This team just isn't enjoyable to watch quite honestly. They were more enjoyable to watch when they were twenty points out in January three years ago. Every game is one of two versions of the same game with this team - either get out to a multi-goal lead and blow it, or completely no-showing a game they shouldn't no-show in. Not only that but there's no future with the team in evidence with Gelly in the press box, Larsson in Albany, playing a 41-year old goalie in a futile playoff push and having an old, slow forward core.
Four home games next week and I'm glad I sold two off. I can't get out of going Thursday and the other one I'm going to is the Ranger game. I'm going to hope against hope we can play spoiler in that game but other than that, I wish we had another Olympic break
Well, the Devils are probably going to miss the playoffs for the 4th time in 20+ years. Shocking that a slow team that has trouble scoring and isn't doing particularly well...isn't enjoyable to watch. No shame in saying that, but there have been a lot of uninteresting boring Devils teams to make the playoffs over the years. Lets not crazy here. The 2010-2011 team was fun when they started winning, but in January it was an awful wreck.
This is exactly why I didn't want Lou to make a move at the deadline. Even though he didn't give up much, I really don't care for two more years of Ruutu at his cap hit or salary. You wait until the off-season, and you can undoubtedly get something better (you probably could have got Ruutu after he was amnestied for a lot less, too)
This team has about 5 players I wouldn't mind amnestying, but we all know which one is going.
