Just got back from the game; not sure what to say or what to do at this point....


I threw my towel after the tying goal and some kid was nice enough to give it back to me. After the 4th goal I made sure to throw it much farther.

In all seriousness though, the way the Devils were playing against the Hurricanes, I did not expect them to get out of the second round anyways. They played with no urgency and were not aggressive in either end. Someone forgot to tell the team they were in the playoffs, Marty included. He dragged his padded ass on the ice last playoffs and did not do much better this year round. Let in quite a few softies, including but not limited to the first and last goals of today's game. Don't get me wrong, I still think he is our main guy, but now more than ever we need better D around him. Anyways, tonight's loss was a shock to the system, I think the pain will set in tomorrow.

P.S. I apologize if my towel landed on someone's head. Then again, all of section 230 threw their towels....lol

I should've bought stock in Kleenex today and sold it tomorrow. I think their will be a ton of tissue sales after the Ranger fans get done "boo-hoo-ing". Priceless I should say.

Worst lost in franchise history!?

Im going to have a real tough time going back to the Rock next year, luckily i have college so i can only make it on breaks. I just dont know wat to say, we are 1:20 from having just a really really special moment. And they it is just snatched away right in front of your face. Devastating, just devastating.

I know its way early, but this team needs to be gutted. There is no way we can bring back a team that even resembles this. No way this same team can overcome this loss. Sutters gotta go and all the dead weight on this team. Can we please get younger and faster.

Im going to be depressed for months. fvck.

Just getting back from the Prudential Center and words cannot explain how I feel right now. :evilcry:

I was sitting there until the ushers had to tell me to leave as I was just in total shock what we all saw in 80 FVCKING SECONDS! Stunned, shocked, crying my eyes out sick to my stomach as I threw up in the men's room, heartbroken where it feels like my heart was ripped out of me. Just words cannot explain how I feel and the rest of the 17,625 that witnessed the last 80 FVCKING SECONDS of that game. Devils had the game won and thought they played very well for 58-minutes until the last 80 FVCKING SECONDS!

This was a bitter, tough, heartbreaking loss that will be in my mind all summer long until next season. It felt like a bad dream watching the last 80 FVCKING SECONDS of that Game 7. I do not blame Brodeur for this loss. It falls on some of the veterans that did not show up in this series. Also to blame is the piss poor defense that was just terrible at the end of some of these games and now game 7 to bite them on their asses. This Devils defense we will not see the same players as changes certainly need to be made. Goodbye to Mottau, Havelid and possibly Oduya who is an UFA. I hope I never see them play for the Devils again. Also goodbye to Rupp, Holik and possibly Shanahan who may retire.

Just still stunned how the Devils blew Game 7 and this series they should have won. They were 80 FVCKING SECONDS away from playing Washington in Round 2 and they let it slip away. Devils blew this Game 7 and the series and will say it over and over the main reason for another 1st round KO is because the Devils could not score on the fvcking PP when they needed it most. Going 3-30 I believe in this series is not going to win you the series or any series'. The Devils PP is what burned this team again in the first round.

Really feeling sick right now and just have these bad thoughts in my mind at the Prudential Center when the game ended, walking to the car, driving home and just right now very sick over all of this. Sounds nuts but i love this Devils team through the good and the bad and to see the way they lost tonight just kills me right now. This loss will have me shaken, bitter, heartbroken, distraught for a long time...This will be a game I will never forget and it is right up there in the top 5- all-time shattering playoff loses. It is up there with the 94' ECF and the 2001 SCF with me right now. What hurts too is that we had to see the last games of the Devils playoffs end in heartbreak fashion at the Prudential Center in its first two seasons. Can't handle it right now as I am very upset. This loss will stay with me a longtime....Going to be another long summer. :evilcry:

This just sucks right now....I feel bad for us Devils fans and the players in that locker room. I cannot believe the Devils lost Game 7 tonight. It was stolen away from them.

Just got back.

100% numb. All I can do is slowly come to the realization that these NJ Devils are NOT the NJ Devils we've all come to love over the years. I watched their leader come out the last 2 games and put his team on his back and win games (where are you Claude Lemieux?) . I watched their goalie stand on his head despite numerous odd man rushes and keep his team in it despite the onslaught (where are you Marty Brodeur?) I watched their D-man dive in desperation, keeping a sure 2 on 0 rush out of our hands and more importantly keeping the puck in zone that lead to the tying goal (where are you Scott Niedermeyer?). If you switched jersey's tonight, you would have watched our beloved NJ Devils. The ones that would always find a way to get it done. Now, we're just a good regular season hockey team with a very good top line, a very average defense, an above average goaltender; a horrible power play and an average penalty kill. Never wanting to admit it, but I now must. The ride is over. I will enjoy the 3 Cups we've won as I'm not sure we'll ever get another. This team is in need of a new coach (sorry Brent, you were schooled in this one and we can't afford to keep being your internship for pro hockey) and new D, more scorers, but more importantly-- a NEW IDENTITY.

Time for another glass of Hemlock.

Good luck Carolina. We're going to owe you a lot as it was you who forced us to finally change.

i feel like my my heart has been ripped out of my chest


Yeah, that is what I've been feeling. But I understand if ppl gotta let it out and vent, better now than never.


Maybe it was that they didn't have enough heart, but then again, this team made it through this ridiculously difficult season because of 'heart' more than anything...
I think its the team's 'ability' that we have overestimated over and over again: let's face it, we're a 1.5 line team.

Parise-Zajac-Langenbrunner: that's our line, and I'm confident they're gonna be as filthy next year
Elias-Zubrus-Gionta: if this line is on, it can do damage. But I don't think I wanna risk it on whether Zubrus can get it going
Shanahan-Madden-Pandolfo: with all due respect to Shanny's 600+, do we really expect much here offensively?
Clarkson-Rupp/Holik-Rolston: if Rolston can get his game going, then we've got options. If Holik played this whole series and I were Sutter, I'd say: "you only have 1 job: Keep runnin' at Staal, break him down, get him off his game."

Can this team please pick up a center that would make Elias and Rolston effective. As much as i dont like Rolston, look at the line he is on. Does anyone expect him to do anything being slowed down with Clarkson and Rupp. I mean come on. Put a decent center between Elias and Rolston, and then lets evaluate Rolston. That still doesnt excuse his horse sh!t effort of a season. fvcking bust.
