sundstrom you are making a good point, I saw the "+" and there needs to be additional Devils offerings for anyone to bite with Nieuwy and Danton.

Triumph, we choose to disagree about Gomez. IMO he doesn't belong on the 1st line but certainly on the 2nd. I do understrand your point about other than 1st line players on the same line.

I guess I believe that the combination of Gomez & Elias last season and this has proven not to work. ittle G is out of place with Elias style which he isn't using because of the talent or lack there of he is playing with to date.

Sykora and Arnott knew their job, where each other was at all times, this is what Elias needs to become a star again. Not someone in front of the net that's small like Little G. I'll give you the point that G has been scoring but that won't last as other teams pick up on him.

so I just think that Elias need a cetain type of talent to play with and time won't heal that this season. He will be traded if they can't find the right guys which aren't on the Devils rooster as we speak. If they bother to look.

Arnott had an attitude problem which was about Stevens and Lou, same with Sykora. Arnott was a bad trade. Breaking up the "A" Line was a bad move. Sykora was a bad trade to date. Sykora is much better than Friessen and Tver hasn't produced offensively and is a risk on defense at times.

In Topic: Devils Passing

I really think it's the offensive passing that is off because most passes are long one rather than controlled, crisp, hard short passes to the player that is skating forward or ready to shoot. While the Defensive outbound passses tend to also be too long, they are mostly off the mark. Center ice I understand, dump is the way to move puck forward, butwhen given a chance to pass from center ice, it always too long a pass.

Short passing is the answer.

And SC Devs Fan if you're correct that it will never happen again, then Elias will be traded.

I personally think it can happen but not with 2nd, 3rd and 4th line players. Elias in my book is still a 1st line player, on offense, the only one on the persent Devils team. It's up to Lou, if he wants an "A" line and a 2nd strong offensive line. Present financial problems say it won't and can't happen so I see Lou trading Elias for a bunch of 2nd & 3rd line players. Elias will demand a trade if something doesn't happen after this season or maybe sooner, but he knows Lou so I doubt he will start the trade issue. It will happen cause he won't earn his salary and Lou could use the salary cut.

It's too bad, Elias has so much potential and so much talent.
