or, you could go Parise-Zajac-Henrique and dominate puck possession every time on the ice

although i think it'll be Parise-Henrique and kovy-Zajac

Agreed. Me and Ned Stark were talking about this the other night and we agreed that Kovalchuk needs Zajac more than Parise needs Zajac.Parise needs him too. Thank God for Henrique.

Maybe if Josefson was back, but we don't have the center depth for Henrique to not play in the middle.

I think playing on the road has a lot to do with line matching. We haven't been matching well against other teams. It has a lot to do with depth of the roster, but DeBoer has to get better about not having our bottom lines out against other team's top lines.

McKay and Holik were 40pt guys consistently

Sestito and Boulton may combine for 40 career points by the time both retire and I love Zubrus, but he's barely a 40pt guy

I was mind blown when Pierre said that

Peluso at that point was a solid 20 point player as well.

Puck movement was a key part in us generating 5 goals yesterday. Taormina looked good and I would honestly prefer to see him as a regular on our bottom pairing over Volchenkov if paired with Salvador.

**** Volchenkov with his grenade handling and his big *** contract. He's supposed to be the key to our PK but our PK hasn't missed a beat without him.

you do realize our PP has given up a goal in each of the last 2 games he's been out right? lol

You do realise that teams will eventually start scoring on our PP. We weren't going to ride that wave threw 82 games. If all he's worth is top minutes on the PK, he has to be our worst contract out of our entire roster. We had White last year who gave us the same type of "production" and he was waived. Now, we have the same type of player that's earning 1.25M$ more then what White was making.

Prediction: He'll get moved before the end of his term... if Lou can actually find a taker for his services.

I just don't fathom how you can really want Salvador playing over Volchenkov

his contract isnt the greatest but its not like its hampering the team right now.

The conversation ends when you say you'd rather have Sal over Volchenkov. That's nuts. Volchenkov is much better than Sal. Sal's pretty much a #6 at this point.

You do realise that teams will eventually start scoring on our PP. We weren't going to ride that wave threw 82 games. If all he's worth is top minutes on the PK, he has to be our worst contract out of our entire roster. We had White last year who gave us the same type of "production" and he was waived. Now, we have the same type of player that's earning 1.25M$ more then what White was making.

Prediction: He'll get moved before the end of his term... if Lou can actually find a taker for his services.

welcome! i'd rather have volchenkov than salvador, no questions asked. volch is a monster and exactly the type of d-man we'll need during a nasty playoff series. sure, he shouldn't be a top pairing d-man, but he is exactly what this team was missing vs. the canes.

I just don't fathom how you can really want Salvador playing over Volchenkov

his contract isnt the greatest but its not like its hampering the team right now.

To me, both players are very similar. They suck in the offensive zone, they suck in the neutral zone and are both relied upon to play positional defense in their own zone. With Salvador, we could resign him next summer for half of what he's making atm but with A-Train, we are stuck with a 4.25M$ cap hit for the next 4 and a half years !!!

Like I've said before, when your highest paid d-men doesn't see more icetime then a 19 year old rookie, a guy that missed a entire season with a brain injury, a 24 year old sophmore, Tallinder and Greene... something's wrong, no?

The funny thing is that Salvador is getting more minutes then Volchenkov. So I guess the coaching staff doesn't see what the majority of this board (or the other board for that matter) sees in Volchenkov. Getting 17:07 minutes per game is what a #6 d-men should get, especially when 2 or 3 of those 17 minutes are played on the PK.

I never saw a "stud" blueliner get the least amount of icetime out of 6 man unit.

I'd take Volch over Salvador 100 times out of 100, even with their contracts. Volch is better at every aspect of the game and is a force on the PK. Like was previously stated his true value will be in the playoffs.

I astonished by Henrique. The kid has played 27 NHL games total and has 23 points and has gained the trust of the coaching staff and his linemates in no time. I don't anyone even in the devils organization expected anything like this.

Oh and for the first time in nearly a decade the devils have the potential to ice 2 real centers at the same time this season ...you can't help but get a little excited.

Imagine if Josefson is able to make it back before the playoffs?

I had a good feeling about Henrique. I didn't think he would light it up like this but he got it done at every level he played at, you had to think he would eventually adjust to the speed of the nhl.

I love Josefson. But these back to back injuries during this development time is terrible. I really hope he can overcome this because he has a Zajac-like poise and awareness that is not too common.

Dr. Doom
12-13-2011, 08:56
I don't think it will ruin his potential, it just takes a year off his development. With Henrique stepping up this allows Josefson to not be thrown into the top 6. Worst case scenario is Josefson ends up being a 3rd line center and his game is already developed enough for that. I'm also curious because Elias said that he would prefer to be playing center now, so what happens when we have Zajac-Henrique-Elias-Josefson as our centers? Do we switch one to wing or do we just role 4 quality lines?

Josefson reminds me of Elias. I hope he can become half the player that Patty is/was

And you don't think that has anything to do with our recent rash of injuries on the defense?

Sal is now playing in the top 4 because of the injuries, and I'm sure that the 50 seconds or whatever Volch played in the last game against Florida skewes those numbers as well.

Those #'s were identical when both of them were playing together on the same pairing. All I'm trying to say is that if Volchenkov can't surpass Bryce Salvador in icetime when both players are healthy, something's wrong.

why not? bryce was a solid *** d man back in the day and has been playing pretty damn good if you ask me. I mean yea you want volchenkov to obviously get more time than him but if salvys earning it im all for it. i don't think hes as big as a liability as you would think.
