I take this post as a compliment.

Devils made good signings so did the rangers.
The Devils couldnt win faceoffs, thats why they signed Holik. I am responding to the original poster who basically stated that the Devils signings of Rolston and Holik is the same as the years of gaffs the Rangers did from 1998 to the lockout, and that is mindboggiling. Congrats, Sather finally got the memo that its okay to develop talent.

What? Our star goalie was chosen in the 7th round 205th overall, there were other players for sure.

I also vote to lock this thread. We don't need this crap on our board and we've avoided having a lot of retarded Devils discussions. Save the petty stuff for our Atlantic division friends.

Sign below if you agree.

its not really you, and a couple of other posters but a few of them, are just wanting to argue like a group of 12 year olds. and i agree that the thread should be locked, no ranger or devil fan should be in risk of a warning or infraction.

Im not gonna even chime in on this epic fail of a thread. I get along with quite a few Devils posters, not to say they dont have their jackasses, as we also do.

Anyways, this thread was completely doomed from the start, and am shocked it hasnt gotten the padlock yet..............

all im going to say is this:

if the rangers had signed rolston and holik posters from all over the nhl would be saying how the rangers were going back to their old ways.......but when a rangers fan says it to someone else they try and drag the rangers to their past because their present doesnt look as bright......sad

You may be brutally honest but that doesn't mean it still doesn't reek of bias. Jonothan, you certainly are not the most level headed Ranger fan on these boards.

In relation to the thread, I don't care who made the better moves...probably the Rangers because Redden and Zherdev are the best two players aquired but that doesn't mean they will work out the best.

haha the funny thing is im 16 and mostly everyone here is 21 or older. i just dont see why everyone cant be civilized and have a good convo.

i feel like kevin bacon in animal house when everyone is running around and hes just standing there, politely asking everyone to calm down.

That's the point, though. I don't like this **** on our board. It usually doesn't end up with many Debbie bashing posts, let alone threads. Makes the fanbase look petty and lame.

Age is certainly a factor, but there are more factors to consider. Sundin for example, put up 78 points last year at the age of 37. Mogilny at the same age was as slow as dirt, but he was coming off hip surgery. Physically he wasn't healthy, which is the difference between him and Rolston. Even then, he wasn't nearly as useless as people make him out to be. Was he a shell of his former self? Absolutely. However, he still had the hands and the shot to produce. In hindsight, I question whether sending Mogilny down to the AHL was the right move, but I don't know what was going on behind the scenes. Had Mogilny stayed with the Devils he probably would have cleared 55 points and not be looked upon with the disgust that most Devils' fans have of him today.

you see, if you dont make it/take it personally, a thread headed in this direction shouldnt be a problem. it was inevitable that there was going to be a rangers/devils thread that was going to turn into a pissing contest. i was just waiting for it. its fun

That sums up who made better moves. NO ONE KNOWS YET until the season starts.

This thread was clearly started as a poor attempt to hate on the Devils.
