Volchenkov to Devils

Lou knows we've been soft for awhile. This guy absolutely destroys people, and with Arnott back up front, we are now a lot tougher to play against.

I'm guessing this means the end of Sal and/or maybe White?

Fingers crossed.....White

In the same day we lost a fragile, overrated defenseman, we get a solid D-man and the NHL's best shot blocker. So far this day is a win.

While I agree the defense is better, I wouldn't call Martin overrated.

With a diva goalie who HATES SHOT BLOCKERS????

Not to mention we have 5 Mike Mottau's and Andy Greene now... transition WHAT???

I think you're probably correct but even if it's true, it wouldn't surprise me if the team didn't make a trade until training camp has opened and they can see how some of the younger defenseman look in camp. If they all look like crap then maybe the team doesn't deal anyone while if they look good the team can feel more comfortable moving guys.

HOLY fvck 6 years..........

This maybe means that we are not hitting the cap to bad so it give us money for Kovy.

I'm guessing this means the end of Sal and/or maybe White?

Well it depends...If Lou thinks our D is good like that well it will be all on signing Kovy and if not well maybe you will see white or Salvy going in a trade for Kaberle.

This is a great signing and hopefully signals the end for either White or Salvador.

I would say it's more likely that White, Salv or Fraser go...too many of the same type

My apologies on the Volchenkov part, man. I really thought he was headed to the Caps.

I'm not sold that Kovy will be here, though, haha.

For a $4.25m cap hit, this deal is beyond amazing.
