If we win this series...

We're going to put up with even more excuses and complaining than we did before.

It will be like the Canadiens who cried their eyes out because Koivu got hurt by that Williams high stick. Or it will be like the Sabres fans who couldn't stop pointing out that they had injuries on defense. Or it will be like some Oiler fans who think they would have won the Cup had Ladd (not Bergeron) not injured Roloson. If we win this series, we'll get to hear all about how we won because we interfered with Brodeur the entire time.

People just love to ***** and make excuses, huh?

I don't know about that, since most agree it was a legit call. We have seen a few injured Devils in this series though

There will always be detractors. Even if we don't have John Deere winners anymore.

I was reading through the Devils board, and the posts are what prompted me to make this thread. I don't think most of them will ever get over it

Maybe my memory has gotten worse from '06, but the crying from Debbies fans was among the worst I've ever seen on HFboards. Even though most people agreed it was a good goal, some Debbies still argued until they were blue in the face that it was interference. And once they were getting proved wrong by everyone, they started with the typical "Canes are divers!", "they know nothing about hockey in "middle america" (this one was my favorite.. someone wants to act smart then they say something retarded like that), "they didn't sell out their game" or "they're so dumb they cheer on offsides or boo whenever any of their players are touched." They are easily some of the biggest bitter, whiners on HFboards when something doesn't go their way.

They can join the '99 Sabres fans then

Since this thread is full of jinx and hypotheticals, if we were to take the series and the other series go the way they're looking, here's the matchups.

Boston (1) vs. New York (7)
Pittsburgh (4) vs. Carolina (6)

Dunno how much I wanna play Pittsburgh but I definitely don't want to face Boston so I'd be ok with that. I think Ward can outplay Fleury and I think our D can outplay Gonchar and co. I'm not looking forward to seeing Sid and Malkin though. It could be another real dog-fight.

"If we win this series?" You guys must have not heard. We pissed off Brodeur so badly that we have no chance to win now.

Fairly interesting article from Marty on TSN.

Quote:
"We learned a lot from the game," Brodeur said. "We didn't play well for two periods and played really well in the third and were able to get back in the game. When we play a certain way we dominate that team. That's what we need to focus on."
http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=276078


Game 5 shall be interesting to say the least.


The Captains take on it all,

Quote:
Hurricanes veteran Rod Brind'Amour said it was just playoff hockey.

"There is something like that always going on," Brind'Amour said. "There is always one team complaining about something. That's just the way the playoffs go. I know for our team, that's not our focus.

"We're worried about this next game and moving on."

WIN? - I thought it was we will be lucky to score a goal in the next 2 games because we pissed off Marty.

Yeah, well, you can't win if you don't score goals so this is basically what I was saying.

The first step is admitting you have a problem.

I just attempted to edit your post and add some mayo. I think this is the first time i've missed my mod power.

And then I looked around and realized that all the mayo I had was already on my face.

OT in the OT. Who's making the GDT. Game Day commences in 20 min. AcidQueen and I have the wins. Laroseforthehart and The Sam have the losses. Someone with good mojo needs to get on this.

I'd hate to put up a loss on my record but I'll do it. Send me the title if you want and I'll use it. If we win I'll give you co-GDT props.
