I was just reading that a few minutes ago. Devils are in at #11 this week:

11. New Jersey Devils (3-0-0)

They don't have a home game until Saturday, but three wins away from Prudential Center is a nice way to start. The game at Tampa Bay was a good test after racking up 11 goals against two defense-deficient sides. Cory Schneider was at least one knucklehead's preseason Vezina Trophy winner [http://www.nhl.com/i...s.htm?id=733261], and so far so good on that front.

MUST READ: The Devils have found some forward depth, writes Alex Potts of In Lou We Trust.

How did I miss that?

My bad. The NHL website doesn't display well on my phone.

So we didn't even make the top 16 in this week's NHL power rankings.

I know it's only the NHL website. But you wonder what we would have to do to get in there. Go 4-0-0 with a goal differential of +20?

Still not enough support for people and the families of people with mental illness anywhere in the world.

Terribly sad.

And how's he going to do that if he doesn't play against NHL-caliber competition?

You can only do so much in practice. And he was clearly outclassing everyone else in the AHL last season, what a waste that was.


Improving your skating ability is not something you do or can achieve by playing games in the NHL. Reading the game yes. But skating is a fundamental aspect.

The coaches must realise this. If he wants to make it he needs to be taking extra sessions week in week out. If with additional training his skating and lateral movement don't improve it will be a case of him just not having top level skill. And in the "new" NHL mobility is a must.

Ilya Kovalchuk will be back in a Devils jersey by the trade deadline.
