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.

I was told hours ago that a #NJDevils Brunner nameplate was made for the Prudential Center.

Love it if we get him. This creates some real competition to get in the top 6. Also gives us some help in case of injuries.


Edit: In case you don't follow him. Todd Cordell does a great job covering the Devils and was the first to report this.

WOOOO!!!!

According to multiple reports, the Devils have invited Damien Brunner to camp on a professional tryout basis.

I had heard earlier today that a nameplate was made for Brunner and that he was expected to join the team.

I'm guessing he'll report to camp within the next day or two and be in the lineup when the Devils play Thursday night.

I think this was a very smart move by Lou Lamoriello to bring him in for a look. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see him eventually end up signing with the team.

 

Also yes, Todd is a very good sports writer. It's amazing how young he really is. Man deserves mad props!

I think Lou probably pulled another hardball move knowing he didnt need Brunner 100% (not at the price he was asking anyway) and gambled on waiting late to try to get him cheaper if he couldnt get any taker.

 

I don't always agree with Lou's ways but when he pull off stuff like that I definitely see good ol' Lou

NJDEVILS sign Brunner to an ATO, he'll practice tomorrow
 

Lou Lamoriello re-words, not ATO, PTO, "skillful. No promises, no guarantees"

Elias - Zajac - Jagr 

Clowe - Henrique - Ryder 

Zubrus - Loktionov - Brunner 

Carter - Josefson - Bernier 

 

Olesz - Barch - Tedenby

 

thats a good depth, not a lot of top end talent but good depth. Sucks to lose all the talent we did in the last few years but in another way i've been saying that NJ didnt really need that most of the time with their system. It's a system that you have to do the same thing over and over and work hard hoping to capitalize at some point, its not to creative so you don't see our guys do things their way too often. Thats why guys like Bernier or Carter are doing great.

The official NHL App® just announced it. I bet this wasn't the way Damien wanted it to go down.

Why are some sources listing him as a center? Thought he was a winger.

if he does make the team as a try-out, can we assume his contract would be a lot less than he is asking for
