So... Our expectations are the issue?

Nope not at all, it's broken.  So many things aren't good enough starting with the coaching staff and Fitz for allowing it to continue.  Getting Hamilton was great! But the talent is so razor thin outside of such a small handful they're just not good enough.  I don't think they sniff the playoffs again this year which will be how many times in the last ten? 

But patience I guess.  Drink up.

Ok, understood. I don't think it's a lack of talent though. I think it's too many of the same type of player.  Coaching is definitely an issue. There is way too much offensive talent to have a PP suck that bad. You don't have to waste time on that stupid drop pass to gain the blue line if you can dump the puck down low and win a battle.  They simply don't have that type of player. You can't win in the NHL if you can't win board battles. The Devils have the talent to exchange to get tougher and raise the level of compete. Fitz just hasn't gotten it done.

Just rewatching our sh!tty positioning.

Goal # 1 5v5
Devils on the Ice:
Defense: Smith/Subban
Wingers: Johnsson, Mercer, Hughes

3 Jets in the OZ Poink,Connor,Scheifele
5 Devils in DZ......

Pionk gains OZ left side outside the dots, Subban picks him up,
Kyle Connor Right side outside the dots. Right side covered by Smith-low Mercer High
Johnsson trailing the play, Hughes leaves Center slot and head towards Poink,
Scheifele enters center slot wide open 0 coverage, gets pass from Poink, right between Hughes and Subban. 
Takes it too the house. 

Center slot wide open: That doesn't happen if the Center is in the right position.

Goal # 3 really fvcking irked me, Jets a simple dump in, played by Bernier, Pass it to Sevs, had a hard time handling it great FC by Lowry on Sevs, and we turned over it behind the net. Vesalainen gets the pass from Stastny right out front. Mcleod just stayed along the wall, guessing we weren't going cough it up. Terrible mistakes. 2 out of the 3 first goal were preventable. fvcking joke

When Vesalainen got that puck, Severson and Seigenther were both behind the goal line. Just awful.

Beyond disappointed this wasn't a suspension, he needs a wakeup call since our coaching staff wont freaking do it outside of a stern word to the media

Didn’t somebody just get suspended for a similar play? I can’t believe 1) he’s still doing this stuff and 2) the league hasn’t stepped in.
