If Lou is not going to do anything, than the hell with thinking playoffs how about picks in the draft!

Man this loss hurt bad, or should I say painful!

Who cares.   Their mentality on this is fvcked up beyond all recognition.

 

God forbid we put a left shot on the RW.    If he doesn't go back, they are not going to score 5 on 5 with any consistency.

 

EDIT: Nevermind I thought you were saying something else.

Who are you going to put there?  The issue isn't putting a left shot on the RW, it's putting a left shot on the RW with a right shot on the LW.  Which is something that teams don't often do.  It hurts the breakout, and makes offensive zone play off the rush difficult too.  So again - who's going there?  

 

They're not going to score 5 on 5 with any consistency anyway.  They don't generate many shots 5 on 5.

Play a two man game with a schlub.    It's not working at all.

You are not giving me a name.  Who is playing there?  Butler's gone.  Who's going there?

Bernier fits the description of schlub.    Does it really matter, they had dumbass Nick in that role and he'll never come close to a first line role anywhere ever again?

Yeah - because Palmieri's game was actually well-suited to what the Devils wanted to do with Kovalchuk.  He drives the net - that's his game.  He's a bad passer and isn't particularly fast.  Kovalchuk comes into the zone on the left wing and likes to find the guy driving the net or the defenseman coming late.  And that line wasn't particularly good either, it just seems like they were, but they weren't.

Kovalchuk was.   If you don't have anything, you gotta use what you got.    It's not going to get Zajac's game going, he didn't do too much in that role, but they can't have Kovalchuk be this ineffective at ES and do anything.

 

sh!t, put Zids there.   He showed more competence playing the wing than anyone they'll put opposite Kovalchuk since Zubrus got hurt.

Alriiight...

Anyone else think im a moron for seeing this coming and not losing 3 days of work and dumping over $1000 for that sh!tshow?

I gotta say i was pleased with the offence they were creating more plays down the middle and were not relying 100% on dump and chase. They add good scoring chances and were dominating for the first 2 periods.

Even the Ds made good clears and played alright, we still have a terrible problems with our breakouts, our passes or not connected at all and the puck is ending up in the zone just to be picked up by the other team's Dmen...

Also eventhough it was a bonehead play i cant be mad at Elias... I mean... Its Patty.

So... Hedberg... I dont think i need to say anything.

devils are looking at the schedule and need to focus on one game at a time.

 

@sterio we must not be watching the same game.

The Devils massively outattempted Toronto at even strength after doing so against Buffalo. 

 

And no, he wasn't.  That line was totally even after Lemaire was hired.  Even in shots, even in goals.  And Kovalchuk was getting a lot of offensive zone starts (something he's not exactly getting this year).

And if you put him with Zajac now, he'd be pretty much even.   Bob Carpenter even.  Nothing ever happens.

As bad as Moose was tonight (and the past.....whenever), the problem that needs to be solved is special teams.   Can't keep going 0-5 on the PP and expect to kill off 100% of the opposing chances every night.    I'm starting to get deflated when I see the Devs up a man.   You know that if they don't score there's a world of sh*t in their heads.   I'd like to see NJ score a few PP goals and then take the pulse of the team.   Nothing would do more to cure the miserable atmosphere right now.   Kovy is a damn sniper.  Stop having him QB'ing this thing and just plant himself ala Brett Hull in the circle and bomb away (how Gomez used Mogilny).    Sheet, even if it's blocked he'll leave a hobbled dman to worry about the next blast.   Shoot the f'n puck on net Kovy!

 

Come on NJ.   The great start has made this sh*t sandwich at least edible since the playoffs are still in sight.   Let's go out tomorrow night and end the 1st period up 3.   If there's one team in the league the absolutely own, it's Tampa.   Right team.   Right time.    Get this f'n thing done.

Tampa is going to be tough with Hedberg or Kinkaid in net. Hedberg has hit rock bottom and I'm sure Kinkaid isn't looking forward to starting his first NHL game against the league's leading scorer.

I still like the idea of going for Ben Bishop to back Marty up and to help with the transition of Kinkaid and Wedgewood over the next few years. The guy is huge.

The first goal was going to be a goal anyway, he just managed to make a lowlight out of it.   Not even sure I want to blame him on it, the Leaf on the other side of the crease was wide open.

Well if he would have pokecheck the puck correctly forward and not backward between his pads it would have been alright

Those last two penalties against the leafs were garbage. I absolutely hate when sh!tty refs try to make their sh!tty game look less bias with late calls to even up the numbers when the game is out of reach.

And just 16pps in the last 5 games is horse sh!t
