you're definitely kidding right...

not a goalie expert but he's pitching a shutout so far. My expectations are pretty pedestrian lately.

IDK about that last part. To me losing Zubrus has hurt the team during this slide than parise. There are many times I think to myself how great he would be during some of these loses just to cycle and help with the forecheck


I really don't know if a trade or coaching change will get them out of this. It's just something larger that is doing it to them than just a single player.

you may be right, he was very underrated in the breakout and neutral zone too. a big shift in possession time

The refs must have taken pity with us, making it a 4 on 4 after Cam's antics at the end there. He may very well get a suspension for leaving the ice just before the hit.

I hope they don't goon it up. I really take a lot of pride I'm the fact that the Devils don't do that in blowouts.

The bad trend I have noticed is that deboer makes alot of decisions based on seniority or last years performance. Larson didn't start the season because deboer said the other guys earned it last year. Deboer says hedberg gets the start because hes earned it with the work hes put in. Sports is fvcking highly competitive there isn't alot of room to allow people who are showing you that they aren't capable of playing at a high level anymore to continue to play just because in the past they have worked hard and played well.

 

I'm not good enough at hockey "theory crafting" to fix this team theoretically. I could fix a football team though :D. But its pretty clear that they either need to trade something for some top 6 scorign talent and hope broduer comes back soon, or chaulk this season up to a lost season and trade away some pieces for some prospects/picks and give the young guys some experience.

 

I would much rather watch us develope a goalie some of our defense and foward prospects and lose every night, then field this excuse and do the same.

I know we are all smarter than Deboer, but he decided to give Moose a chance and kept him on a short leash. Probably a smart move when you have to keep a lockerroom in check.

That wasn't much of a short leash, it's their 3rd game in 4 nights.  They're not coming back from 3-0 down.   It was a mercy pull, not an attempt to change the game

Deboer hasn't done well with player management.  His system isn't horrible but his player management hasn't been great.  Going back to last season his line combinations have been horrible.  All year long we bitched about he should split Parise and Kovy and he refused.  This year he has alienated every single one of his veteran defensmen except one, the worst one on the team.  Say what you will and I'm sure people are going to disagree because he was behind the bench that got us to the finals last year but his player management has sucked!
