What about Wohlberg. He's a older rookie and a center. Lou's kind of guy.

That's an intriguing idea, but I can't see it.

Wohlberg isn't under contract this year. Can't be done.

Too bad, a 4 yr college player was very tempting to me.

It had to be Zharkov...right? I mean Lou knows what he'll get from him which is more than anything anyone else will bring if they're called up.

Don't need offense. Just a guy who plays sound defensively, can skate and can cycle.

Fuuuuck this sucks.. That poor guy, it has to be so frustrating- because it sure is from a fan's point of view.

I don't know what I would like te lines to be, it pains me to see Henrique on the 4th line but I guess maybethat's what we have to do

I feel absolutely terrible for Josefson. 2 seasons in the league and he's suffered 3 big injuries. Its almost like Josefson's career hasn't had a chance to start. More than production next season, I just want him to stay healthy.

In terms of the line up, it really sucks to lose the decent 4th line they finally had. Obviously I wish Zharkov would get the call up but I know that there is no way in hell that is happening. I don't want Boulton or Janssen playing in the playoffs and the only call up I could see them making that wouldn't be that bad would be Zalewski.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

If I'm the Devils, I almost start planning my future as though Josefson's not going to be a part of it...which obviously sucks, as he's shown some promise, but for whatever the reasons, some guys just seem injury-prone. Not saying he can't contribute, and who knows, maybe after these three freak injuries he'll find his health, but I sure as hell wouldn't count on it.

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.

It's one thing if you do stupid things like Taylor Hall, but like you say these have been truly freak injuries.

Unfortunately, I'm feeling the same way. It's a killer too 'cause the kid's got talent.

I almost wanna see him spend a full year in Albany. His skill level isn't below NHL standards, but his ability to handle the physicality of the North American game is very much below NHL standards. Give him a whole year against mostly younger, smaller opponents. Hopefully it'll allow him to actually get a full healthy season under his belt and add some bulk to his frame before rejoining the big club in 2013-14.

This injury sucks for JJ and the team. However, I wouldn't touch the top 3 lines and don't think they should take Henrique off the 3rd to center the fourth. The fourth line doesn't play enough minutes to justify that kind of move, especially in the playoffs.

I would like to see Zharkov up here, but that probably isn't going to happen. Putting Tedenby on the 4th is pointless because he can't produce without skilled players around him. Unfortunately, I think we will see a little bit of Boulton and alot of Kovy double shifting in the playoffs.

Except his contract runs out next year, not in 2026, and he gets paid less then $1 million/year to be on the IR, not over $4 million. Nonetheless, this injury hurts our depth for the playoffs, big time.

I don't believe you can relegate Henrique to the 4th line.
Also, I wouldn't mind seeing Tao brought up and used on wing or even Corrente for that matter. It provides a serviceable player on the 4th line and gives flexibility in the playoffs for carrying extra D if needed. I think Pete D plans on doubling Zach more anyway.
