Too many players I'm rooting for and not enough spaces! It would have been kind of surprising if one of nine players in the first group was left off the team. I would think that Ruutu is almost a lock at this point as well.

 

Tough to choose between the rest of this group. I would like Gomez to make the team. I would bet the fourth line is Ruutu - Gomez - Brunner to start the season. Although I wouldn't be surprised to see Zubrus fall to the third or fourth line if he doesn't produce.

 

I've always been a Carter fan as well, but I think the CBGB line may start the year in the AHL (like they did in 2012). I would bring Tootoo to add some grit to a pretty soft group. I could see him as the 13th forward. Him or Gionta, although Gio obviously brings in a different skill set. 

 

Pretty exciting to see the depth on this team. Although the Devils success offensively hinges on Jagr having another great year on the first line. Or someone else (Henrique?) stepping up if he doesn't.

Would have been nice to get the shootout monkey off our back, even if it's just the pre-season.

 

I don't mind Harrold and Janssen or whoever playing games even if "we know what were getting" at this point. Other than a few players, I would expect DeBoer knows what he's getting at this point. Most of them played here last year after all. Part of the point of these games is to get guys in shape for the season. Especially guys who won't see game action for the next couple weeks because they will be out of the lineup (Harrold).

Too bad coaching didn't work out for him. Always been a JMac fan. Too young to really follow the betrayal, but old enough to know he was awesome on NHL '95. 

 

I wonder how permanent this is or if he plans to get back into coaching.

I was really cheering for Scott Gomez to make the team. But I think it's going to be tough for him if Elias and Henrique both play center. Stephen Gionta is probably a lock to make the starting day roster. And who knows with Josefsen. 

 

I actually thought Kaberle looked good out there. Calm with the puck. Great passer. But the kids looked great too. Tough choices all over the place for DeBoer.

I think Kinkaid had the inside track to the backup role already based on what Lou said when Clemmenson was reaquired.

 

Maybe. I was going off of what the players and coach have been saying over the last couple of days. Sounded like an open competition.
