GDT: Devils at Calgary 10 PM

The perfect storm of BS that caused Calgary to win is mine bending.

 

Pulling the goalie with 3:30 to go and scoring twice. And we had some opportunities at an empty net, not great ones...still missed

 

The Hudler goal that JUST BARELY trickled in

 

Jagr handing the puck to Calgary instead of taking a knee

 

Calgary actually scoring with 5 seconds to go

 

Devils having a chance to win the shootout but Dumboer letting Henrique shoot. And then having Zajac try to tie it. Zajac I think is like 0 for his last 2 years in the shootout. Just bad roster management.

I did. They won't be in a playoff position by then since there's only one game left before Thanksgiving. But I've been calling for a trade to happen since the Winnipeg loss.

What trade?!? Why? To limp into the playoffs? Just unload the dead weight at the deadline and enjoy a nice early pick in June.

Nope never.

I do because it's to show that every team in the league blows leads. Even the best teams in the league like Nashville.

Difference of course being that Nashville leads their division and the Devils are below 500. Nashville can handle letting points slip away Edited by Devil Dan 56

I too was scratching my head at Pete's shootout decisions. 7 is right about zajac and henrique as they are just not that good at it (I don't care about how the shootout is all luck and crap, you still need skill in there). At least he didn't put in elias again who hasn't scored on in what seems like since the 11-12 season.

I would like to see guys like Larsson and zidlicky get a chance. Hell I would even be in favor of zubrus and gionta at this point. Better than putting in the same guys who do the same moves every shootout and not score.

This.  I'm glad someone else can actually notice the big picture, and look at things rationally.

No team ever unloads, even the really bad teams.  A team like Buffalo might sell off 1 or 2 key guys, and that's it.  I also never said anything about buying or selling.  I simply said trade.  So there was no reason to believe I would want a trade to make the playoffs.

I would rather miss the playoffs and get a shot at a possible generational talent than make the 8th spot to be one and done.

Even if we only have a 2% chance at getting that #1 pick if we miss the playoffs I'm all in for that. I know you would appreciate that because of you being an advocate of low percentage chances.

Ok I see this post here and then when I go to the Fire pete deboer thread I see you just posted this:

"I do want Lou to sell after tonight's disappointment. But I doubt he will."

Ummm ok?

Well you keep ignoring key points.  While I have ignored nothing.

 

except how saying things like "every team does this" is not proof or a point. Because it doesn't make a case against what we all know.

 

That this team is really bad right now, even when things are really clicking we find ways to lose the game. BAD Teams do that, good teams find ways to win.

 

Also for someone so out of touch with reality its hilarious that you would tell someone else that.

Yea, and have you been on a Nashville Preds forum? I'm pretty sure they would be flipping sh!ts all over the place like we are now. If your point was that other teams blow leads, of course they do, happens in every sport. If your point was that we shouldn't react like we are, then you are far from correct.

Well we got the number 4 pick in 2011 on a 3.6% chance I believe.  I do like the idea of getting McDavid, but I don't advocate tanking under any circumstance.  But I AM willing to sell our veteran assets.

My point is teams don't clean house like that.  I'm all for selling some of our assets, but blowing it up isn't realistic.

I'm in touch with reality.  You guys aren't.

But at least see how we blew this lead.  Hudler's goal was a fluky bounce.  The tying goal was a bad decision by Jagr mostly.  You have to see things from the proper perspective.

 

I'm almost positive that if the Devils and Calgary switched places, that people would say the Devils got lucky.  I'm sure you guys would still be bashing the team in some manner.

Scott clemmson looks great, those words came out of your mouth tonight. How's that for a reality check.

There's really no point Sneax... Let him live in his delusional little world where the Devils are great and everything is just rosy and wonderful and he's in touch with reality and literally everyone else is obviously crazy.

I'm begging you to please find one instance where I said the Devils are great and everything is rosy.  Please.
