Don't want that ******* carkner.

And absolutely dont want sarich or kubina. Are you guys out of your mind? These two are done. Their best days are behind them, way behind them. They are slow and useless. I'd rather have Bickel than those two.

They Constantly have to see their Rival in the local Headlines even though they have been the more successful team. It would of pissed me off too, if after Game 7 of the 1994 ECF the headlines of my local papers were " Devils Season Ends On OT on Soft Wrap Around"
Case in point. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse :

I like Carkner...would also make speedster Rupp expendable...opps...did I say speedster LOL ? IMO Rupp made his presence felt in about 2 games this season and is very expendable . Having Carkner and Prust on the roster would be enough toughness on most nights and I would sooner have speed in place of Rupp at his 1.5 Million buck contract . Even without signing Carkner...I would still upgrade Rupp ! He will be older and slower this season...can't see him getting any faster or better .

At least it doesn't say Rangers vs. Kings. But that is PRETTY BAD.

Maybe Brad Doty and Anze Kopidor have something to say about this.

It was nice the past post-season to see the Rangers and hockey get so much coverage on WFAN/Mike's on.

I am wondering if this was an aberration OR if this can build momentum and get us in the regular conversation next season?

The Devils won three cups in a relatively short period of time.. why the hell do their fans care what the newspapers say anyway?
