Excellent team game but not enough "class" to make the difference 1 v 1.  Teams that win "team efforts" usually have one or two players that can break open the game at some point during the contest.

 

The Devils have a lot of foot soldiers but not enough snipers.

The team came back from a West Coast trip and had one day off.  I was surprised they looked as good as they did.

I agree with Tri there. Again, another reason I wanted Whitney in the lineup. Sometimes guys like that are infectious.

I had no problem with the effort.  We've seen a lot worse on many occasions.

 

Merrill looked pretty good.  He definitely did not look out of place. 

 

I really hope Clowe is not completely dead weight whenever he comes back.  This team needs every goal it can scrounge together.

I did see Merrill fall into the boards and yeah he made a few plays that were shaky, but clearly the ability is there. Whether he's 'ready' or not I don't know, but I think it's a bit hasty to say he belongs in Albany all year.


He hasn't even had a full year of playing professional hockey under his belt. And it's not like he played a great deal in college. Defense is not a position most young players can be thrown into and expected to succeed. And with our glut of defensemen, theres no need for the kid to be up here looking shaky and falling into boards, wrecking his confidence and body. I would hope Merrill is down in Albany most of the season.

Merrill played OK for only his second real NHL game. I noticed him miss a couple pucks sent back his way that he needed to keep in the zone but they went past him, costing the team some needed attack time. 

In fact I noticed alot of failed passes and the team seemed lead footed most of the game, at least to me. I see others posting or PDBs interview saying that the team played well....I just didn't see it from my seats.

2 big back2back division games coming, I bet we split the games with Carolina...

For a few years now the jets just always seem to beat us. It feels bad, but I didn't really expect a win. Unfortunetly the same is true for carolina, hopefully we can change our fortunes. This team played hard last night, dont confuse scoring with effort.

Um.  The effort wasn't the problem last night.  It was simply their execution.  If you want a true lack of effort, look at the Flyers game.

It's a team that hasn't been dreadful from a record standpoint, and they score the occasional pretty goal, but in general it's definitely far from being an electrifying team...they can look ugly, old, and slow, all at the same time, and like the least likely NHL team to score a goal.  They're not going to excite much. 

 

Of course, as long as they win more than they lose, and compete for a playoff berth, they can get away with that. 

 

The lack of productions by the forwards is frightening...Jagr and Elias are each at .75 points per game (about what can really be expected from either one at best), then no other forward is even close to .5 points per game...hell, no other forward is even at .4 points per game.

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.

The guy hasn't played anything close to a full season since 2008. Not sure I want to sign up for that.

Cammalleri will want to sign his last big ticket and it will likely be very costly. Sure you might get 1-2 years of 25+25 out of him if he's healthy but is it worth it if you're stuck with a middling performer on a 5-6 year deal at 5-6 million per?

I understand where you coming from with this but I just think it's bad timing posting after last night... If anything we looked like the more offensively dynamic team and were much more aggressive and successful on the forecheck.

You can complain about a lack of finish all you want but the jets are supposed to be one of the faster teams in the league and we outplayed them in every way. They got a soft goal is all.

If we put that effort in every night (and avoid games like the kings and flyers games) we will see more wins.

He had 32 points in 44 games last year. On track for about 60 points. He's good, but I wouldn't take him for anything more than $5M since at best we'll be getting 70 games out of him each year and man did he look bad in Montreal. If you take away his two 80+ point seasons, it looks more like he's a 50-55 point guy.

i think devils need clowe back to screen some shots from the outside. create traffic.

 

on camm, devils need that game breaker; camm maybe not the guy but hes available and lou loves the last name

 

what he would look like on the devils is hard to say hes played on some pretty sh!tty teams.

 

he'd be alright to have now (cause we cant score goals) but I wouldnt go after him...I think he's past his prime...and we have enough of those types
