Cam placed on waivers

27 posts in this topic


#NJDevils have placed Cam Janssen on waivers. Looks like the team won't carry an enforcer to start the year.


 



McCarthy SJ, Pelech SJ, Tyrell TB, Angelidis TB, Taormina TB, Janssen NJ, R Hamilton EDM, Larsen EDM, N Johnson BOS, Terry CAR, Emmerton DET

I REALLY hope we try to pick up Tyrell or Emmerton. Would definitely help with more depth (why not have some more?) And a better prospect pool.

I can't imagine any team picking up Janssen so he will be in Albany. That's too bad. I would rather see him gone from the NJ and Albany Devils. As stated no surprise.


I would trade scoring for enforcement any day.

Wow Drouin back to QMJHL. Sorry wasn't sure where to put this. Just saw it though.

Tao waived as well

I remember when some people around here thought he was the second coming to Brian Rafalski

he was pretty much the only good player during MacLean's disastrous start so it didn't seem crazy at the time

This was before Urbom, Gelinas, and Merrill looked promising. It was also before the days of Larsson and Severson. It's amazing how much fans will overrate their prospects. I was somewhat guilty of this for a while. "He almost played as well as Subban in the AHL plus he's a Devil so he's gotta be good! Who cares if he was a couple years older than PK at the time."

 

If the Devils improve their offensive prospects over the next few years, hopefully we'll be saying similar things about someone like Boucher.

Also Tao came in at the time when we lost Paul Martin to free agency and the devils didn't really have any "offensive defenseman" who were NHL ready at the time. Also I wouldn't put Paul too highly on the list of the most skilled offensive defenseman so there was a bit of a void between 2007 and 2011 when we were used to our defense contributing very little offense overall. It wasn't until the past couple of seasons where we are finally seeing producing from the back end so it was natural that Tao was greatly overrated at the time.

Also I really wonder if Tao would have contributed more if it wasn't for his freak injury during practice about 15 or so games in and we never saw him for the rest of the season.

tao > gelinas

 

hah, ok all i saw out of gelinas was bombs away and out of position

 

i understand Tao was overrated at the time cause we were needing a pmd.

 

it seems PDB wants shots from the point so...

 

maybe sal will have a good year hah

 

edit on gelinas by out of position i meant his puck handling is stink

I met Tao last year at a Syracuse-Albany game when I was living in Syracuse. Real nice guy, told him I was a big fan and a lot of us were. He seemed pretty happy being the captain down in the AHL. Of course everyone wants to play NHL level but could be much worse.

Who'd have thought that 5 years down the road, the best player in the NHL out of those guys would be Oduya?
