A) They're not putting Zharkov in there, that's obvious at this point. It's probably going to be Cam-Boulton or other trash like junior Gio.
B) You're not beating good teams with only three lines and running Kovy-Zach out there 25 minutes a night because they have to waste five of those minutes double-shifting with the fourth line.

Not sure who said it, but I'm in.favor of corrente. He can play forward or defense, he'd bring a physical game, had nhl experience and vw has some skill.

Hate to say it but we are going to have to do that if they put Cam or Bolts in there. At this point the fourth line is going to have what, 6 mins out there, maybe?

I woud love to see Zharkov's speed out there, but it doesn't look like they are going to.

Corrente should have been converted to forward permanently, he looked a lot better there than on defense at the NHL level.

Even if Corrente was converted he would be low on the totem pole - he's missed more than half the season with injuries. Its too bad they don't give Zharkov a shot.

He's a lefty.
Never gonna happen because people know about the injury and will aim for it, also he's 21 and I'm sure the Devils don't want to risk further injury.
4-6 weeks aka done until 2013.

That's a bit of a stretch. It's only April.

And no one said that Carter can't play center. It's a matter of who replaces Carter on LW. I just can't figure out why it has to be Gionta.

Can always count on this dude to overdramatize.
Hey SMT3 maybe his career is over too?
