I want everyone who has blamed Marty for us not making the playoffs to think about this game.

 

No, what we think about is his league worst save percentage and all the leads he's gagged up for us and the late goals he's allowed

 

Brodeurs goal support is way higher than Schneiders

Honestly, I would rather get rid of them than not. I just have no use for paying players millions to do sh!t. 

 

Ryder clearly has the better chance to bounce back, but one goal in 33 games for a guy who is SUPPOSED to score is too much for me.  Understood the signing and it was worth the risk, but I don't want him back.  Only has a year left at reasonable $$$ and someone will take a chance on him hoping he's a bargain.

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.

I really don't think this game will matter anyway since Columbus will take care of its own business.

Get rid of Ryder and replace him with a jockstrap and that'll be a big upgrade.

This is where I am right now. It's not such a good place.

 

 

2.74 per day but close. And lol at me being YOUR fan - you check my profile almost everyday.

 

Good job trying to sell your length of membership (because we all know you love a caste system) and divide the posts up without mentioning your post-a-thons over the last few months where you average 20-23 posts per day. You're in like every thread on this board, yet you took post count shots at MB. You're another one who likes to dish it out but can't take it back.

I don't deny this. Doesn't contradict my point.

...being a Devil can start to make you think none of it was worth it.

 

Ryder clearly has the better chance to bounce back, but one goal in 33 games for a guy who is SUPPOSED to score is too much for me.  Understood the signing and it was worth the risk, but I don't want him back.  Only has a year left at reasonable $$$ and someone will take a chance on him hoping he's a bargain. 

 

Ryder doesn't add anything that a Reid Boucher won't add but one is a fraction the cost and is young. It doesn't have to be Reid Boucher either, it can be any young forward around the league who can score 15 goals a year, not suck, and do it for $1,000,000.

 

Brunner shows up once a month. He's bound to be back in Switzerland soon.

I think he just meant soon enough that he probably won't see another game like that from Karri Ramo. I believe he was inferring that could be a while LOL.

My bandwagon will be whoever happens to be playing the Rangers... Which is going to be the Phailures in the first round. Which sums up this whole dumpster fire of a season in a nutshell.

 

Fair enough :lol:  And yeah, really.  The bolded is so true.. this season just needs to be over and forgotten about already.

I'm honestly not even worried about the Rangers, I feel like they'll roll over to anyone but the Flyers.  But who knows..fvck it'd suck to see them go on a run.

Hate all the "players didn't try hard enough" stuff. The team isn't the greatest to begin with and are short 3 top guys. We get a bounce going our way and it's "damn I'm so fvcking proud of this team!!!!!!!!!!" The effort is there, it has been all along. This is a team of mules that needs a stallion or two.

Lol crying for mods now.

Was i disrespectful with my first post to you? Not alt all. Then you call me a moron then i reply back to you and you cry about it? Grow some balls

 

What you posted was moronic in nature...you jumped to an unfounded conclusion, that I was saying to dump Ryder and Brunner and not try to find upgrades.  It's very simple...Ryder and Brunner shouldn't really be considered scorers if this team wants to improve offensively. 

 

At any rate, your response was ridiculous and way over the top, but you only made yourself look bad in doing it.

They've had some poor-effort games here and there (all teams will, especially in compressed seasons), but there's actually reasons for hope for next year...the overall goaltending should improve, for one.  And like I've pointed out, there's flexibility with this roster.  Lou can make plenty of changes if he wants to.

I don't really see anyone saying this tonight. People are just pissed the Devils couldn't score, not that they didn't work hard enough to.

I hope one of you stat guys can make a post sometime about how many rookie/backup/washed up goaltenders the Devils have lost to this season.  It seems like it would be a depressing number.

Yeah (except for the Ryders and the Brunners). This is all on Lou, who needs to step down already.

Plus fewer back to backs next season for sure

Our last succesful season we had a 40 goals scorer, 2 30 goals scorer, a few 20+ scorers and then we had our regulars in the 5-10 range.

We lost kovy, zach, clarkson, sykora (very cheap 20+ goals production)

Replaced it by jagr, brunner, clowe, ryder, butler, matteau and god knows who else. Which was clearly not enough to compensate. Only jagr actually helped.
We have no scoring outside of maybe boucher coming from our system. We have aging scorers that should leave soon and their production is dropping anyway.

We can try to sign a few free agents but again, anyone that we sign should be added to the mix, not replacing or be a small upgrade to another guy leaving. That still wont be enough
