Devils Sign Henrik Tallinder

122 posts in this topic

Ok i understand but if you are trying to lock money for a solid D-men and Kovalchuk then don't overpay Henrik fvcking Talinder.

3.3m isn't exactly steep..how much would you have paid the guy? 300k less?

I just wish we could have a star defenseman kinda of sick of the faceless wonders.

Lou didn't overpay for Tallinder, this is what I'd consider market value for him. Solid signing. At least wait until Volchenkov is gone before you jump all over Lou for (what you think is) overpaying Tallinder.

Ok maybe I over reacted as I always do when Lou do one of his unexpected move but hey Martin leaved us for 500K.

Tallinder-Urbom? If Tallinder is credited with helping Myers adjust to the league that may be one reason he was brought into the fold, since the Devils will be bringing in some younger guys on defense, I believe.

more moves have to happen and this reeks of giving tedenby/joseffson an older buddy

we'll be talking about moving this contract over next summer.

excellent point about not necessarily keeping him for 4 years. Two years & at this price sounds real good.

let's hope you're right!

I wonder if this sets up a Kaberle trade involving Salvador. Just saying, White, Salvador, Tallinder and Corrente have similar styles and none are incredible on offense.

Andy Greene is still our best defenseman right now.

Take a second and let that sink in.

A guy who was healthy scratched to start last season is our best DMan.

He is a Solid 2nd Pairing Dman, We need a 1st Pairing Dman, Hes solid on the PK , but is injury prone. If he stays healthy its a good signing by Lou, because the cap hit is low. Still We neec a 1st Pairing Dman, and Volchenkov, Kaberle, or Kubina is what we need

Well, Lou obviously is looking to add some size to his defense. The guy's 6'3" 215ib. Anyone know if the guy uses his size, I really don't know much about him?

This is the best cause for optimism I've read all day.

This won't be a bad signing if it's a piece of the overall puzzle. There has to be more rebuilding back there to even comment on what this means.

This is what it seems like to me. We need offense on D, we all know that. Was Martin really providing that? Imo he hasn't lived up to that end of th bargain.

In the wrost case, this move at least gives us some stability to replace Martin's defensive game and keep us competetive. That if anything was Martin's strong point - he is an axcellent defender.

Now it seems a little bit redundant on the back end but more moves have to be made.

Hamhuis wants to play in Western Canada.

Just when you thought the D siutuation was the worst it could be, Lou pulls this. The team is in serious trouble on the blueline.

Hamhuis to Vancouver is done for $4.5M per year.

Anyone still happy with Tallinder for a million less?

Cuz I am sure as hell not.

Great, our top three defensemen (White, Salvador, Tallinder) are eating up $10MM in cap space, and wouldn't crack the top two pairings on many other teams.

When do we sign Malakhov and McGillis?
