And 3 out of the 4 players the Devils signed scored more goals than Kovalchuk did last season and 2 out of the 4 scored more goals than Clarkson did last season....Hmmm?

What will I see? I don't understand? Will I see him 3rd on my team in goals like he was for the Wings? I really wont mind that.


He uses his shot effectively from everything I've seen, he goes to the net and works well in traffic in the offensive zone. What part of that isn't true?

Not unless Henrique becomes Henrique Zetterberg.

Not unless what? What are you talking about? I'm about his shot and your're talking in some cryptic code?

I see you really have nothing to add to the conversation.

what about Patrik Elias? I would say their playmaking skills are comparable.

That's a solid club.

Are you telling me because Zetterberg gets the primary assist on the most of his goals he is a byproduct?

Does Zetterberg really have anything to do with this even though he gets the primary?




or here

Who is he the byproduct of here? Interesting that he is so sheltered that the coach has him out in the last minute of a playoff game in the shooter slot.

Those probably won't even be the lines, but I added some rough goal estimates. A few of them may be a bit ambitious, but most fall in line with how they have produced recently or over their career. Of course health will play into that big time with guys like Clowe and Jagr, but none of those totals are out of the realm of possibility. I'd say it's a solid lineup top to bottom. The only downside is we lack a true 1st line, but instead will be relying on 4 strong lines. If they get close to those totals, we should be sitting middle of the pack in terms of goals for.

What are you talking about. That is a damn good team. NO superstars but they have the next best thing and that is depth all around. Josefson has had a great preseason and may finally be developing into a top 6 center. Personally I love henrique's two way game at center too much to play him at wing. Id go with a Clowe Henrique zubrus thrid line, put brunner in a top 6 role and that is a solid team.

Exactly. No superstar, but a ton of depth. I really like what Lou put together.

If you want to talk about the Devils center depth, start a topic on the main board.

Center depth? on the team they have Zajac, Elias, Henrique, Loktionov, Josefson, and Zubrus all potential Centers. Really interchangeable parts.

Funny, Brunner has always been treated as if he was benefiting of his line mates.
I believe that he makes people better ... and by scoring ... his mates get more assists.
and he assists well, allowing mates to score.
He makes things happen on the ice.

He isn't a parasite ! on the contrary, he produces.

Now they just have to get Jamie Langenbrunner back, and after that they could sign this kid and convert him to center. http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=203259

Langenbrunner - Langen - Brunner

20 for Brunner isn't ambitious ... mark my words.
