Don't rule the Predators out.  Of the 6 D-men on their roster, only Weber and Klein have played more than 2 seasons.  They could definitely use a veteran.  If they can clear Kostitsyn's cap hit, they could take Tallinder pretty easily.

 

They just ditched Hal GIll, supposedly because they wouldn't have room for him.  Was he that bad in Nashville that they are lying about that?

Tallinder will be the one to go. He's got one year left and it is a year that is completely manageable cap-wise. His poor play towards the end of last season (coach-induced or not) was the kicker.

Tallinder did not play poorly last year.  Dumping him would kill me, he is still a really effective defenseman and the Devils will get nothing for him because the league is too dumb to see that.

He's a 33 year old defenseman with one year left who might be good, but he doesn't fit in a lot of places, especially for purposes of making a trade right now and if you want to get a significant return. Maybe his value goes up closer to the trade deadline, but that's a ways away.

A draft pick and salary dump is the best you could hope to do right now, however good you think he is.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.

Yeah I just don't see anyone taking Volchenkov or Salvador unless we're taking back another bad contract. I'd be shocked if it wasn't Tallinder on the move.

Cap space wise Ottawa and Edmonton make the most sense to find a deal with.  Could do something like Tallinder, Josefson, Teddenby for Hemsky and Paajarvi.  Buffalo has a lot of space too, should they want to reunite with Tallinder.  That Salvador contract is the one that hurts the most and make the least sense.  Lou created the problem at D with that contract.

I see a deal closer to what Minnesota got for Settiguci for Tallinder.

They picked one up in Andrej Sekera.

All the more reason for Buff to want Tallinder or Volch

I would do Tallinder to Buf for a 2nd.  It's likely to be a high 2nd in the beasty east.

I thought his play was very inconsistent, especially when trying to play after being benched for awhile. Like I said, he was treated as expendable on this team last season and the Devils made it overt to me that they are willing to part with him.

 

I think Tallinder can still be an effective d-man, I did not say otherwise. I certainly cannot see Volch moving anywhere, Fayne is a possibility but I don't see the positive side of it, while he remains under contract he is cheap and can be benched if needed.

Salvador isn't going anywhere. I have the sense that Tallinder is gone. Larsson is ready to take the next step with his minutes. I think Volchenkov provides too much toughness to drop.
