    Did Lerg even get in a game up there?

    WTF are they DOING?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    Probably worth staying home just to listen to Kevin’s pregame to see how they try and spin this clusterfu#@

    poor guy sitting there trying to pick up the pieces of shitty hand he’s been dealt. Maybe Dan can skate while he calls the game.

    There was no way Lerg was going to sniff the ice up there but again they’re only 19 points out so why let us keep Dave. Funny last game Lerg played most people cheered every time a shot didn’t go into the next. They can spin it anyway they want there can’t be a player on that team that has any faith in his play at this level. With the way Elmira is playing maybe they can hang a snowman on him sunday.

    Guess they shitcanned the great business driver that everybody loved the past 3 season too. Probably saved another 15-20$

  4. Titans04 Says:

    Bus driver.

    Haczyk apparently just isn’t some random stranger who had nothing bettet to do tonight, plus he has good taste in selecting his favorite big club:

    Well, Lerg is certainly getting a chance to work on his psychology…

    So if the quote from Nietzsche — “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger!” — is true, the T-Devils have to be a pretty strong bunch by now, eh?

    Anybody have *anything* positive to say about this team right now?

    Boy – Chris Lam really showed us! I give him grief about not signing any college kids and he goes out there and signs two.

    14 skaters tonight – hope these kids are well rested and ready to take a beating.

  8. chiarams Says:

    Shtikl – my positive is that for the first season in a decade, I won’t give a cent to the Trenton franchise and won’t set foot in the arena.

    As much as I miss going to the games, I’ll be dead before I put a nickel in Chris Lamiorello’s pocket.

  9. Titans04 Says:

    I’ll defer to Mike to cover all the positives, we’re ready when you are buddy.

  10. trentondevilsfan Says:

    They signed people!!!!!!

    That certainly helps. Still quite short benched but will be nice to see some new blood; certainly plenty of ice time available.

    I try to stay positive but the positives have been about as common as wins lately and have always been followed by a ‘but’… in they played hard but…..

  11. Shtikl Says:

    Here’s a heartfelt wish that you don’t see *ANY* blood on the ice tonight, new or old. Fresh legs, sure. Good luck, T-Devs!
