We typically bounce back after games like Saturday. I don't see it. 3-1 Devils with an EN goal being the third. I expect good goaltending and a tight defensive game, but I expect to lose.

I can't help the pessimism right now. This team has shown very little for about 30 straight games....

Agreed, I'll be damn surprised if we're not golfing come first week of April

I was going to make a GDT, but:

1.) My OS is fried and I'm probably going to have to replace my HDD.
2.) The effort put forth Saturday wasn't deserving of a follow up GDT.

Is Dumont playing? I have in my fantasy team, and for some reason 500 people decided to drop him. I didn't think he got hurt

I started to comment that moving JP off of one of the top two lines is dumb b/c we will have to pull ourselves out of this slump with a rationale top 2 lines that need to include JP. Then I realized that nobody, including Trotz and Poile, and certainly not I, have the foggiest clue how to pull this team out of this funk.

I thought the four game stretch of Chi-Chi-Tor-Mon was a solid set for us and it felt like the plane had pulled out of the nosedive. So is the Atlanta game just a throw out, unrelated stinker or does it show the plane is still headed nose first into a parking lot?

I'm a contrarian, so I'll say it was an unrelated stinker. Otherwise, you might as well use your remaining tickets as a fire-starter/ table-leveler/ snot-catcher/ wall-covering.

Preds 3 Devils 1. Goals by Santorelli, Jones and Ortmeyer.... Hornqvist with the primary assist on each.

As an aside, if I were Scot Nichols agent I would be demanding a 5 year $5M per contract based on his value to the team.

hel*, i have been calling for him to be scratched for a week now.

I know, I know, he is one of the few skilled guys that we have on our team.

But did you SEE him pass the puck on a 2 on 0 to the trailer who was NOT open against Atlanta?

He is just not there mentally. When Fiddler makes smarter offensive decisions than you do, you deserve to be on the 3rd line, or scratched, IMO.

Zanon once again gets burned on a 5 on 3....over commits to a block shot, slides way away from the net, Shannahan easily walks around him and puts it on net for the goal. Its a shame because we were playing a heck of a good PK there.

I was really hoping to turn out wrong there.....Ah well, I can't say we earned it, but it is tough losing by a goal (barring the EN) when one of them was on a 5 on 3.

A positive - we scored on the powerplay!!!!!

Fiddler and Sullivan were the only forwards worth a damn tonight.

I wish that Arnott, Erat and Dumont could be benched. They're not even trying. And to hear Trotz talk about what a great effort it was tonight....

If you think that is bad you should see the quotes from Jason Arnott in Brandon Felder's blog over on hockeybuzz. Simply unbelievable. It's like the team is trying to convince theirselves they are trying. Us fans aren't stupid we know what a hungry team looks like. Last year's team played like they had fire underneath their butts in the clutch times. They are lying to theirselves if they think they are playing with the heart or effort they showed last year.

Call me crazy, but I thought Arnott played pretty well for you guys last night.

Anyway, I just came to post this quote from Arnott about Weber that one of our beat writers had - he compares him to Scott Stevens, so some pretty high praise.

Quote:
Arnott said he sees a lot of Stevens in Predators defenseman Shea Weber, including that deep stare that Stevens often used to intimidate teammates and opponents.

"Once Scotty got that evil eye going, look out," Arnott said. "I see that a lot in Webbie. He's very quiet and reserved and he speaks up when he needs to and he plays hard every night and he can do it all on the ice like Scotty did. I see a lot of qualities in Webbie that Scotty had."
Good luck for the rest of the season.
