"New Jersey top-20 deep in defensive and goaltending depth"

Tell that to the main board

Wow, I had no clue Scarlett was having such a great season.

Awesome. Thanks a lot. Giant picture of Josefson at the start caught me off guard for a second. Its like he's looking into my soul... And I kinda don't mind it. He has such nice hair..

Great job as always.

Boucher's description are the same words scouts and hockey people described Luc Robitaille before he came into the NHL. Let's hope he can be half the player Luc was in the NHL.

Really great work. Kinda wish Josefson was a 7.5 instead of a 7, but that's not much to complain about.

Great read as always, Jared. Thanks for all the work you put into these, and your relative objectivity compared to many of the other team writers.

Thank you.

I'm a little surprised to see Josefson and Taormina not be graduated yet.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

Not only has Scarlett doubled his offensive output from last year, his +/- rating over the second half the season has improved dramatically. I don't put a lot of stock into his +/- rating given the role he plays on the team, but still, looks good on his resume.

Boucher's all-around game obviously still needs work, but the hands, shot and goal scoring ability that he has can't be taught.

I flip-flopped on Josefson's rating from 7.0-7.5B quite a few times. He's shown great improvement over the last couple of weeks, but I think we need a full season from him to see what he's really capable of.

It was pretty close for both of them. Josefson definitely would've graduated had he not been hurt early in the season. He'll definitely be off the list next fall. Taormina's stuck in the 7th defense spot right now and whenever Tallinder comes back, he'll be bumped back to 8. Didn't see him getting to that 65 games played mark for his career this season.

We clearly need to draft a defenseman or goalie in the 1st round

I really want to know what he does with his hair, I'm pretty sure it's hair wax but does he comb it before and how long is it really?

Thank you, Jared. I am always looking forward to your articles.

One thing that did slightly surprise me is Urbom over Gelinas, especially considering what a good rookie season Gelinas is having in the AHL.

All of these young Swedish players have such nice, well kept hair. Their mothers must be very proud of them. And my mother is probably only more disappointed in mine each time she sees them

Speaking of Scarlett, why the hell is he rated so well in NHL12? His potential is incredible. I didn't know he was such a valuable prospect.

A bit surprised Gelinas is 5th. Would have figured 2nd or 3rd.

My friend is from Sweden, and his hair is spectacular. It must be genetic. It's gorgeous.

I'm still really high on Clermont. I think he's legit.

I still have my hopes pinned to Wedgewood. He plays a hybrid style, he plays the puck well, and he's got a good glove...

I think Gelinas is in the right spot on the list. He looks promising, but he was always a project pick and so far we're rating him based on a good half a season in the AHL. Urbom is simply more developed and deserves to be higher.

I remember someone said he was projected as a 2nd/3rd rounder coming into the season before the draft, but then he had an injury? Or something. I don't remember. Anyway, he fell really far. What I do remember is that when he was drafted a lot of people said they thought we might have a potential sleeper pick in him.

If I were doing up the list right now, I might've had Gelinas higher given how he's come on lately. Urbom isn't as dynamic or spectacular as Gelinas, but he's a little safer and more projectable at this point at this stage in his development. If Gelinas keeps this up though, he's going to keep on moving up the list. He's exceeded my expectations already for his first year as a pro.

I still have high hopes for Clermont too, especially after his performance in the QMJHL playoffs last year. He's going to have to compete to move up the goaltending ladder with all the other bodies the Devils have there, but I think he's up to the challenge.
