Skating can be improved. He just needs to focus on it.

He couldnt cut the mustard in the AHL.

God damnit. Things that have absolutely nothing to do with reality are against us. We might as well trade Boucher right now.

Damon Severson had a goal and assist tonight. Now has 28 pts in his last 24 games. 38 pts in 50 games this year.

Incredible stuff. I'd be impressed with that stat line from a forward. From a defenceman it's very impressive.

DVR'd the Michigan/Western Michigan game from Saturday and watched it last night (albeit only was paying attention to Merrill). Mac Bennett is hurt, so Michigan's poor defensive depth was exposed again. They ended up using 4 forwards on the PP, with Trouba manning the point on the 1st unit and Merrill on the 2nd.

Merrill was on the ice for WM's first goal. He got outmuscled for the puck a couple of times, but contained his man to the outside. The goal was a weak wrist shot from the point which got deflected on its way in. Michigan's goalie badly overplayed the initial shot and whiffed on the redirection. Very weak goal, but I didn't like seeing Merrill losing puck battles to a much smaller opponent.

Merrill was also on the ice for a PP against, but he saved a goal as the goalie was again way out of position. The WM had a gaping net to shoot at, but Merrill blocked the shot. WM would score about 10 seconds later in the sequence as the goalie still hadn't recovered.

Merrill looked confident handling the puck on the PP, but there just isn't any chemistry with the Michigan PP this year.

Losing puck battles does not sound good.

Hopefully that is a result of the time he has missed in the past 2 seasons.

I`m afraid not. I`ve seen this many times. Getting outmuscled has always been one of his weaknesses.

Duclair + Erne: Creative combination, unsure how either will do alone. Erne will probably do better than Duclair.

MacKinnon + Drouin: Should cycle. Don't. Need a good coach. MacKinnon will be good because he's got the physical skill to do well. Drouin gives the puck away a lot by trying too many moves.

I hope we can Erne somehow, but don't want to be in a position where we can draft him

I think it should be at the Devils camp to either make the team or play a season in Albany if the coaches do not think he is ready.

I wanted Merrill to leave Michigan after his 1st year. My head may explode if he stays next year.

I would think Merrill will turn pro. He suffered what could have been a career ending injury this season, so I have to imagine he wants to lock in $2.1 million in salary rather than risk getting nothing to play another year in college.

Merrill should be in Albany next season, I think. Not much left for him to learn in the NCAA. I feel bad for him that he hasn't really had a full season with Michigan for one reason or another.

Reece Scarlett is on a hot streak. 6 game point streak, 20 pts in his last 20 games.

I like Severson a lot, I think he's going to be better than most of our current D prospects.

Severson definitely could be the "offensive" d-man we have lacked since Neids left. Scarlett could be that guy too. Both have good upside. In a few years after the Marty era, the Devils should at least have a very solid d corp with all the young guys coming threw the pipeline.

You're ignoring Merrill, who probably has the biggest offensive potential of all of them.

Severson is rapidly becoming my favorite of our defense prospects, though. With Larsson, Merrill, Severson, Gelinas, Urbom, Burlon, Scarlett... we're stacked.

Merrill/Michigan on tonight at 6:30pm on the Big Ten Network. It's against Michigan State, so hopefully the Wolverines step it up.

Watched both and all I can say is that I like Severson more than Merrill.

I hope someone will upload the game so I can watch it later.
