If you're one of the die-hards who won't give up until the playoffs are yanked from the Devils cold, dead fists (like me); then this post is for you. The Devils are 5 points out of the final...

A growing conglomeration of the stats I keep on the Devils over the course of the season. At the moment I have a snapshot matrix of the remaining NHL schedule and the sheet I put together on the records with the different Defensive combinations the Devils have used this year. Enjoy.

Taking Comparing the Defensive Groupings to the Next Level

In John Fischer's Flyers recap, there was a discussion about defensemen's records when playing together, max16s queried: "I’m wondering if someone out there steeped in Devils stats or someone who...

Philly Fans and writers just don't know when to quit

OK, so they want to set a record for number of people watching paint dry. Sean Leahy just couldn't leave it at that. His parting shot" "So if you have a couple of hours to kill on Monday, go watch some dudes and dudettes paint lines and logos on ice and discover what watching the mid-'90s New Jersey Devils was like."

Top 6 forward we've been looking for?

Flyers to buy out Briere. He wants to stay close to home: No matter where he ends up signing, however, he said the Philadelphia region was going to remain his permanent home. "This is my home," he said. "Wherever I'm going to end up, the kids are staying here and I'm coming back here. Yeah, this is my home. This is what we consider home now."

This would be great. The Rags hiring a head coach with NO coaching experience

Of course Ranger fans would love the idea of Messier being the head coach. That is until they were 4-22-3

Anybody up for another NHL.com playoff bracket challenge?

I created an "In Lou We Trust" league, feel free to join. If the link doesn't work, let me know I'll figure something else out. Worst case, after signing in, you can search the leagues for "In Lou We Trust" and find it pretty easily I'd guess. My biggest question is how come you don't get bonus points for picking the Rangers to lose in a sweep? If it was my contest, I'd give extra points for that.

(Updated) Revised Playoff Point Estimate

In the pre-season, John postulated it would take 56 points to make the playoffs. Well, now with all the EC teams having played at least 1/2 of their games, I think it's a reasonable time to revisit...

Devils Playof Countdown

2

We're getting closer folks. The Devils are at the point where a .667 points percentage will guarantee them a spot, regardless of other team's performance. Not a guarantee yet, but the odds are getting greater. I included what it will take for each of the teams below the Devils to overtake them based on points achieved by the Devils. I'll try to keep it updated daily. Suggestions welcome!!

Rebuttal: Why John MacLean's Failure Should Indeed Dictate a Non-Rookie Coach

Should the Devils Put in a Claim for Leighton?

7

The Flyers recalled Michael Leighton on re-entry waivers today. I'm not saying this is anything more than a short-term backup acquisition, not knowing what Moose's plans are, he's an UFA July 1, and Leighton, 29, would only cost the Devils $800K next season. Not a bad price for a backup goalie with playoff experience. Not to mention the benefit of putting the screws to the Flyers this would entail.

No Doubt About Brodeur Being a Devil For Life

18

But he sees the value in the organization getting some draft picks, though he will probably never play with players picked with them. "It’s not about me playing with them," Brodeur said. "It’s being part of the organization that I’m part of. I plan on being part of it – not as a player all the time – but I’m going to care about this organization." Put that in your Semin pipe and smoke it "he who shall not be named."

Devil-centric Playoff Scenario Generator Available

2

Yahoo already has an NBA Playoff Scenario Generator available, so I'm hoping a more pretty one will be available there shortly, but in the mean time, here is one in Excel 2007 for y'all to play with if you wish. For anybody that needs a Excel '97-03 version, you can find that here. Happy number crunching. There are still 142 games involving the #7-14 teams in the east, so it could be time consuming to make a lot of custom changes, but .. You'll more than likely have to right-click the links and save the file(s) to use them.
