NJ Devils are a 100% stand-up team!!

LA Kings fan coming in peace.

I just wanted to tell all the NJD fans that a lot of Kings fans have to utmost respect for the Devil's team. And Marty... what an awesome goalie and Ambassador to the sport. Period. The guy is 100% class.

The Kings fans might not admit it, but the NJD had us worried. Definitely the toughest opponent in the playoffs. And all the NJD players were classy.

I won't go into botched calls or what-if's... but I just wanted to send the NJ Devils props for being a great team with a ton of character. This could have gone either way... and the NJDs were classy the whole way.

Cheers,

Kings1967

If saying the team lost all on their faults makes you feel better then fine. I don't get the need to put down people who really feel like Game 6 was a damn circus and we weren't given a fair shake in that game at all. Everyone gets Game 1 and 2 and 3, no one is denying that.

Score would of been totally different if it was a fair called game. I'm sorry but I totally believe it would of been another coin flip game.

I don't subscribe to any conspiracy theories, don't think the refs had an agenda. I can understand thinking it because NBC's biased coverage lends it self to that, but that just isn't what happened. The refs were complete morons, did a terrible job and inserted themselves into the game when they shouldn't of been. They screwed up plain and simple.

People have a right to be mad at the stripes today. Jeez.

We're not going to trade Larsson or Merrill. Maybe the other guys, but definitely not those two.

As someone who was pretty neutral this series, I believe you guys got absolutely jobbed, and not just in this game.

I know it's been vogue for a while for media and even fans to dismiss horrible calls that directly influence games and say how if they just did this, that, or the other, a good team should be able to overcome bad calls.

It's complete nonsense.

No, you shouldn't have allowed 3 PP goals, but why should you have had to kill a 5 minute penalty to begin with? The play should have been called dead after the Stoll hit, and to make matters worse, Penner forearms a Devil's defenseman right in the mouth in front of the referee right before the whistle blew.

I'm sorry, but that makes all the difference in the game. You guys were simply not given a fair shake in that period, and nothing you did afterward would have made a difference after LA scored their goals. It was a screw job of epic proportions, and I hope DeBoer comes out next week and says something about it.

Heck, even though the game was already over, what business does a linesman have standing at the circle when it's anything but an icing call when he runs into Volchenkov?

I haven't gone through the entire thread to get everyone's opinion, but man oh man I'd be bouncing off the walls right now if it was the Pens.

lol that's one of the many reasons why I don't have the main page bookmarked, only 'this' forum. Occasionally I wind up going there for the hell of it to lurk, but I ain't going there now while they're gloating.

Apparently you're not allowed to question the title change on that board either.

Thank you for the kind words. It's been hard to have this point of view here because for some reason I guess it's not classy or something to question how a game was officiated in a losing effort against a good team?

I don't have the stomach to review the plays leading up to and during the fateful powerplay, but like you said, they let so much go for the Kings during that stretch. I honestly couldn't believe what I was watching.

I'd like nothing more than to tip my hat to the winning team. There is no shame in losing, but I honestly feel like I have been robbed of that opportunity. I absolutely cannot stand behind some of the decisions that were made on the ice yesterday. I just can't.

You gotta be happy for L.A's diehard fan and let's face it they were the better team.


Loved this Devils team and I trust Lou to do everything to get us back in this position soon. Again the bar has been raised for the organization. LGD in 2013!!!!

I just wanted to say, thanks a lot for your support from the Philly series on and for the classy posts and discussion through these playoffs. You're kick*** people.

Well, I'm sure they would have named it some pro-Devil title had WE won, right? Right?

That really annoys me too. No way they would have renamed it if we had completed the comeback.

I for one will be happy when this post game thread is closed. I'm ready to bury this corpse and move on.
