Someone's got their panties in a bunch.

And btw. Lil' Gio is in no way, shape or form comparable to Teddy except their similar height. Stephen will never be a top 6. Teddy, could never hack it in a bottom 6. Apples to Oranges. If Teddy is not an NHL regular in the next 2 years, there's 99% he will never be. Different types of talent take different paths and to say just because one guy did it means anybody else can is not the case.

 

FYI: When being sarcastic, you can't mean what you say. So by calling me Dane Cook and then mentioning his complete lack of talent, you're not being sarcastic. Just sayin'

 

If you're trying to find a player that plays a similar style as Tedenby too, then Martin St Louis was not drafted in an expansion draft and then bought out of his contract when he was 25 years old.

 

The point was, players at 22 aren't finished products yet.  Most players that will end up being amazing are already in the NHL, but there are guys who end up being NHL contributors who aren't full time NHL players at 22.

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.

JJ does a lot of things well but he does have hands of stone.  At this point it is about who has a greater upside in the grand scheme of things.  JJ can't score for his life, but he does have his usefulness on the PK and is far more defensively sound than Teddy.  Teddy is fast and have some moves, but he seems lost out there most times and both PDB and Lemaire have questioned his commitment to defense.

 

Therefore in the grand scheme of things I'd rather have JJ on the team now than Teddy.

 

Exactly. JJ, even if he never finds his hands, will be a useful player, Teddy if he can't crack a top 6, has no chance.

 

Well you wanna act like a cVck stain you deserve to be treated like one. Dont say anything if what youre going to input is garbage. And yes you are correct if hes not in the nhl by the NEXT 2 YEARS he never will be.

 

My input sucks, but I'm right. Glad you have a great grasp of the language.

That was a different time. A time when we got away with drafting smaller guys like Parise late in the 1st rd because it was all about size. People don't overlook smaller guys now and Teddy got his shot and usually, a skill guy, if he isn't even a regular call up by 22, I'd say there's call to be concerned he won't make it. His prime is 25, so he's got 3 years to start scoring, learn defense and gain like 25lbs.

Bart, seriously grow up.  You're coming as very annoying and childish here.

 

I'm not expecting big things from Teddy and JJ at this point anymore.  I'm guessing JJ will probably be the more useful player going forward, but I don't think either one of them is going to make a huge impact.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Barth, did you intentionally start a topic you knew almost no one would agree with you on, just for the sake of arguing? Pretty much seems the case.

 

On topic, I lke Teddy a lot, but the Devils have always been and always will be a defensively minded team. Teddy has no defensive awareness to his game, no matter how much I'm assuming they've tried to teach him or how many chances they've given him so far.

 

Is he a bust? I still think it's too early to say, but his chances with the Devils are definitely running out. That's not to say he wouldn't or couldn't flourish with a different team. Teddy just doesn't seem to have what the Devils system is made up of.

I started a topic to point out JJ is producing just as little as teddy did. I did it to debate, now when someone like ATL goes and acts like a 3rd grader it becomes an arguement which seems to happen alot on here with certain people who are childish.

Pesonally Id rather have matteau play and JJ scratched. But i think if teddy keeps learning the system in albany (which i have to assume they teach the same system them) he could develop into a better player than JJ because teddy has the offensive talent that JJ doesnt. Well i shouldnt say the talent that JJ doesnt have, i just see that teddy has way MORE offensive talent than jj, jj has an offensive upside too

Yeah because he doesnt even creat chances. and no im actually not lol

I'll bite I guess. The difference between JJ and teddy is that JJ is not a liability on the ice. the devils have JJ taking big defensive draws, killing penalties, and basically being the glue to hold that pretty weak 4th line together. Tedenby's defensive game is so bad it's laughable. When he gets in the defensive Zone he's just completely lost. The only way Tedenby can stay on ANY NHL team is if he can produce at some kind of rate that will offset his horrendous defensive play and he just can't do that. He's had his chance at the NHL level AND the AHL level and he couldn't sustain a reasonable production rate at either level. Furthermore he could do jack sh!t playing with top players. And yes Tedenbys hockey sense is awful. Like I said he has no idea what's going on in the defensive zone, and can't read the play accordingly which ultimately ends up in glorious scoring opportunities for the opposing team. Hockey sense is not "oh our team just got the puck I'm not going to skate up the middle of the ice and hope a teammate gives me a stretch pass."
Bottom line: both players have different skills, difference is that JJ's skills will keep him on a NHL team even if he does produce. Tedenby lacks way to much to stay on any NHL.

The Devils have always had a system where even their scorers have to be defensibly responsible.  Even Kovy took this this at the expense of some of his numbers.  Teddy just for some reason is just not getting that part of the game or does not want to.  The way the coaches look at it, when Teddy is on the ice he might score, but there is also a good chance another team will score against us.  At least with JJ while he might not score, we know he will be responsible in his own end and prevent goals from going against us.

 

It really all comes down to versitility and while Teddy may have more raw talent, JJ is more flexible.

Josefson has probably played more minutes this season with Kovalchuk than Tedenby has, if we're still comparing the two.

Ugh, not for nothing... You have 105 posts, you shouldn't even be allowed to start a topic til you hit 1000.  Back to JJ, he's young, really young.  So is tedenby, but if you think JJ won't be better than Tedenby in the future, you are wrong. JJ can play on any line, can play the pk, power play, can take crucial faceoffs, and can backcheck.  He is your prototypical devils player.  What can josefson not do? AT THE MOMENT, and i say atm, cause he's still so young, he can't shoot the puck and can't put up points.  However, Tedenby's job is to put up points as a top 6 forward and he can't do that, plus he is a HUGE defensive liability.  Therefore, ill take my chances with jj getting better offensively and providing all the intangibles that  a devils player needs than Tedenby actually learning how to score and play defense.  (and yes i know i only have like 30 posts but i dont start arguments with people ridiculously above me in posts)

I was talking about your first comment kiddo.

 

And everyone talking about JJ being better defensively, i already said that. Multiple times. My point is josesfson is playing like a solid 4th line player at BEST if not a healthy scratch. I dont see him producing like a 3rd yr player should and everyone who rips teddy should be ripping JJ just the same. Both players have their upsides and need to develop more and on their all around game. JJ is better defensively, Teds is better offensively. Btw in teddys 4 games this year he made very few mistakes and bad reads defensively if you watched him.

You do realize Teddys first season was three years ago. He put up some good numbers but he was still getting benched throughout those games for poor defensive play. For the last three seasons he has been going downhill while Josefson has been consistent and has not been a liability in those same three seasons.

Im sorry i just found the website recently, i am not worthy i apologize buddy. My points been made, JJ isnt doing anything to develop so if you wanna put teddy on the bust rack, make room for JJ. You dont draft first rounders to be an ok 4th liner in their 3rd yr with the team. Hopefully he starts to come along though.

Offensively speaking Tedenby and Josefson are not that far off in their limited time with the Devils. Josefson has 20 points in 82 games while Teddy has 29 pts in 105 games. Another similarity is both players get a lot of chances but do not finish. Josefson has had many oppurtunites this season alone to get some goals but he didn't finish. So Teddy's offense is not leaps and bounds ahead of Josefson at the moment. In the same time Josefson is a +9 while Tedenby is a -12. Offense and 'skill' isn't everything.

 

Bottom line is Josefson can play on any line, any situation, and is consistent.

Tedenby has offensive potential but cant harness it, needs to work on his defensive responsibilities, cannot play in all situations, and is inconsistent.

 

And this is why Josefson has a roster spot and why Tedenby struggles in Albany.

Magically? If you think coaches are wizards than more power to you too sir

 

 

Considering the smack the Devils fanbase was talking about the play of guys like Clarkson and Kovalchuk only a few years ago, I'd say coaching makes all the difference. Ask Clarkie and Bernier, another "bust".
