Find A Home For A Defenseman

Cap space wise Ottawa and Edmonton make the most sense to find a deal with.  Could do something like Tallinder, Josefson, Teddenby for Hemsky and Paajarvi.  Buffalo has a lot of space too, should they want to reunite with Tallinder.  That Salvador contract is the one that hurts the most and make the least sense.  Lou created the problem at D with that contract.

I see a deal closer to what Minnesota got for Settiguci for Tallinder.

They picked one up in Andrej Sekera.

All the more reason for Buff to want Tallinder or Volch

I would do Tallinder to Buf for a 2nd.  It's likely to be a high 2nd in the beasty east.

Tallinder did not play poorly last year.  Dumping him would kill me, he is still a really effective defenseman and the Devils will get nothing for him because the league is too dumb to see that.

 

I thought his play was very inconsistent, especially when trying to play after being benched for awhile. Like I said, he was treated as expendable on this team last season and the Devils made it overt to me that they are willing to part with him.

 

I think Tallinder can still be an effective d-man, I did not say otherwise. I certainly cannot see Volch moving anywhere, Fayne is a possibility but I don't see the positive side of it, while he remains under contract he is cheap and can be benched if needed.

Salvador isn't going anywhere. I have the sense that Tallinder is gone. Larsson is ready to take the next step with his minutes. I think Volchenkov provides too much toughness to drop.
