I'm tired of hearing about the schedule...we've had some of our worst games against the Sabres, Jets, Islanders, Oilers and Flames - all non-playoff teams.
The Devils have also beaten a lot of good teams.
The NHL regular season isn't an "A team is better than B team in the standings, so A should almost always beat B" kind of thing. You could look at a lot of the better teams that lost to the Devils, and they could say "Geez, how did we lose to them?" But the regular season doesn't work that way. "Worse" teams beat "better" teams quite a lot in the NHL.
But the Devils have been a classic .500ish team so far...they can beat and lose to anyone any given night.
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.
