Roster Spots - Thoughts From Camp

Written by Darren S. on .

 

Training camp officially opened yesterday but due to the lockout, this isn’t your normal training camp. Decisions have to be made quickly on players trying to make the team and all the other roster moves that need to be made.

The Devils open the season Saturday night in Long Island so you can see that there isn’t a lot of time for decisions to be made.

Here is the full training camp roster:
 

Goaltenders
1-Johan Hedberg
30-Martin Brodeur

Defensemen
2-Marek Zidlicky
5-Adam Larsson
6-Andy Greene
7-Henrik Tallinder
10-Peter Harrold
24-Bryce Salvador
28-Anton Volchenkov
29-Mark Fayne

Forwards
8-Dainius Zubrus
9-Bobby Butler
11-Stephen Gionta
12-Tim Sestito
14-Adam Henrique (injured)
15-Harri Pesonen
16-Jacob Josefson
17-Ilya Kovalchuk
18-Steve Bernier
19-Travis Zajac
20-Ryan Carter
21-Mattias Tedenby
22-Krys Barch
23-David Clarkson
25-Cam Janssen
26-Patrik Elias
32-Mathieu Darche*
34-Stefan Matteau
*Unsigned

So what do we make of this roster? Who will we see in Long Island on Saturday night? I’m very interested to see how the guys that didn’t go to Albany or Europe to play. Are they in shape? Here are some thoughts:
 

The Gionta/Carter/Bernier line was so effective last spring that I believe without a doubt they should be given the chance to return this season. Will they be as effective, I don’t know but all three should certainly be on the Devils final roster.

Bobby Butler has emerged as Albany's leading scorer with 15 goals and 8 assists in 32 games. He also has led them in shots with 92. I can’t for any reason figure out why we would send him back to Albany. Let’s hope he makes it and keeps the #9 he is wearing in camp.

A lot of people are hot about Mattias Tedenby but I for one am not. He has talent but he’s been given a shot before and managed to play his way to an AHL ticket. That’s not to say guys don’t deserve multiple chances, they do. We know maturity helps in all sports, I’m just saying I’m not hot on this guy like many are.

I’ll take a pass on Tim Sestito. He’s never really done much for me and he hasn’t been lighting the AHL world on fire this season either.

I believe that  Stefan Matteau is there only so we can get a better look at him. I don’t think he will make the team this season. He needs work, especially when it comes to discipline but he’s a kid, he’ll grow.

Mathieu Darche played for Montreal last season but the free agent has not been signed by anyone. He's in camp on a tryout basis and a lot has already been made about his presence because he appears to have taken Sykora’s place in camp. Lou's decision were made to bring in youth rather than Sykora but they brought Darche in, who is the same age and scores a lot less. I still think the move is smart. You have to respect that the Devils are looking toward their youth and the one thing Darche has over Sykora is size. He’s 6’1” and 217lbs and let’s be honest, Sykora isn’t really much of a tough guy. In a limited role, Darche could be useful.

Coming tomorrow, we will take a look at the Devils first 6 games of the season which will bring us to the beginning of February.

Who Should Wear The "C"

Written by Darren S. on .

The framework to end the lockout is in place and while we wait for the ratification process for the new CBA to be completed, it is now time to start focusing on a little Devils hockey.

I will address a rumor first because I need to address it in order to move on with the point of this article. We woke up this morning to rumors that Ilya Kovalchuk might be staying put in the KHL and not returning to the Devils this season. Sorry, I’m not buying it. The guy has more than a decade left with NJ and lots a lot of money to leave on the table. He’s going to become the main focus of the Devils offense now that Parise is gone and I just can’t believe he’d leave that. When the Devils open their 2013 season, you better believe that #17 will be there.

With the departure of our Captain last July 4th, that leaves a vacancy on our team for a new captain. Who should wear the “C” from this point on? Here are a few thoughts:

Ilya Kovalchuk – Seems to make the most season. He’s locked up long term and I for one want to give the “C” to a guy who is going to be around for a while. No one likes watching their Captain walk away from the team. We’ve watched it happen twice now and I don’t want to see it happen again. He’s changed his game and bought into the Devils philosophy since joining the team, so I ask you to come up with a reason not to give it to him.

Kovalchuk is my choice but let’s look at some other guys that might hear their names in this conversation.

Patrik Elias – No doubt that Elias has been a leader for us on the ice. He’s even worn the “C” for the Devils before but I always got the feeling that he wasn’t exactly comfortable with that on his uniform. I don’t really think he’d jump at the chance to wear it again and I believe the DeBoer probably can see that.

Bryce Salvador – I prefer to have my captain be a defenseman but when you look at the Devils defense, no one really stands out above the rest. It’s a very good group of guys that get the job done but there isn’t a Stevens or Niedermayer among them. If you had to pick a defenseman, Salvador is the veteran but I don’t see him or any other defenseman wearing the C.

Travis Zajac – You could make an argument for this guy. The team seems to be lost when he is out of the lineup. He missed most of last season and the Devils were noticeably improved when he returned to the lineup and was very helpful in their run to the Cup Finals, BUT and it’s a but that would get the likes of Sir Mix-a-lot all riled up, Zajac is a UFA in 7 months and do the Devils really want to go through this again?

So that’s my short list and it really is a VERY short list because I think Kovalchuk is really the only guy that should get the “C” on his jersey. Who do you think should be the next captain of the Devils? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comment section!

Devils Players - News & Notes - Monday October 8th

Written by Darren S. on .

Over the course of the lockout, we will be bringing you various news on anything New Jersey Devils throughout the world. Whether its some AHL talk or KHL talk that concerns anyone from the Devils organization, you can find it all right here. Hopefully we will be talking NJ Devils hockey on a daily basis very soon!!

New from the weekend...

Ilya Kovalchuk - W - Devils

Ilya Kovalchuk tallied a hat trick to give SKA St. Petersburg a 4-2 triumph against CSKA Moscow.

St. Louis Blues prospect Vladimir Tarasenko contributed three assists in the game, while CSKA's Pavel Datsyuk had two points (goal and assist) for the losing squad. Kovalchuk had posted one goal in his previous five KHL contests.

Scott Parse - W - Devils

Scott Parse is looking to rebound from a pair of tough seasons, where he had surgery on both hips and he appeared in a combined 14 games with Los Angeles.

He skated in 59 contests with the Kings in 2009-10 in which he contributed 11 goals and 13 assists. Parse didn't get his name on the Stanley Cup because he didn't dress in any of the team's playoff matches. He signed with the Albany Devils this past off-season so that he could play during the NHL lockout, but he expects to get a two-way deal with the big club once it is over. Parse said he is healthy now and he will look to get back on track in the minors first.

Raman Hrabarenka - D - Devils

Raman Hrabarenka inked an AHL deal with the Albany Devils on Sunday.

According to the QMJHL's website, Hrabarenka agreed to terms with New Jersey's minor-league affiliate after attending training camp with the club on a tryout. He tied fellow defenseman Brandon Burlon for the team scoring lead with four points (one goal, three assists) in three preseason contests. He played two seasons in the QMJHL and had 20 points, with 55 penalty minutes, in 57 games between Cape Breton and Drummondville last year.

Harri Pesonen - Devils

Devils’ left winger Harri Pesonen has opened eyes in training camp and in the early part of the exhibition action for Albany in the AHL.

Pesonen is a late-blooming prospect that New Jersey decided to take a flyer on this summer. The 23-year-old put up 21 goals and 35 points in 60 games with JYP of the Finnish SM-Liga last season.

Travis Zajac - C - Devils

Travis Zajac is not planning on playing in Europe in the very near future.

The underrated Devil pivot returned to his home in Winnipeg this week to work out with a number of Jets' players and others. Zajac believes a deal can be struck to end the lockout in weeks as opposed to months and that going to play in Europe is an option only for a prolonged work stoppage. "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't (thinking about playing in Europe)," Zajac said. "But I'm still hanging around; I have some optimism about things starting eventually here and hopefully in the next couple of weeks or a month things can get done." We hope his optimism isn't misplaced.

Reece Scarlett - D - Devils

Reece Scarlett, New Jersey's sixth round draft pick last year, scored a goal and three assists in Swift Current's 10-1 win over Saskatoon Friday night in WHL action.

Scarlett is on pace to top his 2011-12 point output where he put up 49 points in 71 games.

Written by Darren S. on .

Say what you want about ESPN and I understand they might not be the best source for sports BUT every year they do this Ultimate Standings feature.

The eight major categories that make up the Ultimate Standings were created based on feedback from fans about what they want most from their favorite teams

Bang For The Buck (BNG): Wins during the past three years (regular season plus postseason) per revenues directly from fans, adjusted for league schedules. 

Fan Relations (FRL): Openness and consideration toward fans by players, coaches and management. 

Ownership (OWN): Honesty and loyalty to core players and local community. 

Affordability (AFF): Price of tickets, parking and concessions. 

Stadium Experience (STX): Quality of arena and game-day promotions as well as friendliness of environment. 

Players (PLA): Effort on the field and likability off it. 

Coaching (CCH): Strength of on-field leadership. 

Title Track (TTR): Championships already won or expected in the lifetime of current fans.

Yea that’s right, the Devils are tops among all the teams in the NJ/NY area. That means we ranked higher than the Super Champion Giants, they Yankees and The Rangers. Oh and also those other teams that call NY home….

Just Being Brutally Honest

Written by Darren S. on .

This post is being written from a Devils fan point of view because that is what I am but I want to make it known that some the content in this post affects all hockey fans.

The emotional roller coaster ride that Devils fans have been on over the last 4 months has been pretty exhausting.  Last Spring was an amazing run towards what could have been our 4th Stanley Cup but unfortunately the Devils came up 2 games short. I still say the 2001 loss was a lot more devastating than the 2012 loss but that’s really not the point. We as Devils fans were riding high on this team going into the offseason but then things started to happen.

First, Adam Oates left the Devils for the head coaching position in Washington. Then Larry Robinson decided to take a “not an everyday kind of coach” coaching job with San Jose to be closer to his family. Also playing the family card, Zach Parise signed a ridiculous contract with a ridiculous organization so he could be near his. Days before Parise left town, Marty Broduer dropped the bombshell that he was going to test the free-agency waters but ultimately resigned with the Devils. While he didn’t leave, the small window of the possibility of #30 not being in NJ was stressful. Rumors then began swirling about who the Devils would sign in order to replace Parise. The answer: NO ONE! On top of ALL THAT, there was the constant talk about the Devils financial problems leaving us fans wondering if the Devils would even exist in a few short years.

Guess what, the shit storm doesn’t stop there.

It’s September 6th and with the CBA expiring in just a little over a week, we now get to really stress about a lockout (not like we haven’t been stressing about it for the last month or so).

This will be the third lockout that most of us have lived through and I’ve often wondered if it will be too much for some to deal with. The NHL rebounded for the cancellation of the 2005 season but I know a number of fans that didn’t really come back after that. On the surface, its people how make more money than I could ever dream fighting with people who make even more money than I could ever dream. Lost in that fight are the people who work in and around that sport, that need a paycheck to survive, that have a lot to lose should a lockout happen.

And then there are the fans.

Three lockouts in a relatively short amount of time scream to me that we don’t really matter. Yes, they need our money but we’ve done this song and dance before and you’ve always come back, so obviously you will come back again. Are they right? Probably but seriously it’s annoying as shit. The owners, the players, the world revolves around money and you can never have enough but seriously, can’t the owners give a little, take a little? I should be posting about the start of training camp, not about what a bunch of assholes the NHL and NHLPA are and how I feel they treat the fans.

Bottom line is that I know whenever this dispute ends, I’ll be right back in front of the TV cheering on the Devils but it’s frustrating as hell to know I have to wait because of greedy people.

Marty, Moose Re-sign as "Parise Watch" Continues

Written by Scott Robb on .

Day two of the free agency frenzy is wrapping up and it is time to take a look at what the New Jersey Devils have accomplished so far. With the departure of Eric Boulton and Alexei Ponikarovsky, the 2012-2013 Devils will have some new faces. With those new faces, however, will be some familiar ones.

Both Martin Brodeur and Johan Hedberg have re-signed with New Jersey. It is interesting to note that Brodeur's salary will decrease in the next two years, while Hedberg's will rise. Brodeur's contract is worth $9 million over two years, while Hedberg will receive $2.8 million in the same time span. The re-signings guarantee that Marty will remain a Devil until he is at least 42 years of age and Hedberg until he is 41.

Johan Hedberg talked about the Devils sticking with a pair of older goaltenders, rather than going with a younger tandem.

"Everybody has to go to someone younger sooner or later," he said, "but I'm not surprised because I know Lou doesn't really care too much about your age. It's more about if you can do the job. If you're in shape, he doesn't really care if you're 40, 60 or 20. I'm very happy he believes in that."

Brodeur joked that David Clarkson was "more worried" about him being an UFA than Marty himself was.

My Thoughts: I'm extremely happy with the decision to bring Marty and Moose back. In order for the Devils to repeat their recent success, it is essential to keep all of the pieces of the puzzle together for quite some time. Brodeur and Hedberg bring great qualities to the Devils' locker room and ensure another two years of smart, fundamental net-minding.

In other news, "Parise Watch 2012" as some are calling it will last for at least one more day. Devils' captain Zach Parise has yet to make up his mind as to where he will spend next season--and possibly the rest of his career.

At around 5 PM on July 2, Parise held a press conference on TSN. "Parise" trended worldwide on twitter; however, Zach let seemingly everyone down when he announced that he has not made a decision yet. Parise will fly back home to his home-state of Minnesota to discuss things over with his family. When asked about a time frame for his decision, Parise indicated that it would be some time "in the near future." The thirty-goal scorer also indicated that the Devils were still in the mix of teams that he had in mind.

Rumors have circulated that Parise will choose between Pittsburgh, New Jersey, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, and even Carolina. At this point, though, nothing is believable until it comes directly from Zach. The Devils have made a very "competitive" offer (10 years, $90 million) according to sources in addition to the $12 million signing bonus that Parise reportedly wants.

My Thoughts: WE NEED PARISE. Again, if the Devils want to repeat their recent success, they will need ALL of the pieces of the puzzle. The centerpiece is our captain, Zach Parise. Hopefully, Parise cares more about his teammates and winning than he does money. Only time will tell as we enter day three of Parise Watch 2012.

Marty & Zach Testing Waters? Carter and Bernier Signed

Written by Darren S. on .

We are days away from the start of the Free Agency Frenzy so I would expect that the word of the day would be “speculation.” There is A LOT of it going on this morning but being that these rumors came from reputable sources, maybe there is some substance to them.

  • Brodeur has hired agent Pat Brisson, who represents Sidney Crosby, among others, to represent him. Keep in mind, Marty hasn’t had an agent in many, MANY years (I want to say 96 but can’t confirm that!!) Brisson has told Darren Dreger of TSN that if Brodeur isn't re-signed by Sunday he will test free agency and listen to offers.

OK..WOW, that’s a big deal. I really see Brisson being a tool used to squeeze as much money out of NJ as he could, nothing more than that but I guess you also have to entertain the idea that Marty might not be in NJ come the start of next season. The only really thing to take away from this that there is no positive from a Devils perspective of him hiring an agent.

  • Zach Parise still looks to be headed to UFA market on Sunday.

He’s been rumored to just about every team over the last week or so and it remains a wait and see kind of situation. No way do I believe Zach signs a deal before Sunday, that he has every intention of testing the market. I would hope, that in both Marty’s and Zach’s case, they both give Lamoriello the option to match whatever they're offered but we could see some silly numbers.

  • Devils have re-signed Ryan Carter and Steve Bernier. Expect an announcement from the team in the next day or two.

There is also a rumor that Stephen Gionta will probably be back as well so that 4th line that was so important in the playoffs should be back. Of course, no Parise and no Marty might make that irrelevant anyway.

Reflecting on the 2012 Playoff Run

Written by Darren S. on .

We’ve had a few days now to sit back and process how the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs ended for our New Jersey Devils. That’s not to say the past few days have been easy because they haven’t been. Yesterday would have been Game 7 had the Devils found a way to win on Monday night and yesterday also happened to be Peter DeBoer’s birthday. So, knowing now that we could have had the opportunity to deliver a cup to DeBoer on his birthday was a little hard to swallow yesterday. None the less, we shouldn’t let the fact the NJ came up a little short in their run for the cup take away from all the achievements we saw them make this Spring. Afterall, the team went from missing the playoffs to ending up 2 games short of a cup. Nothing to be ashamed of there.

Eastern Conference Quarter-Finals

If you had told DeBoer  last summer when he took the Devils job that the first team he would face in the playoffs would be the team he just left, I don’t know if he would have believed you. The Devils entered this series as the NHL’s hottest team having won the final 6 games in the regular season. The Panthers were struggling to get wins entering the playoffs but deserved respect because of the veterans there with massive playoff experience. As Devils fans, the one thing I think we can take away from that series is that having the number 1 penalty kill during the regular season means absolutely nothing when it comes to the playoffs. It failed us over and over and we were lucky to survive. Panther’s defenseman Jason Garrison had a canon of a shot and was deadly on the power play but he ended up missing a few games which ended up being a huge advantage for us. Marty didn’t have a strong opening to this series but once we blew a 3 goal first period lead and lost 4-3 at home in Game 3 and then lost 3-0 in Game 5, a different Marty showed up. He’s the main reason Henrique had the chance to bury the Panthers in double OT in Game 7. It was a great win and a great confidence builder as the Devils finally got out of the first round.

 

 

Eastern Conference Semi-Finals

The last time we made the playoffs was the 2009/2010 season when we ran head on into the Philadelphia Flyers, the eventual Eastern Conference Champion. In that year, they out played us, out muscled us and sent us home in 5 games. It was a horrible way to end Kovalchuk’s first playoff run with us. Many at the time questioned if the failures in the playoffs would keep us from resigning Kovalchuk, which of course it didn’t. This time, we were running into a Flyers team that just knocked out the team that 99% of the hockey universe predicted to win the cup. The Flyers were a physical team that made Pittsburgh lose their composure time and time again. After an OT loss in Game 1, the Devils found their game, found their patience and sent the Flyers the Flyers home in 5. There were a few reasons that the Devils were able to move on in this series but the main reason was the ability to frustrate the Flyers by not engaging in all the after the whistle nonsense that the Flyers like to try and pull you into. Many will talk about the Claude Giroux hit/suspension that kept the NHL’s leading scorer out of an elimination game. The thing to remember about this series is that DeBoer had all the right answers. The final goal of the series would come on a bizarre mistake made by goaltender Ilya Bryzaglov.

 

Eastern Conference Finals

1994 was front and center when the New Jersey Devils faced off against the New York Rangers. It was the last time we faced the Rangers in such an important series, the last time the Rangers had a successful season and there was no way New York was going to let us forget 1994. Afterall, it’s really all they have!!  It was a tough series, a complete battle every night. The Rangers won Game 1 because of their ability to block shots and after the game DeBoer was asked about that. He responded by saying that shot blocking can’t be the story of the series and the Devils did an excellent job solving that puzzle and finding a way to get pucks to the net. The Devils won 2 of 3 games in the Madison Square Garden and finished off the Rangers in 6 at home in OT. Once again, Adam Henrique would step up in OT and put home the winning goal. Doc Emerick’s call on Henrique’s goal will go down as legendary. As Henrique put the puck in the net, Doc exclaimed “IT’S OVER!!!” which some can take as him meaning the series was over but I think most Devils fans took it to mean that the constant reminder of the Stephan Matteau goal, the constant reminder of the “Guarantee” was over. Those demons are buried forever and should a Rangers fan bring that up at this point, we will be able to just move on.  The Devils won this series behind a very strong Marty Brodeur who stole Game 5 in Madison Square Garden in order to give NJ the chance.

 

Stanley Cup Finals

No one expected NJ to get this far in the playoffs, other than the organization itself of course. No one really expected LA to get here either but they steam rolled the top 3 teams in the West to get here. It became clear early on in Game 1 that these two teams were very even and that this series was going to come down to the men between the pipes. The Kings won Game 1 in OT on a Kopitar goal and then Game 2 in OT on a Jeff Carter goal. They would continue their winning ways in Game 3 that put NJ in a 3-0 hole. Give NJ credit, the scratched and clawed their way back to 3-2 before losing in LA in Game 6. Lots has been made about Bernier’s hit in Game 6 that led to a 5 minute major and 3 PP goals by the Kings as the point in which NJ lost the series. I’ll argue while that was bad, losing both games at home to start was the bigger issue. Other issues that led to the Devils coming up short was the inability to solve Jonathon Quick, another horrible showing by the PK unit and an ailing Ilya Kovalchuk didn’t provide one once of offense.

Like I’ve said, I am bummed about not winning the cup but this team did so much along the way that I am still proud to call myself a Devils fan. Then there was this little gem that happened during the final interviews with the Devils as they cleaned out their locker. We don’t know what the future holds for Zach Parise and the Devils but he gave us one last awesome little clip before he heads into free agency..

Thank you Zach, this is just another example of why we love you!!!
