Unfair for Lucic to get lumped in w/ Horton. Right up there w/ Neely getting lumped in w/ Stevens. Ironic.

Lucic was moved off that line and scored a highlight reel goal. CJ put him back b/c when Marchand DK Horton did get out of their zone, they were offsides 13 times. Last year he was moved off that line, he Peverley and Kelly caught fire. DK ended up being moved to wing b/c he was so awesome w/o Lucic.

Every game, no matter win or lose, the discussion is Lucic. Even when he does play well, never enough. He had a bad night. His linemates did dinky ****in doo, but yeah, of course, here we are.

No one wants to talk a/b our D getting swarmed? Rubbed out? Can't connect a pass out of the zone? Routinely coughing up pucks at our blueline? Boychuk? Ference? Chara and Siedenberg look exhausted.

If Lucic could just deal w/ a two man forecheck.

@NaokoFunayama: Monstrous night for Gregory Campbell. Led all forwards with 21:12. 2 goals, +2, won 67% of faceoffs.

kind of funny we posted pretty much the same thought at the same time. So I'm not the only one

Despite 4 goals, I thought Dobby played pretty good...how many PP's did the Devils have?

It's a possibility.



Slow to get up. Not a good sign. Hopefully just dazed and will be back.

As long as they show up when it really counts, I couldn't care less how they look in a 48 games in 100 days season on a team that is 1st in division and 4th in entire NHL.

I bit my tongue last game and posted positively, can't, can't do it again.......

After weathering a storm like we did and uncannily coming out on top with a couple of shorties and thus a 3 goal lead the system did nothing but allow the other team to counter it with pinching and heavy forechecking. Once again we see Claude's system handing momentum right back in the other direction.

3 goal lead, a demoralized Devil's team, but the play continues to be in our end, because we don't headman the puck, we think, we wait, we pass it back. It seems so many times, this team's concern, and now their only ability is to get it past the redline. Once that's accomplished, it's defensive posturing no matter what the score.

5 minute PP, no shots on net? Further proof that the system over time dulls the instinctual aspects of the player's offensive side of the game. I don't care who you put on the ice, a coach should be able to teach a team how to score, or at least get shots on net. The PP is when coaching has a chance to be a factor, it's when set plays and positioning get to be executed with the most consistency, and to plan. Yet Claude is unable no matter who the is in the line up, get these guys to do that. Anyone remember Chris Simon's run on the PP with the Caps a few years ago? They stuck thick head in front of the net and he picked up the scraps. Talent is great to have on the PP, but a decent one (not great) doesn't need as much talent as one thinks. The idea our talent is only good enough for practically worst in the league every year is ludicrous. This is on the coaching staff, 100% at this point. And again a shotless 5min PP only gives the other team confidence.

Now the young Swede is coming to the team? There's no future for Claude on this team, short of a deep run this coming PO. He's done a suburb job at righting the ship of the entire franchise and bringing a cup to Boston. But to give him a more talented team than this one is like putting a silk hat on a pig (no offense). Everything has a shelf-life, and Claude has reached his expiration date. At this point he's a soulcrusher.

Sidenote:
I don't think AV's elbow wasn't entirely malicious. Reckless yes, somewhat intentional, probably. But to me it looked as if he was trying to finish a check but lunged when Brad pulled up short on him. He was desperately trying to make contact and got caught in his own physical and emotional momentum, combined with some callous play. I say 3 games. AV is a big hitter but I don't think he has a history.

I do not disagree and have never disagreed in this thread that the B's just barely won that game...IT WAS NOT A PRETTY WIN. I am extremely sorry though if you thought I was trying to take the "hockey knowledge" crown away from you.

That's what the NBC coverage said. If we got one I didn't see it, and if we did it was squib in on Marty.

3 on 2, Lucic has a chance to shoot, drops it to Horton, of course no shot on goal. About the only chance they had all night, other than the one Horton couldn't lift over Brodeur's pad. I'd of had Horton off that line a month ago, Seguin up.

I have that terrible feeling the only time we'll see it broken up is down 2 goals in an elimination game. And at that point, you'll have guys who are scrambling to find chemistry b/c CJ couldn't overcome his ocd earlier in the season when he had the chance.

Now Marchand. Someone has to step up. Does this mean Pandalfo playing opposite Jags?

Check Volchenkov's hit on Zack Boychuk. Guy has trouble controlling his elbow.

You've been trolling this whole thread. Go back and read some of your posts. I gave you an honest assessment based on what I saw and an analyst noticed, and you come back with your " oh Pierre said that".

You were being a big time troll. Can't stand those " witty" responses that bring absolutely nothing to the table. From the sound of it you agreed with what I said. No need to be a ass about it.
