2011-12 team was pretty shaky through 25 games. They were pretty solid after that. Marty also picked it up in the second half.
That team had guys who could put pucks in the net, either through skill (Kovy and Parise) or lots of puck luck (Clarkson). Right now I don't see that one forward who can be counted on to carry the scoring load, and it seems like whenever one or two forwards get it going, the other ones go cold.
They're going to have to find a way to score 2-3 goals per game by committee (at least now they get some goals from their defenseman), and hope they can steal some points from the games where they only score one goal...I just don't see this team improving a whole lot offensively. On that front, I think they're going to have to work with what they've got.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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.
