Appears Janssen is on waivers, Brunner and Harrold back. Gelinas-Merrill as 4th pairing in practice atm, Greene-Fayne, Harrold-Volchenkov, Salvador-Zidlicky...

Oh God Harrold is back... Great. Another guy that just needs to get the hell out of here that Lou refuses to get rid of. Great. At least Brunner's back.

That's how RC posted the d-pairings, I wouldn't read too much into who's playing/not yet. I still think Gelinas-Merrill gets in over Volchie-Harrold - They will go with that forward group if all 12 are in tomorrow. Obviously who gets scratched from D.

 

What leads me to think that Harrold and Volchie will be extras is, to put in Harrold you need to take out 2 defenseman if they are going with six. Are they really going to take out Gelians and Merrill guys who have played well as of late and are producing for Volchie who played under 9 minutes the other night. Harrold also hasn't played in months, so one practice they aren't going to put him in.

This is Pete DeBoer we're talking about. He'll assuredly do something mind-boggling to get Harrold back in the lineup.

I fear that Fayne may end up getting sat at some point for Harrold.

I think that's almost a guarantee.

I fear if Lou doesn't move a fvcking defenseman out of here already, ending this charade once and for all, I'm gonna lose my fvcking mind.

You really aren't going to be happy at the deadline when he brings in another defenseman... (only half joking about that possibility haha)

So.... where's Harrold's "conditioning stint"?    What a mess.   So, Larsson gets injured and ends up being #9 on the depth chart.   Makes sense.

It's nothing short of infuriating.

There's a strategy?    He was playing, he got hurt, and they have no idea how to clear a roster spot for him, so he'll be making $920 a game until March since they'll be breaking soon anyway.

Sending him to Albany to get his game up to speed was a no-brainer. They can't do it with Harrold/Salvador/Volchenkov. I necessarily don't like that Larsson is in Albany but I don't think it hurts him one bit..

They could conditioning stint Harrold if they wanted to, but they have a roster crunch too.   With Harrold, I'd prefer the conditioning stint that may get him claimed on waivers, if someone was drunk at the time.

There is clearly a strategy - Larsson will be playing in the AHL during the Olympic Break.  I imagine Gelinas and Merrill will be too.

They could get a conditioning stint for Harrold, and they may well end up doing that in the future.

I'd love to say I'd be even remotely shocked if Harrold plays tomorrow, however.....

 

 

We all know DeBoer is absolutely in love with the [insert expletive here] player who shouldn't be on ANY NHL roster and will start him while also giving him 29 minutes.

 

Harrold sucks, DeBoer sucks at managing the lineup, hello early golfing season.

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.

Oh you know Harrold's playing tomorrow. You can write it in pen. Gelinas and Merrill will both be scratched. You can bet your bottom dollar on it.
