Two preview shows in and we’ve already reached what is most likely the most polarizing pair of players we’ll discuss this September. Damon Severson has shown to be an analytics monster, but his play in his own zone has limited Coach Hynes’ trust in him, especially as he was sat down the stretch. Can he take a big step forward towards being a bona-fide top-4?
Pavel Zacha will always be looked at as the player the Devils took 6th overall with some other more successful names on the board. Pavel showed signs of improvement last season, especially in the defensive end, but he’ll be counted on to put up more points if he’s to stay as the club’s number two center.
We’ll discuss both of these enigmatic players during the episode.
