Are there anymore sh!tty free agents Fitz can sign in the offseason? There must be some available castoffs for us, lol. Maybe he can sign Sami V for a third time, lol 

This really is the 80s Devils all over again.  That team was building strictly through the draft, and giving guys like Jan Ludvig a look for the hell of it.  Until further notice, looks like this franchise will be content to do the same.  Hopefully they hit on these picks.

Pittsburgh could probably lob a dump in at mid-ice and score. Oh wait! Lol 

We have been dumping at center ice all season.

My former cable provider got bought out by Optimum. Now the overflow Channel where they're supposed to show the Devils is not available to me.

I just ranted to them. Maybe I should have sent them a thank you letter instead

I thought Buffalo and Anaheim were worse than us, but I was wrong.  It actually isn't even close right now.  

Before the deadline they were definitely worse than us. Even after trading away Palms and Trav we were a better team. 

Without Pav, Bratt, Smith, Subban and not having our #1 goalie in net? They’re no doubt better than us. No doubt about it.

Why not call up goons for this game and at least play with some physicality??

Who?

I think we're down to watching Slapshot on game nights if that's what we want to see?

You think with Zacha, Bratt, Smith and Subban in the lineup tonight we're getting something different?  What, 2-0?  3-1?  I'm just not buying it.  They've been in the lineup for (most of) the past 43 games, and we've had much of the same as tonight.  Granted it's gotten worse as of late, but at last half of this season so far has been a complete sh!tshow in terms of missed assignments, no special teams, no one finishing, etc etc.  I'm sorry, but this team stinks from the top down, starting with every single person on the coaching staff.

I don't want him to play injured, but I just don't understand the idea that 9 games at the end of this season is completely meaningless - if you follow that logic and we don't play our guys in the final 9 games of the season, then why would playing them in the first 9 games of next season be any different?  9 games is 9 games, regardless of when you play them. Yeah it'd be great if we were making the playoffs this season, but we're not, so why not still try to get something out of this otherwise lost season and use the final dozen games to see what we've got for next year?  Otherwise, like I said earlier, you're just delaying something that you eventually need to do, and we'd be testing out our players next year and wasting 10% of the season when we could just do it now and get it over with - you know, be ahead of schedule for once.

My comment was really placed in that there is no point in playing injured at this point. If you see value in these 9 games, good for you. I see it as playing out the clock. The guys that were the subject of the post, Zacha and Bratt, have little to gain in these 9 games the team will likely not even be competitive in.

This dude from the Caps is AWFUL 

Looks like an organization that is light-years ahead of the Devils got the last laugh.  Because of course they did.

Oh I’m not sure it changes anything to this game, but I do think that if all those guys are in there we’re better than Anaheim or Buffalo. That’s what you said so I was responding to that.

I don't completely disagree, but Bratt is literally only 22, and Zacha is 24 - I think it's easily arguable that neither has established himself as a solid top 6 player, and frankly, that's what I'd like to see them strive for, even if it's only 9 games to end the season.  Not to mention the fact that in the final 9 games, they'd be playing with a slew of other guys who are also young, and new, and it's important for them to try and get acquainted with them and build chemistry.  I understand your point though, so it's all good.

Ehh. We’re barely better than they are. That’s why everyone makingbfun of them during their losing streak made no sense. We sh!t the bed just as hard.

Gotcha, I suppose you're probably right, but I guess I just wonder if Buffalo or Anaheim played the Rags or the Pens, are they getting completely embarrassed and steamrolled, the way we have/are?
