i'll say it again willing to get some "ah give me a fvcking break" or "let it go".
but again... last year Deboer and the staff put a C on a guy who they called the "heart and soul" of the team, he was also part of every part of the game that made us successful in a long run.
and he's gone and Lou didnt replace ANY parts of what he was bringing either production wise or intangible wise... then slapped the C on a useless dman who should get scratch on most night.
so don't call me out on this cause it's absolutely true and anyone denying it is simply in denial now. The stats or wtv what you want to look at will agree with it. Its not "no big deal" to lose your "heart and soul" coaches doesnt throw those names around cause it sounds cute, it was legit.
OK, I'll say it:
You've beaten this dead horse to the point where there is absolutely nothing left to beat. Most Devils fans didn't think it was going to be business as usual after Parise left...a lot of us knew it was going to hurt. But life goes on. I know, you think Lou should've just been able to replace Parise or parts of Parise's skillsets in the course of one off-season. Clearly this going to take him some time. Are the Devils better off right now? No, but for some reason you seem to think you're the only one who was able to see this...like I said, I think almost to a fan we all knew losing Parise was going to hurt. Will the Devils be better off in the future? Probably, based on the absurdity of Parise's contract.
Anyway, seriously, stop acting like you're being so profound here. YES, THE DEVILS WERE HURT BY THE LOSS OF PARISE FOR 2013. And you're not the only one to see it. Lamenting it over and over and OVER again as annoyingly as possible won't change that fact either.
Can we move on now, and start wondering how the Devils turn this season around with the players that they DO have?

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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.
