The only way I'll get excited is if I read "Devils trade Tallinder to so and so team for draft picks" and "Devils also trade Greene to so and so team for draft picks"
I feel like that's too reactionary. Tallinder was the best d-man last year when healthy and is a solid vet, especially for the young Swedes, plus he's on a fair contract. I feel he has the most value staying with the team.
I'd rather move Greene despite the fact he is also on a nice contract, younger, and also productive. He's not as good as Tallinder in my opinion but he should be a nice center piece of a trade package to get a top 6 forward. If the Devils do trade someone, it better be for a quality NHL player, not picks right now.
Honestly, the Devils don't even have to address filling in the gap for Parise leaving right now if Lou doesn't find the FA or trade markets appealing. He has time to deal during the season and the team should be competing fine without Parise. None of us want to wait that long but we may have to.
