I still don't see room for Zidlicky without a right shot moving.

It had to be Tallinder, no GM in his right mind would take on Volchenkov at 4.25M for the next 3 years when he is slowing down when the game is speeding up. And of course Salvador is the captain, and trading Fayne would barely be a cap dump and stupid because he is one of the few guys on the right side of 30 with Larsson.

Too bad the Devils had to lose Tallinder, he's very good but it's a numbers game, I don't think Lou is done yet.

Lamoriello said this does not impact Marek Zidlicky "at this point." The GM said he'd still like to re-sign Zidlicky.

Like that it means giving someone an opportunity, but Tallinder was (and still is) an excellent defenseman.

 

 

 

Easy there tiger.  Tallinder is a competent to good NHL defenseman.  Duncan Keith and Ryan McDonough are "excellent defenseman".  Semantics aside, we're basically in agreement. 

 

As people will notice with a lot of bad teams, and actually a lot of pretty good teams, a steady second pairing, or even third pairing defenseman, is not that easy to come by.  The Rangers made it to the second round of the playoffs, and could have used at least another one of those.

I like the move since we saved around $3 million in cash. Now if we could only send Volchie back to Ottawa Lou would deserve his own parade.

Volchenkov could be moved for the right forward next summer with all the terrible contracts being signed. I would love to make a Volchenkov Peverly trade.

per TG 

 

Lamoriello said trade was made to clear a roster spot for a young D next season, but also said it's still possible they'll re-sign Zidlicky.

And who knows, he might actually show some improvement this year.

It had to be done. We have too many up and coming young D now.

Would you guys want Gelinas or Urbom to take his place?

I think he would have to move Volchenkov or Salvador before he resigns Zid.

I know Anton has a NTC. Not sure if Sal does. I also think the devils think Sal is good.

interesting that Lou named Severson in the mix of the youngsters who might get a shot. Urbom, Merril, Gelinas, Severson. 

 

those are 4 prospects that we can at least be excited about. Not saying we have to overate them and pump their tires but the potential is there.

Dream come true would be for Lou to bring back Zid and dump one of Sal or Volchenkov to make room for Merrill

Wow this is almost as big of a robbery for Buffalo as the Schneider trade was for the Devils.

 

Really surprised that they could not even get a pick for him. This sucks. I really like Tallinder and thought he was good for this team. He was so good in 2010-2011 during the hot streak.

A bit OT, but if anyone wants to buy authentic game issued Tallinder red/Green jersey, PM me.

Ok, I really don't know what the fvck people wanted Lou to do, no one is taking Salvador or Volchenkov with the years and money they have left, its a fvcking pipe dream. I swear, people will bitch and moan about anything. This was EXPECTED, and not at all surprising. Best of luck in Buffalo Hank.

they could've gotten a pick and this waste of a reserve list spot, if tallinder had that kind of value, but apparently he didn't.

Lou's done well this off season, the only thing left I'd like him to do is buy out Volch (since nobody wants him)
