I liked Ferriero. Hopefully this means that Stu Pickles is in the press box. JT is 19, but the Devils gave Matteau a try for 5 games this season, and he's a year younger. Although I don't think they're playing him and have yet to send him back to juniors.
Like Mashinter being brought up. Miller, on the other hand, I don't really get. The kid looks out matched in Hartford. Maybe it's just to get his head right with a cup of coffee?
I like the idea of giving the kid an idea what it's like to be with the big club at the practice facility and at MSG. Doesn't mean he has to play, but it gives him more to play for if/when he's sent back to the Whale.
JT Miller will likely only get 5 games cup o coffee, unless Stepan is traded for D upgrade.
Gee, and SO SO SO MANY GUYS said there was NO POSSIBLE WAY he could be ready yet, even if it was not to finish, but just to skate fast and set up Ws.
I take my lumps so when I get it right despite all the calls to the contrary, I am within rights to say I'm vindicated. They would not bring him up and slow his development unless they either wanted to use him, or showcase him. Even if they just wanted to give him a taste to encourage him further, they wouldn't do that if playing him was a liability.
