As someone who has been here as a mod for too long I can tell you that you're so wrong, not sure what GDT's you have been in.

I concur.

I can't remember another game that got me this angry.

the lack of urgency is quite alarming, considering most of these guys were in must win situations in the playoffs last spring. they are really lacking. it's whatever at this point.

still can't believe deboer had gionta out there in the last few secs.

People need to get a ****ing grip. We're not going to with the Cup every season. And even in the seasons that are successful, things are not always going to go well. Possibly for long stretches. It's called reality.

Its the culture that Lou has brought to the Devils since he arrived in 1987.

How is it unrealistic to expect us to win against bad teams? They've lost like ten games against non-playoff teams this year. I'm tired of saying sooner or later it's going to come back to bite them, but...

Missing Parise hurts because most of the time the shootouts do not go past the 1st 3shooters. Last year we had:

Kovy
Parise
Elias

now its

Zajac
Elias
Clarkson (ugh)

good is not good enough when better is expected. This is all of Lou's doing.

We are bad people. Or the fact that we have had success over a short period of time means we expect more. Who Knows but if you don't read it it won't affect you. Simple

This has little to do with our goaltender's inability to stop pucks this year.

harrold moves the puck very well its one of his strong traits, if puck movement is a concern then fayne out harrold in and tallinder is stronger than volch in that department

but the puck movement wasn't really a problem tonight...they got out of position and you sometimes just have to give credit to one of the best players in the nhl ...stamkos the guy does lead the nhl in goals ...im not overly worried about this team...just need to make the playoffs and they can make noise....assuming they are healthy...i still think they need a goal scorer up front or someone with more skill...they may be able to get away with it... at this point bernier and carter need to be put with a legit top nine center...and gio can center a 4th line..

poni/lokti/dag
carter/henrique/bernier
clark/zajac/elias
sestito/gio/koustoplus

those are my 4 lines tomorrow

Such a frustrating loss. I wanted to throw my remote at my tv. Why are we so awful in the shootout? Marty can't stop a thing in it.

This game was the perfect storm for an overspill of anger and venting.

Most posters here are generally composed following games, but blowing two 2 goal leads, giving up the tying goal in the last minute, losing in the SO with nary an effort, the porous defense, the breakdowns, and how tight the playoff picture is, I can understand the anger.

That's not the only reason. Parise couldn't score at all in the shootout the last two-thirds of the season last year. Our great shootout goalies have forgotten how to stop shots and Kovy's magic stick from last year is gone (and now so's Kovy himself).

Yep. Every board and not just limited to hockey. Happens in every sports board.

The same martyr-ish "We're the only group of fans that reacts to losses this way! O woe is me for having to deal with this!" posts on all of them as well.

Lollll. Most posters here are not compose after losses. No matter how good we play. If we lose, most posters go nuts and start saying things they don't mean.
