side bar: does anybody have a good guess about how the admission to the draft will work especially under the lockout circumstances?
I almost think the opposite. With Tedenby likely not reaching his potential here, and Henrique and Josefson being more two-way players, I think what the Devils are really missing in their system is offense. Kovalchuk is approaching 30 and Elias won't be around much longer, and after that, who do you rely on when you need a goal? Guys like Boucher and Gavrus are a good start, but neither are sure bets (and no prospects truly are) which is why quantity can be important.
