  1. My opinion on Kovalchuk is this, there are times when he looks dominant and times where he's a wtf type player. So far I think he's been more dominant than WTF so to speak...I also think he has bought into DeBoer's system quite nicely, he's been cycling the puck down low and fighting along the boards, both are things I never expected to see out of him.

    My biggest gripe is that it seems like he's been on the ice for a goal against in EVERY SINGLE GAME. That's bound to happen though when you play upwards of 30 minutes a game.

  2. 10/9/11 Devils vs. Flyers

    3-0 LOSS

    Edit: OK I can't get the numbers to line up the right way so here's a link to the TOI stats.

    It's hard to get a read on what kind of ice time DeBoer wants each player to get considering we were shorthanded a ridiculous 8 times last night and we had the man advantage 8 times so as a result the even strength TIO is skewed. Regardless, let's have a look at some numbers.

    Parise only played 7:54 of even strength time, the only players to play less even strength hockey were Mills (7:03) and Boulton (4:53).

    Elias played (8:05) of ES hockey, Zubrus played (12:20) and Josefson played (10:45), Kovalchuk had (14:00) of ES hockey.

    Obviously like I said these numbers shouldn't be an accurate representation of what Deboer is trying to do, I just wish he would have double shifted his top two lines. Fatigue shouldn't be an issue seeing as it was the first game of the season.

    Another interesting note is that both Palmier and Kovalchuk were both -3, everyone else broke even or ended up -1. In my opinion Palmieri played line complete garbage last night and should be on the 4th line, he looked out of place and was all of the ice in our own zone, a couple of times his running around led directly to Flyer's goals. It's also obvious that he and Kovalchuk should not be on a line together....especially not on the PK together :doh1: .

  3. Parise and Elias together makes Baby Jesus cry. I am hoping that DeBoer recognizes what a bad idea that is.

    I think Elias is going to center one of Parise or Kovalchuk and I don't think he'll work on a line with Kovie.

  4. Figured I'd bring this thread back to life since Zajac will miss the beginning of the season and I'm getting antsy as the summer wears down.

    Kovalchuk-Zubrus-Palmieri

    This is from the Junior team evaluation camp, looks like he's trying out a pair of the latest Bauer gloves, stick and skates. His helmet, which is a Reebok, looks like the only official piece of Team Sweden equipment that he's wearing. Normally players would wear Reebok or CCM gloves and sticks.

    Anyone hear anything about him getting a sponsor?

  6. I hope these aren't the real jerseys. NHL jerseys have been ugly ever since RBK introduced their edge jerseys, I feel like teams are all finally starting to get decent Uniforms. This would be a step in the wrong direction.

    Look at that...it just looks right.

    Elias is a perfect example of what a Devil should be, he has overcome adversity fro sickness to being one of the only Europeans on the team, he comes in clutch and doesn't moan or complain like some other players.

    He led the team in points last year and refused to give up, he will also be a great role model for our younger players looking to make the jump to the NHL, not to mention he is the only player on our team to win the cup (twice) besides Brodeur. Experience in the playoffs is much more important to a championship team than people realize and is under rated in my opinion.

    The Captaincy belongs to Elias until he is no longer playing for us.

  8. Why even bother to go to arbitration if this was a possible outcome - everyone seems to be saying that Nashville didn't argue hard against Weber in arb. Why in the world not?

    No hurt feelings I suppose....I'm sure that can only help in them trying to resign him.
