The fact that the Devils PR said they have no idea whats going on with Zid is a little suspicious.

Devils PR team have no clue on how to market and run their own events so this is not surprising.

The usual response from them is they wait and see after practice or something along those lines.



Lol

I think this question is largely irrelevant regarding Zidlicky, because I don't think the Devils would resign him anyway.  You're also assuming he doesn't go through a decline in production at 37 years old.

 

I honestly think you're overvaluing what he brings to the team.  I know he's the PMD savior that fans on this forum have been longing for since Nieds left, but come on.

So why is Todd Cordell, a supposed devils beat writer asking the Devils PR knowing this? I am following him on twitter and I swear he is worse at reporting than the NY Post writers

I wouldn't mind Zidlicky getting moved for a better piece on offense. From what I can tell, he's not an important presence in the locker room. He's not one of our more solid D-men. He takes a ton of penalties in a year where our penalty kill isn't all that great. He's 36 years old, and his contract's almost up; he's only been here for year so it's not like we'll be upset if he's gone. If moving him can make our offense better, do it.

So lets say we can resign him for $3-3.5M for 1-2 years, would you sign him? I would. He's slightly overpriced right now, not by much, but a little. For us, that's an acceptable overpayment for a product we've been trying hard to find, so if we could sign him for a bit less, it's even better to me. Then he can help next couple years to teach the young guys a few things that no one else on our D can do.

Todd Cordell's a blogger, not a beat writer. He actually has GREAT analysis and insight; as for "news", he kind of deflects what's already been reported, which is okay. But yeah, he has a great handle on stats and our prospects.

His analysis is average at best and insight is nothing except stuff that has already been repeated or reported before.

Zids can be moved and we can still have a halfway decent, albeit not as good, PMD in Tallinder or we can call up Urbom or one of the other kids.

haha No one's forcing you to follow him, man. But regardless, I like what he brings to the table regarding our prospects (who I otherwise don't see being reported about anywhere), and odds and ends stats he seems to find. Different strokes for different folks! Maybe I don't follow the right people?

Once in a while he gets on to something, but then again even broken clocks are right twice a day.

We also have a prospect thread here in this forums that is just as good

I'm not trying to be difficult, I swear, but I wouldn't.  I'd much rather keep the spot open to a Harrold/Fayne type player, or one of the young guns chomping at the bit.
