CD#9, that was pretty damned funny.  Thanks for a needed laugh.

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?

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.

Oh well... I STILL wish we had sold off some vets. Zidlicky especially. He did little besides turn the puck over in this stretch run, unless I'm remembering things incorrectly.

yeah, but there was a playoff chance, so again Lou bet on the season. I'm ok with it. we still have some parts which can be moved (albeit, a bit more devalued now)

The worst part about the existence of this thread and all the energy put into it is that most of us were pretty clear from the start that we didn't buy that 91 points would cut it.

Devils playoff chances: 0.00000%

 

Chances with the following record:

 

3-0-0: 0.00%

2-1-0: 0.00%

2-0-1: 0.00%

1-1-1: 0.00%

1-0-2: 0.00%

1-2-0: 0.00%

0-2-1: 0.00%

0-1-2: 0.00%

0-0-3: 0.00%

 

Reading back through this thread was amusing. Also i notice MB hasn’t posted in two days. Probably sat there crying into a half full glass.

 

Clearly we have a realistic chance at the playoffs.

2 of the next 3 teams we play are very beatable.

That's what was hilarious, MB was sooooo adamant that there's no way eight teams get to 92 when it's happened almost every year since the lockout, and that was BEFORE adding Detroit and Columbus.

Furthermore, we also all stated how the Devils had given us no reason to expect they would turn it around. Even though they had a decent point streak, they still failed to win 3 straight games down the stretch.

Since i said this in another thread we have gone 1-0-3.

 

 

We need 4 wins to even get close to a mediocre record to end the season.

 

In the last six games i can see this.

 

1) Washington - Loss (Win)

 

2) Carolina - Win (Win)

 

3) Calgary-Loss (loss)

 

4) Ottawa-OT (OT)

 

5) Islanders-Win (OT)

 

6) Boston- Win (Win)

 

 

That gives us 4-2-4 over the last 10 games of the season since my prediction.

 

 

I see us finishing on about 87 points. This basically means we need Detroit, Columbus Toronto and Washington to go winless for the rest of the season for us to make it.

 

 

It’s just not happening. The Devils needed two of those OT losses to be W's in the last four games to make it, and needed considerable support. They got the support but couldn’t hold up their end of the deal.

 

So the Devils actually went 4-1-5 over their last 10 to give them 88 points. pretty much as i expected. This team was a tease all season. It wasnt a good team, it wasnt a bad team, just completley average.

 

funny that out of the three teams above us when we were still in contention, the leafs pretty much did go winless for the remainder of their schedule. 2-8-0 is a horrible way to finish the season.

 

One statistic that stood out for me looking at the end of season results was that the Caps had 21 shootouts on the season!! going 10-11.  That is a quater of their games ending in a shootout. No one else even comes close to that many shootouts.

In the end it wound up taking 93 to make the playoffs. So much for 91.

It wasn’t doable!!! It was not impossible, and at the same time probably improbable!!

 

Why doesn’t anyone get that!!!!

 

Here let me explain it with this chart:

 

Impossibly Probable: 23%

Probably improbable: 70%

Probably Impossible : 7%

Doably impossibly probable: 4 Ducks

Unreasonably certain: 99%

Improbably possibly uncertain guaranteed: 3 1/2 lbs.
