Response to First Of All, A Bit Of Perspective
the physical, intimidating team kinda disappeared last year. We bitched and moaned about it here all year long.
Some fresh, young, hungry blood wouldn't hurt either. Marty, Scott, Dano, not for nothing, they didn't seem terribly broken up about losing the cup. Maybe some fresh new faces who haven't been there yet, combined with guys like madden who have the sting of defeat fresh in their minds is what they need.
And, stand up for your goalie, don't let people run him constantly, or take that extra swipe at his mit after he grabs the puck. I haven't seen this in a devils team in years, but this year, they just walked away, no scrums, no "put you on your ass if you get near the net" attitude, and the other teams took advantage of it. It's the same as we always say with guys like holik and mckay in front of and annoying opposing goalies - this year, we let them do it to marty way too much.
