Wish he would get into a game. I would scratch a few guys for him at the moment. Zid has been a bigger cone than Volch since game 2. Our PP isn't working with the one man advantage anyway.

Prove me wrong Adam.
Who exactly are you referring to with this? Who are the previous defencemen he has not developed well?

He doesn't play for four games and suddenly HF thinks the Devils are ruining his development. I think I trust DeBoer and Lou a bit more than the random clods on the main board.

no we're not. SOME of us are. Some others are just waiting for a coaching staff to figure out what the hell they are doing at forward then start adjusting the D lineup to it's normal rest of the season mode.

I already now what Henrique has done, while Larsson is still a question mark. I pick Henrique. What rookie has scored bigger goals recently then this kid.

It's a tough choice for me, but I'll go with Henrique... for now

Henrique has proven that regardless of the league he plays in, he'll perform at a top level. He plays the game with so much smarts, isn't scared of anything and sees the ice real well. I think he'll be the backbone to our offense for years to come.

Larsson will be a great d-men but there's something that rubs me the wrong way when I watch him play. It might be his lack of "presence" on the ice, despite being built like a giant for his age, or that mean streak he doesn't really have... IDK.

To me, Henrique has the total package and he really reminds me of Mike Richards, a player that can do it all at the highest of levels.

In terms of value to the team, it's Henrique. In terms of what one or the other would bring back in a trade, it's Larsson.

Larsson still needs to show us that he will not be Craig Wolanin Part-2.

Zid has been awful. PIM's, and guys going around him like he's standing in sand (which, of course, leads to more PIMs).

oduya is a +8. come at me, board. where are all of the people that argued that zidlicky was the best option, an amazing PMD, etc? he's been awful. maybe he'll find his groove, and he has shown some promise and good mentality during PP time, but thats it.

Zids has been pretty bad this season thus far, but he did make the great pass to Kovy in OT vs Washingston, not many defensemen make that heady pass.

I would be shocked if that happened. Larsson gives every indication that he will be a core player for the Devils for many years.

Wolanin was pretty alright for about 10 years before he went downhill. Never played another NHL game after he was 30 though.

Larsson will be better than that, but he can't prove it sitting in the box. This is exactly what I was afraid of too. When we signed Bryce I said if we keep 8 defensemen on opening night I had a bad feeling about Larsson. He would either be in the minors, or be the odd man out at the beginning. Unfortunately I've been right, but I'm not happy about. Would have much rather been wrong. No one agreed with me either.

flip the question around and ask which one would be the bigger loss if he went down on LTIR and missed the rest of the season.

Henrique, but that's not really a fair question because of our relative depth at those positions is very different.

I just ignore them. I trust Lou's judgment over random clowns who barely see him play.
