The Devils absolutely do not care about upsetting vets if they are underperforming... see: Brian Rolston.

If the organisation is more concerned about upsetting a veteran who can't earn his spot on the roster in favour of icing a better team... then this organisation has taken a path in a entire different direction.

These are good problems to have.

I'm excited about the upcoming season.

I see gaping holes in each Metro division team. Surprisingly, I'm probably most worried about CBJ being annoying to play (like FLA in the 2012 season).

I would honestly take a swift kick in the balls, maybe two at the limit, if it ment no more #28 on our roster.

If Salvador and Volchenkov both disappeared, I would do two back flips and walk on my hands. Only if both disappeared though, as I already expect 28 to be bought out next June.

Why don't you arrange for it, and then see if it works?

two separate backflips or a double backflip? this is important

I only had two separate ones in mind, but it would probably give me an adrenaline rush or some kind of extra boost. I supposed I could pull of a double backflip out of it!

Gelinas should have the open spot (if there is one), and Urbom should be the first call up. Severson is good, but I think he needs a little more time in juniors.

Do the Devils have any chance to unload Volchenkador?

I'm fine with Sal. And if it were only Volch that would not be the worst thing either. It's that both are here that is my issue.

So if Volch is the buyout post season, I can deal.

In the meantime I'd like to see a consistent rotation, where as if Gelinas is the 7th, he's playing every 3rd game, spelling Volch, Sal, Zid's.

Hey I'm with you guys, waiving him sounds like smart move.

Any way you slice it, we have to sneak somebody through waivers. Lou will certainly have a tough job on his hands.

He'll probably just make a transaction with Larsson being sent to Albany just on paper, since he's waiver exempt. Then he'll be put back on the main roster the next day, and one or two of the other guys will be waived.

Lou did something like that last year too, didn't he? With Tedenby I think?

Yup that's how he got Butler through.

Hmm... It just dawned on me that the Devs knew the Denis Brodeur situation was probably going to happen, and that's why we kept Kinkaid up.

Nah.

If Marty played tonight, Kinkaid would still have backed him up.

No need to have Schneider dress as a backup for a preseason game when he can just relax in a suit in the owner's box.

I think the Barch trade really helped clear things up, but I'm wondering what other moves Lou will make before the season. Specifically, what is he going to do with the D?

Unless there is a trade, I think Urbom hits waivers today, really didn't want to see that but he's the only D with a 2 way contract and Lou said he doesn't want an NHL salary in the AHL. Kind of confuses me though as when they traded Tallinder they said it was to open a roster spot for a young D...and they're not going to end up keeping any of their young D.

Maybe there'll be a trade or Lou goes against everything he's ever done in the past and puts Harrold on waivers. Other than that Janssen will be out on and I'm guessing some players get hid on IR or Gionta is on waivers

Lets remember other teams are in the situation with getting their roster down.

They may assign Larsson to Albany until they know if Elias will need to go on IR or not. Waiver exempt and buys them a few days to see. He would be back for opening night. No use possibly losing a guy you would need to call right back up as an injury replacement.

I don't think Salvador or Volchenkov are tradeable, so Lou will eventually have to sneak Urbom through waivers. The only question is whether he will do it now while everyone else is doing the same, or delay it to see if someone will go on IR.
