Is Larsson Finished?

Yesterday, 12:05 PM

A serious question, and I would actually like to have some reason for optimism, but I just don't see it.  In the chance he got last game, he got about 11 minutes of icetime, and is once again on the bench.  At some point, you can't just say that DeBoer is being irrational.  He has been just as skeptical as Gelinas, who's holes in his game are more readily apparent.  There's always the Salvador factor, but if Larsson were really what you would expect in a number 4 pick who some thought was the best player in his draft, you find a way to get him into the lineup.

 

Is there any hope that he gets better?  Can anyone think of a defensemen who has had a similar start to their career that turned into a good or very good defenseman? 

Are the Devils breaking an old tradition?

Saw this at the NHL Store on 6th Avenue.  I mean, it's the NHL and the Devils so it wouldn't shock me if one hand doesn't know what the other is doing.  Nevertheless ...

I think it's an awful idea, but I'm usually wrong about these things.

Pronman's Top Ten Devils Prospects

19 August 2014 - 10:12 AM

Behind the espn paywall, so I'll just list them in order:

 

Santini, Severson, Quenneville, Matteau, Boucher, Pietila, Jacobs, Kujawinski, Gavrus, Scarlett.  Honorable mention, Myles Bell.  (Larsson, Merrill and Gelinas all "graduated").

 

I can't argue with this too much, except that I don't know why Gavrus is on there.  He probably has even less of a shot as making it into the NHL than Tedenby has at returning at some point.  I can think of at least five players I'd put ahead of him.  Black, Johnson, Helegson, Hrabanka, Bell and Scarlett each have at least a decent shot at having more than a cup of coffee in the NHL, even if it's of the Nick Palmieri sort. 

Question about Tix for Flyers Game

29 July 2014 - 11:03 AM

So I'm thinking about going to Devils/Flyers opening night in Philly with a friend of mine.  I saw nosebleed tickets available for $56 each through a broker site.  Anyone been to Flyer games who can tell me whether this is a good deal, or if it makes sense to hold out for a better price closer to the start of the season?
