#1217818 Larsson

Posted by third man in on 18 October 2013 - 02:04 PM

I just..... don't know............ why Harrold's still in? Am I losing my mind? Has he done something I missed? I've watched every second of every game.

 

I really can't figure it out anymore.  We're doing the same thing over and over again and thinking the results will be different, the definition of insanity. 

 

I'm not a Harrold fan, but I thought he was okay in the beginning of the year...not so much the past few games though.

#1145372 Rick Nash To NYR

Posted by third man in on 23 July 2012 - 03:20 PM

I found this interesting as well:

Plus/Minus
Kovalchuk, prior to being acquired by the Devils: -65 in 594 games
Nash, prior to be acquired by the Rangers: -71 in 674 games


Perhaps the Thrashers were better in their days with Kovalchuk than the Blue Jackets are/were, but all you heard about was how terrible Kovalchuk was defensively with his massive career negative.

Why is noone talking about Nash's pretty awful career +/- ?

#1138713 Devils re-sign Bryce Salvador

Posted by third man in on 03 July 2012 - 11:09 AM

You can't put a price on Leadership and hockey smarts. This was a very good signing.



I think just the opposite, he wants to show Zach that the keyparts of the Team that went to the finals will be back.

#1138098 Martin Brodeur - 2 years $9 million

Posted by third man in on 02 July 2012 - 12:02 PM

Waaay to much money and time, absolutely insane deal if you ask me.

Is nobody else pissed at Marty? I haven't seen that opinion offered yet.

If he really did live for this team and was so loyal then he would have taken a reasonable contract for what he was actually worth instead of getting money hungry when the team is in financial ruin.

Honestly if it weren't Marty, a 40 year old goalie with his current level of play would be hard pressed to get 2.5 million a year, especially for a 2 year deal. I think a one year 3 million dollar contract would be well beyond fair for Brodeur, and would imagine that's what he was being offered at first.

Hell, I'd rather have Michael Leighton at 900k a year for 2 years than Marty for 2 years @ 4.5m per year. They are both goalies that can get hot but generally aren't up to par and let in major softies.

Yes I respect everything hes done but he isn't doing them anymore and a 2 year deal weighs this team down further when his play hasn't warranted it.


And how much money did Brodeur leave on the table by negotiating his own deals and never testing FA all those years?

And Leighton over Brodeur? They don't belong in the same sentence.

I think you guys should jump to more conclusions.

#1088939 Devils at Rangers, Tuesday Feb 7

Posted by third man in on 07 February 2012 - 09:40 PM

The call against Gaborik was absolutely the correct call, there is no way those losers score unless he plows into Brodeur. And as someone mentioned earlier, where was the high stick when Tao got nailed in the face and the trip when Henrique was off to the races shorthanded?

No sympathy for them. 30 saves for Brodeur. Great game.


Apparently every Rangers fan has forgotten the rules regarding goaltender interference...had this been the other way around they'd be up in arms over anyone touching dear Henrik.

#1067493 GDT: Islanders @ NJ Devils 1PM 11/26/11

Posted by third man in on 26 November 2011 - 04:21 PM

Kovalchuk's passing skills? How about the entire team tonight, passing behind each other or to the skates. Thought Kovy had a good game besides that turn over, which was also a nice play by Grabner. Sick of our fans using him as the scapegoat for every game. And that was a real crap pass to Larsson on our first goal, right?
