i hope matteau scores 10 goals in 5 games and is immediately returned to juniors. i do NOT want a wasted year of his potential for this season.


You could always keep him and hope he's not as good after the ELC's up as he would've been had he had the full 3 years starting next year, allowing you sign him before he more fully develops, saving you $ presumably. *Shrug* I have no idea

We apparently don't since TG says Tallinder/Larsson are probably sitting tomorrow instead. Awesome. (And Volchenkov's got a NTC)

Yeah it seems they will be healthy scratches tomorrow. I really don't get it. There needs to be a trade so bad. I don't know what Lou is waiting for.

Lou may just not like the offers he's getting, so he'll wait and see if another team suffers an injury or has a poor start and ups what the other team will offer.

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 just don't understand this. Tallinder is arguably the best defenseman on the team and Larsson has been playing, unlike...well, everyone else playing D.

I'm going to be pissed if Tallinder and Larsson end up sitting as healthy scratches tomorrow. I'd much rather see Volchenkov and Harrold out. I still don't understand why they waived Butler but hopefully there is some sort of move coming since the forward situation is downright dreadful.

I accept that I don't understand why Butler was waived. I'd also accept and understand it if Tallinder sits, because he has trade value and something might be coming down. But Larsson?!

Ya the only take I can get is that Lou is just going to hold his cards with the extra D and see what shakes out. If the Devils are winning he looks smart and maximizes his offer. They struggle it will be a bit more difficult.

Is having Matteau play a few NHL games this year really worth the possibility of losing Butler? They must really want him to play.

I'm not sure what Lou is doing here. With Tedenby going down to Albany, I would hope that at least 2 of the following 4 things happen ASAP:

1. Sign Gomez
2. Sign Sykora
3. Trade for a top 6 forward with a D-centered package
4. Tedenby comes back up after Butler clears or is claimed.

TG said that Tallinder-Larsson looks to be the D pair to sit tomorrow, which doesn't really make much sense to me. And honestly, I don't know why anybody would want to start the season with this problem.


This is either A. Trade in the works and Larsson is just sitting because they couldn't fit another RH in or B. They're sitting their guys they have a good read on right now so they can see some of our lesser pieces handle gameplay against a team like the Isles. See if they can handle them before throwing them to the sharks on Tuesday.

not to be negative here... but a guy that Ottawa didnt want for wtv reasons and decided to give up on goes on waivers and no one else is picking him up. And bunch of people here are expecting him to fill one of our top 6 need? after Lou said he wasnt even ready, he's 25... i think some people here are pumping his tires a bit too much an are wearing NJ blinders.

we fvcking need to make a trade or something we simply can't go for the whole season like this especially not in our division

Any reason you're choosing the Sharks for a trade?

Butler is a classic example of a player who can fill an offensive need but the rest of his game may not be NHL grade. There are players like Matt Moulson who crush the minors but for whatever reason teams don't think he's good enough, and then sometimes they become good enough.

As for Matteau's ELC, I am less concerned with him being cheap since he doesn't have a super-high upside. I am concerned that he is a sub-replacement player though.

Cam Janssen is starting on our "3rd line".

Kovalchuk is going to have to carry more water than Gunga Din this year for te Devils to have any offense.

Janssen must havce something on Lou

I don't think Kovy will produce at a greater rate than he did last season. Devils need to make up 30 goals in 48 games
