  1. Given Pittsburgh's history, I wouldn't put it past them to deliberately tank the last few games to get the 6 seed.
  2. Nice to see the team step it up and dominate a third period! I wasn't watching, but looking at the 2nd period shots I was sure the game was over.
  3. Hope the Bs enjoy Rolston and Mottau. WTF?
  4. http://www.usatoday.com/sports/hockey/nhl/2010-09-13-devils-kovalchuk-fine_N.htm "The Devils will give up a third-round pick in 2011 and one first-rounder — the club's choice — over the next four years." (N)Єverson's an idiot. The Devils have until 2014.
  5. It seems like a lot, but what utility did any of those players have to the Devils organization? Palmieri is a risky prospect. Vellieux is a 30-year-old AHLer. And Zid is an upgrade over Foster. Lou swapped Foster for Zidlicky, through in some crap he has sitting in the basement. The picks are the most valuable part of the trade.
  6. Yeah, we gave up a lot... We gave up three nickels and a quarter for a dollar bill. They got four coins and we got once piece of paper... We got hosed!
  7. I can't believe they won. The last time I checked the score on my phone it was 3-2 Ducks in OT.
  8. Yeah, let's trade the #9 scorer for the #69 scorer in the league...! GREAT IDEA!!!!!
  9. Haha. My Sabres fan friend has given up. He wants them to tank and get a high draft pick.
  10. Looked like a slew foot to me...
  11. Personally, I care less about the call than the outrage over it like it was an OBVIOUS blown call.
  12. Here's another one... about 4:00 into the highlights... http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/console?hlg=20112012,2,594&fr=false
  13. This is what it looks like when a defenseman pushes an attacker into the goalie:
  14. The impetus is on the attacker to avoid contact, even if he is "pushed" by an opposing player. Gaborik didn't make any attempt to stop or avoid Marty. Hell, he threw his shoulder into Marty.
  15. It's a good call. "If an attacking player has been pushed, shoved, or fouled by a defending player so as to cause him to come into contact with the goalkeeper, such contact will not be deemed contact initiated by the attacking player for purposes of this rule, provided the attacking player has made a reasonable effort to avoid such contact."
  16. The Devils have the image of a classic team. Teams that have not significantly changed their logos/images in an effort to modernize: Rangers, Red Wings, Canadiens, Blackhawks, Bruins, Flyers, Devils. Every other team has gone through a phase, and most of them have come back to the original look or something close to it (think Isles, Penguins, Sabres, Capitals). I guess the Devils could do a lame modern third jersey that would last 2-3 years in an attempt to boost revenue, but I'd hate to see them do something idiotic that would ruin the branding that makes the Devils seem like a classic team.
  17. Whether he thinks it is or not, it is a political statement. It's like those people on YouTube who upload pop songs, music videos, movies, etc. and put "no copyright violation intended". It doesn't matter what he intended. It's intrinsically political.
  18. po·lit·i·cal/pəˈlitikəl/ 1. Of or relating to the government or the public affairs of a country. Saying "I believe the Federal government has grown out of control" may not be partisan, but it is absolutely political.
  19. There are situations in which you are expected to act a representative of the organization to which you belong, regardless of your individual beliefs or opinions. Frankly I don't care that Thomas didn't go. The problem is that he insulted his team by using this opportunity to make an individual statement.
  20. The Bruins are not being honored by Obama as an individual. They are being honored by the United States of America as represented by the President.
  21. Please... there were at least 3 - if not twice that many - missed holds on the GB offensive line. And how can you forget the BS reversed Jennings fumble and the non-existent head contact penalty against Osi? GTFOOH. If anyone should be complaining against the officiating in the GB game, it's the Giants.
