As far as trades, I think it's Tally for a third line winger type deal or bust. Not going to get much more than that, and we have a million third line wingers as is.

Tally for a 3rd line winger will only happen if Lou renews his contract with Satan.

We'd be lucky to get a 4th or 5th rounder for Tallinder.  He's an older defenseman on a significant contract for one more year.

Tremendous loss.  These next few weeks will show exactly what this team is made of.  They can overcome it, but their D and goaltneding better be unbelieveable during this stretch.

The thing that really is torturous about this is having such a deep team if everyone was healthy this year. 

 

What kind of luck does it take to have 8 NHL defensemen and be super thin at forward while continuing to lose forwards to injury? I mean, we were praying a D got hurt so we could at least get some consistency.

I really can't complain about the team's luck.  Brodeur is 40 years old, it isn't a surprise that he would be injured - he hasn't gotten through a season without an injury since 2010.  Zubrus and Ponikarovsky are well into their 30s, Tallinder too.  All in all, most of the key players have stayed healthy.  And thinking back to last year when the Devils got through the playoffs with only Tallinder and Josefson as players who missed the majority of the postseason - hard to get upset.

 

Plus there's simply more forwards than defensemen.  It's more likely that they get hurt.

I was praying they'd trade a D for forward help because of that very problem.  Even after a trade, one injury to a D wouldn't be killer.  Heck, our ninth D option now is probably better than some of what teams are actually icing.  But we were already lacking and without depth at forward as it was.

Play Harrold or Larsson as a forward. No other choice right now, unless you want to play that stud Cam Janssen.

The Devils picked up an entire 3rd line for basically nothing.  Their depth chart is:

 

LW:  Elias, Zubrus, Ponikarovsky, Carter, Pesonen

C:  Zajac, Henrique, Loktionov, Gionta, Josefson

RW:  Kovalchuk, Clarkson, D'Agostini, Bernier, Kostopoulos

 

w/ Matteau as a possible taxi squad sort of guy when his season's over, Barch who's a goon who doesn't fall all over himself, and Sestito for a non-goon who does fall all over himself.  

 

If they want to trade a defender in the off-season to recoup one of these picks, fine, but I think they've done quite well to avoid having to do that.

you cant hit on all of your first rounders, especially in the 20s but the unproductivity of JJ and Tedy hurts a bit. you would have hoped to get lucky and have at least one of them turn into a second liner nhl forward.  over all we're doing OK for a rebuilding period!  and who'd a thunk marty would be playing this well 2-1/2 years ago!

Harrold can play forward, he has played forward for us.  Larsson however, could not play forward...

I stand corrected! I did not know harrold could play both spots. Although sometimes I feel like zidlicky gets confused and doesn't remember he's a Dman he's been pushing the zone alot lately..I like it

Harrold can play forward in an emergency, but you don't want him there more than a game or two.

He has scored 2 goals from the point. Try to do something like Burns in San Jose, at least for some time, until we get Poni/Zubs/Kovy back.

Kovy is done for the season.  Take that to the bank.  With that being said, if we can squeak into the playoffs, and get a healthy Kovy, Poni, and Zubes back, we may be in business.
