NEWARK— Adam Larsson is back with the Devils and back in a familiar spot on defense alongside Eric Gelinas.

An emergency recall from Albany (AHL) because defenseman Jon Merrill is out after being struck in the face by a deflected shot, Larsson said he was happy to be back after playing 32 games in the minors.

“You’re always happy when you get the call. You always want to be up here and be a part of it. I’m really glad to be back here,” Larsson said.

“I’ve been here for three years so I pretty much know everybody here. Of course, I’m glad to be back with Geli. We played pretty good when we played together last time.”

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

For Larsson to be back means that we officially believe that "we're out of the playoffs" because DeBonehead never played him otherwise...or, pratically speaking, it is because Merrill and Salvador are on IR...

The last few home games when Salvador was announced during the scratched list you could hear the cheers coming from the crowd.

 Yeah it's wrong, you never cheer an injury.  I don't care how much of a fan you are or how much the players sucks.

I mean you don't keep players who don't want to be here.  I.E. Ilya Kovalsuck.  But I think if Larsson had asked for a trade, LL would have laughed in his face.  We're the team that gave him a chance to be in the NHL and he still has to prove that he's still improving his game.

Yeah this. I've been all for bringing Larsson up and wondering why the hell he's in the AHL at all but let's not pretend like he's some hot commodity or that he has just dominated in the NHL and is in Albany for absolutely no reason and that there is no debate that he should be on the roster. For that matter, let's also not pretend that he has attained any leverage against the Devils.

 Really tough to do that when you are stuck in the AHL, while 4 other less worthy players are given an opportunity and you are not!!!

Larsson better be staying for the rest of the year...

 Lets not pretend that he is not better than half of the D men now on the roster!!

He's 21 playing in the AHL. What reason does he have to be disgruntled?

When was he not given an opportunity? He played 21 games in the NHL this year and got hurt, then got sent down for roster limit reasons. All of that playing time in the AHL was probably great for his confidence and development.

That's beside the point I was making. The assertion was that the Devils should be grateful that Larsson isn't making demands.
