eh...remember in the beginning of the season? totally random. larsson sits for 5, tallinder sits, and now its fayne's turn again? i'd love to see him get in, at either harrold's or zid's expense

We missed you Marty and Lotki. Wishing you a quick return Zub.

Also, I haven't read anything on Poni, he seemed to have left during last game? I saw him looking slow to get onto the bench.

It could be worse... it could be Cory Murphy in for Fayne.

THIS x1000. But I think it had a lot to do with the locker room too. If you remember nearly every postgame the guys were 100% behind Moose and refused to blame Moose. Even when it was clearly Moose's fault, they refused to blame Moose. Finally, even when Moose blamed himself the guys refused to blame Moose.

So maybe Pete thought that since everyone was rallying around Moose his best chance to maximize their play was with Moose on the ice (even if he was terrible). He probably thought that Kinkaid/Frazee weren't that much of an upgrade, so why not just roll the dice with Moose?

I can see that logic. I still wish the kid got a shot.

It's not random, Fayne's been BAD since the first time he got benched. The merry go round has ruined him this year.

This is a must win for the team. Anything less (Even an OT loss) will ensure that we need to have an end of season winning streak like 05/06 to get into the playoffs. Not sure what to expect of Marty but he could very well be rusty like that Toronto game last year.

Hopefully they play better than the last game there. The last time we played in Carolina less than 2 weeks ago was the worst defensive game of the season. It looked like a Flyers/Penguins game only one team wasn't having the stupid breakdowns.

You and are me are opposite on the first sentence and in total agreement on the second.

I was indifferent to Greene at first, but now he just annoys me to no end because of the powerplay. He is Rafalski version 2.0 who is incapable of getting a shot through on net and has no shot power in order to even attempt a slap shot. You might as well just pass it to the other team like you should have done if you ever made a pass to Colin White in the offensive zone.

ugh i really want larsson to get a shot on the PP. i would certainly hope that is the plan for the future at some point (hopefully soon). not likely this season i would assume. but id hope next season at the latest. time for him to take that next step.

I've been quiet long enough on this; It's time for Kovalchuk to start scoring some even strength goals. 4 5-on-5 goals through 30 games is ****ing ridiculous.

The Devils have completely changed the way the man plays hockey. It's not necessarily a bad thing. But he's become a decent two-way player and a fantastic distributor of the puck. His problem? He doesn't play with enough talent to have that part of his game be as effective as it should be. That improved with Lokti. He needs a skilled line mate that can finish.

I think the days of Kovy scoring massive amounts 5 on 5 are over. He's not that player anymore. You routinely see him gain the zone with fantastic dekes and all of a sudden he passes up an open shot in favor of a shot from the point.

The Devils have made Kovy a "team guy." Those guys don't score 25 goals a year 5 on 5.

Come on now...that is just crazy talk. He is like 5th on the team in even strength goals... and if you were to factor that by TOI he is probably 7th or 8th
