Don't think we'll see it.

I'm open to getting the offense going though, whatever it takes.

Starting 0-3 is in a shortened season putting themselves behind an 8-ball early. Wont be the end of the world as I suspect this board will react if that happens.
Except all 3 of those older players have been goal scorers their entire career. Rusty not so much. He's been an energy guy for various teams.

Fedotenko in the top nine? Ewww.

We win due to the dancing large fellow from our home games (iirc his name is Shawn) sabotaging Brodeurs pads.

I fedetenko is in the top 2 lines, I will rage so hard.

If he is in the top line, I will jump ship to Toughfighter83's views on laviolette

Would love to see some fights tonight. The elder Schenn beating up Kovy would be nice so Devils fans can stop bragging about the fight against Brayden.

Why would Kovalchuk fight Luke Schenn at all?

We could have said the same about Brayden.

It more like a 3rd line actually. Schenn is centering the more offensively oriented second.
Doesn't matter because apart from the top line everything is a wash right now...

I like the new lines. Voracek needs to be with Giroux and Harntell. And the Couturier line oozes hockey sense. Just wish Briere was back

Putting Fed anywhere but the 3rd is dumb.

In the long run I mean. I understand the demotion doghouse game.

Kovalchuk would probably light Luke up just as he did Brayden. Luke is not a very polished fighter and Kovalchuk is definitely no slouche.

That second line is just brutal. I like the 3rd a lot better and the 4th line will probably be just as good.

I understand that we want to run 4 lines, but it's not like Fedetenko has done anything to earn a two line jump.

It's all experimentation at this point, but I just don't like the drastic wholesale changes. Other than Hartnell and Giroux, how many of those players have played together in the past?

Glad to see Voracek on the first line, where he belongs. Fedetenko on the second.... I don't know, guess it can't be any worse then Talbot.

I like Talbot dropping to the 4th line as a motivational demotion (the guy has been playing bad, [and most importantly] stupid hockey the first 2 games so far - how many turnovers at the opposition blueline on the PK does he have now?), but Laughton and Simmonds should be getting rewarded for strong play, yet instead find themselves 'demoted' for Fed (who has been playing okay for his role, but not great) and McGinn (in his NHL debut).

I would've liked (based on merit from the first 2 games) to see something like:
Hart-Roo-Sim (promotion for Simmonds)
Schenn-Laughton-Voracek (promotion for Laughton)
Read-Cooter-Wellwood (demotion for Read/Cooter [who have been invisible] and promotion for Wellwood [who at least skates hard])
Fed-Talbot-Rinaldo (major demotion for Talbot - wake up man, we need ya!)

Me too, a 4th line with those two is ideal. I don't like them in the top 9, even though talbot put up great numbers last yr and fed has in the past relatively speaking of course, I think they're better suited for the 4th line. I do think Laughton is underrated offensively so i'm ok with having him up on the 3rd line

Other than the first one, the lines look weird and I find it hard to picture them being offensive threats. I guess we'll see how that goes, though.

I'll be at this one 12 rows off the ice in the corner behind Brodeur. Would love to spoil their banner celebration ceremony. LET'S GO FLYERS!!!

The logic of having Feds on the 2nd line and Simmonds on the 3rd is simply to equilibrate these two lines imo. They are like "the two middle lines", not the 2nd and the 3rd.

Devils will be playing their same style as last years playoffs. This will give our defense even more fits and if we can't deal with it this will be a 5-1 loss.
If we can adjust tonight and put some pressure on ourselves, we win 4-2 with a pair from Giroux, and Simmer and Mesz adding the other 2.

Dropped in to wish you guys good luck tonight.

We won't be celebrating any banner btw, we only celebrate SC wins. Banner is already hung up and uncovered. At best, you'll probably just see some highlight reel of last year's run and a quick spotlight on the banner.
