I really don't know what there is for him to learn down there.   He is what he is, he'll dominate there offensively and play meh D against worse players as opposed to dodgy D against better players.

 

This is something that should be worked on at this level, but they have too many freaking players and it forces moves.

100% agree.

We seem to keep taking players out of their learning curve right at the crucial point where they can actually learn something.

Very frustrating.

Finally, Salvador, Volchenkov, and Janssen in the lineup together.

Looks like we're scoring 5 tonight.

@TGfireandice: Lamoriello on Gelinas: "We feel it’s the best thing for him right now. It could be short-term. It just depends upon on how he handles it.” @TGFireandice: Lamoriello stressed what's happened with Gelinas is "a normal process" with young defensemen. @TGfireandice: Lamoriello: "We’re trying to pro-act rather than see (his play) slip too much and (then) get him right back.”


Sounds like this could just be a short-term thing for confidence.

@TGfireandice: DeBoer said Merrill has been "more consistent" than Gelinas, but they'r'e different types of defensemen.

i dont think they will just leave him down there... especially for very long, he brings too much to the table with his offense

Confidence? Something tells me Gelinas is not lacking confidence. If he could speak freely, I believe he would say he is better than most of the D on the team.

I can't see anyway a trade isn't imminent, any chance Larsson and Fayne get dealt in a package(maybe Kincaid) for a middle six forward? Ladd? Somehow Kane? Moulson?

I don't think Lou ever wanted to send Gelinas down when he was healthy, but there really isn't a good option right now. Gelinas has been awful in his own end, and there hasn't been much offense from him either lately.

 

I saw some people commenting on TG's tweets saying it should be Merrill going down, but that's ridiculous. Merrill doesnt bring the offense Gelinas does, but he has been a lot better the last 8-9 games.

 

Everyone is excited about the potential for Gelinas, but the Gelinas of the last few weeks is not the one you want to see in the lineup.

 

I wish he got an opportunity on the first PP unit instead of Greene the last few weeks, but oh well.

sounds like Lou is pressing to make room for all his half-assed vets.  Cut bait dude -- just cut bate on the old farts.

 

My ENTIRE MO has been to support old farts and all that they have to offer.  Well seeing things from the same clear sideline - these vets blow.  Whatever <_<  It just looks a heck of a lot like mealy mouthed coaching giving old fvckers who kind of never could play top line hockey every freaking chance to ruin the dammteama&*(#%^&*)$%Y^@$%&*) -- that's just where I'm at now....  it's not easy to find my rose-coloreds  :rant:

I don't mind Gelinas being sent down on a short stint to gain some confidence back. Having that option is a bit of a luxury.

Move is good for gelly. He needs to find his game again and get confidence back. As for devils it just makes the D slower but hopefully volch will bring his game tonight


Everytime he starts playing a little poorly or the league adapts to him he will be sent back to the minors? Makes no sense.

The idea is he will get more comfortable, gain consistency and confidence, and come back a better player.

I'm not too worried. Unsure if it was better to send him down over Merrill, but I think the difference between them isn't huge, so it's not that big a deal. Will be pissed if he's not back in a reasonable amount of time to get another chance though.

Like i said i dont mind that move too much as long its short term but the roster management from Lou and Deboer has been horrible in the last few years. Obviously not as if everything they do is bad but theres moves they did that were clearly not the right thing to do.

Either messing up a players confidence, mishandling roster putting the team in trouble (have to play a game a man down, losing players through waivers for nothing, guys knowing a guy is getting traded once another one is coming off injury cause they are over limit, Burning a year a matteau's contract for nothing. Slapping the C on one of our worst player making him unbenchable Etc etc)

Of course every teams have to deal with these situation but seeing young players sitting who are cleaaaarrrrllllyyyy playing better than other vets getting away with murder is a regular thing in NJ now.

I simply feel bad for so many guys, fayne and larsson especially. It may not be a big deal but i really felt bad when deboer benched larsson when it was his one and only chance to play against Lidstrom and played a sh!tty vet instead, larsson wasnt playing that bad either at that time.
