#1259899 Brodeur: Devils have accepted mediocrity

Posted by Devilsfan118 on 10 April 2014 - 12:41 PM

I think it's definitely a little ridiculous to have 14m sitting on the third line when the team lacks any real top-end talent.  It's money sunk that would best be spent elsewhere..like on a 1st line player.

 

Of the Devils top-6 (and other scorers) this season..

 

Elias:  1W/2W

Zajac:  2C on a good team

Jagr:  2W on a good team

Henrique: 2C

Brunner: 3W (at best)

Ruutu:  3W

Clowe: 3W on a good team

Ryder: 3W, although I'd honestly argue he's less useful than that even

Zubrus: 3W at best

 

I mean..wow.  That's a pretty bad forward roster.  Jagr definitely overachieved this year which helped tremendously..unfortunately his contributions were kind of wiped out by Brunner and Ryder.

 

There's not a bona-fide first line player on this year's roster.  Wasting so much money on bottom-6 players like you're suggesting would be foolish.

#1254529 GDT: Minnesota @ Devils 7:00 PM

Posted by Devilsfan118 on 20 March 2014 - 05:58 PM

What a bunch of children. Yeah parise is going to be really hurt with these boos. As his team marches into the playoffs and ours gets closer to elimination. You fools. He was the definition of a class act every single day he played here. I hope he scores a hat trick tonight and then wins the cup just to rub it in your faces you unappreciative stubborn toddlers.


You feel better now with that little outburst off your chest?

Hope so, cause you're hearing boos ALL night. Get used to it.

Clearly yes, because Stevens is an assistant coach.

Walked right into that one, didn't I?

#1253915 Who would take back Clarkson (at a discounted rate)?

Posted by Devilsfan118 on 18 March 2014 - 09:52 PM

If they took on at least half of that horrifically high contract, sure I would. Hard worker, 30 goal scorer. Sounds good. This season he's been a disaster, but he did protect the goalie's water bottle.

Not to mention, who else do we have?


You mean, 15 goal scorer.

That 30 goal season was the definition of a fluke, to expect him to do it again is just wishful thinking.

Does anybody know why Pete separated Elias and Henrique?


Because scoring goals is overrated.

#1250515 My thoughts on Ruutu trade

Posted by Devilsfan118 on 05 March 2014 - 11:50 PM

There's no confrontation here. You went looking to play junior moderator and i said to Sullivan don't let these guys intimidate you. If you can find the confrontation there, feel free to point it out.

 

You're consistently difficult and looking for trouble with anyone who gives you the time of day.  That being said, I won't continue to do so.

 

It's getting old, just know that.

Sorry. You just sounded so upset and whiny, it's really ok.  No need to get too upset about it.  It's just a game.

 

Can you not instigate for once?

 

Anyway..bracing for a disappointing conclusion here.  90 minutes to go.

Just throw this year's 5th, 6th, and the 3rd round pick from 2018 in there, that'll persuade em to do it.

Just sheer idiocy, talks about history clearly hasn't looked for himself. Starting to think he's a troll because his stupidity is endless. It's actually becoming extremley infuriating because he has an opinion that conflicts with general consensus on everything. And even when he disproves himself and/or is shown facts to dispute his opinion he continues to stay stubborn.

 

I don't think he's trolling..I just don't think he realizes how frustrating he is.

Blaming the goalies and saying they're part of the problem isn't the same thing.

 

:rofl:

 

This is what we're talking about.  Stop constantly splitting hairs.

Can't win against a superior team when your best players disappear.

Thank God we didn't invest in zach. Suter is a beast though.

#1246025 3 Ways The Devils Have Disappointed (You) at the Break

Posted by Devilsfan118 on 17 February 2014 - 02:20 PM

Man I hate when new(ish) posters get ganged up on here - I love when the community continues to grow and new people join to post their thoughts.  I like to think we're a generally friendly community, and I hope any lurkers watching this whole situation with Mike unfold aren't frightened off.  So long as posters, old or new, are genuine I don't think anyone here will jump at you.

 

But Mike.. you're driving us all crazy man.  Especially when you hop from point point and then use semantics to defend yourself.

 

About the playoffs, since you brought it up - that entire thread, you were steadfast in your claims that it would be foolish to sell, citing the current standings or other 'statistics' to prove your point that the playoffs were very much so in reach and that the Devils would make it no matter how improbable.  But now you're apparently claiming you don't think they'll make it to the playoffs..so which is it?  Why be so adamantly against selling off certain players we've discussed if you don't think they'll make the playoffs anyway?  I (and others, apparently) don't get your logic - are you arguing just to argue?  Playing advocate just for the sake of doing so?

 

It's just a frustrating cycle - maybe we're misunderstanding you but it sure seems like you're talking in circles at times.
