GDT: Devils @ Sabres 1/8/19, 7pm

Recommended Posts

These two are funny, as they keep saying that Hall and Johansson would have made this a different game. No, KK not sucking a bag of d!cks might’ve helped though.

46 seconds left in the power play, and likely the tilt?? Really Cangi???

Goodnight all. I’d like to say it was fun, but it was more like getting face slapped with a walrus d!ck.

Would they just let us play short handed the whole game since apparently we’re so good at that?

No my posts got combined. The fight was Noesen. It wasn’t even a fight, it was basically guys falling on top of each other. It was closer to gay porn than a fight. 

Lol oh ok I was gonna say...

My biggest gripe is with the coaching. There have been times in the past when I've felt that the Devils best players weren't being their best players or that the effort wasn't there. To be honest, it seemed to be that the team had no quit tonight and gave it everything they had for 60 minutes. They're just truly bad and while yes, the roster isn't impressive, that has to have a lot to do with coaching.

Dano is on a roll tonight. Maybe he's back off the wagon. Or on the wagon....you know the only saying... Fool me once shame on me fool me twice shame on...them.... 

You can’t watch this team sober night in and night out. If Dano’s drinking, I don’t blame him lol.

Agree. When the team sucks for a long time you kinda get used to it and all you can do is to remain patient. This year is much worse because last year we saw the light at the end of the tunnel. This nosedive is killing any hope we have had.

Lol at brown cheese

How did Zacha do tonight? Any improvement from his last two awful games? I only caught the last minute of the game where he fell on his ass trying to enter the zone on the PP 🤣

No major blunders by Zacha tonight. He just contributed to the one giant team wide blunder called “tonight’s game”.

Well normally I'd say it's time for a pic of Erika in the black leather pants but after guys bitched the last time I guess I'll pass.

Talking about the team after a game like tonight's isn't even fun.  No one was particularly good; the goaltending sucked, the defense sucked.  I'd blame it on the schedule except for the fact that the Devils have 6 or 7 losses like this on their ledger already.

Pulling up the site this morning and reading the rest of this thread after I turned off the game yesterday, I have the same feeling.  I'm just downright disappointed.  Yesterday's game was so bleh.  As you said, no one really did anything, we scored AGAIN so early (I'm going to stop pointing that out because evidently it means NOTHING) and squandered yet another lead, and essentially did nothing for 59 minutes.  The PP continues to be so ineffective, it's not even worth having the man advantage, because it's not an advantage at all.  I feel like the guys are out there for 2 minutes just killing time until it's back to even strength and they start playing a 5 on 5 game that they're used to, but in the case of last night, it was so bad that we actually gave up a shortie too.  Kinkaid was pretty bad last night and the defense was basically worse.

All in all it was an awful game and sad to see us head the wrong direction from being .500.  Tough test tomorrow even though we're back at home.  I don't expect to win.  If anything, a 6-0 loss wouldn't surprise me.  With Hynes getting an extension last week he's obviously not going anywhere....but if we get blown out tomorrow, someone should be fired.

Like Tri alluded to...last night's game is one that I feel like I've seen so many times this year.  Non-competitive and prone to just falling completely apart when it starts to go south.  Too many nights where they look like they don't even belong in the NHL...after games like last night's, I wonder how the hell they've managed to win 16 games.  They've now given up 4+ goals in 20 games...out of 42!  (They gave up 4+ in 26 games for all of last season.)  They've given up a total of 103 goals in those 20 games...though they've managed to go 1-1-4 in games where they give up exactly four goals, they're 0-13-1 when giving up 5+.  They're on pace to give up 4+ 39 times this year.  That's just fvcking brutal. 

I thought KK had a chance to become another Terreri-type (passable #1), but I take it back.  On some levels I give him a lot of credit...he was an undrafted player and he's done a lot more up here than a hell of a lot of Devils' drafted goalies.  The Devils don't make the playoffs without his stepping up last year...he definitely did get some good fortune on that run, but he also made his share of big and important saves.  Overall since staying up, he's been a serviceable backup and as we've been over is now being asked to do way too much (Plan A NEVER called for him to appear in 32 out of the Devils first 42 games of the season...think about that for a moment, about how much had to go wrong for this to happen).  This being said, I think Shero should let him walk next season, and bring in someone else.  Feels like it's time for a change. 

One thing we really should not forget is that Hall is not playing...this is really getting overlooked by all of us (me included)...I know they've sucked with him IN the lineup too, but not having him is just a fvcking killer.

Nights like last night.. man.. tank, tank, tank.

Good news is we really don't have to try to tank - just play Cory and KK the rest of the way and we'll fall naturally.

For those that follow the draft prospects closely, how big is the drop off after Hughes, Kakko, and the Russian kid? If we have to suffer this much for another half a season I sure as hell hope we end up in the top 3...

Curious about this board too - what do you guys think?

This might be the most fascinating aspect of sports fan psychology to me. I’ve been a cold, calculating, embrace the tank fan since I was 13 years old. But I absolutely get the other side of it. (And wish there were no drafts to tank for).

OK, so @domluszczyszyn currently projects the #NJDevils to finish 10th from the bottom with ~82ish points. Getting to 82 pts would mean they play better/get more wins in the next 40 games than they have in the past 38. If you’re an NJD fan are you ... 

Happy w/improved 2nd half
Mad about draft position
Both
Neither
