See, I really don't think Gelinas is as much of a shoe-in as you guys do. It's easy to say he's putting up PP points at the AHL level, but then look at the personnel we have on our NHL squad that ISN'T putting up points: do you really think Eric Gelinas will make a difference? Not to mention his skill set is extremely redundant now that we have Larsson.

We simply have too much depth. Unless we have an absurd wave of injuries neither is going to get an opportunity. I honestly don't think Urbom or Gelinas are going to be long-term Devils. That's not to say they aren't quality prospects. But Merrill is the only D prospect we have with enough raw talent to force his way into the NHL line-up.
