The one thing Elias sucks at is taking faceoffs, otherwise I'm fine with him playing center

Yeah, he could definitely use some practice time with his Czech pals Plekanec and Krejci.

Zajac should put the entire team through faceoff bootcamp.
Elias is pretty bad, but so is a lot of the team.

I just don't want to see Clarkson taking any more faceoffs.

But while Henrique is out, Elias is going to have to play centre. It could be worse.

I still can't figure out why they kept doing that. As an experiment early in the season I was on board with it. But once they found out he sucks at faceoffs, they should have stopped it.

Even then, it still looks pretty weak with a lot of question marks.

Well, at least it's just a thumb and not a knee or head injury.

This lockout sucks.

Isn't this basically the same thing that Yayo had once? I wonder how Henrique got injured.

Not the best of news but since there's no hockey ATM, it's a non issue for me.

Lou will have to do something about our forwards because as soon as someone in our top 6 goes down with a injury, our lineup up front looks like real weak.

Counting on Butler or Tedenby shouldn't even be a option at this point but unfortunatly for us, it is.

Yeah regardless of Henrique I wanna get rid of somebody on D. Main factor is it causes us to be shorthanded forwards on our roster. I have a better chance of hitting the lottery than them utilizing Janssen's two way contract, and sending him down to the minors. the 23 man roster would leave us with 13 forwards, 8 D men, and 2 goalies. Unless there is a D man on LTIR at all times. Even when they asked Pete about it he acted dumbfounded, and didn't know what to say ''Yeah yeah we've never had this kind of depth before'' you could tell he didn't seem so excited about it either.

If there is no season though there might be no trades involving D men. Zidlicky likely won't be brought back. Still would love to dump Tallinder to give us some cap flexibility to re sign Clarkson, and Zajac.

We do always have some bad injuries to our centres the last two years. Zajac and Yayo last year, now Henrique.

Tom Gulitti ‏@TGfireandice

Henrique said "it's actually the same injury" as Jacob Josefson had 2 years ago. Josefson ended up missing 2 1/2 months/30 games.

Tom Gulitti ‏@TGfireandice

So, Devils' estimation that Henrique will miss 4-6 weeks is probably on low side. Henrique has to wear cast for four weeks.

Not good. We're gonna really need to make some kind of move if this ends, as if we didn't need to make one anyway. This is what I was afraid of most. We can't afford to an injury to any forward not named Barch, or Janssen right now. This isn't like Tallinder missing half the season last year.

That, sign Sykie, get rid of a D man too in the trade. Having all those D men is not helping us when we need scoring. Especially when it's many one way defensive defensemen, who have the scoring touch of Dano, and Colin White combined.

If the whole season is cancelled, I'm not even sure next one will start in October! Not October 2013 that is.

ďAt this point, it is what it is,Ē Henrique said. ďIím a young guy. We did the surgery and it went well. I just want to make sure it heals up properly and if itís needed take more time to make sure itís healed properly thatís something you have to do.Ē


....you know when you notice something. And then you can't stop noticing it. And then it drives you crazy?

Love the kid. I really do. But every interview: As a young guy. I'm a young guy. As a young guy. I'm a young guy. And repeat.

Never picked up on that, but do you know what I did? He clears his throat a lot in interviews. I've noticed that. He doesn't do it obnoxiously loud or anything, it's very quiet, but he does do it a lot.
