  1. Well, the only saving grace is that Doc and Chico at least make you feel somewhat "good," despite the situation, with what happens to the Devs...

    Here's what happens...

    First things first...

    1. The Devs need a coach. They need a coach that can motivate, and get the best out of what ever players he has...Maybe Jaque Demers, Tommy McVie still interested in a job?

    2. Lou needs to wheel and deal for some PP scorers (alla Gonchar)...what are the Devs willing to give up in exhange...

    1. Whitey, Madden, Gomer, Kozy...?

    3. The Devs get Elias back, preferably by mid-January, early February....

    4. The Devs make a rush for the playoffs....

  2. In all honesty, devs make the playoffs and alot of people will start the " we are only a player or 2 away" crap..

    this team is about 6 or 7 players away, I just hope we become true contenders again while Marty is still in his prime...

    <{POST_SNAPBACK}>

    Remember, a new arena will have to have many seats filled....it's tough to fill seats in this market if your team sucks...so, believe it or not, the Devs HAVE TO play well in order to increase revenue prospects and to cover their costs...

  3. Triumph- definitely, if we are comparing player to player, then Bertuzzi and Moore cannot be compared. However, taking into consideration the human element of the matter, Moore is just as entitled to be treated humanely as is Bertuzzi...

    I mean, think about it, the ASPCA will send you to jail if you hurt a dog or cat, why should now Bertuzzi be treated differently for maiming another human being...your argument simply does not hold water...

    Chiamaira...British food cannot be compared to Italian food...are you kidding me? ;-)

  4. I think it's more likely that Team Canada assembled a team designed to win a gold medal than to appeal to Italians.

    <{POST_SNAPBACK}>

    Apparently, according the CP, Bertuzzi's selection is a very big controversy in Canada...especially among hockey enthusiasts!

  5. DevsFan26- you make a good point, but I believe to appeal to the "broader" non-NHL following audience, team Canada may have selected Bertuzzi to appeal to the public...

    Maybe they'll show him on Italian TV having a pizza eating competition...

    Who knows...the possibilites are endless...

  6. Mark Recchi is Italian/Canadian...I hope the American team gets the best cooks there...the Canadians will get a British cook

    PS...when the Italian national soccer team plays abroad they bring their own cooks, own food, own pots, and own pans...they take over the hotel kitchen...it's an amazing operation!

  7. Fellas, I travel to Italy a lot, and their own league doesn't even have a web site, therefore I highly doubt the Italians know about it...

    At least there are two Italian/Canadians on the team (one on the taxi squad)...Jason Spezza and Roberto Luongo...

    The Islanders messed up trading Luongo, Spezza, and Chara...

    Italy will be destroyed against Canada...guaranteed...

    PS...I think Gio is Italian/American too...

  8. OK, many of us are surprised to see Bertuzzi getting selected over guys like Spezza, Crosby, and Staal...

    But here's my theory, do you think that Team Canada officials may have considered selecting Bertuzzi to the Canadian Olympic team giving the "Italian-ness" of his last name? I mean, the games are being played in Italy, and Bertuzzi may have significant "PR" value in Italy (especially considering that no one there knows what he did to Steve Moore), and could probably give Italy the idea that Italians are indeed hockey players?

    Long shot theory, but just wanted to figure out your thoughts...

    Cheers.

  9. Shouldn't Langdon call up Malakhov and find out what the process is to fill out retirement papers? C'mon, this guy is horrendous!

    We need more from Rasmussen...

    Let's see if Columbus will give us Mike Rupp back in exchange for Langdon...

    I'd even take Dagenais at this point...

    That's how desperate I am....

  10. Fellas, this is the first I am hearing of us offering more money to Nieds...I was under the impression that he wanted a longer term deal, and thus went to Anaheim...

    These guys got themselves into this mess, and they must get themselves out of it...

    Period!

  11. The fact of the matter is that the Devs hang their heads too soon when going down by a goal or so...

    There's no identity on the blue line...Raffy isn't putting up the numbers he's supposed to...

    I'll tell you, I would have much rather have offered Nieds a little more money, as he can play both sides of the puck, rather than Raffy...

    I'd love to have 'em both, but I think Nieds is the better defender....

  12. Well, sundstrom, it's very hard. But if you bleed Devils red and black, you have to stick with them no matter what. It could always be worse. You could be a Blues or Blue Jackets fan. You're still a game over .500 and in playoff contention despite no Elias. And you'll get him back eventually. That should be a boost.

    Btw...Parise was the best forward for your team tonight. He's got talent. Now you see it when he gets actual ice-time.

    If not for Brodeur, this would have been about 7 or 8-2.

    <{POST_SNAPBACK}>

    Parise? The guy cannot stick handle in the zone for smack...he scored a lucky break-out goal...one that Jiri Bicek could have scored two years ago...I want to see more puck control from Parise...make guys chase you

  13. Our defense is absolutely disgusting! You can absolutely tell tonight that a guy like Niedermayer is really, really missed!

    We just don't have it...McGillis and Brown need to take a seat on the bench...at this point, I would rather take a gamble on Hale playing regular minutes...

    No shot on the point...no shot...! Any way to coherse Pittsburgh to cough up Gonchar for McGillis? I know, wishful thinking...

    Bright Spots...

    Elias will come back before the end of the season, therefore he could sign some autographs at the games...

    Unreal!

  14. It's hard to shoot the puck when you don't have someone who can do so. The Devs, with the exception of Brown and McGillis, don't have someone, even a forward, who has a laser of a shot...alla Richer, Friesen, Sykora...

    Maybe when Elias gets back we have another point man...

    The Devs need to start looking for a shooter...

    I've got the solution...work on one-touch passing to get the goaltender moving side to side...sooner or later you'll get the shot in...

  15. Parise, Martin, and Langenbrunner are not playing well enough to even merit consideration to play for the women's national team...

    However, Pando should have been selected...I'm disappointed that Pando won't be going...he would have made a great addition....

    Sorry Pando! You're still our favorite!

  16. Guys...this is the New York/New Jersey area...remember, Lamoriello has an Italian last name...so, with that being said, Malakhov is retired, and that's final. He'll take an envelope with some cash in it, and call it a day...he's been made an offer he can't refuse, and so he'll return to Russia with some pocket change, and never look back...

    Get it...
