i thought they played pretty goddamn decent if i can say so myself, came away with a point from a very tough sharks team...
Our fans are the only fans who could ever find (a) problem(ssssssss) with this start. we're 3-1-1 (for the most part without marty, may i add), and that's a damn good start IMO, especially after last year.
man, if this thread doesn't prove that we have some of the most spoiled, bratty fans in the NHL... (im sure we'll prove it eventually)
It has nothing to do with being spoiled. It has to do with how they got that record, and their play in those five games.
One of the wins came in regulation.
They've scored 13 goals in 6 GP...a total that's pretty bad to begin with, and of those 13, 2 don't exist (phantom goals for winning the SO), one was an empty netter, another was on a penalty shot. Scoring on the power play and getting goals from the defense continue to be issues. They have looked overwhelmed at times, which has also been an ongoing problem.
Maybe you can look at a 3-1-1 record (now 3-2-1) and blindly be happy with it, but it has a very smoke-and-mirrors feel to it.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!
Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
