I've been saying this all week. Give Whitney a shot. He's been  a AHLer for 3/4 years, he's earned a shot. We need something offensively, so what the hell. It doesn't cost a thing and we have a roster spot already open and potentiall a second with Gionta maybe going on IR.

Totally agree with this. I'd give Whitney a shot, while scratching Brunner for a bit. Whitney has Brunner's speed, but with the will and desire to get in the dirty areas. Obviously he doesn't have a comparable shot, but we really need people who will crash the net and get some chip ins with all the point shots our system generates.

I agree with that. We aren't getting maybe as many garbage goals as we've gotten in the past with Zach and Clarkson cleaning up nicely. Clowe was supposed to help with that, but oops.

 

I think we need to look towards more off season free agency to help us out. Stastny would be a huge help as the number 2 Center slot.

Boucher would almost certainly be worse than Brunner, I'd guessing.  I admittedly haven't watched a single AHL game this year, but I'd imagine Boucher is worse than Brunner defensively.  Not to mention he's still a 'boy' among men, so to speak.  I bet he'd get dominated in the big leagues at this point.  A full year in the AHL would definitely be the best thing for him.

Absolutely agree, why not?  Especially with Gio going down.

 

I think we need to look towards more off season free agency to help us out. Stastny would be a huge help as the number 2 Center slot.

 

I'll bet he gets stupid money though, as is now almost always the case.  I think he'd be great here, but not at the 6-6.5m AAV he's going to get.

I'm willing to try anything.  lol

 

I don't know much about him though.  Is he a true point producer, or is he simply having a good year?

He had 51 points last year, and 44 points the year before that.

Do shot levels change as competition levels change or do they have significant differences? Boucher and Whitney seem to be able to get in the spots they need to get open. That remains to be seen right now with Brunner. When was his last "big" scoring chance even?

I hope Whitney gets a shot since he's been playing well in Albany and I'd rather see Boucher stay down there for the time being. Whitney did enough to earn himself the NHL contract in the offseason so why not give him a shot? Sure he's 5'6, 170 but he's a 0.73 point-per-game player in Albany. Would not mind seeing Brunner scratched and I still don't think much of Tedenby. I love Janssen but he shouldn't be playing every single game, why not let Whitney have a shot.

Against San Jose he had a 2 on 1 and passed the puck, but he was in a good scoring position.

 

The thing about Brunner is that he's still the team's leader in shots on goal.  I don't think there's a ton of quality shots in there, but the guy is able to get the puck and put it on net, something that a lot of the guys on the team aren't able to do.  Playing with someone who isn't Bernier or Ryder would help him, I think.

 

I wouldn't mind Whitney as an injury call up and I think Janssen's time has come and gone, but I think he should be playing with offensively-minded players.  I'm not sure what he will accomplish playing on the 4th line.

Brunner has played with everyone but jagr. Who else do you want to line him up with? He was given zajac. He's been given Elias. He's gotten henrique. He's had loktionov.

It's him

I want Clowe and Elias to play with him.  Or Elias and Henrique.  I'm aware that he has been terrible, but the Devils need him to be better.

Brunner isn a good player in a bad funk right now.  I'd try him at LW with Jagr.  I'm pretty sure he can play both wings.

Brunner on the same line as Ryder is stupid. They're the same player - if they don't shoot they're useless.
