Typical crock.  Devils had lots of chances - yes obviously Krejci with an open net is a better chance than anything NJ had.  But NJ had tons of great chances.

 

Lots of chances is a serious exaggeration.

If they don't get 3 out of 4 points this weekend, you might as well call the season.  Not being negative, just realistic.  Teams behind the Devils getting hot

Best loss of the season?  Really?  A loss is a loss and we lose ground on the Isles and Rag$.  You all jumped down my throat when I said bring back Sykora, but for cheap, our goal drought wouldn't be THIS bad.

There is just no such thing as a bad bounce.  It's bounced because you put it in the WRONG PLACE.  YOU"RE WRONG!  YOU ARE NOT PLAYING WELL!!!  It's not bad luck.  You guys are NOT getting it done and no one is holding you accountable.

 

Can't say I disagree on the one hand.  On the other hand, this group just ain't talented enough to take advantage of bounces.  Having Lokti fall into our laps wasn't going to make up for 50+ goals walking out the door this summer.

Oh my eye -- I heard Parise try to sell that same "bad bounce, just not going our way" sh!t as much as anyone - in fact he's one of the constants with this gentlemen sad-sack crap the teams been dishing out with regularity.

How many scoring chances do you think NJ had?  I think 15 is a good number - could well be higher.  It's one of their better offensive performances in that regard this season.

You think Sykora will get all of his fortunate goals off the faceoff dot again? He wouldnt make the difference.

This a great sentence considering we had none.

Those might be the 'only' goals Sykora got this year lol (he's always been good at that - see Game 5 2003 Finals).  But I agree, he wasn't getting 20 again and putting him in a top six role would have diminishing returns this year since he literally can't do anything else at this point.  They had to replace his production from somewhere else.

Legitimate, not counting shots (Greene didn't get a shot)... probably ten-ish.   Not so different that I disagree with you, it's just the volume we chucked didn't result in much more than they got in that regard.   With scoring chances I'm kinda like the Devils shotclock guy is with shots.   I'm not giving one up for the sake of doing it.

 

They carried play, which is good, especially against them, but it was just a very frustrating watch.   Too many shots that broke up our possession when we should be grinding it out.

Imagine Sykora facing tougher competition with no Parise and Kovy in the lineup. Disastrous! Just like whats happening to Clarkson.

I'm sorry I'm not ready to give up on my team I'm pissed I pay for Center Ice , and watching them lose while listening to the coaches say we're playing well I like the way we played = BS to the paying customer, fan!
The fans are ( an not all of them ) are saying we're screwed lets wait til next year it's a great draft, ( I may even have said this myself ) !
Well as a fan deep down in my heart I say fvck that! I'm a New Jersey Devils fan and as long as we are mathematically in it play your hearts out! Also no one on this team should be safe, you play like sh!t come the the off season fire them!
These are my opinion from a old time fan!

Bringing up Clarkson, I'd rather see slug Sykora than the Clarkson of the last twenty five games lol.  At least he wouldn't do the dumb **** like pulling up before getting to the line and going offsides in the last two minutes.

Taking a penalty trying to "defend" Pando in the offensive zone was a classic Clarkson moment.
