Some might argue that Larsson should be playing games in Albany rather than sit in the NHL, but he thinks it’s better for him right now to stay with the big club. He already played 33 games for Albany this season (four goals, 15 assists) during the lockout and thinks he still benefits from practicing with the NHL players and the Devils coaching staff.
“I played 33 games already, so I’m in game shape,” he said. “I don’t have to worry about that. I just have to stay patient now and try to take the chance when I can. ... I think it’s good to be around those guys with NHL speed. That’s why I’d rather stay there. The coaches do a really great job too to give you tips. Like Scotty (Stevens), they’ve been in the league for a long time. He knows what it takes to be a good player, so that’s good.”
What do you guys think about the idea of booing Bernier?
I for one am against it, guy played great in the playoffs, but I have a few friends who just seem like they need someone to blame.
Blame for what? It was still a great playoffs, no regrets. If it wasn't for Bernier/Carter/Gionta we might not even have survived the first round. I better not hear any boos near me or I'm going ballistic.
I'm getting super pumped for tonight... Flyer fans on the internet, friends, and so on are going crazy with trash talk... trashing Newark and the Devils and our fans... Reminding me why I hate the Flyers and their fans more than anything in the world. Let's go boys... Let's win this... and us fans need to be loud and obnoxious tonight... this is our house! I expect it to sound like it did in the playoffs!
