Zajac was throwing up all night from the flu

Are we sure he wasn't throwing up because his team was making him sick?

Now Clarkson is a different story. If he walks that's a kick in the nuts when we could have traded his passenger ass.

Elias isn't going anywhere... he said last year he hated the UFA experience...he just had his daughter...he's a Devil for life that much is a given pretty much.

So I stand by my original post, you field offers on all 3 up-coming UFA's and if somebody's willing to pay real value, you make a move.

I know exactly who is injured. The healthy players on the team are mostly a bunch of hot garbage right now. If Elias walks, the team goes into full rebuild mode. I don't know if I'd blame him right now, though I'd hope he still has some loyalty for the team.

Trade Clarkson now!!

He will still demand top dollar during off-season.

Now is the time to trade while his value is high!

12 games to turn this mofo around. Yeah........ Tall order.

It's just really deflating knowing what this team played for last year and where they've fallen to.

Whatever this team's flaws may be, they absolutely should be better than they are. There is no excuse for it. There are too many important players on this team not getting the job done. It's as simple as that.

I honestly feel they have one shot at turning this around and that shot comes Thursday. Boston, although slumping, is a solid team throughout and they've given the Devils fits for a few years now. I think if the Devils can come out and play their best game of the season, maybe, just maybe, they catch some confidence and some momentum to help them trough the final 11 games. But it's asking a lot. Losing is this team's mentality right now. There is no way around it. It is all they have been doing for the last two months. It's not easy to break out of that.

It's just totally disappointing. I'm not surprised at where they are right now but I certainly don't want it or enjoy it. It's a real helpless feeling to watch them just sink slowly like this. Whatever the case, it's pretty ****ed up what has happened to this team in just a few short months.

Maybe he ate too many fishsticks. The Devils didn't eat many that's for sure!

DeBoer said he would be fine with it if GM Lou Lamoriello decided not to make any more deals before Wednesday's deadline.

Martin Brodeur: "We feel we're good enough to make a run in the playoffs like last year. We just have to get in."

What does Vanderbeek have to do with last offseason's UFA? If you're talking money, Lou, JVB, and Parise have said to a man that the money was there. Parise has been quoted multiple times saying that the Devils offer was competitive with Minnesota but he wanted to go home. Yet there's still this misconception that the Devils didn't have the money to sign him.

Before anybody freaks out over this one too, what do people expect him to say? Throw the team under the bus and say yea we need help

Probably. I bet DeBoer was making him watch too many team highlights.

I'm not blaming them for Parise at all. That's one thing I've never crucified Lou over. I'm talking about letting Marty go to UFA. Should have just given him his $4.5 million for two years instead of the mess that was made. Before someone says ''Well they wanted to see how much Parise was gonna get'' then they could have just told Bryce to look elsewhere, or check back with us after we made our offer to Parise.

I swear people want him to pull a Torts = because what else is he going to say? I never ever want a coach like Rex over in Jets land or Torts airing the laundry out to the media. Keep it in the locker room, I don't care what you say in the pressers.
