Don't know why everyone's so "excited" about this.

Volch is not exactly much of an upgrade over Harrold even though he was playing a bit better prior to injury....

And Brunner sucks, period. Replacing him with Cam is simply like moving a piece of crap from one toilet bowl to another. It's still the same old crap.

Lovely.
To be honest, both are positive moves.

And not so much that Harrold is out, but that the young d-men are still in.

We lost 3 in a row with pretty much the same lineups

Cam plays 5 minutes a night, the guy in his place will get us 10 more minutes

Why wouldn't you be happy with this?

He should've scratched Loktionov tonight and sat him in NJ practicing shots on goal and setting up his teammates ****.

I'm please Josefson earned more significant minutes. Hope he passes Loktionov and Henriques overpaid ass on the depth chart. Tired of this ******** and I want some goals.

Oh and if Josefson doesn't produce goals on that line either he can **** himself too.

Volchenkov is an upgrade on Harrold if he can continue playing like he had pre-injury. Brunner is a definite upgrade over Cam no matter what. Cam plays 4 minutes, and the only thing he can really contribute to is hitting, which he better do a **** ton in those 4 minutes. Brunner actually has skill, and while he hasn't been playing good, he has the ability to play better. Cam is going to be consistently bad, he's not changing, but there's hope for Brunner.

I actually like our lines tonight, probably the best they've been in a while.

Are you serious?


I'm not happy WITH ANYTHING right now!!!!

I want Pete GONE from this team.

I'm sick and tired of his crappy decisions and being a clueless dimwit!!!


All of you can stay optimistic but until Pete is history, the Devils aren't going to really "move forward".

Those are two good moves and hopefully is a sign that Pete acknowledges weak spots in our lineup.

Surprised Fayne is in over Harrold. Fayne was just terrible last game, imho.

And Brunner is terrible too. I don't know what all the fuss was over this guy but he's played some really lousy hockey this last month and a half. I mean really bad. I honestly expect nothing out of him. As long as he isn't a minus, i'll take that as a win.

Either that(I doubt it) or perhaps....PERHAPS...Lou finally woke up, dragged Pete's sorry azz into his office and told him stories about Rivers and Cement shoes....

I think you need to take a deep breath and calm down



Now that we're all calm, I ask again, explain to me why after losing 3 straight and taking a guy out of the lineup who plays 5 minutes for a guy who will play 10 more minutes is a bad idea in addition to why a player who was playing well before he got injured, who is more physical and a better option than the guy he is replacing is also a bad idea

I'm actually more surprised Merrill is in for Harrold than Volch. Maybe he's being showcased for a trade

You know, I didn't even give Merrill being in a second thought. With Pete's track record, you're right. It's pretty surprising to see him still in the lineup.

Adding #28 to our lineup is never a good thing but with his ludicrous contract, there's not a chance in the world he'll see the pressbox over Harrold, Fayne or our rookies.

With that said, is Pete really going to utilise two left handers on the same pairing? If so, I'm shocked... COMPLETELY shocked.

Now that is the only stat line Lou will need when calling Harrold to his office, with the intention of telling him that his ass just got waived in order to make some room for the vets who are coming off the IR.

Brunner hasn't even been in New Jersey for half the season and he already sucks? Give it time - he may turn out to be a complete bust but I'm not ready to proclaim that yet especially given that he hasn't found chemistry with anyone on the team yet. This Henrique-Elias-Brunner line may be exactly what he needs to get going, we'll see.

Josefson? Produce goals? Yeah, don't hold your breath

Seriously though, Tedenby-Josefson-Ryder better do something. There's really no better situation for Josefson right now, he's playing with his best buddy on LW and a sniper on the right, he needs to score.

When you look like a pee-wee player in your own zone while giving zero effort to actually prevent the guy that's at arm reach of shooting towards our net... it's not about chemistry, it's about not being able to give a legit effort and that can't happen.

Brunner needs to learn one thing... Putting on the brakes and starting again is a common thing at the NHL level. Maybe not in Europe but in NA, it's something that should happen almost once every shift.

I would make this guy run "suicides" until he pukes on the ice. That might get the message threw and if it doesn't, I'd make him do it until he looks like Kate Moss.
