#2278231 League takeover of cash-strapped Devils may be inevitable

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 05 April 2012 - 12:20 PM

I don't really follow the Devils but it seems like even when they're very good, they still have trouble filling seats.


#2278182 Babcock heaps praise on the value of Jonathan Ericsson

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 05 April 2012 - 10:30 AM

He's one of the only guys on the team who clears guys from the crease. Our other Dmen are either too small, or play like they're too small.

When White was out there last night he practically got shoved into his own net he was pushed around so easily.

After this game, I hereby transfer all of my Ericsson hate to Kindl...

Ericsson looked -- dare I say -- good out there?

E played 26:34 tonight, leading all defensemen.

Malkin and Kane always do that, drives mef****** nuts.

It makes sense as a strategy but it just makes it so much more of a gimmick skills competition. You'd never have that kind of time in a game.

Oh yeah... THAT'S what Mule plays like... NICE

Hopefully he's flipped the switch instead of just playing like he should for a few shifts.

Glad we got a point, but I can't get over the 5 minute PP....such total bulls***.

That was seriously ugly for a team with this much talent.

Letsgowings= Bi-POLAR

yup. Always have been. The bad thing is I think the team caught it from us.

Mule! Thanks to Doc for talking about the shutout. :P

Kindl again. Jesus.

Kindl>Ericsson?

oh if only franzen would harness that anger and remember he's 6'3" 220 all the time.

Agreed.

Though even when he gets angry, it's only for a gloved punch after the whistle.

"anytime ericsson gets the puck go hard on him"

oh god the secret's out.

what's funny is that play highlighted the exact opposite of what they were saying. E took the hit and made a calm pass to Abby.

Wings are handling the Blues forecheck pretty well. Making good outlet passes and not getting rattled by the hits.

please keep the discussion about the game and not complaining about a specific member. Argue the point being made, not the person.

if part of a post has a personal attack or takes shots at anyone, I'm gonna delete the whole thing.

Here's your chance to edit posts before I clean house.


#2277077 Milbury slams Blysma and Crosby

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 02 April 2012 - 11:46 PM

I agree with Milbury (shudders) in saying Crosby is fair game if he's going to keep getting into scrums and putting himself out there. Not because I hate the guy, but because it's not fair to have two sets of rules for the league superstar and everyone else. That's why die hard fans of sports end up hating superstars.

That being said, Milbury is a ****** and a creep.

Agreed. Cherry was saying the same thing about Crosby. And Sid has talked like he's not going to play that kind of game, but it's exactly what he's doing again.
