It's like hot potato in the d and neutral zone.

The team doesn't deserve a win but Schneider sure as **** does. I hope he gets it.

I haven't seen a forward win one puck battle since the first period.

A pass hits them on the stick or the back of their heel - it just doesn't matter it bounces off of them.

I haven't seen any forwards skate hard except for Elias, Jagr and Zubrus who are so damn slow, it doesn't matter.

Wtf Zajac? wtf Henrique? where are you guys? Ryder just scooting around.

offense is not the problem on this team. it's the inability to clear the zone, make a break out pass, skate the puck out of dangerous situations. we're scoring enough to win. the defense is god ****ing awful

This is true. We gotta stop leaving our guys all alone like that.

This isn't anywhere close to enjoyable hockey.

So broken, no cohesion, nothing.

Andy Greene, I love him, but he has been **** this whole season. Along with everyone else. We are seeing classic Volch tonight tho, which sucks.

If they win this game it's close to a miracle these west coast games r tough but we r out classed here. I think we have the players to be more competitive they r just not in the lineup. A slow start to this season may not be the worst thing.

That's probably happening now to be honest...four games in six days on both coasts with the old fart brigade playing in all of 'em.

And honestly Vancouver's BETTER than the Devils. At a certain point we have to allow for the possibility maybe the experts were 'right' about us

Just giving the puck away through the neutral zone. This is the kind of second rate team play you see from Edmonton or Florida.

Zajac is going to end up being the next Rolston at this rate, but worse.

The best line for the Devils tonight is the line that is a combined 114 years old.

What a mess. I really don't know when were going to win because I can't see them pulling this one out.

Because blaming Marty is more difficult when he's not playing

in short kovy/parise/clarkson excuse makers can go **** themselves as it's probably the view dedumbass has on why we suck

Forwards are:
Not getting the puck out of the zone
Missing defensive assignments
Not getting the puck deep.
Not slowing down rushes through the neutral zone.
Not completing passes.

Result - D is hung out to dry. Lots of breakaways, breakdowns, etc...

This is all on the forwards right now.

Slow isn't as bad when you can pass and passing starts w defenseman that can move puck. Our only good line tonight is our slowest
