hope B^2 can find a niche and stick with the preds. now, can the devils have halischuk back please?
I second this.
Butler's like that guy that his shot and offense is pretty good, but everything else is just meh.
He had a good four or five games but his play had really tailed off of late and it his time on the big club was up. I think most Devils fans anticipated him being placed on waivers.
The biggest problem in NJ was he was stuck on the fourth line. DeBoer was unwilling to break up Carter-Gionta-Bernier which was our third line and he wasn't knocking Clarkson or Kovalchuk to the fourth line. He was usually stuck on a line with: Barch/Matteau-Josefson/Loktionov as his LW-C combo. He had some time with Zajac-Kovalchuk on the off-wing too and he looked pretty good, as well as on the 2nd PP, but with the emergence of Loktionov, he is likely to take this spot.
