devils @ NY Rangers

Posted by '7' on 23 May 2012 - 10:11 PM

Well we took the Rags best punch and survived...sure some luck was involved but you know what...

the rags 3rd goal was luck

the fact that blatant high stick on callahan went uncalled was luck. That still has me angry, even after the win.

so whatever, that's the way the cookie crumbles. I know what went on, Torts drilled it in them "everybody is saying you're done, tired etc" so after the initial 3-0 shock they rags played with renewed fire and intensity


we broke there fvcking hearts. You can bank on it. The rags won't play at this level again, and neither will the Devs.

#1120046 The Devils should just forfeit the rest of the series...

Posted by '7' on 14 May 2012 - 11:06 PM

I don't know what else to say

How can we tame the mighty Rangers "collapse in front of the sofa and pray for dear life" strategy?

The Devils looked like absolute sh!t outplaying and outhustling the Rags for 40+ minutes. Dominating along the boards, outmuscling the rags, and having crisper breakouts and carry ins into the offensive zone as the rags gasped for air as another devils forcheck intercepted a rags clear and re started the cycle.

clearly the Devils were intimitated by the "tradition" and the garden faithful who were so boisterously loud and threw the devils off their game, the tip tapping of the blackberrys rose to a defeaning roar by the 2nd period as the devils gazed at each other bewilderingly...legendary home grown rangers from years passed such as stephane quintal, valeri kamensky, and rem murray quietly rose a glass to the brilliant effort they saw on the ice today (drop to one knee, block shot, pray puck is cleared...missed block? maybe the guy behind me got it) the torch is passed and the rangers on ice mastery continues.

Should the Devils even show up for game 2?

game 1 flyers was "oh sh!t time"

I have never been so amused after a loss. This game was a joke through and through. I hope the Rag fans think this series is over I really do...
