Boychuck is not projected to be anything special but it was clearly a money drop more than anything.

 

he could be a 4th line LW at the very best but i dont think he'll make it for awhile if ever

I don't think it's something to be excited about, but it is something that needed to be done. Tallinder is a pretty good defenseman, and I think the Devils are worse off on defense because of this transaction.

 

I am interested in seeing either Urbom or Gelinas take the next step.

Wow awesome! Clear up some logjam at D and sent Tallinder back to somewhere he'll be comfortable and have more of a chance to play. Maybe makes some more room for Jagr/another forward?

Well there's that defenseman trade, but it's not our weakest d-man.  I think Tri might have a fit.  Is there somebody left that we want to use this cap room for?  Or is this making room for room's sake?

you have to think that there's a reason Lou did that. We have 7m in cap space now to re-sign Henrique, JJ and maybe someone else.

This is not something to get all that excited about.  It's a pure salary dump.  Tallinder is an NHL caliber defenseman.  The Devils gave up a lot more for Zidlicky, a more expensive defenseman that basically was no longer playing for Minnesota at the time of the trade.  I would have hoped that Tallinder could be part of a package for something useful, or might be able to get at least a third round draft pick in return. 

 

I suppose getting $3 million off the books for a year and setting a course for stable lineup a defense will help.  But ultimately, it was a move out of necessity, which almost always gets you nothing.

Like that it means giving someone an opportunity, but Tallinder was (and still is) an excellent defenseman.

 

Riley Boychuk is worse than nothing.  Couldn't even get a 7th round pick back.

im excited cause it might give a shot to one of our young guys who deserves at least a shot at making the team. Without a trade they had no shot at making it for another like 2 years

Why is everyone happy, defense got worse, wish we could keep Tally and dump Sal or Volch. This is just dumping salary with nothing in return. Hopefully Larsson takes the next step and we can re-sign Zid on a good contract.

Good move, need youth in the lineup and he was only playing half the games if that. No need to pay a guy over 3m to be a scratch. Don't think it happens but if they can move Sal or Volchenkov now I would love this offseason.
