And like 3-4 more that should have been goals that he stopped. 

I said he made some big saves. Still wasn’t his best game, imo.

I know this is a GDT thread so hyperbole is often excused following a tough loss, but the kid is 19. That’s a 1 followed by a 9. He’s battled through Covid and is playing 57 games a week all the while

Saying he’s not creating is false. He’s not finishing. There’s a big difference. 

It was basically 2 minutes for history of douchebaggery.

Crazy game.

Looking forward to the day when the Devils have assistant coaches who actually assist.

Recchi really needs to go. The PP is very bit as bad as the PK was earlier this season.

No, it wasn’t. But I can’t look at this game and say he cost us the win. That would be like if I were arguing it was Hughes’ fault for not scoring. If he scored only one, we win in regulation.

I’m fine with partially blaming Hughes. He’s part of the atrocious PP.

Mac made some huge saves tonight but I’m still putting part of this on him. Frustrating loss. 

I disagree. Because of Blackwood 's saves the Devils got a point and we're in it to the SO. Blackwood was under tremendous pressure by veteran scorers and yet kept the Devils in the game.

At least you’re consistent, then lol.

That’s fine, but the first goal off his glove is a save a #1 NHL goalie has to make 10 X out of 10. Is what it is though. We still give that Boston team fits, so it took quite and effort for them to come back and beat us.

Would be nice if Hughes didn't always seem to play with at least one guy that doesn't really contribute.

Boston was going to score at ES at some point.  Never would’ve imagined they’d only manage two SO wins in six games against the Devils.

I literally didn’t even realize Kuokkanen was in the lineup tonight...

Literally the least physical team in the East for the better part of the last decade

Hopefully Bahl and Okhotyuk will help with that. Both guys are plenty physical. At least at the lower levels.

He's been pretty consistent for the last month, but he indeed had a quiet game. With that being said II'm real happy with his play this season.

Just describe the last 10 years of Devils hockey. 

Ok, hot yuck. Then just lose the C.

Great tip, but thanks for ruining his name for me for the next decade LOL

Those two guys will hopefully bash people’s faces in when they get up here. We need more ‘fvck you’.

Invisible? No. Effective? Also no. I don’t know what else he needs to do at this point. 

I think the simple (not simple?) answer is just - continue to grow, mature.

He's such a good transitional player. Needs to knock off the junior-level bullsh!t.

exhausted of all the advanced stats telling me jack hughes is anything other than a massive disappointment again this season after a red hot start. 

what are the fewest points from a 1oa forward through 2 seasons? pretty sure “biggest bust ever yakupov” had more, in fewer GP too. 

hughes isn’t a bust but he sure doesn’t look like a boom.

*sigh*

ok here we go round 379. He’s 19. Look around the league at all his peers. Any of them lighting it up? Dahlin? I was told on this very board he’s the next Lidstrom. He’s been horrendous all season. Like actively bad. 

The Rags have a couple studs that went 1 and 2 though so that sucks. Those two have a combined 17 points this season, and Laf (I was also told on this very board he’s on another level compared to Jack) is having an even worse rookie season than Hughes did last year. Pretty sure Wayne Simmonds isn’t on that team either.

How about Stutzle? He’s got to be destroying the weak competition in the North on a nightly basis right? *checks notes* nope 19 points in 33 GP. Less goals than Jack. 

I could certainly go on, and if I’m forgetting any other 19 year olds that are making Jack look bad by all means let me know. But the fact is none of the other highly touted young kids across the league are doing any better from a production standpoint. I’m frustrated with Jack’s slump, too. I’m sure we all are. But he looks like a good player most nights. And he clearly took a step forward from last year (that’s what we all wanted to see right?).

To me the biggest difference from his hot start to now is he looks like he might of lost a lot of that weight he put on in the offseason. Which makes sense considering he contracted covid and has probably seen very little of the weight room with this insane schedule. I mean, they barely have time for full practices right now. It’s fvcked.

Obviously we all want to see more points. But if you watch this kid play and don’t think he’s going to be a very, very good player in a few years when he’s 22-23 I just don’t know what to tell you.

It's going to happen even sooner than that, in my opinion. I'm not worried about him. He has great skills and wants to be a great NHL player. You see it all the time, highly touted players taking off in their third or fourth season. Not everyone can be Sidney Crosby or Alexander Ovechkin. Those kinds of phenoms don't happen very often.

Watching the highlights now and I’ve got to say, Bratt’s effort is disappointing at times. On the game tying goal, he just doesn’t sell out to block the pass from getting off. 
 

Goal 1 I can forgive Blackwood on for a) playing lockdown lately and b) puck being a knuckled, end over end. 
 

Need Nico back to bump Zacha to wing again. 
 

McLeod is a very interesting development. Without a clearly defined role on the 4th line, he’s shown flashes of high skill (Philly, toe drag attempt last game, sleek back hand move tonight). He very well could be found money at this point. Playing with confidence now. 
 

No PP highlights. Not good
