What a bad deadline day. Have always been a big LL supporter but this was beyond bad. Especially seeing what other teams gave up for serviceable players. Devils got fleeced on the Ruutu trade. Hard to say they arent the losers of Trade Deadline day.

I've been lurking most of the day to read what other Devils fans thought we might do at the deadline and to see if anyone here had an inside scoop compared to generic NHL sites, but this post is just so fvcking stupid that I had to register and call you out.

 

LL is suddenly inept because of the one and only trade he made today to acquire a veteran winger and got rid of a ridiculously underachieving RFA?  I admit, I had huuuuge hopes for Loktionov at the beginning of this year, but the guy has done next to nothing, so it doesn't pain me to see him go.   Ruutu's contract isn't all that bad, at 4M for 2 years left. 

 

I'm just glad we didn't lose a guy like Zidlicky, who has provided so much offense for us this year on the back-end.   Dumping Salvador would've been nice, but the guy is our captain and that's honestly probably the reason he didn't get shipped. 

 

I'm also glad Brodeur is still with us.  Here's hoping he accepts his current role.  Hell, he isn't even a true backup yet, he's still effectively splitting starts, since every time Cory has a flaky night DeBoer isn't shy from putting Marty back in and letting him try to win the job back.   I've never been a fan of a carousel at the goalie position, but I'd much rather deal with this for a season and see Brodeur retire as a Devil, than to see him go somewhere else where he'll likely still be a backup, and tarnish his legacy .  People saying this is a circus and a media nightmare are fvcking whiny and retarded.   The perfect ending for me as I've accepted the end for Brodeur is to see him finish the year with us and make a big push in the playoffs and then having him retire, or even one more season on a 1 year deal, provided again the he further accepts the backup role as we continue to give Schneids more starts. 

 

LOL. Thanks for registering. And the laugh on a terrible day.

I blame minnesota. No one probably wanted vanek he's a giant flight risk back to minni.

Trade deadline is over. Now the only suspense left is if all the people who are done with this team pop in after every loss to remind us that they are indeed done with this team.

Great job clearing that defenseman logjam Lou. Well done. Now Larsson can rot in Albany for the rest of the season. I'm seriously getting to the point with Lou where he makes me want to punch sh!t on deadline day almost every year.

What an absolute waste of time.

 

I'm out, done with hockey for the day.  No sense getting any more pissed off than I already am.

 

Now I'm just waiting for Marty to be announced as the starter for the next game.  JUST WAITING FOR IT! :lol:

All I wanted was one of the superfluous defenseman moved. For anything. A fvcking spare tire, I don't care. And Lou can't do it. And I'm also glad we addressed that scoring issue by adding a guy with 5 goals in 57 games. Bravo Lou, bravo.


I love Lou to death, but I want to punch him in the fvcking face right now.

I'm just glad we didn't lose a guy like Zidlicky, who has provided so much offense for us this year on the back-end.   Dumping Salvador would've been nice, but the guy is our captain and that's honestly probably the reason he didn't get shipped.

1) its not our job to worry about marty's legacy, thats his problem. IMHO he needs to retre. That being said I have not problem w/ him being the back up for the rest of this year.
2) LL has dropped the ball too often lately, i'd rather nothing than picking up a bad contract of a slow mucker...
3) since 2005, LL has far more misses than hits!! Yes the Kovy & Zid trades were nice, but the Kovy trade turned into an awful contract that eventually cost us a draft pick & then Kovy leaves. the Vol & Sal contracts are awful, now Ruuto contract, ( and remember that unbeleiveable Rolston contract!!!)
4) And for me the biggest screw up is Larsson in Albany, sorry but IMHO he is better then half of the startes now so why is he not here?? LL needed to make a move to open a spot for him, that was the final straw for me

In Lou We DONOT Trust!!

Someone above Lou needs to end the Brodeur/Lou era immediately. How long until the owners realize the special sauce has long expired.

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.

You all need to get some complete vision.  You all bitch about everything.  EVERYTHING. Whatever the team DIDN'T do is the right move. 

 

Just because the Devils aren't winning doesn't mean that everyone else if brilliant.  What has Minnesota won lately?  Isn't it always just a matter of time for all those teams they try to buy/negotiate their way to a Cup? The more splashy moves they make more they are casting a vote of no confidence on the stars they already HAVE.  For fvcks sake give your team a chance!

 

I'm not pleased with Lou's moves.  The only thing worth bitching about is merely that 3rd rounder -- I mean wtf was THAT all about?  Rutuu isn't even worth Lokti?  He had to go and throw a pick in too?  Whatever - it's all a big so what really.
