That's really weird.

If you let your eyes unfocus, the whole sentence looks disjointed.

At this point, Devils just need someone in the line-up to give them four solid lines. We just need guys with a motor that work hard along the boards and can give us seve to eight reliable minutes a night.

Who knows, hopefully, he can slot right in next to Carter-Gionta when everyone is healthy and allow Bernier to play more minutes.

I think I am just jaded against TKO as Sutter used him in the top 6 when we had injuries last year over much more skilled players. He is a great team guy, hopefully he works out well for you guys.

Devils have been good with that. Guys like Bernier and Ponikarovsky were hated by their previous teams for the bigger roles they were playing. They come to NJ and play to their strengths, a solid third/fourth line role, and suddenly, they look like a new player with little expectations.

Totally didn't see this coming when they could have just signed him themselves all season long. A weird move for sure but Lou might have just saw the opportunity to claim and therefore got to send Janssen back down.

Should be a decent fourth liner in New Jersey. Works hard and gives it his all every shift. Plays a physical game even though he's often on the receiving end in fights. Not much offense but that's not his role.

As long as he's better than Cam Janssen.

Thank goodness he was claimed, I did not want to see him as the depth guy for the Pens. We have Craig Adams, a more useless version of him seemed pointless.
