The bad times continue as the Devils can’t hang with contenders or pretenders alike.

Times are truly bleak for the New Jersey Devils and we recapped the embarrassments against Boston and Pittsburgh as well as the unlikely third period win over Detroit. Why unlikely? Check out John’s piece on just how atrocious this team has been after 40 minutes and find out.

This was recorded before yesterday’s latest disaster of a game against a team that is themselves trying to escape out of the league’s basement. Please excuse any hint of optimism in our voices, it is gone now.

We also tackled some questions from Twitter, mostly about the coaching so keep sending them and let us know what you think should be done about the coaching situation. Who would you bring in to try and right the ship? It’s only a quarter of the way through the season but the playoffs already almost feel out of reach...

Let us know your thoughts at @AAtJerseyBlog. Also, we asked on Twitter but let us know in the comments how you would feel about two slightly shorter episodes per week instead of our current format.

Last but not least, Happy Thanksgiving! Give thanks for everything in your life that isn’t this team at the moment. Appreciate your families and friends and do yourselves a favor, watch some football instead of the imminent disappointment looming in Montreal.
