no, it means you should relax and wait to see what our team looks like in 2 months because it wont look the same as it does now.

You were making that comment well after the Zids trade

I'm not sure I should be posting this next sentence on this board, but holding on to our 8 defensemen, regardless if it's managing assets correctly or not, is worth it if it wins you the cup.

bring it on

It definitely is an overreaction. Larsson's development is not going to be made or broken by a two week stint on the bench. I would much rather he be playing, of course, but for now he's fine. Start complaining if he's still permanently benched in a month.

I think there has to be a trade in the works. But even if there isn't, Vinnie is right. The defence might look sloppy, but it has been effective at limiting goals. No reason to change when we keep getting points.

Watch, next year it will be the goalies he's complaining about.

Glad to see Larsson back in there - for the Devils to do some damage in the playoffs this year, I think they're going to need him to be a regular in the lineup so he can develop and elevate his game for the playoffs and bring some offense. A little surprising to see Fayne sit, but I thought that with all the depth on D that DeBoer would rotate guys in & out given the condensed schedule this season...or at least until a trade is worked out, which you have to figure Lou is working on to get some help up front.

As much as I hate to see the Devils burn a year or two on Matteu's contract, I think he needs to stick around as well.

Surprised that Harrold hasn't dressed as a forward yet though - has to be an improvement over Barch.

EDIT: According to Rich Chere, Fayne is out tonight with an arm injury...makes sense now.

Why ? to me it just says that with Larsson, Fayne is unlikely to be traded.

I am guessing Fayne may be a little banged up. No point for anyone on our D to play with any injury.

Because you don't sit players playing well to let them know that they won't get traded. That doesn't make any sense.

The "injury" part does though.

You don't sit players you're ok to trade, that's what I was saying. As stated, he seems to be injured anyway.

We still needed more offensive help from the backend but like I said, Salvador turned into Niedermayer, wich gave everyone a false impression that our defence was rock solid at both ends of the ice.

I'll say the same thing if we're still at the bottom of the barrel in terms of production regarding the blueline in the next few weeks, wich is something we've been dealing with for the past 6 or 7 years now. We all saw what it did for our cup run, unless I missed something.

nobody wants to say "clarktard" while he's our leading scorer - you can't hold that against him.

Neither did I, but with the injury it makes sense. We can afford to play it safe, so we will.

True. They won't sit the guys they are showcasing. Fayne was probably safe anyway because of his great contract, but this makes it even less likely that he will be traded.

Scratching Larsson to me makes no sense since he's on an ELC and still waivers-exempt---have him develop in Albany. (He played tonight with Fayne injured...but instead of scratching him, he should have been in Albany - and saving the Devils a good chunk of change too.)

I'd rather have him in NJ, getting time with DeBoer and Stevens than to go play for an Albany team that is not so great.
This way he's game-ready in the NHL system as opposed to adjusting from the AHL.

Over a short term, of course. Not an extensive period of time.
