Um...

JJ for who? I like our 4th line (a lot) right now.

Tallinder for who? Harrold I guess?

Edit: Logistics aside, glad to hear they're getting healthy again. Especially with Tallinder, blood clots are scary.

I don't know if either play immediately, but if you're PDB it has to be nice knowing you don't have to put Janssen or Boulton (or Harrold!) up front, and even better knowing you now have 2 spare D-men.

As I said in other threads, I do not mess with the current lineup whatsoever. As they say, "IF IT AIN'T BROKE DON'T FIX IT!!"

No, you add a guy like Tallinder when he's ready. Yayo is another story, but I'd be happy swapping him in for Gionta if it came to it.

Josefson has much more offensive upside than Gionta, but Little Gio has had a great playoffs. He forechecks hard, is not afraid to use his 5'6" frame (and has even laid some people out), and is very fast. I don't think you can take him out at this point because that 4th line has been so effective (there is absolutely no way anyone would be saying that about our 4th line back in February).

Lets be real. If by some miracle Tallinder is ready to play he needs to be in. He's been arguably the best defenseman over the course of the season while healthy. Certainly, he is an upgrade over today's version of Larsson.

Josefson would be nice to have but with the way the 4th line is playing how much more can you squeeze out of it.

You add both when ready. Josefson is miles better then anyone on the 4th line and I love Bernier. Do people really underrate defensive ability this much.

i dont think we should add Josefson now he'd be way too rusty to jump in those games, if Tallinder is 100% healthy thats different he's a veteran who could help a lot on the back end.

but its good to know that if anything happen to our guys that we have good guys stepping in and not Boulton/Janssen

I think people are forgetting how good JJ was playing before he went down...if he's ready to go, he needs to be back in the lineup.

And Tallinder is a no brainer if he shows the rust is off.

I'm really happy Tallinder is going to play again, the Devils 6 D spot has played ok, but now it's going to play well. Tallinder is probably more happy that he didn't die.

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 think Josefson is better skill-wise than anyone on the fourth line but I'm not willing to mess up a fourth line after we finally have a good one for the first time in a long time. Each player on the 4th line has 4 points. Josefson wouldn't have been any better and would not have offered better D than Stephen Gionta has. That all said I would not be bothered if he does end up playing.

Can we change the 2nd line if the 4th is doing ok? I'd be fine with that.
