True but I don't think an additional 3-4 minutes is a huge deal.

 

3-4 minutes a game becomes a big deal. Since you play that much more over a longer period of time. You can't score if you're not on the ice. If you consistently take that time away from a better player to give to an inferior one, you will get less goals overall.

Well you can simply take away minutes from the CBGB line as well.

that line averages 10 minutes a game- you want to drop them down to 5 ish? People are already complaining about Pete playing the top lines too much...

I'm talking about Loktionov and only Loktionov.  Give Gionta like 8 minutes.  And give Loktionov like 15 minutes.  That way, the whole line can get a good amount of ice time, and not 2/3 of it.

Other then a tap in goal, Loktionov really wasn't playing that well. Boucher will be back up after the Olympic break and NJ will assess if they need to make a move.

Kind of irrelevant. He got that goal and was decent enough. What more could you ask in 5-6 min of hockey? Once again the mid game line changes did nothing. Stephen Gionta was continuing to throw pucks at teammates' feet and was having trouble corralling a pass, yet he gets moved up to the second line, which everyone knows will never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever be a good move. I don't think that line had a good shift after.

At the very least Gelinas needs to be in the lineup after the Olympic break. This team needs every goal it can possibly get.

Agreed.  We're 0-12 on the PP since sending him down.

LOL. Deb. That's great. This organization has absolutely zero accountability from top to bottom and everyone in it knows it. Brooks was spot on in his article a month or two back.

If the Devils struggle to pick up points in 4 games after the break, does Jagr request a trade?

The idea of a trade at this point is starting to scare me. I'm afraid that Lou still thinks it's 2000 and we're a Mogilny trade away from being a Cup team. Unfortunately he'll end up trading someone like Gelinas, a young player that has provided actual documented help on the offense, for someone like Erat.

My hope among hopes is that Lou gets rid of Salvador. And it's not because I think he's a bad as people think. Even if Salvador is actually a "shut down defenseman", the team has plenty of those guys, and needs to score some fvcking goals. Even the most deluded Salvador advocate realizes he doesn't contribute to that at all.

If Lou trades Gelinas for Martin fvcking Erat, I'd be leading the lynch mob to his office. And I'm the biggest Lou guy there is.
