They probably figure no one is watching this train wreck

Reminds me of this:

 

pdb's lack of accountability is disgusting. he scratches dmen for long periods of time for A poor game or play. but Sal and Hedberg are never held responsible for their awful play.

 

brutal

I like PDB but I agree.

I'm embarassed to be a Devil fan after that disgusting display by the mongloids in the crowd tonight.

 

And Pete's stubborness is costing the team a playoff spot.

Just figured out now that he might be a tad stubborn?   Me, even if Moose was your 100% unquestioned starter, I still don't understand why you'd want to play him 5 times in a week.    Even if he was on a roll, which is pretty much a 180 on reality.

Deboer right now is pulling a Maclean in term of looking away and aknowledging things are bad but not really doing anything about it

The Devils were doing alright up until the injuries started. And let's face it, the Devils aren't a deep team so that hurt. Also, they got some good bounces those first 14 games or so. They also got stellar goaltending. But now the Devils appear to be in a downward death spiral - and they need to pull out of it real soon or the rest of the season drama will consist solely of whether Lou is going to keep or donate our first round pick.

Let's face it, as much as it pains me, this team is really starting to miss Parise. Just the energy alone - I have to see this guy play basically every two days now that I live in Minneapolis. He was great on the PP, PK and SO. So that's a huge loss. And he fit perfectly into DeBoer's system - a high energy forechecking system. However, now that the former captain has been removed from the equation, there just isn't enough talent on this team to make up for that loss.

Throw in the fact that it feels like we have eight No. 5 defensemen on our team and perhaps one of the least talented captains in the league, and it truly gets painful at times. In short, it doesn't look good right now, but this season can still go a number of different directions from here on out. And if there is one thing I've learned after watching this team  for at least two decades, it's that predicting how a Devils' season will turn out at any one given point in time is a fool's errand.

Just when I thought I was out … they pull me back in.

Reasons to fire Debour:
Moose had already been named starter next week after losing 6 games in a row.
Oh and starting Jansen over Mattuea.
What a fvcking riot. Now it's getting funny.

I can live with the Devils losing, but I can't live with them changing nothing and hoping for different results. How can DeBoer say that Moose isn't to blame and that the offense needs to pick it up and then throw Janssen out there over Matteau? I mean honestly. And to already announce Moose as the starter for Thursday? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. What fvcking game is he watching where he thinks that's a good idea? Something has to be done and fast. This team is bad and getting worse by the minute it seems.

I think Pete's worried for whatever reason that there'll be a mutiny in the room if he benches Hedberg.  Which is problematic in itself.

Let's see...for starters

 

1) The 'Kinkaid' chants when it was 2-0 after a goal that was NOT Moose's fault

2) The cheering when he was pulled

3) The morons sitting behind me that were a steaming pile of negativity and stupidity all night.  At one point it was all I could do to avoid turning around and going off on one of them when he exclaimed how he'd never been so embarassed to be a Devil fan...as if this is worse than the MacLean garbage two years ago.  And he was chanting 'we want Kinkaid' literally all night.

Many season ticket holders in 120 are there to be comedians and 'entertain' themselves and others around them. Its unbearable some nights.

What galls me is they could have built on that finish late.  They played their best five minutes in like three weeks when they finally relaxed after getting some real goaltending.  And Kinkaid played well enough to get an actual start, where you could have at least gotten some positive momentum going with the home crowd for Thursday.

 

Now it's just going to be the same ****.  Even Rex Ryan wasn't this stubborn with Mark Sanchez when he finally pulled him.

I'm starting to think that myself. He's not stupid. He's starting moose for a reason.

It's hard to bench a 40 year old veteran I'd imagine, especially a goalie, and especially for a rookie.

Definitely. We see it as starting the hot hand. The players may see it as a friend losing his job.

I'm not saying its right. I'm just saying that Deboer is smart, and he's surrounded by smart hockey people. They know how bad Moose is playing. There may be an underlying reason we don't know of.

Just because he has a reason, doesn't mean it's not stupid.  All he's doing is making it worse for Moose, especially at home where the crowd's ready to lynch-mob him.  Not to mention he'd never play MARTY five in seven days and now Moose is basically getting that schedule.
