Hey I see a lot of people saying "shut up, and root for this team", but if you're not PO'd after tonight's game.....you have no passion for this team.

I thought they they finished off the second period strong, and that was mostly due to a bump from effectively killing off the penalty.
...then both teams went into the locker rooms, and that evaporated (obviously).

you mean this...?

im going to repeat myself here but this was technically another 3rd period meltdown.

If you took a look at our roster, took a look in the age column, and expected better than "competing most nights and in the thick of the playoff race", you're just an idiot.

Things that frustrated me this game:
2 of our guys were getting beat by 1 of theirs in the corner.
They were quick to intercept passes (thus too many turnovers)
Our fourth line really showed up tonight and killed momentum every shift
DeBoer didnt seem to interested in line matching till later in the period, personally, i think he should've moved Sykora to the fourth line and start shuffling the other combos (he hasn't shuffled lines that much at all, ironically, Lemaire would shuffle every damn minute which was also frustrating at times .... lol)
Our role players have no sense of creativity, its literally the same thing with Clarkson, its a wonder hes been scoring so much.

Anyways, I hope the guys realize that:
-they have to play 60 minutes of aggressive hockey
-Bruins were up 6-1 and trying to score a 7th, we normally pack it in after a 2 goal lead
-DeBoer has to start showing that mean streak a little more, benching players for their lethargic play

As per TG: Kovalchuk: "We’re going to have a meeting tomorrow (before practice), we’ll see what we did wrong and we’ve got to be ready for Friday."

I hope they fight each other fisticuffs and all to light a fire under their asses and point fingers at each other, each player will then have to be accountable for each shift and hold his own or face the anger of his teammates.

Oh please...it's not like they have to face the Bruins every single game. And it depends on what you mean by "going nowhere". No, they're probably not winning a Cup this year, but who was really expecting that? They do have a pretty good shot to get into the playoffs. That's a good thing for guys like Henrique, Larsson, Josefson, Tedenby, etc. A non-elite got blown out by a team that is clearly on top of its game right now. A result like that isn't a total surprise.



It still sucks..and oh just for good measure...

The Bruins will beat us 6-1. You heard it here first. I'm a pretty positive person but I'm also a realist. This team is just so terribly average and predictable right now.


I wish I could brag about me saying they'd win 6-1..but yea, no. I guess the Bruins embarrass every team they play now a days.

What a bad loss man.

Wow. Anybody see what happened in Philly after the WC? Flyers fans almost killed some Ranger fans. I'm watching the video right now, pretty scary.

Anyway. Jets lost! We're still in 8th! Yaaaaaaa!

Seriously, just shut your fvcking trap. Not just you, and I'm sorry you had to be the scapegoat for this one, but the whole collective group of butt-hurt fans who act like they're entitled to see the Devils clean the schedule in first place and waltz to a fvcking stanley cup... as if the Devils were doing you some personal injustice by losing this game.

It's a game in January against the best team in the conference and we got our butts handed to us. It happens. But all of these stupid fvcking fans who think that just because we won 3 cups in 9 years almost TWO DECADES ago, we're going to skip our way to the playoffs with a division crown and home ice advantage, need a fvcking reality check. Go look at our fvcking roster, we have talent to COMPETE, but we have a blue-line dominated by kids who are BOUND to have bad games, erratic-at-best stars and a top 6 that changes every fvcking night. Our goalie uses fvcking rogaine, our coach has barely been in place for 6 fvcking months, our superstar goes from Wayne Van Dorp to Wayne Gretzky and back every fvcking night, and our 'sniper' has a daughter that's old enough to sleep with legally... we are not going to dominate like we used to and that's just a simple fact.

Accept it that this team is a playoff contender, accept it that we won't dominate teams with any consistancy, ENJOY the fvcking season because you LOVE the team you root for, or go the hell away.



Whoa whoa whoa.
I never said this team was Stanley Cup material. I also was just proving a point by knowing how my team operates now a days. They hang with most teams, but when an elite team comes around, or if they have to travel and play a team that has been playing well you can almost guarantee that they will under perform and lose.
Now, I don't know how you feel about that, as a fan, but me, I'm pretty passionate and I think we deserve better. We have the players. So what's the problem?
If they're going to play like this, then yea sorry, they deserved to be bashed because it's hard to remain positive when they're just so predictable.
Our third periods are a fvcking disgrace. They were down 3-1 going into the 3rd and just gave up. God for bid we had a 3-0 lead going into the 3rd because it probably would have been even worse!! ! !
Anyway you're right. For now, I'll just start accepting that the team isn't good. Every time they get your hopes up, like with a win against Pitt or going up 3-0 in a game they fvcking let you down and it's just not right and something needs to change.
I've never heard of a team performing like this.
If the team is going to be like this for the next 5 years then that's just truly a shame, especially with what we're used to.
This team isn't supposed to be a bunch of losers. They haven't been since the mid 90s so there's no reason for it to start now. I'm not saying they're the Columbus Blue Jackets but the front office better start correcting the things that are wrong and quick. Because last year seems to have been the start of a major down fall.

Wait, are we in 8th now?

These guys need to get their rears in gear. It's going to be an epic fight for them to maintain 8th spot for the rest of the season.
You know for some odd reason I felt a little more at ease this time last season than I do now. I mean we were in last place, but a win was a much bigger deal and a loss was par for the course.
This season this team looks like they don't know what the hell they want to do.
