As a Devils fan I agree with the sentiment that the Korpikoski call was total BS. 2 minutes at the most. But these refs are amateur hour.
The problem is that it's automatic....it's an absolutely stupid rule. 2 minutes for Boarding sure...but to automatically kick the guy out is dumb. It's not the refs fault though, it's the rulebooks fault.
It's really only 50% of the Devils. About 1/2 this team on the ice is AHL.
Thanks for the update professor. I think I know that already. I don't care if you had the entire 95 Cup Team, the Devils just aren't that good anymore, aren't considered Cup contenders anymore, have a terrible farm system, have had a terrible recent draft record, and did nothing to improve their biggest weakness from last season, which was your defense corps. They got older, slower and are pinning their hopes of making past the 1st round on Holik and Rolston.
