While I ought to stay away from this thread, the fans of the teams we're sandwiched with for a playoff spot are saying the same things about their teams.

Carolina is in 3rd place right now.  That says everything you need to know about this division.

it just looks like a trolling thread looking for people to comment on a rant that goes nowhere and just going to be pretty much a circlejerk

Waaaaaah...this team sucks. Give me a break. I endured the devils from opening night when they first came to NJ when really SUCKED.

You have no idea how tough it was taking sh!t from everyone when hope was either minimal or NONE.

Suck it up and show some support.

The 2000 and 2003 Cup teams D corps consisting of Stevens, Niedermayer, Daneyko, White have to be amongst the best in NHL history?

buddy i am loyal........this team just sucks so bad compared to what i grew up with.  we would just dominate teams.... now we have to scrap and claw with the fvcking columbus blue jackets. 

 

stevens and niedermayer........forget about it.  games were OVER after the first period.

 

Yeah well I want my childhood back too.. That includes Santa being real, N64 being the **** (ok still is), elementary school > job, and home cooked meals every night… But it's over and it's not coming back

 

What the Devils did from 1995 - 2003 was rare, especially in modern day hockey.. Odds are that we simply won't see that level of domination ever again.. But remember, we've been fortunate enough to see this underdog franchise do some amazing things.. Things that fans of nearly every other team in the league could only dream of.. So don't give me this self-entitled crap, because you will get no sympathy from anyone who knows how hard it is to win consistently in hockey.. The Leafs didn't make the playoffs for 8 years and haven't won a Cup in almost 50!! Imagine living and dying without ever seeing your team win a championship

 

While he may not be what he was, we still get to see Brodeur between the pipes in a Devils jersey.. The only jersey he's ever worn.. Plus, I think watching Jagr tear it up in our uniform is pretty cool too.. But the Marty thing is very special.. It's a piece of my childhood that still exists, and if for no other reason (and there are many), I watch the games because very soon Marty Brodeur will hang it up for good and I'll only have memories to go by

Lou certainly does not suck. All he did was go out and trade for the best goalie available, sign the guy who is our leading point getter, as well as call up our best defensemen of the year. Lou is not the problem

I'm assuming OP just needed a good rant. We all are a bit frustrated with the inconsistent play. Not to worry though, cuz Schneids should be getting the majority of games now (of course I also presumed PDB would be smart enough to make that happen weeks ago, too)

The average age of posters here is hovering somewhere between 17-22

 

I am shocked we do not see more of these types of posts quite frankly...

 

Eh, I don't blame age so much. Stupidity and entitlement exist no matter how old you are. I guess some of the fans who grew up during the Cup years don't know what it is to lose (I'm 28, so I'm in that group), but lots of young fans get it.

Thanks OP.  You only made me realize how special of a time it has been for me as a Devils fan in my 26 years of existence.  Ahh reflection.

Wow..this is a quality post right here.  On an off night too, I would've thought this kind of thing would surface after a tough loss (like last night).

 

The sense of entitlement..wow.  I mean, I'll admit, I was at that level of maturity about..9-10 years ago (when I was 15, mind you).  You really can't appreciate what the Devils were doing during the mini-dynasty years when you're growing up in them - you just assume that's how it is and always will be.  My Dad would always say "Cherish this, because this isn't how sports really is" and I'd always laugh at him like the arrogant little sh!t teenager I was.  My point - unless you're actually a teenager OP, you might want to reconsider your thought process regarding this team and professional sports in general..

 

I mean, DAE WONDER Y LOU HASN'T DRAFTED LEGENDARY HOF DEFENSEMEN RECENTLY?  CLEARLY NEEDS TO GO #OVERRATED

Sometimes i come on  this board and imagine how would some people react if the NHL had the same system as Soccer, where the bottom 4 teams are kicked into a minor league just because they sucked that season.

 

Or better yet your team being fined $50k, and losing 20 home games because there was a fight at the stands like what happened last sunday with Atlético-PR vs Vasco.

Hey this just in--the National Hockey League is a difficult league.  There are no pushover teams or guaranteed wins.  Every team is good and can beat any opponent even if their record is bad.

 

you do know that since the whole division sucks, they arent far from the 3rd spot right?.     

Haha seriously, we are one win out of a playoff spot--man this team is atrocious.

I don't feel very good about being one game out in a division that is very weak like Metro.

How 'bout i stay away from this one?

 

By far and away the best post you've ever made...I actually did wonder for a split-second if Brylin18 was you...you two should have plenty to PM and PMS about...

 

 

Yeah well I want my childhood back too.. That includes Santa being real, N64 being the **** (ok still is), elementary school > job, and home cooked meals every night… But it's over and it's not coming back

 

What the Devils did from 1995 - 2003 was rare, especially in modern day hockey.. Odds are that we simply won't see that level of domination ever again.. But remember, we've been fortunate enough to see this underdog franchise do some amazing things.. Things that fans of nearly every other team in the league could only dream of..

It's a piece of my childhood that still exists, and if for no other reason (and there are many), I watch the games because very soon Marty Brodeur will hang it up for good and I'll only have memories to go by

 

Santa Claus isn't real?  fvck!  Next thing you know, someone will say the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny aren't real too.  I hate surprises. 

 

I remember buying the N64 the day it came out...waiting on line for Toys 'r Us on Rte 46 in Totowa...I was banged up from the night before...the line was basically a bunch of kids 12 years old and younger with their parents, and my hungover, 26-year-old ass.  Back then people didn't camp out for days before to buy brand-new systems...you could actually get to a chain 15-20 minutes before they opened and walk out with a just-released system...such novelty.  The cashier asked me what lucky kid I was buying my 64 for.  I told her "ME!"  Brought it over to my friend's house in Clifton and me, him, and two other guys wound up playing Pilotwings 64 for the next 6 hours.  Awesome memories indeed...

 

Yeah, you pretty much nailed what most rational fans are thinking...sure, we'd all love the glory days to go on forever, but they don't, and some "fans" can't accept that.  All you can do is enjoy the good times to their fullest...especially since you know they'll go away eventually, no matter what the franchise does.

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.
