Boston: 2

Buffalo: 1

Carolina: 2

Columbus: 1

Calgary: 1

Colorado: 1

Dallas: 1

Detroit: 2

Edmonton: 1

Florida: 2

Sorry, am I misunderstand something or are you predicting 3 point games over the isles and Washington? Edit: clearly that number refers to games remaining against... Don't drink and post kids Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk

They're not winning 20 out of 32. They'll win like 14-15 of those games with some points for shootout losses.

And that will likely not be good enough. If they win 15 and get let's say another 5-7 loser points, that leaves them around 86-88 points. That probably won't be enough to get in.

Perhaps, but I'm confident this team can win 20 of the 32.  Even with your scenario of 15 wins, we can still get to the 92 point mark which is what I'm predicting will be the magic number.

Well if they go 15-8-9, that'll be a total of 95 points by the end of the season.

No, that would be 90 points.

 

51 + 39 = 90

 

Devils need to go nine over NHL .500 to finish with 92 points, twelve over to finish with 95.

 

Devils have won 20 out of their first 50 games.  Kind of hard to make a case for them winning 20 out of their last 32.  Of course I'd love to see it, but unless Schneider goes on an insane tear, or the Devils win almost all of their remaining shootouts, I can't see it happening.

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.

This Devils team doesn't score enough to win 60%+ of its games over a 32 game stretch against any group of opponents.  And when you don't score enough, you end up in shootouts, and the Devils suck at shootouts.

The Devils always lose the "easy" games. An easy remaining schedule means we're doomed.

The only way they are winning 20 of 32 is if there is a serious change to the personnel.

I don't see any moves being made to change that.  The ones that should (selling) probably won't happen either.

Unfortunately that's the most likely outcome. The team is too inconsistent to string a long winning streak together.

Anybody who has watched them this season has seen how lazy they have played against some of the supposedly worse teams.  The point to be made is we aren't much better than many of these teams (Panthers, Isles, Blue Jackets).  Only team that's a certifiable mess is Buffalo and we actually looked pretty bad against them in the last game.

Doh I'm an idot.

 

A case can be made because the last 32 games is probably the easiest part of the schedule.

Lets Get realistic.

 

Devils are not firing DeBoer during this season.

 

I agree with Jagr play 6 D only and stop juggling the offensive line let chemistry try to work. However DeBoer panics and juggles the lines.

 

All teams play better at the end of the season because they are trying to make the playoffs or they want to be spoilers.

 

When the Devils get Brunner back we will be at full strength assuming no one else get hurt. Lets hope that adds to the offense. IMO I don't think the Devils will get better instead they will stay the same and miss the playoffs. I am expecting a loss against St. Louis , Washington and the Rangers that will set the Devils on their heals. Teams in front and behind of the Devils in the standing today have games in hand that will hurt as well.

 

I look forward to next season without DeBoer and company, without Marty wishful thinking and without Lou another wish.

 

Go Devils prove me wrong I will be the first to admit I was wrong.

I might be mistaken, but didn't Jagr go to PDB and essentially say "let me play with these guy and develop chemistry" when PDB was linejuggling like a madman early on?

I didn't read that but he sure did last night after the game and I think he is correct. I have always been about chemistry that's why the old A-line was so great, they knew where each other would be on any play.
