The correct choices IMO.  I really hope Greene stays when he is a FA after next season.  I see no reason for Lou not to keep him.

Andy Greene is overqualified for his award. In 2010 it was a good award for him, but not this year. That award has historically gone to a Pandolfo or a Brylin type. Greene is the real deal and an MVP candidate.

 

Having said that, happy he was rewarded.

To a degree you could say he is unsung 'around the league' given the disgraceful way he was overlooked by team USA.  He certainly isn't unsung by Devil fans or the staff at this point though.

He'll get rewarded with a big fat "C" hopefully next season.

This, the award was perfect for this reason. Though, I kind of agree with DR33 - enough already, we know how good he is.

Also, it would have been so Lou if he fired DeBoer mid-speech.

It concerns me that this award for carter goes towards him being re-signed. While I don't hate the idea, I am hoping for him and Bernier to be replaced with some combo of josefson, sislo, Boucher, and matteau.

I'll take Carter back.  Bernier I could take or leave.  Gio has to go as he is completely useless.

I'm with the point that Carter can come back, he has really become a "Pandolfo" like player, minus the constant PK'ing that Pandolfo did a lot of.  Carter yay, Bernier and Gionta, nay nay.  Greene should be captain as long as Lou can show Salvador the door.  At this point I'd much rather see Salvador go than Volchenkov.  As for Jagr, absolutely yes.  He has been healthy all year long and that's phenomenal for a 42 year old.  Hopefully his training regimen keeps him going strong for next year as well....It makes me really happy that we can bring in a player such as Jagr and have him enjoy playing here moreso than Philly, Dallas, or Boston.  That's if he comes back.

Agreed.

And I wouldn't mind seeing the little engine use could replaced by a serviceable big body.

this carter/pandolfo talk always makes me laugh. i think it's the fact that it's a bottom 6 guy wearing #20.

 

pando's strength was his defensive play and PK. he wasn't much on the cycle and i always felt he didn't know where to be in the offensive zone which was funny considering that he was an offensive player in college.

 

carter is hardly used in a PK role, but can cycle effectively and basically doesn't lose his position in the defensive zone.

 

gionta hasn't been as bad as in years past and i think he's reached "mascot" status but i don't want to be complaining about him next year and i just have a feeling that we will be (especially with his brother back playing wing which is something i can 100% see lou doing).
