I didn't get a chance to watch much of the game today, but was Tedenby really that bad? Was he creating anything at all offensively? I'm really rooting for him, but he can be really frustrating. I didn't see that big penalty that everyone is talking about.

 

But from what I did see: The Elias line looked pretty good. Henrique seemed to be playing better, too.

 

It's a frustrating loss, as far as I can tell from this thread, it may have been their best effort of the season so far.

That doesn't make everyone good, hell you could make the case it makes everyone mediocre, and the bad teams are truly bad.    I mean I don't know how you can take the last year of Minnesota Wild hockey and say they're "good".    They got off to a hot start in a short season and they've been "blah" ever since.


Because they have good forward depth, one of the best defensive pairings in the league, and a good goalie tandem. Minnesota is a good team. There are no bad teams in that division.

That doesn't mean they're all good and Minnesota is not good.    They're not bad either.   They're just there.   They're better than Winnipeg, though.

The Wild are running over teams territorially, they look pretty fearsome.  Although I don't know why this discussion is being had here..

That was the worst game I've ever seen from Henrique. BRUTALLY slow and unskilled. The third Ottawa goal was all his doing, sloppy turnover and a pathetic back check. He looks woefully out of shape every shift, too.

I thought Teddy looked decent, good speed and energy.

Schneider HAS to be our no. 1

Henrique was our worst forward. He doesn't seem healthy. He's just not skating very well for some reason.

Poorly balanced?  It's a team with basically two 2nd lines and two 3rd lines.  True, not having a true first line sucks, but there's no reason to be this bad.
 

 
If you're talking about tonight, that isn't even close to what's happening.


Whatever you say bud. The results speak for themselves.

You mean the 7 games worth of results, where Martin Brodeur has been handed 11 goals in 4 games and has been unable to win any of those games?

 

The offense sucks.  We knew that going in.  If you don't have a top line it's hard to score goals.  But if the goaltending is going to be this bad, the Devils don't have a chance.  Brodeur singlehandedly cost the Devils the game, and even Chico buried him tonight.

We are 7 games into the season. The Devils have looked in all aspects. They just haven't been at the same time. Games where they've looked good offensively, the defense let them down. Games where the defense looked good, the offense let them down. Tonight, the offense and defense looked good, but the goaltending was awful. Eventually everything will click at once. When that happens, the Devils will steam roll opponents. If you want a team that truly has shown no signs of life, look at the Flyers. That team has truly sucked.

Whoever thought signing Kovalchuk was a good idea cursed this team.

This team won't be in NJ much longer at this rate.
I sure as hell won't support a team like this. Someone else can go spend all that money to watch this JV lose every night.

Not sure if serious......

 

The Devils could go 0-82 and I'd still support this team.  I am committed to this team!

 

Ready to start Pete Doboer watch?

 

This started already.

He wasn't great, but not much happened with him on the ice, other than Marty giving up softies that Teddy had little to do with. First game in a long time etc. I want him to get another game or two before decisions are made.

I think patrik Elias sums up the game and the season as a whole perfectly:

 

 

“What can you say? We were awful because we’re losing?” Patrik Elias asked. “We’re not that bad. We’re not playing bad hockey. At certain times, yes, we make mistakes and maybe different guys need to play a little bit tighter, grind it out a little bit.

Gionta had a very solid game tonight so whyyyyy are we talking about this...AGAIN.

Apparently he was named the second star of the night.


Because the entire team sucked. Gionta just sucked a little less finally. He is still awful and Dipsh!t Deboer continues to play him on the PK and take face offs.
