Why would you give away White who has size and toughness, something the devs lack.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Because people want a quick-fix, and apparently Whitey is the new trade bait.

The Devs can get someone good with White in a package. He's a proven winner. I wouldn't mind seeing him go.

Keep Colin. Whitey is a very, very good D-man.

I'm just happy we did *something*. I was beginning to think Lou put in his "Carnivale" DVD set and slipped into a coma.

Raffy is my new second favorite player.  THERE is someone who shows true loyalty.  Lou brought him back from Europe and Raffy repays him by waiting for Scotty-poo to make his decision.  I doubt it's easy to know that you're second priority over someone else but anyways bravo Raffy! Of course my feeling will probably change if it turns out that Raffy will be making 5 mil/yr. <_<

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>






Raffy just won a new respect from me. He showed some real loyalty in this situation. Rafff is REALLY a Devil now (not that he wasn't before, but he solidifed himself as a career Devil by waiting and showing Lou mad respect).

Exactly. We NEED guys LIKE White- we don't need to be TRADING one of the few guys we have that provide size and toughness from the back end.

He's a steady #4 guy. If the Devils are to move him for a forward, he'd bring back a 3rd liner or inconsistent 2nd-liner at best, neither of which the Devils really need. Unless a highly-touted prospect and draft pick are involved, no one's going to be biting their fingernails in the hopes of acquiring his services.

Sure Lou didn't sign this Vladimir Malakhov? http://www.malakhov.com/index3.html

:rofl:

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>



I actually made that mistake myself when I was searching to see his (the one we signed) age. I was greated by a naked guy with his legs crossed...I was like "I think I'm at the wrong site here".

Until figures leak (nothing yet on NHLPA), we have no idea. Presumably there is very little room left.

i don't think theres any sense in figuring out cap sums before a trade is made because honestly, i think its very naiive to believe that we're gonna start the season with the team we have now, and we have no idea who's gonna be traded where and to whom, so lets put money matters aside, just for a few days...or perhaps hours the way lou's acted today

Anyone else see parallels between our defense and the Transformers movie?  Autobots lose Prime from injuries in battle, Ultra Magnus from thinking he's too important, and most of the first generation guys buy it as well.  Hot Rod, the young and inexperienced rises up and saves the day to become Rodimus Prime?

Nah, I didn't think so.  My nerd side's coming through again.

Lets just say I have a really good feeling about Martin.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>



Good point, i love Martin's play, i think some people have over looked him, perhaps we should trade White with Pitkannan and get them on a line!

Like the comparison... one problem... we have no hot rod... we have several cliffjumpers though ... and a bumblebee

I think Malakhov just took up his spot in the roster. With Hale coming up and McGillis and Stevens in the picture, White can be moved and can get the best possible return. I don't buy this Stevens will be Dano type deal, especially coming from the mouth of Stan 'Don't Know sh!t' Fishler. Listening to Stan talk hockey and rumors nowadays is like listening to a homeless guy on 48th street talk about hockey. Stan said acouple days Raf wants out of Jersey and he never wants to return. Ummm yeah, what just happened? Retire Stan..

Stevens-Raf
Matvichuk-Martin
Hale-Malakhov

McGillis a reserve.

I don't mind seeing that D. It's alittle bit of a downgrade and typing that without adding Niedermayer's name sucks, but that's the best D we can put out there. White can get someone the Devs need. Especially with our star winger probably not being able to start the season.
