intriguing - he's in for carter. i imagine if henrique can't go, that's tedenby's spot.

zubrus-zajac-jagr

brunner-elias-bernier

boucher-loktionov-ryder

tedenby-josefson-janssen

that's a bit of a mismash but we'll see what we get.

ugh putting him on a line with loktionov and Ryder is just setting him up for disappointment. Hope pete puta him with some better players

Why not?  Guess they're not going to wait as long for some of the current crew to get it going as we thought.  Could be a nice jolt.

Love this. Really hope it works and helps jumpstart the scoring. Smart to put him with a guy like Patty who can possibly cover for him defensively. Still don't get Janssen/Sestito playing over Lokti but whatever. Happy they're at least trying something new.

Kind of nervous that we're going to get  a wet blanket thrown on our hopes that Boucher is legitimate NHLer. 

 

He's beating up the AHL at age 20.  If anything keeps him from the NHL it's going to be defense/board play and that sort of thing.  He's going to be able to score goals, though.

Happy a player was called up from the AHL that can actually help (sorry Sestito). 

 

Not to beat a deadhorse, but really don't get the scratches. In no universe should Sestito be playing over Loktionov, and looking at the Habs lineup, no reason for Janssen over Tedenby. I'd love to understand the point of tonight's 4th line.

 

Edit: Guess it is Josefson being scratched instead of Loktionov. Point still stands.

A few comparisons, if you will, to age 20 Devils (in their Y+3 draft year) in the AHL:

 

Reid Boucher:  21 GP, 10 G, 8 A, 18 P

 

 

Nicklas Bergfors:  66 GP, 12 G, 15 A, 27 P

Pierre Dagenais:  69 GP, 17 G, 13 A, 30 P

Patrik Elias:  57 GP, 24 G, 43 A, 67 P

Jiri Bicek:  79 GP, 15 G, 45 A, 60 P

Petr Sykora:  43 GP, 20 G, 25 A, 45 P

Bill Guerin:  22 GP, 13 G, 10 A, 23 P

Vadim Sharifjianov:  70 GP, 14 G, 27 A, 41 P

 

Don't have shots on goal data for any of these besides Bergfors, but yeah.

wow I didn't realize Elias tore up the ahl that much.

I wonder if Boucher will get pp time and if so where they put him on it.
