#1272844 Cammalleri - 5 years at $5M

Posted by Chuck the Duck on 06 July 2014 - 11:07 PM

Isn't this a thread about Mike Cammalleri?


You can title a thread whatever you want, but on this board it will always devolve into a debate about Marty being the worst goalie in the history of mankind or Lou having the game pass him by.

#1267619 So Apparently The Rumor Is Kovy Could Be Coming Back

Posted by Chuck the Duck on 09 June 2014 - 01:36 PM

All it took was me buying Dino a cup of coffee to get this rumor going. It sure got the board hopping during this insidiously long summer and Ranger playoff run. 

 

You overpaid.

#1265621 Confronting the Nightmare - UPDATE: NIGHTMARE OVER, KINGS WIN!

Posted by Chuck the Duck on 26 May 2014 - 09:11 PM

I was at grasshopper off the green in Morristown last night and watched the 3rd period and OT there. Place had a number of Rags fans watching the game, and a live Irish band playing. After the Rags won in OT, this slob Rags fan goes up to the lead singer of the band and asks him to play a "rangers song." The singer tells him that he doesn't know one, and hates the Rags. He also told the little puke that this is NJ, and offered to play Hells Bells. When the guy looked at him all puzzled, he says "let's go devils" in a thick Irish accent.

I bought the singer a pint cause that little exchange totally made my night.

People have made a similar point already, but in terms of overall franchise success, the Rangers are basically the equivalent of the Mets. If Met fans were as arrogant about their team and other teams as Ranger fans . . . well you get the idea.

Or for whatever reason, it reminds me of Yankee fans that bring "We Believe" signs to games. Like "we believe" that outspending everyone for over a decade will eventually get us a World Series or two.


Or 5. Go Yankees!

#1262024 Martin St. Louis is a finalist for the Lady Byng

Posted by Chuck the Duck on 22 April 2014 - 02:01 PM

The Lady Byng standards and I quote "player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability"

 

I think whining your way out of town from a place that adored you isn't very sportsmanlike

 

What you're forgetting is that he's a NY Ranger, which means anything he did in his career previously pales in comparison to what he has done under the bright lights of Broadway, at the World's Most Famous Arena, because, as everyone knows, there's no place on Earth better than NYC.

#1261428 Lou speculation

Posted by Chuck the Duck on 16 April 2014 - 01:02 PM

I'm not worried about McGuire potentially taking over for Lou once he retires.  Pierre wouldn't be able to get Crosby's member out of his hand long enough to sign the contract making him GM here.

#1259463 In a Season of Problems, Brodeur was the Biggest

Posted by Chuck the Duck on 08 April 2014 - 01:17 PM

Quick question...is a "fanboy" the same thing as a "manchild?"  Just wondering...

 

Brodeur was not great this season, but he surely isn't the number 1 reason this team is going to miss the playoffs.  The fact that they can't score consistently and, as others have pointed out, have been shutout in over 12% of their games this season is the main problem here.  Should Cory have started more...sure.  I think most reasonable people would agree with that.  But too say that Marty "killed this season" and attempting to blame everything on him is ludicrous.

#1249210 [Now Dead]Devils, Wild Agree To Deal That Would Send Brodeur To Wild

Posted by Chuck the Duck on 04 March 2014 - 03:39 PM

And, btw, tix on stubhub for tonight's game just plummeted to $35.

 

That's great.  Speculation on Devils tix this week is worse than speculating on the NYSE during the great depression.

#1232756 Sat, Dec 14 Tampa Bay at New Jersey7:00 MSG+ (Snow Edition))

Posted by Chuck the Duck on 15 December 2013 - 09:25 AM

BTW, so far the Devils are 5-0-0 in games that are part of the weekend 13 game flex plan.  That's the one I have this year, and in those games they've outscored their opposition 17-1.


Time for you to upgrade to a full season plan.

#1229692 Devils recall Tim Sestito from Albany (AHL); put Adam Larsson on IR

Posted by Chuck the Duck on 01 December 2013 - 09:58 PM

It wouldn't be a season with the unnecessary Sestito call up.

#1223723 GDT: Devils at Flyers 7:00PM

Posted by Chuck the Duck on 08 November 2013 - 10:51 AM

Laviolette calling him the "best player in the world" or whatever a season or two ago was a colossal mistake.  I think he's going through a Kovalchuk-ian slump right now, where he's clearly squeezing the stick and thinking wayy too much out there.  Remember how bad Kovy was under MacLean right after signing the huge contract?  I think Giroux's going through the same thing right now.  He'll bounce back like Kovy did.  Giroux also fvcked up his finger/wrist/whatever in the offseason, that's probably causing him some issues right now as well.

 

If he could be acquired now while his value is on the low...I mean, it'd never happen, you never see the Devils and Flyers trading.  But it'd be something else.

 

 

This sum up Giroux perfectly...

#1216776 Devils getting rid of R&R part 2 as their goal song?

Posted by Chuck the Duck on 15 October 2013 - 02:10 PM

I would bet the house on the fact that Rock and Roll Part II is going to be the most suggested goal song they received for all of those time periods.

#1213049 Urbom claimed off waivers by Washington then by Devils from WSH

Posted by Chuck the Duck on 03 October 2013 - 03:11 PM

If we really want him then we can pick him up when he gets waived by the Caps...

 

Corrected.
