So this guy thinks that Boucher deserves to play more because of non-scoring stats from two games, and possession stats from one game? And because Boucher has been 'heavily relied upon' throughout his amateur/AHL career? That's borderline idiotic. Should we also decrease the playing time of all our players who didn't play well yesterday? When could Boucher have played more even? How would the coaches know what his possession stats would end up being, with enough time to give him significantly more playing time?

It's not that Boucher isn't getting minutes, it's that Zubrus and company are getting more. Kids created some offense. Give him more time

What would terms on St. Louis be? I wouldn't be opposed to him. 2 year deal would buy time for the #7 pick and other prospects to develop and give the Devils a fighting chance.

Game sucked tonight. However, got to meet some of the Devils post game. A friend of a friend is one of the head security guards at the Rock. Brought is down outside the family room and got to meet with a number of Devils.

Schneider is an awesome dude. Signed my ticket stub, and a few things for some other people. I mentioned to him he should definitely be in the running for the Vezina and he replied "I think you've got to be in the playoffs to pull that in". Told him to keep it up we need to get some goals for you. He seemed to really appreciate the support.

Greene walked past and signed too, can't believe he's an NHL defensemen just based off his frame. Buddy of mine mentioned he should be the next captain and laughed it off.

Merrill is a cool guy and seems like a real professional but still has the bro look about him. Looked like he was ready to split a 30. Cool dude.

Saw Bernier he was taking pictures even with a lot of his family there waiting. He was speaking French and chatting it up with Gelinas.

Mattaeu looked best dressed in a blue saude suit; him, Kinkaid, and Boucher all looked super young. I'm 23 and have a baby face, Boucher was the first athlete I've seen in person and thought "wow I'm older than him"

Tootoo was in and out but very nice.

Seeing the guys after the game sure puts it in perspective. Team might be lacking in talent but the effort is definitely there. Seem like genuinely good guys too

The 11-12 team wasn't that great for a good portion of the season (12-12-1 through the first 25 games). Different coach, different system. A lot of additions and subtractions. Far from the same team.

End of the day you're looking at same core of players. Elias, Kovy, Zajac, Zubrus, Broduer, Clarkson, etc. Tri is spot on with what I was trying to get across. Had the Devils not gotten going in the 2011 second half, I don't see the them close to .500 opening the season

I don't buy that the finish of 10-11 had much to do with the playoff success in 11-12 at all.

I'm also not putting much stock in this roster winning the kind of games like they have will be so important for next year. I just can't watch a game like the one against Pittsburgh, and say man this team is building something here.

I wouldn't say they made any difference in the playoffs but that was the same team + Parise coming out of the gate in 2011-2012
