My first GDT in this run was late so I countered it with early and then, by request, went with early again.
Technically any GDT posted after 7pm the day before a game is a GDT.
Now, AfroThunder - nothing like a measuring stick that changes lengths!
BGDT - before game day thread
the day of the game begins at midnight, not 24 hours prior.
"Devils just trap trap trap trap. Sure it's a modified trap different than LeMaire's but even with two forecheckers they have the defense sitting back with the third guy clogging up the middle of the ice." - explanation of how the Devils still employ the trap
I think we can beat em too. They aren't blowing out teams anymore like they were, and they are 1-2 in their last 3. The two losses were to the biggest chump teams in the Conference. If MacLoser, and the Hurricanes can beat the Bruins, and Tampa Bay who has become the biggest disappointment in the league, then I think we can especially at home. We took our best loss of the season. The only really good loss that didn't result in bad goaltending, shorthanded goals, or turning the puck over in our zone this season was to them. Moose made a bad puck play on one goal, but aside from that it was a good loss, and effort, and maybe Dallas were the only good losses we've had this season that was simply us getting beat by a better team.
We didn't do a good job of keeping it out of our zone that first game in Boston either, but that was the only loss to really be proud of.
One thing I'm concerned about is we've cleaned up a lot of problems. I won't name them, because every time I do they come back. We've cleaned up a lot of our problems, but one thing I notice is an obligatory loss every week that's either lost by a big blowout, or by some bad play by us. A few weeks ago it was to Carolina, and then the next week it was to Boston, and then last week it was to Calgary. If we can eliminate blowouts or stupid losses especially to chump teams we should have beaten like Calgary, and Carolina we'll have a much better season.
So after myself testing the Devils to see if they can eliminate many problems plaguing the team, and them passing all of them I wanna see if they can pass this, and eliminate these big blowouts or dumb losses that happen weekly that could have been avoided.
