Headed out of work a few hours early. 82-0 hype train lets go. Jersey: packed Tickets: printed Vodka: waiting Rangers: fvck the Cock: out LETS fvckING GO DEVILS

Good news is that players are not fans and can shake off bad losses much better than fans do.  It wasn't a good first outing - trouble with zone exits, and more importantly, trouble with establishing the puck in Winnipeg's zone - they got a couple of chances in transition but rarely had the puck at the point or in the corners for very long.

 

I liked what Kalinin was able to do.  Lot of good plays out of him - he seems like an NHLer.  Took some big hits though - may have to adjust to that.

 

Wasn't particularly enamored of anyone on the defense, but I think it will take time for things to come together there.  Larsson had some nice plays and some ugly ones, ditto Severson.

fvck our fans. Seriously. The entire third period people were yelling "whoooo!". I don't know if it was ironically or drunkenly but I wanted to kill them. One moron kept yelling "zubrus sucks". Someone else yelled "we need Marty".

I can deal with a loss. I can't deal with these fvcking idiots.

Gionta absolutely isn't NHL caliber anymore. They might give him a few more games but they need to jettison him when Elias gets back and cycle in the younger forwards for better looks.

Offense is going to be a problem again this year. Jets look like a solid team to me and if their goaltending holds up could be a dark horse playoff contender this year.

Whoever plays the songs and audio clips started that. They played a Ric Flair wooo clip and people started doing it and then they played it again.

It amazes me how much attention the 4th line gets.  This team has no 1st line, the top 2 centers put up 4th line numbers offensively last year, the 3rd line center put up barely above average numbers in the KHL.  And yet I see posts about Gionta.  Incredible.

It was the first thing the three year old regime actually hit on so they had to do it again immediately.

You're also the first person to jump down throats when others complain about Zajac's numbers. Tell us- what are we allowed to complain about?

Your post has no content whatsoever and is just designed to provoke.  It's a terrible post.  But hey, if you're so upset by me, just put me on ignore.

 

It's just bizarre to me that Gionta is still some people's fetish.  At one point this team was good and the 4th line was an issue and Gionta was on it.  Now this team is probably bad and people still complain about him, it's like complaining about watered down drinks on the Titanic.  He'll be gone next year.

I was asking you a question. The content was my question. Why is that an issue?

Yes we know that Gionta isn't the reason we lost the game. That's not our point.

Yes the top 6 is still a mess, but it's a mess that will take many seasons to remedy. The bottom 6 is also a mess, but can already get better by taking Gionta out. There simply aren't better players on the devils right now that can take a top 6 spot than what was out tonight. There are however better options no matter how marginally they are that can replace Gionta as early as tomorrow's game.

I think people are just sick of him and would rather see just about any of the younger guys get a chance at his spot whereas it's a little more unrealistic to think one of the kids are going to take a spot in the higher lines.

Between the weather getting there and the team just being almost the same exact awfulness as last year this was really a rough night. I hope they have a bounce back game tomorrow against the caps.

Was going to post something similar re: Gionta. Fans are just sick of seeing him. That being said, not all of the deadwood gets cleared out right away. In the grand scheme, we won't have to endure him for much longer.

Sure, but generally you don't give kids a shot on the 4th line, unless they've been pros for a while.  When Elias comes back you might see Kalinin slide down there and Gionta move over to RW, although I doubt it given Boucher's start.
