Our shootout attempts were hideous overall, but that is the least of our issues as a hockey club.

He played a little under 15 minutes tonight, so year, a third of his night was played with those guys. Even if he was playing 20 minutes a night, it would still be 1/4 of his night.

Yes he was. Almost 5 games without a goal against with 25 minutes TOI. Streak is over.

It's a little soon to get so down on him. He is creating chances, and making good plays. Sooner or later they will start to go in.

Josefson also seems to me more like a playmaker then a finisher, a guy who will get 10 goals but have 30 assists.
And that's what I'm expecting from him. It's clear he's more of a distributor than a finisher. Very good vision and passing ability, but a relatively weak shot.

Or getting points.

Hmm so this logic is only applicable when discussing Josefson, but not Tedenby? One would think Josefson with his "elite" defensive skill would be able to somewhat compensate.

And btw, it's ******** using the 4th line excuse for him. He plays 17 minutes a game. Janssen plays 5.

Oh, I didnt mean he played on the line for 5 minutes. I saw him start being on that line at around the 7 minute mark of the 3rd. Soo there is no way he got 5 minutes of time from that

Josefson gets chances on the top unit too so that would be something to consider.

I don't have an issue with his game yet really. Yes he has made some bad turnovers but this team was doing that nonstop for 4 games. His offense is what scares me a lot, that and his injury history.

Has to stay healthy and develop a shot. No goalie is going to respect him deking when he can't keep them locked onto his shot. That must come first before trying to put him into a shootout, and that is something he has not shown in his career yet. That is why I don't put him out in the shootout, it is a waste of an opportunity.

In this thread we have Devils fans disparaging an excellent young defensive forward because he isn't scoring at the rate they'd like. What a strange world.

Josefson's other skills are the REASON he's not useless while not scoring, while Tedenby is since he really doesn't have any skill beyond stickwork and speed, which result in no offense. Why do you think YaYo's getting 15 minutes a night while Tedenby barely sees the ice?

Like I've said, Josefson gets a pass around here because he's responsible defensively. But as I've said before he looks like he would become a John Madden type player, rather than the Elias that everyone is projecting him to be.

They fumbled the puck all night long and basically chased it with Boston having a huge possession advantage.

They got weared down and a horrific line change led to a 3 on 2 which bit em.

Kovalchuk with zero effort tonight, jag off! Green and Zidlicky look aweful. A Train and Tallinder were our best tonight. I wonder if we really have to wait for the 10th game to make a move.......

Zajac played 14 minutes even strength, Kovy played 17. Matteau played 9. Josefson picked up most of those extra top line minutes and picked up some Kovy minutes on the 4th line, so he probably played somewhere around 4-5 extra minutes with 1 or 2 of the top forwards.

I'll gladly take another John Madden in his prime. Even he had a better scoring touch than YaYo does

Madden did get started much, much later though. YaYo's only 20, Madden was what, 26 in his rookie year?

It's not that he isn't scoring (at least for me). It's the fact that some people write him in as a top 6 forward with Patrik Elias-like potential. I haven't seen any of that.

If he was strictly a third-line center asked to play a defensive role with minimal offensive expectations, I have no problem with him.

Kovalchuk broke up loads of plays on the backcheck. Even bruins fans took notice, how are people here not?

where'd the Josefson heat come from?

Reflecting a bit further (or calming down), despite the softies, Hedberg played very well for not being in net since last April. Nice to have reliable backup goaltending.

I consider this a bounce back game given that they cleaned up a lot of the mistakes made in the Montreal game. Know I'm beating a dead horse here, but definitely need more offensive depth. Confident Lou will provide when the time is most opportune.

For some reason the people that bash Josefson the most are the biggest Tedenby fanboys. As if you're not allowed to say one is actually an NHL player and the other isn't, so the one that is gets mealy-mouthed by the ones who want to make Tedenby out to be this great player that isn't getting a chance.
