He scored did he not? Who else with all our dudes injured should be in? If Bernier is on the first power play when Cam, Hav and Henrique are in, then its an issue. But that's not the case now is it? No.

The fact that you tried to defend this made me laugh.

Well, that's it. Lou obviously will be very concerned about a fan petition to fire the coach. He'll probably fire DeBoer tomorrow now.

Oh wow! Someone on the team stood up for another player! Cool.

Yeah, it took a 20 year old to stickup for his teammates... same scruff, Captain Fantastic was last to join in... Sal is slow even behind his own net defending his team... how demoralizing. What a difference looking at the Captaincy of Sal vs. any other Dev leader of the past.

 

BTW: Severson 26:07 TOI

I guess that good feeling I had before when I made the GDT was just gas.

This team is just infuriating to watch. I have up watching closely after the first period. Without havlat and especially cammy, we are basically last year's team but with better goaltending but much worse PK.

I think three years after getting the modern era record for best PK they are really trying to get the record for worst modern era PK

Lou needs to look in the mirror...

 

This is the result of  years of poorly handling acquisitions, trades, contracts, players, and coaches. Grant some blame can go on VanderBleek's drama.

 

I think there was a movie about this organization, the movie: Twelve O'Clock High  (where all the; washed-up, misfits, reckless, underachievers, excess-baggage, low morale, etc, wound up together as the 'Leper Colony' )

A playoff bubble team (that's something pretty much all Devils fans could expect before the year) are missing their key free agent acquisition and best offensive player. They are also missing their other free agent acquisition to help them score. They have played without Henrique (a top 4 forward) and Merrill the last two games. Last years super risky free agent acquisition (coming off the 3 concussions in 4 months) has now most likely suffered his 3rd concussion in 12 months as a Devil. The are relying on two forwards with the combined age of 80 to be gigantic contributors for them (not likely to happen). They played two very solid games against a top 4 team in the league, and laid an egg on a back-to-back with 4 forwards that weren't on their opening night lineup (this game really sucked)

 

They are only 5-6-2. Yet the only one to blame is Pete Deboer. Of course.

It's a damn shame Jagr has to end his career on this **** team, or end his career being a rent-a-player at the deadline and then going somewhere else random next year.

No NHL team is taking him next year.

I especially hated that part last year when he led the team in scoring.

He is also leading the team in scoring this year as well (tied anyway). Damn him.

How long do we have zero accountability ANYWHERE for losing two straight years, and it sure as shooting looks like a third straight year now?  

 

Again this idea that coaches with bad teams should never be fired is misleading, coaches get fired all the time on bad teams.  Besides they're going through the motions right now with a bunch of vets underachieving.  That's usually the tell for when a coaching change is about to be made.  Lou's tolerated a lot the last couple years but I don't think he's going to tolerate more 'efforts' like tonight or a 60% PK...you don't need a lot of talent to have an NHL PK.

 

If you don't want a coaching change fine but can SOMETHING happen at least?  They can't just lah-de-dah a third straight year away without doing anything of consequence.  Start selling off the old guys for assets, maybe trade one of the D for some help up front and start remaking this team.
