The locker room wants to win, and knows Schneider gives you that on a day in, day out basis. Marty knows that too, hence very little or no complaining from him. I really think he's set to retire.

Honestly, Daniel, why do you think Marty is set to retire? His words don't say that and if he is set to retire are the words just to cause trouble?

This will be four games in a row he hasn't played, and it's clear that for a team that needs as many points as it can get, they want to go with someone else. He won't want to be a back up on the Devils for another year, and it can't see another team that has any use for him.

Lol so I guess all of the people complaining about Marty getting starts can zip up now. I wonder what they'll complain about next.

Believe me, won't change a thing.

I suppose I should've written that if they make decisions based on Marty's feelings and what the rest of the room feels, then they have an OB-CC-mentality and that needs to go.

Harrold playing over anyone is pathetic. He's a 7th d-man at best.

You don't love Harrold over Larsson, but Peter brings some skills that will help the Devils. Very good skater. He can skate himself out of trouble and will help the transition game.

I've seen two seperate interpretations of the Olympic rules - one says that Larsson would have to stay in the AHL (since he is so close to the 87 day limit), the other says he wouldn't.

I wonder if it's a rule you can try to petition for an exception on, even if your player violated the rule.

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.

Regardless of the rule, we need Larsson up here as he was playing at a high level prior to getting hurt/sent down, and Larsson needs to continue to see NHL ice and develop. Being yanked around certainly is not helping his growth.

I want Larsson playing through the Olympic break because he already missed 6 weeks this year.  He should be called up after the Olympic break when practices start.

He is a terrific depth defenseman and incredibly reliable even if his skillet is limited. Has great intangibles too according to Deboer.

DeBoer has no choice on whether Harrold plays tonight, unless he wants to dress Josefson and go with 5 defensemen.

I would not be opposed to trying Gelinas at wing.  Could it hurt?

Just let him work on his game in the AHL. He'll be back soon enough. As Pete said (paraphrase), "he needs to be and can be more than just a good shot."

I'm actually not opposed to the idea, even long term. Within 2-3 years the Devils foundation of the D could include Greene, Larsson, Merrill, Severson, and Santini. Then they have a lot of guys that could be solid on the 3rd pair like Helgeson, Scarlett, and Gedig. Factor in them probably having 1 or 2 veteran guys and things get a bit crowded and they don't really have much coming up in terms of forward prospects. Play him on the wing at EV and the point on the PP.

That's fine, but don't expect the team to be much better with whatever return we get, or whoever replaces him from within.

He's not really the problem with the team. When you're among the best in the league in goals against and shots against, all six of your defenseman must be doing something right.

I guess you could say it would make room for Larsson or Gelinas, which will help the offense. But probably not enough to change the fact that the team will often be required to give up only 1 goal a game to get 2 points.
