There is zero reason for salvador to replace anyone on the roster, except maybe volch. I dont wanna see fayne scratched or merril sent down, or else I'll probably stop watching this season. PDB is either to stupid to see the right players to play, or to spineless to tell the vets their going to sit, I'm totally fvcking sick of it.

Yeah if they send Merrill down or scratch Fayne for Sal, that'll piss me off. So I'm preparing to be pissed off because one of those two things is probably gonna happen (unless Lou swings a trade... Lmao, yeah right).

I think Merrill has looked fantastic, but him heading back to the AHL for a while wouldn't be the worst thing in the world for his development. We now know that he can hack it in the NHL, so maybe letting him use this added confidence in Albany could be good for him.

 

Now, Gelinas, on the other hand, should never see the AHL again.

If Gelinas gets sent down, unless he's being replaced by 1994 scott stevens, we storm the Rock

I laughed.

Merrill is going to be sent down at some point this season, unless the defense never gets healthy. I would rather that than him being a scratch.

I agree. I think he's shown Lou that he can and will be an NHLer, and is the obvious call up until a spot opens up permanently, either through trade or Zid/Fayne leaving in the off season. Or maybe even a Volch buyout, but I doubt it.

I believe Merrill is a better defensmen now and into the future but Gelinas used properly is worth more to the team. Neither should be sent down.

One thing I do notice with Merrill is that there is absolutely no panic with him.

I would like to see more offense from Merrill, but I've been very impressed with him defensively.

Talk out of Washington is that Urbom may be waived when Erskine returns from injury.  It may be just me, but I can see Lou claiming him even though we have like 72 defenseman on the roster already.

I think it's just you.  The Devils don't need Urbom at all, either now or in the future.  He's also been pretty terrible for Washington.

Montreal outshot Washington 13-4 in the first period and broke on top at the 15:20 mark. Capitals defenseman Alexander Urbom failed to clear a puck from behind the net, and Briere scored on a wraparound between Holtby's legs.

Urbom was benched the rest of the game by Washington coach Adam Oates.

 

"We weren't happy with his game last game, and he basically made the same mistake and it cost us a goal," Oates said. "We feel like he's struggling to make those reads, and it's too early in the game to allow another."

He was benched the rest of that game and has been scratched in the five games since.  So yeah, not going terribly well for him in Washington.

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.

Not disputing that we don't need him, or that he hasn't been playing badly in Washington.  But with Lou, you really can't put it past him.

lol some know it alls who follow the caps came on the radio down here at the beginning of the season claiming they got a steal in urbom. Not a peep from them now.

And tri Is right, with Merrill and gelinas emerging, urbom would just be another body to clog up the d. We need to figure out ways to get rid of the extra bodies not bring more in.

Eh I would think Lou could've still gotten a 4th or 5th round pick for him.  Which are essentially worthless, I know, but hey, it's still a shot at grabbing a gem.

 

Always liked the kid though, shame he's struggling.  Still hope he pans out into a top-6 kinda guy.

he passed through waivers to #20, so I doubt this a lot.

 

If the Devils claim him, where would he go?  Would the Devils try to put him back on waivers and jam him into the minors?  (Which if Washington is the only team to claim him, they can also do, without having to put him back on waivers?)  The Devils don't need Alex Urbom.  Merrill is clearly miles ahead of him.

I wouldn't mind having Urbom back just to have an "elite" D in the AHL. Don't we have someone from the ECHL playing D right now? Hrbanaka or whatever
