People that think this isn't a bad team...just imagine if we played in the West <shudder>

 

We're like 3-6-2 against West teams so far I think.

At this point I don't think either team would be any worse if Pete was coaching the football Jets and Rex was coaching the Devils :P


Without Gelinas they are lost offensively.

Gelinas hasn't even been Gelinas offensively the last few weeks, I can't remember the last slapshot bomb he had.

I try to be reasonable.  I'm actually not nearly as pissed as many have been about this season to date...I think mostly because I didn't have terribly high expectations coming into this season...once Lou finished making his offseason moves I saw an "if" team that might be pretty good if everything broke right.  Of course, with "if" teams, things don't often break right...not enough, anyway.  This is a team in transition that will soon filter out the last link to the "old guard" (Elias).  The older "we signed them because we didn't have prospects of our own" guys will soon follow.  A completely new identity will be coming out of necessity...even more so if Lou soon leaves (he can't do this forever).

 

I've tried HF and devilsrule, and neither did anything for me.  This is really the only message board that I spend serious time on.  Crash does an awesome job with football every week, so I get my football fix there.  I take part in the Met thread every year too, but at times it feels more like my own blog, due to the other guys not posting as much as I'd like. 

 

re the Devils: On paper they were supposed to be improved from the teams that were so Corsi/Fenwick friendly and were 'unlucky' to not make the playoffs and if anything it's gone the other way and they're honestly lucky to have the record they have, but now the ****'s hitting the fan big-time.  The Devils' struggles also doesn't help the general mood around here to say the least.

 

re the Mets: it's hard to get motivated to watch the Mets enough to pay attention when clearly they're willing to punt seasons.  Last year was the first time in ages I didn't even go to a Met game.  Hopefully there'll be a resurgence of activity in that folder in '15.

Have the Devils actually had a dangerous chance yet?

This is some lousy hockey. Par for the course.

 

Maybe that Calgary game broke them.

So is it some requirement that we have to go like 15 minutes every 1st period before getting a scoring chance

 

Pete's trying to beat Rex to the unemployment line :P
