I'm guessing an NHL .500 split.  Would be thrilled if the Devils could do more than that.  And if Schneider was named the #1 goalie by the end of those four games.

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?

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.

I know I'm stating the blatantly obvious here, but the Devils really stink at putting pucks in the net...they have been shut out five times and held to one goal five times in 27 games.  10 games out of 27 being held to one goal or less?  That's pretty fugly. 

 

That's why, as hopeful as I try to remain, it's hard to make a case for the Devils being much better than NHL .500 anytime soon this season...unless a guy like Ryder suddenly gets hot.  The Devils can only count on so many goals from guys like Janssen, Carter and Bernier. 

 

I understood why Lou signed Brunner, and I supported it, but the guy has now scored 6 goals in his last 49 NHL games.  2 SOG in his last 5 games.  More healthy scratches are coming his way.

Maybe Lou can convince Brunner to retire and go back home

thats the problem were not getting goals out of so many of our forwards.. last night was berniers 2nd.. brunner and ryder have both gone missing.. clowe is still out dont know if he would be any help in the goal department anyway since he looked pretty useless as well.. a lot of our goals are coming from our D this year and thats why we are left with such low scoring games.. henrique, zubrus and zajac dont produce frequently enough i feel like jagr and elias are the only ones that we can actually depend on to get us goals consistently.

All 3 of these teams have had their struggles, and have been pretty inconsistent much the Devils this year.  I don't know how to predict the outcome of this week.  Realistically, I can definitely see a 4 out of 8 point week.  I'm hoping for a 5+ point week from the boys though.

The Wings are very beatable.  They've been very inconsistent.

Start to slump? NJ has been very unlucky 5 on 5, soon enough NJ will start having 3 goal a game weeks.

This has been going on for too long though.  I don't disagree with your premise, but I don't see any indication that 3 goals-a-game is coming any time soon.

Yeah we haven't been scoring goals but it's not like we've been inept offensively either. So many posts hit and shots wide.

And you also can't discount what our defense has been doing...top 2 pk in the league and best in shots against. With that type if defensive performance even a slight uptick in goals scored will mean we're playoff bound.

i feel like 3 goals a game is pretty average for a good scoring team (which we are not really) but anything less is just not acceptable if you think about it.. scoring 2 goals should not be such a struggle like it is

if we had a solid finisher just that one guy to come threw for us we would be a MUCH better team i feel like thats the only thing we are lacking.. right now jagr is trying to play that role but i dont think its quite there with his age... dont get me wrong the guy is basically our best forward along with elias goal scoring wise but we would be much better with one more real solid guy like him and ten or so years younger

Ryder needs to step up. Right now, he reminds me too much of Rolston. If he doesn't (or even if he does), I could see Lou trading Fayne for a forward. Gelinas, Larsson and Greene are looking great, and if Merrill's ready, and he's looked good this time up, that's a solid 4 d. Since Zid and Volch aren't going anywhere, Sal has to get healthy at some point, and we still have Harrold, Fayne is expendable, much as I like him.

out of all of those tradable guys i agree i would want to part with fayne first.. i mean sal obviously isnt going anywhere and no one would want him and zid and volch i dont think would gain much interest either.. i wish we could ship out brunner at this point also but as i said no one will want him with what hes done in the past 45+ games only 6 goals or whatever it was..thats beyond miserable.
