You know, Boulton isn't that bad. He's not good either, but he can at least play hockey.

...because they're not?
Like TG mentioned last night, this is the second trade this season where the Devil's added payroll.

Anyway, the Post is so weird. (N)Єverson comes up with Lou quotes that nobody else has, along with the seemingly obligatory Post style snark: http://www.nypost.co...C-rss&FEEDNAME=

Also, just in via twitter, TG and Chere are saying that Poni made it here and is likely today.


Man that article is awful! And you're absolutely correct, where does he get those quotes that nobody else has? How do people make money by fabricating BS?

The NY Post makes all of it's money with Page Six, so... :noclue:

Well, he wasn't able to get involved with the puck all that much in his first Devils period but I appreciate the effort on the forecheck so far. He must be tired after playing last night, but I suppose you have adrenaline to get through that for your first game on a new team.

We made a decent trade. He's not a top 6 player anymore but he fills the bottom 6 perfectly.

at first i was like eh, but when you think about it, Poni is a solid player. Numbers lie because he could've probably been doing WAY better the last few years if he had any decent talent to play with, but alas. New coach, new team, new fit, different play. This aint a bad deal at all, but we'll see.

he had a great game, one goal, couple of monster checks. i am impressed with him, some carolina fans were saying penalty man etc. but i'm guessing that's because of the style of canes, he seems to fit right in with our system. i doubt he had an idea of what to do out there but he looked like he has played more time here than some of our 4th liners.

He certainly had an impressive game... I think he's a good fit with Clarkson and Josefson. I like that line holding up until we get Zajac back. If he brings what he brought in that last game every night then we got a good deal.

Maybe I just like him cause he's the same exact size as me, lol.

Sucks for Tedenby, but it just wasn't happening for him this year. Some AHL time for him will do him well

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

Terrific trade for NJ. We managed to get a player able to dominate possession against 2nd and 3rd lines. With Josefson and Clarkson they should create an underrated but excellent 3rd line who should be around 55% in the right situations. Ponikarovsky and Josefson should create a lot for Clarkson off the cycle if he just stays in front.

Any stat geeks, try not to get too excited. Especially since we cleared a reserve list spot.

Even better is on ice sh% when tied...It is 0.8%, this trade is gold when this career 10% shooter evens out the stats.

Ponikarovsky was playing with top offensive players when he was posting those kinds of numbers with Toronto. I don't expect that kind of s% here. Still, it makes the third line into a force (55% is high, but I'd take 50% at this point).
