They say bergfors is the "name to watch out for" for the devils this year...

Thought it was worth posting.

Also say Rolston is due for a good year and Elias is due for a worse year than last.

Better than the Hockey News' Devils prediction last season... they said to keep an eye out for Ivan Khomutov as a possible 4th line player for the Devils. :blink:

Thanks for noting it, but I can't read it... it's an Insider article.

Oh crap--if ESPN is talking about the Devils and they're saying something other than "this is the year they're finally not going to make the playoffs"...maybe we won't actually make the playoffs...

The celebration starts! The New Jersey Devils for the third time in their history, have won the Stanley Cup. The Devils 3, the Ducks 0. Devils, Stanley Cup Champions!

I'm, hoping Bergfors can have a 20-25-45 season. But that might be a little optimistic

I'm hoping/expecting for more like 12-22-34 in his rookie season.

Im really hoping Nik is given second line ice time and some time on the PP this year, the clip devs4life posted shows he has the offensive ifts to sucseed, the speed of the hands and his skating are excellnt, and the way he got that shot off was pretty impressive.

I would hope he gets 15 goals 20 assists next year, but that dose make you wonder about the drop off from Gionta's production and how this team is going to pick up the slack in other areas, and i think most will be looking at Mr Rolston.

I'd be very happy with 15 goals and 20 assists.

Bergfors has some skill, but it seems a bit silly to think he'll pick up Gionta's 20 goals in his first year... I'd expect something more along the lines of 13-20-33... (Remember, parise was only 14-18-32... so....)

Yeah but Parise was on the 4th line most of the year, I would think/hope Bergfors is on the second. I'd like to see something like 17 and 25 (Zajac's rookie numbers)

I think playing with Elias and Rolston he would get numbers in the 20g 25a range.. I don't think that's unreasonable. I mean he really didnt play with anyone his 4 years down in lowell with Elias's talent. So lets see what happens.

I think that is what Lou and Conte were thinking too, based on some of their comments last year.

If Elias takes him under his wing, he can put up some pretty good numbers in his rookie year.

Bergfors has got to be chomping at the bit. Especially because he's had small doses of the NHL. IMO, in his VERY limited amount of ice time he looked good

If he gets a good start and builds some confidence, he can do a lot of good things for the team. I want that all-Swede line to become reality.
