I don't like Barch either. Perhaps I'm prejudging him, but he seems like someone who will cry, and ***** if he's left off the playoff roster like Janssen, and Boulton were last year. Boulton seemed to complain a little bit too, but not to the point Barch seems like he possibly could.
When you're a replaceable dime-a-dozen goon, running your mouth off in a politically charged climate is literally the stupidest thing a person could ever do. Especially when you haven't even started with your newest employer yet.
Marty interview. Says he suffered a minor injury in scrimmage.
"Just a little break on the tip of my finger, so I can’t really do anything right now," said Brodeur, who says he’s been off the ice for about a week because of it. "If there was NHL, I’d probably play. But I’m not going to go skate with four guys with it.
At his age, rustiness is a real concern. Same with Moose. I'd rather they both play, even if it would be weird seeing him in any sweater besides the Devils and Team Canada.
I feel the same way. We've seen for years now how rusty Marty looks during the first month of the season. Going back to the last lockout when it ended in 05. The only really good first month he's had was probably in 08, but then he got injured. That was the only year since that the Devils began consecutive seasons with the same coachs/system. Wouldn't be surprised if that played into it to an extent too.
the NHL is ********, id rather play somewhere else, like my home country, win games, and make money all at the same time, how can I possibly lose? Not win the Stanley cup? Ill take that over political pressure any day
ska is playing some great hockey, hes back in russia and hes playing with tarasenko. life is good for kovi. i cant blame him for being stoked hes playing hockey somewhere. doesnt negate his contract here though. and its not like theres hockey here. so whatever the ****.
Just a random though since this thread was bumped. We really could make up a lot of scoring production from last year lost from Parise, and possibly Sykie not only from Josefson having a good year. Tedenby, Butler who both haven't been the most impressive in Albany this year(Butler has sucked really bad particularly) but from getting 10 more goals from our defensemen than we had last year. Which would bring us to 26.
Most nights our defense pretty much could have been 3 Dano's, and 3 Colin White's as far as ability to score goals go.
