Why would gionta start over yayo. Oh right, PDB is our coach.

 

Also I think i'd rather see greene with salvador, because salvador is imo a giant liability and andy greene can make up for his suck.

 

A pairing of zids and salavador sounds like a giant disaster.

Do you think they carry 8 defensemen if/when everyone is healthy? Because realistically here is how I see the 23 man roster:

Forwards:
Dainius Zubrus – Travis Zajac- Jaromir Jagr
Adam Henrique – Patrik Elias – Damien Brunner
Ryane Clowe - Andrei Loktionov – Michael Ryder
Ryan Carter – Stephen Gionta – Steve Bernier
Extra: Jacob Josefson

Defensemen:
Andy Greene – Mark Fayne
Marek Zidlicky – Bryce Salvador
Adam Larsson – Eric Gelinas
Extras: Anton Volchenkov – Peter Harrold

Goalies:
Martin Brodeur
Cory Schneider

I have a hard time to seeing the Devils put Harrold on waivers, which makes it a good possibility they carry 8 defensemen. What do y'all think?

the key to your post is the "if/when healthy" part. The reality is that it's very unlikely we have a full compliment of healthy players at any one time.

But to answer your question, I don't think Lou will have a problem carrying 8 defensemen for short stints, but he will likely either move one (fayne most likely), or stash one on IR if need be with some "lingering" injury.

yeah it's likely everyone won't be healthy, but I like to speculate.

lol I agree it's always fun to try to stack up your best lineup.

I just hope clowe and Larsson can come back and contribute. If that happens and we don't suffer any other major injuries we have a good shot at the playoffs.

I'd really like to see Merrill with Greene.  I don't want Merrill's offensive ability to be limited by pairing him with Volchenkov.  Greene is a good passer, and Merrill can unleash the one timer more often with Greene than with Volchenkov.

 

Greene - Merrill

Gelinas - Zidlicky

Volchenkov - Fayne

Clowe's back in practice, skating on a new CBGB line (for now):

Good news.  Contrary to popular belief, I think Clowe is actually needed on this team.

Friday against the Penguins was his last start. He didn't play that well. Marty did against Tampa.

Yeah, Schneider hasn't really had a good start in the last 3 he's played.  I don't mind going with Brodeur here so long as it's consistent.

If Marty plays well tomorrow, I'd imagine he'll get Anaheim and Schneider would get Washington.

Larsson has started skating and we still aren't privy to what his injury is. Sometimes, this team...

But it also sounded like he thinks he can play. So it's odd he says he's fine but has basically been told he won't play but DeBoer said Clowe might.

I assume he isn't playing and DeBoer just didn't want to publicly say so.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Yes, but they never even gave an indication that he'd be out this long. Spill didn't look that bad, then it was "no, Larsson isn't skating" for a month and then "yeah he's skating, we knew he'd be out 4-6 weeks". I don't care about the exact injury but I think they could at least say that a player will be out for some time.

I'd rather clowe just wait until after the break to come back... The team has been playing pretty well the past few games so no reason to rush. Give him the extra week.
