Hedburg's great as long as he doesnt try to handle the puck, when he does he tends to be like dp make some plays, but get burned alot and caught out of position (though less then dp does).

Are our defensemen magically going to learn how to break out?

Are our players magically going to learn that the puck goes in the back of the net?


Like I said, it's a rut.. Has Elias also magically forgotten how to score? Has our D also forgotten how to use their strengths to play effectively? No and no but when you're on a losing streak sh!t just doesn't work right.. To assume that things will just continue like this is stupid

We had to win tonight. Now that we've lost other teams have jumped over us and we've got to play cath up even harder now.

This is not a rut. This is a losing streak. It's a losing streak that's been a long time in the making even when they were winning. They were a flawed team when they tricked people into thinking they might be better then they are. What people are seeing right now is just a very flawed team showing it's colors. Want to know why they are always on the wrong end of "luck" and "bounces"? Because flawed teams and teams that are not very good always are more then good teams. Every team over 82 games will get bad bounces, but it follows bad teams around like a clowd. It's becoming an excuse with this organiztion and it has been for the last two seasons now.

Want to be somewhat optimistic? This is a bubble playoff team at best and the only reason they might sneak in is that they play in the East. It's going to take Zajac time to get back to being Zajac and the same for JJ so it may be too late even then.

Time to accept it all and understand it. I'm not sure how much more they can do to prove what they are to anyone who watches. I'm starting to believe that there are some people that refuse to understand what they are watching night in and night out. There are people who just can not bring themselves to accept this flawed team and their "heroes" who can do no wrong.

It's the same with the team's financial problems. There's just so much of a refusal to believe how much deep sh!t they are in from on ice to off ice.

What's it going to take? To some, i think it'll take forever.

Yeah a rut's when the Devils are fifteen over in January and lose four of six. This is more like our weaknesses coming home to roost when we don't have the shootout to bail us out. We've had 'bad luck' offensively for two years :P

Terrible play leads to bad luck and bad bounces. 7 SHG against is not bad luck. It's utter incompetence through and through.

it amazes me that this place watches so much hockey and yet somehow seems to learn less about the game the more they watch.

When our goalies are in a slump, the consistently cold offense will bring the team down. This team needs to wake up fast because our goalies cannot do everything.

the devils don't exactly put a cerebral product on the ice, and game center is expensive...

I have to admit, Kovy can't go a game without putting the puck in our net. It's amazing.

I remember the flak I got when I posted about his weaknesses months and probably a year ago. This guy will score goals, but will never help a team win. He isn't the only problem though and although I pound the mustard out of him, it is only because of his salary. He is very friendly signing autographs (more than I could say for Brodeur, Colin White, and even at times my boy Langenbrunner), but if people jumped on Rolston for his salary vs production than it should be a pile-on with Kovalchuk. The guy just isn't a fit for the Devils. He's best suited somewhere else.

I'd rather have so many others who could've been available than this guy.

Stating that Kovalchuk isn't a right fit for this team is a totally moot point. He's not going anywhere.

Sorry im not with you........


You are all on kovalchuk but i can't see how he can control the puck on bad bounces (hedberg pass tonight etc...)

Yes he makes mistake... but saying this guys can make our team win is a non-sense to me

He have to be use correctly and at the right spot... That's all

If you dont believe in that.. Well you forgot last year second half... ( he really make us win games)

So stop being on Kovy... Yes he makes mistakes and all that stuff but the guys is a sniper and he gave us a great effort and he want to win... More importantly he can, have and will help us win!

There are so many player on the team who play like crap that i can't see how Kovy is the one everybody is against!

You can says what you want but Kovalchuk will help us to go in the playoff this year!

And if we win the stanley cup in a near future Kovalchuk name will appear on the Conn Smythe trophy.

I'm one of his biggest Fans here, I was Ridiculed for saying that if we didnt resign him I wouldnt go to as many games. I wanted to see him on this team. loves what he brings. HOWEVER, there is no denying that he has a Propensity to make the most Egregious give-a-ways at the most inopportune times. its uncanny, and Im begining to think its a concentration issue. he needs to be more Emphatic with his recieving of passes and his passing. how many times does he think he can go cross ice in front of the slot on the PP with a pass before the jets jump it. or if the pucks on edge from moose, get your skates on it. be more emphatic!

he's going through a rough streak here but I think thats what it is a bad streak, IMO, it will improve. or at least it wont result in a guaranteed goal as it is now
