#1273671 Kovalchuk Retired Effective Immediately?

Posted by SterioDesign on 15 July 2014 - 07:08 AM

No offense, but sometimes I wonder why you're not a Chicago or Pittsburgh fan. You constantly bemoan the team's lack of speed and flashy offense, but that's not the kind of game this team plays. The team and PDB's system negates speed and is built on quality 5v5 play where our offense comes from zone time, which is gained by forechecking hard and good play along the boards. These are both things Kovy wasn't particularly good at.

It just seems to me that sometimes you're complaining about things that epitomize who this team is. That just doesn't make sense to me.


Listen, with my post i was not "complaining" i was pointing out how ridiculous some posters are now bashing Kovalchuk like he was a fvcking terrible player and that he was not useful at all. He was helping us a LOT and now people are butthurt and will try to convince themselves that he was terrible, which is not true at all.


But the same people will never say a bad thing about Zajac who can barely score 20 goals as a first line center. The double standard on this board is ridic. So many freagin homers / koolaid drinkers here its unreal.

I went through the 5 stages of grief pretty quickly.  I'd find it hard for anyone to argue that NJ isn't better off at this moment.


sure if you look at some 5 on 5 corsi stats maybe you can convince yourself that.


looking at our shootout, remembering all the games we lost by one goal and a streak of missing the playoffs since he left....


no we're not better off. buddy was scoring big goals for us and was drawing opposite players opening the play for the other guys and he's fast. it's all immensely missing now on this team

I didn't mean to imply race really had anything to do with it - I just think the results speak for themselves.


If you have a choice of picking an apple from three trees (to keep it simple), and you've picked quite a few rotten ones from tree A, why would you feel inclined to keep picking apples from that first tree?


we got nothing good out of any trees in the last 10 years. Doesnt really matter at this point

#1257048 I'm just going to come out and say it.

The problem with some of these posts are - they hey at least we aren't the leafs, or we did better than we were projected.


The real issue is the mismanagement of the team.  I don't think it completely falls on Lou, but he is partially to blame.  We have like 9 NHL defensemen some we can't properly develop.  We have a bunch of 2nd/3rd/4th liners on the team.  Obviously we are a team that will live and die by the 1 goal game and you'd think Lou would do more to get better shootout guys. When the Pens picked up Jokinen last yr on waivers, he would have been perfect for us for the shootout.  Lou would rather have a guy like Clowe - who although I like what he brings to the table, he isn't going to light anything on fire.


The whole brodeur/schneider thing has been a mess and total mismanagement as well.


I think it's time for the Marty/Lou/DeBoer show to go and time to fully transition into a new era.  Now i dont think we need to rebuild, but we need to move past some of the Devils stubborn habits of the past that won't get us anywhere


Great post, im really enjoying seeing people starting to turn the corner about Lou. He was great and all but way too many people we're almost scared to say anything bad about him as if it was a sacrilege or something and we're in total denial defending all his bad moves.


Im a kind of guy that will call a cat a cat, when Lou deserves credits i'll give it to him no problem. But i certainly won't close my eyes on the bad ones either. Not that i expect him to be perfect but most of his big mistakes we're not things that didnt pan out, they we're mostly all decision made out of stubborness. Which is what pissing me off so bad about him.


I and we always will be thankful for what he did in the past but that's really in the past now and since the lockout he really didnt do much.
