The Devils are bad and it's time to tank

10 November 2014 - 09:32 PM

Early in the season, our record is better than it was last year, no more Marty, just bench Salvador, blah, blah, blah.

It's over fancy stat people. It's a very, very bad team. Old forwards, bad defenseman, a hugely disappointing goalie who was supposed to be the answer to all of our problems, but maybe shows that you can't plug and play save percentage, and obviously Stevens as defensive coach was not the problem.

Trade Jagr and Zidlicky as soon as you think we can get the maximum value for them. Just tank, and hope for one of those top two picks.

Is Larsson Finished?

24 October 2014 - 12:05 PM

A serious question, and I would actually like to have some reason for optimism, but I just don't see it.  In the chance he got last game, he got about 11 minutes of icetime, and is once again on the bench.  At some point, you can't just say that DeBoer is being irrational.  He has been just as skeptical as Gelinas, who's holes in his game are more readily apparent.  There's always the Salvador factor, but if Larsson were really what you would expect in a number 4 pick who some thought was the best player in his draft, you find a way to get him into the lineup.

 

Is there any hope that he gets better?  Can anyone think of a defensemen who has had a similar start to their career that turned into a good or very good defenseman?
