Possession stats from one game - never change, Cordell.

 

not sure if you watched the game, but you could see that boucher played well. i pointed that out with my limited hockey analysis brain earlier. he's a guy that got his shot off in limited space and again, made a really nice pass on the 3 on 1 that bernier botched at the net.

 

tootoo has done more than enough to earn his spot in the lineup this year. and gionta is gionta - i don't love him on the 3rd line, but being in the lineup is fine. zubrus - at this point he's one of the worst forwards in the NHL. although he seemed to have better board work last night than the train wreck against LA.

regarding the actual game, i liked what i saw out of boucher - he was able to get his shot off a bunch of times in tight spaces and made a great pass to bernier on the 3 on 1. had some issues hitting the net but there is something there. reminded me of friesen with the #12 and the way he skated a bit.

i agree dr33 - especially with josefson. if you've got faith in him to play PP, then have faith in a top 6 role. or even top 9. make gionta drag zubrus and matteau around.

 

i would like:

 

cammelleri-zajac-josefson

boucher-gomez-bernier

henrique-elias-tootoo

ruutu-gionta-matteau

This is exactly right though. You don't draft pluggers and bottom 6 guys. Those guys can be found.

You win with big UFAs or small ones.  You almost never win in the middle.  So yes, there are plenty of big signings that have worked out, but how likely are those now given the rules?  And how likely were they then? 

 

that's true, but the devils UFAs are attempts at the big ones. you don't give 5/25 deals out to "the middle"
