RSC

Game 5 GDT: Flyers @ Devils

Recommended Posts

MVP of this series

Giourux or how ever the fvck you spell it... Boucher did nothing but stop the routine stuff. We never made Brian a factor one way or another in this series.

I even think Richards or Carter deserve a mention. Their forwards shut us down this series. I can't take anything from the Flyers - they out played us in almost ever roster spot. That's why this hurts so bad.

Oh, you're absolutely right. Though I still feel that leadership coming from a captain (such as when Scotty was captain...heh)will almost always mean more than when coming from the coach. Ya think if a coach flipped on Friesen the way Scotty did after an overtime loss to the Wings would have had the same impact? Find a leader, Lou. I'm begging you.

So true RSC. I honestly aftert this series do not think they have anybody on this team that fits that "leader" role! Zach is close, but his series was nothing special, and he has been part of the losing here too the last few seasons. Not to mention his coming out a few weeks ago and crying about the fans booing them on the Power play. After their performance this series hes lucky they werent throwing things at them !!!!

No they need some fresh blood and some fresh leadership blood!!

The player who showed the most heart in this series was Zubrus. I'm not advocating giving him the C or anything, but he's the only Devil to come out of this series with any shred of dignity...maybe Greene as well.

+1. it's obvious there's a troll around here with a hard-on for parise.

the first and only change i really want to see is Lemaire gone. After that... go back to the winning strategy we're used to. strong defense that can move the puck.

It is just a couple days after 4/20, so I may be jumped for saying this but...

Ford captain, I'd pick Andy Greene, Zach, and Kovalchuk (if he stays) would be my three Alternates. Play with that for half a year or more and see who earns it.

I was not a fan of Mr. Greene's, but he showed a lot this year in Martin's absence, and beyond. Paul Martin is too quiet and soft spoken to be a Captain.

Andy might make a good "A" not a "C". It's just too hard to tell who's a locker room guy, and who respects whom.

Three stars of the Series

1. Flyers PK

2. GIROUX

3. Boucher

Three stars for the Devils

1. Zubrus

2. ...

3. ...

I think Marty deserves some credit too. He, at least, kept the games close in game 1 and 3. Kovy should be the 3rd star as he is the best forward along with Zubrus.

Again Bingo RSC. I love the way Zubie played, and what irks me is the way he was used coming down the stretch before the playoffs, moving him all over, third line some games, with Zach and Zajac some, with Patty and Kovie, how could this guy get into any kind of rythmn?? I mean he is the only guy that seems to use his body ,and could really be a force if he did it more consistently. He isnt going to score 40 goals, but he is a very solid player. greene did play well also. Martin did not in my opinion.

Through 4 games, he was involved in 6 of the 9 Devils goals...gimme a break man, without him this series would have been alot more lopsided

His two goals were an EN and a 5-on-3 PPG. He was also held without a shot in Game 3 and didn't cash in on nearly enough of his opportunities when he actually got them...and against Brian Boucher no less. If Roger Dorn does what he usually does (miss the net) Kovy would also have two less assists.

The numbers show that he put up six points in five playoff games, but my problem with Kovy was that his numbers as a Devil looked a lot better on the stat sheet than he did on the ice. I thought he was worth taking a chance on, but I think Lou should let him walk...he'll never live up to whatever deal he gets, and though he possesses some great physical skills, from the head up he's a trainwreck...his decision-making is poor.

He did not have much time to get acclimated to a new team/teammates/system. If he comes back, a full training camp would be beneficial to him. I hope he does come back, because he would only get better with this team. His contract will be large, but I think he would take a slight paycut to stay here...time will tell.

This years exit is a lot more "alarming/sickening" rather then lasts years "upsetting/dissapointed" feeling.

Hopefully this is a major moment for the franchise to clean house and start rebuilding for the future. And please dont say, "the devils dont rebuild". They better start because its obvious this group of players are not the ones that are going to get the Devs our 4th cup.

One of our bigger off-seasons for the franchise.

True my bad, they even give death row inmates a last word lol

But he sounded clueless in that press conference. Kept saying things like we didnt see the best of this team we didnt get what we were asking of them. Classic classic example of a team that didnt want to play fo rhim.

Stan asking Kovie about Lemaire, and to Kovies credit, he praised him up and down. Saying JL taught him so much in the short time he was there. Wow talk about a good soldier.
