Josefson is head and shoulders better and more useful than Tedenby, Tedenby is only valuable to the team if he's scoring goals because of the fact that he's dumb as bricks on the defensive side of the puck, even if Josefson isn't producing he's still valuable to the team because of his hockey IQ and defensive abilities, it's absolutely no contest on who the better player is.


Yeah thats why their stats are so different right?..........................................and why josefson got sent to the ahl for scrubs like steve sullivan and matt diagistini to take up his roster spot....stop it. Josefson is not as solid as the people on this website try and make him out to be. Clocking out on this conversation now, I said I didnt want to get into a tedenby josefson pissing match but that didnt work.

You're looking at stats and not gameplay. And Tedenby got sent to the minors weeks before Josefson last year, so I'm not sure what JJ going to the minors has to do with anything.

Because Josefson can kill penalties, is a year younger, and has put up better offensive stats in professional hockey to date.  Teams would be lining up to claim a former 1st round pick 4 years from being drafted who puts up .66 points per game in the minors, plays center, and plays an effective two-way game.  Tedenby stinks at defense and his offense isn't good enough to carry that - unless he's improved remarkably he will not be an NHL player.

His terms must be too high. I think the teams have written him off unless he come in real cheap for a year.

Josefson is definitely a better player than Tedenby, but I had much higher hopes than 3C or 3LW/RW, but that seems to be what he's destined for now.  He still looks..puny..out there, I wonder if he'll manage to stay healthy this year.

We have been hearing about Tedenby looking good in camp the past 2 seasons now and look at what happened.  IDK about anything else but I think the kid is a lost cause at least at the NHL level.

 

He never looked THAT good in camp. From several accounts, he looks really good and ready to play this year, maybe that means he bulked up (one could hope)..

 

The real test will be how he plays on Monday. Preseason or not, it will be a physical match, and we'll get a good sense of where he's at..

The fact that the Red Wings (where he played really well last year) haven't jumped on signing him at whatever he's requesting says enough for me. I'd imagine Lou feels the same and is waiting for his lowball offer bait to catch the fish..

I think the Red Wings were full and they didn't accept his demands based on his performance and time in NHL.

Cleary fills a role on the team, Brunner would not.  The Wings went with Alfredsson which seems like an odd choice - Brunner definitely has a chance of being better than Alfredsson, though Alfie looks to be a better territorial player.

+ 1. Stats don't effectively measure defense. It drives me crazy with 2 way forwards, and drives me crazier with dmen. I always felt Paul Martin was undervalued because he didn't score many goals (though Pitt gave him a good contract, so maybe I'm wrong).

Martin was their best defensemen this year. JJ obviously is better. Tedenby looks good in camp every time before he plays actual games for us. He seems to have some mental block in him when he hits the NHL ice

I think that both Tedenby and JJ are young and hopefully haven't shown us their best stuff yet. Lets hope they are still with the Devils when that happens. IMO JJ is better than Gionta right now. Tedenby is better than both of our goons. How is Tedenby going to be after coming back from major facial cut IDK will he play scared? DeBoer has to give the kids a chance.

Tedenby is better than our goons, but with the Rags and Flyers in the division, you need at least 1 goon on the roster, even if he spends most of the season in the press box. So the real question with Tedenby is is he better than our 4th liners. He may be better than Gionta (though, despite his flaws, Gionta's production has been no worse, and he plays some PK minutes), but so far, he's no better than Olesz, Carter, or Bernier, so, unless he's gotten better since last year, I don't see him having a spot. I hope I'm wrong, but I also wouldn't just give him minutes because he's young. It's not like he's taken minutes in the past and run with them. Also, if we can get a guy like Brunner, who's done it in the NHL already, for a decent price, I don't hold back because it would hurt Tedenby.
