  1. That article by the Caps writer really hit the nail on the head imho. As a fan of the NHL and Devils for two decades now, this lockout has left me absolutely gutted. At the end of the day it's only a sport, but it's a pretty raw feeling when you know that you have lost passion for something that you cared for deeply. I still find myself checking in on TG's blog and I'm pretty sure that I'd rather see the Devils have some success, however, I know for a fact that things just feel different for me after this latest lockout. Sure, money plays a big role in all of this, but that's not my biggest be
  2. I have missed a lot of you guys fwiw. I know there are a lot of old timers here and people who will go to the ends of the Earth for this team. Congrats to you all. The negativity at this place can really be a drain sometimes, but honestly, this is well deserved. Enjoy this. I know a lot of you have waited a long time for this. In a very odd coincidence, I've had the good fortune of meeting a great Devils fan and an even better person during these playoffs. MadDog, you're the man buddy. Die-hard doesn't being to describe this guy. Nothing else I can really say. It;s been a pleasure to sit with
  3. I think they would be hard pressed to be having any fun right now, especially these last two weeks. Sure they're getting paid very well to essentially play a game, but these guys are athletes and competitive by nature. Losing the way they are has to suck something fierce at this point. They have struggled all season long but have basically become the league's doormat over the last ten games. And if any of them are in fact ok with this, they need to gtfo asap.
  4. Or in other words they have no game at all. We're so deep in it that it's not even funny anymore.
  5. CR76, nice effort but it's futile, especially here. I don't know when it became cool to bash the guy but there is a nice group of fans who love to downplay his contributions to the game and what he has done for this team. Let's break down all of his stats and show show how smart I am. Let's devalue the consistency and dedication to your craft required to play 1100 games in one of the most challenging positions in all of sports. A goalie only being as good as the team in front of him? Shocker! Ryan Miller would surely have us fighting for the division lead right now. Whatever the case, trying t
  6. Hopefully tonight officially starts the righting of the ship.

    By now, I'm sure most of you have either read or heard Lemaire's observations of this team. Pretty humbling imho. As much as we like to get on certain players for sucking and what not, these guys are human and I'm sure it's pretty difficult to be a part of something like this. What we are seeing now is a team that has completely hit rock bottom. It seems like they keep getting lower and lower but I just don't see how there is any way possible to dig lower then this. It's Christmas break and the Devils are officially the worst team in the NHL. Insane. I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't a
  8. I proved your point how? Again, is Martin Brodeur as good as he was 5 years ago? No. But I have never said that he was and I'm not expecting him to be either. Of course he is declining, he is on the downside of his career. But it's no where near the level that you guys are claiming. Seriously, listen to yourselves for just a minute. It has gotten to the point where EVERY SINGLE GOAL that Brodeur gives up is a bad goal. I cant remember the last time he allowed a good goal based on this boards standards. Is our defense that damn good that they're denying any strong scoring opportunities? What am
  9. Glad I'm not the only one here who refuses to accept "reality". The first period was brutal. The one goal Marty really needed to have was that third one. Like you said, just a poor rebound. Assuming they would have had the same strong 2nd period, 2 - 0 may have been possible to climb out of, I think.
  10. Zajac definitely did some lazy back checking on that turnover. Kovalcuk hustled his ass off but in doing so, I think he kind of bumped the Islander crashing the net, which caused him to slide into Brodeur and throw him a little off balance. Eh, I can live with that from Zajac I guess. It's a risk you take playing him at the point and up until today, he was doing very well in that role. But breakdowns of this sort have been going on all season.
  11. No arguments here at all. But to be fair, tonight could have possibly been the type of game where if they had gotten a big stop when it was 1 or 2 nothing, maybe they get some puck luck going the other way. They had a chance in this game, I think. It was a wretched start but I thought they played fairly well tonight, although anything is an improvement over their most recent efforts. Then again it could be that was just a result of playing a team nearly as lousy as themselves. I really don't know what to think anymore lol.
  12. When did I say he was not a part of the team? Please show me this. He shoulders the blame tonight, no dispute there. What I'm disputing is your claim that he played like sh!t against the Thrashers or in so many other games because he allowed four goals or what not. The team in front of him was absolute trash that night. Tonight it was reversed. Oh for christ's sakes, are you in the man's head that you can tell he knows it's over for him? When the fvck did we become mind readers here? Obviously he's lost confidence in his game but who knows what the reason is? I don't know how many times I can
  13. Pretty bad performances? So the teams awful play against the Caps and Atlanta means nothing? They were so bad in those games. Look, the Devils were dreadful in tonight's first period but they brought it for the rest of the game and were let down by the goaltending. It's pretty safe to say that, but it's a two way street. The Devils were especially awful in Atlanta. They played like sh!t that game even when Hedberg took over. I have no problem with Hedberg getting some action tbh. What you watched tonight with Marty is not so much a loss of skill as it is a loss of confidence. He was fighting t
