I didn't watch it today so I can kinda laugh at it.    I'm gonna guess they don't practice endgames either.

 

The east is so bad we're picking up points on direct competitors by losing 3 games in a row.  LOL.    

 

Apparently they don't practice sh!t. Practice involves pizza parties and afterwards golf and hookers.

Leave the hookers out of it. At least they give 100% every night. They're good at what they do.

I think the Islanders and Hurricanes are the ones to worry about. Those are the only two teams that can bump us out. But like you said if we win Monday then the Devils are in a really good position.

Big IF. Especially, considering how tough Islanders play us. The frustrating part it seems with this Devils team it seems like it's always something that goes south. Either the oppponents score first for like 10 games in a row then Devils play pretty well then come up short, or they tie a game and miss thousands of chances before losing in shootout, or they get a lead and blow it - just never seems to be easy.

Wow again! Loss for words we suck right now! This is on the coaches

If we could only get Reid Bouchier up here, he look like he is going to be real good, him and Merrill, bring on next year already!
Because grandpa Lou ain't doing nothing this year!

Zajac is disappointing, it's really unfortunate.  He looked really good in the playoffs last year, I thought he was due for a career year.

Zajac's slow skating has really become apparent this year. Can't believe he's getting 50 mill.

Nothing more refreshing than seeing another pathetic end game collapse. This team has a deficit of skill and heart.

Whenever a team is skidding, the easy thing to do is to point to heart or desire and claim the team has little to none of it.  I disagree.

 

The team talent-wise just isn't very good right now...it wasn't well-equipped to handle losing Kovalchuk.  But they're 7-10-6 since that 8-1-3 start, and a good chunk of that 7-10-6 was with Kovy in the lineup.  When guys like Elias and Zajac aren't doing much offensively, and the Clarkson feel-good story is coming to an end...not hard to see where it's going.

 

Great that the Devils are keeping shots down most nights, because right now, that gives them the best chance to win games, because they don't score much, and their goaltending is pretty meh.  We all love Marty (well, most Devils fans do), but these days Marty isn't even a lock to stop 91% of the shots coming his way (and 91% is not terribly impressive).  He'll give us our share of vintage Marty moments, but the guy isn't a top puck-stopper anymore...he's 28th in save% this season, and his save% was .903 two years ago, .908 last season, and is now at .907 this season.  Not saying the Devils should bench him, especially for Hedberg (God-awful .886 this year), but the goaltending is more something the Devils have to overcome now, than to count on to bail them out.  The overall level of play from that position is pretty mediocre these days.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I dont know how many times the Devils were inches away from getting the puck out of our zone, but somehow managed to keep the puck in, causing an easy time for the other team to get scoring chances. (esp while we were on the PK and/or with their goalie pulled)

The team talent-wise just isn't very good right now...

Excuse me, sir. But this is no time for logic and reason. 

 

Now, back to bringing up Reid Boucher and trading Harrold for Jagr...

It's hard to believe this team crested with the home-and-home in Pittsburgh.  Losing twelve games to non-playoff teams in six weeks, winning four regulation games out of twenty, winning one road game in six weeks...these are not the numbers of a 'good' team.  And I don't want to hear about injuries the last two nights either - look at the guys out of the Tampa and Florida lineups.

I believe this team has another level. It will come, hopefully just in time for the playoffs. ;)

 

Imagine we get Montreal in the first round, the team played them pretty well this year, and the Brodeur factor will be something to watch. You never know what can happen in the playoffs I just want them to make it in.
