Just got to win 4 straight. Someone is going to do it in the Finals at some point. Why not us?(it's a rhetorical question so don't bother responding)

Time to realize this team just isn't that good. Stop blaming the refs, NBC, bad ice, etc. Too many flaws from the coaching to the players. Question is will our GM actually address these flaws this summer or stay "status quo"?


Dude. It's the Stanley cup finals. You're talking like its January 2011. They need some changes, but the fact is they beat 3 teams and now ran into a very, very good team. I think the coaching did very well and the players hit a wall.

Oh and I'm not upset at the team. They had a great run but it's time to face reality, and they're getting a good dose of it tonight..



The team is good, we just ran into a better, more rested team...with a goalie who is having one of the best postseasons of ALL TIME....

Well get back to me on that again in a month, this could be a drastically different team by then. At least in 2001, there was no real danger of the team breaking up. Yes in a vaccum, this loss (even if a sweep) isn't going to be anywhere near as annoying as that one, particualrly since Marty got outplayed by Roy. But Game 6 Rangers could be as good as it gets for a while.


Well the team actually change drastically the next year and for the better. We lost arnott, sykora, mogilny, holik and McKay but gained langs, nieuwendyk, friesen and tverdovsky in the following throw-away season and the sure before 02-03.

It will be harder to get back to the finals post-lockout but certainly far from being a terrible team.

They should have known what they were getting themselves into. 4 days to prepare. But again I'm not angry at them or some bandwagon freak. Fact is they had a great run.

We also don't don't about certain things like injuries and the such. We might want to get rid or upgrade certain areas but until this is over and we hear what is really going on I wouldn't really count on demanding changes.

Kovy and clarkson have to be playing hurt.

I would imagine that a decent percentage of our roster is suffering from some type of nagging injury. It's not that they sucked but they're beat. The Kings only played 14 games to get to the cup and mind you some of those scores were not close and the Kings controlled the play so they didn't have to play their asses of like the Devils did. We played 18 against a fast FLA team, a dominant scumbag PHI team, and a shot blocking, cheating, devious NYR club.
We've got a lot of hurt and gassed guys who gave it their all to get here. no one should be hanging anyone out to dry here.

Be grateful we're not Nucks, Blues or Yotes fans. They've never won a cup and were beat almost as bad as we are being beat. Add to the fact that the Nucks/Kings series had horrible officiating.

Major changes on a cup finalist? Let's not overreact. It sucks but it's not the Columbus blue jackets.

Yes we are a stanley cup finalist, but you can clearly see that there is something missing. Hopefully LL will find this "missing part".
But, we should all be proud of our NJ Devils who nobody saw in the SCF Finals.

Need a win, or at least some goals Wednesday.

Kovy was terrible, offense was invisible, but most important: the Kings were perfect. Seriously. They beat us on every puck battle, they anticipated our movement, they had a great PK, they finished their opportunities and Quick was outstanding. And there it is.

Maybe if we won games 1+2 it'd have been different tonight, but we didn't, so it isn't.

This is why as frustrated as I am I don't go on boards picking fights with people who are telling me to calm down.
[quote]

Notice between the two of us I'm not telling other people to calm down or telling them to burn their Devils gear because they're frustrated? ok.. great.. you can keep calm when you see your team get embarrassed. I can't. More power to ya.

Momentum is a b!tch.

Games 1 and 2 could have gone our way...and this game was up for the taking early. One big goal in any of the three games and it's a different series. But again, the execution wasn't there...hard to believe they are looking down the barrel of a sweep at this point after all the team was able to accomplish.
