Must admit I'm shocked Versus didn't back out of our game. TB vs. Wash tonight.

Come on guys, put on a big effort tonight. Go Devils!!!

What I wouldn't give for a 7-0 thumping.

Careful what you wish for....

Let's Go Devils. I forget what wins are like.

I would be happy with a 4-1 win, followed by a 5-1 win vs Philthy Flygirls.... Hey we can dream, right

Zubrus isnt playing tonight because of an undisclosed injury. He skated yesterday and today but his foot was bothering him from an injury he sustained a two weeks ago. :doh1:

I actually don't believe that zubrus is injured. Remember last year when no matter how well he was playing he got no ice time and respect from JL? This year, he benched Tedenby for "taking a bad penalty" in the first period which actually wasn't a penalty at all and we were getting killed... now he sends down Fayne after he scores a goal and is playing better... puts Rolston back in the lineup... and FRASER?! Get ready to watch dumb penalties.... I am not thrilled about this at all.

It's a talent showcase: Rolston/Fraser for Harding/2nd round pick. :dance:

I like JL and I think that he knows what he is doing, believe it or not. On the other hand, like you said, he benches players for dumb things. Benching the best players, what is that going to prove? Rolston has 2 goals and 3 assists in 21 games I think or something like that? Fraser had an assist in 3 games while down in AHL. Ted is one of th best players right now on the roster. I do feel that Fraser is strong, and he will help the clusterfvck of Defense we have right now. Langenbrunner was punished last year....I still am not sure why and was benched. Zubrus had some tension with JL, like you said, last year. Zubrus again, is one of the best players this season. Hedberg is in net tonight against the Wild. Moose last played against Atlanta, which we won. Then JL put Marty back in net.....we got smacked around like a bunch of bitches by Carolina.

At this point, its not what JL thinks should work that is put on the ice, its what is working that should be put on the ice.
