Are you surprised that there’s less to talk about in a 5-3 win than there is to talk about in the fourth 2+ goal lead home game blown already this season?

naaah... Not really. But we tend to focus on what's wrong rather than be happy. But i totally put myself in the same bag (just to be clear)

Wow this is a horrible take. People want Greene to hold himself and his teammates accountable, not run his mouth about the fans.  Not even remotely comparable. 

Just fvcking win. They aren't the 77 Habs but they shouldn't be this bad. The talent just doesn't align with the record. Get a lead and HOLD IT. Stop gagging it up. And how about a departure from our

I got nothing...

we honestly didn't play better or worst than most of our games. Hynes didnt change much either, still changed the lines at times, still played the 4th line everyone seem to hate, they all did the same thing but simply managed to win this one. 

What are you talking about? Simmonds played on the fourth line and Boqvist came in for Hayden. Also, the new Nico Bratt Zacha line is a very recent construction.  Simple changes and all of a sudden the fourth line plays great.

Certain guys have been playing WAY better, too. Particularly on defense. Last night was probably PK’s best game as a Devil. Vatanen has been on a tear, Greene and Severson were both solid, etc.

Right and we didn’t give up as many egregious chances either

That's because Hall didn't comment about the fans at home booing from their couches. 

It's funny that Greene catches flak on this board for not coming out and saying something when the team is playing poorly, however, when Hall makes a comment and sticks up for the team, he is absolutely crucified.  That sh!t cray.

Nobody wanted Greene to come out and start a feud with the fan base.

Hall thinking people were booing him during the Flyers game when they weren't and then thinking he had to get back at the fans with a goal celebration. That sh!t cray.

Nah, I don't see it that way at all.  He never said he was being booed, he used the pronoun 'we' over and over.  The only time he said 'I' was when he said he understood the fans frustration.  I'm not expecting to convince anyone because it seems like you've all made up your minds, but I do think he had the team's back on this one.  Sure, he could have handled it a bit better but he's probably even more frustrated and emotional (well, maybe not that one) about the trash start than this board is.

“I thought I heard.. I thought I was getting booed in the second period there” Hall said.

It's been said before but it's like there's still that big misconception in general that "Hall can't deal or handle being booed".

While there's no way for me to know 100%, i'm preeeettyyyyy damn sure that Hall's problem was not the booing itself but the timing/context of it. The context is pretty important here.

He straight up said that the fans were welcome to boo when it made sense basically and when the team deserved it. After a loss, right after blowing a lead, after a sh!tty PP where they can't even get a shot or take control of the puck... wtv... 

But booing the team when they are in control of the puck on the PP in a tie game and when they scored a PP goal not too long before... that's not voicing your displeasure as if a goalie gives up a bad goal, or when the team do something sh!tty or wtv... that's trolling. Just like when a goalie is having a terrible night and the crowd cheer after he makes a ridiculously easy save... vs cheering a goalie who made a big important save. it's all about context.

 

Disclaimer: All of this is not Hall or me explaining what fans are allowed and not allowed to do. It's just giving context that the timing didn't make much sense and was not respectful and that's what bothered him.

Must have missed that quote.  I was referencing this.

 

Yeah that was after Wednesdays game vs Tampa, I was talking about the Flyers game from Friday when he put his hand to his ear after scoring... 

"When asked about the celebration, Hall laughed, saying there wasn’t any ill will behind it.

“I thought I heard, I thought I was getting booed in the second period there,” Hall said. “So just making light of that fact.”

 

Which wasn't a fact because he was never booed during that flyers game except in his own delusional mind.

He literally said "I thought I heard" not "I heard". 

You're blowing this wayyyy out of proportion. You're like FURIOUS about this. I actually don't understand why you're taking this SO personal and don't seem to be willing to give a player you liked until like... last week the benefit of the doubt. Is it cause you're sure he's gone so you're trying to find ways to hate him so it doesn't hurt as much when he does?

Cause it's pretty damn easy to look at this situation and take it in a way where it's reaallly not a big deal. But you're choosing to not do that lol

Because he showed his true colors about how much of a dip sh!t he is. This fan base gets enough sh!t as it is and now we have a "leader" of the team trolling the fan base with a goal because he "thinks he might have heard" some boos...... That never happened.  If he was legit booed I would get it but he wasn't so him doing that because he "thinks" he heard some makes him look like even a bigger dip sh!t. There's nothing to give him the benefit of the doubt about because he came out and said hey I did this because I thought the fans were booing me (again, they weren't) 

I fully admit I am legit 100% pissed the fvck off about it. If the team didn't already have my money I wouldn't be going to another game until he was gone. I have 0 desire to support any sports player with my money who does something as stupid as this nonsense to their own fan base. 

I don't think he'll be on the team by the end of the season so at least I won't have to worry about it for much longer anyway. 

I really don't care if anyone thinks I'm being over dramatic. Everyone's entitled their own opinion like you say all the time. I'm probably gonna take a break from the boards soon myself or at the very least just not talk about Hall going forward because I'm done with him.

So as I mentioned. You're not willing to give the whole thing the benefit of the doubt at all ? Cause the elements to explain rationally the whole thing are absolutely there.

What are the odds of him secretly being a dipsh!t for years and only slipped this once... VS this being a big misunderstanding mixed with frustration? lol

I mean.. personally i don't care if you're pissed off or not lol I'm not telling you to change your mind. It's just trying to convince you to at least consider challenging your current believe... in order to not be pissed off this much about this situation and putting you in a situation where you won't enjoy devils hockey at all just because of a possible misunderstanding. 

I mean... mayyyyybe Hall is a piece of sh!t and actually meant to troll the fanbase. But everyone not believing that is in quite a good mood at the moment lol wouldn't you want that? haha

There's nothing to give a benefit of the doubt here. It's a cut and dry story. 

He got annoyed fans booed the PP and came out and talked about that.... Fine, that annoyed me but I can at least understand the rational behind it. 

Next game, he "thinks he got booed" during the second period so it's clearly in his mind the rest of the game and then when he scores the go ahead goal in the 3rd period proceeds to celebrate to troll the fans that he "thinks booed" him.... When they didn't. He literally then goes and says he did the celebration because he thought he got booed. 

What am I giving him the benefit of the doubt about? That he has piss poor hearing? Lol

You don't like PK because you think he's an egomaniac..... I don't like Hall anymore because he acted like a total moron about this whole thing and created a problem where there wasn't any.

What's there to be in a good mood about with this team? That we just won one game on the road? Yippee. I still think this season is over in terms of making the playoffs so it's probably gonna end up being another pointless year of meaningless games. 

I haven't enjoyed watching losing terrible Devils hockey for the vast majority of the past 8 seasons anyway so disliking one guy on the team who is on his way out the door soon isn't really going to change much when it comes to that anyway.

Why am I on the board reading this stuff at almost 1:30 when I have to be up for work in a few hours?  Ugh.  Then again why is anyone else also up reading this board if you’re on the east coast?  No idea why I made this post but as soon as I click submit I’m going to sleep.

Definitely don’t do that. This board doesn’t get enough activity as it is, and you’re good poster.

At least one poster confirmed there was at least some booing of Hall.  

I still don’t think he was right to do what he did, but honestly, I don’t think it’s as big a deal as it’s been made on this board. He should be pissed about being booed. I’d be upset if he wasn’t.

They fvcking won a game, against a good team on the road, so there should be less booing all around, whether it's to the team as a whole, or a player (like Hall) individually and directly.  

Also, Hall is quietly riding a nice little consecutive point streak here - when he made it past 25 during his MVP season two years ago I said I would buy his jersey, and I did.  I got a home red one.  It's a long way to go, and given the way him and the team started it's not a great sign or likely to happen, but if he gets over 25 again this season I will buy another one of his, a road white one.
