MCD's skating is good, but better than Letang? I don't think so, and he's not even close to Erik Karlsson. He's better than both of em in his own zone though.That being said, MCD is great, I just don't see the speed as one of his most noticeable skills.

That they did. There is no denying that this team's will to win has been much more of a factor than in previous years.

No wonder nobody takes them seriously.

So your saying that you don't root against other teams?

Especially your main, if not one of your main rivals?

Get it right. He or she is saying that devil fans are more obsessed with the rangers losing, than they are with the devils winning. Its kind of sick, all I hear nj talk about is rangers this rangers that... its comical

McDonagh's turnover yesterday was one of the worst of the playoffs.

Watch the rest of the series w/o the homer glasses on, I dont have any because I'm niot a fan of either team.
So,by your logic, Carlson who you deem to be better should DOMINATE this series playing D against who? Right. Not Ovechkin. Not Semin. Not Backstrom. Gaborik and Richards.

Yes. that turnover was bad. Many defenseman turn pucks over. Just because you have one turnover it shouldn't retract from his OVERALL game.

Maybe you should take your Ranger hate glasses off......

From reading his posts on the Bruins board he seems to not be a Rangers hater but a McDonagh hater. Maybe he rooted for a team that is a rival of Wisconsin? He doesn't have this hatred towards Stepan though. BTW, I'm sure Lidstrom never turned the puck over. He had an otherwise amazing game.

Edit: You can tell about his hatred towards McD by the fact that in a discussion about McD's skating he throws in a turnover that has nothing to do with the discussion.

To be honest, if the Rangers aren't in it and the Devils are I do the same thing.



Ok, I did get that right. Again, were you not one of the many(I did it,too) that rooted(haha) against Pittsburgh?

At the same time though...we were rooting for ANOTHER division rival.
