<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Tintin</b></div><div>Holtz should be on this 23 man roster ahead of Tierney, probably somewhere on the 3rd line.
I think Holtz will be more than ready to contribute in the Devils top 9 for next season.</div></div>
Based on the reported exit interview feedback, it sounds like he will get his shot, for sure ... How he performs & how long of a leash they give him remains to be seen. Management has clearly mapped out their expectations for Holtz & the team, so it looks like he's reached a make or break moment in NJ .... based on interviews & actions, Fitzgerald is not in a waiting mood anymore. Holtz may turn out to be a good pro, but if he doesn't show this year, I suspect he goes to bring in another proven veteran to replace Toffoli next off-season.... Adding him to the line of solid young players like Zacha, Sharangovich who ran out of road in NJ. If they resign Toffoli, and Holtz shows at least some marginal improvement, maybe he sticks around, regardless.... Let's hope he just hits out of the gate, he certainly will be well protected with veterans like Palat & Haula as likely line mates. October is too far away
