i dont know what is going on and im confused... maybe we sign gomez.... acquire jamie benn or bobby ryan... or nothing at all lol

PS: if we acquire ryan or benn i dont have a word to say :P

Last scenario is that he could be the kind of player who cant play in the NHL on a daily basis (he can score but if he cant play both side of the ice Deboer will not take him)

This is really annoying and confusing. Butler seemed like a lock to not only make the team but play in the top 6. Bleh.

Lou HAS to have something up his sleeve, no?

When did Bernier become so horrible all the sudden to the point that you don't even think he should make the team? Or is this the latest contrarian streak?


Bernier is barely a 4th line player - I recognize why he is here, but unless there is a trade/signing coming, this move suggests that Bernier will start the season as the 3rd line RW, which is simply inexcusable.

They can keep Butler and Matteau on the roster and hope that Darche sticks around without a contract until they're ready to send Matteau back to juniors.

Well we'd have to sign Darche first for that to be the case. Maybe Lou is finishing up a contract with him.

i read they were talking today so it's possible

TG is thinking like me.

My guess is Devils want to sign Darche/keep Matteau and can't do both and keep Butler and carry 8 D (with Janssen and Barch on roster too).

i'd waive and buy out the sh!t out of Barch, why did we signed that godamn useless piece of sh!t anyway ? Lou didnt learned from last year when Janssen and Boulton didnt play a single second of playoffs

This is just a situation where we have to wait and see, too many variables. For all we know Lou is asking Darche to give the Devils the hang around Albelin treatment in the hopes of a future slot.

Enough to fill out the bottom two lines plus extra goons?

Maybe he didn't show enough defensive responsibility and Tedenby beat him out. If this is the only move, I see some potential PP time for Tedenby. Even though they play opposite wings they were competing for one spot in my mind. That spot being last years Sykora's PP specialist/defensively unrelaible spot. Put that player with Elias and let him cover up for the defensive shortcomings.

Darche is not a plug and does not belong in that conversation.

TG speculates they want to keep Darche AND Matteau but can't keep both along with Butler and 8 defensemen on the roster.

Of course, this would be a lot easier if we didn't carry two goons or weren't carrying 8 defensemen...

Mathieu Darche est toujours avec les Devils, mais sans contrat. Il va continuer de s'entraƮner avec les Devils au cours des prochains jours.

its saying that Darche is still in NJ without contract but that he will continue to practice with them for a few days

Re-counting the forwards, it would still be impossible to keep Matteau and sign Darche without sending someone down in addition to Butler.

With Lou, you never know... But I think he may have a defensemen-for-forward deal lined up.

As the Devils have showed time and time again, guys like Carter and Clarkson can handle themselves. Pretty much everyone can handle themselves. You keep wanting to have fake fights than Janssen is your man. The guy hasn't been in a real spur of the moment fight as a Devil ever. So we'll keep him on the roster playing 3 awful minutes every 2nd night for it. But Janssen can't play. He isn't even good at fighting. So we'll bring in another guy who also sucks, but can stay on the ice just a bit longer without totally being awful, yet still being awful. in Krys Barch.

And we'll give them all 2-year deals. Always. Everytime.
