GDT: Devils at Boston 7:00 PM

Recommended Posts

I mean.. they would have been sloppy wins but we lost 2 games in SO... which comes down to individual efforts.... then we'd be 2-2-0. Not the worst thing in the world so let's all calm down at LEAST until we hit 10 games maybe?

It’s the blown leads though. If we fought back to come from behind and tie, but then came up short in the SO it would be a completely different feeling right now.

What can Rooney possibly bring to centering a line with talent like Gusev and Bratt? Also, Simmonds, hasn't been a good possession player yet. Why not try another player on Hughes' right wing? Zacha/Hughes/Coleman would be worth trying. 

He’s a warm body.  Is that contributing?  Other than that I’ve got nothing.

I think a better reply would be to argue that Hynes’s use of Boqvist undermines that argument and reinforces the notion that Haynes is not in firm control of the best use of this team’s talent.  I had hoped that the first game scratch of Boqvist would be indicative of Haynes having a plan for him.  I don’t see why you’d need, or want, to laugh at that idea.  Or do you enjoy having our team coached by an imbecile why wasting prime years of talented hockey players losing profoundly frustrating games?  I know I don’t.... I went through enough of that in the ‘80s.  So while I can’t defend Hynes’s use of Boqvist by sitting him tonight and I agree that this is damning of the coaching staff, I don’t understand your apparent joy at being right that the Devils are in bad hands.  I prefer to hope that we are in good hands and I’ll be happy if I’m right; being right about my favorite teams sucking ass just isn’t enjoyable.

I'm not laughing at the idea of him sitting or not, but those who thought that was the actual reasoning behind Hynes sitting Boqvist.  It's not and never really was.  It's because Hynes has no clue what he is doing except giving ice time to his favorites who show to him that ever-vague "high level of compete" nonsense he keeps spewing.

It is still true that Boqvist is being limited in order to pace him - but he's not above anyone else on the depth chart - that is true, and I too wish we would see more of him already. That said, Hynes basically said today he's going to play Boqvist sometime next week. The problem is he isn't even giving Bratt a few extra o-zone shifts yet - so Boqvist is really going to have trouble getting an opportunity even if he does play. Hynes is opting to under-utilize skilled playmaking, weak defensive players right now and such has resulted in us looking more structured out there and competing, so it's hard to argue with. This is why Boqvist isn't in, we have an abundance of skill at forward but we are trying to protect Hughes and Gusev right now. As Hughes, and hopefully Gusev, get better, Hynes will be able to move them around the lineup more and that will open up room for Boqvist to slot in.

I have no idea why, but I feel we are going to get the win tonight. 

probably cause we historically play well against good teams and lose when we figured we should win

I had a dream that we won 5-3 so of course we're going to get blown out

That's the spirit! Don't get your hopes up and then they can't be smashed to a million little pieces.

Big brain. lol

I know things look okay right now, but this game has the feel of one in which we will need our goaltender to be perfect.

Well up until now every lose puck or broken plays seemed to end up on a Bruins stick already skating full speed for wtv reasons. It's going to be one of those game

Palms passing has been really bad this year and this game, he already fvcked a few passes... right there he had the puck on his stick, nobody between him and Severson and he made some sort of saucer pass that Sevs had to control. Why not keep the puck on the ice?

We’re on pace to have about 2-3 shots for the period...

I think you meant to say they’re on pace for 2-3 wins for the year.  That’s what I’m here for though, to find those small mistakes.
