L G M F D!!!

If they lose this game, I’m giving them a pass…they’re gonna lose some road games at some point.  And as we know, bad teams occasionally beat good ones…Sharks have beaten the Rangers, Maple Leafs, the Stars, the Golden Knights…and the Wild twice.  Obviously I’d much rather see the Devils beat them, just not going to lose my sh!t if they don’t.  It’s already been a very successful road trip.

they should absolutely steamroll the sharks. i’ll give them a pass against the red hot Kracken who are on an 8(?) game win streak.

Sure on paper the Devils “should” but by that standard, so should every other above-average team that’s lost to the Sharks and other crappy teams.  Sh!t happens, and you’ve been watching  sports long enough to know that what seems like the “obvious” outcome for any given game doesn’t always come to pass.  Some days your team just doesn’t have it or is out of sync, or your goalie is off his game, or the ordinarily lousy team you’re facing either manages to put it together and exceed their talent level that particular day or their goalie manages to have a big game.  Aggravating in the moment, but it happens.

So is it going to be some travesty if the Devils (who have an absolutely insane road record and are already 3-0 on their latest trip) lose this game against the Sharks?  Of course I’ll happily take a win in any form…even if it’s some fugly 2-1 OT win where the Devils get outplayed but somehow escape with a couple of points.  But factoring everything in (record-setting road prowess, going 6-1-1 in their last 8 GP, etc) and not looking at this game in a vacuum, I won’t go nuts if they lose.

What Seattle is doing is mind boggling. I believe they’re the first nhl/nba team in history to sweep a 7 gm road trip. Completely wild. 

Funny because Francis took so much heat for his expansion draft but look at them one year later.

LGD tomorrow. Must get two points in games like these.

The Kraken are on quite a roll. They shut out Bruins on the toad this past week. My oldest son lives in Seattle and has been to a few games and has tix for the Devils game.

Why the fvck are we starting a GDT talking about whether or not we should be upset if they lose??

That’s fair.  More just me saying some fans are occasionally too quick to jump on this team.  But yeah, let’s go with “Just beat these guys!”

I don’t know, because I’m only happy when the Devils win.

So then we should talk about them winning. Talking about how it’s ok to lose is a loser mentality, IMO. Say that after we lose.

I agree with that.  That’s why I always expect a win.  Even when they suck.
