I want to know why no one has talked about Havelid's play. AWFUL all series. One of Lou's worst pickup's ever. His play on Carolina's tying goal was mind-bogglingly bad. Also a prime suspect for Carolina's dominance during their home games.

Havelid was pretty solid and responsible throughout the series. Playing with Greene didn't help him in game 7.

I would be more concerned about the play of White and Mottau in the last two games.

I expect Havelid to be re-signed. It usually takes a few months to blend into the systems for a defensemen (e.g. Salvador).

Not awful... he was steady

Worth giving up on Salmela... obviously no now

he's just not the answer to any question the Devils have going forward

"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."

I didn't think his play was worse than any of the other defense men. Pretty much all of them would cough the puck up under the slightest amount of pressure.

I dunno.... I think pretty much every D the Lou picks up at the deadline seems to be just as horrible.

We should make a list of terrible D-men picked up near the deadline that turned out to be wastes of oxygen.

Housley comes to mind.

You have not been reading my posts since the day Lou traded for this POS. I have noticed Havelid's play during the regular season and playoffs but no one really listened until seeing it for themselves. Havelid sucks and I hope we never see him again. He was way out of position on the game tying goal by Jokinen and he has been sh!t his whole time here. This Devils team and defense was doing fine without him and then he started to play and the Devils started to lose and play like sh!t with no chemistry among the dmen. Havelid even made salvador play like sh!t when they were paired up. Havelid is just awful period especially in that playoff series and say bye-bye to him for good.

Don't count on it Manta. No way Lou resigns Havelid. there will be better dmen in FA. Greene playing with Havelid didn't help. Playing with Salvador didn't help for Havelid's case. Havelid was a solid POS. He was flat out terrible and a bust. Sorry.

I do agree the play of White and Mottau was bad in the last two games of the series.

I never had a problem with him until that game tying goal. How you can allow a hash mark to hash mark pass is beyond me and really inexcusable. Those passes just don't get through in the NHL.

It wasn't a bad pickup regardless. Havelid was a fine defenseman in Atlanta. These things just haven't worked out for Lou lately.

+1

Even in the handful of season games Havelid played with New Jersey, he did some pretty stupid things. Don't get me wrong he has done some good things. But it seems like every time a bad goal goes in at the worst time possible, he is the one on the ice either out of position or not blocking shots. The tying goal in game 7 could of been avoided if it wasn't for him, and a sleeping defense.

This team needs a more solid defense. It seems before Havelid came in the D was working rather well. Havelid just threw off the balance and chemistry of the defensive lines.

Just my opinion

I think we should try to get Mike Peluso out of retirement to play defense for us.

Dave Ellett. He never gets talked about because he came in the Gilmour deal.

havelid is awful... i said this in another post...

"Hard on him or not... the devils were 7-7-1 with him during the regular season... sure thats .500 but without him the devils were 44-20-3.. which is a whole lot better than .500


chew on that..... "

He played maybe one good game for the devils this year....

also note that the devils had their 2 worst games of the season with havelid on the ice...

7-3 loss to NYI
6-1 loss to PIT

he is terrible. Worst pick up by lou i think in a long time.

Ellett wasn't all that terrible. Was definitely a throw in, but I don't remember him playing poorly.

That team should have went to the finals...

Havlid did seem to be stuck in one place all the time. But nothing can compare with big, dumb, lost, Whitey.
