Yeah, but the Devils have had a long-time habit of making backups look like All-Stars.


Are you suggesting Jeff Hackett wasn't all-star material?? (Yeah, that round-house kick save on Andreychuk in the late 90's still bothers me.)

Kinda short notice to fly someone from Albany to L.A. In situations like this, you work with what you've got. And all we've got is Fraser. Ugh.


yeah i guess... but also its most likely just a formality to put a name on the 4th line... Kovy will play all Fraser's shifts for sure lol

i would like to see them call up stephane veilleux regardless - the problem here isn't necessarily that they have no extra bodies, though they don't right now - it's that their extra bodies are terrible.

Maybe. But in the past, the Devils have played with a short bench, so why dress Fraser for no reason? They also haven't shied away from saying they're skating 7 defensemen and 11 forwards, so why call Fraser a LW if he won't be playing LW?

It could be that they're repeating the Corrente experiment. Remember him playing on the 4th line against Philly in the playoffs? Might've been the best he ever played in a Devils uniform.

Also, I get the feeling Kovy's minutes won't be up in the 30-minute range for the next several games. They've got 6 games in 10 nights, the first three of which being in L.A., Phoenix and Dallas.

Who takes Sykora's spot on the first line. Tedenby? I'm actually intrigued to see how we would perform on that line.

that would be one fast line damn, Kovy Parise Tedenby... but Teddy seems to be the only one making Clarkson score so i'd keep them together

Sykora has the flu? Sounds like Lou is making him sit out for last game's antics to me. Haha
