    This is huge about Stevens. The past say 6-7 games or so you can definately say that the Devils are a completely different team without Stevens in the line-up. I saw them against Ottawa, NYR, and yesterday against Washington. Teams come flying into the Devils’ zone with no problem now or have no fear of Stevens laying a big check on them. As much as I don’t like Scott Stevens for laying those hits on smaller players(with the exception of Lindros) when they have their heads down, but I definately don’t want to see a guy’s career shortened due to this. It still kills me seeing Mike Dunham in net for the Rangers instead of Richter, and it shows that Stevens is the heart of the Devils.

    The thing which bothered me the most was against Ottawa, the team was down 2-0 and from what I’ve heard, Devil fans began to leave the game. Those guys have given you 3 cups in 9 years, and now many start to boo them because of one shutout? Please, you don’t realize how luck you have it with a cup contender year in and year out.

    For some reason, it seems like star players from all teams are dropping like flies this year. Stevens is another star player to add to that injury list. Hopefully Stevens can get better and be ready for the playoffs. I thought I heard somewhere on TV that the injury came from getting a puck in the face at last years playoffs against Tampa Bay.

    What goes around comes around.

    Congrats Lint.

    Now whats this going to do with the All-Star game? Who’s going to replace Stevens? Colin White? Tommy Albelien? Paul Martin? Sean Brown? Maybe Niedermeyer can play both sides, he’s good enough. So many choices from the broingest team in hockey.

    I think somewhere in canada alanis morrisette is singing a song just for stevens.

    “isn’t it ironic . . . .”

  6. GretzNYR99 says:

    That’s bullshit. It just goes to show you though… one thing about Devils “fans…” 90% of em, and no offense to any on here… are cult fans, and fair-weather front-runners. They can’t even appreciate their team when they have a bad game out of how many? Geez.

    The thing that I’d be worried about if I was Louie L. would be if this was a sign of things to come when he retires, and if this post-concussion syndrome bugs him and forces him to retire… they’re screwed if they keep playing like this. They need to notch up the ante a bit.

    And… your a deushe bag.

    Don’t you mean boringest?

  9. Bretzky says:

    No, don’t YOU mean “the most boring”

  10. dkball7 says:

    Well at least I didn’t attack him personally.

  11. dkball7 says:

    Erik Assmuffin.

    Steven’s shouldn’t even be at the all-star game. Make no mistake, he is an All-Star calibre defenseman but the All-Star game is all about flash and sissy hockey…everything that Stevens isn’t. He lives off his big checks, smothering defense, and ability to just get the job done like so few can.

    The all-star game is a joke and a complete waste of time anyway. With the length of the season to stick this thing in there it just makes the star players tired. That is why a few players will get hurt just before the game.

  13. DevilInside says:

    Well put. Which is why, if I ever hear you got injured doing your job, I’ll go online and gloat about it.

  14. Blastocystosis says:

    Oh no, the all-star game is ruined. Nobody can replace the immense all-star quality hockey that Stevens plays. I mean nobody. Didn’t you see NHL2night? He’s better than BOURQUE! The Eastern Conference team is going to miss the massive scoring and play making ability that is Scott Stevens.

  15. distance7 says:

    Yeah he shouldn’t be there. Dumping the puck in from your own goal line isn’t something the All-Star game likes. Man I tell you, those sissies getting hit while they don’t have the puck, I tell you, sissy Paul Kariya in the playoffs, getting hit while he wasn’t looking with an elbow. Sissy Ron Francis the year before taking a cheap hit as well. Damn sissy players, dont’ play the game how it should, take cheap hits and watch a guy dump it in because he has no talents anymore! Woo! Go Devils!

  16. dkball7 says:

    You sir are an uneducated moron.

  17. dkball7 says:

    Bout time you start making sense!

  18. wingerxx says:

    This might open the door for Sheldon Souray to be moved up into Stevens’ place as an All-Star Game starter, since he’s having such a breakout season and he deserves it…although it’s not like the fans actually have the final say in who goes to the stupid thing anyway…

  19. Bretzky says:

    Did I gloat? I don’t think so. Good try though. It’s just the truth.

  20. Lint07 says:

    Thanx dude. Appreciated!

  21. Blastocystosis says:

    You’re either a Devils fan or you can’t sense sarcasm at all, or you’re probably just retarded. Probably all 3!

  22. TC_4 says:

    Cheers Lint buddy! Post concussion syndrome is BAD NEWS! Don’t expect Stevens to be back for at least 2 months. Maybe his case will be different/not as serious, but I know when it’s happend to guys in the past, they’ve been out for a long time.

  23. laserman says:

    LOL And you need to use a spell check…

  24. laserman says:

    Don’t be surprised if the hunter becomes the hunted…

  25. B-man says:

    Good, im glad he’s out. That guy is a piece of garbage.

  26. dkball7 says:

    And your a piece of shit.

  27. dkball7 says:

    How do you spell deushe?

  28. dkball7 says:

    At least I don’t have a screen name “Blastocystosis”. I mean, how gay is that???

  29. GretzNYR99 says:

    And I’m a douchebag because the general populus of Devils fans can’t even appreciate their damn team on one bad night out of the how many games they win? Wrong. I’m not the douchebag here, go talk to some of your fair-weather buddies who don’t know what dedication is.

  30. RichterFan says:

    too bad it wasn’t lindros that hit him.

  31. Blastocystosis says:

    This coming from the fantastic and awesome username dkball7. Do you even know what my name means? Can you do it without using google? More than likely not. What are you like 12? Only retarded kids insult people’s usernames.

  32. devfanman4 says:

    Elbow? Stevens has had 1 elbowing penalty in over 20 years in the NHL. What does that tell you about his hits?

  33. devfanman4 says:

    I’m just going to ignore all the idiotic comments above…

    This is a big blow to the Devils. You can tell their defense is pourous if you watched the last 5 games since he’s been out. If it came from the puck he took to the side of the head last year in the playoffs, why is it just coming up now? I don’t know anything about post-concussion syndrome, but being out indefinitely is bad news.

  34. distance7 says:

    It tells me that penalties don’t get called on him no matter how cheap his hits are. I hope he retires. The Devils suck.

  35. kovalev says:

    I am also glad he is out, he’s a dirty player that got exactly what he deserves,

    Who hit him anyways?

  36. laserman says:

    Even better if it was Paul Kariya…
