Yes.  They have a lot of talent, and they're one of the best possession teams in the league.  What's killed them this year is unsustainable bad goaltending.

So your blind optimism doesn't just apply to the Devils, then. Good to know.

Their PK is near the bottom. They stay in games by not taking penalties, because they realty suck at killing them. You can't pin the number of goals they have given up entirely on the goal-tending.

I guess not taking a penalties should be commended, but regardless, not sure I would say they are really good. But I guess that its all relative.

Motherfvcker, you're blind. I was at the game. They were getting booed off the ice in the second period. They got 1 'eh' goal and two VERY lucky goals, and should have lost that game. 

I don't think we deserved to lose cause the Canes didn't do much either, this was a perfect example of a game that deserved to end in a tie.

Watching on TV I thought the Devils clearly outplayed the Canes in the 1st period and barely edged them in the 2nd and 3rd.  However, I can see how being there it might have looked different.

I am beginning to see how much Farnham is better than Tootoo.  This beyond just +/-.  Farnham actually has some hockey sense in him.  Tootoo just doesn't do anything out there along with Tlusty and others.  Kennedy didn't do anything much and I still wonder how is in over other players.  I think Josefson has more value than him. Matteau had an alright game and Merrill had one of his better games of the year.

I thought both goals against KK were weak, especially that second one.  No way should that one go in.  Ward didn't play much better either but I thought he performed better than KK even though he ended up with the loss.

Canes goals were lucky too.

Fans in attendance are rarely ever in a rational frame of mind.  And lol @ luck.  I guarantee if the Devils were on the losing end, you would be pissed just because they gave up "unlucky" goals.  

If we play well and lose, the only thing that matters is we lost which means you're pissed.

If we play poorly and win, the only thing that matters is we played poorly, which means you're pissed.

You're pissed no matter what.  Objectively, the Devils deserved to win because they outplayed Carolina.  Kept Carolina to the outside all game, and we generated more quality scoring chances.

Listen, man, I like you. It's nice to have someone with blind and unwavering devotion to the Devils. But when you say stupid things, I'm going to tell you they're stupid things.

you said stupid things.

also, I'm certain you have me confused with someone else. I err on the side of homerism in my posts -- I'm a pretty optimistic and happy guy about the Devils. I'd love for you to surf through my post history and find examples of me being pissed when they win. 

The Devils did not outplay Carolina last night. Isn't that what the Mike Brown post-game stat report that you seem to have a vague interperatatuon of tells you?

The Canes announcers called it a devasting loss. Surprised to hear that at this point in the season, but they were really hoping the Canes would win 3 in a row.

 

Don't forget, they also don't like the Devils all that much. A lot of Canes fans (and probably the announcers) regard us as their only rival. So to them, losing to that garbage goal in the last 3 minutes is probably like us losing to the Isles or Flyers to that garbage goal in the last 3 minutes.
