Just send Gelinas down and see if he can blast one ala Gunner Stahl tried to do in D2.

So the guys we have on our roster are 0-26 or something like that? I mean, how the hell is this even possible? Even a poor shootout team should be scoring 1 in 4 shots.

yes. Nobody on the active roster has scored a shootout goal this year.

It's because he's using the same move for the last 20 years.

Ryder has a shot, but he doesn't have the "hands".. You need someone with balls and finesse who is not afraid to miss. Don't know if we have anyone like that.. I thought maybe Brunner fit the bill but I guess not. At this point I'm sure the mental part has become very real as well.

Sounds like Zids to me.

PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE....if only to help with the mental state and confidence aspect! This is embarrassing.

 

And dont select a guy who missed three glorious chances during the game. Youre asking for bad confidence to snowball!!

The Devils practice the shootout a lot.  It doesn't have anything to do with practice.

if it's like what we saw at the end of the VIP practice, i wouldn't go too nuts with it. it was loosey goosey - only 5 guys went maybe 4 or 5 times each. and they hardly scored at all.

 

again, is what it is - its a big time mental thing as much as it's not being able to execute.

So if they practiced with taser shocks for the guys who didn't score, it'd work better?

 

Brunner had a chance and went in too deep - Clowe just barely missed - Elias, well the less said about that the better, Elias has to be taken off the shootout.

Really, i thought Elias made some nice moves? He had Greiss in knots, he just didnt elevate the shot.

Pete DeBoer clearly has never heard Einstein's quote about the definition of insanity. At this point I can't believe he hasn't tried Zids once. I mean, I watched him score a few at the practice the other day. Same with JJ and Ruutu. Literally saw them score with my own eyes. What's the worst that could happen? None of them score? Oh well, we're in the same position as before but at least a fvcking effort was made to break the trend. The Brunner, Clowe, Elias well has long been dry.

He did use Zidlicky once, it's just that he didn't get to take his turn, so it's not like the idea hasn't occured to him.

 

The Devils have used 8 different shooters, 9 if you count Zidlicky.  Brunner only has 3 shootout attempts.  Personally I think the definition of insanity is closer to 'changing things around for no defensible reason', but that's me.

That's what's weird about DeBoer. He'll change the line-up after a win but will stick with the same guys in the shootout. I don't understand why he'll be so stubborn with some things and not with others.

I have a solution.  Every Devils should do this move from now on:

 

 

It's total crap, and should be illegal.  But it's not, so the Devils should employ it.

We'd have to be able to hit the net for that to work. Bet you $1,000 it'd go wide.
