Yup, Blackwood is saving most of this team from finger pointing..  He better than wort cream..  

Too bad they took away that goal last night that as a unique one timer "snap" shot from pk. Havent seen that in a while  tip in or not

Also, can we talk about the start Zajac is off to? He only has the one goal so far, but his on-ice results so far have been fantastic to start the season if advanced stats are your thing, his line as a whole has been great as well.

Travis Zajac, 5v5:
63.64 CF%
65.12 FF%
68.25 xGF%

All while starting just 20% of his faceoffs in the offensive zone. If he sustains this for a full season I could see Trav getting some love from the analytics community for a Selke nomination.

Nope, Marc has only ever played for the Rangers and Detroit and Jordan only Pittsburgh and Carolina. 

Howe and his sons did though...

I saw them play together on one line in the first Hockey game I ever attended. This was in Houston in the 70s

And if they don't get their crap together after the 6 games...what then?  Are you benching one of both of them?  For who?  

I think this is a case of being patient and giving both of them the benefit of the doubt...though some are very quick to jump on him, Palms does have a solid track record of goal-scoring here (even though he's streaky), and Gusev looked better and better as last season wore on (30 points over his last 37 GP).  Keep in mind that one or both might be involved in deadline deals too...not going to do their value any good to prematurely bench them, and if Fitz decides that he's moving on from one or both, we'd obviously like to see him get as much as he possibly can.  For every player like Hughes who's come out of the gates flying, there's going to be other guys who without the benefit of a usual training camp/preseason are going to look off for a while...and in Palms' case, a guy he's very comfortable playing next to in Nico isn't in the lineup.  Given the general state of the team and the expectations this season (fast start be damned), I gotta give those two a lot more than six games to figure things out.

That being said, no arguments as to their performance...neither has looked good so far.  But still very early.

I mean more as a fan, I’ll really start bitching after 6...

As a coach you have to play them cause you have to trust they’ll break out of it. They have to turn it around or the choice will eventually really be out of Ruff’s hands and Palms, Goose or both will have to be swapped for something.

i'm really hoping that the Islanders put Schneider in net tomorrow to "give him something to play for" and that we fvcking light him up

 

Could happen. We do tend to see backups quite a bit.

Few things that, as devils fans, tend to see quite a bit.

- Opposing team's coaches playing goalies against their old team cause it's extra motivation

- Schneider giving up terrible terrible goals constantly

- Opposing teams playing their backups goalies against us

- Us making look backup goalies look like they were Hasek in his prime

 

So who knows what's happening tomorrow. WHO ?!?!

Met the great Gordie as well as Mark. Look at my pic............Gordie was at my son's soccer game several years ago. Couldn't have been any nicer

I am glad someone else noticed this as its been my one complaint about Ruff so far. It was obviously offside and should have been challenged. 

 

We are fortunate it didn't end up costing any points. 

Onside and wasn't even close as i mentioned up above.

I didn't notice it while watching and haven't gone back to double check. Anyone have a video clip? Always fun to analyze that stuff.

yeah close but onside

Again. If its THIS close. Just let them play for the love of god. They do not get any advantage at all by being a few inches further or not

Agree. No advantage gained should mean no call.

My only point of "not even close" is when I went to watch the play this morning........on the first replay it was obvious It was onsides.

It wouldn't have been close to a challenge, not even cloee

It would have been a waste of a challenge.
