I still can't believe Volchenkov got 3 games for that. He extended his elbow maybe a tiny inch and just grazed him. Doubt it was any intent. Boychuk more ran into him


Have you ever seen something in the history of hockey that you thought was suspension worthy? I'm asking because you never think anyone should be suspended, ever.

BTW - that was Ryan Carter punching Volchenkov after the hit, right?

I've always loved Cam's attitude and everything-it-takes approach. That kind of heart on a player with skill would be perfect. Sadly, there's just no spot for him when there are goons out there that can also play the puck. We all know Lou loves him (he was supposedly choked up when he gave him up for Salvador a few years back), but I think even Lou realizes there's no room for 2 goons on the team this year when scoring is so desperately needed.

Or we could just resume those whole point to...

1- Janssen is absolutely useless and the spot he's leaving will be fill by someone better, 100% guarantee

i still say Boychuck would be a good claim we have cap space and absolutely nothing to lose. His defence could become way better playing here.


Even so, the Devils didn't do this last year (knowing full well that Janssen was still awful then) and carried a bunch of garbage on their roster for weeks. They waived Boulton late in the season before rosters expanded.

Boychuk is intriguing, but I don't think NJ will claim him. I don't care about cap space - everyone has that - I care about what his role would be. Right now NJ hasn't shown a willingness to break up the Carter-Gionta-Bernier unit (except late in games). Unless they'd stick him immediately with Zajac and Kovalchuk, I don't see the spot for him. The Devils already have a similar player in Bobby Butler.

I feel there is nothing to lose by claiming Boychuk.

In general, players with the first name Zach and surname ending with chuk, haven't been bad for us.

Kind of funny that two of Boychuks top youtube highlights are him getting crushed by Devils.

1.) Elbowed by A-Train (3 game suspension)

https://www.youtube....h?v=5GUlCQwLpGc

2.) Drilled by Corrente..ahhh Corrente

https://www.youtube....h?v=5BzK6O287m4

Haha also funny that I was the 1st viewer on that second video.


Lol @ the Chico hate on that first video

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

Not saying I don't agree with the move, but are you guys ready to crown Barch King of Goons after one good shift? His fight didn't really open my eyes, he got into a bad position then the refs just let it go on a century too long.

He actually has hockey sense. He made many nice passes back to the defense instead of turning the puck over in the neutral zone. He was cycling, backing up defensemen, screening the goalie, and just looked good out there. Janssen doesnt do anything.

Barch has some skill. He has enough sense to regroup the puck back to D and he skates way better than Jansen. And it is funny thst it seems the guys are willing to throw the puck his way.

Now hopefully this means Darche is signing or there's a trade on the way since Matteau made the team (which I'm shocked about, quite frankly). I never want to see Cam Janssen play another game for the franchise. I love the guy, but he can't play. Enough is enough.

BTW, Matteau didn't make the team. He just didn't not make the team.... yet.

My guess is that he'll sit the next couple of games and see how the team does without him.

I'll miss him. The guy was full of energy and wore his heart on his sleeve -- certainly a fan favorite. I'll never forget that 5 minute bout he had with PL3 when he played for the Blues. Best of luck Cammer.

But Butler didn't make the team. I assume there was some reason, since there was certainly a spot for him. Boychuk will be cheap, we clearly need at least 1 more forward, so why not?

Boychuk will probably go on to be a 30 goal scorer playing on Crosby's wing.
