It's not like Suglobov would have played this year or that he would have helped the scoring on the Devils. Yeah he had a few points at the AHL, big whoop he was never in the Devils' future plans much to the consternation of much of the board :P

Suglobov is what...24 and still hasn't made it. This is a good deal. Klee is big and tough, he can play a more offensive role if needed, he can be a defensive defensman if needed. Good shot, good team player.

This is a team with no second line scoring, and Sluggo wasn't called upon to help out- which tells me Lou knows something about him we don't. I'm not gonna get too upset.

Is Klee a right shot?

Neither am I. I didn't think defense was our problem. I'd rather have Sluggo in NJ than Klee.

According to TSN.ca:

Leafs trade Klee to Devils for prospect
TSN.ca Staff
3/8/2006 8:49:47 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded defenceman Ken Klee to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for prospect Alexander Suglobov.

Klee became expendable when the Leafs acquired Luke Richardson from the Columbus Blue Jackets for a conditional draft pick earlier in the day.

The 34-year-old blueliner, who just returned from an ankle injury, has scored three goals and added 12 assists in 56 games this season. He will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The 24-year-old Suglobov has 25 goals and 23 assists in 51 games with the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League. He has appeared in two games with the Devils over two seasons, scoring one goal.

Klee is a great addition. They showed a nice highlight package of Klee and he can blast the puck. I think he will be a big help on defense and will give Albelin some rest.

I don't mind giving up Suglobov but Klee, eh. Doesn't really do anything for me. Lou always has this blind spot when it comes to deadline deals for d-men though (cough O'Donnell cough Smehlik).

I don't know much about Klee...who can enlighten me with a scouting report? I don't mind trading Suglobov because it wasn't meant for him to be here in the long run, but I want to know more about Klee before I call this a good/bad trade.

Let's see what Lou has in mind here. Klee is not that offensive but maybe he'll open up the ice for his partner.

Scouting Report

Assets
Loves to use the body. Plays within his limitations. Is versatile, an excellent presence in the dressing room and the consummate team player.

Flaws
Lacks skating speed and has a tendency to get injured with relative frequency. Was better suited to the pre-lockout NHL than the "new" NHL.

Career potential
No. 5 or 6 defenseman.
