Damn, I didn't realize Kovalchuk was going to miss time. This really bites

I don't believe that.


I mean Adam Oates was our PP Coach and now Barr took over for him.


That's the first time I've ever heard of Matt Shaw...

Matt Shaw is the power play guy. he was hired specifically for that. Barr works on the PK.

@TGfireandice: No supplemental discipline for Colby Robak for crosscheck hit on Tim Sestito. Distance from boards significantly farther than Kaleta hit.

if youre looking for a player to replace kovy, youre going to be disappointed.

Our season and possible playoffs hinge on his shoulder right now. If hes out a week or two, alright we can try to survive. If hes out for the season, we have no chance at a cup.

Thankfully we only have one game between now and friday. He will have some time to heal.

Matt Shaw lands as assistant with New Jersey, where he’ll be handling power play for Devils

Next year, you draft only Penguins/Rangers/Flyers. No questions asked.

that said....... an orleans hornet? or a pelican? or just a guy that made it big in Charlotte?

He was with the Hornets when they were still in Charlotte. None of this Bobcats/Pelicans non-sense that we have with the current two franchises.

I too enjoyed Muggsy. Although, a large part of that is also because of Space Jam

That 5 minute PP without Kovy on it was one of the worst things I've seen all season.

Wait! So in the NHL, two guys coach/work on the PP and PK separately?


Why? Can't one guy coach all of Special Teams?




Oh and Shanny can kiss my ass. I can't believe he didn't Shannaban Colby's ass into next Tuesday!

They are two different entities with different personnel. And I believe the assistant coaches have more responsibility than 'just' coaching the PP and PK though that's their main gameday function.

Hopefully the Devils manage to hang onto a playoff spot. A fresh Kovy and Zubrus in the playoffs would be great.

And yes I DO blame the PP coach. Who's the one telling them to play musical chairs for 20 seconds every time they set up? I don't blame him for that 5 minute PP of doom though. No time to adjust, but let's see if he does now with Kovy out.

Matt Shaw was the man behind one of the best PP coaches of the past 5 years. Adam Oates ran one of the best power plays in the league in Tampa. I don't think coaching has anything to do with it anymore.

Can't really blame the coach when the same issues that have haunted the Devils PP for years have been the same under multiple PP coaches.

The roster isn't even too similar to when these PP woes began... must be a curse in the uniform or something.

The Devils haven't finished in the top 10 on the PP since the 2001-02 season.

I remember the 09-10 PP better than it really was, I guess - yeah, it's definitely not on the coaching

Well, they did finish 11th on the PP that year, so it was pretty solid.

Funny thing is they went from a top 10 PP in 2001-02 to dead last in 2002-03. And we all remember how both of those seasons ended.
