I thought Buffalo got a first for Kane.  We are not in any position to be giving up first round picks.

The Maroon trade has been ok.  At least he produces a little.  The Grabner trade has been a disaster, and was one that I hated from when it was made.  He’s done nothing, won’t be resigned, and cost us a second and top D prospect that went to our biggest rival which you know will come back to haunt us in the future.  Shero has been great, but that trade was not 1 of his finer moments.

They did, but we gave up a 2nd and 3rd for Maroon and that clown Grabner. They may have taken a 2nd and rd for him. Kane is a difference maker and they are not. Just my .02.

 This whole "being out played by higher skilled players" thing is nonsense. Parity is razor thin in the NHL. Losing in 5 is one thing, but they've been thoroughly out played more times than the talent gap would predict. This isn't the NBA. Every team should have a shot in every series. I think the Devils were unprepared and their inexperience was one of the biggest factors. You hope we keep improving, and I trust that we will, but no one would be shocked if we weren't back in the playoffs until 20 or 21. Disappointed they haven't kept this series very close. 

Nonesense??? Man were you watching the same game as everyone else??? We have one.....I repeat one highly talented player on the roster and that's Hall. Nico did very well for a rookie. Any given day one team could beat another.....I get that. But Tampa had serious talent where the Devils just do not! Devils have a bunch of money to spend this offseason and I hope they get Hall some help.

i'm actually meeting Michael J Fox, Chris Loyd, Lea Thompson and Tom Wilson in 4 months. I cannot explain how excited i am about that

Good thing Eric Stoltz was sacked when he was...apparently in the cafeteria scene where Biff and Marty were about to go at it (but were interrupted by Strickland), when Stoltz was still there, he was pushing back at Wilson so hard that he was leaving bruises on Wilson's chest, despite Wilson telling him to cool it, that it wasn't necessary to get so "real" (apparently Stoltz's method acting was starting to get on a lot of nerves).  Wilson and Stoltz still had the car scene at the prom to shoot, and Wilson basically said he was planning on laying Stoltz out that day...but then Stoltz was canned and that was that. 

Lots of good info about BTTF out there...apparently once it was decided that Stoltz wasn't going to cut it as Marty, and Michael J Fox was able to work out an arrangement with Family Ties (he could shoot BTTF on weeknights and weekends, but on weekdays he was 100% property of Family Ties), they decided that on the BTTF sets that they would keep shooting with Stoltz, mostly to "rehearse" how they were going to re-shoot the scenes once Fox was on set.  The director was told not to give Stoltz any direction, so that the footage would be bad enough on its own to convince the producers that yes, Stoltz indeed wasn't working out and that even though it would cost a lot of time and money, that everything he had done would need to be redone with Fox. 

There is actually a couple of Stoltz shots that made it in the final film...when he was in the mall parking lot in the DeLorean, and the Lou's Diner scene where Biff gets socked in the face.  Wilson confirmed that, because he said that he and Fox never shot that scene.  The fist is also coming from too high up to be Fox's. 

 

Oh, and phuck the Flyers and the complete trash that masquerades as their fanbase.  Any chance that they get to remind you how much they truly suck, they take full advantage.

Every time I think of Wilson I always think of this:

I'm not saying there wasn't a talent disparity, I'm saying they were outplayed far beyond the talent difference between the teams. There are other things that Tampa did much better than the Devils besides having better hockey players.

I'm just curious, because I think I'm in the extreme minority at least on this board, but does anyone else really like this playoff format? I know people are really unhappy about Winnipeg and Nashville in the second round, but I think this format is fantastic. I love the league trying to cultivate rivalries by forcing each team to get through their division first. And it makes sense; be the best team in your region to compete to be the best team on your side of the continent to compete to be the best team in the league. I love it. Another Pittsburgh/Washington matchup would be fantastic. 

The only thing I would change is if the wild card teams aren't from the same division, scrap the second wild card automatically matching up with the best team in the conference and stick each team in their division's bracket. If for instance Florida had won the first wild card instead of Philly, doesn't make much sense to put us through the Atlantic and them the Metro.

I thought I was going to hate it because I got sick of the same matchups every year in the Patrick/Norris/Smthye/Adams divisions but there are so many more teams now that it’s not really an issue.   I agree it’s produced some good matchups so far

Whats the chances Torts walks out of his presser ?  First question.....Hows that game 7 in Washington working out coach ?.....Off he'll go. I so enjoy seeing him fail .

‘We laid an egg’. ‘We sucked.’ ‘I’m not gonna break it down for you guys’.

And...Columbus has still never won a playoff series. fvck em. 

As much as I was dragging the Caps, I said when it was 0-2 CBJ that CBJ was going to have a very hard time winning two more games. Even if there were times here and there they out shot the Caps they never looked like the more dangerous team and never looked in control to me for any extended period of time of any of the games.
