a very easy game to win for us ruined by the clear lack of chemistry. the passes never found their target on time or on place.

1-4-1 in the last six games, just wow. This team cant seem to get it together right now. Bracing myself for a very tough March. PDB has to start mixing and matching when players are out of sync, he has to realize that this is sometimes necessary.

Kovy-Elias-Bernier
Parise-Josefson-Zubrus
Sykora-Henrique-Clarkson
4th line -> AHL

I'm sure Triumph or someone could check the stats, but March hasn't been a very good month for us since 05-06.

I just feel like the GDT is not intended to be a one man sobfest. Obviously after a lame performance we're all going to rip into the team, but holy over the top... Every single time


Oh I hear you, I agree completely. But there's always that character on the boards that does something similar to this every season that I've been here, so you just kinda ignore it as beat ya can and move on.

It's part of the njdevs lifestyle, haha

Hedberg should have been in goal they would have won. I am not blaming Mary but they just don't get it done in front of him.

This one really bothered me for some reason. To go flat in an obvious trap game last Sunday at home is one thing, to be flat AGAIN a week later against a quasi-rival who you know is going to compete is something else. Especially after you've just recently lost four in a row. On the one hand it's a good thing they have a cushion, but this is also a problem twofold:

A) They're playing like they know they have a cushion now...if it wasn't for Marty this game was 5-0 easy.
B) They cannot beat the Rangers or Bruins (at least not in the first round), and thus really need to finish 6 or above.

He hasn't won the game for us either. Start Moose Tuesday not because Marty sucked or he sucks against the Rangers, blah blah blah, but maybe the team will actually show up for Moose.


lol whatever. When Marty doesn't play well he's old and needs to sit for the better of the team. When Marty does play well he still sucks cause the team doesn't play for him. How about Kovy and Elias doing something? Have they been on IR the last two weeks? Clarkson was basically the only forward I had any hope of scoring, and that's a problem when your supposed big three are supposed to be your best offensive players. But it's all Marty's fault we get shut out by a fifth-string goalie.

We went 23-8-3 with Marty starting the majority of the games but they don't play for him. God, I love this place :P

Thats fine but you cant fault Marty in this game..the goal he let in was a little soft but he more than made up for it with other saves.


Soft? That was basically a miracle shot by Okposo while Volcheknov had him tied up. He got it off in a good spot though, certainly not a soft goal. Just an unlikely one. One we ain't getting because we weren't going to the ****ing net.

Moose clearly would have given up negative 1 goals.

Maybe soft isnt the rite word...but it was one that shouldnt have happened, more defensive fault than Marty. but I am not blaming Marty at all by no means, he kept the devs in.

Whats with Clarkson making good passes of his strong board work???!!! where did that come from? this is two games in a row for him in the passing dept. that line played well

our first line just could not score, though we kept their top line silent as well

one okposo goal in a phone booth!

at that rate theyll be knocking on the door by the end of the week...

this is a typical game for the devs lately, as was the last islanders game.

i think this team can win at will, i do.

Uh, I wasn't blaming Marty for the loss. Reread my post. The team relies on him to bail them out wayyy too much.

They do this every season, at least every season since 05-06. They even did that last season. We were on a hot streak and totally slumped the last month.
In the past we've had the cushion and we don't right now. These guys need to get it in their head that they gotta play and not cruise this month. Oh, and Marty isn't of the age and skillset to bail them out all the time anymore.
