Larsson has 48 shots his last 21 games or 20 shots his last 8 games. In Sislo's last 16 games he has 45 shots. In Boucher's last 15 games he has 38 shots. Call these kids up.

How many shots a game would Bernier, Gionta, Carter, Josefson, Merrill, or Gelinas be getting if they were playing in Albany? It would probably be pretty similar.

You are probably right but all 3 were also impressive in their time with NJ.  Sislo was able to put up shots ES in his short stint.

Watching those recent highlights, we have some real size on the blue line with Hrabarenka, Urbom, Helgeson (Larsson isn't small either).  I almost like the lineup in Albany more than the NJ lineup.

WOW..What a game by Albany. Sweet rip by Boucher to tie it. Albany seems poised to be a dangerous team in the Calder Cup playoffs.

Would be nice to see a drafted Devils goalie not fizzle out by his mid-20s for a change, wouldn't it?

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

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?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

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 that really would be great haha. I can't think of one who hasn't since the Marty, Schwab, Dunham draft in 1990.

Albany's going to have a loaded defense for their playoff run. 

 

As for theDevils goalie drafting history...Ari Ahonen's has actually been an excellent KHL goalie for a number of years now.

I believe in Wedgewood.  It would be great it he continues his development and slots in very nicely behind Schneider after a few years.  If Cory continues to play well, Wedge could be a great young asset(age 24 or 25 maybe) to flip for a talented young forward.  I'm getting ahead of myself, but something to believe in and hope for.  Watching those highlights, I'm thinking, "Damn, Sislo and Boucher are quite the young forwards."  Sislo's goal was just as pretty as Boucher's.  He split the D on that one.  Also, Larsson is getting a lot of PP time in Albany, which is excellent for his development I think.  I feel that Hrabarenka has been playing quite well too, he made an excellent diving defensive play in those highlights.  I actually might try and follow the A-Devs and their playoff hopes.

Good to see Janssen back playing. He was out with some infection for a while, correct?

 

I liked Sislo's game his entire time while he was up. He should be up next year with the big club.

I honestly didn't even notice until now that Janssen missed a month. I searched but didn't find anything relating to an infection or why he missed time so I'm not sure what was up.

 

I also hope to see Sislo in NJ next season. According to CapGeek he is a UFA so hopefully Lou is able to re-sign him. Great year for him though, 23 goals, 16 assists in 53 games and 2.47 shots per game. His SH% is a high 17.56 but still, I think he deserves an extended look. He's going to be 27 next year so it's not like he's going to get much better, time to see if he can handle it full time in the NHL.

 

I also want to give some praise to Kelly Zajac. 9 goals, 28 assists in 56 games in his 1st full AHL season. Seems like he has a decent chance to land a NHL contract from the Devils. Darcy landed one at an older age with much less production.
 

 

Wedgewood coming up big in a stretch run is good to see.

It's awesome that he's stepped up this month (.930 SV% in 5 games) since Kinkaid has been in a bit of rut. He's only facing an average of 20 shots per game in those 5 starts so his teammates seem to be doing a solid job in front of him.

Looks like Hraberanka earned a spot on the team by his own merit. O think we can feel pretty good about our "D" in the near future. I hope Lou does resign Sislo
