Yeah, and the Devils didn't sign any free agents either, that's the worst part.  It's just Elias, Zubrus, Zajac, and Henrique out there with Whitney, Matteau, Scott Timmins, Harri Pesonen - I don't really understand how Lou thinks this team can win.

 

yeah. Let's see if Pittsburgh let Crosby / Malkin walk and sign Letestu / Bolland to replace them (and overpay cause if they dont sign anyone they are in even bigger trouble). That should work.

well i dont really blame the scoring for that loss, we could have won, we scored 3. God knows if we would have won with Cory, but that would have just being a "getting away with a bad decision" for Pete.

Hockey on the radio is a real challenge but Loughlin is genuinely bad at it.  He's been doing it for years and he still isn't very good.

 

As for the game, Brodeur can't give up that first one.  Devils didn't play particularly well but they were even on chances, Carolina got a break and the Devils didn't.  They should be getting at least 1 point out of every game they score 3 goals in, but with goaltending like that, it's going to be a challenge.

You mean you don't like hearing "shot, save!" 50 billion times a game? Or having to wait 30 seconds after the play ends to find out that a goal was scored?



And fvck me. 3 games, finally get to see a goal, but they still lose. ARGHH. At least I got free tickets to Saturday's game too now. 4th time's the charm?

well thats the problem...let me explain:

a normal coach would have done this....Corey (last night), Marty (Fri), Corey (Sat), Marty (Monday in Montreal)

BUT he decided to play Marty last night...with back to back games coming Fri/Sat

so he'll most likely go with Corey/Marty/Corey in Montreal or Corey/Marty/Marty in Montreal...which will piss off either Corey, the fans or Marty

Marty has no reason to be pissed off.  So I'm willing to piss Marty off if I'm the coach.

lol yeah okay buddy that's what happened.  PS Parise, Kovalchuk, and Clarkson make $27.5M this year, so take 5 Devils and kick them off the team.  The team is obviously better, but it's not the best team in the league.

the question is when Lou will be looking to pay for a top flight forward. Obviously there are none in the system and you have to be willing to give them a ton of $$$ if you get them via fa... The easiest way to get one is how we got kovy via trade, and then you just have to hope you can resign them. Otherwise you better be willing to give out a parise like contract.

I'm an eternal optimist, but the more I see this team the more I question whether you can win in today's nhl without a big time scorer.

I guess the best hope we have is to be like a Boston who doesn't rely on one or two guys (except right now we're basically doing that with 40 yr old players), have solid d and top end goaltending.

if we're going to play this exercise, i think the team doesn't have clowe, jagr, ryder, zidlicky this year if they keep those guys.

top end free agents don't hit the market that often for lou to get. he paid for parise - zach just didn't take it. he paid for kovalchuk (well, JVB did, but you get my point).

thats why I worry about this team, we let our homegrown (scoring) talent leave over the years, and now what do we have, and what can we get?

if this organization pulls an Islander or Panther type decade of losing...you can kiss them goodbye, as we cant even fill the Rock nowadays

I know and I don't blame Lou at all for either, in fact I might argue that we are in better shape without both of those contracts... But so far (and it's a small sample yes) we haven't seen that production replaced by second tier signings of Brunner clowe and Ryder.

Jagr has been great but I don't think we can count on him being here too long and sustaining this. Geez just think where we would be without him.

At some point we will need to find top forward talent the question is when and how.

Letting our free agents walk is my biggest beef with Lou.

Those guys can make a maximum of $16.4M - you're still $11M short.  Now while I believe the team would be willing to spend more, I don't think they'd be willing to spend $11M more.

yeah and its strange because Lou was never a GM that liked or waited to get players via free agency

yet he let so many of our players get to free agency.....then walk

His "no talking during the season" policy is my biggest annoyance with him.  Although it wouldn't surprise me if he did talk to players during the season, and just said he didn't,  Lou is the most secretive GM in the league bar none.  I also wonder if Lou's strict player policies had an effect.
