Can't wait to see the kid play! Does anyone else have a feeling it's a little too soon though? I remember seeing him play for Sarnia the past year and was impressed.

Oh and Brunner makes me mad.

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.

wow I didn't realize Elias tore up the ahl that much.

I wonder if Boucher will get pp time and if so where they put him on it.

Cory Schneider will start in net tonight.

 

Here’s the line combinations and defense pairs from this morning.

 

Forwards: Dainius Zubrus-Travis Zajac-Jaromir Jagr; Reid Boucher-Patrik Elias-Steve Bernier; Damien Brunner-Adam Henrique-Michael Ryder; Tim Sestito-Jacob Josefson-Cam Janssen. Extras: Mattias Tedenby, Andrei Loktionov.

 

Defensemen: Andy Greene-Mark Fayne; Anton Volchenkov-Marek Zidlicky; Eric Gelinas-Jon Merrill; Peter Harrold.

 

Goaltenders: Cory Schneider, Martin Brodeur.

 

 

From TG at Fire and Ice.

 

I like Cam , but seeing him and Sestito on the ice over Adrei Loktianov and Tedenby is really dissapointing.

Seems encouraging.  I wonder whether there was a dead-puck era in the AHL that closely tracked when it started in the NHL.

Tedenby is basically dead weight at this point.  So I could even live with Janssen being in over him.  The chances that Janssen getting into a fight that sparks the team is about the same, if not greater, then Tedenby actually scoring a goal.

Looks like the closest comparable for PPG were Guerin and Sykora. Obviously not necessarily comparable as players, but that's pretty good company to be in.

I really hope the kid can step in and help. I'm afraid it's a little too soon. I hope people can keep their expectations reasonable. I'm waiting for him to go 3 games without scoring and immediately be called a bust.

Ps I know the kid is a goal scorer but heard he's slow or can't skate well.
Little worried do to the quicker nature of the NHL.

Apparently we are just both bored at work.
Great quote tho.
A hat trick..that would be nice
