I know the expectations are low - which is fine. This down year is needed and I'm OK with that. I still support the team, watch when i can, go when it makes sense, but it's not must see right now. Especially for $100 a good seat.

A few instant reactions from me:
Now that I am reading this, I feel terrible for Sal. The guy tried so hard. It puts those a$$holes into perspective who were booing him.
At the same time, what the fvck were the Devils doctors doing, letting him back out there? Also, with Lou and Peter, they are just as culpable in this craziness. Lou gave him THREE YEARS as a thank you, we all knew that, but jesus - this was a mess. This guy had serious problems.
THis is why these lawsuits exist and I wonder if Sal will be apart of it.
Love you Sal, I hope the Devils can do something to honor your couple of years as a Captain.
We're in a different position than though to "not try to make the playoffs". We aren't in a tanking position. We have a great goalie and a good defense. We aren't going to be a bottom 5 team most likely. Don't make any stupid moves is more like it. If we don't make any dumb moves and somehow make the playoffs, great.

Because I'm bored. And it's not a stick up the ass, it's common sense. We look like a$$holes. Chanting You Suck at a team when we're in last place. Want to be relevant, chant the name of the guy who just scored the goal with the vuvuzela retards. I mean, whatever happened to the Mike Miller chant, that was actually nice and creative.

I was there tonight. This fvcking team is unwatchable. It's the first time I felt Lou needs to go and they need to clean house. I mean this is what he brought the other guys in for and scratching Gelly and Ryder. I mean it can't get worse and Gelly is the problem?
I think it's time to fire Lou, I really do. We need to start over.

This season has confirmed it for me: The majority of our fans, and it is the majority, are fvcking morons.
I'm so sick of the idiots who claim to support this team and bitch about every fvcking thing about the team, the players, the arena, the owners, the food in the building, the goal song, the announcements, the booing, everything sucks mentality...it just fvcking disgusts me.
Just from the start of last night at the rink - the people booing DeBoer in the pregame announcements. Like get a fvcking life already. They have no ability to look at the roster and see that TIM SESTITO, JORDIN TOOTOO, STEPHEN GIONTA, MARTIN HAVLAT, MIKE SISLO are all in the same line up - and they are ranting and raving about ITS THE SYSTEM man! It's the system. Pete doesn't care. Doesn't change anything. He's not throwing benches on the ice like Ftorek - he shows no PASSION man. EVERY game for Pete, is arranging deck chairs. He's got no guns. You want to know why a team like Washington can manhandle us? They have first line players. We don't. It's that simple. Pete said it last night and he's right - "We needed someone to be our first star last night." They don't have one. In 82 games, you need stars to carry you. It's that simple, but no - the coach is the problem. The guy who's at least keeping this team somewhat competitive.
One goal against last night and MORONS are chanting "We want Kinkaid" Go fvck yourselves. Idiots. "This team just plays better in front of Keith" they are saying...are you out of your minds?
It's the same a$$holes who if the Devils scored last night to make it 3-1 - they'd be chanting YOU SUCK! A bunch of idiots.
The bottom line is these idiots have no sense of context and they can't look up in the rafters and see an ARENA'S WIDTH of success hanging down with the majority of this greatness taking place in the 2000s. Aside from the Detroits - who's had it better for longer? I mean, the way people are acting - it's like we're the Oilers and Mets combined. Appreciate what you have here - a team that's struggling but has a great young goalie (and a capable backup) and a great young defense. Realize it's a work in progress and you can't just replace two mega stars like PArise and Kovalchuk with the snap of the finger.
Oh it's Lou's fault. The guy lost it. He just built a Cup contender 3 years ago and the only reason we haven't won one since then, is because our dumb ass huckster owner at the time loved the team so much, he ran into the ground financially because he couldn't bear sell his baby until Bettman had to wrestle the team away from him. First he didn't want to give up any ownership, then he wanted to sell a minority stake (like potential investors were running at that fvcking idea) all while getting loans from the fvcking league - leaving our hall of fame general manager to sit there having no flexibility or ability to keep the Captain he traded up to get and build the team around. Lou had his team of the decade and it was ripped from him over sh!tty circumstance. Now what? He needs time to rebuild and retool.
Have some patience.
People at the game, people on Facebook, people on HF talking about putting bags over their heads...saying how this team is like the Jets or the Mets? Go fvck yourselves. Put a bag over your heads. A plastic one.
I'm sorry to take up a thread like this - but christ it's frustrating to be a fan of this team and not because of the team - it's because of the fans. I can see the bigger picture of the team on the ice and I'm fine with that. it stinks to go to games and they lose every one I've been to this season. But look at the bigger picture.
These guys work as hard as a team can do playing as many games in as many nights as they are. It's not an easy game and not an easy league. Understand how difficult it is and realize we have three Stanley Cups in my life time. The Rangers have won ONE in 74 YEARS. The Flyers haven't won since GERALD FORD was the President. The Blues, Sabres, CANUCKS have NEVER won anything at all. The Islanders have SUCKED for every year in my lifetime pretty much except for this one. Imagine being one of those fans and get off your goddamn high horse, sit in your fvcking seat with your jersey on, clap when they do something positive, clap when they score and take this season in stride.
