hey........not to get on Lou, but the shootout is part of the game...like it or not, he needs to get a player that can help in this department

The problem is sometimes the players who are good in it (say, like Victor Kozlov SO good) are useless everywhere else. Well, on second thought....that player might have no problem fitting in here lol.

I would still rather see more hockey played instead of a skills competition...just my opinion.

Some good news:  Marty's save% is up to .901 and Cory's save% is at .915.  If both goalies can do a little better than that, they'll at least be keeping the Devils in most games. 

 

I know the Devils looked pretty good for much of the night, but damn does this team have a hell of a time trying to put the damned puck in the net.  Hope Elias isn't out too much longer.

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.

Agreed.  The Devils were the better team imo.  Goals will come eventually if they keep putting forth efforts like tonight.

You've got a better stomach than me, this is the same game we've seen thirty times since late February.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

agreed.. they look pretty good and dominant id say in a lot of their games problem is they have good control and can keep possession for the most part as they showed tonight but they lack a major part of the game... scoring goals clearly.. they have 2/3 of what they need to be successful.

People won't be enjoying these too much 3 months from now when the writing's on the wall.   Basically if they go past sixty, pretend it's a tie and turn the game off.

I want 10 minute OT.  I don't care if it's 4 on 4 all the way through, 4 on 4 to 3 on 3, or 5 on 5.  If they need to resurface the ice, it only takes 7 minutes for the zambonis to do their work.  You're looking at an additional 30 minutes which is nothing.  You're basically making the game 3 hours long which is on par to what baseball and football games

 

1. Have a 10 minute intermission after the 3rd period.  As I said before, the zambonis only take about 7 minutes to fully resurface the ice sheet.

2. Since a normal 20 minute period with commercial breaks takes only 45 minutes or so, a 10 minute period with no commercials should take in between 15 and 20 minutes.

3. The shootout occurs way too much for people to even get excited about it anymore.  Ideally, each team should have at most 5 or 6 shootouts a year.

He's referring to the game as a whole from a HOCKEY fan standpoint.  That's a game all hockey fans could have enjoyed whether you're a Devils fan, Leafs fan, or fan of just the sport.

 

agreed.. they look pretty good and dominant id say in a lot of their games problem is they have good control and can keep possession for the most part as they showed tonight but they lack a major part of the game... scoring goals clearly.. they have 2/3 of what they need to be successful.

 

The defense is good.  Top 10 imo.

 

The goaltending is also good.  Again top 10 in the league.

 

Our forwards are actually pretty good.  The problem comes from the fact our skilled guys are young and unproven like Brunner, Tedenby, Josefson, and Loktionov.  Or they're old like Elias, Jagr, and Zidlicky.  So the reliability factor on those guys isn't there.  The guys we have in their prime like Henrique, Zajac, Ryder, Bernier, Carter, Zubrus, and Gionta are not star players.  In order for this forward group to be successful, a lot of things need to fall into place.  Things have to go perfectly, and so far they haven't.

 

We need to call Craig Mactavish.  The Devils and Oilers make good trading partners.  Sam Gagner is a guy we can use if we want someone good in shootouts.  Hemsky is also a good guy to look at, but his injuries scare me.  But I think Lou should take the chance on either player if the opportunity presents itself.

 

People won't be enjoying these too much 3 months from now when the writing's on the wall.   Basically if they go past sixty, pretend it's a tie and turn the game off.

 

I will always enjoy games like these.

When you're sitting there 8 points out from 4th and 13 from 3rd with no first round draft pick, these tight OT games will not be very much fun.

 

How they are right now, I have no idea, you're basically handed the script on a platter
