A thread to discuss practice lines, game-day lineups, scratches, potential call-ups, waivers, etc. Basically a thread to bitch. 

 

To start it off, looks like Tedenby is going to make his season debut tomorrow night. Clowe on the IR. That should make things interesting once Clowe is ready to be taken off the IR (after Saturday's game).

 

Practice lines today according to TG:

 

Patrik Elias-Adam Henrique-Jaromir Jagr

Mattias Tedenby-Travis Zajac-Michael Ryder

Dainius Zubrus-Andrei Loktiionov-Damien Brunner

Ryan Carter-Stephen Gionta-Steve Bernier 

 

Bryce Salvador-Marek Zidlicky

Andy Greene-Adam Larsson

Anton Volchenkov-Peter Harrold

 

So Fayne still the 7th and Deboer sticking with CBGB after Carter returns from his minor injury. Boooo.

That Volch/Harrold pairing has got to fvcking go. It might be the worst pairing in the entire league.

Would it really kill the team in DeBoer's mind to sit Stephen Gionta for one game and put Josefson in there in his place? Is that really too much to ask?

On a side note, I'd like to see DeBoer try to put Brunner on the PK in the same way he did with Kovalchuk. He's got the wheels to be a dangerous threat and it could help him bring his defensive game up to par.

I don't think the PK is the right place to try that, unless we wanna bitch about a crappy PK.

Yeah, because he's a "key player" and you don't sit "key players". *sigh*

It has been tried with guys with worse defensive reputations than Brunner's (Kovalchuk for one).

Brodeur will be starting vs Ottawa. Will be his first game action in 6 days. This early season schedule has been pretty crappy for getting goalies in any groove whatsoever. I know both spoke out about it being an issue. Just another issue early on in this season. Bad enough Brodeur is starting, but the long layoff creates more of a problem.

Would love to see Schneider start getting the bulk of the starts sooner than later, but that's not going to happen, for now.  Just hoping it never gets fugly for Marty (as I always do).

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?

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.

It kind of has, hasn't it? I mean Brodeur has had moments of brilliance, but the individual numbers for each game suck. 3.19 GAA with a .878 save percentage is brutal. Fan's of the teams the Devils are about to play are giggly when they find out Brodeur is playing instead of Schneider.

It's a small sample, which is keeping it from being fugly to me for the moment.  Can I honestly say I expect it to get much better than that?  Not really.  I'm guessing he finishes in the .890s somewhere.

With Tedenby becoming active and Clowe claiming that he's nearly ready, what does that mean for the roster? Does that mean Gionta will finally be sent down? Other than a trade, I'm not sure what the other options are. I just hope they don't do something crazy like waive Josefson or Olesz. Triumph mentioned a conditioning stint in another thread, which I guess is another possibility?

I don't think Clowe should be rushed at all. Year 1 of a 5-year deal, you've got a player with a history of concussions already feeling dizzy after an elbow to the head. He needs to sit out for a while. That or the Devils and their doctors aren't up to speed with what's going on in sports and brain injuries. 

 

But when the time comes and Clowe is ready to play...t's tough to say. I guess we will really know how much this organization loves Gionta.

you know what.... changing forward is something, but our plroblem is the fvcking DEFENCE PETE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Turnovers, not breakout, no transition, no speed, no heavy shot , bad defence covering is our fvckin problem... The D are slow (except for greene and ZID)

 

Captain Salvador and peter harrold on the blue line are killing this team... (PUT MARK FAYNE IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

 

try the young guy like the Gelinas and merrill... (Kids will make mistake, but our fvcking veteran are turnovers making machine)

 

Merrill gelinas fayne in...

 

Get rid of harrold, zidlicky (volchenkov or Salvador). 

 

It annying when every time the Devils have goos possession number etc they loose game!!!! The Monahan goal and the third winnipeg goal is an example of how pathetic we are at the blue line.... 

 

If im schnaider and D play like that for 2 year in front of me, no way i resign there

I'd wager that Teddy is going to get one real good last look here while Clowe is out. If he plays well, I bet we trade him, if not, I wouldn't be surprised to see him waived. Anybody really gonna miss Teddy if we lose him?

I doubt that's what it means, but I don't really know what other options they have.  Conditioning stints don't remove a player from the roster.

A thread to discuss practice lines, game-day lineups, scratches, potential call-ups, waivers, etc. Basically a thread to bitch.

To start it off, looks like Tedenby is going to make his season debut tomorrow night. Clowe on the IR. That should make things interesting once Clowe is ready to be taken off the IR (after Saturday's game).

Practice lines today according to TG:

Patrik Elias-Adam Henrique-Jaromir Jagr
Mattias Tedenby-Travis Zajac-Michael Ryder
Dainius Zubrus-Andrei Loktiionov-Damien Brunner
Ryan Carter-Stephen Gionta-Steve Bernier

Bryce Salvador-Marek Zidlicky
Andy Greene-Adam Larsson
Anton Volchenkov-Peter Harrold

So Fayne still the 7th and Deboer sticking with CBGB after Carter returns from his minor injury. Boooo.

You know what they say about the definition of insanity...

I agree that Tedenby is probably getting a final look. Though I don't think he has much (if any at all) trade value and I think it's likely he'd make it thru waivers. I honestly wouldn't lose any sleep if someone else did claim him. This is his chance to show he deserves a roster spot.
