interesting that Lou named Severson in the mix of the youngsters who might get a shot. Urbom, Merril, Gelinas, Severson. 

 

those are 4 prospects that we can at least be excited about. Not saying we have to overate them and pump their tires but the potential is there.

Dream come true would be for Lou to bring back Zid and dump one of Sal or Volchenkov to make room for Merrill

Wow this is almost as big of a robbery for Buffalo as the Schneider trade was for the Devils.

 

Really surprised that they could not even get a pick for him. This sucks. I really like Tallinder and thought he was good for this team. He was so good in 2010-2011 during the hot streak.

A bit OT, but if anyone wants to buy authentic game issued Tallinder red/Green jersey, PM me.

Ok, I really don't know what the fvck people wanted Lou to do, no one is taking Salvador or Volchenkov with the years and money they have left, its a fvcking pipe dream. I swear, people will bitch and moan about anything. This was EXPECTED, and not at all surprising. Best of luck in Buffalo Hank.

they could've gotten a pick and this waste of a reserve list spot, if tallinder had that kind of value, but apparently he didn't.

Lou's done well this off season, the only thing left I'd like him to do is buy out Volch (since nobody wants him)

TG

Having eight healthy D on roster last season, most of them vets, did not work out well for Devils last season, I thought.

 

Looked like it would be a positive on paper, but having 2 unhappy guys every night didn't' work. Guys put team first, but still unhappy.

 

 

glad TG agree with me there. It was the most stupid thing to keep 8 dmen last season. Absolutely ridiculous i felt so bad for those guys. Fayne would get scratch one game then would play against the top line the next game. Rookies would be scratch after a mistake for 4-5 games while some vets would get away with murder on a daily basis. hope this is over

i read that Buffalo had to send a contract our way for that deal to happen or something. it was mostly on their side.

Why are people acting like this is an awful move? Do they realize what the phrase "salary dump" means? It doesn't mean "even trade for young forward". I'm not toasting with champagne, but I am happy it happened.

Even though i'd like to see him gone let's not get too overboard with ditching all our vet dmen... i dont like him and our young prospects are obviously the new shinny toy that you cant wait to unwrap but Tallinder and A-train were playing big minutes, not sure all the other guys can take that workload on a night basis. Gotta be careful

I know the first buyout window closed, not sure when the second window is, if there is one.

Second window is closed for the Devils, they don't have any arbitration cases.

I thought you could buyout any player during the off-season at any time?

 

The compliance buyout to my understanding was the one that had a window period. I may be wrong.

Volch is getting another year. If he bombs he will get bought out next offseason.
