I remember a hilarious quote from Lemaire when he was coaching Gaborik in Minnesota and a reporter asked him how often he told Gaborik that he needed to work harder.

Lemaire's response was something like, "I tell him to work harder all the time. In practice, in games. When he eats. When he sleeps. When he goes for a dump."

It's in there around the 7:30 mark, along with more classic Lemaire responses.

Hey guys, why don't we give Joe Whitney an NHL contract?

22 goals, 22 assists in 53 games played and is a +15...I went to a few Albany games and he seems to have great vision

I think I would take him over Pesonen, definitely over Sestito and other absolutely useless call ups that don't address our needs.

Not saying Pesonen's useless either, that was directed at Sestito, Janssen.

Elias and Zidlicky are on the points on the first PP unit with Zajac, Henrique and Clarkson up front.

We're boned. Though maybe this finally teaches them that the point of a PP is not to outskill the other team, it's to use numbers to your advantage to set up high-quality chances.

I don't mind those PP lines. I think Harrold and Greene are decent at the point. Lokti is going to have to carry the puck a lot on the second unit.

If Bernier parks it in the crease and D'Agostini posts up, I'm okay with the 2nd unit.

why do the devils bring up people from AHL that are not as strong as sestito , I mean how many times are we going to try this guy, hes just not going to work out. If you look at Kostopoluos(this was a bad move in my opinion and I hope I eat my words) he has no history of scoring of any kind, I do not see any value in him at all. Im also glad we gave matteau a NHL look, but if you look at Albany's roster, we should be bringing up Anderson again and even better, Joe Whitney. I just really wish Beuche 1) wasn't on a roll and im sure wants to finish his year to break any records he could break, and 2) that guy needs to beef up a little. Hes older then matteau, yet we gave him a look. So our future is bright with him.

one more rant. Bernier and Carter really have to step it up, they are stinking up this year. I also know you are all digging Harold right now, that's cause hes pinching in, but hes already a -5 with only 10 games played.


Bring matteau back and scratch Kostopoluos. Matteau is able to return if called on.


As a positive post I do think we can cover Kovi, as we always have, but not for long. This is a good gut check to the rest of the team. We do need another tag team partner for zidlikcy on the power play though

Am I missing something ???? Carter and Bernier have been 2 of our best forwards this year. One of the dumbest things ive read in a while

Also Matteau cannot come back from the QMJHL.

Elias on the PP point sounds like trouble. Didn't we do that before to very poor results?

bernier 6G 3A 9P -6
carter 3G 7A 10P -3

in contrast

elias 10G 19A 29P +8
gionta 3G 7A 10P +2 CENTERMAN and only won u can probably count on to win faceoffs and give 100%
lotionov 5G 3A 8P 0 only half the games played




just look at http://devils.nhl.com/club/stats.htm...20122013&srt=p

Shoulda claimed Dvorak, send Sestito down. Low risk reward type. If he works, great, if not, bring Sestito back up.

I respectfully (somehow) disagree with the notion that +/- is a goto stat to judge the quality of a forward.

If so, that Kovalchuk guy really sucks.

This is just ridiculous. Carter and Bernier have been great all year. Stats mean nothing when your dealing with 3rd and 4th liners. How in the world can you compare top 6 players (Elias and Loktionov) to bottom 6 guys and then say that their stats are worse. Obviously they will be worse.

And Matteau cannot come back
