Seriously, just put Harrold in. Sestitio is a hard-working player but he shouldn't play in the NHL at this time of the year.

I wonder how Janssen, and Boulton feel that they're upstairs, and someone goes down to injury, and Sestito is called up, and instead of dressing one of them, and sitting Sestito upstairs, Sestito dresses?

I hate how paranoid I am right now. It's like I'm 100% positive the Devils are going to lose tonight.

I dont get this either. Harrold greatly exceeded my expectations playing as a forward, and DUH, he's pretty solid defensively in that role as well. I see no point in playing Timmy over Harrold Nothing against Sestito, hell, maybe he even scores a goal tonight, but I just dont understand the logic.

Especially after Boulton gave an interview right before the playoffs began about wanting to prove in these last few games he can play in the playoffs.

i think by this point in their careers they understand what their roles are.

boulton's been quoted as saying being an enforcer is a tough way to make an easy living. to me that says he knows he isn't out there to score goals.

i'm also sure he understands that this was probably the worst season of his career. he didn't earn any favors this season.

He has no place in the playoffs, and to be honest I hope we somehow move his contract before next season.

The choice to dress Sestito over Harrold probably has a lot to do with countering Rinaldo. And I trust Harrold to stay disciplined more than Sestito. So I don't think I like this one.

If thats the case then why not Mills? Isn't he the one that beat the crap out of Rinaldo this year?

The era of the "NHL Enforcer" is slowly coming to an end. I honestly do not see the need anymore. Especially on a team like the Devils that has several players that can play ice hockey, and can also fight if it's absolutely necessary, which it almost never is.

If we won a game without Kovalchuk we can win without Carter.

Sestito just needs to do four things:
-don't take stupid penalty's
-forecheck the hell outta of the flyer defense
-take the body
-throw pucks at net

I would prefer Harrold though.

LETS GO DEVILS!

I thought Couturier said he was fine to play today? Not sure if that necessarily means he will but I have to think he'd take the warmup along with Rinaldo. If this is true then why not dress both Sestito and Harrold in for the warmups at least (or is that not within the rules, Im not sure on that). Then wait for the Flyers to submit their lineups for the games (I think they submit them first because they're the road team, but again not sure) then play Harrold or Sestito accordingly?

Either way this wont happen because Harrold already said he wasnt playing but I have to think that could have been a completely viable option.

Agreed I just like the idea of having one guy like Cam Janssen on the roster just as an option the "extra" forward.

The Devils want everybody at the game with a smartphone to put this on when the lights go out for the intro:

I don't think we will get rid of his contract. This being the reason. I think they wanna keep him for next year for the role he is in.

I would really hope he doesn't get 50 games a year. I don't think Pete likes him in the lineup, but Lou probably thinks we should play him so we're not paying him for nothing.

We did great this year, but I think we might have been able to win the Division or finished in 4th had we had the 4th line we have now. I know they haven't produced against these Flyers, but a couple games especially the ones we lost to chump teams like Montreal in December, and Tampa Bay in February we could have won with that extra contribution. You know those close games like those ones I mentioned. Not to mention Janssen caused the breakaway goal by Marty St Louis that day that got the scoring started for TB, and his hat trick.

I, for one, am not unhappy to see Sestito in.

That kid can forecheck like a mother.

This would be cool but if they really want it to happen they need to put it up everywhere at the rock so people know. Also mentioning it before it starts a few times over the PA system with the link on the scoreboard would hopefully get everyone into it. But if it worked it would be a cool site.
