Look at the stats, don't need to say anything more. Will this work?

Travis does other things than put up points that help this team win, he hasn't played poorly this season, he just hasn't put the points up yet. We all know it's just a matter of time for him since after all he is playing with Kovalchuk.

When you ask beforehand, it won't work. You need to post it with conviction or the black devil magic doesn't work.

I think there's plenty of conviction in the post.  I kinda read it as a sarcastic jab at Travis

 

"Should I even bother posting this since it's so obvious?"

 

At least...that's how...I'm gonna go ahead and think of it..anything to get him out of this slump

What are you talking about? You don't single guys out, but you single out our 21 year old center who's yet to really play a full season, but manages just fine on the 1st PK and plays quite well defensively, while showing flashes of great intelligence on offense, i.e. Gionta's goal against the caps where JJ squeezed by two guys and passed it off before being toppled.

 

EDIT: Forgot he's 21, not 20. Oops.

Bench arguably our best center and the next captain of the Devils even though we're 2nd in the NHL? This has win written all over it.

i'm sorry. I just don't think he is good. i understand he had injuries and hasn't played a full season. but i just have a hard time believing that he will be a good player *here.. could be because he is on the 4th line? I am definitely jumping the gun, but he just seems too soft and doesn't look comfortable out there. Good thing i am not a gm.

Did Kovie get a + on that goal because his penalty expired as the puck was entering the net?

Even though he hasn't been scoring, I think he's been working the corners pretty well.  He'll get back on track.  But I am worried about JJ.  He's unnoticable out there.
