As for the deal...Pelley got enough chances. Like Tri said...doesn't say much for Anaheim that they WANTED these guys. Maybe Foster's got something.

We had a gluten of depth, spare parts... So we traded non-spectacular spare parts for an expiring contract project... Maybe Fraser can be a bottom pairing NHL d-man - and maybe Anaheim thinks Pelley could still be a checking center still - but I do think he's on his way to Europe after Anaheim (assuming he wants to still be paid for hockey).

You also can take Foster's size into account..He's a big guy and I think this is a good trade.

Unless this is a prelude to Larsson playing in the WJCs or being sent to Albany, I don't get it. Foster is not good.

Theres no way theyre sending larsson to the ahl, if theyre gunna scratch anyone it should be that waste of space marl fayne. ill take fraser over fayne any day of the week

Are you nuts? Fayne has played outstanding for a 5th round pick no one even knew about until last year. He doesn't do anything great, but he does everything good enough, he's mobile, makes decent passes and can put up around 25 points or so. He's not the #4 d-man we've been using him as, but he'll make a perfectly good #5-6 guy once Larsson improves to a true top 4 guy.

Imo, Foster will take Greene's place until he gets back then he and Salvador will trade places as needed.

Fayne has been being used as a #4 D man? Until tonight, it was Tallinder and Fayne taking on the difficult matchups in general. People are still sleeping on this guy.

Let's just hope Foster turns out well here. Seems to me like this trade just means losing a 7th rounder, but I hope I'm wrong. People in Anaheim say he isn't worth much.

Okay, let's look at this rationally. The Devils traded Pelley and Fraser for K. Foster and some goalie nobody cares about. The Devils lose about a net $500K in cap space. But they get rid of two players who have zero upside and questionable contracts (given their relative abilities) and gain a defender with a "canon for a shot." In short, the Devils are banking on some high upside Foster usage on the PP. If he pans out, the Devils are a better team. If he doesn't, the Devils can get rid of his contract in 2012-2013 and they'd only wind up "sacrificing" the awesome services of Pelley and Fraser. The end result is that this is a very low risk, high-reward move.

that is legitimately spot on. low risk, high reward. the ONLY way this trade hurts us is if either Pelley or Fraser goes on to be all-stars

Are you nuts? Next 5 games watch mark fayne every time hes on the ice and watch every bad decision he makes. thats what u need ur defensemen to do, make smart decisions. fayne does not. idc if he can put up 15-20 points, if he cant clear the zone he can ride pine. i wish he was a top 4 defenseman, but hes not, and him getting the amount of ice time he is shows how little depth we have on d

I don't know... there's always the chance that Anaheim drafts the next Henrik Zetterberg with that 7th round pick over there....

Also between Corey Foster and Adrian Foster, the Devils don't have a good Foster history.

someone's gotta take them in. (There's a pun there.)

Surprised they didn't include a toupé for Andy Greene in the trade. Then it would've been perfect.

personally i think fayne is solid...i guess he can be a little hot and cold with his choices but he deserves to be in the 4th or 5th guy

foster and taormina for 6th and 7th dman thats how i see it...keep them on their toes and besides foster could be a complete bust but my rosey devil glass' are seeing a steal here and oates creating a 09' killer tampa powerplay :boogie:

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."
