If I recall correctly, prior to this evening the devils were 1/35 in shootout attempts, which means now, they're 3/44, correct?

It's great they've decided to step it up with plenty of time left

 

If you don't expect the team to make the playoffs, it's a lot easier to be happy with their slight improvement. "Time left" is an issue you are dealing with, not me.

Just chew on this for a while. NHL skaters (and Mike Sislo) had 42 attempts to score 1 on 1 breakaways goals against a mix of starting, backup, and AHL goaltenders. In those 42 attempts they scored only 3 times

 

How would an ECHL or high school team fare? I would think better

 

yes, definitely better

The problem that people are overlooking, to a lesser extent, is that various Devils shooters over the course of this embarrassment have taken terrible attempts. IMO, this is something that is overlooked in the futility rather then the results. There's just some players who just look clueless, uninterested and beaten as soon as they move the puck from center ice.

This is Deboer hockey. They always play like frightened turtles and choke all the time in every way

the culture of choking has to end. Deboer has to go


I want Deboer gone..I've had it. Timid, stubborn, doesn't say sh!t to the refs

Only thing worse than these clowns in the shootout is having to listen to Chico still calling the games

Nice to see Jagr step up and actually go in the SO, use to make fun of him for not sacking up when he was a Ranger for always taking a pass. Considering the garbage they roll out tike after time he needs to go at least he has somewhat of a clue.

I'm on the fence with Deboer. Look at his history of coaching, yes there are chokes and roster mismanagements but for the six years of coaching he only had a talented team one time and they made the Cup Final. The other five seasons he had a lousy group and yet he managed to make them competitive, even somehow getting that Panthers team to 96 points that one season and he somehow managed to get this group within 3 pts of the playoffs. Imagine if the PLAYERS were at least mediocre at the shootout, they would be in the playoffs. What other coach that's available would be able to get this group of players in this position? Not a lot. I love his system for this group of players, I'm afraid of what might happen if that system goes away. If we had more talent on offense then I would agree about a change, but not with this group of forwards. I'll take Deboer back for another year.

No....did you forget about the bench minors he took last season and the season finale where Rooney threw him out of the game? He always mouths off at the refs when needed.

Leino's SO goal caused the Chilean earthquake. I'm convinced of this.

But that is nothing new. For years we'd get shut out and stone walled by guys like Rick Tabaracci and Steve Shields.

Is what it is. Been pretty calm about the whole thing. 3 out of 4 years missing the playoffs and you kind of get used to playoff hockey without the Devils. 

 

It was kind of funny yesterday watching the shootout. It was actually exciting. The Devils were scoring. Schneider made some saves. They had a chance to win it again and again. It was a season ending loss, but it was a welcome loss after how pathetically they have lost so many of them.

Yeah, like DR33, I'm not really bitter about the way the whole season has gone down.  The only frustrating part is if we were even 5-6 in shootouts and started Schneider 60 games, we'd likely be somewhere between 88-90 points, which is obviously comfortably in the playoffs.

I don't think this one was the killer, but the next regulation loss will be for sure (at least I think it will be).

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.

We've had 5 or 6 what feel like season ending losses but everyone else kept losing too so it kept us alive so long. I think losing two points to the islanders and sabres over 3 games was the last straw though
