I told you guys ealier, I have it on good authority that the Devils were only able to extend their contract with Satan up to the 09-10 season. Bettman and the NHL threatened to void the contract if it went any farther.

"I is team" -Kovalchuk

If we could trade Kovalchuk for Ladd/Byfuglien... I'd do it... but I don't think Atlanta wants him back. They've done very good without him. I wonder how good the Devils could've done without him. I know he is one guy, but the drama, negativity with his payroll compared to others, negativity in locker room... I would bet it has something to do with him.


Ok so a two time 52 goal scorer and someone who has scored the most goals since the year he entered the league for 2 third line grinders that are a dime a dozen?
I agree with the line of thought that so far this season those two may have been more of contribution to the team than Kovy but... over a 82 game schedule and looking at the big picture , I am going to have to say your nucking futts.

I will agree with you in that so far Kovy has not lived up to the hype. However it is simply not a case that he has magically lost his talent and ability to score.
I just think that the current offensive system and his linemates take away from what makes Kovy effective. His strengths are his speed and his shot. Currently other teams take away all his time and space by pressuring the crap out of him. They can easily do so as we have no one driving the net or getting into scoring areas of the ice. This enables teams D to step up and be more aggressive on the puck carrier.

It was frustrating to see the Stoll of all people , on one PP had more one-timer set-ups than Kovy has had all year long. We just dont have the offensive gameplan to enable Kovy to do what he does best. Dump and chase , and cycle for shots from the outside with no one in near the net is not getting it done.

I can see Kovy get frustrated and try to make his own time and space by stick handling through 2-3 defenders , and it is failing miserably so far.

We need a system where we are more aggressive and drive the net both with and without the puck.

Dear Devils Fan whom nameth his self Quinn the first,

Thine Devils are deserveth of our neglectance, ney pissance, this Fall, all things considereth. Thou hast amassed a fearful treasure-trove of hockeymortals, yet wasteth with weakness of resolve shown hereinfor on the ice. We pitieth thou and thine brethren-in-pain, your long-suffering Army of Devils. Avengance of our scorn, nay, shall demand a sacrifice or two before we more favorabally look upon your pitiful plight or to bringeth whatsoever. Until then, crawleth on yon belly and prostrateth thyself to our alter some more.

Big Buff ain't a third line grinder. He can play defense and offense. He crashes the net. Ladd has got a nice shot and is a steady producer whether it be Carolina, Chicago or Atlanta. 3rd liners? I thinekth noteth!

The Devils lineup tonight is worse than their pre-season lineup. This will be a long night.


Good chance Vancouver won't be my other-favorite-team after tonight :cry:
