You don't get a plus rating for being on the ice during PP goals.

is there a timeframe for Zubrus's return? I'd like to see a Zubrus-Josefson-Butler 3rd line.

Crosby is a piece of ****. You'd think someone like him would avoid the elbows to the head but I guess not.

It might be impolitic of me, but I hope the Devils are slumping going into the trade deadline.

Barch is a goon but it's great to see that he also can play hockey.

I keep my fingers crossed Loktionov fits into the system, on paper I'm drooling over a Josefson-Loktionov-Butler line.

Greene is playing his best hockey of his career. Legit 1st pairing defence-man.

There were a lot of powerplays. Larsson, for silly reasons, doesn't get any PP time.
Well you can't exactly take Kovy off the point, or Greene with the way he's piling them up lately. Zidlicky's the only guy you could conceivably take off the PP but if he's not running the PP then what use is he in general?

And anyway, the last two periods the PP was the best it's been since the days of Slava Fetisov running it (behind the bench).

I don't know that it has to be a major move? Those classic Lou moves always look inconsequential at the moment but pay major dividends later.

I really really really really liked the Kovalchuk-Greene(or Zidlicky)-Butler umbrella PP setup. Please more of this.

Larsson will be on the PP next year if we don't resign Zidlicky I think.

It's pretty obvious, Matteau and Kovalchuk aren't puck possession players, Zajac needs help cycling the puck there coz the 1st line still spends too little time in the o-zone. It's all good for the moment but Matteau must not be on the 1st line for the playoffs.

The better option, a rental top 6 winger. No need to sell the farm at the deadline when Lou will have plenty of cap space to go after one in the off-season.

The NHLN recap of the game is AWFUL. The analyst sounds super depressed to talk about the Devils scoring, and says that Clarkson was taking a run at Crosby. What a tool.

What do you think about adding Jagr?

Personally, my top choice is still Tomas Kopecky, although that's factoring in quality of play and probable player availability. Kulemin would be preferable, but I doubt he gets traded.

NJ 3, Pit 1. Lou Lamoriello for president. Amazing how Devils bleed stars every year and just keep contending.

When Zubrus is back, one of Matteau, Lotkinov or Butler is sitting.. Another top 6 winger pushes two of those three out of the line-up. Of course I would love to get a legit top 6 winger but that'd be a tough roster decision to figure out who gets to stay.

I can see Carter being the odd man out also though.. he's sort of the most unused forward on our 3rd line. Too much chemistry there though.
