    Hope you guys don't mind my 2 cents. I truly believe it's mostly little things every player does which creates an overall good or bad impression of a team's game, rather than one guy (goaltender) with a huge responsibility that gives or destroys the team's confidence. There are exceptions of course like Taylor Hall on the Devils. But even a guy like him who commits every night can't provide success single handedly. We just came out of a 4 game winning streak. Was KK better in his 3 out of 4 wins than tonight? Subjective. I personally don't think so. However, Hynes who probably was pissed a bit at Kink during the post game, still picked him over Lack who literally stole for us the toughest of 4 games vs Tampa. I shouldn't say it, but if I was a Devil player I'd feel more comfortable playing in front of Lack. Again, KK played more, but Lack played better...in my opinion. On the other hand, when your offense is inconsistent and defense constantly fails to clear the zone, plays softer than the opposition, turns pucks over and allows 30+ SOG on a regular basis, then your only answer to the problem is Brodeur, Roy or Hasek...even Lundquist. I agree, there may even be no obvious answer for us fans, and I also think Hynes made some really poor decisions lately...but what do I know after all? I watched a few Vegas games trying to understand what makes this team so successful. I didn't see anything special other than Fleury playing like a HOF. They don't squeeze the sticks and they have fun playing. Is it Fleury who makes them so confident? I don't know, but IMO many teams below them are more skilled and come playoffs, I won't be surprised to see them kicked out in the first round.

    We'll make the playoffs. Go Devs.

    Not the day he can be proud of for sure. Should've stopped that shot. But you're right - Bob shut the door.

    Your 12,682 posts give me some hope you could do better.

    No doubt. I appreciate responses and I know how public forums work. There's a difference though between posting an emotional statement and getting personal.

    That one problem. The other is they have trouble dealing with bouncing pucks and rebounds in front of both nets. Sometimes it looks like they are not even trying to anticipate them. We call it bad luck but I think it's the skill too. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    We kicked their AZZ in the first game in Columbus, but the team was flying and everything was going right. Jackets didn't get much better since then but we are out of synch. Our season is a roller coaster which is understandable, but some players really need to improve their game ASAP. Right now it's literally 3-4 players who are consistent and productive. Others...you never know what the'll bring.

    Man, this guy deserved the playoffs like no one else.
  9. GDT: Columbus @ Devils 7:00 PM

    Fair enough man. You got it right.
  10. GDT: Columbus @ Devils 7:00 PM

    I'm sure no one is counting us out of playoffs. I'm also sure most of us, myself included, are pissed off. We are fans and that's what we do when our team loses.

    Unfortunately agree

    I never give up on my team, but please don't tell me it looked like they had their legs to make it at least more intense. I commented on what I saw from the start of the game. UNFORTUNATELY.

    Hey, no one is happy I'm sure. No hard feelings. I'm a bit annoyed of watching 2-3 players trying to carry the entire team on their backs. I don't care about stats and +/- nonsense. They didn't come out hungry enough to return the favor of possibly take the Flyers' spot or whatever else we can think of. That's what pisses me of as a fan of a team that can be so much better than that.

    I'm not predicting anything. It's been the trend lately and sure thing I don't want any of that. And what do you know about me as a fan?
