Lets go piles! Way to blow your chances of getting a decent draft pick FOR ONCE.It will be just another year of revolving doors on a team full of scrubs.

The Isles have shown great determination the past 4 games which I give to them all their due credit...still, it would be in the organization's best interest to free up some money by trading those who probably will not be back and accumulate some draft picks to reload the farm system. Even if they make the playoffs, this team would likely not even win the first round once again.

You do have access the the NHL standings? Or you have seen the results over the last 7 years, Right? And so you are bragging cause the Rags managed to make the playoffs and take a round?(against a team that collapsed ). I'm not shure what you are bragging about here, but I have a question for you. How does a team sign all the best guys, have the best arena, best blah blah blah, and still only be 4 points ahead of us in the standings? You should be more worried about Henrietta giving up 5 goals in a period! I've been on the Rags site and even the Rags fans don't like that signing. The Isles supposedly lost out with the free agents and are still in the mix, pathwork D and still right behind the Rags. What excactly are you so proud of? Neil Smith driving the Messiah to Vancouver?? Landing Gretsky and then putting him on a line with PJ stock?. I'd much rather root for a team that is where i live, a team that produced some of the best players ever in the game ( Not get them near the end ) A franchise that produce one of the top three HOCKEY TEAMS EVER!!!!!( see the hockey news )19 straight playoffs, the easter epic! I could go on here, Now lets see in over 60 years, One cup, constant disapointment and to top if off, in the payroll era all they did was make things worse for the league. One could argue the the Rags and Neil Smith are repsponsible for the lockout (along with the leafs and phili). If anything does'nt make sense here i will explain further but I'm shure the reaction will be something like ( DUHHH You SUCK ). Typical frustrated Rags Fan.

That's because you're such a troll that you beat the Isles fans here and set the tone. They just assumed you were a Ranger fan and they don't realize that you are just a lowly Devil fan looking to validate yourself by irritating real people. Guys, he's just a Devil fan. There's nothing to get passionate about here. They don't even matter if they win the cup.

You should go find some Devil's articles to post on... oh, that's probably difficult. Those are hard to find since nobody cares.

That would be valid if not for the fact that your original attempt wasn't taken from what I said to you last week. It's also amusing that you are the idiot trolling an opponent's site to tell them how nobody cares. I honestly couldn't tell you where to find a Devils article.
Also, you have a particular penchant for gay references. Me thinks thou dost protest too much.
