Excellent sign that you think he may not be a upgrade over Foster.


It is still just 3 games in, so I'll give him the benefit of a doubt.

However when I see him on the PP I often look at him as like another Sykora on the PP.

Very low considering we have been playing pretty well. The refs have been brutal.

Wow.
Game had a little bit of everything didn't it? A pathetic 25+ minute performance, a little bit of hope, a bunch of nice saves by Brodeur. Poor old man, playing his heart out and this team continues to let him down.
Typical Devils. All and all this is who the Devils are. Not the team who was 9-1-1. They can't compete with top teams 80% of the time and IF they make the playoffs they'll be lucky to win a single game.

Oh And another hat trick? Thats just fvcking lovely. Embarrassing.

If they lose to the Caps tonight they can seriously go fvck themselves. Inconsistency is key for these bullsh!t artist. It's absolutely inexcusable to win 5 in a row and then gain only 1 point in your next 4 games, especially with the amount of talent on the team.

But hey stay positive right? We've only been losing by 1 goal each game! Hurray! And it will get easier...oh wait, no it won't.

The kid is going to be great in just a few years, but Larsson needs to sit now. i know that may screw with his confidence a little, but they may have to make that choice. I would put Tao back in the line up. Larsson, IMHO, is not playoff ready(especially Flyers or Bruins)and I really fear that with him in the lineup it may be the difference between a playoff series win or not. He is a much weaker skater than I thought, and I am sure opposing teams scout his weakness of being able to keep guys to the outside. Although this is something he will master of with due time from experience and physical growth. It's funny because when I look at Zidlicky, I see Larrson at age 42.

Honestly, what the fvck?

Another fvcking collapse.

If this team makes it to the fvcking playoffs, are we even going anywhere?

Watching this team down the stretch and getting excited is going to be a waste of time because they just are not that good.

We get bumped off the puck all night long. Our players are soft. It's just a waste of time.

fvck.



This. There's talent on the team but they really play terrible hockey sometimes.

They were down 2-0 after 1 period and everyone wrote them off. Then they stormed back and made it 3-2 and Boston tied it in the 3rd off a questionable goal involving a missed hand-pass.

I wouldn't exactly call that horrible effort.

Honestly this team is like a hot girl who just teases the sh!t out of you.

You're hanging out one day, decide to go to the gym and them BAM! Text message from a hottie. Win.
You end up hanging out with her and her hot friends that night, have a three some! Win.
The next day is even better because she takes you to her place in the Hamptons. Win.
You meet her family and they invite you on their ski trip the following day. Another win.
So now you've spent almost a week with this super hot chick and you're having a blast, you're excited for the momentum to keep rolling, you want MORE wins!
BUT after the ski trip she drops you off and things become awkward. Loss.
She stops texting you. Another loss
You're wondering what the hell happened because everything was going so well. Another, fvcking, loss.

Maybe tonight that hot chick will tease us. :giggle: :blahblah:

2 Watching this team down the stretch and getting excited is going to be a waste of time because they just are not that good.

fvck.


1 - Wow.. Spoiled much? The playoffs aren't some birthright.. Missing them SUCKED last season, so just getting in will be enough to make me happy.. I feel sorry for anyone who feels the way you do.. I guess we've had 3 or 4 acceptable seasons by your standards

2 - Good point.. I only watch the Devils during seasons when they win the Stanley Cup.. Otherwise, what's the point? I'm only a fan of a winner, it's just wasting my time to support a team through a season when they won't win it all.. They key is knowing the future before it happens

Basically what you're saying is that you're like many Rangers fans this season.. You only come out of the woodwork and support when your team is the best.. It's a "waste of your time" to support your team any other season when they aren't #1

By my count, the Devils are 22-16 in one-goal games this year. Before this streak, they were 22-12. So yeah, there's no reason to be concerned, since I'm pretty sure that winning one-goal games is not a skill (Don't mention the shootout, the Devils are good at it, but I find it hard to believe they're better than 60%)

Can't wait for us to go on a 3 game win streak so all the negative nancies can start sucking the team's d!ck again. What don't people get about the ups and downs of a season? I just don't understand the demeanor & attitude of some of you sometimes.

I'm not so sure... I am a fan of cynical, sarcastic, glass half empty Larry David-esque humor but for some reason his posts come off as more whiny & annoying then anything. It's the same thing everytime.
