Canada played tremendous positional hockey on defense (on offense, less so, I felt).  The way Canada played against the US reminded me of how NJ was playing up until the break - there was just nothing there for the US offensively. 

 

Clearly you're wrong, given that Jeremy ROenick would have told me via tv broadcast that canada was playing the trap if they were playing NJD style defense!

Exactly. It makes me wonder what DeBoer is smoking.

 

He is high because he wants to show video of a perfect defensive system....really? 

 

It's just about changing it up a bit. I am sure he shows a ton of video of the Devils doing good things defensively too. The team that allows the least shots on goal a game in the league.

Geez guys.. it was just said in jest.. lighten up... 

 

You have to admit it is a whole lot easier to play prepositionally excellent defense when you swap Salvador and Volchenkov for a bunch of Canadian Stud Defenseman.

 

Of course any training film can be helpful. It just seems to me DeBoer doesn't always get the what the Devils' biggest issue are nor is his view of certain players based in reality. 

 

"OK Bryce, watch what Weber did here... and then come up the ice, get in position and shoot the puck just like that."

Bryce won't also have to worry about playing the best players from around the world every game.

Why is broduer playing? Did we throw in the towel on the season? I see no reason why CS can't mentally and physically be ready to play every game left on our schedule.

You have to remember, his career high is still 33 games.  You can't expect him to play EVERY game.

He's going to be our starting goalie next year, and playing 45+. Another year isn't going to make him anymore ready than he is now (and he is clearly ready right now).

Absolutely, but with 5 sets of back-to-backs left, Marty will get some starts here and there.

I can't argue with Marty playing one of these. You have a backup for a reason, and I would imagine that 4 games in 6 days is much more demanding than just a back to back.

As much as I'd prefer Cory play every game, Marty needs a game here and there. If he plays the Isles game, I won't be surprised.

I would 100percent agree with you if Marty was playing as a back up from super early on in the season. Marty has set this team back a few wins at this point, and we have limited time to make up those points. I feel the team is in a position where they have no choice to ride Cory hard for the remainder of the year given how close the race is and how there isn't much opportunity to make up lost ground.

 

And I honestly believe Cory can take anything we throw at him this seaosn, this is a guy that has played 2nd fiddle all his career when he should be the number 1. He won't give two fvcks, he would actually be excited to play so much (at least my guess is that he would).

Hopefully they would have traded Vanek by then.  And with no Tavares, their lineup would be depleted.

 

Speaking of Vanek, I have a trade proposal that I'd do.  You guys will probably disagree though.

 

2015 conditional 1st if Vanek re-signs

Eric Gelinas

2014 2nd

Keith Kinkaid

 

for

 

Thomas Vanek

Vanek wants to play in Minni, the trade you proposed has us basically lossing Gelinas Kinkaid and a 2nd for a guy that wants to take off to Minnesota next year.

 

Unless you have a very short memory we just lost ZP to the wild, hence my comment.

 

 

I would much rather trade for Moulson

 

Kinkaid + Fayne and a 2nd for moulson.
