How is the title misleading? Did Josefson not get sent down to Albany? Unless you're referring to the Poll part of it still being in it.

Barch, Butler and Carter are a -2, that's the second worst total on the team. When 'one' guy has such a disproportionate total compared to the rest of his team, that's a problem.
Not making excuses for him, just wondering in what situations they happened in.

Actually, no he won't. See above.

I don't mind this move. I'm still a Josefson supporter, but for now I'd like to see what Lokti can do.

I like Josefson, have defended him a lot, but he deserved to go down. He has not been playing well lately, and could use the wakeup call in Albany. Hopefully Loktionov can play well with his chance.

Would really hurt if in the end we've missed on our first round picks in Tedenby and Josefson

I must've missed the news that YaYo was sent down to Albany...NOW.

That's what the title sounds like, Chess.


Unless JJ was sent down just recently and I missed that news.....

Almost everyone. Carter, Clarkson twice, Tedenby, Elias twice, Kovy twice, Zubrus, Barch, Gionta, Butler, Poni, Bernier, Janssen.

Thing with Josefson is that the team is counting on him to take the next step this season and he really hasn't done anything at all. He can play pretty good defense but through 15 games thus far, he has been a disappointment overall. I won't judge him on the - 8 because I don't remember the circumstances in regards to that number, but it sure doesn't look good.

CBGB needs to be broken up. I like what that line brings (extremely hard-working line), and they have an obvious chemistry, but there are two major issues with them. One, they tend to get hemmed in their own zone far too often. Doesn't happen all the time, but way too much offensive pressure has been established against them by a few different teams. Second, I think Bernier can do more with some better players on his line. I have no issue with Gio and Carter, I actually appreciate their games a ton, but I think the team can get more from Bernier. He's very strong on the puck and has some pretty decent hands. CBGB is a great 4th line, but just a little weak as a 3rd imho. Break em up and see what other bottom 6 arrangements may work. With Zubrus being out for several weeks, NJ is going to need a lot more from the bottom lines.

The thread was a poll on whether he should be sent down, until about an hour ago when he actually was.

Jeeze this board is really on the ball this season! I'm proud of us.

We all like to disagree on Josefson's potential and ceiling, but I can't complain about this move. Loktionov gets a chance and Josefson gets a break.

Honestly, I think this is really telling. Devils play well when they fill a role. Josefson never got to settle into one.

i agree with you about bernier but i would not touch this line. they work well together in most games and have chemistry

I don't think he has anything to learn from the AHL, but obviously Lou knows better than me.

He may not have anything to learn, but there is no denying he's been playing poorly. Even if it just helps him get some confidence back, or sets him straight, it should be beneficial.

There's nothing to cheer about Josefson being sent down indeed.

Larsson was benched too, that worked out fine.

The league's littered with first-round dissapointments. Maybe half of first-rounders at best in a given year turn out to be NHL players for longer than the 'average career' length of one.

Anyone really think JJ will "regain confidence" in the AHL? I mean that strategy didn't work for Tedenby...

I just hope Loki plays as well as others suggest.

He might, he might not. Only one way to find out. Hopefully this will give him a kick in the ass and he'll improve his game enough to come back soon.
