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.
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.
