our big problem is positioning

positioning when we need to get the puck out... the guy with the puck can only give it back and we getting jammed behind our net most of the time... no option for a pass up front in the middle

positioning on our breakouts... the puck carrier is entering the zone and the other forward are seriously just skating behind defenders where theres no passing lane at all

we should try to have our shooter shooting from center instead of the point... too often we fvck up and the middle is wide open for their player for breakaways

i really think Oates should go... Lou has to do any kind of move to show that he's not gonna let the situation rot any longer like last year

we have Zach to prove that we're serious, we have any investors or rich bastard to somehow throw money at us, and we need to make the playoffs so we can't let it slip any longer

its the god awful first line. Parise and Kovy cant be on the same line. It's generated barely any offense and yet Pete continues with it. Once he changes the line, i guarantee the devils will be better.

And in a stunning development, Kovy scored our only goal so far.

Seriously, you and unknown poster and the rest of the idiots who hate "kovalchoke" should go jump off a very tall building. Do us all a favor. Make sure you burn ken's pile of jerseys first too.


I don't hate him moron. I never said I did. Read some of my recent posts and you'll see that I keep hoping he pulls it together. But yes, I am both disappointed and frustrated with his overall performance as a Devil, and I'm also concerned that he's looking more lost without Lemaire by the game. I've already pointed out the reasons why in other threads. Wow, he scored a goal...great, he now has a whopping five of them for the season. Awesome stuff. Guess no one's allowed to criticize a player who was supposed to make a difference here, but clearly hasn't.

As for the game...as bad as that was, and it WAS as bad as it gets, the Devils are the kind of team that can lose as ugly as it gets when they're not firing...there are nights where they can look like the worst team in the league, a de facto expansion team. The good news is that they really haven't had TOO many fugly games like this, and early on they've at least managed to avoid the prolonged slides that feel like they can happen at any time, so instead of pointing out the zillion wrongs that several players were responsible for, I'm just going to move on from this one.

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?

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.

I found this exchange between Chico and Cangialosi particularly puzzling...

CHICO: "I thought I saw Bigfoot once."
CANGIALOSI: "Oh yeah?"
CHICO:: "Yeah. Turned out it was just Bobby Holik."

They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

So he gets a complete pass on his invisible first half that season?

Don't blow that up to be more than it was. It was not that close. Devils never pulled more than six points within the last spot. It was a great run, fun to watch for sure, gave us all reason to dream a little. And other players found their games as well...even Rolston was pretty good for a while during that second half. Kovy was a key contributor, no argument, but it was NOT a solo effort on his part. The team as a whole played much better, from the goaltending on out.

I hate to say it but it feels like we need to let one of these guys go...Kovy or Zach...We need more balance and chemistry on the team or else we are going to be looking at another high draft pick.

We need to separate them, and we need Travis back, and we need a real good defense man (or 2), and I'm not sure Debo is the right coach for this team....they're not responding to him...we're playing like we did under JMac. And after every game they say the same things "we werent ready for them for some reason", "we cant turn the puck over like we've been doin", "we have to play 60 minutes of hockey...not 20"

It's not DeBoer, enough of this coaching bullsh!t.

We need Travis back, so he and Parise can play 20 minutes of defensive hockey with some offense.

Things will calm down once he's back. We still need another defenseman.

Coach needs to make some line changes and Lou needs to shake up this team. If he can't make a trade then he should promote from within. Making a trade is never easy this time of the year.

Call up Zharkov, sign Bernier to an NHL deal, scratch Boulton, send Janssen to Albany.

Honestly, Boulton and Janssen are wastes. Having them on the same line is even worse. Sestito is NOT an NHL player... we have the worst fourth line in the NHL.

Zharkov will add speed, penalty killing ability (which is not really what we need but still) and some offensive capability.
Bernier has 6 pts in 12 games in Albany and it couldn't hurt to try. He's still young, a bigger body, and has offensive capability.

The dead weight has to go. Sestito, Pelley, Fraser, Boulton Janssen. Let's give some new guys a try. You will all think I'm nuts but I don't care.

Also, Zubrus/Elias/Sykora have a combined two goals in four games, Parise has 1 in 12, Kovy is struggling, Tedenby has ZERO, and Clarkson has cooled off.

Parise-Elias-Sykora
Kovalchuk-Henrique-Zubrus
Tedenby-Carter-Clarkson
Zharkov-Zalewski-Bernier

Zalewski has 11 pts in 20 games. It couldn't hurt to give him a try. Lou is trying Sestito (3 pts in 12 games), Mills who was not good, and Pelley... It's not going to work.

For defense, Fraser needs to go. Call Urbom back up.

Fayne is given a free pass but has had 6 pts in 23 games. He can take a seat as well. If Greene is going to be out for a few games, Urbom should be given a shot.

These are all things Lou can try without having to make a trade... I'd even welcome a trade with Winnipeg to get Oduya back at this point.

You do know that Fayne leads all defenseman on this team in points right?

Whatever happened to that Parise-Henrique-Clarkson line? They were getting it done. Leave it up to NJ to change a good thing when it's going.

Maybe it's Debo's assistants, but this team looks like the keystone cops on the ice.
