Should Alex Holtz get a long leash to start the year? “Holtz played in 19 games with the New Jersey Devils this past season, but he only totalled three goals and an assist while averaging 10:16 in ice time. Part of it falls on the player obviously, but for him to have a chance to break out in the NHL, head coach Lindy Ruff will have to give him leeway with some of the Devils’ top players. Otherwise, it’ll be much of the same.” [Infernal Access ($)]
