Maybe Lou is seeing how strong Boston is with 4 solid lines. Hopefully this deal bumps the right guys out of the lineup.

Tedenby is done for the year.

I guess it couldnt hurt to have him around here, still its not breath taking.





Well in reality he's on a better team now, hopefully he plays like he wants to be in the playoffs. I'm hearing he's a FA at the end of the year so if he ends up sucking I guess the Devils won't have to deal with him any further after the season.

He's definitely an upgrade to the 3rd line. One thing I like that he brings is that he plays a physical game. His stats already put him 3rd on the Devils in hits. Plus, he's a big dude. I think this was a steal for the Devils at best and a wash at worst.

Devils gave up not much and got a guy who should upgrade the 3rd/4th line, I like it.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

I'd like to think this is a precursor to a bigger move for D depth pushing Teddy out

Poni was horrible here in LA.
6'4 but sift as charmin, reminds me of Steckle - doen't use his size.
Also rumored to have attitude issues - but Lou doesn't usually bring in guys like that.
More apathetic then anything.

We'll see - good depth move for now.

What is this the third or fourth Ukrainian to be on the team? Vishnevski and Tverdovsky are the only two that I can remember being Ukrainian.

49 games this season with 15 points. -12. 2 points in last 5 games.

Yeah, but I kinda fear Zajac will be on the shelf for longer than the team's letting on. I want to say shut him down until April, allow him to rest and rehab, use the reg season games in April to get in shape for the playoffs and have him 100% for it.


Problem is that it can take him 30-40 games to get back into gear, as we saw with Parise (who is still not at 100% if you ask me). If you wait until April, Zajac probably won't be anywhere near prime condition for the playoffs. Devils need to play him as soon as he's pain-free and hope he stays that way.

Part of a trade would be my guess (after being sent back to Albany?), but probably not for a defenseman.
Any defenseman that's affordable would be redundant with players that the Devils already have.

I dont see Tedenby being sent packing after last year and having a doof of a year this year. Who knows I guess but I dont think it would happen.

If I didnt know better, Id say hes American through and through.
