I'm here in section 131. Probably the best seats I've had regular season. Not as bothered by the vuvuzelas than most on this board. Without them this place would be close to silent

Wait, Steve isn't gay? I don't mean that in any sort of derogatory way at all, I just thought he was of the other persuasion. Congrats Canger! Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk

Salvador is so trash god. Saw him for like 2min in the 1st period and that was a really good period. I wonder why.

That's like his 15th breakaway this year.

First time he's scored on it


3 more great plays by gio. And im kinda happy a 4th line player creates over 15 breakaways halfway through the year

Someone else springing him isn't really him creating a break away. Although he did have 2 really good plays tonight. If gio saw 6-8min a game and wasn't on the PK I'm sure no one would have any problem with him. The problem is PDB likes to try give him like 15 min a night and uses him on the PK where he is clearly at a huge disadvantage with that tiny reach.  

 

 

Also cory is fvcking good, such a joke that he hasn't had the majority of starts this year.

I dont have the energy to disagree with everything you just said, but I do. The coach gives ice time to people who deserve it, he knows who deserves it much better than bartholomew hunt and sneax the two dorks on an internet forum. Thats why hes an nhl head coach. Gionta is a good 4th line player. These are the facts

The same coach that has been playing broduer over cory to the determinant of the team? Or the same PDB that played Mouse like 8 games straight in a stretch where he was playing some atrocious goal goalie? Or the same coach that likes to have fayne ride the pine for long stretches of time for peter harrold?

 

PDB is terrible at managing his players. He values 110%effort over guys that have the skill to make the difference, sometimes effort alone isn't enough. And it is no surprise that this team has struggled in times where gionta and the 4th line have played more than they should be. PDB makes a lot of terrible personnel decisions.

 

Gionta is a pretty good 4th line player, but that's how he should be used.

Can you imagine how Joe Whitney's feeling tonight?

Yes the same PDB that took a lottery team to the scf in his first year........................

I agree schneider should get the majority of time but the hate for marty on this forum is retarded, he hasnt been nearly as bad as this website makes him out to be. The same people saying marty should retire as soon as possible are probably the same dopes that decided to start a "corys better chant" on tuesday. You have the greatest goalie of all time and you disrespect him in his own building with a chant that was created for him. I was embarassed when I heard that the other day. Ive heard some dumb stuff come out of devs fans mouths at games but that took the cake. Just goes to show the immaturity of our fan base, and devils fans wonder why they get 0 respect.

And you think its an easy situation to just sit martin brodeur?

Fayne is a mediocre 3rd pairing defenseman, stop acting like hes brian rafalski. Theres a reason pdb has kept his job for this long.

so he makes one good play that all defensemen should make? Really you think that was a special play by Salvador that warrants his continued ice time? Every defensemen on our roster should be capable of doing that, meanwhile I saw him blindly throw a puck in his own zone onto a cap stick which led to them having like 1min+ of sustained pressure, a few minutes before the AMAZING clear. His gaffs far outweigh his "plays"

Gionta is a pretty good 4th line player, but that's how he should be used.

Marty was winning, Cory wasn't. Now that it's flipped guess what- Cory is getting the starts. Moose was our only hope during that stretch. Kincaid was not ready to handle legit starts, one save against a weak stamkos shot doesn't change that.

Pete is not terrible at a managing players- he wants to put the best team on the ice, and sometimes that doesn't equate to the most skilled or youngest or prettiest team.

Gionta is used as a 4th line player, he has the lowest average 5v5 toi of any regular forward this season. I don't know what games you are watching that you see otherwise.
