NJ Fans,

With 9 Forwards who are absolute locks (Elias, Zubrus, Gionta, Parise, Zajac, Langs, Pando, Madden, Brylin), and 7 Defensemen (Martin, White, Visnevsky, Rachunek, Matvichuk, Greene, Oduya)...

Who will the other 5 roster slots go to (3 F's needed, and 2 Scratch players, F or D)?

I've listed the popular prospects and guys who have signed contracts.

Select 5 (3 Forward's Minimum).

This is my first attempt at a poll, so hopefully this is done correctly. If not, I apologize. If it is done incorrectly, maybe someone else can fix it or re-list the topic.

Thanks!

I only see four worthy of making the cut with the roster as is, no room for Pelley on the big club and sadly Rupp's gonna make this team.....

Rupp was actually really effective last year with the limited role he had, IMO.

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.

It's not Rupp's fault when he's put into a situation where he can't succeed.

He's totally different from when we had him the first time.

I'm not BLAMING the guy for not being any good in front of the net... I'm just saying he's not... the blame goes to the people who told him to go out there and try to fulfill a role he's incapable of doing, you know it's like asking Clown to feel good about one of his teams... you can try till you're blue in the face... but ain't gonna happen!

The guys that interest me the most are Clarkson and Viuhkola. It will be fun to see how Clarkson performs over an entire season (assuming he makes the cut). However, with the top 2 lines likely set, Clarkson will probably be relegated to 3rd and 4th line duty with possible time on the 1st or 2nd PP unit.

So I wouldn't expect him to have as good a campaign as say, Zajac, but it might not be out of the question to expect 30 points (maybe even 15-20 goals).

Viuhkola is the wild card, for my money, who I guess signed a deal with NJ in hopes of making the big club (not the minors). If he is as talented as some people say, he could really provide a nice 4th line center option, with a potential to play center on any line (if needed or given the chance). I'd much rather see this guy at center than Mike Rupp, who is better as a winger.

A line like Clarkson-Viuhkola-Asham would be a nice skilled/hard hitting 4th line that would be able to play more than 3 minutes a game.

But I don't know what his chances are. If Marshall doesn't make the cut, I'd say very good. If Marhsall does make it, maybe not so good. IMO, Janseen, Rupp, Asham are all near-locks, with Clarkson, Marshall, and Viuhkola on the bubble. Most people feel Clarkson will make it, which leaves only one slot for those last 2 guys.

When is hockey going to start already!!

That and Janssen has his fancy new contract so he should be on that list. Funny thing about it though is that we also have Asham who is basically a Janssen style player with more skill...it would be interesting to see them on a line together...switch Janssen to LW and see if he can learn some offence from Asham....just a thought :D

I sill think Asham would be best suited to play shutdown with Madden and Pando, but thats a discussion for another thread :D

My selection is easy for me. Rupp, Janssen Asham will definatly be on the club. I believe Clarksonn would make the final cut. Hes definatly worthy of playing on the team. I dont think past those 4 anyone is a clear cut but Viuhkola is the best choice i believe, if not its Pelley.

Agreed. Clarkson is a classic devils mold player.

Rupp- Yes, he should have some linemates that can finally create some offense.
Janssen Yes, he brings energy that no one else can bring.
Asham- Yes we had just signed him and I think he is very underated will fit great on the 4th or sometims 3rd
Marshall- No, too old, just isnt good enough. Great leadership for Lowell
Clarkson- Yes, hits hard and I think he will surprise and score quite a few goals
Pelley- No needs some more time, will replace Madden in a few years
Viuhkola- Yes, it should be interesting with him. 3rd, 4th line player who is unkown to the rest of the league
Bergfors - No not ready yet, hopefully next season
Tallackson- No hes been givin chances a few times and never did anything that stands out
Vrana - No dont know much about him
Fraser- No keep him in Lowell

Ide go with Rupp, Asham, Marshall. If Marshall struggles early in the season, or shows that he just doesnt have it anymore, send him down, call up Clarkson

In fairness to Marshall, the reason he wasn't called up is that his 760,000 salary would've put us over the cap.

Oh, and he sucked balls in 06 and was most likely the worst forward in the league that season.

He also can only play one forward position, whereas Rupp, Asham, and Viuhkola can play multiple positions.
