Highway to hell. That's my choice if we had to change the damn thing.

the main problem with NJ is having too many "guys who play the game the right way" who does everything good but can't capitalize on chances. So we always endup having all kind of stats going our way as if we should be great but the puck doesnt go in.

 

I mean it's somehow better than having bunch of snipers who can't play a system. the base is there we just need to get the puck rolling in our favour in term of goals a little more. Scoring is our only problem. We're good defensively, good goaltending, we possess the puck but we can't score

So is the key to how you'll feel about the up coming season. Is the lack of finish because of luck or is it the skill of not finishing?

This is very true.  However, most running backs are lucky if they play 10 seasons.  Goalies can play up until their early 40s easily, moreso than skaters.

 

Well its for different reasons. In the NFL its because they get abused so much that you won't get many years out of a running back compared to other positions. Also its a plus to be young, athletic (compared to an older running) and cheap. Younger guys are faster and most running backs are interchangeable because they just want someone who is fast and stupid enough to be a running back. In the NHL its more that the difference between mid 20s quality through and even into the top 10 isn't as great as it once was.

 

Also so many running backs and goalies can put up great numbers due to being products of systems. Running backs behind a great offensive line and goalies behind a defensive system that you don't have to have the most talented ones to make that system work. In the NHL if you have that one guy you can rely on its such a relief because you don't have to worry every year about who your goalie is going to be or switching in and out the hot hand. Plus if you can trust them in the playoffs that's even better.

If everyone plays like they should. Means 20 goals plus from Ryder, Jagr, Elias, and Henrique, goaltending doing what it should, defense playing like it should, and getting something out of those who had down years like Brunner and Zubrus and this team should easily make the playoffs. Now the question is will they.

I am sure it can be done anywhere. Roy Halladay did it with the Jays this off-season. It's only ceremonial, right?

 

But why does he need it with the Devils if he never signed anywhere else? The point is you left for so many seasons to another team but you've always been associated with said team thus the 1 day contract.

 

I hate it because its just ceremonial nonsense. Retire by announcing it with the team does there need to be any more to that? Not like anyone is going to remember or care that you did
