Afternoon Line

“The thing is, we used to be a team that didn’t hover over .500,” Brodeur said Wednesday afternoon. “That’s something only the last few years we’ve been content with being that.

“Even the year we made it all the way (2011-12), all year it’s not like we gave ourselves a big cushion. We had to come back late to the middle of the season and we had to push to get to the playoffs.”

“So that’s something that going forward (Lamoriello) has to make sure we get back to that for the organization to be more of an impact. That means having a solid regular season and a solid start to the regular season, no letdown and be a power house like some of the teams are.”

He should’ve considered stopping more pucks this season instead of blaming management…

I was going to say the same thing.

Scoring has been an issue in New Jersey as well (especially this year), but their biggest single issue over the last 3-4 seasons has been between the pipes. More often than not lately, New Jersey is a team that works hard, outshoots its opponents, but gets torpedoed by bad goaltending.

Reading comments Brodeur has made over the last several years, it’s remarkable how un-self-aware he can be.
