The Devils aren't going to IR someone like Volchenkov or Fayne illegally to gain room for Gelinas.  The trouble is I don't see anyone they can trade besides Fayne and I think they kinda need Fayne, even if the coaching staff doesn't feel that way.

if he's not a douche, he should understand. he did everything right and got all the praise he should. people understand numbers games and roster limits - he'll most certainly be back and likely sooner rather than later.

Purely administrative (I hope) or else I'm afraid that Lou has really lost his marbles.  I hope it is the former.

 

A trade is brewing, certainly.  I can't see Gelinas (with 2 pts/2gms) being sent down for good, but then again, the Devils have benched Larsson and YaYo for no apparent reason either, so your guess is as good as mine.

  1. Devils will do something likely tomorrow (Tuesday at the latest) to clear a roster spot for Gelinas to come back.

     
    Expand
  2. This is definitely a temporary thing with Gelinas.

     
    Expand
  3. Devils had to make move today with Salvador back, but it's safe bet Gelinas will be back in time for Tuesday's game. Something else in works

    My guess is it will be a waiver move, but that's not definite. Just my guess.

Relax everyone. We are in a good position. It is very early in the season and we have too many quality defensemen including 2 young studs... Oh my what a problem.

Lou won't screw this up. Let him go slow and make the right move. Time is in his side. We are one injury away from looking really smart about how we constructed our roster.

All of our D men including Harrold are worth something.. And that is very good.

Lou's trying to clear out a defenseman. He just didn't have enough time with Salvador coming back. Maybe it takes a week, maybe a month, but Gelinas will be back. No rush to force something in 24-48 hours.

 

A month?!  They don't have a month.  They have two wins in their first eleven games and finally got a spark last night, they need to not fvck around with this.

yeah things are a little more urgent with this team...we know this team has a better chance of winning with Gelly in the lineup......so we have to find a way to get him in ASAP

I love how Gelinas puts his point shot right on net. Not 5 feet over or wide. Love that.

what is volch possibly worth, or more accurately who needs a PK specialist with a horribly aging skill set.  we need Zids shot and offensive presence, sal is the C, so its fayne or harrold   cant see getting much for harrold   and Id hate to see fayne go   we are going to wind up cutting harrold

 

can we buyout BOTH sal 1.5mil and a-train 1.1 mil  next year and be under the cap?

We still have an amnesty buy out, so yes, but there's absolutely no way that both Sal and Volch get bought out.

Volchenkov, with his deal, is nigh impossible to move.

 

Devils still have one of their compliance buyouts (used the other on Hedberg). Even so, they'd probably be comfortably under the cap. As it is, they're 2-ish million under and the cap is expected to go right back up, so they'll be fine.

Gelinas will be back.  I guarantee it.  No need to get worked up about it.  He'll play against Tampa I'm sure.

So does Tom Gulitti

 

For those expecting a significant trade, think about it this way: if you were another team, who would you want on your team from the Devils? Teams aren't gonna just take garbage, especially now that the cap has gone down. If the Devils want a decent return, I don't know who else they can trade besides Greene. Harrold, Larsson, Fayne won't bring back anything close in value. I also don't see them trading Salvador or Zid, due to one being captain and the other being NJ's best offensive defenseman by far.

 

I'm not saying we should trade Greene, since I think he's the best they've got at the moment, but I would expect either another Tallinder-like trade or else sending Harrold through waivers rather than anything coming our way.
