Have any of these Devils fans ever heard our players in interviews talk about Hank? They all marvel about him.
Most Devil "fans" are more obsessed with hating on the Rangers than following their own team. . .

Right now I could give two ***** about the devils. They're irrelevant imo. Until they figure out what they need to make a successful squad in the new NHL I'm not interested in them. Marty never has anything nice to say about the Rangers and I dont expect him to. Though sometimes you see goaltenders having respect for opposing goaltenders, he shows none. You never hear Henrik say bad things about Brodeur.

Regardless I think the reason Devils fans are so "obsessed" with Henrik is because for years goaltending was always the one category they constantly had the upper hand in. Forget the championships that have been won because the Rangers hadn't put a quality squad together for years so there was no point in comparing that between the two rivals fans. Yeah the Devils had deeper forward and defense units for throughout the years but at least the rangers had roster players that didnt allow for it to be a huge disparity between the two roster every year. Goaltending, however, was not even close for a long time after richter had to retire. But since Henrik has been here he has been dominant over Brodeur for the most part. He has been the better goalie. IMO the devils fans are upset/jealous that brodeur is no longer the man in the tri-state rivalry.

I know there will be devils fans who will deny this or criticize this but I really believe thats why theres such an obsession with henrik.

Me, BB, Fitzy, and some others regularly post on their board. I don't know if that many people go over when the Rangers are brought up though.

Nope, you're grasping for straws here.

Jagr is so good. That goal reminded me of his goal against the Pens in game 4 where he got clocked. He's still got it.

If Jagr had stayed in the NHL last 3 years, he would be #2 all time in scoring. He still could do it. Ageless.

Oh well, guess we'll never know.

I'll still never get over that the Rangers didn't make a push for him.

Maybe he doesn't fit the mold here anymore, but in any system he's good for at least 60

EDIT (continuing rant) - He'd fit perfect here actually...he can grind on the boards better than anyone with that lower body strength. Give him linemates like Dubi or Avery who did the work down low for him and Jagr stays high looking for space to get his shot off...my god

AA - Step - Gabby
Feds - Richards - Callahan
Avery - Dubinsky - Jagr
Hagelin/Rupp - Boyle - Prust

It's not witty.

It's kind of like saying your mom's fat/poor. Old, overused, non-witty insult

Seems like every time he's touched it falls off or every team it's a rising shot.

Anyone else sick to their stomach with what Girioux has been able to do? Supposedly you need a top 5 pick to have a superstar. Oh wait we had a chance to get the current point leader in the NHL and picked Bobby ****ing Sanguenetti instead and saw a superstar go to our rivals. Right up there with the Jessiman pick.

Meh, the damage has been done, time to move on.

How about all those teams that passed up on Lundqvist?

True, but considering Giroux was taken right after Sanguinetti you have to think the Rangers were taking a long look at him and decided to pass up on him. With Lundqvist it was more of a shot in the dark, taking a chance on a guy in the 7th round.

To be fair, the Flyers had no intention of picking Giroux after Sanguinetti was chosen by the Rangers. I remember reading an article where Bobby Clarke forgot Giroux's name on the podium since they were so confident they would get Sanguinetti.
