This is an article indicative of the uninformed, moronic views and opinions of the majority of media around the country in relation to the Devils. My dad showed me this earlier and I had to bring it to the attention of my fellow Devils fans. Not that any of this will surprise you since we've always known that no matter how much success we have, we somehow are still disrespected. It's short so I'll just type it out word for word. Obviously this area still has an affection for Torts and Richards but it still turned my stomach.
From the Tampa Bay Times: (I live in the Tampa area)
Title: "Worst Loss"
The Devils absolutely deserve to be in the Stanley Cup Final, but their elimination of the Rangers was bad for the NHL overall. Sorry, New Jersey, but the Devils are a boring story, especially after you get done talking about goalie Martin Brodeur. With coach John Tortorella and stars Henrik Lundqvist and Brad Richards, the Rangers have more personalities and are just a better story. And it would have been fun to watch Stanley Cup final games in Madison Square Garden. Too bad the Rangers weren't as good as the Devils.
It hurt just to type that, but I think a 4th cup will ease the pain just a touch, don't you? I couldn't spout off fast enough about what a moron this guy is and how everything he said was wrong, and frankly offensive to Devils fans and anyone who knows anything about hockey. I could tear apart everything he said here but I'll let you guys have a crack at it. We've got some time to kill before Wednesday right? Happy Memorial Day everyone.
