The one thing I will say as a positive to the new playoff format is that it allows me to more earnestly root against divisional teams, as we are directly competing with just those 7.

As opposed to the past when youre directly competing with 15 other teams it's hard to decide especially this early in the season who to pull for in eastern conference games. Like there were always situations where I would want the isles to beat the caps or habs because I knew the isles weren't a direct completion for a playoff spot but those other teams were.

Now I can just sit back a root against every division opponent every night. (Unless we get into that crossover spot)

Who cares about being in playoff position roughly a quarter of the way through the season?

 

At this point, all I really want is to see is the Devils get past this road trip (hopefully with at least two points), then take it from there.  After that, 14 out of the next 23 games games will be at home.  I would love to see them get 30 points in those games.  If the Devils lose all three games of this trip in regulation (hopefully not), that would give them 49 points in 46 GP.  Not great, but they wouldn't have to tear it up to make the playoffs, and still a decent recovery after a 1-5-4 start. 

 

Honestly why don't you just put me on your ignore list instead of fvcking turning down in any possible ways anything that i post? It's like its your day job jesus christ, like an obsession.

Was just making a general point SD that I don't put that much stock in the standings at this point, and explained why.  I didn't say anything that was insulting to you.

The Bruins have to be the most overrated team in the league.

Nice shot by Clarkson, but wow you would've thought he just clinched the Stanley Cup with the call Toronto's PBP guy made, what a joke.

The Rags have been playing well.  They just can't score.

Detroit is falling apart. Florida and buffalo have been playing better hockey as of late

Losing Lidstrom turned them into a much worse team and I believe as Datsyuk and Zetterberg age, they will continue to fall.

It's absolutely amazing how much better the West is than the East.

I care and I like the guy, but it would make me happy to see him fail miserably.

you care how the player does and you "like" him... but you want to see him fail miserably just because he isnt on this team anymore? lol i dont understand why you wouldnt want to see someone you like fail miserably thats pretty harsh

Because he ain't with us, so he's against us. And plus, maybe then he gets bought out and comes back home for half price.

Right now datayuk and Henrik are playing good. Age yeah maybe they'll decline. Who knows? Dan Boyle has looked better as he gotten older it seems. Detroit will finish towards the top most apt but they won't go much further. And yeah Boston really isn't all that over rated. Their one of the best if not the best the east has. We're not like the west when it comes to having so many great teams. We got Pittsburgh and Boston and now Detroit (?). They went to the cup last year and won it recently. Can't be much over rated. Losing seguin may have hurt though. He's playing better then Erikson

That's music to my ears and every other Devils fan.  If the Rangers ever do win a Cup, we'll probably hear from JD how Sather had a [insert double-digit total]-year plan to win the Cup, and being a "meh"-ish kind of team for so long was by ingenious design.

The Islanders are really sinking....giving up lots of goals, I could see them looking for some help on D

I dont know if that Vanek trade was a good deal for them

 

(wow they must have read this post as the Isle's tie up the Pens and Vanek has two goals)
