#1158698 Lockout 2012-2013 (Hockey's back!)

Posted by MadDog2020 on 12 December 2012 - 05:46 PM

Maybe but this is way too personal on both sides (as is usually the case with Bettman and the NHLPA). That's why I still think there's a chance it goes off the cliff entirely.

. The time has come for the rank and file to raise hell and put the last proposal to a vote. Enough. These guys have to make their voices heard, or Fehr and the negotiating committee are taking this off the cliff for the players. I invite you guys to read Matthew Barnaby's Twitter for a perspective on what happened 8 years ago and how he wish more guys spoke up. I hope some of the current players heed Barnaby's advice. It's the only way now, it seems.

#1148207 2012 Jets Thread

Posted by MadDog2020 on 20 August 2012 - 02:14 PM

With Tony Sapprano as OC, an average OL, another year of new receviers to adjust to, a questionable running game I would say your pretty much doomed. Your D will be drained by the fourth quarter.

Tannenbaum has set Sanchez up for failure for the second year in a row, but only now Sanchez will be fighting a war on two fronts: The opposition Defense and the knee jerk reation Jets "fans" calling for Tebow by half time. It is going to be a long painful season for the Jets.

As a Fins fan and a former victim of Tony Sparano's offensive ineptitude, I can pretty much guarantee Jet fans will want to kill Sparano by Halloween. He's more conservative than Rush Limbaugh. And stupid. Conservative and stupid is no way to go through life.

#1148015 The Hockey News predictions for the year

Posted by MadDog2020 on 18 August 2012 - 11:10 AM

I like how they stand by their assertion that our defense is "perilously thin" after literally this exact same group got us to the finals last year. But oh, don't forget folks that this team was "one goal away from being eliminated in round 1". What a joke.

That last line was the dumbest thing I've ever read. The lengths to which these morons will go to try and back up their moronic/wishful thinking opinions about the Devils long-rumored demise are hilarious. My message to all hockey media/fans of opposing and inferior organizations: We're the Devils. And we'll be there to piss in your beer once again, motherfvckers. So drink up and enjoy the taste.

#1144439 Lou featured in new book on NHL GMs

Posted by MadDog2020 on 19 July 2012 - 07:37 AM


OK, I'll give it a shot for you.


"Status Quo"
"I am not going to make a decision just to make a decision"
"Lower body injury"
"We'll have to see how it goes"
"Nothing new"
"I haven't spoken with him"
"If we can get better, we will"
"Marty will be a Devil as long as he wants to be a Devil"
"I'd rather just let things be and wait til tomorrow"

"I have been speaking with him every day"
"Time for plan B"

Okay, I think that about covers it, anyone got any more gems to glean enlightenment from? :evil:

"Don't worry about my cap". :P

#1141835 on November 11, when Minnesota comes to town, what do we do to Zach?

Glad you cooled off.

I hold grudges. Big ones. And I will never apologize for it.

Posted by MadDog2020 on 06 July 2012 - 10:22 PM

Was reading the HF Devils board, and between us over here and a lot of fans over there, there seems to be a consensus that November 11, we send Zach Parise a message he never forgets. I'm all in for that. Be it tossing your Parise shirt or jersey on the ice, tons of clever and insulting signs, 'F you Zach' chants- we must make it a night he never forgets. So its only loud when we play the Rangers, eh Zach? You're about to get a rude awakening bud. I want him to leave Newark crying on his BFF's shoulder that night. Bottom line, while booing is great, we need to take it a step further, in light of his blatant boldfaced lying to EVERYONE- not just the fans- his teammates and Lou as well. This must be, unquestionably, the most hostile and vile reception an ex-Devil has EVER received upon their return to New Jersey to play the Devils. So let's make it happen.

Posted by MadDog2020 on 05 July 2012 - 02:07 PM

No. That vindicates his choice. I hope he never sniffs the playoffs or they go in as a 1 seed and get swept by the 8th seed Blue Jackets their next playoff appearance.

Bingo. I want this little fvckbag to start regretting his stupid decision by the end of year 2.

Posted by MadDog2020 on 05 July 2012 - 01:56 PM

Dont worry Zach- you'll never win jack sh!t. Thats what my sign will read by the glass for warm-ups that night. I'm, also going to bring my Parise jersey with tape over the nameplate with the word "QUITTER" in bold black marker. I will toss this jersey over the glass during warmups. I hope he fvcking trips on it and breaks his face.

I'm hoping 16,999 others will join me in a fvck YOU ZACH chant. That, or PARISE SUCKS. Whichever one sounds more offensive to him and his a$$hole father.

#1139075 Devils re-sign Bryce Salvador

I wouldn't have signed him for 3 years either, but the overreaction to this deal is laughable.

#1135695 ‏Zach Parise has agreed to terms with the Minnesota Wild

Posted by MadDog2020 on 27 June 2012 - 05:34 PM

Hope its true, but I wonder how much insider info DeBoer really has.

A whole hell of a lot more than we do, that's for sure.

Just a crazy hunch, but I don't really think Patrick Kane is a Lou kind of guy. So yeah. There's no chance this happens.

#1135068 Isles Offered Entire Draft

Posted by MadDog2020 on 25 June 2012 - 03:20 PM

When I saw the title I thought they'd offered it for the first pick which is goofy enough, but the first player in a draft does have cache. To do that to go up from 4-2 is lunacy though...and to turn it down is just as dumb. It's like the NHL version of Dumb and Dumber.

In one transaction never consummated, you see EXACTLY why the Isles and Columbus are where they are.

#1132629 POD: Post of the Day

Posted by MadDog2020 on 15 June 2012 - 08:13 AM

It's like I said, every now and then the hatred just needs to be vented. There really weren't that many posts about the Rangers during the season (I personally was so focused on what the Devils were doing I didn't really pay the Rangers much mind, especially when it became clear that the Devils weren't going to catch them in the standings), and two things have influenced the number of Ranger posts as of late:

1) The fact that the Devils played them in the ECF...if they hadn't you probably wouldn't have heard as much about them, and

2) Matteau#32 poking his head in here to stir the pot, and confidently stating time and time again that the Rangers would take the series.

Beating the Rangers in the playoffs is a big deal around here...before that, for the most part they'd clearly had the Devils' number in the playoffs, and that's a major sore spot when it's your chief rival. And what makes it more annoying is that when the Devils beat the Rangers in the playoffs in both '06 and '12, Ranger fans couldn't give the Devils credit either time...it wasn't what the Devils did, it was all about what the Rangers didn't do.

Anyway, the latest round of Ranger hatred is just about over, so you probably won't see too many more posts about them. We'll have enough on our plates soon enough, with free agency, another lockout looming...

I also move to make it a board rule that we close any Ranger or Ranger fan related thread with the following three words: HENRIQUE!!! ITS OVER!!!!
