Gelinas has played awful for a bit now. It'll be good for him to mentally reset himself against lesser competition.

His shot will be missed but he needs to get back to playing within himself and not force plays.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

I love the guy and wish he would've helped himself out of this situation. I'd he gets his old play back then I'm all for it

Just sucks when you have a rather useless player in Sal taking opportunities from others

About time I think. He needs a break.

And I'd prefer he be sent down and spend some time playing some 'practice' games, rather than being a healthy scratch and sitting up in the box.

It's just a shame Volch is his replacement.. Talk about an opposite type of player.

Sent down is better than scratched, but they need to make a trade and get him back, especially when Larsson is healthy and they can put them together again.

This will be good for Gelinas.. I fully support the move and think he needs some time in the A.. He's looked pretty bad recently and I don't expect a rookie to just figure it out against the best in the world.. It's like sending a hitter in baseball down to build his confidence and get him back to form.. The team will survive without Eric

I'm totally okay with this since Gelinas has been a bit frustrating as of late, but I just wish our veterans were held to the same standard that our young defensemen are.

It's just going to be a sh!t show with both Volch and Sal in the lineup.

At least Merrill is still here. I hope I never have to watch Harrold up here again

I hope they bring him back up when Larsson gets healthy.

I can't see how Merrill is still here.

We need to ship Volchenkov out. Of the defensemen to be sent down for him, yes, I guess Gelly is the right choice, but a promising young defensemen shouldn't be sent down to bring back a progress stopper. Trade him for a bag of pucks as you did Tallinder, Lou.

i dont think volch is as bad or useless as everyone tried to make him out to be.. he plays a hard hitting physical defensive role which is what this team needs

I agree with the first part, we don't need to send him out because his play is atrocious, but we need to send him out, because of our defensemen, he's the least important going forward and our young guys need to develop and learn the Devils way

They are just doing a bunch of bizarre things right now.    Lou needs to clear this roster up so he doesn't have 26 guys for 23 spots

I think this will help him. I just hate how they keep volch and salvador and give them so much time eventhough they dont bring what we need.
Fayne has also been playing well defensively and id hate to see him leave after the season cause hes sick of that bullsh!t.

We cant start next season with those 2 and we shouldnt have started this one either.

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
