Devils/Leafs… Thoughts from Section 209

Well seems I’m the only one here who watched this fiasco…. so let me get to it…. but gotta save some stuff for the Month In Review coming soon to a website near you!

But where to start on this one….

— I have issues with Brent Sutter… but I’ll get to those probably Friday Night (depending on how nasty work gets to me)
— Jamie Langenbrunner looks trapped in concrete on ice, and really should NOT have played… forget about having major ice time in the third period… don’t tell me about chasing points in October and WE LOST ANYWAY… let him get HEALTHY (not to mention it’s a dick move to call up Berfgors and let him sit in the XL-4000 Luxury Easy Chair once reserved for Kevin Dean, the all time king of healthy scratches)
— we call up Halishuk and he looks good… plays with energy and keeps up on the Madden line… and he SITS in the 3rd period… oops…I’m Sutter foreshadowing…..
— poor Gio… stuff that puck into Toskala a hundred times more would ya?? Thankfully the Zub-a-roonie saved the day
— this team went into a shell at 2-0… then blew the lead… Clarkson with the best fight of his career wakes them up… they take the lead… and go into a shell… and blow it AGAIN, this team can’t sit on a lead in the THIRD PERIOD… STOP TRYING IN THE FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (go with what is WORKING)
— Toronto worked their BALLS OFF, and frankly deserved to win this game… Ron Wilson.. you can coach my team any day sir!
— ANDY GREENE… there is no stopping you my man!!! (he’s even made Mottau look better)
— Marty, you looked tired and uninterested…. I know it will never happen… you want to light a fire on this team and send a message.. “Kevin… you’re up Saturday”… watch this team respond!
— Power play.. AWFUL (why are the grinders on the outside and the play-makers like Elias and Parise standing in front… HELLO)… penalty killing… WORSE… geesh

there was not alot to be happy about here… and for a team at 5-2-2, there’s a LOT to not be happy about…..

more to come in the next few days!!!

(oh good I can edit this :p)

also:
— Luke Schenn… sounds like a Mortal Kombat fighter!!
— Faceoffs were AWFUL.. yeah the stats say 45%… but I think 90% of those were in the first period… if I use one more percentage I sound like the guy in the NHL Network commerical giving 110% 100% of the time…..

Devils/Stars Thoughts from Section 209….

Hey i noticed no one else wrote something up.. must still be coming back… I see an open rush.. I’m pinching in (which is scary since I’m like… a GOALIE… but I’ve scored goals before :p)….so with that in mind… time to share some good joy from tonight…..

Things I noticed from this game:

— THIS is the Stars team I’ve seen all year on Center Ice not the one that showed up in MSG, bad goals, awful plays… and glad to see we pounded a team playing like shit like VEAL (again each game this more and more feels like the Devils of old)… Dallas is one of 5 or 6 teams I watch often on CI, if for their awesome announcers more then anything….
— Brendan Morrow lost his freaking mind in the 3rd period… and it’s only 3 weeks into the season
— watching Avery run like a scalded dog from a stickless Clarkson (who then blocked a shot too) was a classic throwback to Wil E Coyote and the Road Runner on ice.. hilarity!!!

— ANDY GREENE!!!!!! Told y’all last year was a fluke!!
— Jesus Christ the Zub-a-roonie was something to see!!!
— Marty, PLEASE save some of this for April and beyond!!!
— ANOTHER Clarkson sighting… nice shot.. shame most NHL goalies stop it… but I’ll take it!!
— ANDY GREENE!!!!!!!!!!!!
— Salvador beating the piss out of the guy who ran Martin (even though Martin bounced off)… this video to be youtubed later!! cool.gif
— Hard to pencil a Devil who looked BAD tonight

— one thing I did NOT like… why in a 5-0 bombing are you NOT playing Vrana more… I don’t wanna hear about defense and lessons to a kid… THIS IS THE EXACT TYPE OF GAME TO GET HIM MORE ICE TIME, and he only gets 10:50… WTF !??!?!!?!?

Comment away folks!!!
