Ryder is getting his shots, not worried about him next year in the slightest. You want to move one of those guys, fine, but you've got exactly 0 coming up behind them unless you want to move Boucher to RW.
You're right but I'm just at the point where I'm frustrated with the lack of "puck luck" for Ryder and the Devils as a whole over the past 2 years. As much as the Leafs seem to be the outlier to FF% and making the playoffs, the Devils are on the opposite end of the spectrum of that which is getting old. I'd certainly take Ryder over Brunner, but I feel like Ryder would be the easier guy to move.
I certainly don't fault Lou at all for those moves, I think they were solid. Just disappointed in the players.
what do you think about splitting the Greene-Fayne pairing? I know it won't happen but I just feel like if their not on the ice we have major blue line liabilities with any combination of Salvador Merrill gelinas and zidlicky.
Then in big d zone shifts or protecting a lead you can go back to Greene-Fayne.
I'd rather keep Greene-Fayne together. Wish Larsson would come back up even if was at the expense of Gelinas.
Not sure about that. I am too lazy to look ut up, but how close is he to losing his waiver eligibility? They might want that flexibility to start next season.
According to CapGeek's waiver calculator, Larsson is exempt for a remaining year or 16 NHL games.
Would any of you seriously consider converting Gelinas to a forward position?
He's so awful defensively - I'm worried he's going to become the next Marc-Andre Bergeron (aka, PP specialist that is nothing but a liability on D).
I don't think it could hurt especially given the abundance of D coming up and the lack of F's.
RIP Pat Burns -- RIP Alexander Vasyunov and Lokomotiv Yaroslavl
