Believe what you want.  

Just don't be surprised when these so-called "blown calls" happen.

 

and that's all I'll say on this matter.

 

We're going around in circles here.

I don't think anyone is going around in circles. I think we're all just laughing at you. There's no back-and-forth here; this is you pretending the NHL is a soap-opera and us finding that hysterical.

And as I said, I know it was Game 3 but I'm not naive to believe that, THAT obvious Hand-pass was somehow missed "accidentally".    To the NHL and Bettman, I say : "Give me a break...." smh.

It's not naive to think that the fvcking National Hockey League isn't rigged. Holy sh!t. It was Game fvcking 3 lol.

Well I'm so glad I'm entertaining you all.  (sarcasm, in case you missed it)

 

Maybe for my next trick I'll disappear forever at this rate. :wacko:

You've been here less than a month and you have almost two hundred posts. That kind of enthusiasm is awesome, and has been steadily declining over the years with the team stinking. I don't want you to disappear forever. 

But suggesting that the NHL is "fixing" playoff games (and dealing with this massive, massive back-lash and PR nightmare) because they'd prefer a 2-1 Sharks series lead over a 2-1 Blues series lead for some undisclosed reason is stupid. Defending it and calling everyone else naive is stupid. Sorry if that is offensive to you.

Well I can say this about njdevs, there's almost always a 90% chance that whatever you post, you'll get a response (positive or negative).

That's... an interesting take. 

I have plenty of issues with the blown call in overtime. If a goal can be overturned because a player is a pube-hair offsides, a blatant hand-pass needs to be reviewable. 

I don't need "faster" hockey games. I need correct outcomes. 

I don't agree that I necessarily need every call to be right, I appreciate the human element, but I agree that it's insane to review offsides but not this garbage. I think my answer would be to scrap most reviews. If a trained ref can't see it in real time, it probably should stand. 

I can accept that there will be reviews, but the line between what is and isn't reviewable can't be this arbitrary and fvcking stupid. I'd trade reviewing plays like that for scrapping offsides review any day.

Maybe this place needs a crazy person like me that you can laugh at and mock?

 

The proverbial Class-clown, if you will.

 

I think I'll start talking about Aliens......or Lou Lamoriello....or Both.

- I never thought the League wanted the Devils to lose that game either.   I was just pointing out how infuriating it was from remembering it.

Others did.

Aliens (but you said Lou....Aren't they the same? )

That’s correct.

No, we had one of those. His name was LD and we still hate him, wherever he is.

Okay. 

 

Scratch the "Class-Clown" bit then.

Got to go to Plan B.

 

What's plan B?    

 

I'll let you know when I figure that out.  ;)

Also, the officials from last night are apparently done for the playoffs:

Everyone seems to think they were removed as a disciplinary measure when in reality (and this is just my opinion here), they simply finished their "tour of duty" for this season.

They'll be back next season with an empty apology (if there is any) by the league.

Great, the most unlikable player in the league is going to the finals. Just what the hockey world wants to see. 

Having to watch that fvck hoist the Cup again will be almost as bad as it being the Rags. Almost.

Gotta hand it to the Canes fans. Pretty good send off for their team.

At least MoJo will get a shot at the Cup he missed out on with the Caps....

And he doubles down. Bold move, Cotton, let’s see how it plays out for them.

It's smart marketing, they aren't doing it out of kindness. They are piggybacking on the controversy and more people will be talking about fan duel and will probably be betting through them over another company.

No I don’t. 3,000 of them show up during the regular season and then they pump their tires as the “LouDeST bArN iN thE NhL” when they fill the place for six games in May. 

They got to celebrate a total of one conference finals goal at home. And in the dark realities of Rat Marchand 4 wins away from licking the stanley cup, I can take some solace in their misery.

I hate Carolina and besides the cheap shot on Mojo I'm indifferent about Marchand so I'm fine with Boston winning.
