GDT: Devils possess the Garage: 7pm PPV, Team1040

Postby Cornuck » Tue Jan 13, 2009 9:46 am

So, another PPV game tonight, where the team has a 2-4-1 record. Coincidence? Or does do the players get thrown off their game known that less people are watching? All-time PPV stats are 42-31-2 - so personally I don't think it makes a difference.

Tonight should be a decent game between two evenly matched teams. Both teams are missing their all-star goalies as well. Goals for are identical at 127, while NJ has let in 10 fewer.

It comes down to this. The Canucks need to stop their downhill slide and start making some points up. They now know that their saviour will be returning soon. They know that the 8 million dollar man can score. They should be feeling pretty good about things, and maybe have a little more confidence coming into tonight's game. Not sure who's starting tonight, but either way, the skaters have to earn a win for a change and not rely on their (backup) goalie to make the saves.

So however watching; PPV, online or just listening in - let's hope that the team takes this one seriously and adds 2 points to the record.

Holy hell...

Okay Labarbara does suck, I'm pleased he's made the decision for us.

This is the kind of effort, coming off a long string of mediocrity, that truly concerns me. We're getting into "habitual stupidity" territory.

3-0 devils. This team doesn't want to play. It is embarrassing. This team needs a wake up call.

Can't think of a better one than #1, but if that doesn't do it then I think AV has a shorter lifespan than anybody might think.

From what I have seen of the highlights it looks as though a combination of a lack of defensive coverage and goalie miscues. Overall a lack of focus and evidently based on Bowness at practice the coaches are getting tired of the lack of effort on defense.

Yes, lazy-ass play by D and O which has been going on for a while. Completely outworked.

And 4 games in, Sundin already *seems* to be little more than a footnote to the games. The hype has sure gone away in a hurry.

Not a bad thing in my eyes. They can now start to concentrate on hockey again.

Yeah this is starting to scare me...

We're just not competing lately. I don't know wether the guys are looking to Sundin to score some goals, or if they just think they can afford to lose cuz Lou isn't there but at this rate we'll be missing the playoffs. The magic finally wore off for the backups. They sucked. All you can say about those awful goals.

It's a telling sign when Kesler has more shots on goal than both Sedins combined.

Ya gotta give Sundin a minimum of 2 to 3 weeks of games before he will be the real Sundin.. You can start to see flashes of it now..

Tonights game was another one of those, where the team is not ready to play, They are either not prepared by the coach or they are shutting him out..

Goaltending was as bad as it could possible be in the first period, But Sanford did play ok in the 2nd and 3rd.. Can't wait for Lou to get back.. But once again, He will take a few weeks to get his grove on.

NJD played a great first period and look very hungry.. They deserved to win the game.. They looked a step ahead of the Canucks on almost all the plays.

Hopefully the Canucks can bang out a few wins in their last 3 before the All Star break..

Worst game of the season so far, maybe second to the STL one last week.
E1-E4 = I made it up.
E5 = Found it on tsn.
