NHL LIVE: Cohost Steve Mears ask Barry Melrose a question about the NJ Devils.

 

Mears, "The Devils struggling to score.. are they relying too much on some older players, Jaromir Jagr, Patrik Elias, to produce when they needs some goals right now?"

 

Melrose, "Well, I don't know who else they got to rely on... everyone on the team is over 35. There's more AARP guys in the dressing room than young guys coming up. So, that's their team, Jagr has to play well, Cammalleri has to play well, they got him to score. Henrique is their lone young star and some good young defensemen. But this team is Live or Die with those 35+ guys, that's their best players, best offensive players.,,, They don't have the luxury of the Edmonton Oilers with all those young guys and high draft picks. They got older guys and that has to carry them..."

Well, that experiment didn't work... put in Clowe and Captain Saltastic next game!  Oh wait...

 

Zajac, Patty, and Clowe...  $16+ Million in cap hit and they have a total of 5 goals between the 3 of them.

But we don't need Josefson... We can definitely afford to bench him and his speed, seeing as we're such a fast team and all...
Obviously. Tough building, tough tough building.

lol... how many times does PDB/LL have to pine players to figure out who's too slow or mistake prone on this team?

 

The most frustrating is looking at these horrendous long term - expensive - NMC/NTC contracts for underachievers,. damaged goods, and bon voyage farewell players. It's like Boils-Cysts that will fester this organization for years to come.

More than half the game has been played and the Devs have a total of 6 SOG.

 

No fight, No hunger, No meanness... maybe they can watch SLAPSHOT on the flight home for some future motivation.

Wild commentators were in disbelief over how many times the Devils missed the net with their shots.

Caught that too...  high or wide is the meme. It's nice to see how the opponent's media call-think about the Devils play.
