Forgot we already had a prospects thread, so I took that out of the title.

Larsson in particular just doesn't belong in this league.

Honestly feels like Albany should consider firing Kowalsky at this point. No excuse for this much talent being unable to string together wins.

This should cover most of the AHL and ECHL prospects. I used the reserve list at capgeek and what I could remember about guys on AHL deals:

AHL for the lockout?

Adam Henrique C (EDIT: Added him late to post)

Adam Larsson D

Jacob Josefson C

Stephen Gionta C

Peter Harrold D

Mattias Tedenby LW

Goalies

Keith Kinkaid

Scott Wedgewood

Maxime Clermont

Jeff Frazee

Defensemen

Brandon Burlon

Eric Gelinas

Alexander Urbom

Dan Kelly

Harry Young

Jay Leach

Matt Corrente

Raman Hrabarenka* Tryout

Left Wings

Mike Hoeffel

Harri Pesonen

J.S. Berube

Chad Wiseman

Joe Whitney* Not sure if he is signed to an AHL deal at the moment

Centers

David Wohlberg

Tim Sestito

Steve Zalewski

Phil DeSimone* AHL Contract

Kelly Zajac* AHL Contract

Right Wings

Mike Sislo

Bobby Butler

Matt Anderson

Alexandre Carrier* AHL Contract

Darcy Zajac* Not sure if he is signed to an AHL deal at the moment

I didn't include Stefan Matteau LW since he'll probably play in the Q next year if there is a lockout. Also with all of those defenseman to be scattered around Albany and the ECHL, I guess it isn't surprising that the Devils didn't sign Corbin McPherson. I was hoping they'd give him a shot, California born righty d-man standing at 6'4 220 who captained Colgate his senior season last year. His age (23) probably works against him here.

I don't think the Devils have ruled out signing McPherson, and he could still sign an AHL deal.

Of the people you list, I am pretty sure only Larsson and Josefson eligible for the AHL if the rules from last lockout stay in place. There might be a games played minimum that Stephen Gionta didn't hit, but he's on a one-way contract now.

Bobby Butler, Chad Wiseman and Matt Anderson were placed on waivers so they can play in Albany this season.

Butler, Josefson, Tedenby, Henrique, Anderson, Wiseman, Zalewski, Pesonen, Sislo, Sestito, Wohlberg, Hoeffel

It seems we have a jog jam of very good AHL players up front with very good young goaltenders and a very good defense. This maybe our year to make a run at the Calder Cup.

I'm interested in seeing how Urbom and Gelinas play against the better quality of competition this year. Should be a good measuring stick.

They are a year older and will have Larsson eat all the tough minutes. I don't think we should expect much of a drop off in play, Gelinas will almost certainly score less goals.

Harry Young as an enforcer may work if he is good enough at fighting. His defense and boardwork should be excellent for an enforcer.

Scott Parse is talented enough to put up points at the NHL when healthy. He should help Albany's potent offense.

Yeah. Way too many players right now though, the training camp roster has 22 forwards, I wonder who gets sent to the ECHL - my guess would be K. Zajac, Haczyk, McKelvie, DeSimone, and two of Carrier, Young, or Berube. Hoeffel's a candidate too with how his season finished up.

Does Wohlberg have a chance at an NHL career?

Career's a bit of a loaded word, but I think he has a shot to be an NHL player, yeah. I wouldn't bet on him playing 100 NHL games at even money, but I wouldn't bet against it at 3:1.

Why isn't Stephen Gionta playing in Albany? He's been an AHL player (and our AHL captain) for years. You'd think they would want him down in Albany during the lockout...

My guess is they're afraid someone would take him on waivers. EDIT: although it also seems that he could've just been signed to an AHL deal. I guess they simply don't want him there for now.

Here are some photos from Albany's camp courtesy of Mike Ashmore. He just started a new hockey blog called 5 For Writing that covers everything in the world of hockey. I recommend checking it out. He has an interview with Devils prospect Maxime Clermont about his goalie mask and will have interviews with the Devils other goalie prospects up soon.

He also reports on his Trenton Titans blog that former Devils prospect Kory Nagy has been signed by the club.
