Attendance and atmosphere arent necessarily one in the same. The crowds arent into the games like they were last year. Obviously, a lot of that has to do with the low offense, but you cant also discount the of the Diablos, the growing vuvuzela use, and the anti-climactic goal song.

 

Yea but none of that is on the owners.  The quality of the team has very little to do with the owners.  And 7 Nation Army has been eaten up by out fanbase.  The fans love it.

This team is in the position I expected them to be in coming into this season.  Can't say I'm disappointed, although their inconsistency is frustrating to watch at times.  Fact of the matter is, this is a very average team that plays that way.  Their system and goaltending keep them in games and give them a chance to win, but the offense is non-existent and it is a struggle just to pot 2 goals on most nights.  I'd be estatic just making the playoffs this season.

I agree that the owners (especially these owners since they are new) aren't the reason that the atmosphere is dead inside the Rock this season.  It's on the fans to make the building the way it was in 2012.  The goal song isn't the reason the you can hear a conversation 2 people are having from the other end of the rink with 2 minutes left in the 3rd.  However, if you really think the majority of fans love the new goal song, I want some of what you're smoking.

They lost three 30 goal scorers and replaced them with zero, maybe one if Jagr keeps going. Its common sense you aren't going to win that way unless your defense was so lights out they were giving up less than two a game. 

 

If Corey started most of the games and still had his current save percentage and GAA, maybe they would be in a slightly better position. But there were a LOT of one goal losses/shootout horror shows that could have been avoided if you threw another 30 goal scorer or two in the mix.

 

We need to retire the idea of David Clarkson being 'a 30 goal scorer'.  He did that once.  He will not likely do it again - he's not a very good player, and he is having just a disastrous year in Toronto.

I refuse to get into yet another debate about this, but let's be clear - 'the fans' don't all love it.  It's incredibly tacky.  I'm sure some like it, but quite a few I know and have spoken with don't.  It's a mix, for sure.

It's bad, but if he got every opportunity he got under Deboer in Toronto it wouldn't be that awful. I don't think anyone pointed out more than me how ridiculously lucky 50% of Clarkson's goals were, but you get on the ice and good things happen.

 

Carlyle is using Clarkson no different than how Lemaire did.

I think I went through it with you once...the goals that went off random body parts, etc.  I've never seen puck luck like that in one season, ever.

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.

FWIW - I think 7 Nation Army has been a fantastic replacement. I saw a lot of people post/submit their options and I didn't like any of them, including my own suggestions, as much as it

I think it's a good replacement if they just kept it simple. Not really a fan of the remix + the corny "Let's Go Devils" that seems awkwardly thrown in. Just too much going on.

He's been taken off the power play in Toronto, but even so in 2011-12 it's not like Clarkson was given great linemates - he was playing with Tedenby and Carter for half the year.  

 

Lemaire started him off with two guys who currently play in the AHL, but regardless, Clarkson got the short end of the luck stick in 2011 without question.

There is also a lot of people who simply "accepted" RR2 as well.  Most of our fanbase falls into the category of that they "like the song, but don't really care" what the goal song is.  That was the case with RR2 and is currently the case with SNA.  That would be one example of just "accepting" of the goal song.
