Don't blame Pete for trying different looks with the younger players, get an idea of what he has. Things will sort out when we add depth in Henrique and whomever Lou trades for.

Agree we need scoring, but I think you guys are going way overboard with it. Make it sound like we re getting shutout every night. We have plenty of talent that can score, just need a bit more depth to slot some guys down the depth chart and spread things out a bit more. Henrique will be a big part of that, hopefully Lou will provide someone good with some finish as well. After that I don't think we would need any world beater type of forward, just a solid 2 way grinder for the third line. Whether that is Darche, Matteau, Anderson, Butler, whomever.

CBGB actually looked pretty good tonight. They had a bunch of solid shifts. Clarkson had a really good game. Moose was excellent, but I still think that goal could of been stopped. He shouldn't of had to if Kovy back checked harder, and Tally's stick did deflect it a bit, but it did look a bit soft. Still overall he looked great.
its early by no means is this the squad that will represent the devils in the playoffs. hopefully the right opportunity to acquire an additional forward will present itself as it is obvious we lack some depth up front.. basically we are out a full line from last year.../poni/henrique/parise..... we will get one of them back for sure....i prefer to see what we have first which is what they are doind and then go get someone....... Tallinder seems the most likely candidat to be moved. i would even be willing to give up two defensman one current roster guy ( tallinder) and one of the youner prospects on defense... to bring in a forward....needs to be a young forward though cause we are getting long in the tooth up front with elias and zub...
