Although I suppose you could say Zharkov too. Same draft year.
It's Zharkov for me too, he's three days younger than me.

Obvious joke is obvious with Clarkson on top line and Tedenby on 2nd.

almost had me there...

What do you mean what about three Zajacs? Seems legit.

I thought all three forward Zajacs were centers?

From what I've seen, yes, but he's got an incredible shot.

Boucher's shot is absurdly good.



That may be the fastest release I've ever seen.

Boucher's skating has to improve, and his defence is apparently non-existent. But his shot is already NHL calibre, and that will count for something.

Maybe, but if there's any organisation that can teach a kid to play defence, it's the Devils. Boucher is a long-term project, so let's wait a few years before we rush to judge him.

That's a bit much. Bossy was a better skater. And jumping to compare prospects to prolific Hall of Fame snipers is a fool's errand.

NJ sure did well with Tedenby and Bergfors, eh?

We did do pretty well with Arnott, Sykora, Rolston, Gionta, Parise and a whole host of other guys who weren't known for their defensive acumen before they came to NJ. Now, other teams assume they can play good defence because they used to be (or still are) on the Devils.

Bergfors was a rare wash out, and Tedenby isn't done here yet.
