Kind of confused what you're suggesting here instead of the pairs they had, which were, as I'm sure you know, a result of Hynes not having Greene and not wanting to play Mueller - who, should probably play after seeing Carrick and Tennyson today. Are you questioning the construction of the roster from the outset of the season?

I'm questioning sitting Mueller, bringing up Tennyson, and playing him.  R-R pairs don't typically work.  This is a known thing - the analytics department of the Devils certainly knows it.

The roster construction, I understand somewhat just because they carved out a spot for Smith and he couldn't take it.

This is my third game of the season today...taking a half-day off work to take my daughter, who is off school today.  REALLY hoping the third time's the charm, because goddamn is this season off to a

Starting a n w job today so I won’t be able to watch it live. Hopefully it’ll be worth watching later or at least the highlights. LGD!

Two questions about today - I don't understand going with 5 RHD.  I get that Mueller sucks.  I get that Smith couldn't play here and I get that Greene is hurt and I get that the organization real

Someone explain to me when Palms officially became an "all situations" type player?  He looks awful out there in almost all circumstances except when he's shooting the puck.

I can't believe he led the team in TOI today.  Zajac, with Nico out, I get it.

I'm sure he knows that - his press conferences lately hint at someone who is working closely with the analytics department - and I'm sure the pairs today were the result of "Let's just try something else and hope for the atypical." But after today, if Mueller doesn't draw back in next game, I'd be very surprised.

And Wayne Simmonds with more time than Bratt? Ok.

My friend asked if Jacques Lemaire is still available.  I then asked (don’t attack me and some may agree) if Pat Burns is available.  Def a better option than that pos behind the bench.

Edit: Removing the joke gif, I shouldn't make light of this.

Just FYI - Pat passed away a few years ago. (Double edit: 2010, Jesus time flies).

So much anger.

Time for Hynes and his permanent dumb-yet-angry-but-befuddled expression to go.  Maybe it’s simply a case of a guy who got so used to losing (and was never really taken to task for it, due to various circumstances) that he doesn’t really know how to stop, no matter the amount of talent he has to work with.  

Who knows?  I’m just done with status quo.

I know, that’s why I said don’t attack me but I’m just sick of this sh!t

Burns was a great coach and trust me I’m not making light of him.  Hynes is an f’ing joke.

I was told in every game the opposing team has scored within 30 seconds of the end of the 2nd, makes for all the momentum in the third.  Or maybe in every comeback game.

I don’t think it takes a Palmieri hater to wish his complacent ass was in a suit and the press box for a few games. 

Problem is every time Palms dares to slump or not play well, right away with you he’s a complacent check-casher who doesn’t give a fvck.  

That being said, he’s playing badly enough that if he ever got healthy-scratched for a game soon, I could understand why.

Darryl Sutter, IMO

Real hard ass, from what I've heard on Spittin Chiclets.

Might be just what the doctor ordered for these soft weaklings on the current roster.

Cangelosi sounds pissed in the post game.  About time.

Didn’t watch it, what did he say that made him sound mad?  Never heard him sound mad which pisses me off, he’s too much of a professional, I’d be fired within the first 2 mins of being an announcer.

I'm not sure how viable he'd be as a choice anyway after the whole Brent debacle.  

Right now the only realistic non-hateable options are Guy Boucher and Shero going behind the bench himself.  Promoting from within would be laughable.  Having a Stevens or Elias coach, while it would be initially popular would be cringeworthy in the sense that you can't really fire either guy if things go sideways or if you do it'll be a mess not worth getting into.

Could be Hynes just does better when he has absolutely little to no expectations and/or pressure.

That's why he is Coach Loser to me.

Scoring literally no powerplay goals, having a PK below 50% and repeatedly blowing leads is not an issue of having R-R defensive pairs.  It's the coaches, and if the analytics people have trouble figuring that out, they should go back to getting wedgies at gym class.
