PoniKoravski traded back to Devils. Zubrus to miss 2-8 Weeks

209 posts in this topic

I'm more than fine with giving up two low draft picks to get Ponikarovsky back - especially if Zubrus will be out awhile. The Devils only have 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 6th round picks in the 2013 NHL Draft now though.

Very happy to have him back, he was an incredible puzzle piece last year. Our depth is off the charts imo...

We wouldn't have had to give anything away had we just re-signed him to start with. This all just puzzles me.

They don't have the 1st either due to Kovalgate

Again, we don't know if we even had a chance to. He very easily could've just walked.

@TGfireandice

Lamoriello said they wanted to re-sign Ponikarovsky last summer, but were waiting on another player, and Poni signed with WPG.

They still don't have to give it up yet. Either this year or next year so they still own it for now.

 

Well I was expecting worse news on Zubrus. Assuming he is out for 2 months he should still be good to go by playoff time.

I never understood why he signed so quickly in Winnipeg for so little anyway.

 

Personally, I think he felt get paid before other role players signed and set the market.

 

He couldn't wait for us with Homesick Baby so did what was best for him.

Everyone jump on the Poni's back, he's carrying us back to the Finals!

 

No but seriously, I loved Poni on the team last year, glad he's back. I know we're running low on draft picks now, but at least it's the low ones we're giving away.

I am glad Poni is back, some of his talents were in need. Sucks to lose Zubrus though, hope for best case scenario.
