Same reason we do or don't do everything else. Because Lou says so.

I don't like it anyway. We've already got enough on our hands with Chico motor mouthing through the game, there's no room for a third set of lungs in there.

I hate when Pierre takes away from play-by-play time when things are actually happening on the ice.

Happy?
He sees 12 minutes with ES+PP time combined. Our fourth line plays what...3-4 minutes?

Josefson's numbers are putrid but he's looked just fine. Very fast, excellent penalty killer, good passer. Who cares about stats this early? His lack of finish is concerning, but if he can kill penalties like he has been and can hopefully rack up some dimes, he'll be a useful third line player.

~10 ES, ~2:30PK, ~1:30PP to be a little more exact.

Those PK minutes mean a hell of a lot more to me than being a -5.

Just a very odd choice for one.

(and no, just because I suggested he might be traded does not mean I'm not a fan of his)
Hype backlash. The current meme with the fanbase seems to be that once Lou/Conte finishes saying your name at an NHL draft and you're a forward BAM! you're now a guaranteed 30 goals or more per year NHL player. I guess some people are getting sick of it.

The whole "he's great defensively!" thing is like a consolation prize. It only gets brought up in response to the criticism, then it's right back to "30 goals per year baby! Any moment now!" with all the blame being put on his linemates or the coach having an anti-devils draft pick conspiracy that Lou is somehow powerless to do anything about.

There's nothing wrong with him being a third line C who's good at PK and has a decent eye for passing, but as long as people are going to insist that,because he was drafted by the Devils, he's going to be way more than that, you're going to have people criticizing him for not living up to it, fair or not.

Also should note that he's playing more SH minutes per game than any other forward on the team.

Speaks for itself how the coaches feel, no?

But Josefson has never really had a hype train. Nobody expected him to be a huge scorer. At best I was thinking Elias-lite, because they have similar playmaking styles. At the draft, Pierre called him the long term replacement for Madden, and that's what he's looking like right now. So why the backlash, if he was never hyped up to begin with?

Isn't that just because it's Pierre more than anything though?

Eh, it proved Tedenby can't play d. At least JJ is for the most part.

I thought that was a total lead in for Volch's shot, and assist. Couldn't believe Dano didn't jump on that, or that Deb was that weird about the whole sequence.

I don't know -I heard lots of Zetterberg comparisons.

The kid is young. He had a two or three game period where he was absolutely everywhere, had great chances and played a complete game and then they demoted him to the 4th line and he disappeared.

I don't expect anything of him with Barch as his linemate. When CBG goes back to being the 4th line, Josefson will put up some points.

I know this has been mentioned at length but it bears repeating. Deb and Sherry are awesome.

I didn't like Deb when she first came on as host, but she's not only grown on me, but has my complete respect. Love her now. I think part of it is she's really grown with the team and you can tell she loves them as much as Dano, Chico (and of course, us) do. The fact that she actually cried after a playoff win last year is proof of that. It's awesome.

As for yesterday, we lucked out a couple times with the Lightening's chances, but overall we looked awesome. A complete team effort from top to bottom for a full sixty minutes. We need to bring that consistency every game from here on out.

I lasted 9 minutes watching the replay with Chico's crap. Then I had to change to the lightning feed. He really has no idea whats happening most of the time and just tries to make up reasons why the opposition team is terrible.

Ya Josefson looks like he will become a 3rd line guy with good defensive awareness. If he can get a shot someday he has all the tools to move up the chart.

Josefson has enough hockey IQ to someday become a playmaking top 6-center. Furthermore he can always practice shooting. Durability is probably his biggest obstacle.

Yayo's playing great on the PK and has shown some good smarts and play making ability when he gets to play with some skilled guys. I don't have a big problem with him other than I wish he would bury the ****ing puck already! He's had some glorious chances to no avail.

Zharkovitis indeed.

I always saw Yayo as a 10g - 30/35 assist player. Hopefully he's more but that production coupled with his defensive play is fine by me.
