Thanks to the link in the thread, I'm watching both. And tracking the Trenton game (4-1 Trenton in the second, figures we miss a game and they play great)

I don't think i've seen a Devils goal since the time they played LA early in the year. The games are so non compelling and I only have them here on the computer and i just get distracted, whether by the TV or some article or music or whatever. I just have it on in the background and check on the score. I don't know what's happened to me I used to love it so much.


Because they're terrible to watch game in and game out.

I'm the same way. I have the TV on in my office, but i'll either walk in or do my work and casually change channel and check it maybe watch a few mins if it's even a game. I have that feeling many others do. You know what's going to happen by repetition, such as they get down a goal they're not coming back.

It's embarassing. It really is. Losing doesn't bother me, that is sports and to accept winning you have to accept losing. However, this kind of losing makes you angry, embarassed, kills your interest and makes you hope they embarass themselves so badly that there's no choice but to clear the roster out. That's the only way they are going to get back to even a competitive level again because this group, collectively, is unable.

I love this team too much to not watch, even though I know what I am watching is pure garbage and I could be enjoying the nice spectacle that is the Winter Classic. Sticking it out through the rough times will make me enjoy the good times that much more when they come again.

I taped the WC so I can watch a hockey team or teams play well and remember what it was like.

Albany loses. On the bright side after barfing the game up last night Trenton takes care of business 5-2 tonight.

...and the faint light of hope goes out in Carolina....

I hope Elias gets to be captain once Langenbrunner is traded.

Brodeur was terrible again. Devils lose. Ho hum.

Looks like Lemaire has picked a new Swedish whipping boy. Hopefully Teds listens to Lemaire and lets himself be coached, but he's making a lot of youthful mistakes so I can't blame the reduction in ice time. Although not having him out there reduces some of the speed up front.

Well apparently Lemaire admitted benching Tedenby was a mistake, because he thought the kid took a bad penalty and looking at the tape later it shouldn't have been a penalty. So maybe there's hope from that aspect :P

Of course now Marty's ticked HE got benched...sorry Marty, love you and all but it's hard to say you deserve the benefit of the doubt with an .870 save percentage or whatever it is now.

Seeing Marty's reaction, I think it's entirely possible that he retires at the end of this season if this keeps up. He's too proud to be a backup, and you can see that getting pulled is getting to him.
