I'd like to see Hrabarenka or Helgeson get some time.  Why would the Devils sign another defenseman when they've been praising their own defensive depth for this entire off-season.  We have an 7th defenseman who will jump in in case of injury, and that's Harrold.  I understand the reasoning behind signing a depth defeseman that can bounce in between, but I don't see that happening.  You're going to have a depth guy that is going to be repeatedly exposed to waivers if the Devils have a multitude of injuries.  It's just much easier to move around a younger guy if the injury bug hits us hard.  

Unless Severson is going back to Kelowna, which I don't think he is, i'd love to see him as the guy we give a shot to in case of injury, DeBoer said that Severson will be given a legitimate look to make the team in September but I think Severson's contract situation with him being able to go down without waivers is gonna prevent him from making the team, unless he REALLY impresses and grabs a job. So yeah, I agree, i'd rather just have our young d with guys like Helgeson or Severson come up and play instead of signing a veteran depth guy.

Josefson is the kind of player that's going to flourish in another system if we don't start to give him a legitimate chance, let him grow and I still believe JJ can become a solid 3rd line center for this hockey team

Re: Hrabarenka, I like the kid, i'm not sure he'll be an NHL player someday but I watched Albany a lot during the lockout and I was always impressed with him, can use his big frame to his advantage with his reach and he has a hard shot too. I wasn't able to catch any Albany games except for about half of one playoff game this past season so I haven't seen him play much recently, but from what i've heard he had a good 2013-14 campaign

33 goals last year in the W for Seattle, Lipsbergs sounds promising.

In Topic: Preds sign Volchenkov for 1 year/ $1mill

For those asking about the rules on buyouts, you're not allowed to sign that player for a full year since you've bought him out, i'm not sure what the rule is on trades though or if there even is one.
