  1. I actually didn't know that story, but it gives me even more respect for Graves. He was a classy player on and off the ice and a better person. As much as I hate the Rags, you have to love a guy like Adam Graves. He's good friends with DeBoer too from what I've heard. I think they may have come up together in juniors around the same time.

    heres a little article on it

  2. I actually don't mind 3 of the 4 of the "Big Four" of the 1994 Rags.  The only one I hate is that dopey-looking bald bastard with the constant stream of tears in his eyes.

    I'm OK with 2 of the 4 

    eff Mess and Richter (Richter insulted NJ on a few occaisions)

    Leetch...meh

    Graves...OK, I'm sure we all know the story of the kids he helped out and the one he brought to the Garden to meet any ranger he wanted and the kid wanted to meet Marty, so Graves said OK, lets go meet him, and they did, the kid was so happy about it. Good little story

  3. Embellishment should be penalized by a three minute minor. You heard it here first. If there is a corresponding two minute minor to the opposing player, his team will nevertheless go on the pp for one minute. This should take care if any and all incentives to embellish. It's a far shot, but I like the way it sounded in my head.

    I'd back this idea, especially when a 4th liner dives and puts your best D man in the box for interference or holding etc

  4. not sure how many he would have, but I do wonder if he gets to 700, if he's a backup next year I'm not so sure he'll get 12 wins and then what does he do? come back in 2015/16  again ?

    Marty had good timing getting into the league at a young age on a good team, but he also went through 3 lock outs that didnt help his stats

  5. yeah when somebody tweets the Devils are in negotiations with Kovi, well thats jumping over some hurdles we would have heard about first

    like:

    Ilya wants to un-retire and come back to the NHL

    or

    all 30 GM's approve Kovi back into the league 

     

    then we might hear about negotiations 

  6. I am starting to believe there are some discussions. Ultimately though, there appear to be no loophole through the By-Laws, even under my reading of them, which might allow the Devils to bring Kovy back under the contract he had, but they wouldn't do that even if they could.

    how about change of ownership, is their a clause that might make previous contracts etc meaningless or something like this?

  7. as much as we hate the rags, and the queen, you know he's good enough to steal a game in the series...well he stole one for the team/fans last night, let's see if he can steal another, in fact he will have a clunker in this series too.

    The Kings look much better than the Pens and Canadians did, and seem to be getting stronger as this series moves along

  8. Is this acquaintance of a friend the security guard at CAA?

    no, listen, I know it sounds like BS, but I went to the Met / Yankee game at Citi Field a few weeks ago and when we got back we started talking hockey, we were both loaded as it was a bus trip from Rockland County to the game and then back, but he told me this story about him talking to a guy (maybe from group sales) in person, not on the phone, and he told him not to change or get rid of the jersey, keep it.

  9. There is no way in hell Quick is going to sniff the Conn Smythe. Kopitar, Doughty, Carter and Gaborik are firmly ahead and you could probably add Williams to that list as well.

    I think the next game (hopefully the last game) one of those guys will have a real strong game and seal the deal

  10. don't care if he's coming back but i was at sports authority today and found kovie jersey for 60 bucks, stitch on name plate on back, so i bought it thinking i'll just take the plate off and put on hopefully boucher or someone 17 after ryder. at check out, with a discount, i got it for 40 bucks. what a steal.

    A friend of mine was talking to someone who worked somewhere in the Devils organization and told him his kid has a Kovi jersey, and he is so bummed out now since Kovi isnt on the team, and this guy told him flat out.."don't get rid of it...keep it"

    for whatever its worth

  11. I think last night takes Henrik out of the runnings. I don't know how they could fathom giving him a Conn Smythe, these aren't 1-0 games. Doughty or one of the Kings forwards is definitely gonna get it. I'd like Williams to get it.

    yeah he isnt getting it, I think a King will get it regardless of which team wins.

  12. i don't know, i'd say Doughty was the MVP throughout the playoffs... but maybe Carter or Quick during the Finals..

     

    either way, lets tread lightly and wait for that 4th win horn to sound

    as we know from 2003 a player on the losing team can win the Con
