Tedenby to albany

Not giving up on this guy yet, always like Teddy. With that said, he will definitely be better off in the minors. Hopefully one day he will be able to make it back to the NHL, but clearly he is not ready now.

The NHL level coaches were helping in Albany during the lockout right? I can't remember but if that is true and Teddy still had these positional and hockey sense issues that does not bode well.

There are 3 things that really hurt Tedenby.

1. Speed-way to slow for his size

2. Shot-not a NHL caliber shot and has ZERO finishing skills.

3. Hockey Sense- he is one of those players that will never get it, no matter who tells him or the number of times. He just doesn't have the hockey sense.

I agree with 1 and 2, but lots of people said Kovy had no hockey sense, and he got better. Hockey sense can be taught to a certain degree. He'll never have the intuitive knowledge the Elias has, but he could become a smart enough player somewhere, though probably not the NHL.

Wasn't a fan of the pick when it was made and watching the draft. The more I saw of Tedenby on extended game tape (and not just snapshot highlight reels) the less enthused I became about him being an NHLer. I rarely like to sort of tout a feeling I had on somebody for one, because it's hard for people to verify that regardless, but especially when it is about a guy who may be seeing his NHL dream crumble before him, but I never saw the sense in this pick at all.

I'd really like to know what was going through Conte and Labraaten's minds when the pick was made and what they think even now. I'd also like to know what kind of assessment the Devils org does on their guys in terms of development and how that may factor into or affect future evaluation of guys in the draft that may be similar in terms of size, liabilities, production, etc.

NHL Central Scouting had him ranked higher than last year's norris winner so somebody else obviously saw something too

Yeah, this is expected. It's such a shame to see someone with talents that aren't easy to teach, to continue to disappoint. I won't give up on him, but I would definitely hope to see some really good AHL numbers if there is ever a chance he sees NHL time in the future. You would think that a couple years of good coaching would result in some improvements, but it doesn't seem to be so with Tedenby.

But if this means Darche is getting signed, I'm going to be very scared for this team.

What was going through their mind? I mean, can't you figure that out yourself? Tedenby's fast, he's good in traffic, he looks to have elite stick-handling skills, and he played for a men's team at age 17-18. I wasn't a fan of the pick either but it's exactly the kind of pick you want to make at the bottom of the first round - a boom or bust selection, take the guy with the best skills and hope you can get everything else to work by the strength of your organization. Tedenby's issue seems to be that he hasn't really improved. He's quick, but his top speed doesn't seem faster than average, his defense never developed, and his shot isn't there either.

there MUST be some sort of trade in the works...or at least being attempted

That's a negative. Too early to be working on trades. He's just being sent down. Someone else will be brought up to get a different look.

He's not bad. They had him on the first or second line all season so far. He played some with henrique early in the season and then some with josefson. I wouldn't consider him a top prospect though. Looks like they are just seeing if something sticks

Anderson is 30 years old, he's definitely not a prospect.

I keep seeing that we could have had TJ Oshie, but I don't understand. Wasn't he drafted years before Tedenby?

EDIT Are you thinking of Bergfors?

Yeah Oshie was already signed by the Blues in 2008

But we traded down twice in 08. We originally had 21st overall but we trade with Washington and Minnesota I believe, and took Teddy at 24th... Jordan Eberle was taken 22nd :(

If we got Ebs at 22nd and Henrique too in Round 3, certainly could make a case for the best steals of the draft.

I remember, I think it was the 09, maybe 2010 WJC, but either way, point of the story is during one game, Teddy UNDRESSED two slovak defenders with a beautiful side step move leaving what was basically a 2-0 once the trailer appeared, Teddy made the pass and the goalie had little chance. That's the type of play I've never seen from him in the NHL. He's had a few good looks on breakaways, but he's not been able to maneuver around defenders while still playing his game and it's a shame because if he was 6" taller, he may not have had any of the problems he's experiencing now. I still think he could be decent if he gained some weight and just had a little more mass to him so he didn't get tossed around like a ragdoll in the corners...
