    Round 2

    I don't care who we play, but seriously, I prefer payback on Carolina for 2002...

    Congratulations

    The Rangers have a bright future... I was quite impressed with Prucha, Holweg, Ortmeyer, Moore, Lundqvist, Tyutin, Hossa.... Next year they look forward to Dawes and Staal... The rangers are a good team...let's just hope that the publicity Sir Henrik is getting doesn't make him burn out as quickly as Eric Fichaud did with the Islanders...
  3. Elias and Langenbrunner as UFA's this coming summer severely troubles me. Elias is a long-shot to sign with the rags...that's guaranteed. However, I do see a team like Toronto, Colorado, Florida, and Vancouver taking a stab at Patty. If the Devs can't re-sign Patty, we're in major trouble...who are we going to rely on....Petr Vrana and Niklas Bergfors???
  4. It's funny as a NYR pre-season DRAFT television show had a huge segment on Zach Parise and how the Rangers wanted to draft him. They even showed a clip when Maloney interviewed Parise in a hotel room before the draft... Can't figure out why they went with Jessiman...
  5. To be honest, ten years ago I would have agreed with this author. I knew very little about Newark, and thus had this feeling that Newark was a "Harlem-like" slum in the middle of New Jersey. Having worked near Newark for the past nine years, and also making many friends in the community, has changed my mind. Newark is up an coming, and will take time...but it will happen! I live in East Rutherford, so having the Devs move is definitely sad. These days I'm only two minutes away from the CAA (literally speaking), and so it's definitely great! But hey, Newark is only 12 minutes away from here, so that shouldn't be so bad...plus, RT. 21 is like a speedway, so that would help cut my travel time in half ;-) Today's economics dictate the motives the Devils need a new building. The luxury suites will pretty much fund a good chunk of the Devils revenues, and a linked transportation system improves things a whole lot. This author fails to point out a few things.... 1. He didn't take the "pros" of moving to Newark...meaning fan feedback 2. He didn't suggest what "alternative locations" would be better. He's simply an airmchair author here... 3. He didn't do his homework...the NY/NJ Red Bulls will also build right across the way from the Newark Arena in Harrison. This certainly helps raise awareness to professional sports in the area, as well as help "boost" the economy in the Newark area...Red Bull Arena will compliment the Newark Arena quite well... 4. He didn't mention the NJPAC either. I'm sure the NJPAC has benefitted the community as well... All in all, he's riling up the reader, but not being impartial. However, he did say let me play "Devils' Advocate"
  6. My props to Eric Cole for his response on Orpik's request to get his phone number... Orpik is a retard...he should have called immediately, and visited the hospital... Yes, we're hockey players, but we're also human...the prospect of him having hit a player who suffered an injury that would potentially cause him to lose his livelihood and personal mobility is enough to merit a visit to the hospital... Shame on you Orpik...may Janssen take care of you next year!!!
  7. Hattrick...contain your excitment...it takes four to win!!! Case and point...finito!
  8. Good game indeed guys. The Devs looked better than the previous two. For all of those fans (including Matt Loughlin) that think this is over, just bear in mind that Petr Sykora played on the very New Jersey Devils team that came from 3-1 down to upset Philly in the 2000 Conference Semis... The rags have nothing to lose, and will play one period at a time... Be cautious about being overconfident, and remember, be humble and take the high road...

    TOM DROPS BOMB

    Who's the rapist they signed?
  10. OK...who's the "Other Czech" and the Swede on our team? Totally incorrect info if you ask me...
  11. Very, very a$$ backwards name...I would have like The Challenge Channel or The Victory Channel...Versus is indeed a men's cologne...
  12. Figures...only a Rangers fan would find something like that so funny... Actually, I thought it was pretty neat too... Good going Derek...
  13. No question, by today's standards, Lou Lamoriello has missed the gravy train when it comes to marketing his club. But I'll tell you something, he's employed the smartest marketing campaign of all- Winning! Winning and competing year-in and year-out builds a legacy of tradition, which naturally turns out fans over the "LONG TERM"... Besides, Lou is getting paid, the fans he does have are happy...so, who's complaining???
  14. People...calm down here. You have way too much time on your hands to start a useless argument... Jagr, nor Elias, nor both the Devs and Rags care about what you and I think...they will play, and someone will win, regardless of what we have to say about it... Let's get something straight, if the Devs play their game, and play sound/patient hockey, they will come out on top... The most important thing is to get the rags doubting themselves... And for those of you who blame Renney and Jagr for his injury, shame on you!!! I'm a Devs fan, but I hate when people make uneducated assumptions about what a coaches' thought process was...it's easy being an airmchair coach...shut up, and move on. It's no ones fault...just a bad coincidence...
  15. I'd love the Devs to go the distance in the playoffs, but there's nothing I would love more than the Devs to beat up both the Rags and the Flyers in the same year... But, I hope Buffalo gives them a royal beating.... Let's take care of business, and put doubt in the minds of the rags...
  16. Bottom Line...the Devils won. I'm sure we are all in agreement that this is a good thing. But, there are some major concerns: 1. Gio/Gomer/and Parise were ineffective for most stretches of the game 2. Patty and Sarge didn't get as much time with the puck, and definitely turned it over a lot 3. The PP...the Devils did not stick with the basics on the PP. I saw Gomer and Patty trying to carry the mail in all the time, rather than do what was simple...dump and chase... 4. The D was soft at times...there were several occasions when I witness Lukowich softly challenge the puck in the corner, and not chase it agressively enough, allowing the rags player to get there first and maintain possession 5. Pando/Mad Dog/and Marshall were being worked on quite a bit with the rags cycle...I saw them running around a few times... My suggestion for next game (only, and I repeat, only if he's willing to accept his role)... Put Kozlov in place of Cam Janssen on the wing...Kozzy can skate, hit, and score goals if needed...
  17. Campbell is the son of NHL Disciplinarian Colin Campbell. I wonder what would have happened if he had hit Umberger "unfairly"....would Colin have had to discipline him?

    Jagr Out

    Who really cares if Jagr is out and if Weekes is playing? In my opinion, bring in Weekes, Jagr, Ruchinsky, Ward...bring them all. If we're a good team, we can beat them no matter what. I'm tired of hearing about Jagr and Weekes...bring it on!!!
  19. from philly.com Umberger rallying; can the Flyers? R.J. hopes to play tonight after scary hit By ED MORAN morane@phillynews.com BUFFALO - The hotel lobby was quiet and dark. A large floral arrangement against a rear wall set a backdrop for what easily could have been a funeral parlor. A guy in a dark suit, standing with his hands folded in his lap, was all that was missing. R.J. Umberger was sitting by himself on a low wall in front of the collection of flowers, sending text messages. Anyone who saw the hit he took Saturday night in the first overtime of the Flyers' playoff-opening, 3-2, double-overtime loss to Buffalo, the one where Brian Campbell stepped up and caught Umberger with his head down, would have found the scene appropriate. Especially if Umberger was laid out in front of the flowers. But despite what it looked like Saturday night, despite the television replay constantly being shown, the one with the close-up of Umberger getting nailed and lying on his back, eyes rolling up into his head, he was very much alive yesterday morning. In fact, he said he was hoping to play in Game 2 tonight at HSBC Arena. "I feel all right, I feel fine," Umberger said. "We'll see what happens, see what the doctors think. I have good signs for today and I've just got to get some massages on my neck and see how it feels. It's their call, but I want to play. "My nose was broken but they snapped it right back into place and I had a sinus headache from that, but I feel fine right now. "I wanted to go back out [in the game]," he said. "I got everything back real quick. I remember everything about the game up to the hit, but I don't remember right after. I went into the training room and they said they put me through all the tests and that I was fine, but I don't remember them. "I remember the hit. I received the pass from [Niko Dimitrakos]; I was just going up and I kind of had my head down and I was going up ice and I wasn't expecting a guy to step up right there, especially not Campbell. It kind if caught me off guard." That Umberger was feeling fit and looking forward to the possibility of playing in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series is a good thing. It will be an even better thing if his bounce-back from what could have been a knockout blow sets the tone for the rest of the Flyers. After losing Game 1 in double overtime and falling behind in the series, the Flyers will have to rally tonight and make sure the loss does not become a death blow.
  20. I agree completely. This is definitely what I was thinking all along. Dude, he couldn't possibly have gotten hurt on a play like that....
  21. Totally clean hit. I really feel for Umberger. By the way, does anyone see how Umberger, especially after the camera focuses in on him after the hit, looks a lot like David Hale???
  22. Again, I would like to point out that Jagr left the Continental Airlines Arena yesterday WITHOUT a sling or cast...if his shoulder was badly damaged, they would have put one of these on him...Also, no cast on his hand. I think he's a go for Monday...
  23. Elias' little "kick assist" on Langenbrunner's goal looked more like he should be playing the midfield general for the Czech Republic this summer at the FIFA World Cup...he must have learned that trick watching Pavel Nedved...
  24. They showed a clip of him walking out of the locker room after the game and he didn't have any braces or casts on...I think it's all a hoax...

    Jagr's Condition

    Just got a chance to hear Jaromir Jagr's interview on Hockey Night New York Live. From the look on his face and the sound of his voice, he may know some information that may not be made public. He looked very "dejected" and it may seem that his team doctors told him he's a "no-go" next game... Thoughts? Jagr or no Jagr, the next game will be a challenge for the Devs. Thoughts?
