I wonder which line /role (Johnson) he'll be playing. Guess we'll find out soon enough. Albany's in a playoff position, so third line checking role? Wonder if he was on pk?  pp time?

I don't think Johnson got power play time in Windsor so I doubt he'd be getting much in Albany.

Swift Current PBP announcer, Shawn Mullin, interviewed C Graham Black the other day. When asked about his future with the Devils, Black was a bit guarded with his answer. I think they'll sign him and his answer was just him not trying to say too much. His answer was, "Not really, there's nothing worth mentioning. I don't have any concrete facts or anything, so I would probably not rather talk on that."

 

So, one might say the situation is status-quo. SIGNED. Great Lou answer by Black.

I'm just not seeing where we'll have room.

 

Greene, Larsson, Merrill, Gelinas and Harrold will be here- 5

 

I believe one of Volchenkov and Salvador will be gone- 1

 

Zids probably walks but I wouldnt doubt Fayne comes back.  Even if he doesnt, no way we go in with a 21,22,23 and 20 year old on the blueline

Yeah, you're right I get excited at the thought of having a young, mobile D corps. A year in the AHL would be good for him

D Curtis Gedig now with Albany on an ATO. Like Johnson, I hope he gets an ELC eventually.

I find it hard to imagine Fayne not coming back. He flies so under the radar, I can't imagine other GMs plucking him away from us. He knows he'll hold a huge role with this team in just a year or two and I think Lou will get him to stay for a fair amount for both sides.

I don't get why many folks find Fayne so pedestrian. i think he's a top 4 guy. Big/mobile we have an awesome #1 pairing w/ numbers 6 & 7

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?

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.

Yeah, it's a really tough match up. Halifax is led by Drouin who had 108 points in 46 games and right behind him is 2014 high 1st round prospect Nikolaj Ehlers who had 104 points in 63 games.

Halifax also has Fucale in goal, who may or may not be a bit overrated, but was worth +12.16 goals above average using the GSAA metric. By comparison for Gatineau, Steeves was -23.68 and Brodeur was -6.01. Maybe Brodeur gets some mop up duty in this series.

Steeves is probably done after this season.  He's not only old for a Q player, but not any good either.

Yeah, hard to imagine, but he's been a minute-muncher for us the past 2-3 years that he's been a Devil, I could see some stupid GM (Ex. Toronto, Philly, Pitt) giving him some ridiculous offer.  I'd rather that Lou would not let him walk and give him a 2-3 year deal.

Tampa is going to be scary with Drouin. Now just imagine if the Rags have a disaster year next year, and Tampa ends up with a high draft pick.

Those GMs are too stupid to realize he's good (aside from Shero maybe, he's not stupid or as stupid as the others). Maybe a team like Boston for not a huge amount? Detroit would probably be the best fit outside of here since they need people like Fayne
