+1. But whatever. I don't really trust Lou and Conte to make a decent pick anyway, so what's the difference.

I think as long as Lou drafts a forward the Devs will get a quality prospect whether it be #5 overall or #15. Would it be nice to have Barkov? No brainer, but that win felt good last night, and the SO was even better. Would like to see more of the same.

Heck, just one more win in that span gives us control over our playoff destiny..
If we had gone even .500 in the last 10 games, we'd be tied with Ottawa for 6th place.

Or if we had gone .500 when Marty was injured and we had to ride Moose.

God damn it, this season has been so frustrating.

Problem is we can win those 6 and still miss, assuming we win 6 in a row.

Lights have been on dimmer for the last month.
Now flickering before blackout.

Would be nice to see Sabres win in 3 periods tonight, give us fans some hope going to the game tomorrow afternoon.

I want the Devils to dig down deep and end the season rolling off wins, especially the 2 vs the Rangers.

I don't root for the Devils to lose, but watch them run the table and if they don't make the playoffs, what a waste.

Reminds me when we lost the chance to draft Mario Lemieux. Now Florida; that's a team that knows how to thank.

Kirk Muller was a great Devil and was part of the foundation that was set before the 3 Cups could be won.
He came to play every night with a work ethic that was nearly unmatched, along with top end skill.

Lou flipped him for Steph Richer too years later.

The Devils have had as much success since that draft as Pittsburgh, who knows what what have happened if we got Mario, for better or worse.

yeah -
Last season we could say we had a good penalty kill, a decent power play, a heck of a forecheck, solid D play in our zone, solid D play in the offensive zone at the points, very good goaltending, three premier scorers, some up and coming young talent with Henrique, and a great 4th line, excellent coaching and assistant coaching. Lots of things going for us.

This year... I can't really point one thing out that was consistently excellent all year. If they had kept the 4th line together the whole season, I might have been able to point to that.

Harrold had an outstanding game, but he's still a terrible hockey player and I never want to see his face ever again.

The D has looked very solid without 24 and 28 in there. It's not a coincidence in my opinion. Those 2 are so slow and immobile while the guys we have in can all skate and move the puck relatively well. We've given up 4 goals in 3 games. Can't remember the last time we did that.

If Volch returns to the lineup you can call your miracle run over instantly assuming they get there.

Add the most recent 10-game losing streak to the 6-game losing streak from earlier in the season. Lot of wasted opportunities there.

Cue Pete's pregame interview on Sunday.

''We're happy to get Volchie back in the lineup. He's an impact player, one that gives us incredible energy. You know he's a guy that can deliver a big hit, or block a shot, and inject some energy into the lineup with those kinds of plays''.

I think it was more than 2

Harrold hit one, Carter on that wild shot attempt, and there was at least 1 more

He's a brutal skater and I don't even know if he's aware that the game of hockey is played with a puck. When ever he's on the ice, he drains the energy out of everyone cause all 5 guys (including the goaler) are just begging for him to clear the zone but they are stuck chasing the puck on one of his several turnovers that is made every time he takes a shift for us. You know he's a guy that can deliver a big hit, or block a shot, but he deflates everyone 95% of the time when he's not making those types of plays, wich happen once in a blue moon BTW''.
