Get in as top 3 of the division or a wildcard slot?

 

With the wildcard we'd play the Penguins or the Bruins and with the 2 or 3rd spot we'd play Flyers, Rags, BJs or Caps

Don't matter to me. I like our odds vs anyone in the playoffs. This team has been playing playoff hockey all season playing 1 goal games. Plus, no shoutout in the playoffs

Have to agree, outside of the bruins there isn't anyone to be scared of. I guess the penguins could be scary if fleury magically continues to play well into the playoffs. He has been pretty damn good this year, if that continues they could be winning another cup finally.

 

But we should be really scared of the bruins they always beat us in recent memory.

Yeah the Bruins (maybe the Penguins if MAF actually plays well in the playoffs) are the only team I'd worry about.

 

Honestly just to get to the show would be such a great success that anything afterwards would feel like a bonus to me.

I would absolutely love to play the Penguins first round at all costs. Only teams I'd be somewhat nervous about are Boston and Columbus (oddly enough). Devils and Columbus are two teams I don't think anyone would look forward to being drawn against in the first round.

Yeah, I'd consider making the playoffs after starting 0-4-3 a successful season.

I want the fan base to start appreciating just making the playoffs.

 

Btw, everyone picked us last this year - so if we make it, by some fvcking way - Pete for Adams, Jagr for Hart. Shouldn't even be a competition.

Let us remember, Jagr didn't play in preseason too and TG called him the "Phantom"

I think it was ESPN that basically made it sound like the only thing the Devils did was to bring in Jagr (and of course, they made that move sound like a joke bound to fail).  They didn't mention Schneider or any of the other moves Lou made to try to recover from Kovy "retiring".  But yeah, I think a lot of prognosticators were quite proud of themselves when the Devils started off 0-4-3 and were saying "Haha, see, told you the Devils were going to suck!"  I don't think any of them thought the Devils had a 17-9-7 run in them. 

 

But yeah, playoffs are never a birthright.  Devils did a hell of a job to get in this year if they pull it off, even if everyone from the GM down to the players had us all scratching our heads at times.  And even if it DOESN'T happen, no one can accuse them of not trying.  They may not always be very good, but they rarely sleepwalk their way through a game (though on their uglier night it can look that way).

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.

Pete for Adams is insane considering what St. Patrick's done with a team that drafted #1 a few months ago. Jagr for Hart is not that insane but you know Crosby and his 110 points is getting it.

And nobody had the Devils last, most everyone had them where they are now, just outside the bubble.

I could've sworn everyone from THN to ESPN to TSN all had the Devils last. But I am too lazy to look it up :)

It's pretty insane. The Hart should go to the best player in the league. Even if you want to use valuable, it has to go to someone more valuable than Jagr.

 

 

These threads are not silly when you are in a playoff spot, but where the Devils are...it's pretty silly.

If it wasn't for Jagr the Devils would literally be fighting the Isles and Buffalo for the worst record in the league.

If it wasn't for Bernier so would the Leafs. If it wasn't for Ovechkin, the Caps would probably be with Buffalo. If it wasn't for Karlsson, Ottawa would be bottom 3.

 

You can do it with a lot of teams. Anyway, I like awarding the best player in the league the MVP.

I will just be happy the team is still playing hockey. It could be against a team made up of all the greatest ever players, in their prime, who start each game with a 6 goal advantage and I would still be happy.

Exactly true. Not only that, but I could argue that Jagr is less vital to the Devils' success than any of those other players are to their team's.

This is not how hockey works. Just like adding a scorer doesn't magically raise team scoring. This is just childish simple mindedness. Goaltenders are the only ones that can single-handedly greatly affect the teams performance game in and game out.
