Zubrus had a day off but will play Wednesday, so Tedenby was just a placeholder.

I knew I must have been missing something when I saw that

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?

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.

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

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

Per TG, Marty in net tomorrow. When was Schneider's last start? It had to be well over a week ago now.

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.
