Yes, it's absolutely pathetic that they're losing to the teams that are very, very good. How dare they.
Dude, come off it. We're not saying they should dominate or be competitive, but it would be at least comforting to know we're a thron in their side. These are the teams we'll face in the playoffs if we make the playoffs.
Yes, playoffs and regular season are different ballgames, but the confidence created to play in the playoffs is generated through the regular season and I'm pretty sure if the playoffs happened today and the Devils were set to play one of these 4 teams their confidence wouldn't be high at all.
I mean remember 09-10? We didn't have a very good regular season record against Philly and they beat us handily in the playoffs. I'm pretty sure out regular season record against the Flyers, consciously or subconsciously, had something to do with us being beaten like a drum by them in the playoffs.
