Let's make an Anddrew Jaskcon appreciation thread.

I don't know why we're picking "Brunner or Ryder", like we have 4 stacked lines of great players throughout or something. There were a couple games we had Stephen Gionta on the 2nd line playing with Elias. Hell, who knows where Ryane Clowe stands going into next season... We were even using Gelinas a winger. This is the New Jersey Devils offensive depth chart, and it's reeeeeeally bad.

We absolutely need first line offensive talent so that the move of Ryder/Brunner to the 3rd line can be made, no-brainer. Until then, there's no use debating which one we could do without, because we need everyone we can, just to still be "not good enough" haha... I may be in the minority here but I think we still need both players going into next season.

Neither contract is really that bad; the problem is not Brunner or Ryder, it's that we needed them to be the 1st liners that they really aren't. We're not all crapping on Zubrus, are we? No. But why not? Out of the 3, he was the least value for money...

How do you define value? Zubrus didn't have a great season but he isn't paid just to score goals, like Ryder and Brunner.

And to add to your other comment... You're wrong. They're getting top-6 minutes and barely playing better than AHLers. I would rather Reid Boucher than Michael Ryder playing on a top line any day of the week. Ryder's incredibly useless unless he has a top notch center able to gift him some open looks. He isn't a very talented player, and he doesn't belong anywhere on this team. You want him to play the third line? Good luck having him play in a checking role. The dude is slower than Cam freakin Janssen.

After the last month of the season Id take Brunner over Ryder a million times over. Even disregarding the contract; Ryder looked slow and lazy. He has a wicked shot, that's about it. Reminds me of a Rolston (who hits the glass less, I suppose).

Yeah red; we know you didn't get your major in English but if you could at least edit the title it'll stop making my head hurt.
