Contract year. I mean if JoJo doesn't live up to it, is trading for a center a real possibility considering Elias can be moved around)?
Elias will be a Devil for another 3 or 4 years.

Josefson should make the team easily.

I think a wing is our biggest concern right now considering Zubrus, Elias, and Carter can also slide in as centers in case of injury.

I think they meant moved around from center to wing.

Oh as in Elias' position.

We have so many issues with our forward depth, I just hope Lou gets another body up there.

Speaking of centers, any chance Lou tries to sign Zajac midseason or are we looking forward to "he's going home to Winnipeg" rumors as UFA approaches?

I hope you're right, really would like Patty to be a lifer if the contract is reasonable.

Can anyone confirm that Mark Fayne has made a full recovery from his wrist injury and is ready to go on opening night?

Pete said that Matteau looked like he belonged in Training Camp. He is at his playing weight and has good size (6'2, almost 220 lbs). I can't wait to see him get some game action.

I'm pretty sure he would have been close to ready by the 'initial' opening night. And he's practicing so there are no issues with him.

I'd love to see him in a game or two as well. No need to rush him though so I hope they return him to juniors so he can develop his offensive game.

Darche called Lou "Mr. Lamiorello". I like the guy already. Hope he makes the team.

Going back earlier today to the discussion we were having about forward depth and replacing Parise, Poni, Sykora

Also should be taken into account we did not have Zajac really at all during the regular season so in a way he replaces some production

Otherwise though, yea not much to get our hopes high about on paper

I hope Darche makes the team. If anything he is a good 3rd/4th line player who will work his butt off to make the team.

Weekes is another big mouth. Loved when he talked **** last year about Marty's decline. Weeksie would have LOVED to have a decline. Instead though he was always **** except for that one year with Carolina, and that year they made the SCF with the goalie controversy with him, and Irbe when they knocked us out in 02.

Also I am rooting for Darche to make the team too. If anything it will make that useless piece of trash Janssen expendable, and sent to Albany where he belongs since he's on a two way contract.

Honestly I think if Lou had to put up with half the **** the media claims he puts up with vis-a-vis Kovy, that he would have retired long ago. Of course he's old school, I guess the fact that it's okay with him doesn't register with these people, there has to be something subterranean going on. Lou wouldn't put up with it if he really had to deal with ******** all the time.

If Florida doesn't contend, I can see us being players for Weiss. Even if it's a Jokinen situation where he re-signs with Florida in the offseason.

The Zajac situation will be interesting to watch. If the Devils are back in the pack at the trade deadline, I would hope Lou would know whether or not we have a realistic shot at Zajac wanting to stay here, but if not, you have to move him. We can't keep losing quality FAs and have nothing to show for it. I know everyone has their "in Lou we trust" thing after the run last year, but this is one area I've always felt Lou's gambled too often on.

Clarkson will probably shop around (although I could see Lou giving him a bad contract for some reason) and at least come back to the Devils, but Zajac I don't have the same level of confidence.

I agree, and I don't blame Lou for not trading Parise or other guys cause we were always in the hunt. If we're struggling he has to go unless of course he begs to stay, and even then he can screw us come UFA time. Lou definitely will leave an uneasy feeling with me if he lets these guys walk. Especially Clarkson who I think wants to be with us. His ideas of not wanting to give extensions until late June are far past dated. I'm sure they're leaving a lot of others fed up too with it. I don't know if I trust Lou, and the Hucksterbeek to give us legit replacements if they leave either.

If we gotta pay Zajac too much I'd rather try to get Getzlaf. Zajac isn't on Getzlaf's level at all, and if they cost the same, or even half a million more for Getzlaf then get him.
