    Yeah Johnsson has been very unimpressive so far. Something about Swedes with last names starting with the letter J- they don’t seem to work out here. 

    more like swedes with names ending with "son"

    One mistake? I'm far from a Palms hater, quite the contrary. But he's made wayyyyyy more than one mistake since the start of the year. His play has been pretty much horrendous on both ends of the ice. A one game scratch here wouldn't be extreme at all.

    your sarcasm detector appears to be ineffective haha

    I know nobody knows my stance on this issue, but holy sh!t i am desperate for Palmieri to get benched / replaced on hughes line.

    i don't think you should call for such a drastic move after a guy makes only one mistake

    A lot of underlying numbers don't point to anything that's currently happening (record-wise) being sustainable...they're getting badly outshot and outchanced, though I feel like they've played better than some of those numbers suggest...I thought the Devils played a very solid game last night, and even in the 4-1 loss to the Isles, they played pretty well in the second...it doesn't feel like EVERYTHING they've managed so far was due to insane luck (and that's a good thing).

    And yeah, I keep reminding myself that even if the Devils are due for some regression, they still have reinforcements waiting in the wings.  Hughes has looked great so far...can't see him falling off a cliff and turning back into the player he was last season.  And I do think this team is pretty well-coached...we got so used to DBA and DBA 2.0 not really having any answers that it makes us appreciate a coach who sees his team struggling, and realizes that he needs to make some changes, to at least give his team a chance to perform better.  For sure, this team has gotten a LOT of great goaltending, so that is helping in a huge way, but seeing how the Devils looked against the Isles in this past game vs. how they looked on Thursday has me very optimistic about what Ruff might be able to do.   

    Yeah managing expectations is very very important. It's good to enjoy the ride when we're winning or playing well but we need to remember this team is not ready yet.

    I remember saying that making the playoffs that year with Hall would likely be a blessing in disguise cause we were not that good but now many fans would expect that from the team from now on. And sure enough lol

    I mean, people can get their hopes up and then get incredibly mad and upset when the team doesn't deliver on their expectations... its up to them but i wouldnt recommend lol

    god dammnit i thought i fixed it before anyone could reply

    listen. i said Andersson instead of Johnsson and Hischier instead of Hughes.. So obviously i'm having a long a slow stroke okay. And mocking the situation is a dick move.

  6. I really love what Ruff is doing with the rookies too. He's trusting them, willing to live with their mistakes.

    Putting Hughes, Sharangovich and Smith together in OT. When McLeod made a mistake leading to a goal at the end of a period. His line was sent on the ice to open the next period and they got a goal.

    He knows bastian and mcleod are close friends and he's keeping them together.

    Small things like this goes a long way.

    I'm still so fvcking upset thinking back at how coaches like Deboer were treating the young guys. They'd make a mistake and get benched for the rest of the period and our old over the hills vet would literally get away with MURDER non-stop with no consequences.

    Also still so upset that Deboer didn't even put Larsson in the lineup for his ONE chance to play against his idol Lidstrom. And instead dressed god knows which 78 years old veteran. Again, small things like this goes a very long way.

    Not gonna get ahead of myself and start calling for the calder (like i've seen an insane amount of Habs fans do with Romanov... literally 2 games into the season lol) but it's great that he's having a solid start after not making the team last year. I'm sure that's a bit weight off his shoulder now

  8. i swear when we take a penalty. It's basically like watching basketball when there's a foul and a free throw is awarded.

    Buddy with the ball is just standing there taking his time, not challenged or pressured, prepping his shot. While the other team players are just standing there, at a distance waiting for him to take his shot.

  9. It's not fun when your team sucks... but there's a sort of peacefulness that comes with accepting it lol You're kind of untouchable when it comes to people chirping lol

    A few of my pals are diehard Vancouver fans and were SO cocky recently. And im seeing them getting trolled online and getting soooo upset about it. Cause they have expectations and emotionally engaged lol

    Recently anyone trying to mock me because of the devils im just like calmly going "yeah they are pretty bad, it's going to be a long season". Well that's stripping away any leverage out of someone trying to troll me haha

    He must’ve broken something. Fitz used the word ‘calcification’ when talking about it. But I don’t get it because Nico talked about being ready for opening night and here we are four games in and he’s still not even practicing. Hairline fracture maybe? Either way it’s concerning it wasn’t a minor injury. And of course had to sustain it in fvckin December.

    Yeah cause at first i think he was supposed to miss training camp and thats it (i believe).. but now he's on pace to miss like... 10-15 games so was there really no setback?

    I'm not sure what you're trying to say, other than having a knee jerk reaction to the thought that PK might have gotten a compliment.

    I'm didn't say he averages a good 25 minutes, just that I wonder who on our roster would step in to play those minutes once he is gone. It'll be a big opportunity for another player. I even pointed out that Severson is getting the second most minutes. Murray is third. 

    well your reaction is the knee jerk reaction.

    What im trying to say is that it's the same problem we had having andy green playing top pairing and 25 minutes a game. We don't have good depth and we have guys playing more minutes than they should. A guy like PK should be playing sheltered minutes in the top 4. Just like Andy Greene playing 15 minutes a night is probably more than fine on a team.
