Do you hate the Devils?
Thu, April 26, 2007

Three reasons we'd love to see the Senators knock off the New Jersey Devils:

1. For the way Louis Lamoriello unceremoniously dumped ex-Hull Olympiques coach Claude Julien, a good guy who is now sitting on the sidelines, at his home in Ottawa, after guiding the Devils to 102 points through 79 regular-season games. The firing was never properly explained by either the egotistical GM or Julien, who doesn't want to burn bridges, so we have no choice but to continue to see it as unfair and wrong.

2. For the sake of hockey fans everywhere. Seriously, nobody can be excited about the thought of the boring Devils in the Stanley Cup final again. Nobody can want to see their trapping butts anymore this season. Not even the winkies in New Jersey.

3. For selfish purposes.

New Jersey: Hate is enough

Vancouver sends the Senators its wishes. Hope to see you guys in the finals. Although don't expect us to cheer for you then. The Cup is OURS this year.

Don't worry Sens, the only Canadian city that won't support you is Toronto. But then again their jealous of EVERONE.

Just ask Toronto how they feel about losing the 2008 Games only to have us hosting in 2010 ;-)

No, I hate the Senators (and there are a lot of us...lots to hate). the Devils are not the same trap team they used to be- they are FAST..see Gionta/Gomez/Parise/Elias/etc. I see Ottawa trapping a lot more than New Jersey does now- either way, Buffalo will destroy either of them next round.

No I dont hate the Devils, but they can be boring to watch especially if they get a lead. New Jeresy has several talented players now so its time for them to stop playing the trap and open things up.

If the NHL really wants to have more offence then they should ban teams from playing the trap,the NBA banned goaltending to create more offence, its time the NHL followed suit. The NHL now has eupore to draw players from so lets make the game exciting again and bring back end to end action. If the NHL ever expands again let the expansion team start drafting players 1 or 2 years before they begin play so when they join the league they will have a team already assembled and wont have to bore us for years with trapping until they can compete with teams like Buffalo, Ottawa, Detroit etc.

The Devil's soccer-style game is sooooo boring. It's the exact style they attempted to ban with the rule changes. Further changes needed apparently. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Devils games r the most boring games on earth..the only reason i would want them to beat the senators is so the Rangers can give em a lil paybak for last years playoff burn. CMON RANGERS!!

I hate them because they beat my Ducks back in 2003...but I do like them "giving" us Scott Niedermayer!

The Devils are responsible for the boring hockey in the 90's and early 2000 in my opinion. They KILLED hockey after the first lockout with their 1st cup win, and we are only starting to return to half decent hockey now. On top of that, they don't even seem to really have fans in the swamp. A brutal, boring franchise. Nothing good can come with them advancing.

Sure do. Boring. Like they were playing in mud rather than on ice. Sweep 'em, Sens!
