2013 New Jersey Devils (Team News, Player Discussion - Part IV)
 
I maxed out the old one. Continue here.

Soooo Larsson should be playing next game. Sit Zids or Cam I say.

Henrique Iglesias 01-23-2013 08:24 AM

This x100000.

Jack Griffin 01-23-2013 08:34 AM

Zidlicky had a bad game but I don't think he should sit. I wouldn't mind putting Larsson in for Cam though since he's not playing anyway.

Makes no sense scratching Larsson.

Play him or let him develop in AHL.

BrodeursCups 01-23-2013 08:43 AM

We are probably only looking at another 3 games without Henrique...

Next Thursday against the Isles seems like a good target date.

Ronnie Bass 01-23-2013 10:02 AM

Anybody else ready to sign Marty to an extension? He looks like he's 25 again, I was thinking next year would be his final year but I'm really thinking he could go another year or two past that.

:laugh: No, Ronnie.

Ohio Jones 01-23-2013 10:05 AM

Zajac looking more like himself? Clarkson seems to be continuing to find ways to contribute as well...

(interesting - my iPhone subbed "Xanax" for "Zajac" lol)

On what? Him not retiring or playing like he's 25? Either way I say keep him around till he's either 50 or his Anthony replaces him. :laugh:

Either way we are so lucky to have one of the all-time greats.

No, I'm not willing to give a contract extension to a 40 year old two games into a two year contract. ;)

Well, the extension comment was tongue in cheek, but bringing him back after this contract ain't.

Wingman77 01-23-2013 10:15 AM

I'm not familiar with the terms regarding the ELCs and whether they are the same for sending a guy back to the AHL or Juniors, but when we sent Urbom down when Johnny Mac was coaching, I believe it had to to with not burning the year off the ELC and it made it easier to send him down because it was clear he wasn't ready

Matteau on the other hand here has not looked at all out of place (granted its just 2 games), I don't expect him to be here after the 5 games, but when he's looked this good, it's tough to send him back

Urbom could be sent to the AHL because he was drafted from a SEL team and not from Canadian Juniors. Matteau would have to be sent back down to Juniors, the only options are play Matteau here and start his ELC and UFA clock ticking or Juniors.

AfroThunder396 01-23-2013 10:39 AM

I'd give Zids one more game, if he blows it again than bench him for Larsson vs. Montreal.

I'd like to roll seven defensemen against Washinton, don't think we'll need Janssen.

GameSeven 01-23-2013 10:50 AM

Hopefully the team continues the winning trend started in these first two games.

Dealing from our position of strength on D to bolster our forward corps is much easier when the team is winning and not influenced by desperation.

Gotcha, thanks

From a contract standpoint it makes plenty of sense to send him back, but does Lou go that route or go on his merit standard is what I'm interested to see

It'll be a sad day when he retires in 2033. :cry:

Shhhh he thinks this is 1995 again. We need Detroit to step up or they're gonna wreck the reunion. Watch us finish 5th place in the East too.

Some stuff from TG:

Quote:

“It was jump, but it’s hockey,” Volchenkov said today. “There’s contact sometimes. I’m not sure if he was trying to hurt me or just hit me hard. But I feel good. Now, it’s a decision for the league. I’m sure he was just trying to hit me, but the guy jumped.”
Quote:

Bernier said he waited until it was clear the game was decided before fighting Schenn. He admitted “it had been a while” since his last fight.

“But you can’t let a guy run around like that,” Bernier said.
Quote:

Would DeBoer like to keep Matteau around for the full season?

“Those are discussions Lou (Lamoriello) and I will have and Lou will make those decisions,” DeBoer said.
Quote:

When asked if he has the “brain power” to match wits with Oates Friday night, DeBoer laughed and replied, “I don’t know about the brain power. I’m sure his SAT was at least a few hundred points higher than mine.”

“It will be nice seeing behind the bench of his own team and well deserved,” DeBoer said. “He gave this organization his full dedication and a lot of hours and a lot of work and was a big part of our success last year.”

after 2 games? just draft his offspring to fix that hankerin'.

BrodeursCups 01-23-2013 12:57 PM

Deboer said he likes Matteau's skating. I don't know which player he's watching because 15 is too slow.

Devils Trap 01-23-2013 01:00 PM

Doozy of a thread in the main board about Adam Larsson , folks

Apparently he is another Swede that the Devils are trying their hardest to make him fail. Because every team wants their 4th Overall pick to bust right ?

I like the idea and play Janssen when we face the Flyers, Rangers and Bruins, etc.
