    2-0 Caps. This looks like a different team.

    Yeah, this is suprising. 

    These guys have to be tired of hearing about how much they choke.

    I'm not feeling the love and desire for Shattenkirk.  I don't see it. Not for what he'll supposedly command.

    Who knows what will happen by July 1 but I feel like his number is coming down really fast in these playoffs, especially if Washington ends up bowing out in 5 or 6 games to a Crosby-less Pens team.  The key is that  even if we overpay, it has to be clear he's coming in to play the Marik Zidlicky role.   If a team is expecting him to come in and be a first pairing two way guy, it's going to be a train wreck.

    With how bad Shattenkirk has been in the playoffs, and how much of an offer its going to take to get him, id almost pass. 


    His playoffs have made it a much harder decision to just throw money and term at him.

    I pretty much agree with this. He hasn't done very much to state his case either with the post season he's been having. If his stock falls and he's somewhat reasonably priced, then I'm alright with still taking a shot. Otherwise let Broadway  be suckers and overpay for him.

    I've seen Rag fans online who are even calling for them to pass on Shattenkirk and not overpay- everyone is down on him big time right now.

    Isn't he still pretty much better than anyone the Devils currently have? Maybe not Severson, but who else?

    I really don't mind Toronto. Actually I used to actively hate them on the same level as Philly (think back to the early 00s and Tie the Turtle Domi) but it's hard to hate this team now. I hope they stay around in the conversation for a while. 

    Yeah, I hated Domi, not the Leafs. I was shocked recently when I heard Daneyko say they're friends now.

    The only player I've ever hated more is Sean Avery.

    The East is so fvcking pathetic. The same bullsh!t is going to happen every year. ..the Caps choke like the pansies they are, the Penguins steamroll through the competition (because, well, there's hardly any...), the Rags will find a way to slither to the Conference Finals, and the rest of the teams will show flashes of brilliance and promptly freak out and repeatedly sh!t the bed. Someone buy these teams an economy size box of Depends and let's go. fvck. This sh!t pisses me off.

    At least the West has been pretty exciting. 

    Toronto is up and coming and Tampa is damn good when they're healthy, but yeah this is getting old.

    I haven't taken Hockey News seriously in years.  Back in our 'glory days' they'd always predict us to miss the playoffs.  I even remember a couple times reading about how certain players were "wasting their careers" in New Jersey.

    There's an obvious Canadian bias.  The fact that they left Malkin off their top-100 sealed the deal for me.  They're a joke.

    fvck The Hockey News. They HATE the Devils. I used to get the magazine, but I dropped it years ago. The worst I remember was a cover story of something to the effect of "Marty Brodeur is one of the best of all-time, but please don't let his team win Stanley." Some bs about trap...blah...blah...boring...blah, etc. I even wrote a letter pointing out reasons why they were actually pretty exciting to watch at times in the early 00's. Ofc it wasn't printed.

    Pittsburgh going through the Presidents' Trophy winners like a knife through warm butter without two key core players. Good luck to the next two clubs that get in their way.

    I think the Preds could beat them.

    At least it looks like there's no way the Rags are getting out of the east.

  7. ^You make a good point 82-83. My NFL team is the Bengals and I've never once heard our uni's called "Halloween." Weren't the Devils original colors chosen because of all the Italian Americans in NJ? I could have swore I heard that somewhere once. I always liked that too as I'm half Italian myself.

    Ryan Getzlaf is dominating this game right now.

    Haven't some made comparisons of Nolan Patrick to him? I would be ecstatic is so. I remember watching him play in the AHL playoffs during the 05 lockout. That team also had Chris Kunitz, Joffrey Lupul, and Ilya Bryzgalov. That was some awesome hockey at minor league prices.

    He posts that ridiculous article and then goes on twitter to essentially pat himself on the back with some stale memes :lol: 

    He also posted a "response video" where he goes after Trotz pretty personally, because Trotz shut him down in the post-game pressure.

    It's embarrassing, really.  This guy is a joke, and is somehow a journalist?

    Trotz is as class as they come. fvck that guy.

    what a weird win for the Caps.

    If Crosby is out though, the plot really thickens.

    I think he'll be back next game. Even if he's not I still like the Pens chances. Malkin is playing great right now. 

  11. I want to see him doing that in red and black next year!

    I still think it would be worth making a run at Shattenkirk this summer just because we so desperately need his skill set but he's been a f'ing disaster this series.   

    You were saying...

    Has a Swiss player even gone #1? 

    I'd be happy with either, but I guess I'm leaning towards Patrick. Lose a Patrik, gain a Patrick. ;)

    Think I'd take Patrick. This comes seeing exactly 0 seconds of either. My real motive is the passing of the torch from Patrik to Patrick. It would inspire me to get good at photoshop and recreate the Creation of Adam with Elias as god and Nolan as Adam. 

    Patrick to NJ (e5). 

    What's with people stealing my sh!t lately. :P
