  1. I kinda wish they’d have let Ruff choose his own coaching staff instead of saddling him with these guys.

  2. While we’re at it, can Marty work with Blackwood on his rebound control? Much more productive use of his time than designing terrible jerseys.

  3. Went with other on “most disappointing” - - has to be Nico for me. Ty has also sucked, but the term sophomore slump exists for a reason, and defense is a tougher position for young players. I’m much more irritated with our 5th year captain who has 2 goals in 21 GP, and has had way too many nights where he was barely noticeable. I used to think Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was Nico’s absolute floor, but at this point it’s looking more like that could be his ceiling. I know he’s only 22 (turns 23 next month), but I expected a lot more from him this season.

  4. Maybe it’s just because I’m in a sh!tty mood that I’m gonna say it this pointedly, but I don’t care- this has nothing the fvck to do with Hughes. He’s played two games out of position after missing a month and a half. If you watched these games and understand what the fvck you’re watching, you should know damn well what the actual problems are.

  8. If Fitz didn’t learn a lesson from watching Shero basically lose his job due to being overly loyal/patient with Hynes then that’s on him if history repeats itself.

  9. Hard to kill Siegenthaler for not having a mean streak, he fits right in with almost everyone else on the team. We don't have any nasty SOBs who take a regular shift. PK throws a nasty slew foot once in a while.

  10. also, instead of blaming literally everything on the 20 year old in his 2nd game back from major injury how about some accountability for the guy in your profile pic? Nico has had like 2 games out of 20 where he was worth a damn this season, and here you are jumping on Jack and his “fan boi’s” seriously wtf?

  11. That's the weird thing uh. You'd think as a veteran HC coming in into a situation and you're given your assistant coaches. You'd be like "okay i'll take them but if it doesnt work i want my men (whoever they are). And well, they are simply not bringing in the results. They simply aren't and NAS straight up never brought results. He's been bad the whole time he was here. I truly but truly don't understand how he still has a job.

  12. Yeah that hard practice really seemed to make an impact Lindy. Try again. Maybe start with sh!tcanning your worthless bench mates.

  14. They need a fvcking wake up call. Too many games now where they’re no-shows for good portions of the game. I’ve fvcking had it with that sh!t.

  15. When players aren’t put in the best position to succeed, gotta start to wonder about the coaching staff. And I’m doing more and more of that.

  16. Good polls, a lot of tough choices. I went with Bratt as the best...he's really stepped up and at times been very dynamic, but not like Hamilton or a couple of others are any less deserving. Johnsson as my most surprising...we we practically begging Seattle to scoop him up in the expansion draft. Some were upset when Bastian was taken instead of him. Severson as my worst...obviously you can make an argument for Ty, but I'm giving him a pass for now for two reasons: 1) Sophomore slump/still very young, and 2) fvcking nASS is not the guy to be mentoring anyone. But Severson has been in the league for how long? He's had his share of defenders for years (at times I was absolutely one of them), but maybe at the end of the day, he's simply just not good? Most disappointing...I went with Sharangovich, but I could have just as easily picked just about anyone on the list. Blackwood is looking more and more like a guy who's going to run too hot and cold to be a true #1. Makes us all realize yet again what we all had in Brodeur...so many kids come up and look promising, but never truly put it all together, or are simply exposed as not being anything special. I get the feeling Blackwood's heading towards "Future 25-or-so-game backup who occasionally fills in as a #1 in a pinch" territory. I thought the Devils record would be a little better, but that's based on expectations (hopes) before the season began. If someone had told me that Hughes was going to miss 17 games (and other players would miss some games), I would've felt differently. I don't think the Devils will make the playoffs, but I really hope that they do. I think the Devils are still in "Let the season die on the vine if Plan A doesn't work out" mode. If they want to give Ruff more time with different assistants (let him choose them...as the HC, if you're behind him, let him do that), I can live with it...it sucks, in that the Devils have tried the "Young coach we'll let grow into the job" route, AND the "Let's bring in an experienced vet" approach...neither has worked out. nASS still being here for as long as he has been is a complete joke...do we ever get to the punchline? Something I was thinking about...obviously young players can come up and wow initially and then never build off that early success (or regress), but damn that seems to happen here a lot. Remember how good Severson looked initially? Butcher? Smith? Are the Devils just really that bad at developing players at the NHL level?

  17. “Derr, you are [insert name calling] because I have no emotional or social intelligence and don’t understand what you said”….you can basically copy this template for every one of your posts. You’re welcome. Do you think them currently having the best record in the western conference early in the season means a team cannot make them look better than what they are? They aren’t cup contenders. Take your meds before posting.

  18. We could really use the Miles Wood of a few years ago. Not necessarily the constant running of goalies, but just that he always played with an edge. He kind of toned it down after he got suspended that one time, but even still, we’re definitely missing him.

  28. I like Fitz, but I’m sorry, if you’re just going to sit back and continue to not address what SORELY needs addressing, that’s a big fvcking problem. How much of the same sh!t does he need to see?

  29. Yeah i wish Fitz could see that wtv system our assistant coaches are trying to get going are just not working, it's very clear. And i'd like to see him to do something about it sooner than later rather than wait until we hit rock bottom. Nas never worked and he never will, let's get someone else for the love of god

  38. These designs are almost trying TOO hard to be different...and failing. The Jersey jersey is a prime example; I understand that some people did actually like it right away, and some of the initial "WTF is THAT?!" reaction is softening, but I hate that something that could have been REALLY cool and badass (a black Devils jersey) has turned into a "Well we can laugh at ourselves ha ha ha" moment. So not what I wanted out of a possible black Devils 3rd. And that Trashville jersey...I can't believe a design like that actually made past the initial brainstorming sessions. That is awful.
