Another no show against the Isles. I went to many games at the Nassau over the last 5 years where we no showed like this. Don't remember quite as many in Newark, but the epidemic seems to have finally crossed the LIE and the Hudson, and Pulaski Skyway as well!

This is a bad hockey team.

Cut some weight at the deadline if possible.

Listless performance.

The first period was certainly a no-show, and completely inexcusable. Second time in four games DeBoer had to use a timeout in the first ten minutes. That's a bad bad bad sign. Then of course they came out in the second period like they'd been shot out of a cannon but after the goal we made the Isles look like last year's Rangers. They had at least twenty blocked shots

Would any of you agree that this is the worst Devils team in the last 20 years?

That's pretty rough. They've had some sketchy teams that were carried by Marty - Sutter's first year among them. They had freaking Colin White and Mike Mottau as their top pairing and not much up front either. The '10/11 team is hard to grade because it was two completely unsustainable half-seasons.

Difference now is the goaltending can't carry their own gear into the crease since Marty got hurt.

The team needs a revamp. However it gets done, but it needs to be done.

As for the game, almost laughable. The highlight for me was Kosto sticking up for his teammate... and then gets knocked out! That just shows how the game went.

Team needs change desperately.

Only one way to fix this... bring Jacques Lemaire out of retirement once more.

I thought Barch was bad at fighting, my god. At least Barch doesn't get napalmed in three seconds.

The 10/11 team was actually built A LOT better than this team. The defense maybe not, but forwards for sure.

I mean Kovy, Parise, Zajac coming off a 68 point season, Langenbrunner who we didn't find out was completely washed up before the season started. Patty and Marty were each two/three years younger than now. Arnott was a pretty good trade, and he played good for us during that time period.

We had to dress fewer skaters cause of the cap problems, and had some BAD revolving d men like Corrente, OMG, Eckford, etc. It was mostly a POS coach who didn't know what the **** he was doing, and some bad apples in the locker room. Even Clarkson was better for most of that season than his last 25 games this year.

We have a Zajac who's less offensively productive than John Madden his last year with us, an injured Kovy, and Patty and Marty are a few years older. The rest are gone.

ok now i disagree with deboer

Although right wing David Clarkson didn’t score a goal for the 20th time in the last 22 games – after opening the season with 10 goals in the first 14 games – DeBoer thought he did a lot well.

“He just has to do more of what he did tonight – six shots, multiple chances,” DeBoer said. “They’re going to go eventually. I thought he was very good tonight for us.
lol clarkson was literally killing the offense with his stupid passes.

Clarkson has no gameplan in the offensive zone, aside from the back of the net where he excels. On the rush, he's lost.

God, I hope Lou doesn't overpay this guy.

I know Lou won't look into trading him, but I personally would explore it.

How about Clarkson's pass to no one in the offensive zone on a rush against Tampa Bay? That's when I first started to say ''Dude what the **** are you doing man?'' and since then my blood pressure has gone sky high with him.

Supposed he scores 3 or 4 more goals this year, and then he's almost on pace for 30 goals in an 82 game season. He'd probably get paid almost as much as a player coming off back to back 30 goal seasons.

it's one thing to not score, but he's not doing what he was doing in the beginning of the season. he is falling down more, making dumb choices/passes. when clarkson is playing well, you never see him on the ice trying to get up. he is on his feet, working the boards. of course you expect a dip in scoring, but i just don't see him playing the same way.

and that is what annoys me about him.

I at first was dead set against trading for Jagr but over the last few games my tune has changed. I would welcome Jagr with open arms. Dude knows how to score.

Yup he would be a big help. A first rounder for that old carcass though?
