  1. What ever happened to "if it ain't broken don't fix it?" Yes, I agree that reinforcing the defense was necessary, especially with Matvichuk's condition and with the age of Albelin, but for goodness sake was it necessary to insert them "immediately" into the lineup??? Then...this is what is ticking me off even more...what is Johnny Mac...Laps...or Louie Lams thinking with the lines...I mean, there's no continuity with the lines... Geeze, roll the lines for goodness sake...you keep seeing the same 'ol guys out there...I thought Kozzy was playing well...but he got limited playing time... Parise was playing well...but, then again, limited playing time... Boys/Girls...we're in trouble....
  2. Dude, admin or no admin...who cares... Buddies get into kahoots, and that's reality... Move on...
  3. Forza Juventus!!! With Ibrahimovic, Trezegol (Trezeguet), and il "magico" Del Piero, and Pavel Nedved we can't go wrong... The best team in Europe...period!!

    LAVIO-LOSERS

    At the time of the selection both Parise and Langenbrunner were not playing all that great, however, I would not have overlooked at least selecting Jay Pandolfo. He could have been used in a role to shut down other top-gun forwards, and thus may have helped. I definitely would have had Paul Martin in there as well. As for goalkeeping, I would have had Ryan Miller in the fold. John Graham, Roberte Esce, and DiPietro just didn't cut it...
  5. He's just pissed that NBC passed over him in favor of the ever-so-talented Al Roker... Bryant Gumbel is considered a "white black"...have any of you ever watched the Chappelle Show? They all bust on Bryant Gumbel as being a white dude dressed in black skin... I guess this was supposed to be his way of "gaining black points" among the community...
  6. It's bad for the sport, period. Women's hockey is negligible to begin with, and now having two teams consistently compete for the gold- USA and Canada, makes absolutely no sense either. Running up the score shows how unequal the sport is anyway. At this point, rather than have a tournament, might as well have a best of seven series between USA and Canada in women's ice hockey... As for Canada, Annabelle, let me remind you that hockey is pretty much all you guys have (Canada). You're less than impressive in all sports besides hockey and curling (retarded sport if you ask me)... Let's see if Canada played Italy or Brazil in soccer, how you would feel if Ronaldinho, Kaka, and Roberto Carlos made you guys look like fools on the soccer pitch...you wouldn't like it at all I reckon...Canada absolutely sucks at soccer... And let me tell you something else there...if the soviet Union didn't collapse, and Czechloslovakia stayed as one, Canada definitely wouldn't be the best hockey team either...
  7. Easy there buddy. Italy is not known as a hockey country, and of course, they expect to get destroyed. I suppose the same can be said about the soccer pitch when it comes to Canada...they didn't even qualify for the World Cup...I mean Trinidad and Tobago qualified over them...quite embarassing.... As for it being called "Torino," its about time Americans start recognizing other cultures, and learning how to pronounce things...we, in my opinion, have the most uncultured society in the world, and by pronouncing it Torino, we're finally moving in the right direction...
  8. The Czech or Slovak team will pull through...although the Slovak goaltending is questionable...
  9. About 3 miles north of the CAA, off of Route 120 North, which turns into Paterson Avenue, there's a place called Caffe' Capri. You will find it on the left hand side...it has a parking lot, and is in the heart of East Rutherford. They are a nice, not expensive Italian place, and make awesome brick oven pizza... You can't go wrong, and it's literally 3 minutes from the CAA... To return to the CAA from Caffe Capri, simply go the other direction...Paterson Avenue/RT 120 South, and you'll see the CAA on your left... Good luck... Mike

    Mogilny Scores!

    Here's my theory...Almo isn't all that stupid...he went down to Albany, played a few games, and now (all of a sudden) he's mysteriously injured....this way, he can collect his paycheck, and doesn't have to report to practice or games...it's a ingenious idea!!! Go Almo...way to stick it to the boss!!!

    Almo

    Well, many of you have not calculated another reason why Lou may have banished Almo to the minors...just think of it, the Devs have some pretty KEY free agents this coming summer, who will all be negotiating raises in salary...by keeping an underachieving Mogilny on the roster (at 3.5 million/per year), you are sending the signal that "if this guy makes $3.5, and performed average, well then I should make double because of my greater contribution"... Case and point Brian Gionta, Scott Gomez, Patrik Elias...if they were to be compared to Almo and his 3.5 million salary, well, then they should all be making 5-6 million each for what they've done so far this season... Getting rid of Almo, McGillis is not only a personnel move, but also a good negotiating tool for Lou come next summer...
  12. Look at the bright side, maybe Mogilny can help their flopping attendance...they got him for free too!
  13. Thanks for the correction...I didn't know where to go with the article...
  14. Mogilny pays early dividend In Rats debut, veteran tallies game-winning goal Staff and wire reports First published: Saturday, January 14, 2006 River Rats 2 Americans 1 ROCHESTER -- Former NHL All-Star Alexander Mogilny scored the tie-breaking goal 15 seconds into the third period to carry the Albany River Rats to a 2-1 victory over the Rochester Americans on Friday night in the American Hockey League. Mogilny was waived by the New Jersey Devils last week and went unclaimed. He was assigned to Albany (13-24-0-2) this week and made his AHL debut Friday after 15 1/2 seasons in the NHL. Mogilny took the puck at center, sped away from winger Clarke MacArthur and defenseman Doug Janik, then flipped a backhander past the blocker and right shoulder of goalie Jean-Marc Pelletier to give Albany the 2-1 lead. River Rats goalie Frank Doyle made 36 saves as the Americans (19-18-1-1) outshot Albany 37-28. He allowed a first-period goal to MacArthur at 12:34. Another demoted NHL player, defenseman Dan McGillis, tied the score with a power-play goal 3:12 later. During his NHL career, Mogilny had 473 goals and 559 assists. Notes: Alexander Suglobov was called up by the Devils on Friday. Suglobov, who will celebrate his 24th birthday Sunday, filled the vacancy created when Mogilny was sent down. Suglobov has had a big season down in Albany, scoring 14 goals and adding 15 assists in 33 games.

    Mogilny Scores!

    Looks like our demotions, McGillis and Mogilny are paying dividends for the Rats...they both scored in tonight's game against Rochester... Go Rats!
  16. Hey DEVS25, you don't have to worry so much...if you still have a crush on him, have no fear, I look a lot like him, and am quite single...
  17. Sounds like you need to get yourself a boyfriend who A) can cook...B) can clean up afterwards, and C) give you all the TLC possible after he's done... Shame on him and his dirty, scuzzy hockey team!

    MARTY OFF MARK

    Dudes...I will not rest until the Devils beat the Rangers in a playoff series..believe me, I had diarrhea for two days after the Devs lost to the Rags in 1994...
  19. I see Kozy getting traded after the Olympic break... Mark my words...
  20. Forget the cup being present when they retire Stevens and Dano's jerseys...the cup will only be present when we win again! Secondly, for Scotty's ceremony, they should invite the following... 1. Slava Kozlov 2. Ron Francis 3. Eric Lindros 4. Neurologist Karen Johnston.... Remember, it's a celebration, but not a friggen production. XM radio had a big deal with Messier's celebration, after all, he is sponsored by them and so is the NHL... Dano should have some of the girls from Stilettos and Lace come to the rink...
  21. Guys, nobody questions Mogilny's abilities. The guy is an amazing hockey player. No question about it... But remember, hockey is as much mental as it is physical, and Mogs wasn't bringing it in the locker room... Bad attitudes don't fly with Louie Lams, and it appears as if Almo was a lot more into himself than the team...
  22. Milbury has a lot of thinking to do... I mean, he brings in Yashin in exchange for guys like Chara and Spezza... He trades away Jokkinen and Luongo and Bertuzzi... Clearly, Milbury isn't the right person for this kind of job... The Isles would have been in contention if they had guys like Chara, Spezza, Jokkinen, Luongo, and Bertuzzi...
  23. You can't possibly compare Rolo to Pando...Rolo can be used as a second or third line scoring winger...Pando on the other hand, can't skate nearly as fast, or doesn't have a shot comparable to Rolo... I would take Rolo over Pando any day...
  24. You've all been wondering where Almo's been since he was waived, well, I guess you have your answer...maybe he goes under the alias "Raphael"... ;-))) This guy is hysterical...gotta love his courage and enthusiasm...
  25. First, given the history of enthusiasm and passion, or lack thereof, of Russian-born forwards playing for the Devils (exception Sarge and Zeli), I don't see Antropov making his way to the Devs. However, I would do a trade bringing Malone to the Devs for Pando...that's doable... I don't see Pando going anywhere anyway...he'll be the first Devil forward to have his jersey retired... Tarnstrom is trade bait...
