Agreed.
I think the production of the 4th line is secondary to its defensive reliability.
If they can pot a few goals, its found money.

But they all have the ability to eat a fair amount of minutes every night.
Any 4th line that can put in close to double digit minutes is fine by me.

I'm not so bitter anymore, clearly we made the right decision and stayed successful and he didn't, but I agree that we really don't need him at centre, because we have excellent depth there. Even if we're planning to put Henrique on the wing, using Elias as a centre or signing a guy like Huselius is a better option than bringing in Gomez.

This should generate some fun replies. Thanks for the entertainment during the lockout, we need it.

These are sad times indeed. That Kovy and Datsyuk comment got no attention.

Not confident in Gionta at all. He pulled the same act when he first graduated from college to the AHL, going on some freaky tear at the end of the AHL season and convincing a lot of people he was a quality player.

I'd like to see it, though.

im confident in gionta, because he's a fourth liner for gods sake.

and he is a "quality" player, he's the definition of it if you ask me.

Not sold, but not skeptic either. He`s Gionta, so whatever happens, he`ll still continue to hustle and play with heart. In a limited role, that can`t be viewed negatively even if he struggles for a longer period of time. And Lou`s obviously not overly confident either, and rightfully so. Gionta`s contract extension clearly shows his way of thinking.

If the salary cap goes down then I can't see anything better for them other than burying him in the minors. He's taking up so much space that they could be using to sign or trade for a better player with that salary.

As far as Gionta goes though like I said if he does play with Janssen and Barch he won't bring any offense at all, and probably not a whole lot of defense either. Maybe occasionally with Barch, but not with Janssen. Janssen should be in the minors if anything. He's on a two way. I don't understand why they didn't just give him a one way for a year like they did with Harrold if he's probably not gonna see any AHL time.

Anyway sign Gomez, sign Arnott, Sykora, and then we got 5 guys with Patty, and Marty from our 00 Cup team! Trade Greene, and Tallinder, sign Colin White since he's still free, and even better. Too bad Robinson's gone. Just sign Rolston even though he didn't finish the season with us that year.

Top it all off by picking up Kurtis Foster through UFA!

Foster brought our defense to a new level of suck

With the addition of Zidlicky, I'd rather not bring him back.

Foster was atrocious except for his shot.

i would think theyd send him to the minors before they waive him though...i bet someone would pick him up anyway..the devils, hopefully (half cereal)

I don't think anybody is expecting him or the rest of the fourth line to play at that level over a full season or for the rest of his career, but he's a useful player to have around, and we're not paying him much or committing to him for many years. It's hard to complain about his presence on the team, especially when there's no risk and he's also so likable.

We already have 8 capable NHL defencemen, no need to bring in Foster. Harrold fulfils that role better.

Forgot about Pandolfo in my plea to bring back as many pieces of the 2000 Cup team as possible. He's a UFA too.

He's done I'd say. He went a year without getting an NHL job already so I think he's done. Rolston was leaning toward retirement before last season even ended. He's done too especially with a lockout. There may be a demand somewhere for Rolston, but I think he will probably retire. Pandolfo no demand at all I don't think.

Colin White might be finished too. Though some team might pick him up after the CBA is straightened out. Arnott I doubt he retires. Just some predictions on former Devils who's futures seem uncertain right now.
