He has still been noticeable. He is great at rushing into the offensive zone. Getting passes to the points and is a good puck possession player in the dirty areas. I love his game. He must be re-signed in my opinion.
And to his credit the entire team hasnt been impressive, they all fell off the map at once.
I posted this in another thread but we could all use a good laugh and a fun thread. What 'zones' can you come up with for the Devils?
Clarkson would have a "failed toe drag attempt" zone near the blue line and a "keep head down at all times" zone behind the goal line. Kovy would have his "stop on a dime on every rush" zone just passed the blue line on the left wing boards.
That's one of the first 'tricks' I could do when I was 9 years old. Very very easy. For whatever reason I dont like it when you are trying to win a NHL game, its impossible to get the puck up and the goalie will just cover the bottom. I know hockey is suppose to be entertaining but for me that wasn't exciting at all because I know how easy it is to pull. If a Devil tried to pull something like that I would be livid. Daugavins didn't just do that to try to score but he did it to turn some heads as well. That's a very low percentage shot on a cheesy trick, I don't like it.
I am sorry, but I am probably in the minority, the guy looked like a dope when he tried to pull that.
I never said I wanted to do such a thing. I would never assault, threaten, personally attack, shout profanities, or throw anything at any other fans. But I would do my best to make sure they have a HORRIBLE experience otherwise in all things related to the game itself and make them never want to come back. These people didn't come to our building to play parcheesi and hold hands. They came here to root for the other team in OUR BUILDING. I will absolutely go out of my way to rub it in as much as possible when our team does something good. When we score and there are fans of the other team sitting around me, I will make sure to yell "You suck!" right in their general direction. I'll go to high-five fans of the other team as they leave early because they're getting whooped. And I will yell "You can have it!" during the Canadian anthem. I'd expect the same if I went into their arena.
I seriously hope you only act like this to people who are a$$holes and not to people who are just minding their own business. I go to many road games and I show respect and I get respect back.
Zubie clarky was never bad, he was just younger and not a veteran in this system. Just like JJ and teddy. So thank you for proving my point that i can just skip over zubie8's comments everytime theyre about evaluating a player.
EDIT: easier said now about Clarkson. He was beyond bad in 2010 and everybody knows that. And for what its worth I have so much humility that I bumped that thread multiple times to say I was wrong and I was happy to be wrong, and I also grew up since then. You should do the same.
And everyone talking about JJ being better defensively, i already said that. Multiple times. My point is josesfson is playing like a solid 4th line player at BEST if not a healthy scratch. I dont see him producing like a 3rd yr player should and everyone who rips teddy should be ripping JJ just the same. Both players have their upsides and need to develop more and on their all around game. JJ is better defensively, Teds is better offensively. Btw in teddys 4 games this year he made very few mistakes and bad reads defensively if you watched him.
You do realize Teddys first season was three years ago. He put up some good numbers but he was still getting benched throughout those games for poor defensive play. For the last three seasons he has been going downhill while Josefson has been consistent and has not been a liability in those same three seasons.
