Oh, he's hardly untradable. Like Triumph said though (in a round about way), I don't think he has any real value.

Lou won't trade someone who could become the next Mats Naslund



Mats Naslund had 26 goals and 71 points in his first full season in the NHL.

Tedenby has 1 goal (off his chest) and 5 points in his first full season.

Comparing Tedenby to Mats Naslund is a gigantic stretch. The only thing they have in common is that they are both small.

perhaps the biggest wrong in that statement is that Mattias Tedenby will never be Mats Naslund. the both of them are waay different from another.

and now to what I was gonna say. I think it's probably for the best that Tedenby be done for the season. He's already a minus fifteen and we have somebody better in the form of Steven zalewski. If you saw his performance against Boston (y'know, before they got pummeled) he was doing pretty well. I didn't see him make too many mistakes out there. What Tedenby needs is to get back into the minors and get his game back. He's got potential, but it's just not there yet.

1 goal and 5 assists in 43 games is just simply not enough. It should have happened sooner quite honestly.

You should look at Naslund game from back in the day and tell me they aren't similar.

Also pretty foolish of you to compare statistics from the 1980's to today.

...yea, and no. I'm glad that he was allowed the opportunity to fail.
I wish that he hadn't failed.

He'll certainly never be Matts Naslund, but I do think that the potential is there. I just love the way that he never gives up out there on the ice. It's easy to understand why he's turned into a fan favorite, despite the lack of production.

You know Mats Naslund is the guy that played for the Canadiens and not the guy who was on the Rangers for the twilight of his career.

I understand the "using stats from the 80's" thing completely, but...
Other than their size, I just don't see many similarities between Tedenby and Naslund.
I mean... from what I can remember, Naslund was a decent sniper. He played pretty good positional hockey (especially in a more rough and tumble era) and had an excellent shot. Tedenby, on the other hand... maybe it's the way he was being used, but his style of play is completely different. He works hard, digs in the corners, and hangs around the net. With his size, I think that's actually part of the problems that he's having. I give him tons of credit for trying to play that style, and being pretty good at it actually, but he just doesn't have the size for that game.

And it is very foolish if you comparing one of the best Swedish snipers of all time to tedenby.

They are both small and fast and Dan handle the puck well, so yes their style is similar but that is where it ends. Naslund could actually score without it having to go off his body.

Worse comparison of two players I have heard in quite some time and a huge insult to naslund.

I don't see who's giving up a lot for him. The Devils don't have a winger behind him in the system, at all. It's Tedenby, Palmieri, and basically nothing. David Wohlberg. Mike Hoeffel. Unless he's included in a trade for a young-ish winger in a similar spot, I don't see any advantage of moving him - if he dies on the vine here, so be it.


Have to agree with this. Devils forward depth and overall quality is lacking in the system with some age showing up on the wings.

I think it's highly likely that the Devils draft a winger in this year's draft unless they see a stud defenseman drop they can't pass up. Devils have guys like Zubrus, Elias, Sykora who are all in either approaching or in their mid 30s. This is also irrespective of the Parise situation this offseason.

Check out Teddy goals last year and tell me he can't score. He is 22 years old and deserves the benefit of the doubt Elias didn't exactly tear it up at first when he was called up here.

He would score a goal and then disappear for the next three to four games. Elias also improved with each year and could play both sides of the ice. There is a reason why three coaches have bounced him around the lower two lines.

I swear I have never seen so much love from fans over a player who played a solid 10, maybe 15 games a year ago.

It's all the effort that he obviously gives that people love. I love it as well, I admit it.
Unfortunately, he just doesn't have the skills yet.

Small guy like teddy needs to be a sniper at the NHL level. He's a top 6 guy or he's in the minors. There's really no place in between for a guy of his stature.

Tedenby was on the second line for a couple games and got nothing going.

It is not his linemates

Kovy, Parise and Henrique were together for sometime before they started gelling. I am still very high on Teddy, maybe he is having a horrible sophomore slump, but I sure hope to see him up here playing good minutes.

That's not really surprising, though. The kid has talent, he's just not finding a way to use it at the NHL level.
I fully expect him to tear up the AHL.

Even when the henrique line was not gelling, they were getting some production . Tendency has had no production save a few assists and a goal that went off his chest
