Because hes a little *****. I would love to see him try to pull that crap on Guds or Jovo without paying the price.

That is an AWESOME idea. I think that would at least have the fans listen to the message. If they follow it, that's different, but I really like that idea.

...sorry, "crap" comment wasn't directed at you as much as it was certain Devils fans who continue to look for excuses.

I was calling for the need to get physical with him since game 1 so I agree with you 100%.

You know Soupy, when you lay off the sauce, you actually come up with some good ideas...

Even if we were to get penalized for it, that would be well worth it. Just to see Kovalchuk skating in the middle or in the corner boards getting completely laid out!!! would be absolutely perfect. And what better time to do it then Game 6, in their building, in an elimination game.

That's great that you like pity support, but why does what I said not make sense? Because you disagree with it?

If you disagree that's fine, but to say it doesn't make sense is as good as calling me a moron.

No kidding.. you can tell we're not ready for this part of the season at all. Last night they had Stanley C climb a ladder... a ladder! Really? This is the best prop you can come up with??

He's been doing that awhile now. At least a season or 2.

Last night was the first time I saw true desperation plays.

Mathias with the epic battle for the puck b4 the Marty cough up.

Gudby diving without a stick to clear a puck...

Etc etc

Will we see that desperation Tuesday, or only in a game 7?

They play that as the team comes out from intermission (I think before the second period last night). Great song.

Lol, what? It doesn't make sense because who says its pity support? You're the only one, plenty have shown genuine excitement, I don't see pity anywhere. Further, what made you jump to moron? Don't get it, wasn't saying anything close. Ease up.

I'm not trying to be a killjoy, but if the Panthers are penalized because of it, then I hope it was worth it. They sell the rats to throw after the game.

I am in agreeance though that they need to be more informative in the arena all througout the game, because apparently a lot of people aren't getting it. Announcements, cheap cardboard signs, announcements on the jumbotron, whatever they need to do.

That's not going to help, people are supposed to throw them right after the game ends if we win, they can't possibly distribute rats that fast, even if we are leading with 5 minutes to go.

Wish the casual fan had more of a brain. Wonder how many are there just to throw a rat.
The league is just being lenient right now, if it keeps happening they'll definitely start penalizing us. They're not going to put up with stoppages all the time. In Detroit, it's like one octopus after a goal, maybe twice a year. Otherwise, they wait til after the game. That doesn't take that long to clean up.

With the amount they're spending to pay for a "rat cleanup crew" they should just put that money towards more announcements during the game, it would be cheaper anyway. I would guess some people are there just to throw a rat, yeah. Which is a shame. They should also have a huge sign in Pantherland saying "DO NOT THROW RATS UNTIL AFTER THE GAME HAS ENDED".

There is no extra staff. Those are the same kids that clean the ice before and during games. They are mostly high school hockey players on local teams getting paid all yr long.

I don't think it takes that long to clean up rats. Then again it's hard to see how many actually hit the ice from tv. Lol.

They are doing announcements though. Before the game, during tv timeouts, right after a goal is scored, etc.. There was a point where the crowd even boo'd the announcer after he said throwing a rat could get you arrested.
