2013-2014 Lineup/Roster Thread

1,544 posts in this topic

McKinnon, Drouin, Jones, Lindholm, Barkov but no Schneider.

 

Marty/Kinkaid in net.

 

Marty retires.

 

Kinkaid and stopgap after that.

 

Ehhh. Maybe. Depending after spot we would have gotten. However, IMO I think Larsson and 9th would have bagged us McKinnon in a heartbeat.

 

Not a chance in my opinion.

Yeah.  Lou was asked about trading into the top five, and said they'd probably want our entire house.

Lou going to call up someone else w/ Henrique unlikely to play?  We going to see Whitney? Sislo? DB must really not want to play Teddy. i'm sure Lou's looking for a trade partner.

Looks like Schneider tonight, then Marty tomorrow I guess.

 

Edit: explain to me why PDB is playing Janssen vs DET, the team with 4 fighting majors (Devils have 5). They're not even dressing a fighter tonight.

More brilliance from Pete- per TG, Brunner back in, Josefson out. More Janssen and Sestito. More bench shortening in the 3rd. More gassed Elias and Jagr. Pete is just a maestro behind the bench. A genius.

Josefson was awful last night.  Do you honestly think if the Devils dressed what you consider their best 4th line right now that that line would play in the 3rd period?

I think pretty much any line that doesn't have Cam Janssen on it can at least be trusted with some ice time in the 3rd period. Cam Janssen is useless. You know this.

He was not awful, at least not worse than any other non-Zubrus forward.  He hit a post in the first period and had another chance hop over his stick on a 2-on-1 in the second period.

And would they play and should they play are two different things.  Of course they wouldn't play, this is Pete we're talking about.  Unless it was Carter-Gionta-Bernier, then they'd play 15 minutes and get matched up against every first line.  But you can't keep doing this...11 games in 18 days and we're running the old guys into the ground with all this supposed depth up front playing two-thirds of an AHL line.

He had an atrocious penalty killing shift.  Just really truly bad.  He hit a post with a prayer shot and that line did have some decent shifts, but he can't kill penalties like that and expect to play.

 

What happened to the depth?  3 guys are hurt and Olesz left.  That's 4 forwards who were on the opening roster who aren't now.  Also Tedenby is just taking up space at this point.

God this is such a simple solution. Why doesn't Lou trade Elias to St. Louis for Brian Elliot and have Elliot sit as a healthy scratch behind Marty and big cor? I mean I've won five games straight after the trade in my be a pro why can't lou just see it?

unfortunately janssen should be playing against the rags, we will be out-hit again.  just keep his mins in check

 

is it time to mix it up and the break up the number one line to try and establish a better second line now? (i know - sacrilege) however, elias wanted to play with jagr and with even with all the possession time figures they arent lighting up the scoreboard. the question is which two forwards play with a combo of zub-jags-travis-patty/

Janssen and Sestito both in the lineup makes my blood boil.  This is what I want to see.

 

Zubrus - Zajac - Jagr

Elias - Henrique - Bernier

Boucher - Loktionov - Ryder

Tedenby - Josefson - Brunner

I just want Pete playing 4 lines that have some sort of offensive ability.  Janssen and Sestito don't bring anything to the team except energy.  This team doesn't need that. THEY NEED GOALS!

Have we had a defenseman not get hurt this season?  Now Zidlicky is hurt.  UGH!

When we get 100% healthy, here is my ideal lineup.

 

Zubrus - Zajac - Jagr

Elias - Henrique - Ryder

Boucher - Loktionov - Bernier

Clowe - Josefson - Brunner

 

Greene - Fayne

Gelinas - Larsson

Merrill - Zidlicky

Volchenkov has been very solid this season and is key to the pk. I would much rather him in over zidlicky and even fayne, and I'm sure Merrill will show some warts as well.

Otherwise you're playing g zidlicky or Merrill on the pk and I'm not too find of that idea.
