How does it work with S. Matteau next season, can he go back to BLB if so does it count on he's contract? Wouldent the best solution be to send him to Albany or is he to young for that. I do think he can learn alot more in Albany then going back to BLB.

He could go back to BLB next year.

I'm not certain on this, but I don't think he can play in the AHL next year. However, maybe if he starts the year in the AHL, that changes. Had he not played the beginning of the season in the Q, he could've made the jump from the USHL to the AHL (like Girgensons did). However, I'm not sure if his brief stint with Blainville this year matters next year.

I know for sure he can go back to BLB next year though.

Honestly the complaints the last few days have been unbearable. Tallinder is a cone, Zids is a cone, Volchenkov is a grenade handler, Deboer is clueless etc, etc... WE should get over the fact that besides 2 teams, it is ugly hockey time for everyone in the league right now.

And Tallinder has sucked big time, I think everyone agrees with this, there's no need to derail every thread with this.


My 2 cents, I'll shut my mouth now.

Needs some:

Urbom, Loktionov, and maybe Boucher. I'd also put Greene in there as well...

Greene-Fayne
Severson-Larsson
Gelinas-?????

Volch should be on the bench with Tallinder.

$7 million in Dmen who are past it.

Without Carter and Zubrus, we have very little forecheck.

How often do you see a D built entirely from within the organization? I'd wager never.

Yes, but with so many D prospects, it's very likely it will be that way.

Zajac has been useless offensively. The biggest disappointment of the season in my mind. And like I've said from the beginning, we have 3 quality defensemen(Fayne,Greene,Larsson) and then guys who get paid like quality dmen but suck. We're in a bit if a pickle if we can't dump some of these turds. Our kids in the minors are better probably. Speed is so much more important in today's game an our old guys don't have it.

I'm in the minority but I want Tallinder in the lineup.

Might as well sit Zidlicky, he is a liability on defense and he seems to only present his puck moving skills while on the PP. Tallinder isn't as mobile but he can make a good first pass and he has been playing with urgency and drive since being scratched.

On a side note pairings that should never happen -- Salvador-Volchenkov, Zidlicky-Volchenkov

IMO we are still slumping and we need Henrique, Clarkson, and Zajac to spark or else we will continue down this path unless we make a trade for fresh legs.

Just my .02

This. They've seemed to enter a lull it hurts... Henrique can be freakin amazing, well they all can. Hope they spark again. Zajac is having a terrible time.

Why it isn't worth panicking. Frustrated and annoyed yes but it's not like they are all overachievers reverting to true form that would be a good time to panic. It's good players all having a bad time of it.

Any word on Carter?

Offense is non existent, which goes hand-in-hand with the nonexistent forecheck, the PP doesn't look good, and the PK has been really bad.

Those are all things the Devils have to fix as a team. I don't care how they do it, but they need to adjust and realize it's not working.

I'm not one to put the blame on any singular player. Zajac, Clarkson, and whoever else maybe hasn't played that well lately, but the entire Devils team hasn't played well either. If we really want to start blasting players, then we might as well criticize everyone except for Elias, Kovalchuk, Loktionov, Butler, Greene, and Larsson, the only players that have shown up of late. Kovalchuk tried way too hard today and was a turnover machine and Elias continually goes for the pretty play when it's not there.

I know, it just breeds inner pannic and such naturally to some and me here. They're good players just having a bad time right now. They'll get it together soon, sooner than later I hope

Travis does not look fit physically. Seems to be playing through an injury.

Instant Insight

Wow, not a good day.

A lot of things became apparent.

1. They miss he-who-shall-not-be-named on specials
2. The forecheck is hindered without Zubs and Carts out there
3. Zajac has been trying out his ghost costume for Halloween for too long now.
4. Volchenkov looks like he has lead feet. Perhaps Harrold in for him?
5. Seems like they really need to bring in a defenseman or two via trade, but do they even have the pieces to make it happen?

Also, check out our Instant Insight on today's awful performance
