I can see NJ trading one of Gelinas/Urbom for help up front..we have a logjam forming at defense in Albany.
Well, you have to figure one of those guys graduates to full-time duty in the NHL, whether it's Gelinas, Urbom, or Merrill.
That makes next year's A-Devs
2 of Gelinas/Urbom/Merrill
But there it's a mystery, the Devils re-signed Young but I bet he's moved to forward, Hraberenka and McPherson are on AHL contracts, Kelly's RFA but hasn't impressed (afaik), Leach is probably on the way out, Corrente can't stay healthy - then you've got guys outside the NHL like Helgeson who aren't tearing it up. And I saw the mystery man Stepan Stepanov got in a game a few weeks ago, so I guess he's in the mix too.
I think they'll bring in a veteran, whether that's keeping Corrente or adding from outside the organization, I don't know, but Albany doesn't look that logjammed to me unless I am forgetting someone. By the time Severson arrives, Urbom is waiver eligible and would probably be gone or in the NHL.
