they still insist on waiting for the perfect shot on pp, just shoot a few it's not like you can setup a single shot in any pp.

Hedberg was atrocious tonight - team never really picked it up after the 2nd goal against.  Elias makes a bad play, but Hedberg has to make a stop - the Devils had allowed hardly any opportunities on their own net.

 

Hedberg's been the elephant in the room on this slump - yeah the offense hasn't been there, but neither has the goaltending.  I don't think Kinkaid is any better but I suspect the Devils will find that out tomorrow.

it's not about good, its about fear. with kinkaid we would be so tight on defense it would actually help. no one wants that kid to take too many shots.

Firing the coach is not going to make the Devils average roster suddenly better people. It worked once, but the talent was there.

I mean, just think out loud for a minute. If you're the coach of a team about to play against the Devils, who do you key on? Kovy - sure. Any dangerous defensemen? Not really. Elias - maybe. Clarkson, Zajac, Poni? Nope.

The minimal talent on this roster is becoming painfully obvious. When you have to hope for your 4th line to consistently produce to win games you're in trouble. Big trouble.

Harding's been bad himself this year, although who knew he was going to come up with MS?

We can certainly hope so. Its so deflating for the team and the fans to see your team outplay the opposition for most of the game (3rd was pretty bad) and have your goalie let in not 1, not 2, but 3 bad goals.

They've seen Hedberg play the last two weeks, do they really want HIM taking shots?  They're 2-7-2, I'd hope they'd be playing on their toes whoever's in net, whether it's Marty, Moose, Kinkaid, Chico...

This is no slump. We're bad from head to toe. I'm not buying that our Offense, Defense and Goaltending has suddenly hit a slump all at once.

goalie change is always a wake up call. moose and brodeur have their moments, kinkaid is scary since we don't know a thing. they will def react.

5 losses in a row is reason to worry, don't pretend it's not.

We're just fortunate that the once powerful Atlantic division is horrible this year. How we're ahead of the Rangers and Flyers is evidence of how truly awful they started out.

2 wins in their last 10.........thats a 20% winning clip.......yuck



they still insist on waiting for the perfect shot on pp, just shoot a few it's not like you can setup a single shot in any pp.

what the hell happened to our new PP system, which is to shoot more ?????????

That's what's frustrating. This team has a history of inconsistency, and it's reared it's ugly head again. Too much "squeezing the sticks" and people not playing relaxed. And every loss makes it harder to come out of. Moose needs a night off to collect himself.

Kovy is keyed on himself playing on RW.   He's not doing sh!t at that position.   If they're not going to fix that, who cares about anyone else.   They're paying a guy $11M prorated to play on his offwing when his game is left to right.   It's so fvcking stupid/stubborn it's unbelieveable.    There is no worthy LW on this team for him to be doing this.

Well so much for Hedberg being "the best back-up in the league". Hedberg was straight-up awful tonight and gave us no chance to win. The offense hasn't been great, but if we just had an average NHL goalie in net tonight, we probably would have won. Just awful. Please for the love of god let's start Kinkaid and pray that he can just play an AVERAGE game for us. That's all I want. AVERAGE. If we get outscored then fine, but losing because of terrible goaltending just sucks hard.
