I can't believe that no one brought up Boychuk. I thought he looked pretty good. Since Lou is always bargain shopping, I think it would have been a decent pickup.

Edit: I thought I was in the game day topic, oh well.

Butler needs to be with either Kovy or Elias or else he'll be useless.

I see him playing with Kovy (LW) because Kovy can cut in the middle of the offensive zone and give him these deadly passes and he got some nice hands too so he would probably be able to score a couple this way.

However, this team is going to need more than Bobby Butler or anything we got withing the organisation right now. Truth is we need a top 6 forward and unless Buttler surprises us with amazing performances, he will not be enough.

I think I'd like to see something like

Kovy-JJ-Zubrus
Elias-Zajac-Butler
Darche/Matteau-Henrique-Clarkson
Carter-Gionta-Benrier

Without Henrique getting top 6 minutes, this team goes nowhere.

That will happen once he gets a few games under his belt. He was out for 2 month prior to the 1/31 game and hadn't even gone thru a full practice prior to playing in the game.

I think he should help, maybe if we sign Darche CBGB can finally become the 4th line again

Zubrus - Zajac/Henrique - Kovalchuk
Elias - Zajac/Henrique - Clarkson
Darche - Josefson - Butler
Carter - Gionta - Bernier

Getting the goons out of the lineup should do a world of good.


I agree with this. As much as I love the CBGB line, they're a 4th line, not a third. We've been playing the whole season so far with a 4th and a 5th line but no third.

I read on Fire and Ice that Lou works in 10 game windows. I think we see changes after 10 games. No point in making a trade if you don't know what you have or what you need. I think Butler is the last "try out" if you will. Then we see a move.

I'm not sure, but I think PIT were ahead of NJ in in the waiver order?

Edit: ah, yes.

If more than one team makes a claim, then the player will be transferred to the team having the lowest percentage of possible points in league standings at the time of the request for waivers.


At the time PIT had played 1 more game and had 1 fewer point, so their claim would've gone before ours anyways.

We saw in the playoffs that in order for our system to work right we need 4 good forward lines to keep the puck out of our own zone. Right now this team needs to pick up 1 or 2 wingers, and in my opinion one of then needs to be a first or second line guy. We need someone to get kovy going. He really has looked bad these last 3 games and his line isnt clicking at all. If we are going to make the playoffs he needs to be the kovy from last year.

I think butler may be a good addition but leading up to the season I was saying out butler with Ilya, kovy will compliment his play style really well. Now I'm feeling that we need someone to compliment kovy's play style

I see everyone is including Darche in their wishlist lines. Is there any news on him or are things still "status quo"?

Status quo. He gets "weekly updates" from Lou.

I dont see Butler doing anything productive on that fourth line. Hopefully he will work well on the PP unit.

It's obvious that they are holding training camp during the first 20 games or so of this season. So Butler is now getting his tryout now, along with Barch. The D is having their tryout as well. If Butler isn't great(Bernier solidified his spot tonight) then Lou may sign Darche. Darche will have his go, and if all else fails then, I would expect to see Matteau back, as I really don't think Lou cares about the contract situation. I can see Tallinder being the odd D out and being moved near the deadline. (maybe a late first round pick from a team that will finish well) The versatile Harrold will be the 7th D man.( I wonder if he ever donned the pads?)

Darche is a pretty good skater and I see them hoping on Poni like results if he come aboard.

Man, it must be fun to be a NHL GM.

We wouldn't have known anyways, would we? I've only ever read "Team X claims player from waivers", never "Team Y also placed claim".

That's a stupid question. Everyone knows that, sometimes when Chuck Norris goes Ice skating, the Ice slips and falls on Chuck Norris.

I doubt their looking for Poni like results. Darche never score the way Poni did earlier in his career. I think the best we get out of Darche is a 4th liner who can be A. Not retarded and B. Occasionally put up a couple points. I mean, the guy has a career high of 22pts with TB and he's only appeared in 250 games, so he's no veteran of the NHL. Poni put up 61 points a few years back in Toronto, so Darche will definitely not be a Poni like acquisition. Like I said, he's probably better than the crap we got on the 4th line Jojo excluded, so that's an improvement, but I don't see him being anything beyond what Rob Niedermayer was for us.
