  1. All I’ve got at this point is given how much better they looked in general prior to the Covid outbreak (and how much THREE teams have struggled in dealing with the aftermath)...can’t help but wonder how much this could be affecting them...not that the outbreak gives this team a free pass for every last issue, but can’t deny that this is a serious factor. Just sucks that it’s already another “Maybe next year” kind of season. Seen a lot of those in the last decade.

  5. I feel partly responsible for our terrible play as of late because I stopped MD2020's GDT streak a few weeks ago, even though we've won since then, so I'm making today's thread to try to right the ship. Regarding the game, I have no idea what to say anymore. They've just been bad all around lately, it's not even in one particular area anymore. The PP/PK still suck, but now so does the defense, and Blackwood too. They've lost all confidence and seemingly all ability. Sometimes it takes hitting rock bottom before you can turn things around. Let's hope that's already happened, and maybe

  6. Wedgwood has looked solid but they really need to get a goal first and actually have a lead, might boost their confidence.

  7. According to Amanda Stein it's Wedge in goal with Mac as backup and Murray coming in for Butcher. How Vats isn't sitting after the last game is beyond me. He has looked terrible since he's been back. She also said McLeod is taking warmups and Goose isn't.

  8. You’re acting like there’s black and white and no gray. Nobody is saying they want Daneyko to say “oh get this fvcking trash heap off the ice”. But infuriating an entire fanbase by screaming “OH MYYYYY” at every missed chance and acting like the Devils are losing based on pure luck every single game is infuriating. Chico was a homer, but Chico knew when to shut the fvck up. Did you play sports growing up? The car ride home, if your dad was rambling about how the loss wasn’t your fault and how unlucky you were and wouldn’t shut the fvck up, do you remember how annoying that is?

  11. PK was right yesterday - most of the time the are beating themselves. If they don't collapse under pressure and manage to make tape to tape passes, they have a chance against any team. Easier said than done for a team that's been rolling downhill and isn't mentally strong. Anyway go Devils...at least don't make it easy for ratface and Co.

  13. So hard to compare a fifth-year Q player to a guy in just his second full season in the SHL. Yeah right now it’s definitely easier to feel good about Mercer than Holtz...I just don’t know if it’s based on anything truly legit.

  17. For sure, having met the “real” Chico on multiple occasions, he was definitely much more critical of the Devils (both on and off the ice) than he was on TV. Who even knows how much of the real Dano we’re getting? Admittedly, from Erika, I don’t mind her trying to sound enthusiastic and hopeful, regardless of how bad the team is struggling. But from guys like Sal and Dano, I’d like to hear some real honesty....I get that they won’t go all the way with it, but at least don’t reign it in SO far that you’re coming off as lying company men who can barely criticize what needs criticizing.

  18. I mean nobody has to tell Dano to be a homer, the dude is the real life Mr. Devil. I do think there’s some truth to the fact MSG wants homer broadcasts in general though. Especially when they go out of their way to update ‘the playoff chase’ when the Devils are twelve points back in late February lol. OTOH Chico was always ripped for being a homer on TV but on the radio he doesn’t pull punches as much. He doesn’t have a mean bone in his body but he gets his point across, he’s even criticized Blackwood the last few games.

  19. I just watched the highlights on Youtube. One goal, he took it from coast to coast. On another, he beat his defender and the goalie on a wraparound.

  20. Yeah I’ll always be a big fan of Daneyko the ultimate lunchpail guy who was a part of three Cup winners here, but Dano the color guy is not an easy listen. He was never a natural fit to begin with, and he’s not showing any signs of growing into the job.

  28. I know you can’t really compare the SHL to the Q, but I honestly think you can make a case that Mercer is our #1 prospect at this point. Especially if you factor in his two-way game.

  30. Yes did see that, and it’s enough to make me wonder if I should keep grading the Devils on the same curve as all of the other teams who didn’t have to deal with so many players getting sick. A woman that I know who was sick well over a month ago (and who was in excellent shape) is still struggling to get back to where she was prior, in terms of both her strength and endurance. And of course we’ve heard of various individuals dealing with longer-term effects, even though they’ve technically “recovered”. Definitely got me wondering how much an NHL hockey team can be derailed by Covid.

  33. He's just not very good at being color commentator, and when the team isn't playing too well he REALLY sticks out like a sore thumb with his platitudes. In the NY area, he's not as good as Butch Goring and light years away from Micheletti.

  34. Playing Devil's advocate a bit but are there really any color commentators out there that are that negative? In a normal season they are around the locker room and guys a lot so that line of criticism/sh!tting on the guys is a fine one to walk. I really don't mind the broadcast finding some positives to talk about or them trying to not sh!t on everything. I get enough of the negative aspects of everything (which are rightfully being expressed with how bad this team is) on here, HF and some social media if I wanna go there too. I really don't think we need to hear all that

  43. Vorachek called out an HF poster.. Just copying and pasting my post from HF about this... I think there's a big difference of reading the regular beat reporters articles since he actually deals with them on a normal basis(as well as face to face in the past) and people who actively tag him on social media but coming on HF or other message boards is the equivalent of vanity searching. Maybe it motivates him to play better but it's definitely interesting lol I think this is a place where we come to actively vent our frustrations out about our teams to one another but th

  44. But it did. Once you used it a while, the layers of tape would get fused together and it was super smooth on the top and bottom. Only issue was playing in the summer, when a hard slap shot might make it less round because it was so soft from the heat. i also lodged one in a goalie's mask once.
