Why would the Devils needed a 4th guy to play 7th defenseman on the team? The Devils had/have oodles of them.

Stralman is so good he's barely playing in the NHL, that's not going to come back to haunt anyone.

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.

i dont need to know you very well your arrogant attack and attitude on me the other evening filled me in quite nicely. youre a piece of work.


sorry i didn't shrink this down to avatar size for you, but i think this would be good:

i never said he was a pivotal player and never compared him to zidlicky. i said stralman would have made a nice back pairing 7th defenseman for the devils and adding zidlicky to the mix would have been enough NHL caliber depth. stralman has fit in nicely as a ranger this postseason anyone who covers or watches the rangers sees that but you. he doesnt need to be pivotal on a d corps that has 3 horses on it. 3 horses that tortorella rides to death as he does with top players.


your article from the times called him a pivotal player in the headline. i don't think stralman would have signed here to be a 7th defenseman, and if he had a sense that's what he was getting into, it would've been stupid for him to be here. he's clearly an NHL quality defenseman who can work a power play. he's better than kurtis foster 5 on 5, that is pretty obvious, but kurtis foster is probably better on the power play. i don't think he's better than peter harrold - the two are about even.

stralman has been okay, not great, and hasn't given tortorella any confidence at all that he can be used in key situations. the devils should have 0 regrets about not signing him.

Regardless of eventual outcome, I think the Caps pushing the series to 7 really helped the Devils, in the sense that those nursing injury (especially Zids) can heal up for the 3rd round. PDB will keep them ready. Even if they have a flat 1st period, they'll turn it around.

I did enjoy Flyer fans using the 'our team is rusty' excuse all the way up until Game 3. I don't anticipate this being a problem.

Especially if it's the Rangers. They will be so amped to take them down that they'll come out like they're wearing jetpacks.

You do see your contradiction there right?

Plus, not to be immature or anything but you kinda were the first one to make this personal in this thread.

lmao, they were rusty for one period.

I think the Devils other than Marty (who doesn't like long layoffs) will benefit more from getting healthy than be harmed by having a few days off. And Marty hasn't been that great in the postseason anyway, though he was better against the Flyers than he was against the Panthers - after he started that series with a week layoff.

I don't think it's that. I think it's just that some of Lou's moves since the lockout have not panned out like asham, mcgillis, mogilny, rachunek, vishnevski, rolston, havalid, skoula, Janssen, boulton, etc..

I didn't love the Zidlicky deal at the time mainly because of the extra year at $4 million. But, yes I was absolutely wrong on that one.

Lou's biggest failing since the lock out has been free agency. His trades have mainly been net winners, others like Havelaid or Skoula were meh in that nothing of an value went the other way and it wasn't like they were filling up a roster sport for anyone good.

Zidlicky wanted to come play here.
Good pickup by LL.
Hopefully he'll re-sign for 2-3 years after next season.
