Alot of NHL players take that hit, maybe try to draw one, but regardless get up and play. The end. He is having some off ice problems or something because it's easy to see why he gets the cry baby rap when something little like that happens.


So you are basically saying you are jealous that Crosby is making millions? :P

Seriously, he is eight-freaking-teen years old. How many 18 year old hockey players do you know that don't get heated when they get hit in the face, especially if it goes uncalled? I'm not saying Crosby is right or wrong. I am saying it shouldn't surprise anyone.

And maybe if you did make millions you would get upset because a getting hit in the face the rong way could take those millions away. :wink:

That's Andy Hilbert. He's been playing center and killing penalties and doing a good job.

The only other new guy in the lineup is Niklas Norgren #15. He's logged 4th line minutes and not suprisingly, hasn't been very noticeable.

Well, when your right your right. I just wish he would grow up like yesterday. The qoutes in the papers are from losers who did'nt make the league until they were like 23 years old, and just like them I have no idea what he is going through.

I don't think anybody would spend .50 cents to come watch me play. :D

Mike Emerick is calling the Devils telecast and made a good comment on the 'hard working' players usually getting the benefit of the doubt from the officials when they're considering making a call.

If that is the case, which I have no doubt it is......Crosby is on the other side of the room. I think refs are looking to let some of the stuff against him go, and subsequently looking for any reason what-so-ever to throw him in the box.

Unfair, yea no doubt......but Crosby (as a professional) should by now be cognizant of it and looking to change his reputation. Throwing his head back like he was just cold-cocked, then ******** at the ref for not giving him the call is not the way to do it.

There is no way in hell he should be wearing a "C" until he can get his emotions under control. It does cost this team on a regular basis.

Agreed. If that's the case though, I see them going with 3 As all next year, barring personel moves.

Great play by Koltsov for steal the puck and set up Hilbert. Horrible penalty by Nordgren to kill the momentum.

Big kill here...

I know I'm probably all alone on this one, but I think Orpik should wear the "C" next year.

The average IQ of the players on the ice drops dramatically when Orpik steps over the boards. GEEEZ

Were they just playing Kriss Kross over the PA system? That would be frightening.

No way a guy currently on the roster without an A leapfrogs everyone for the C though.

Eeyore kills me. He blasts Orpik for complaining about a call like Errey never complained.

Orpik should have been that far up ice, but he did bust his tail to get back. Initially, it looked like Orpik's stick had hooked the puckcarrier's stick before getting into the guys's waist. I think that's what he was arguing about.

He might have the heart but thats about it. I wouldnt give him an A until he either becomes a full blown NHL defensive bad ass or a reliable stay at home type. Right now his style or mold or whatever is in Limbo. At 25 im not sure which direction he is taking his career or if this is as good as he wants to get.

I see a ton more potential but hell I wasted my life so why not him! :o

We cant even dent the offensive zone. I have seen alot of bad passing tonight, and poor decision making when we have the puck.

It would be nice but is it just me that even though they are playing hard it seems as if a few of the bad habits are finding thier way back into some of this game and it just isn't going as well as it could be, if they would just play like they did the last 2 games.

No point in the TO now. They should have taken it before the offensive zone drawn with a minute and a half left. Bad move by MT.

Yep. They played a good first period, but then the energy was sucked out of them except for a few isolated spots.

The forwards just couldn't set up in the zone and when they actually did Brodeur made the big saves. Another strong game from Fleury though.
