Wow..that's a lot of cursing..good work.

It's tough to please people when you score the most goals in the NHL, have the most exciting line in hockey (The A line) and you still get called boring. Tough crowd.

Also, we're looking at approx 3/4 of the NHL playing the trap now. Jersey just has the most history and success with playing it.. Especially with the new NHL..the trap will be more prevalent without hooking and holding.

Thanks for stoppping by..again.
I just find it so amusing how you and your little homer biddies go to each and every other teams GDT thread after they play you and actually have the balls to act so suprosed at how dreafully boring the other team finds games vs &^%%$ style of play.

Each and every time you act like it's the 1st time you've heard it which just makes it hysterical.

unlike those like me who despise your style because it is everything anti what hockey is all about,which is all about skating and skill on display and AGRESSIVENESS as opposed to your passive, take no chances, clog up the neutral zone, lul everybody to sleep, PASSIVE, %$^^& style,we at least all admit the effectiveness of "the system" but yet you guys can't accept the fact that it is universally viewed as the least entertaining style in the NHL and you guys are the least entertaining team in the league and maybe all of major sports.


But keep acting so suprised how much everyone despises having to endure the 60 minutes of disgusting hockey vs the Devils.

That's the difference..we are actually involved in the game...not stalking the Devils everywhere they play...Must be lonely to not have a competetitive team..

Hate to say it. but the game was sloppy...that's all..neither team played well and the Devils got lucky..I think the Lightning hit the post 6 times...so, if it was 8-2 lightning, would that of been boring?

Listen, I am not going to put up with this anymore. I don't appreciate visitors coming onto our boards and lecturing us on our opinions. And it will not be tolerated anymore. This is a board for fans of the Tampa Bay Lightning, if you don't like our opinions on our teams game last night, please feel free to leave.

Yes.

Despite what most people think, high scoring does not necessary mean entertaining atleast IMO.

Go Mike Go!

That wasn't alot of cursing.

Teams are trapping now but 3/4 of the NHL? Don't know about that. My guess would be somewhere around half with certain others (Buffalo) slipping into it when they have a lead. Florida and Jersey are the only teams (to me anyway, it's hard at times to pick it up on TV) that play a trap exclusively. Other teams do it, yes, but not all the time. Jersey has been hammered for years for it and the simple reason is they do it better than anyone else. It may win games and Cups but it is far from exciting hockey. But teams do fall into it. Hell, I even saw Ottawa do it this year down here when the Lightning were beating them in the third period. It was more of a 2-3 but it was still a trap. Edmonton plays a left wing lock and it killed Detroit last year but it was some of the most boring hockey I've ever seen. Carolina was much better at breaking it because of their team speed. Detroit was just too old and too far into a season to beat it.

I guess I have to take some responsibility for it because I made the original statement but as you say this is the Lightning board. Had I done it on the Jersey board I could see all of the hate that is flying around. It was an innocent comment on my part and one in which I think I'm entitled to.

Thanks for the post Mike.

Sorry..just get very annoyed at the constant criticism of the style of play...The only time the Devils dont' take abuse is when they're losing..

The game was zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...I don't care what stalker Devils' fans say. I spent most of the 1st period away from the tube and I can say that I didn't miss anything. I heard about the same things as usual.

The Devils are boring. Period. Always have been, always will be.

Btw, an A-line is a dress pattern. Something to think about.

How 'bout that B-19, eh? Eh?

Aside from a few minutes here and there, I didn't think the game was overly exciting either.

At time he's looked like the answer, other times (like last night) he makes you wonder. Yeah, he got the win, but both of the goals he let in were really bad. It's almost as if he needs to left in a soft goal in each of his starts before he kicks it into gear, which isn't something that will help this team come playoff time.

Don't know if any of you were able to watch the Buffalo/Vancouver game tonight but if you did you would know what an exciting hockey game looks like. Man that was awesome!

They must have changed it. I read in the recap for last night's game Lecavalier extended his point streak to 10 straight games. If they didn't change it, his point streak would have ended at 8 games.

Yes, the change was made either late Friday or early Saturday. Thus Vinny's streak was extended and Marty's streak was halted on Thursday.
