The Devils have pretty much guaranteed they won't be in any more games like this for a long time

 

I got to see Alain Vigneault's pre-game speech and not Deboer's one. I can guess why. If I was in the media and had the ear of anyone in the NHL, I would make sure THAT would guarantee the Devil's didn't see a game like this for a while.

Its a shame too because there are tons of Devils fan here but there is nothing to cheer for. I haven't been this pissed off about a game in awhile.

 

Yes, more Devils then Rangers fans for sure. It's a shame that the flaws of the personnel constructed by a GM who can pretty much do nothing wrong and still be employed ruined the time, money and perhaps even the reputation of the organization on a big stage.

For everyone leaping off the ledge, keep in mind that despite all the pomp and circumstance its a regular season game. It sucks, but days like this happen. Don't slit your wrists.

TRUE. But keep in mind that because of all the pomp and circumstance it is the worst time to fall apart. This team just lost complete legitimacy with this game.

Yeah everything added together. The refusal to give access and play ball leading up to

It, plus laying an egg on top of it all.

Hope Cory gets the start Tuesday against blues

He is. This game pretty much solidified Cory as the starter for 85-90% of the rest of the season.

Meh, I think that's an over-statement. They played a bad game. It happens. I don't see how it soils the reputation of an organization that has an established track record of success because of one sh!tty afternoon in January.

Wait until Pete gets up there and says that Brodeur was the victim of bad luck and bounces and the defense didn't help him and it was one of those days...blah blah blah. 

 

I said earlier this season in a thread that Brodeur getting embarrassed in this game would spell the end for him, but he wasn't embarrassed as much as the score suggested and Pete's going to see it in that way, too.

Thing that sucks is that this team deserves more attention. They've won the cup the second most amount of times in the past 20 years and have arguably the best goalie of all time. But, Kovalchuk splitting, not having a first round pick in what looks like a top 10 spot this year, plus losing terribly in a big event will keep this club in the media basement and an embarrassing organization.

I agree. I saw the interview with Lou during yesterday's televised practice. He seemed very happy to have the Devils participate.
