i'm going to the game, i may just cheer when they announce devil's scratches, it's a refreshing change.

Haha, actually Opening Night was a refreshing change for me compared to the eight and nine scratches we were announcing around New Year's last year. We needed two screens to list them for crying out loud, they didn't even bother to lower the font anymore :lol:

I like these choices for the call ups. I think Corrente is definitely an improvement on D over Fraser who seems to love making retarded cross ice passes out of our zone that are easily intercepted.

Josefson is a guy I'm really excited to see, but he may not dazzle everyone in his first few NHL games, so I'm trying to keep my expectations low for him. Although I expect him to put a few points up, as long as he's responsible defensively and doesn't hurt us when he's out there, I'll be happy.

I think the reasons why Sestito got the nod over Tedenby, is that we really need a good checking line, not a guy who's defense and backchecking abilities are questionable. I'd love to see Tedenby get called up at some point this year, but I think he absolutely needs the time in the AHL to get bigger, stronger and to whipped into shape as far as his defensive game is concerned. Also, I don't think we'd have room to put Tedenby in the situations where he'd be useful. We don't have room on the 3rd line to fit him and having him on the 4th line isn't where he needs to be. I do feel like if he was put on the PP, he'd be a good fit there just based on the fact that he can deke like no other and that would help us when working the puck down low on the PP, which is something I don't see our PP ever do...

Im happy to see Corrente back with the Devils. Corrente would have been in the line up full time if the devils had the cap space to start the season. I liked what i saw from Sestito last year, looks like he belongs when he plays, good 4th line player.

Josefson will replace Rolston I assume? Will be nice to see how he plays in his first NHL game.

The way i see it..

Corrente > Fraser
Sestito > PL3
Josefson < Rolston (has to be assumed until we see Josefson play in the bigs)

Good to see a lot of centers - or at least players who can take faceoffs. Zajac, Arnott, Zubrus, Josefson, Mair, Pelley, and Sestito all can fill in at center or take face offs if need be.

I would really really like to see Josefson step up his game. I think him and Tedenby are going to be great great players a little bit down the road.
