This game was pretty important from the playoff picture. It's not over but this was an important game, and there are alot of games on our schedule coming up I dont think we can win, carolina/boston type games. If we manage to win some of those maybe we are in this, but in all honesty playoffs don't look good. Maybe broduer coming back can ignite something, at this rate were done.

The effort was there, it really was. But once again the finish wasn't...and neither was the luck. The Devils thoroughly outplayed the Rags and came up on the short side. And like me and a few other predicted, it was one of those game where we get a ton of chances, barely miss, shoot wide, or have amazing saves while the Rags get every little break
 
Lou's stupidity and negligence led to this. Re signing dumbfvck Blowhan Suckberg and not lifting a finger to replace Sykora(20+ goals) and Parise (30+ goals) well here is your result. Hedberg gives up 2 softies and his idiotic stickhandling is solely responsible for all Rag goals. We get two on Lundqvist and honestly should've either won 2-1 or gone into OT 2-2. Yes Hedberg made a few saves but all of the goals he let up were inexcusable. All of them
 
Get off your ass Lou and sit your useless captain down. Get Fayne back here. If Brodeur is good enough to backup he's good enough to start, and trade for at least a 20 goal guy to shore up the offense. Otherwise you're begging for 95-96 redux where you waited far too long to get offensive help (Housley and Andreychuk)


Be prepared to be called out for this. lol eventhough youre 110% right

And now Poni has the newest mystery injury. Hey Lou, call up Cam. That'll get 'em scoring.
 
no no, Matt Anderson! That'll do it!

Oh I know- scratch Pesonen for Tim Sestito too. We can have 4th line of Cam-Sestito-Barch. Fear the fvcking sh!t out of us.

Overall team is playing well. Defense has been suspect again. Hedberg let in a softie but made a few monster saves to redeem himself. What's Chico saying? Haha


I'm sorry screw the defense and yes moose has played poor but you can not win games with 2 goals, WE CAN NOT FINISH......
We need to score 3 or more to win most games in the NHL, we have had problems since last season that and our PP. imagine we could put in 3 or more a game! Hey Lou, what is your answer to losing Zach, try harder? It ain't working.
Yes this is a frustrating team to watch because they are close so close!

Anybody notice how many 4th liners are playing on this team right now?

 

Pesonen, Kostopolous, Carter, Bernier, Barch, Gionta

 

It's disgusting actually.

Bernier and Carter have been playing better than 4th line players.

I love all the "played really well" comments. So what happens when we lose 8 out of our next 18 and are out of the playoffs? I mean give me a break with that stuff. And if my Aunt had a d!ck she'd be my uncle!

Bernier had a nice stretch where he potted a couple goals above the norm.  They are 4th liners.  Nothing more.

So you want to dump on a team for playing hard and not getting the bounces, when they made it to the finals playing hard and getting bounces? Come on. The goals will come or they won't. But the effort is there. That's what I am looking for. Lundqvist made some fantastic saves. So did Moose.


Getting bounces is one thing and in the playoffs last year we were often outright outplaying the opposition, especially in the flyers and ranger series. Effort and shots have been there for weeks but goals and goaltending hasn't.
I'm all for effort and have been pretty patient with the team during this slide but enough is enough.

The whole cannot finish is kinda overblown at this point too. Yes the team has struggled with goal scoring but they haven't been exactly lighting the lamp the past few seasons and even last year but still won games. We really need to win these 2-1 and 1-0 games when it is a goaltending duel.

In hindsight I think Lou should have traded our 1st round pick this past season. While the draft wasn't deep and the pick was high he still could have gotten something decent in return.

This slump or bad streak or wtv how we can call it is directly caused by lousy management... And a reaction of many back to back bad decisions.

The only "good move" was to bring back Poni when zubus wetn down ( which was actually making up for fvcking around for too long, s hould have just signed him... Now we have one less pick for a player we already had.

Loktionov is obviously a steal but im not really sure Lou was aware of how great hed perform right away and that josefson would be so bad that he would have to be replaced, he was supposed to be in the AHL right now... Thats somewhat lucky for Lokti

They did not replaced zach and sykora's production, they slapped a C on our worst player so hes anchored to the ice eventhough hes terrible. and they stick with a guy who keep on costing us games in net and they keep on putting goons on our lineup eventhough we cant score.

Now we have guys like pesonen bringing down elias line and kovy pretty much played with everyone on the roster since we dont have real first line players other than elias and kovy.

Really good game by the Devils. The losses suck, but this team is playing really well. The luck will change soon enough with this effort. Excited for Thursday.

 

Playing well?  No, they played hard but they were incredibly DUMB.  It's one thing to give effort, doesn't mean much if there isn't any brainpower involved.  Moose was dumb as usual playing the puck, the defense was dumb with mistake after mistake (particularly Larsson, Zidlicky and Harrold to a lesser extent), and the forwards are retarded to begin with - shooting when they should pass and passing when they should shoot.

I love how you guys tell me to gtfo.
Listen I'm a realist.
The statistics say this team can't win games when they don't score first.
That's what I'm basing it off of.
I'm not talking out of my crack the way you all think I am.
This team is garbage and doesn't deserve to make the playoffs at this rate.
They have 3!!!! wins since Marty got hurt.
Now Poni is injured...
18 games left to turn it around but with teams like the Rangers, Isles..not looking good.

Bad teams find ways to lose these games.  The Devils found a way to lose this game, just like they've lost to a million other bubble teams/other bad teams during this malaise.

 

And anyone that thinks Marty's going to be the salve is going to be in for a nasty surprise when a rusty Marty can't get into gear quickly enough to save this season.

If we can reflect here just a bit; This team is not a playoff team. When the season started, with Marty in net and Zubrus added, this team was just playing beyond their potential. In all honesty with this roster, 9th place is probably about the right spot for this roster.

Losing Zach and Sykora was a big loss and we were teetering on the brink when we lost Zubes and Marty.

So all in all, don't be mad right ow or if we miss the playoffs, we're kind of where we should be.
