Little surprised at this - wasn't sure they would sign him to an NHL deal.

I know it's hard to tell anything about a defenseman from his scoring stats but those numbers certainly don't look very exciting.

He didn't.  He reported that Albany had signed him to a tryout.  You can sign a player to a tryout before signing them to a full-fledged contract (hence tryout)

Well sure, but his upside is probably a back pairing D/7th D type.

 

Gives NJ 12 D on the reserve list already for next year (6 on the NHL roster, Merrill, Urbom, Gelinas, Burlon, Scarlett, Helgeson)

Its probably not that but one can only dream that this move is pointing out that Lou will clean house this summer and make sure theres enough young depth for the NHL and AHL

It's too bad Scott Niedermayer didn't sign on here to be a coach.  He and Stevens together would be great for these kids.  Obviously, they aren't all going to be here...

I'd honestly rather Bruce Driver sign on to be a coach. He didn't have too terribly much natural skill but was an exceptionally intelligent defenceman.

 

Nieds had so much natural skill that a lot of what he did was reliant upon his extreme speed that the players he would be coaching wouldn't have at their disposal.

This exactly. A lot of times, the greats can't coach. Sometimes it can be hard to teach something that comes to you naturally.

This is why Gretzky failed as a coach (my opinion)
