Last time against the Leafs, they went with Nico, Jack, and Bratt on different lines. Now that all the top Leafs defensemen are out, and with the Devils having the last change, maybe they frontload a bit at times and terrorize bottom six forwards and/or bottom pairing D. Either way, if we see a full effort tonight, we should be in good shape. As a side note, at the start of the year, I felt that Toronto was a perfect fit for Severson at the deadline. With all of their injuries on defense, I can’t imagine they aren’t targeting him. However, it’s the Devils who might not be able to move him. If Nemec looked like he would be ready by midsession, then maybe. But there really isn’t a feasible option to replace Severson unless via another trade. Assuming the Devils continue winning at a reasonable rate, I can’t see them entering the postseason without that bottom pair solidified, so I’m not so sure what they’ll do at this point. He can’t be moved now. Even bringing in Nemec (or letting Bahl play) is the follow up, it would probably be a seller’s trade, not the move of a team that is thinking about competing in the playoffs. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
