#1292118 Why i deeply believe deboer should go.

Posted by Mike Brown on 01 December 2014 - 03:08 AM

What we need is a good defensive minded coach.  Deboer is not it.  When you have a slower roster, offensive minded systems don't work. Just look at the Devils from 2005-2008.  Specifically focus on the 2007-2008 Devils.  http://www.hockey-re...s/NJD/2008.html































How did THAT team win 46 games, and finish with 99 points?  Well the big reason was because Marty was amazing that year.  But the other big reason was because of coaching.  Brent Sutter had a good defensive system in place.  I don't believe for a second that that roster is better than the current one.  The 07-08 team had 3 players finish with 50 or more points, and one player finish with 60 points. And our current defense is much better than that team.


I think if the current Devils were to have a good defensive coach, we'd have more wins than we do know.  Deboer is too offensive minded, and his system is terrible for the roster we currently have.  The neutral zone play is bad.  Even if there is no better coach available, I still think a shakeup is in order.  Hell just change things up.  It wouldn't hurt to try.

Wait until Thanksgiving for this thread.  If we're still out by then, then Lou should sell.

#1260889 2013-2014 Attendance

Posted by Mike Brown on 13 April 2014 - 05:00 PM

Including the Outdoor game, our average attendance was 15,868.

Not including the Outdoor game, our average attendance was 15,012.

Good stuff MB thanks for the stats all season.




I was intrigued by this year because of new ownership mostly.  That's mostly why I decided to keep track of it this year.  Considering we were coming off a year where we missed the playoffs, and we'll have to do the same thing next season as well.

#1251294 GDT: YOUR New Jersey Devils @ Detroit 7:30PM

Posted by Mike Brown on 07 March 2014 - 10:30 PM

Time to break down all 7 goals.


1. No chance

2. No chance

3. Had a chance, but it was a nicely placed shot by Franzen.

4. BAD BAD goal.

5. Had a chance, but tough save to make through a screen.

6. No chance, but could have placed the rebound a little bit better.

7. No chance.


Terrible defensive game.  Just awful.

#1250358 The Official 2014 Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by Mike Brown on 05 March 2014 - 06:49 PM

I wouldn't care about pissed Brodeur except that I know pissed Brodeur probably means he will get a shot for a lot of games.


Looking at the Vanek trade...and looking at the Devils deal. Just have to shake your head.


Marty can go fvck himself. No one wanted him.


I am curious as to what went on behind the scenes with all of this.  If Marty is actually pissed that he's still here (I'd really like to give him the benefit of the doubt on that one), it's truly a shame.  This final chapter seems to be getting uglier by the day.  There's going to be a much higher percentage of "Thank God, just GO already" Devil fans if Marty retires or signs with someone else than I ever thought.


Who is?


Everybody.  It's disgusting seeing him being treated like this.  All of the posts above I quoted are major overreactions.  Nobody has a damn clue what's going on in his head.  He's been very professional about everything.  He hasn't been in any way disrespectful either.  The guy has done more to earn his right to vent about playing time, then any fan has done to whine about his frustration.

The Russians are Finnished (see what I did there).
Right about now I expect Kovy to be on the phone “take me back Lou!”


I'd take him back.

I seriously hate it when Zidlicky doesn't shoot.  Why would he stop doing it when it was the reason he was so good early on?  That play in the 1st is inexcusable.


Now for tomorrow night.  I think it's fair to say we need to win this in regulation.  But even if they don't it'll be fine.


But seriously, a regulation win is needed for morale more than anything,
