this morning on the radio the caps color guy claimed he will reach 70. Right now he's on pace for 70 but I've watched a lot of caps games and I just can't image he keeps it up... A lot of lucky goals like the one tonight. I'd wager that luck evens out eventually so 60 probably but 70 would be a stretch.

Why are we still whining about Zach Parise like he's a god or something.  This is ridiculous.  Is it going to be 5 years down the road with us Devils fans, "Boy, we would have won the cup if we had Parise."  He's gone because he wanted to go, and I don't ever think about him.  The only redeeming quality he possesses that intrigues me to even remotely think about him is the fact that he is an American-born player who plays for my country in the Olympics.  He's gone

I agree there is generally a large chorus of woe is us crowd complaining we lost players and yes it can get annoying, but 2 points in their defense:

1) the fact that we decided not to invest in zach hurts more in hindsight now that the guy we did decide to invest in abandoned us. In the end were probably better off cap wise without either of them, but it still stinks to now be empty handed.

2) parise was one of the top 5 forwards ever to play for the franchise. It's not like they're regretting losing Steve Sullivan here.

Again I don't like to harp on the loss of players and ifs and buts were candy and nuts and all, but it's not ridiculous to think about it, never mind make a brief joke or comment about it durimg a 3 day break of devils hockey.

yeah i don't understand why they moved moulson for a slight upgrade at wing when they probably could have held on to him and used the same package closer to the deadline for a quality d man, or even goaltender like miller.

Because they make moves that keep then in a perpetual stage of rebuilding. It's really sad to see a once great franchise languish in obscurity for over 20 years.

Pretty lousy playoff goalie too.  Was only really great in 2007-08.  Anywhere from bad to just OK otherwise.

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'd be legitimately frightened of Pittsburgh if it wasn't for Fleury. If he has another bad Spring, they might be out goalie hunting or stop gapping for a year. I might want to lock up CS a year early if i were Lou.

I thought they were destined for the SCF when they decided to go with Vokoun.  Vokoun made that team so much better.
