Then they aren't good enough to make the playoffs. They can't beat Columbus at home and a NYI team that's falling apart they're in trouble.


Lesser team beat better teams quite a bit. That's looking at it way too black and white. The season is barely a quarter old.

No, I wouldn't be thrilled if the Devils stumbled against these teams, but I wouldn't assume all was lost either.

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.

They played with no heart today. none.



Well we saw a cup team in the first period after the first 2 min.

It was just like Chico or Steve said "The Devils dont want this period to end."

Parise has no excuses as his injury was 1-year ago and he's only 27 years old.


I can tell you as someone who's had a serious knee injury that it takes a long time for it to feel normal and there's no guarantee that it'll ever be 100% again.

John Maclean. He's actually the one player i thought of with Parise's injury. Mac was never really the same player after that knee injury in 1991.

But, honestly, it isn't his knee. From what i see, he's not lost a step or anything off his skating. It's his overall game. He's either not comfortable, the C is weighing and the contract is a bigger burden then it's led on. Whatever it is, i am fairly confident it is not a physical problem. The "he's rusty" excuses ended already. He looked like he was getting back into his game in early November vs the Flyers and the Jets and it's pretty much been nothing since then. Point fingers at Deboer for moving him around, but Zach isn't a stranger to center. Center is a much different position to play because it requires more involvement in the play and responsibility, but a player of his intelligence level and work ethic should not effect him that badly.

Not for nothing, but Parise has played 32 games since the end of the 09-10 season. In those 32 games, he's put up 18 points and is a -6. Now, he was playing injured in 10-11 so that's to be considered, too plus coming back off that injury...but those are pretty ugly numbers for a player who's going to be asking for and commanding 7-8 million.

Kovy was horrible tonight outside of the first period. The guy just stands in one spot and watches Parise/Henrique hustle their asses off. Everyone in the building knows hes just waiting to get off a one timer from the top of the circle so why doesnt he just move around, get in on the forecheck, use his backhand, drive the net, etc...

he's even more of a spectater in our end than in the past. no way he's 100% physically. or with deboers system. he looks confused. he has board responsibility on the breakout so it looks like he's torn between chasing the puck and playing his position. the offensive dump ins with zach look all out of sync as well, many times its way to early and the D is skating out before pressured. gotta give the super line a few more games though

Agreed. He was non-existent on the defensive side of things.

Did everyone NOT see Greene whining when his stick got ripped out of his hands and just quit on the play when that game winning or tying goal was scored??? I found that pretty unacceptable.


And was Ilya slew footed there or what? Anyone hear how he is?

Ya, Greene shouldn't have pouted and Larsson probably shouldn't have pursued the puck carrier. Two wrongs really made the play break down.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

You bitch constantly. No one takes you serious or wants to read your mindless bashing.



I bitch constantly because what is not to bitch about? I'm pretty sure you witnessed the same thing I did last night so where the fvck are the positives? I have news for you. There aren't any. Parise sucks. Kovalchuck is a bust. The team has a bunch of posers playing defense. They are a completely CRACKED shell of the former cup winning teams that they once were. You and Stero can say whatever you want. I'm entitled to my opinion and my opinion is you two are both herbs.

I can tell you as someone who's had a serious knee injury that it takes a long time for it to feel normal and there's no guarantee that it'll ever be 100% again.



Absolutely correct. I'm the same age and I play football. I had the injury back in 2009 and it took more than 1 year to feel normal. It can get back to 100% though. Just takes time and treatment.

how hard is it to try to look at the bright sides and focus on it instead of being an ass bashing back and forth eventho EVERYONE is letting him know that he's annoying, if the team is not going well we KNOW IT we're actually watching the game compared to you just watching the score and bashing out of your ass

also how hard is it to get my name right? its Sterio no Stero

you seem to be one mentally challenged man if you ask me

When the team wins 5-1 I don't see you saying those things. And Kovy is a bust? Really? You're an idiot.

The worst thing about games like this is the cliche-spewing that gets regurgitated after losses: .

well one cliche rang true and that is the one about the worst lead in hockey is a 3 goal lead!
THAT WAS TRUE! you mentally shut it down and get tentitive.

I had the misfortune of being at that game. Was sitting last row in 209. After Staal scored you could hear a pin drop. Utter disbelief all around.

Ever since that game, something died inside me regarding the way I feel about this team. It's almost as if I can't get excited about much with the Devils since that night. Still haven't gotten over it.

I really want to see the Devils win a playoff series. It's been almost 5 years since they've done that. If the team can advance even one round, I think they could do more damage. Confidence is a strange and dangerous thing.

Duhhh.. Kovy, if you really haven't noticed, is a slap shot scorer.. He can dangle extremely well too, but his slapper is elite.. That's why I think he and Zach shouldn't be on the same line - Kovy needs guys who can feed his shot consistently, and Zach needs guys to get pucks either on net so he can bang one home or get him a a breakaway pass

Both superstars with different ways of scoring, so don't get on him for that
