Is it fair to say that if DeBoer is back next year then Volchenkov gets the compliance buyout? Yeah, Lou has final say but I get the impression that Salvador is one of DeBoer's favorites and having him with 1 year left as opposed to 2 for Volchenkov could factor into it. Volchenkov has the higher cap hit too (not that the cap is an issue for the Devils). 

 

unfortunately, i don't think it matters who is the coach. the only way, i think anton doesn't get bought out (or moved) is if lou continues with his "i like a logjam defense" roster strategy.

 

that being said, there is certainly a scenario where both are here next year:

 

greene-larsson

gelinas-merrill

volchenkov-salvador

harrold

 

zidlicky and fayne are both UFA. the other 7 are not.

correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't regier still gm when vanek was traded? Also I think buffalo is at least 3 years away especially if they trade miller.

 

I don't know and its not even relevant who the GM was at the time.  They fleeced the Islanders and Moulsen and Miller will provide alot of quality picks to build from.   Murray is an excellent talent evaluator.  I would say in two years the Sabres will be very competitive.

  I don't think buying out volch would be a Lou thing to do. And the more I think about it the more I think zidlicky might be back next year (unfortunately IMO).

no doubt it was a great trade, especially if the islanders fall on their face again next year and they get a top 10 pick, but a lot of that roster will have to be rehauled before they can be any sort of a cup contender.

I'm not knocking Murray but Regier deserves some credit for when the turn around happens. He's the one who completed the Vanek trade and left Murray with an excellent prospect group (ranked 3rd by Hockey Prospectus). He also got Murray another asset to trade away in Moulson. He could have left the organization a lot worse off than he did.

Agreed.  I liked his game a lot tonight.  That was an insane block he had.  Hopefully he's ok.

Any status on Brunner and Salvador? If both are out I wonder what the lines look like tomorrow. If it's a long term thing I wonder of they bring up Larsson just go with 7 d- gelinas was pretty bad 5v5 last night and bernier can play with henrique and Elias.

Maybe just wishful thinking...

I thought he was pretty good and I'm usually his biggest critic. Hope he's okay, that block looked paaaaainful.

yeah Salvador was as bad as usual - made a nice block and had a good play or two, but there were several where he was just lost.  Given that there was no update on his condition last night I think he'll be out a while and that means Volchenkov draws into the lineup.

Part of me is upset that we have to have Bernier slot into the second line when we neeed goal scoring to replace Brunner. I wish we only carried 7D and that way we could've thrown Boucher or even Matteau in there today.

Sal playing at less than 100% is not very appealing. I hate this whole hockey mentality, "I have to fight through this pain"

Sal at less than 100% is horrifying. Combined with Marty in net, and I'm nervous as fvck about this game.

Pretty sure PDB will sit him down and play Volchenkov when they have 8 D at hand.

I knew this would happen. Brodeur starts Tuesday.

 

I have no clue what the fvck is going on in this organization. Just bend over Lou and Pete for Brodeur.

 

I feel sorry for Cory. I feel sorry for fans. I'm also fvcking pissed.

Damn, that's gonna be an emotional night if it's Marty's last game. Kinda wish I hadn't sold my tickets for that one.

If this is it for Brodeur I'm okay with it.  If it is not, it's just a bad move.
