Bryce Salvador to NJ for Cam Janssen

181 posts in this topic

GREAT MOVE LOU. I would have loved Jackman, but Salvador is a very, very strong defensemen.

I will miss Cam, but I did not see him getting any icetime.

Great move.

This give Lou room to deal for a Center.

they're not done.

plus salvador makes this defense tougher which is a necessity. brookbank's nice but he's too slow to hit anyone.

i've never liked bryce salvador, so whatever. he's in that vein of overrated st. louis defensemen who played with pronger or macinnis and had nice looking stats as a result.

TSN is kinda putting off the idea that this was Sutter's idea (as Sutter knows Salvador), and they're saying he'll probably be put in a pairing with White.

I'm gonna miss Cam but I'm happy for him as well. He's a good guy and deserves a chance to play and it seemed he really liked being a Devil. Now he will be able to be close to his family again. best of luck to him.

This isn't a huge pick up but it's a decent move for the Devils and it only confirms that there is more to come.

Cam on the phone TSN. He seems very happy to be going back to STL. Joked that it was a blockbuster trade to his parents. He's happy to go home and get a chacne to play, so he's pumped. Lou walked to talk to Cam in practice and let him know himself. He said the staff had gloomy looks on his face when Jannsen was walking to Lou's office. He had nothing but good things to say about Lou. He wants to play hockey, so he doesn't mind going to a team that maybe isn't contending for the Cup. Already referred to the Blues as "we have a....". He's excited.

He joked that he's going to score 20 now in STL. Says STL is crazy for thinking he can catch a 12:45 out of Laguardia. Very lighthearted about the whole thing. Going to be a busy day for the Cammer.

So long Cammmer, good luck sir.

the Devils now move Brookbank and Tallackson for Havlat and Seabrook.

Edit: Just a joke in case it wasn't over the top enough

With Rupp taking on heavyweights like Ivanans this season, and Clarkson taking care of any middleweights - Janssen was extraneous. But he was also awesome. Oh well.

I can't see two defenders being moved so maybe Rachunek just gets dropped somewhere unpleasant? I guess we'll see how everything unfolds.

I think this is a good deal guys. Janssen did nothing for the Devils and I think Salvador will be good on defense for the Devils. Most likely on the line with White. Lou saw something in Salvador and I think Lou may not be done just yet. Sorry to see Janssen go but he was useless.

Apparenlty we have some interest in a physical defenceman and Barret Jackmann's name has been mentioned a lot.

TFP Link

So what about:

To Devils:

Jackmann

To St, louis:

Janssen

3rd round 2008

Devils get a solid stay at home guy to eat up minutes, St louis get a home town kid and a draft pick to sweeten the deal.

As much as I like Cam I think this deal is OK. It is a great move for Cam to play at home and Salvador, although not producing offensively like he was expected to early in his career, can't be any worse than some of the other D-men we have.

One would have to think that Lou has something else in the works to have so many D-Men on the roster.

You Devils' fans are great - best of luck to the team the rest of the season. I am now a St. Louis Blues' fan! Too bad things didn't work out in NJ but the Janssen family is very happy with this trade!!
