Lamoriello: "It's time to give Reid a look."


    Lamoriello made it sound like Boucher will play in a top 9 role tonight.

Gotta say im surprised. I hope he gets top minutes, preferably with Elias and/or henrique.

I guess he can't be worse than Brunner.

intriguing - he's in for carter. i imagine if henrique can't go, that's tedenby's spot.

brunner-elias-bernier

boucher-loktionov-ryder

tedenby-josefson-janssen

 

that's a bit of a mismash but we'll see what we get.

Well, he is tearing up the AHL - 7th in the league in shots, on pace for 39 goals in an 80 game season - still didn't expect this unless he's getting an extended look.

Why not?  Guess they're not going to wait as long for some of the current crew to get it going as we thought.  Could be a nice jolt.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Might as well give him a look, but I don't think he's ready for a full time role yet.

good. And per TG loktionov looks like he's scratched along with tedenby.

That should rile the feathers of those clamoring for a more offensively gifted 4th line.

Love this. Really hope it works and helps jumpstart the scoring. Smart to put him with a guy like Patty who can possibly cover for him defensively. Still don't get Janssen/Sestito playing over Lokti but whatever. Happy they're at least trying something new.

Kind of nervous that we're going to get  a wet blanket thrown on our hopes that Boucher is legitimate NHLer.

Me too.  I keep hearing that "Boucher is a beast" kind of mentality from a lot of fans but until he has proven himself that means nothing.

 

I really hope he does well.

He's beating up the AHL at age 20.  If anything keeps him from the NHL it's going to be defense/board play and that sort of thing.  He's going to be able to score goals, though.

Happy a player was called up from the AHL that can actually help (sorry Sestito). 

 

Not to beat a deadhorse, but really don't get the scratches. In no universe should Sestito be playing over Loktionov, and looking at the Habs lineup, no reason for Janssen over Tedenby. I'd love to understand the point of tonight's 4th line.

 

Edit: Guess it is Josefson being scratched instead of Loktionov. Point still stands.

A few comparisons, if you will, to age 20 Devils (in their Y+3 draft year) in the AHL:

 

Reid Boucher:  21 GP, 10 G, 8 A, 18 P

 

 

Nicklas Bergfors:  66 GP, 12 G, 15 A, 27 P

Pierre Dagenais:  69 GP, 17 G, 13 A, 30 P

Patrik Elias:  57 GP, 24 G, 43 A, 67 P

Jiri Bicek:  79 GP, 15 G, 45 A, 60 P

Petr Sykora:  43 GP, 20 G, 25 A, 45 P

Bill Guerin:  22 GP, 13 G, 10 A, 23 P

Vadim Sharifjianov:  70 GP, 14 G, 27 A, 41 P

 

Don't have shots on goal data for any of these besides Bergfors, but yeah.

hope the kid provides a needed spark. but i'll be interested to see how he plays in the D zone, particularly how he handles those breakout passes. if he can do that, he can stay awhile
