I still believe

Right now, the Devils suck. There I said it, they plain old suck. They cannot score, have trouble in their own end,  and in general, look like they will never be able to recover in any game if they are trailing.

Yet, as I logged on and saw that Parise will miss the next three months, I still believe.

This team, the team that I invest so much of my time in, made me so upset last night in Vancouver. They played with the Nucks and seeing them not be able to put it together was depressing, but, I still believe

Last year, the Flyers, yes, the same Flyers that made it all the way to the god forsaken finals and knocked us out of the playoffs, had a similar stretch that no one seems to talk about.

The Flyers went 2-10-1 during a stretch lasting late November into December that  forced management to fire their coach and left the team in shambles.

Even though the Flyers are an extreme example, their roster from last year looks a lot like ours right now minus Pronger and Emery/Leighton/Boucher.

Another example, two years ago, the Hurricanes lost nine of 16 games in November 2008, fired their coach (who went on to lead the Flyers last year - Peter Laviolette), and were middling out after a strong start at 12-11-2. The Canes made it to the playoffs, knocked us out (I was at game 7 and still have nightmares), made it to the conference finals and lost to Pittsburgh.

However, despite this, I still believe, and I also believe that the Devils should NOT FIRE MACLEAN!!!!

The talent is there

Maclean is calling the right shots

The work ethic is there 

The team is embarrassed 

The team is creating chances

The team is hungry

And most of all, at least I hope the Devils, the team that I live and die with, like me, still believes.
