Like Kershaw said, we completely dominated some games and still came out with losses. The Leafs game is the best example. We outshot Toronto like 28-6 through 2 periods and were tied 0-0. It wasn't just a case of shooting every chance we got and shooting terrible shots, although that did happen at times, but bome of these were tic-tac-toe bang-bang plays that led to highway robbery saves and posts. It was a frustrating season because the Devils dominated almost every game they played and still lost.

If the Devils can sign or at least replace Clarkson, and Schnieder plays 40-45 games next year, I do believe the Devils will be better than the Rangers. Not trying to start a fight on that, just an opinion. I think the Rangers and Devils are both 5-8 seeds.
Disagree on opinion but Schniedy was a good trade. Devs have some glaring deficiencies on D but if Clarky resigns/replaced and a young 3rd line steps up (Lokomotiv, tedenby, josefsen) then you should be ok, objectively.
