I don't mean to be a buzzkill, because I really do hope Reid can do some damage at the NHL level, but it really bothers me that Josefson is the one that gets scratched because of this. If anyone, Josefson is the guy who deserves a chance playing in the top 6 this year. I don't know what it is about DeBoer, but it really seems like he won't give some players the opportunities they deserve.

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. 

 

i was more dissapointed with Loktianov sitting, although i still feel Tednby can improve if given the chance. What is Sestito going to bring?

 

 

Quote of the month:
 

Boucher said Lamoriello told him "remember there's two zones." Elias pointed out "there's three."

 

Amazing

 

Actually this is why I love patty ...

@TGfireandice: Elias on Boucher: "Let’s not put pressure on him. We just need a hat trick. That’s all.”

 

Double Amazing

He isnt scratched, he is playing that vital role of player on the 4th line who can play hockey.

And he's still running Janssen and Sestito out there. It's really inexplicable. There aren't two more useless hockey players on planet earth than Can Janssen and Tim Sestito.

I don't really see what Josefson has done to merit a role in the top 6.  Playing, sure (although those territorial numbers are kinda ugly, and they're not Cam Janssen's fault either).  Top 6?  Josefson hasn't demonstrated the offensive ability for that.

I'm confused as to why anyone sticks up for Josefson or Tedenby.
They just take up space.

They take up space where they should. Not in the top 6. :)

Josefson looked so good for a while there, too.  Really had high hopes for him to become a solid 3C / 2C when necessary.  Now it's looking like he might not even stick on a 4th line.

 

And yeah, Tedenby's pretty useless.  Two first round busts, oh well.

Disagree on Josefson. I don't think it's a coincidence that the PK has been better with JJ on it than Gio. Teds I can take or leave.

yeah I think josefson has looked solid in his limited minutes despite playing with rocks in either side of him.

If lokti isn't in jj deserves some 3rd line minutes.

The notion that a fight between two players, one from each team, can somehow be used to spark *your* team to perform better is so completely absurd it boggles the mind.

You'd be surprised. Non-staged fights that result from things coming to a head in a game can have a real rallying effect on a team. It can also serve as a 'release valve' if things are getting too chippy.

The point was to emphasize that Tedenby is useless, not that sparking a team is real or not. 

 

Someone tried to quantify the pumping up effect, and found there was no corolation, for what it's worth.

The idea is that since both teams are involved in the fight, it's not possible for both teams to benefit from it.
