Johan Hedberg is starting in goal, the Devils don't have anything to play for, so why not give a guy like defenseman Eric Gelinas a shot Thursday when Pittsburgh comes calling? Alexander Urbom made his season debut on Tuesday night against Montreal and did OK.
If Gelinas -- who the Devils are awfully high on -- wants to see what the NHL is really like, why not play him against an injury-riddled Penguins team with nothing to play for.
Now, if that Crosby guy returns, I might alter that opinion. But, give the kid-- who will likely get the chance to make the team in camp next year-- a shot. What's the worst that can happen?
