Gelanis was sent down because the mistakes were piling up, the game was getting ahead of him.  so you send him down , take some pressure off him. and bring him back up when he's ready

Yeah, but you send him down and make room for...Peter Harrold? A lack of continuity can ruin a young player. If Gelinas and Harrold are going to make the same mistakes, I'd rather watch Gelinas make them and learn from them, rather than Harrold just mucking it up. Also, Gelly has 22 points to Harrold's...how many? Not many. Side note: WHERE IS LARSSON

I thought I read somewhere that gelanis loses confidence at times (maybe it was chicos blathering) but some player can play through "it" and some are better off being sat.  btw gelly has one "real" goal in his last 18 games

 

correction: where the F is larsson... is this kid a head case?????

Yes, yes, it was more rhetorical, thank you. My point being, he's tearing it up in the AHL, and I'd much rather see him up here than that bum, Peter Harrold

Dude, it's so much simpler. We lost Kovalchuk, Parise, and Clarkson, all 30 goal scorers. If you watch the games, we're the same team as we were in 2012, just minus the goals.

We're the same team as we were in 2012 period. Has everyone forgotten we were a bubble team that year? Without that six game win streak to finish that season, this team with Kovalchuk, Parise, and a useful Clarkson wasn't making the playoffs.

That's ridiculous, they were in comfortable position by mid-March.  They were a 'bubble' team for about 50 games but made a ton of acquisitions during the season.  


And on top of our talent drain there's two more playoff-caliber teams in the East since then (Detroit and Columbus).

Hmm, they actually were, I don't know why I was confused. They were 10 points clear of ninth for a good while.

TG: Devils’ Jagr says putting him and Zajac on different lines “doesn’t make sense”

 

 

“It doesn’t make sense to me and I don’t want to talk about it either,” said Jagr, who lead the Devils with 17 goals, 31 assists and 48 points in 57 games. “I don’t really (care) either.”

DeBoer admitted he was “a little reluctant” to split up Jagr and Zajac as he has tried to accommodate Jagr’s preference for stability since they talked about it early this season.

“I know Jags likes consistent linemates,” DeBoer said. “Some guys prefer that. Some guys don’t mind change. I know he’s said before that he likes to play with the same guys. At the same time, that only works if you’re getting consistent production and we haven’t gotten enough there recently.”

That last part wasn’t accurate, though. Before Jagr was held without a point in Monday’s 2-1 overtime loss to Colorado, he had put up four goals and eight assists in nine games. Zajac also was on a pretty good run with two goals and six assists over six games.


So, Jagr’s response to the suggestion that DeBoer made the move in hope of creating more goals, was a sarcastic-sounding, “That makes sense. Me and Travis, we didn’t score many.”

Otherwise, Jagr wasn’t in a mood to discuss it further.

“I’ve got a lot, but I’m not going to say it,” Jagr said. “I’m just looking for peace in my body.”

First, Jagr publicly advocates for Josefson, DeBoer doesn't listen. Now, Jagr publicly disapproves of DeBoer moving Zajac off his line. Fun times.

I do want Larsson back up here though. I'm quietly praying after their game tonight, they'll be calling him up. A boy can hope.

 

I want a little more speed moving up the ice, and I think Adam can provide that.

Sounds like perhaps the players were saying the right things about their coach publicly and now things are boiling over...  If the Devils don't go 2-0 DeBoer could be got at that break. Hell... he could be gone sooner.  The clock on PDB is ticking loudly...

Nothing against Jagr, but I do remember him being kind of a cranky diva and a PITA at times when he was younger.  Not sure if publicly calling out his coach is the best thing right now, but I'm sure everyone was frustrated after that loss.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

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.

I hope he doesn't let this affect his play.  He needs to understand that this lineup change is only for the better.
