If Henrique is traded right now for anyone other than a bona fide #1 center I'll be calling for Lou's head.

(Packaged for said center, obviously)

yo pick him back up, if we can for cheap. obviously we're not thick at RW, it couldn't hurt

i know the kid didn't put great numbers up last year but he's still young, eh?

Four teams have given up on him in the last year, including Atlanta and Florida. There's got to be a reason that he keeps getting bounced around. I'm just guessing, but he must have attitude problems or something.

I think we probably traded him at the peak of his worth, before people figured it out that he might not be all that good.

That said, I wouldn't mind picking him up, putting him in the AHL, and letting him try to make the team again. It's true our RW depth isn't all that great. If we could ship a guy like Palmieri out in a Turris package (who also may turn out to stink--i think this will be the case), getting another RW in the depth chart would make sense. He probably wouldn't make the club at all this year, but you never know what the team will look like next year, depending on potential trades, Parise's status, etc.

Are there any dyslexic GMs in the league? They might give him a shot, thinking they're signing Forsberg.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Ryan Carter - 0.476
David Clarkson - 0.486
Mattias Tedenby - 0.500

Tedenby with one or two adjustments in his own end will be ready for 2nd line role. Adjustments take time, maybe by seasons end.

Honestly the Devils could use a speedy and talented right winger. He's still young and has the potential... we have enough Swedes to make him feel at home. I say go for it.

He's cleared waivers. I for one am thankful this Thanksgiving that Lou didn't attempt to shoe-horn him back onto our roster.

While NJ could use a right wing, Bergfors's problem apparently isn't his talent but his work ethic and attention to detail. It's not worth using the 50th spot on the reserve list for that.

I saw a glimpse of a Brian Gionta type player in Tedenby late last year....but he has seemed to regress this season (and Palmieri too) I hope they start putting the biscuit in the basket if you know what I'm sayin.


You see Gionta in Tedenby??? Gionta is much more of a gritty, get in the dirty areas to get goals, more hard work than talent type player. Tedenby is a way more naturally gifted player than Gionta is or was and will score more goals with his skill than he will by taking slapshots from further out or by standing in front of the net like Gionta has done to score the goals he has.

Blake Comeau is a guy I wouldn't mind taking a risk on if we weren't at 49 on the reserve list. He played fairly tough minutes last year (Zstart for the most part). Islanders are a bad team, a change of environment may do him well.

I wouldn't take him on waivers, but I would trade Pelley and a low round pick for him.
