  1. What I find happens to me is that when the Devils are eliminated (and we had some CRUSHING eliminations in 2002, 2008, 2009, 2010 (2004 was annoying too. Robert Esche...you kidding me?) I just needed to pull away. But when the finals got near again I tried to re-engage and get into it. Though admittedly some finals were just impossible. Ducks-Senators, who cares? Tampa/Calgary also played one of the worst 7 game series I've ever seen quality wise. That was pure rugby. (even though some late series games went into OT) Also back then hockey wasn't as over-saturated (as every sport is today) so it was kind of special to see Campbell Conference games and see Gretzky or Fleury or Coffey or even Selanne in his first dynamic year.
  2. I take solace in the fact that the effort is there pretty much every night. They are really the definition of middling. I would say talent wise, and record wise...they are exactly who they are. They won't string together any sort of winning streak the rest of the way, nor will they have any sort of prolonged bottom falling out winning streak either. It has not been a memorable year in terms of fun moments, amazing unpredictable things, statistical milestones. This has been about as water-treading and inconsequential a year as I can ever remember. And another year of Schneiders prime wasted.
  3. He can't but...generally when you attempt to change a culture of losing into winning, you want to start with a disciplined, quiet off-season to set the tone with everybody on the same page and a renewed focus on football Maybe I'm stretching this a bit putting it on Bowles but he really has no control of this team, in-season and off-season
  4. No. The Devils led that game 3-0. Isles even had an undeserved penalty shot with Tavares.
  5. Now 3 days off until we lose 4-1 in front of 10k Rag fans. These were two very winnable games we just got 0 points out of. Hynes bungled the goalie situation in the 3rd period vs the Isles (heck should've started Schneider) and today just snakebit This team has been very unlucky for a very long time. I wish we can actually win games in which we played as badly as Ottawa did tonight. But we never do.
  6. Balkin Bob Davidson retired, as did Jim Joyce (one of the better non a$$hole umps) John Hirschbeck and Tim Welke also called it quits Davidson was not a good one. Good to see him gone. Quick trigger finger, anything borderline was a balk. Hopefully CB Bucknor and Angel Hernandez is next (Hernandez I'm convinced used to deliberately miss calls just to get back at players and managers who would call him out earlier) He literally meddles in games.
  7. They're just not scoring a goal today. They'll probably get like a ton of amazing chances in the 3rd. Then hit a post, then Ottawa will come back and score some cheapy to make it 2-0.
  8. It is encouraging to see the amount of chances. We have like a games worth of shots already with 22+ minutes to go. Is this concussion protocol for Zacha?
  9. I can't put up with this. He went from All-Pro to a sh!t player overnight...now this (and Revis never had off the field problems before) I know it's offseason but this is just a continuation of the poorly disciplined Bowles era Jets.
  10. They're definitely getting shut out again oh well
  11. Yea that's not a good omen with Thor. I mean I'm all for trying to improve stamina and flexibility and all, but Thor doesn't have to keep up with the Gronkowski's regarding beastliness. You're a pitcher, you already throw about as hard as a human arm can genetically allow you to throw. I mean what is he going to crank it up to 104 or 105 now? I don't even want to see him try...
  12. The puck bouncing like a basketball. The NHL has to pretty much order the Isles back to Nassau. What a horrific hockey venue
  13. Hynes is either mentally ill or he legit tried to lose this game.
  14. Even just going into the 3rd. It was a game...the Isles don't have Roy circa 1993 playoffs back there. 4-3 game...your #1 has to start the 3rd Heck even if he had a down game I doubt this game would be worse than 3-3 now with Cory between the pipes from the getgo.
