Because neither one is very good defensively. They both rely on keeping the opponets on their heels.

I thought Matteau's speed was fine. But there are things he can work on. He could easily stick on the team, but I think I'd prefer that he go back to the Q and develop his offensive game further instead of risking stunting his offensive game. Remember what the Flyers did to Zubrus.

I agree, Larsson should definitely be in. It's hard to justify sitting Volch though. His salary is high, and his play hasn't been so bad to merit a benching. We'll see what Lou comes up with.

If he can play like that at a relatively consistent rate, we're golden.
I like hearing that praise from Patty. Definitely some chemistry brewing for that line.

Ya, I noticed times when he was out of position too. But his backchecking was excellent, and he was much more responsible with the puck than he has been in the past. Definitely a step forward for him defensively.

Great pass from Tallinder to Kovy that helped set up the Zajac goal

Aided immeasurably by a terrible Islanders change. But definitely required good vision to see that the opportunity for the stretch pass was there.

Too bad both of them are overpaid and like Marty, will likely fall apart and lose a few limbs in the next year or so.

Damn that pass was so beautiful though. No offense to Zajac but a monkey could have put that in.. it was gorgeous.

Weakest link.
I know he's your favourite d-men but if you can't say that he's our weakest link, you are either Volchenkov himself or a relative, one or the other.

He's +2 and was absolutely irrelevant and both goals, he plays the most minutes short handed cause he's average at even strength and the PP isn't a option so they have to play him somewhere and none of his shots were threatening.

He's our weakest link, he's also our highest paid d-men and he's eating up a roster spot that can be used on the cornerstone of our franchise, which we drafted 4th overall a couple of years ago.

Or Larsson just isn't ready in the Coaches opinion.

Take off your blinders DATW. Volch, a long with the defense as a whole, had a great game.

Deboer himself said that Larsson will play a big role this year. No way he would say that if he didnt think he was ready.

Look a couple of pages back and you'll see I'm not the only one who thinks that way... I might be thinking it the longest but regardless, Volchenkov is our weakest link.

So Larsson isn't ready despite playing 65 games in his rookie year and getting injured along the process, DeBoer saying he'll be a key part of this team and Lou not sending him in Albany?

Solid analysis Brit

Couldn't agree more. He's just not very good.

I would agree with you if DeBoer would've said that he had a average camp... But he said the complete opposite.

Anyways, the last thing I want is for Larsson to watch from the press box. Tallinder or Volchenkov, one of those guys has to go in order for us to fit Larsson on our roster cause you can't healthy scratch someone earning between 3M$ and 4.25M$.

If you take all our D men minus Larsson and Harrold they are all in the same class. Volchenkov is still pretty young (30) compared to Salvador (36), Tallinder (34), and Zidlicky (35). He plays the dirty minutes and has a shot that seems to always get on net. I do not understand why everyone thinks he is so much worse than the rest of the group when they are all pretty equal.

Win the opening game scoring 2 goals only, letting 19 shots go through to Marty.

Biggest problem: Larsson is not playing. Yeah right.
