There is no excuse to let Larsson and Gelinas play and develop from this game out. Not one

It aint gonna happen. I've given up.

They got the very best you could expect from Brodeur tonight. It's a shame, but this team is not a playoff team. 

 

They lose this game and I can't make a case for them going 10-3-1 no matter how "easy" or "favorable" their schedule is. 

 

They've got 20 minutes to make something happen.

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.

That's it. We're pretty much eliminated. Might as well bring back Adam and Gelinas.

This whole trip's been the inverse of the season.  Cory getting goal support and Marty not.  And both losing.

We don't have games in hand, we don't have anything going in our favor. Pack up shop, the season is over. The Devils are officially eliminated as of the BJ Crombeen goal

 

everybody pretty muck knew there backs were broken last night anyway. And that's why we got this timid/scared effort today.

 

They've rolled over and died

Boucher for that matter, too.

 

Boucher can stay in the AHL for the rest of the season, he clearly wasn't ready earlier.  Hell they should have kept Merrill down too but they're rushing him the way they rushed Larsson at 18.

 

The other two should obviously be playing but I've given up the ghost on that.

Marty has been the lone highlight. He's played very well- the rest of the team... Not so much.

"Ready" only matters when there is something to lose. Let him play, get used to the speed, and live with his fvck ups because they sure as sh!t aren't going to cost us a damn thing

They've got 20 minutes to make something happen. 

 

I'm sure they'll come out and play the last 20 minutes hard as that's the one thing they do to their credit. It's disappointing because this is the first time in a long time that Brodeur has kept them in a game, maybe even stealing a game up until the first goal. It had to feel good seeing that even from those of us who would enjoy nothing more then his departure.

 

They've given no one any indication they are capable of winning 10 games at the least from here on out. The game last night was it, IMO. You can point to certain games at certain times and look back when it's over and say "that's the one". That game had to hurt them as a team.

Marty's played very well.  Not the problem tonight.  Looks like their puck luck is starting to go the other way.

 

I can't start eulogizing this team with one period left to play, but it's looking like one of those nights.

Brodeur turns back the clock but the rest of the team doesn't show up. Ugh.

Boucher for that matter, too.

Hey, on the bright side, Larsson is helping Albany as they try to squeak into one of the last playoff spots. :P
