Dallas SHOULD be trying, they're life and death with Phoenix for the ninth seed...laying an egg like this is making me root for Phoenix to get that second wild-card spot :P


I can understand Pittsburgh not competing cause they're locked into a seed but Dallas...really?

It's always a sucky season when you are eliminated without playing.

If this season was scripted, it was probably written by a couple of Ranger fans.

Fitting that it ends with another almost.  The only thing that would have been more fitting is if it ended with another abortion of a shootout.

btw I was told earlier this year Detroit 'wasn't that good'...how good do they look now, WITHOUT Datsyuk or Zett for most of the post-Olympic break?

I've never seen so many games where teams we need to lose score goals to tie with like 1:30 or less to go.

 

This team might be the unluckiest in the history of sports

Only about as many as WE lose leads with 1:30 to go :P

Selective viewing. The Devils got more than enough help this season but in the end were not able to help themselves. You can't lose your way in.

Oh well...gotta give Columbus credit...they slammed the door shut and did what they had to.  Devils had countless opportunities to make a run and never did it...it was just tease after tease after tease.  We knew a while ago they were going to have to be a .660 point% team over a long stretch to get in, and it just never happened.  And we also all knew 3-game pointless streak post-Olympic break was probably going to kill them and would be nearly impossible to overcome.  Well, it was.   

 

And sorry MB, but this is why continually pointing out the "ease" of the schedule was futile.  As fans continually pointed out, the schedule was never that much of a factor.  I was hoping the home/away imbalance correction would help them, but when the Devils went 2-2-1 in that five-game homestand (where they really needed to go 3-1-1 at bare minimum), that kind of killed that.  Post-break, the Devils went 7-4-1 at home, 3-4-2 on the road.  10-8-3 overall.  Not awful, but simply not nearly good enough, end of story.  Columbus did much better and earned their berth.

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.
