Lou said this is a mobility issue, so Butler may stay for now, but they really don't have any wingers below him.  Honestly, I could see them sending Butler down and bringing up Janssen.

 

No chance of seeing Pesonen?

Didn't expect that to happen, he's already passed through twice.  While I thought Butler was not good during his time here (and wow did that 2nd PP unit need overhauling), NJ will once again have just about no one to call up if they lose a winger.  Maybe they will get in touch with Sykora's people after all.

bad news is... he was playing on our PP... which means he'll be replaced by an even worst player

Have a feeling poni will replace him. For some reason poni wasn't getting PP time.
And poni is someone I would have put on that unit over butler, so I don't think that's much of a problem. This hurts more in the depth department.

He was already replaced by Loktionov on the PP on the Devils' final PP chance.  That's the one where the second unit actually got shots on goal.  Honestly, the 2nd unit was beyond atrocious.

 

Bobby Butler played 25 minutes of 5 on 4 time and the Devils averaged 13.0 shots per 60 minutes.  That's close to half of what they average at 5 on 5.

I think it's finally time we address our PP woes.  That's right, it's knucklepuck time!

Loktionov.  PP functions the same as the first unit does with Loktionov sliding up in the umbrella when called for, just like Elias does.  Who needs a half-boards shooter when he's as bad as Bobby Butler was.
