And here I thought you were saying that your aching back was giving you problems jumping onto the wagon. I'd have offered to stop the wagon and put a step stool for you.....

Alright, I'll be that guy, sorry.

 

Do I want this team in the playoffs?  Absolutely (obviously).  However, what I don't want is another season where they have an admittedly enjoyable late season surge but run out of gas mid-March and end up missing by 7 or 8 points.  Because then the Devils will have made no progress toward future success, at all, and we'll find ourselves reliving this scenario next season.  

 

In an ideal world, this team has either pretty much secured a spot or are well out of the race by the deadline.  That won't happen, of course, but it'd be a damn shame if the team holds onto Jagr and other vets and misses the playoffs when they could've acquired picks to actually acquire some young offensive talent.

 

Do I believe?  Sure.  But I have realistic expectations and hopes as well.   :tomato:

I'm in. Been a fan for 22 years through the good and the bad. I can handle things getting a little rough. Besides, I have expert training for train wreck seasons... I'm a Jets fan! I survived the Rich Kotite years!

Or we have to get a center who will. If that happens, the Devils will be a playoff team easily.

That's a shame, the show's hilarious.

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT


He's not dead. In season 3 he makes his comeback with a minor league team in Myrtle Beach after his time in Mexico,. Eventually he gets called up to the bigs again at the end of the season(of the show), he's on the pitcher's mound and walks away, drives off a cliff to fake his death, then appears at April's door with bleach blonde hair and says that he's ok with losing, in which he means he loves April and wants to start a family more than he wants fame. It was a bizarre ending.

They said the show was done after that, but they brought it back for a 4th season where Kenny is now a father of two and struggling to adjust to family life, whilst simultaneously trying to create a career on TV on a sports show.

I'm in. They drive me insane sometimes, but they were looking like they were finally starting to put it together before the Zajac and Elias injuries. Marathon, not a sprint. LGD.

Right now the 2nd and 3rd place teams in our division are on pace for 82-86ish points.  I'm thinking 90 points will be enough to get in.  

 

40-28-0

39-27-2

38-26-4

37-25-6

 

Any of those records above would get us there.  This is do-able!

I'm in. It's been rough but if we put it in perspective, there are three shootout losses in there, an overtime loss, and many other close losses. It's not like they're getting blown out of the water. The Minnesota game ended pretty badly but, those will happen over 82 games...

 

I'm so in that when I get out of work, I'll be heading over to XFINITY Live for some brews and then enjoying the game at Wells Fargo in section 115, row 4 from the glass... Anybody else in here going to be at the game?!

Decision day, Friday

But in fairness I should wait until Elias and Zajac get back and play a couple of games.

Holding and hoping.

Go Devils
