In Topic: Oates and Stevens both coaching. Lou overlord. Barr Out.

Ideally you want to take the younger of the two. Isn't McDavid a few months younger than Eichel.


Have to watch out for the early birthdates.

I don't think that matters. Both are studs.

In Topic: Bernier, Harrold & Janssen on Waivers. Carter to Wild

Devs' lineup tonight from TG: Forwards: Cammalleri-Zajac-Jagr; Havlat-Elias-Zubrus; Clowe-Henrique-Ryder; Ruutu-Gionta-Tootoo.


Dress rehearsal?


Not playing for Devils tonight: Kinkaid, Helgeson, Zidlicky, Harrold, Gomez, Matteau, Brunner, Janssen, Josefson, Boucher, Carter, Bernier


That leaves 2 reserve spots open (2G+7D+14F=23) between those listed above.


- Janssen easily sent down

- Matteau & Boucher sent down (top 9 replacements if injuries occur)

- Bernier sent down (hasn't made a case for himself over the other guys


That leaves Gomez, Brunner, Josefson, and Carter. Assuming the players in the lineup tonight are safe for being on the roster I would say Carter does not get a contract (Tootoo). That leaves Brunner (injury) and Gomez/Josefson.


If there is one thing that stands out to me this preseason between Gomez and Josefson, and this is just what first comes to mind, it is 2 PPGs and slick passing from Gomez and penalties from Josefson. So at the end of the day, if Gomez is Player A and Josefson is Player B, who makes the team better? Player A? I'm not 100% sure.


On the defense, it interesting Severson is playing again but obviously Zidlicky is going to in the top 6.


- Helgeson and Severson sent down (unless miraculously Salvador is traded -- there is no point have them play #7 role)


Greene, Zidlicky, Salvador, Harrold, Larsson, Merrill, Gelinas as the final group there.


And between Kinkaid/Clemmer I couldn't say.

Boucher-Henrique-Ryder 1a.

Cammalleri-Zajac-Jagr 1b.

Clowe-Elias-Havlat 2a.

Ruutu-Gomez-Zubrus 2b.











Drop Bernier (AHL or cut ties), Brunner (trade), Gionta (AHL - utility player call up), Carter, Kaberle, Fedotenko (release), Severson (AHL), Helgeson (AHL), Clemmensen (AHL)


Time to drop the baggage that has been IMO weighing the team down the past 2 years and/or being beaten out of spot (Brunner is ineffective outside of top 6 really).
