Agreed 100%

Well, our forwards decided to take a long shift and got caught up ice on a horrendous line change and actually gave them a 3 on 2 if you can believe it.
Real weak.

Oh well take it as it comes. 3-0-2 is not bad.
+1. Every point we get while Henrique is out and before the trade is a giant plus. And we really did not play a bad game. Was a earned point any way you look at it.

There's a difference from hitting the post and completely missing the net, Elias almost scored, josefson sent his a foot wide of the goal.

Josefson with below average scoring skills would be a top 6 center easily. A world class skater, good playmaker with elite defense. But he can't score and maybe never will.

Also playing with garbage teammates though.

Was Kovy on the ice for the Bruins goal tonight? He's really gotten quiet these last few games.. which sucks because we need him to produce, especially with Henrique out.

We are not watching the same player here. Josefson has been stronger on the puck than he was before, he doesn't look out of place at all. I agree his shot could use a lot of work, but he isn't a liability by any means.
I was watching a reply of either Hortons goal or a OT Bruin chance and you could Josefson skating hard to get back and Kovalchuk in the neutral zone staring at the odd man rush.

A little presumptuous. Neither of Josefson's injuries were due to him being fragile. Anybody would have those same injuries if they fell into the boards shoulder first or got slashed in the hands.

Josefson is getting close to those scoring chances. There was a young Devil last season that had a TON of scoring chances before he broke out and starting capitalizing on them also. He turned out pretty well.

Josefson also seems to me more like a playmaker then a finisher, a guy who will get 10 goals but have 30 assists.

Josefson doesn't need to score. Put him with a good winger and he'll rack up the assists and the winger will put up the goals. Jo played well.

8 pts out of a possibility of 10... That's real solid cause I wouldn't of thought that 3 weeks ago.

I'm happy with the point, I expected a 4-1 bruins win. Good to see us able to hang with the big teams without henrique

Doesn't help that he's playing with the fourth line. You try being a plus player skating with Janssen.

We need a move. Lou needs to get rid of a extra D, get Larsson in, and increase our depth on the O pronto.
Zubrus actually has a very acurate wrist shot.

Love Moose, but the 3rd period goal and the second shootout goal were both softies.

The shootout tonight completely demonstrated our lack of forward depth. Kovy, Elias, Zajac, Clarkson.....then that's all folks!

The fact that he played 30 games in the AHL makes me a little less afraid he'll go down any minute but I'd be lying if I said the thought hadn't crossed my mind considering his history.

lol I can't believe people are bringing up his plus/minus. Look at his career and look at the plus/minus there in both Albany and New Jersey.

So fickle.
