Parise-Henrique-Kovalchuk
Sykora-Elias-Zubrus
Alexei-Josefson-Clarkson
Zalewski-Mills-Carter

Someone is definitely getting sent down between Boulton/Janssen and Tedenby or Devils might go out and actually get a legit RWer in a trade involving Zalewski/Tedenby and hopefully Janssen (as good measure). A fourth line of Zalewski/Tedenby-Carter(future Zajac)-Clarkson would be pretty good. Assuming Zajac cant really do much ice time this year, we could afford to limit him to fourth line duty.

I get the feeling that both the third and fourth lines are going to be shaken up because of this.
Alexei and Clarkson are and should definitely be together, but... Josefson? Not so much. Carter or Mills? Maybe.

Ah yeah. Duh why is he not on the Devils roster.......


Well if the roster stays the way it is with the addition to Ponik, Lou is going to have to start going outside of his comfort zone as far as jersey numbers go.



Maybe he'll be Teddy's #21? Is that his number.. ?

Lamoriello said he has no plans to trade for a defenseman because of Tallinder injury. He expects Greene back after all-star break.

Lou said that he plans to have Ponik in NJ intime for tomorrows game but its up to DeBoer if he plays or not. I am actually happy to hear this as he seems to have a good amount of trust in DeBoer.

Carter is barely an NHL player and Mills is not one - neither of them belongs anywhere above a 4th line. The Devils only used Carter out of desperation.

Josefson is a great fit with Poni and Clarkson. Like I said at the top, I was thinking about Jason Blake for that spot, but I like Ponikarovsky better - he's cheaper, younger, and probably better.

Hmm looks like Lou liked what he saw out of Boston in our nice 0-3 run with them.

Although, I've heard Lou say stuff like this before and then come out with "Pelley is already in the system and fills in all the gaps we have".


All players must have a value so they can be traded. Lou is great at marketing players and upping their value for trades, but when it comes to marketing the Devils organization, we all know its a different story altogether.

Devils coach Pete DeBoer talked today about getting no production from his bottom two lines. Trade happens about 9 hours later. DeBoer sounded envious when talking about how good the Bruins' 4th line is. He said it was the best in the NHL.

Eh, I would guess that he will be getting a number up in the lower 30s (34 most likely) I dont see him getting Teds number. If someone goes down, knock on wood, Ted is the first one that is going to be called up most likely.

I've always liked Poni when he was a Leafs; saw him jump around the clubs hoping we would always pick him up (same with Rob Scuderi).

It sucks that his numbers have declined, hopefully the change of scenery and surrounding players help pick him back up.

I hate trades like this, they never work in NHL12. :rant:

That said, I love the trade.

Also, number-wise, I'm guessing 32. Since he seems to have always worn 23. That or Tedenby gets sent down and he inherits 21.
