Happy Fayne is back in the line up but Larsson shouldn't be the one sitting despite having 2 dreadful games to open the year. The kid needs to play to develop. I don't want to hear, "its good for young guys to observe a game now and then" since I can already see Larsson getting yo-yo'd around while Harrold and Volchenkov stay in the line up no matter what.

Greene, Fayne, and Larsson should be constants. Of course Salvador and Zidlicky will stay in no matter what. One of Harrold or Volchenkov should sit.

Carter hasn't been at his best but Gionta is still the problem on that line. I like Olesz and he deserves a shot so I won't nitpick too much on that one.  What really grinds my gears is that Josefson sits while Gionta continues to play. Really don't like the way the Devils have handled Josefson's development at all.

So help me God, this team better play mistake-free hockey in front of Schneids and get him this W. Enough of the bullsh!t defensive breakdowns. LGD. EDIT: and now I see its Larsson who sits for Fayne, just brilliant Pete. You're the master buddy.

maybe pete just doesnt have the balls to sit one of the vet players over the younger kids.. i mean why else would he continue to keep doing this.. Larsson doesnt deserve to sit over volch that dumb ass or harrold. Only thing i could think of.. pete has no balls OR hes secretly trying to destruct the teams success from the inside out.. HMMM.. although you cant rule out any option i think pete just has no balls that must be it.. or maybe he could even be blind.. maybe he has Alzheimer's? and cant remember who is who??

And Lou sits there and supports this sh!t, probably doesn't say anything. How does he stand by and agree with these moves? Anyone with two eyes and 2 working brain cells wouldn't agree with these moves.

Can someone please tell me what Pete sees in Harrold and Gionta that we don't see?  I love Gionta.  I mean you'd almost say I have a creepy obsession with him.  But good god he's not gonna do anything for this team at the moment.  Gio is strictly an energy guy with no skill.  Josefson actually has skill.

Did DeBoer have a traumatic brain injury after the finals? It's the only way to explain how incompetent he's been since then w/ personnel. He's basically Randy Carlyle with a better GM now 

 

The brain injury was Oates/Robinson leaving.

Harrold is better than Larsson right now.  Zidlicky is too.  So it's either move a guy off his natural side to the left and scratch Volchenkov, or let Larsson sit a game.

I think them leaving was worse than Parise/Clarkson/Kovy leaving.

I prefer the former.  But whatever.

Robinson was the biggest loss.  Oates I'm not so sure since his PP's weren't very good.

According to HF, Larsson played the left side growing up.  Apparently the Devils have never taken this into consideration with Pete's obsession with having lefties on the left side and vice-versa.

This is so frustrating.. I can't even imagine how these kids feel.

that's probably due to the fact that his system is literally, dump the puck, get puck, send puck to the point for a shot in front 95% of the time... that wouldnt work too well with a lefties on the right side.

 

Also why we dont have much production from the D... look at who's the dmen scoring around the league and you'll see that "most" of them are cutting in the middle for shots, not from the outside. Or you have to backup with the puck towards the middle for a shot, not as effective or easy to do going around a guy

 

well of course we dont have much production cause we have guys who can't get puck through or who's ever been good at producing

Well, I'm sure the defensive system isn't to have RD end up on the opposite side boards digging for a puck, but things happen.

I'm pretty sure PDB doesn't make these decisions on his own. He probably consults Stevens on these defense decisions. I imagine if Robinson stayed we wouldn't see so much of the pylons in the lineup.

Larsson has been pretty bad. Considering that he's got this tremendous offensive upside, he's been a total defensive liability. He can't prevent the rush.
