He more or less said he was done after the announcement if the Henrique signing. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD


Okay cool, thanks. Just wanted to know if I should be waiting for something or not (even though with Lou we all know we should never be "expecting" news).

More or less I thought he was quite clear. He is done unless things change. Status Quo is appropriate

Wonder if Lou will have any last minute "Invitee's for camp? (I hope not) Langenbruner? Anthony Stewart, Chad LaRose (I think he'll end up somewhere)

I don't think so, since LaRose seems like a third line type, and there are no spaces there for him.

 

Mueller is the only interesting UFA remaining (in my opinion), but he isn't going to try out with the Devils. He may even be done with the NHL, which is too bad for him since he's shown a lot of promise in the past.

Larose signed overseas already.  Anthony Stewart is trying out with San Jose.  Langenbrunner is finished.

Maybe on an AHL deal, but his OHL numbers aren't anything impressive

I wonder if this kid knows someone or something? Nothing about his OHL stats suggest even an AHL deal for him. Nice size at 6'2, 204 but only 73 points, 131 PIM in 169 OHL games and last year as a 19/20 yr old he only had 48 points in 71 games with 61 PIM - so it's not like he is the enforcer type.

 

I don't know, if this isn't a favor or something than maybe he's some kind of late bloomer that has some attractive qualities in his game. He will be Devils prospect, Ben Johnson's teammate this year so the Devils will be able to keep tabs on him.

The Devils usually invite someone like this to camp.  Remember they took J.T. Barnett to camp to multiple development camps and at least one regular training camp.  We probably would've said the same thing about Clarkson in 2005.  Obviously not saying that Giftopoulos is another Clarkson but that junior hockey doesn't necessarily get the best out of everyone (and Windsor was awful last year)

I saw that he was listed as the team captain for a recent game. Is that his normal role or does the captaincy float around in WHL?

I'm guessing he's an "energy' type (Lou loves these guys) He's dropped the gloves many times apparently. But you never know, he could actually have underlying "skills"?

Per TG:

 

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said the team has a good relationship with Windsor and was asked to take a look at Giftopoulos in camp. Lamoriello said Giftopoulos will “go back to junior” after camp.

I guess a good way to put my thoughts is.... knowing the organization you cant count them out and with a good system they could be competitive.But lots of guys are gonna have to step up.

 

That been said, if i really want to win a game on NHL14... i won't pick the devils lol cause on paper we're really not that great

 

but paper doesnt win games we know that but you also can't ignore that teams winning championship have at least 2 stars on the team or a lot of over average players
