Devils are doing great, considering

Digression: Coaching staff, the Zajac line IS the top line. They were neck-and-neck with the Gomez line when Gionta was still healthy, and they definitely are the top line now that Elias is out too. You don't break up your top line. The Devils have enough change to contend with. Keep your one consistent line together, and they'll continue to score.

I've been trying to stay positive but its been kinda hard because it just feels like things just keep getting worse. One night it seems like the work ethic isn't there. Next game everybody is working hard but the bounces aren't going their way. All the while teams chasing the Devils are getting closer and others are pulling away.
The position this team is in is kind of a mix between the 2000 and 2004 teams. While this team is not nearly as good as the 2000 team, that team like this one, was really struggling towards the end of the season. I remember being so upset with the team that March because it really felt like they were pissing away a golden opportunity. Many bad efforts during that month of March. It just seemed like the wheels were falling off, sort of like this year. This team has its flaws for sure, but when they are healthy and firing on all cylinders they are very difficult to play against and can beat any team in this league, so there is hope
2004 comes to mind with this team because that team started off so well, especially defensively, and then just fizzled out towards the end of the season. Injuries were a huge factor with Scott Stevens missing most of the season, the same way injuries are killing the Devils now.
I don't know, you really don't know what to expect from this team I guess. I could see them doing great things just as easily as I can see them going out in the first round. Here's hoping for the best

Its not like we need points right now. We just need to get healthy and prepare for the playoffs. Last year we NEEDED wins and points. This year we dont. Players play fo the CUP, not division championships. Sure they are nice to win, but who cares about them. The ultimate prize and goal is the Cup. Its what they play for and what we pay to watch them win for..... The Stanley Cup is the hardest and oldest sports trophy in north america to win. And it is also the sweetest championship out of all of them!!!
