Well maybe he is going to stick around for five games...just long enough to get Henrique back.

Petr Sykoras going to have to sneak onto the ice during the scrimmage, and get a hatty again.

NICE!

Maybe Matteau would not turn out to be a bust after all.

If he's showing that he can AT LEAST pass as an NHL Player, then he's already leap-frogged that "bust" possibility.

DeBoer says the Devils have 8 NHL caliber defensemen and "two more" knocking at the door in Albany

At least he's showing promise that he could eventually become one

Lou said he really only wants to see where Matteau is at and he'll most likely end back up in the Q.

He gets final say, no?
I hope that's the case.

I don't care if no one agrees with me... but the fourth line and the furious forcheck is what put the Devils in the finals. It requires a lot of speed and hard work. I only see Arnott, Darche, Janssen, and Barch slowing the whole thing down.
Arnott and Darche score goals. Janssen and Barch (and Tedenby) don't. I agree on Butler helping to fill the holes.

Pretty much.

And if what Petey said was any indication, I'd say Lou has to be PLEASED with the progress so far of his draft pick.

I'm wondering if Sykora really is wating around to see what Lou will do after camp.

It seemed like from all the buzz before the MOU was signed, that he'd sign somewhere right away.
Hasn't shown up for anyone's camp yet, though. And he'll definitely, definitely need to get most of camp in if he's going to play this year.


Hoping he ends up in Nashville.

I think if Fanye and Larsson progress half as much as I think they will we will have one of if not the best unit in the NHL.

Normally you can spot a watered down quote right away. Not so easy with these quotes

Not sure if DeBoer is seriously considering him or if he's just complimenting his abilities. Would be cool to see him in the NHL day one but I'm not sure if he's good enough to be a poor man's Mike Rupp yet.

I agree with you here.

Tedenby isn't magically going to contribute 10-20 goals over a season. He's played almost 100 games now and hasn't shown much growth at this level.

Extrapolating performance from a hot 4th line is insane too.

It's pretty funny that last year, Devil fans were crying about how BAD our defense and centers were and how great our wings were.

Now our D is great, our centers are deep, and our wingers blow.

Funny how one year can change things.

I would guess he's talking about Gelinas and Urbom in Albany. Then there's Burlon and Merrill right behind them.

Corrente may be knocking... but he's at the wrong house.

I couldn't disagree more. A replacement player playing with Kovy and Zajac gets 10 goals.

I would be totally ok with this. Test drive Matteau on the big stage while we're short a forward or two anyway.

I wonder if Lou is active. Plenty of talk through the hockey media that defensemen are very much in demand and teams with a surplus hold all the cards. Seems like this would be the prime opportunity to get a solid deal in a trade for a forward. Question for the board - who would you want to see go or stay among our defensemen?

Corrente had shoulder surgery and is out for the season. He is done with the Devils, IMO.

Well, I had my hopes. But it looks like good night, sweet Corrente.

Ryan O'Reilly made the Avalanche straight after the draft and put up a great season. He was selected 33rd overall.

Sean Couturier made the Flyers straight from the draft and put up a great season too. He was selected much higher though.

Stranger things have happened.
