Zajac for our first rd pick back would be great. JJ is ready.

with a post like this I question if you are secretly a rangers fan.

I hope it's just precautionary.  And besides, it's not as if Zajac has been tearing it up.

he hasnt been tearing it up offensively but thats not even what i look towards zajac to do anymore simply because he never nets up any goals any more.. look to him more so for his play in general defensive etc. face offs

I'm not too worried. I think Josefson's a very capable replacement, especially considering how Zajac's looked recently.

I think whenever a player on this team gets the slightest injury....he will miss more games than usual, just as an excuse to get some other players some game time action.

We have the luxury of having quality NHL players to fill in, so why not use it and give guys an extra day to really get back to 100%, right?

yeah, and its an easy "out" for Deboer to sit a guy he doesnt want to insult (like a veteran)

Maybe that's true...but why would you even take that chance right now when you NEED to start stringing some wins together?  It's not like we're 20 games over .500 where you can play around with the lineup.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

yeah true we do need wins, but maybe the guy sitting will play better than the vet that was playing

Caught an edge, rolled the ankle just a bit, iced it to reduce swelling. Minor, and he'll play tomorrow.

That's what I'm assuming until anyone can prove otherwise. Losing Zajac for a long time would be pretty devastating.


Well he's not playing so it can't be that minor.

I think Elias being out is more of a loss then Zajac.

 

What in the actual fvck has Travis Zajac done this season?

What in the actual fvck has Travis Zajac done this season?

The Devils get 7.3% more shot attempts 5v5 when Zajac's on the ice compared to when he's not (Corsi For% Rel). That's 2nd on the team for forwards after Elias (9.7%) and ahead of Jagr (5.1%). If you count the number of unblocked shot attempts, Zajac at 5v5 helps the Devils get 9.1% more attempts when he's on the ice which is 1st for the forwards (Fenwick For% Rel). Zajac's 5v5 Corsi For% Rel ranks 26th amongst NHL forwards. His 5v5 Fenwick For% Rel ranks 14th amongst NHL forwards. Keep in mind Zajac tends to get tough defensive assignments which makes these numbers that much more impressive. He also starts 35.3% of his shifts in the neutral zone and 34.7% of his shifts in the defensive zone which is 2nd on team after Carter.

 

Zajac is also the only Devil with a Faceoff% above 50 - his is 51%. Amongst the Devils that have taken over 100 faceoffs so far, the next would be Elias at 43.4%, Loktionov at 41.8%, and Henrique at 41.6%.

Elias is the bigger loss, but if Zajac played tonight, things probably would've been a lot different. He consistently pushes the play forward and helps his teammates get shots towards the net.

We can still use his face-offs.  At one point in the game tonight we were 13-28 on face-offs.

Wow, believe it or not I hadn't read that, was just guessing/hoping. Talk about a lucky guess, haha

As for the score tomorrow? I learned a long while ago to not even attempt to predict outcomes :lol:

During the last cup run, I dreamt the night before game 5 of the conference finals that the devils were going to take a 3-0 lead only for the rangers to tie it. I also dreamt that Larsson was going to score the gwg game 2 of the flyers series. I'm not saying I'm psychic, but.

I was quite confused. Did anyone else notice if he skated in the pre-game? I thought I saw him, but it's entirely possible I was mistaken due to Jagr wearing the A.
