If all games were like that

Postby Scott on Sat Mar 18, 2006 10:55 pm

If all games were like that, the NHL would move up the ranks.

That had everything.

hits, fights, goals, and not stop action end to end.

Hell the refs almost gave a penalty shot. It really would have had it all then.

If the NHL were to showcase a game to gain popularity, they need not look any further than this one.

Tonights game against Toronto should be even better.

Toronto is without Belfour and they're playing their second consecutive game on the road. They lost BIG to the Rangers last night.

What it had was intensity, but plenty of mistakes!!

I'm sick of seeing teams that try to play "perfect" games every night (are you listening Wild and Devils). That game was very entertaining, and in the end that is what it's all about.

maybe to you as a fan, but to them (wild, devils) entertaining their fans is completely irrelevant, considering how jersey drew 11,000 people at the last game

i can only imagine how fun it was for a devils fan to watch them trap teams back in their cup era

Funny, the Devils hardly ever sell out now (still trying to win 1-0 every night) and never sold out when they were Cup champs either. They didn't even sell out Playoff games in those seasons.

I'm not even sure what point you were trying to make, so I apologize if I misunderstood your post. Were you saying that winning is more entertaining, no matter how slow and ugly the game is?

I used to refuse to go to Devils games. They were sooooo boring.

I'd rather watch paint dry then see the Pens win or lose a 2-1 game to the Devils.
