Good times seeing people throwing shade at us for the crowd tonight. If the weather was perfect we'd likely see 13.5-14K announced but alas the roads are in really bad shape right now

In Topic: This is Not a GDT for DEVILS vs. FLYERS

Buzz words are fun. If anything, the Devils were trapping Philly in their own end.

 

I had a Flyers fan over at a bar in New Hope tell me right after the 2012 finals run that the Devils won the series by trapping the Flyers every game and that the Devils ruined the game by trapping for 25 years.

 

He had no answer when I asked him to explain why the Devils scored 295 goals in 2000-01 when they were according to him "still using the trap."

 

I wish these fans would shut their trap more often.

There's a real line in the sand for me on which Devils fans I can't stand. There's a larger and larger contingent of fans almost rooting for Schneider to fail.

 

They're booing him this year, and they rooted against him last year when Brodeur was with us. A 1-0 (let's not count the ENG with 0.3 seconds left) loss on Wednesday and 3-0 (not including ENG) loss on Saturday are all on Schneider, according to this contingent. No mention of goal-scoring, no mention of anything. Goaltending lost the game, they say.

 

It drives me up a wall and the more we lose the more these people are popping out of the woodwork. People still want Marty, and you'd think that 7-4 game he lost a few days ago would've quieted that sentiment a bit, but it hasn't.

 

I know social media is not the best judge of these sorts of things but it is pretty awful to see Cory getting chirped by Devils fans on Twitter/Facebook/Instagram after every goal against -he's even getting chirped on videos from practices and morning skates. While it is fair to want and expect him to be playing better, would it hurt to show the guy who signed a long term deal to be our starter a little bit of support? The team's problems are bigger than Cory and Keith at this point in time.
