DeSimone is a guy I thought was intriguing coming out of New Hampshire. This guy won't blow the doors off but he should be a suitable AHL pro. Albany right now looks like this:

Wiseman-Zalewski-Anderson
Pesonen-Whitney-Sislo
Wohlberg-Sestito-D. Zajac
Hoeffel-K. Zajac-Carrier

ex: DeSimone

Gelinas-Urbom
Leach-Corrente
Burlon-Kelly

ex: Young

Frazee
Kinkaid

Am I the only one who would like to, just for the hell of it (not coz we have to coz that'd be scary), see them call up the remaining Zajacs and form an all-Zajac line, that we could then call ZajacCity, and sing about it to the tune of Rack City by Tyga?

...I am?

Very well, carry on then.

DeSimone won't be an extra center, 14 goals in his first pro season is pretty good. He should finish 3rd line center by seasons end. The Devils should have a very good defensive team from what I can see. Good goaltending and very solid defense.

At least Lou didn't make a reactionary signing (or two) after Parise left like he did after Nieds' departure.

You'd certainly hope he would, yeah. Glad he did. I'm praying the Devils don't sign Doan to that 5 year/30m deal that's rumored.

Erm..but I guess that's for the other thread, eh

He is also 25, though, that's a pretty rotten debut year. I guess they haven't yet signed Whitney. I do think the team will be better, it still lacks top end scoring, but it should contend for the playoffs.

Maybe Reid Boucher surprises at camp and earns a contract but that didn't seem to work for D'Amigo and Maple Leafs. We could certainly use some offensive players at that level.

Oh wow, I totally forgot about Reid Boucher. I thought he was already signed to a contract but apparently not. But I doubt if he went to Albany that he would contribute much this year.

Of course training camp could change things but Sarnia's Assistant GM tweeted that he expects Boucher to be back in Sarnia for one more year. Hopefully he can improve on his consistency and defensive play.

Funny, I could see him getting 16 goals 14 assists as a 19 year old based on his shot alone. He could be a -30 as well though.

Curious about MacIsaac's thoughts on this guy, I think he was in Cape Breton this year?

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.
