what do you think will likely happen to open room for the kids ? buying out A-Train is the most logical one to me. Not re-signing Harrold seems sad to me i kinda like him but i think he was some kind of stopgap for Urbom or Gelinas.

 

I'm not sure if they are willing to eat 8M+ on Volchenkov yet.  That's really up to Vanderbeek (and Lou, I suppose).  I also don't know what they'll do with Zidlicky, but I sure hope if he does stay that he only gets a 1 year deal.  Someone else will give him 2 years.  I also think there's not much chance Tallinder is here next year, much as I like him, and as much as he is better than Salvador, he seems to be the odd man out.  

 

So I could see next year's D being something like


Salvador (heavy sigh)-Fayne

Greene-Larsson

Merrill-Harrold

 

But really the possibilities are endless.  I think people think that two of Fayne/Volchenkov/Harrold/Zidlicky/Tallinder won't be here but I am not fully convinced of this.

Yeah, I think Merrill among the young D is the most likely to win an NHL roster spot.

 

fiesty: I only saw this on Twitter, but Seattle tied game 7 with 7 seconds left.  What a series.

It was an unreal ending to regulation, especially since the radio announcer mentioned that Seattle could've been called for a penalty right before it and before that they apparently illegally impeded Kelowna from scoring on the open net...but that could've been homerism. For selfish reasons I was hoping Kelowna was going to hold on in regulation since Severson then would've finished a +2 with his assist being on the GWG. Still I'm just happy they found a way to pull it out. They essentially played game 7 with 4 defensemen due to injuries with one of the centers taking the odd shift on the blue line. I wish the WHL logged ice time because Severson has had a ton of it this year and it sounds like even more in the playoffs. Really excited about him.

The Devils will be fine in the future and will be built like Nashville and Phoenix, except we have better offensive players, but worse goaltending. We have a BIG and mobile defense. Larsson, Fayne, Merrill, Gelinas, Urbom and Severson are all 6 '3 or bigger. Then you have smaller guys like Scarlett and Burlon who could impress. 

Aside from Matteau Jr and Boucher, I dont think we have many NHL caliber offensive prospects. Even then, Boucher is very much a boom or bust type and Matteau may not have the highest ceiling. JJ, Henrique, Loktionov (thank God we picked him up!) and Matteau are the only young shoe ins who will be around in 3 years. I obviously want to make the playoffs, but if we missed and picked top 10 and stole a guy like Mackinnon, Drouin, Shinkaruk, Lindholm, Barkov, Domi, Monahan or Nichuskin, I'd be flippin' ecstatic. Luckily, a lot of teams need help on the blue line, so Jones, Nurse and Ristolainen could be taken earlier than anticipated. Even if we pick 12th, I'd like to see Lou be aggressive and move down a couple of spots to pursue one of the aforementioned prospects

Not to get excited but reid boucher has 18 shots in 6 career ahl games along with 70-75 snap shot. He maybe better than Buttler already at 19.

Matteau looks like he has been much more productive in the qmjhl after playing here for a bit. Stats back that up or am I imagining this?

Tuesday 4/9
QMJHL Quaterfinals
#3 Blainville-Boisbriand defeated #10 Val-d'Or 5-0 (Lead Series 3-0)
Stefan Matteau LW: Goal, +1, 2 PIM (Hooking), 2 Shots, 1/4 Faceoffs, 2 Hits

OHL Western Conference Semifinals
#3 Owen Sound lost to #2 Plymouth 6-3 (Trail Series 2-1)
Artur Gavrus C: 2 Assists (Both PP), -1 (Minus came on ENG)

 

WHL Western Conference Semifinals
#2 Kelowna lost to #3 Kamloops 5-4 (OT) (Trail Series 3-0)
Damon Severson D: E, 2 PIM (Hooking)

 

I think the injuries and battling in the 1st round has essentially wiped out Kelowna. Perhaps they avoid a sweep but I don't think they'll come back from 3-0 against a team like Kamloops.

well just by looking at Matteau's numbers as of late, you can see he really does seem to be playing well.

Feisty, good work! I've neve paid much attention to the prospect thread till now but it's great to see how our guys are doing

I also appreciate Fiesty's efforts. I look forward to updates. I would like to see Albany in playoffs, but it's becoming unlikely.

to me its really a sign of the organization trying to see what they have on D and see if they can affords trades / buyouts and if we'll still be okay. My guess.

I wouldn't be surprised if Severson only gets in one game.  I don't think it has anything to do with buyouts, it's just that NJ likes to let players get a peek at the next level.  I'm a little surprised Scarlett isn't going, though.
