Zajac is not ready to be a top 6 forward and should be kept away from that role until he gets his speed and timing back. Just putting him with Parise doesn't fix that. So to that end, I have no idea what the lines should be.


Tri - assuming that josefson is ready to play on 1/17, you don't think zajac will be in a position to be a top 6?

It would just be plain dumb to break up our top line right now, right when they're actually starting to get going.

Right now he's not playing well enough. I mean, I don't believe in 'top 6', but I guess what I mean is that he shouldn't be playing with Parise.

Josefson on the 4th line for 2 weeks would be ideal situation at this point. By February 1st you have an idea where Zajac and Josefson fit in terms of health and hopefully Tedenby starts scoring by then. Tedenby and Josefson playing well ensures that our 4th line will not suck.

too bad that he basically stays on the left side of the ice as much as possible anyway.


He did for a while there, but he hasn't really been doing that the last few games.
well, except on the power play, where he's supposed to be doing that.

Also, some of what you guys (it's not even close to the first time that I've see this complaint) are seeing is an actual play. DeBoer is telling them to overload one side of the ice, then they set up the triangle in the corner. Tedenby-Zajac-Clarkson do that a lot as well.

In the offensive zone I don't care - what I am talking about is on defensive zone exits and offensive zone entries. He is straying over to the left as much as possible.

I'm just glad to see him in the defensive zone at all. That's progress, right there.

I think this is what I'd like to see:
Parise-Zajac-Tedenby
Zubrus-Elias-Sykora
Kovy-Josefson-Henrique
Zharkov-Carter-Clarkson

Boulton/Janssen extras ... or trade for a good playmaker RW or sign Bernier for the kovy line and keep this kind of setup
Parise-Zajac-Henrique
Zubrus Line
Kovy-Josefson-(Traded Player or Bernier)
Tedenby-Carter-Clarkson

Its more about rolling four offensive lines rather ... if devils want to have an energy line, then send Teddy down and move Clarkie up?? ...

sorry but if you really meant to suggest we add tedenby to the first line, and it actually happens, then i dont know what to say. not only do you break Henrique and Parise up, but you add a guy who has completely underachived and cant play defense to the 1st line.

Sorry, i like Tedenby's game, trust me. He is one of the better skaters i have seen. BUT he is so small and unfortunately, he hasn't necessarily impressed this year. You cant just throw him on that line especially when you are taking away the best pairing our lines have seen this year. no way.

Henrique has one point in 3 games. Parise and Kovy have 2 goals in 7 games. The time might be coming to break this line up. When Josefson around the corner, if this line doesn't catch fire again, it would be a good time to break it up.

Parise-Zajac-Kovalchuk
Elias-Henrique-Sykora
Zubrus-Josefson-Clarkson
Zharkov-Carter-Janssen/Boulton

Sent Sestito down, scratch Tedenby.

I am also a fan of signing Bernier.

If (and it's a mighty big if) Parise-Henrique-Kovalchuk is broken up, I'd prefer to see something like:

Parise - Zajac - Clarkson
Tedenby - Henrique - Kovalchuk
Sykora - Elias - Zubrus

Sestito could even be swapped with Tedenby... or Bolton, for that matter.
Actually, putting Elias with him would be best, but it'd be tough to break up Elias and Sykora.

Bernier isn't getting signed though. Not unless we have a rash of injuries, anyway. You've gotta realize that nobody has any confidence in the guy any more. There's a reason that Florida bought him out, and that nobody else has resigned him. He's playing with a minor league contract now.

He should be able to get plenty of skating time in with Albany, and all kinds of coaching attention.

Conditioning stint, this is just to get his game legs back. He will be back in the NHL very soon.
