I don't know what to make of Frazee's sophomore slump. I thought he was a lot better in March and April last year. Could just be that the throat cut was worse than anybody let on (some possibilities include nerve damage causing numbness or pain that will take *years* to go away, scar tissue making it hard for him to turn his head, etc.). Could just be that other teams have had time to compile a book on him, and knowing the Devils' system, they know how to drive him. He could be nursing an injury that the Devils don't want to talk about, that would fit their ultra-paranoid style. Or it could be the Devils' control-freakishness -- I've heard the Devils like to fvck with the way a goalie plays, almost as if they want all their goalies to play like Marty, which is a big change for most of them. Ask a tuna to fly, who should get the blame if it doesn't pan out?


The funny thing, though, is that his numbers aren't bad. 2.66 GAA and .916 saves percentage are above average numbers. Sure, in two of his past four games he's given up 5 and 6 goals, respectively, but those are blips on the radar. Also, last year, he was playing almost every game so he was probably able to get in some sort of rhythm. Not the case this year. I'm not worried.

With that said, McKenna has been playing well all year long, but even he gave up 6 goals a couple of games ago.

Lowell is now having a Jeff Frazee bobblehead giveaway this Friday night. If someone could pick up an extra one, I'd happily buy it from you.

Thanks.

You can find the 4 pack on ebay. There are at least two sets on that site. Just search for "devils bobblehead."

Probably a trade in the works. IMO Coleman's the odd goalie out, the T-Devils went with Caruso this weekend and had EBUG Tony Felice backing him up.

Well, the good news is I don't have to pony up for Lowell playoff tickets, since Lowell is now guaranteed not to make the post-season. Probably just as well, since the team's likely to be moving to Springfield or Albany or Hartford, anyway.

It's been fun, mostly, but now it's over, just playing out the string.


You're right, Frazee's 2.38 GAA and .927 saves percentage just won't cut it. :blink: Get a grip buddy.
