Game #3| Jan. 22, 2013|Flyers at Devils |7:30 p.m. ET pt II

Carry on the customary wailing and gnashing of teeth. For those who missed the game, here's a summary:




Will be opened when needed.

Can't say I didn't expect it. They owned us in the playoffs last year, and it seems to be something that will continue this year.

They said it time and time again in the broadcast, the devils system just suffocates us.

Better positioning for rebounds maybe? How many bounced out with all the forwards on the same side of the net?

Brutal game but really what showed was a true lack of chemistry. Lavi s line combos have been brutal IMO... Feds has no business being on the second line and this roll 4 equal lines thing is clearly not working.

I'm sure that a carrot attached to a stick via string attached to their helmet would give them more get-up.

If we finish last again, and some other scrub team gets our first overall pick, I will have blood!

6.25% of the season is over and we have zero points. Basically the same thing as starting an 82 game season 0-5.

In all objectivity, this would be a perfect year to tank.
- Fewer games to suck
- Great top-end talent for the picking

I know, I know. I'm posting gloom-and-doom out of frustration after only 3 games. Mind you, I was boycotting the first 2 anyway, so this was the first I watched. Yay me! But this team has played like much less than the sum of their parts. They look like they haven't met each other before the game, and were out of sync in all three zones.

Lavi better figure something out b/c his team looks extremely confused out there and he bears responsibility regardless. Tocchet said there doesn't seem to be any commitment to defense but I guess so when Lavi said he was going to attack attack attack. Ironically, the attack looks like the Polish cavalry going up against Panzers...

Bryz looks good.
The goals will come.
Jagr and matt Carle weren't the reason we scored so many against the Pens last year. (ok, maybe that was Flower)

I'm going to start staring at Lavi angrily and thoughtfully if we suck again in New York. This team should be gelling and improving with games played, not getting worse. 3 games played with basically no camp and no preseason I can forgive, but there is some alarm. If the trend doesn't begin improving by game 5, I'm going Defcon 5.

I anticipate this strategy would only result in a rash of carrot-related eye injuries with this group. And a couple of own-goals off the sticks.

Bryz is the least of our worries wight now.

THAT should tell you how much of a dumpster fire this team is currently.

Lavy needs to fix it, or off he goes.

This team has too much talent to be playing this badly. JVR, Jagr, and Carle didnt change us from a playoff team to the worst team in the east. Lavy has to figure this out, or he should get out.

I thought the two right handed D (Gervais and Schenn) were going to foil the Devils forecheck....
