I still don't like Kovy double shifting and I always feel that we would be better off just putting a whole group of fresh bodies.

What is the word on Joe Whitney, his Albany stats are not going to jump out at you, but he was the caption on BC. Not saying he should be recalled just because of that, but whats the word on him?

Matteau's getting an invite to camp, what do you guys think his chances are of making the team? I think he could look good on the LW with Josefson and Clarkson


It's unknown if Matteau is invited, he is on the list of eligible people to invite. Chere messed his first tweet up.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Not going to get into a thing about ELCs here, that aside I don't expect that Matteau is ready for the NHL.

Do ELCs have the same 'slide' provisions that they did in the previous CBA?

Definitely not. He takes dumb penalties versus comparatively weak competition, imagine how bad he'll be when he gets even more beaten on plays.

i don't think its really worth inviting matteau mid season like that, his chance to make the team right away is low and might as well continue his development in juniors.

I don't think inviting or not inviting probably plays a major role in his development. If I had to guess which is more likely to help, I'd guess coming to NHL camp, seeing what the Devils expect from NHL players, really getting to see how much better he has to get, and getting to know the coaches and the organization will probably help more than 2 or 3 of the same old junior games.

I miss Mottau. Not as a hockey player, but I liked him.
