Yes, but you can take that two ways. One would be that they are playing at such a high level you do not want to face them, or two that no matter what team it is it becomes impossible to play at that level for an extended period of time.

The Flyers match up well against the Debbies, so it would be no worse than playing against the Canes, except with facing Mary Brodeur. Going into the playoffs they are either good enough to beat any team, or not good enough. At their best there is no one out of the EC who can take them down, but if they play like they have since December, it could very well be an early exit.

since december? january was probably the best month of the season for this team. they went 10-2 and really only had one uber-****** game on the 22nd against the devils. they came back the next day and dominated the blackhawks.

Yes, since December there has been inconsistent play, and the team not playing at the level expected for a full 60 mins. Let downs are going to occur, but there has been a long period of time where they have been coasting. Go back to the December-Jan break after the boys went to Costa Rica and the All-Star break.

There were what I would refer to symptoms of a breakdown, and in Feb it certainly came to fruition. Even last night, outshoot them 17-1, then lose the next two 11-5 and 13-5. Losing leads has been a problem. There have been issues.

Using this website, I am not worried about their calculated 0.8% chance of making the playoffs. http://www.sportsclubstats.com/NHL/E...ic/Devils.html

Devs need to get 26 of a possible 32 pts in order to get to 90 pts. Last year was the only year since the lockout that 90 pts got you into the playoffs in the East.

So, it remains an extreme long shot that they make the playoffs. Losing to a team like the Sens when they got a lot of tough games on their schedule is knocking nails into the coffin.

Buffalo (8th) and Carolina (9th) have 72 and 71 pts with the same 16 games left, so they need 18/19 of 32 points respectively to reach 90. You have to think one of them will surpass that and nail down 8th.

Assuming the Rangers and Montreal don't slide out of contention, I just don't think the Devils have enough margin for error.
