Devils re-sign Gelinas

15 September 2014 - 07:12 AM

Per TG's Twitter:

Eric Gelinas is at Pru Center this morning. Appears he has signed.

Are the Devils going about the PK the right way?

09 September 2014 - 10:18 AM

This may seem like a very silly question considering the Devils were historically effective in 2011-2012 and were once again the top PK team in last year.  However, listening to Talking Red's interview with analytic guru Rob Vollman, he suggests that using top players like Elias, Zajac and Henrique may tire them at even strength.  Vollman also said that the trend on the PK is that teams are using secondary players (3rd-4th liners) and saving their best players. So here are a couple of questions:

 

1) Are the Devils playing the right players on the penalty kill and should they be saving them?

 

2) By playing top players, does is affect even strength performance (i.e. could NJ get above 55% possession)?

 

3) Would you sacrifice PK performance for better ES?
