This team is giving up close to 3 goals per game. Let that sink in. This is the first time I am truly angry this season. I can accept lack of scoring because generally you need the talent to do it. There is just no excuse for the consistently piss poor defensive coverage game in game out. I don't even know who is to blame. Is it Lou and Pete for the never ending merry go round on D. Is it just Pete for lack of focus on the defensive game. Is it Scott Stevens. Is it the player personnel. Is it leadership. Maybe all of that?? I'm just absolutely baffled.
i honestly think the loss of robinson might be the backbreaker for how bad the defense has been for the most part this season.
i wonder what lou could possibly be thinking watching this garbage?
He's accepted this garbage too. Or he's blaming Pete. I wonder what he was thinking not taking back Sykora, but inviting that washed up POS Darche to camp. I think when we miss the playoffs people will really be calling for Lou's head. He's been an average GM since 05 so let's call it as we see it. He's only been average because of last year, and a few great moves like Loktionov. If not for that he'd be a below average GM since 05.
If we're gonna call Marty a below average goalie for however many years let's call Lou what he is. Below average GM since last lockout.
Lou is to blame for leaving this team too damn thin earlier in the year when the Devils started getting banged up and coming back down to earth. He finally brought in some reinforcements, but it was too little too late.
I hate Clarkson like nobody's business right now. Really thought this idiot wanted to be a solid hockey player this year. DeBoer is apparently trying to beat that out of him tonight. Good luck Pete.
It's definitely a problem when Loktionov, Bernier, and Carter are often our best players every night. This team isn't fantastic, but the fact is Zajac, Henrique, Clarkson, etc. often aren't contributing any offense. Elias has also had a lot of sloppy games this season, but at least he is putting up points. Can't even get started on how much of a cluster**** our defense has been compared to last season. It's like they all forgot how to defend.
No way man. Don't let me negativity get you down. It's not like this hasn't been going on for weeks now, right?
Soon approaching 4 regulation wins in 21 games. Maybe they have one hot streak left in them, but I don't see it. I've already accepted that this year is lost. I will honestly be shocked to **** if this team makes the playoffs. Absolutely shocked.
This game needs more Calrkson, that's all I know for sure.
I hope he is playing so much because they want to trade him.PLEASE
