The #NJDevils have placed F Cam Janssen on waivers as per @DarrenDreger.

Hopefully we'll never ever see him again. ever.

Nobody is going to pick him up. That means they are making room though, or trying to.

Well hopefully it means that Lou knows they need more offense and don't need two goons. I guess Darche is getting a contract, but is either Henrique ready and/or Matteau is staying or something else.

Boychuk is on waivers? not sure what was wrong with him but i could totally see Lou go for a player like that. He's young, though, can play in all situation and can score.

I actually think Boychuk would be a great pickup

he never did anything at NHL levels yet but i'd certainly rather give a shot to a young guy with potential than on an old veteran who's gonna cover for a year.

You do know it's Zach Boychuk who is on waivers, right? He has 7 goals in 70+ NHL games.

He only 23 years old and is a former 14th overall pick. At the very least he could be a solid 3rd liner with a chance to grow

Still an upgrade over Janssen.

Boychuk is still young and a former 1st round pick

Lou LOVES ex 1st round fallen out of favor elsewhere reclamation projects

Holik, Rupp, Turner Stevenson, Tverdovsky, Zyuzin, Grant Marshall etc.

Not all work out, but he will always be looking to give guys with potential fresh starts in NJ

Barch beat out Cam for the Goon spot. Cam will go down to the AHL and be ready for the callup once Barch gets a cuncussion/broken hand. We were all crying about having 2 goons, but I think it's pretty clear now that these first 5 games were used as a pre-season competition period for who would stay up with the big club. Good job by Barch to win the spot. The fact that Barch makes useful contact with the puck on occassion is an instant upgrade over Cam.

he's not necessarily going down even with this though so who knows if it means anything. Boulton got waived and nothing came of it

Boulton wasn't on a two way deal, there's no reason not to send Cam down when he clears waivers.

yeah and eventhough he's 2 years older than Josefson he has similar stats and similar excuses, he must have played with some sh!t players while he was in carolina (i assume i dont know) and he has 32 points in 37 games in the AHL this season.

would be a great pickup im sure, we have room and need to try stuff

I'd love to see Boychuk on the Devils, he can learn the devils system and play well enough for a third line role. I can see it

This move has three implications, all of which are mildly interesting:

1. Matteau has made the team. Otherwise why put Janssen on waivers? You get a free roster spot that way.
2. The team likes what it's seen out of Anderson to at least keep him here until Henrique gets healthy - they could send him down to free up a spot.
3. Adam Larsson is staying on the team, come hell or high water - they're not sending him back to Albany to get a roster spot free.

Now they may do nothing with Janssen after waiving him - this is not uncommon, but at least with a 2 way contract they would get a discount with him playing in the AHL, and with Barch being capable of playing both LW and RW, they could go with him for 30 games, resting him on back to backs after a fight or the like. It implies that IF the Devils are going to make a roster move, it's going to be sending Janssen to the AHL as opposed to other things.

yeah and eventhough he's 2 years older than Josefson he has similar stats and similar excuses, he must have played with some sh!t players while he was in carolina (i assume i dont know) and he has 32 points in 37 games in the AHL this season.

Boychuk's problem is defense, and that his offense isn't good enough to make up for it. I doubt NJ will take him, but he's certainly more interesting than what usually gets put out there.

I hate to say it because i love Janssen, but Barch is just a better player. He went to the net last night and puck handled a little. And the team was actually willing to pass it to him, which no one ever does to janssen
