Geeze Brunner has been bad lately. And Janssen has a hockey horseshoe up his butt lately. Thus the question who will score their next goal first

This isn't fair to Brunner: the real question is will he get a goal before Cam's next hat trick (Gordie Howe or otherwise).

If Brunner had Janssen's heart, Brunner could be a 40 goal scorer.

are you implying that Brunner isn't giving 100%?

It seems to me more of an issue that he just doesn't fit in the system at all, not necessarily a lack of effort.

I'm saying Janssen is giving 200%.  Brunner's effort was never the problem.

If Eric Boulton can score a hat trick then there is no reason why Cam Janssen can't get one.

 

Brunner IMO just doesn't fit here. We don't run the type of system that he's used to. He'd be fantastic in a run n gun type of system (IE Washington.)

We were warned by wings fans of brunners hot and cold tendencies. I would be surprised if he has another tough drought of 10 games or so in him.

But for a 3rd liner at his price you kind of have to accept that, so long as he keeps giving 100% compete level.

Brunner is also suddenly getting shots on goal:  13 of them in his last four games.  He had just seven the 8 games before that. 

 

It's a nice burst, but I don't see anything that makes me think it won't be short-lived.  Brunner doesn't seem like the kind of player who will be a force, re:  consistently getting shots on goal.

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.

right, probably so. But I'll live with the scoring inconsistency if he at least continues to play well in other areas, specifically along the boards/ forecheck (IMO he's been much stronger lately) and defensively. If he buys into the system in other areas then his goal scoring or lack thereof isn't as frustrating.
