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 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.


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.

It's also funny that you can't spell any of our players or coaches names right. Details bro, details


If you understood what I was talking about then that's all the details you need.
This team needs to pay attention to detail, not me.

It's not benching the damn goalie, it's a 5 in 7 and logic dictates that the backup kinda has to play sometime during that time period.   And by play I don't mean 26-27 minutes.   Is he saying that he can't use the backup goalie?   Marty's gotten a blow in most if not all of the 3 in 4s.

 

It's silly and I'm not sure about the keeping the natives happy reasoning.   If anything they're going to think he's a lunkhead.

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

 

Booing Moose and chanting Kinkaid and We want Marty was disrespectful.  As my brother said, Moose has done so much for this team.  He has been stuggling, but so has the whole team.  Like Moose can't score goals on the other goalies.  Whatever was working for the Devils the last 6 minutes of the game, they need that for full 60.

was sal short shifted in the third, maybe its just wishful thinking on my part  or an offensive move because we were down.  But man o man does he have troubles with speed and quickness. hockey sense and positioning arent helping , he's outsticked and outskated constantly  can we move him to 3rd pairing when playing against fast teams (every team not named the devils)

 

btw 22 mins and kovy couldnt race crombeen to a loose puck, can you say fatigued? at least he hooked his balls good!

Not if they think that Brodeur is coming back by Saturday.  And it's not like Hedberg is getting a lot of work in these games, I think Kinkaid might get a start if Hedberg were facing more than 20 shots a game.

 

I don't agree with the keeping the natives happy reasoning either.

This team is not going anywhere if Salvador continues to play 20+ minutes a game. I know he was a big part of our run, but it's obvious that he's the weak link on D.  Volchenkov does everything Sal does and isnt caught out of position nearly as much. 

 

Goal #1- I'll admit that Hedberg gave Sal the puck with some pressure, but he's gotta get rid of it quicker. He tried to stickhandle through the Lightning player and was stuck in the mud when he got stripped.

 

Goal #2- This one infuriated me the most. On a 3 on 2, Salvador tries to step up and break up the play.  Predictably, he gets passed around which creates a 2 on and leaves Fayne and Moose vulnerable

 

Goal #3- Moose probably should have stopped this, but it was comical seeing Salvador chase Killorn around like an idiot. Yes, Killorn is a dman.

 

Goal #4- Sal makes a bad pinch, which creates a 2 on 1 and the Lightning score 10 seconds later. 

 

Maybe I'm being too hard on him, but he has been downright awful all year. The good news is, we have two more years of this and since he's the captain, he won't be benched. I don't get on Lou often, but I think this rivals bringing back Rolston. At least Rolston was coming off three straight 30 goal seasons.  Everyone knew signing Sal to a multi year deal would bite us in the ass, but in year one? Jesus

Bringing back Rolston was a way better move.  Signing Salvador is probably the worst signing he's ever done.

I'm not arguing with Lou's thought process at the time, but in hindsight, it was awful. No one could have predicted Rolston's rapid decline, but giving out a 4 year deal to a 35 year old is never a good idea

At least rolston could shoot and was brought in for a limited specific purpose. salvador was a complete over reaction to losing zach and a playoff epiphany. you cant bench him but you can hide him for 12 mins

yeah when Lou signed Rolston he was expected to bring something coming off 3 30 goals season, it didnt pan out but that's not on Lou if Rolston started to produce less.

 

Signing Salvador for that long, based on a so-so season + a playoffs run where he CLEARLY overachieved... thats a real bad decision.
