Just read this article on Hemsky.  Wouldn't mind getting him to play RW on our 2nd line, especially if Clarkson walks.

Thing is the Swedes he has been drafting lately haven't really turned out into anyone significant. Swedes are usually a safe bet but they have been poison to Conte lately.


Tedenby was a bad pick from the start.

Josefson is capable of handling tough minutes at 22 years old. That's pretty rare. The offense may never come, but I don't see why he can't be a 35 pt 3rd line center

Sky is the limit for Larsson

I can't see the name 'Tedenby' without seeing the name 'Carlson' in my head... Just a terrible decision

Yea we can't trade that pick. Forfeiting is turning it over to the league, we can't inherit any value for it. Bobby Ryan would be fantastic but landing him gets very complicated

Tedenby was probably the biggest bust since the 2005 lockout.

 

Josefson is good, but I think he was sold as more of an Elias type player rather than a 3rd or 4th line center.  I am a little disappointed in him so far, but he has at least shown promise.

 

I think the jury is still out for Larsson.

 

Bergfors was decent, but his greatest asset was being part of the Kovy trade.

Could have gotten Oshie instead of Bergfors. Oshie is such a NJ type player too.

1. Want Nichushkin but I think he'll go before #9 so I'll say we get Shinkaruk.

2. Elias, Zubs, Zids

3. Someone to replace Parise's scoring please. Ryan sounds good. Don't really want to give up too much to be honest but that issue needs to be addressed somehow. I'm willing to deal Larsson for a top line winger because of our depth on D in the system but if we're dealing Larsson I want more/younger than than Ryan. Eberle or Yakupov?

4. Volchenkov but I don't think it will happen. Don't think Lou will buy anyone out.

In all likelihood, Lou will get either Elias or Clarkson done. Zids will be resigned too. Forgot about him. As far as free agency, Lou won't sign anyone significant. If we do manage to pickup anybody it will be a utility player on the cheap. That's my bold prediction.

Lou almost NEVER goes after high profile players. we were in the running for Jagr at the deadline, and Lou dropped the ball. ditto for Iginla

dropped the ball? the devils did not have nearly the package that was worth iginla who would've never waived his NTC to come here. the jagr trade would've cost something like gelinas + 2nd - no thank you.

Although rumored I am not sure how much the the Devils were in the hunt for Jagr.  Also I do not think the Devils had the assets for Iginla and we need a long-term fix, not these short stop-gaps to help with team scoring.

Kovalchuk and Mogilny say hi.

And I really wouldn't say he dropped the ball not going after Jagr. The price was too steep. The devils weren't really looking like a playoff team at the time, so it was very possible they'd acquire a rental literally for no reason.

This, so true.

Can you imagine the fail if the Devils had shipped a good pick and prospect off just to miss the playoffs?

I have a conversation I'd like to bring up, but don't really think it deserves a new thread, but it has to do with the direction the team is traveling, so this seems like a good spot to spark it.

Basically, I was thinking about defensemen, ours, and others around the league, specifically the Rangers. What I started thinking at first, is that their D-Core is a lot better, but as I continued thinking about it, I got a few different ideas. All of them basically had to do with how expendable our D Men were.

I don't think it's a secret we don't have super stars along the blue line anymore. (Keep in mind this isn't a bash our defense idea) but does PDBs system not call for the star,stay at home D Men we were used to in the Jacques, trap days? If so, what was the order of events? Did Lou want to put more an emphasis on forward play, and take the team in that direction? Or maybe PDB came in, realizing our Stevens,Nieds and Dano days are long gone, and work with what he had?

So I want to know what you guys think, do you think it's just a matter of time before we see a D Core of Larsson,Fayne,Gelinas, Urbom and Merrill before we return to playing lockdown D? Or are we a franchise that now looks to bring in scores, to fit our aggressive forechecking system?

Please, fire away because these thoughts have been swirling around my head and I'm eager to see how you guys feel

It's a matter of time. PDB has been here two years and there's been 0 turnover in the d corps aside from Foster coming and going. My guess is the team has wanted to make over the defense from within for years and as such have been drafting good defenseman for a while and now have a few stockpiled.

I, for one, cannot wait to see our defense become more mobile. We only have Green, Larsson and Zid as decent PMD, Harrold is ok, Fayne is mobile, but doesn't have too great a shot and isn't a fantastic passer either. In the NHL today, your whole defense needs to be agile and able to add to the offense at all times. We don't need tons of Drew Doughty's, but I think if we can graduate half of our high level d prospects to the NHL in the next 5 years, we'll be looking pretty good on D.

i agree with the Fayne having a bad shot. remember last years finals where Fayne had a HUGE opening in the net to shoot at *and mind you he was not even 2 feet away from the net* in OT in game 2 and he shot it OVER the net. either he choked or he is a horrible shot

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.
