I feel horrible for Josefson. He doesn't deserve this at all. It's a shame that the Devils would keep him around as the 14th forward all year instead of giving him a shot or trying to get him through waivers. It's clear he has no future here but he deserves to get a chance somewhere else. I know that they can't be giving away the little forward depth they have, but I just feel for this kid.

 

Also, if they are going to make a call up, I would've rather have seen Sislo who is having a great year and can score (.412 G/GP). I get that they want a "4th line guy" in Sestito, but seriously, at least call up someone who is scoring goals.

I'm fine with Merrill over Volch. Let the kids take their licks against the toughest team in the league.

@TGfireandice: Devs' lines today: Ruutu-Zajac-Jagr; Henrique-Elias-Ryder; Clowe-Josefson-Zubrus; Sestito-Gionta-Brunner. Bernier is the extra.

@TGfireandice: So looks like Josefson will get a chance as the 3rd line center. Brunner dropped to 4th line. Bernier (no goals in 41 games) odd man out.

Are there any other high draft picks in recent memory that sat a lot in their first couple of years with the main club that eventually went on to be good players?  I'm sure there are a few.

 

Also, it's somewhat encouraging that Josefson has remained on the Devils' roster.  You could tell the team had lost all confidence in Tedenby after banishing him to Albany.  You would think that if they felt the same way about Josefson, they would have done the same thing to him.  Also encouraging that Josefson has said that he's still committed to the NHL and doesn't have any plans to bolt to Sweden or the KHL after this season.

I think it is imperative the Devils give him a really good look for the last 10+ games with non 4th line linemates. It starts tonight, and hopefully it continues. 

 

With Brunner getting scratched, I really hope Gelinas gets time on the first PP unit. If teams want to over-commit to Jagr and company down low, make them pay with Gelinas. Granted there doesn't seem to be anyone in that group that would want to stand in front and make life difficult for a goalie.

Many people on the boards believe that Josefson is done here, has no future here, etc.  I would be way more convinced of this if we still had Loktionov, but we don't, Zajac, Henrique/Elias, and Josefson are the future centers of the team IMO.   Yayo has a great chance to stick in this lineup, he just needs to impress tonight and play well on the 3rd line tonight.  I will be furious if DeBoer benches him at some point tonight, give him a chance.

I like the lineup changes made for tonight's game. I think Cory's ready for his bounce-back. I think Volchenkov's looked great the past few weeks (and playing super physical in every game it seems like). Bernier hasn't done diddly squat but be at the right place at the time but not know how to score on an empty net. Josefson might bring the speed and creativity that sparks Ryder. And although I was skeptical at first, Gelinas as the 7th D-man DOES make sense. I like the moves and am actually looking forward to tonight, for once.

I'll be the guy to bring a negative spin on this JJ thing - you know he's getting MAYBE the first period in that 3rd line slot before Gionta gets bumped up.

 

Bleh.  PDB,  you're a man of mystery.

I wanted Bernier to come out of the lineup for awhile. But, the one person in the world that I wouldn't want him to come out for is probably Tim Sestito.

 

JJ I want to see if there is anything there in our last 14 games. Play him.

marty for the rangers - sure, why not. cory let in a bad goal in a win where he otherwise played ok. swap out. just like they do when it happens to marty.

 

and yes, i know there's back to back and cory will almost certainly get toronto. but last week, pdb announced that before both FL/TB games. not today.

 

different strokes for different folks.
