Wikipedia says the guy was charged with rape and released from his Swedish team in 2005.

Charges were later dropped. It was him, Huselius and Andreas Lilja btw.

Lou and I think alike. Tallinder and Volchenkov are much better than just Martin.

I say it's a solid signing of a solid D Man. No blockbuster but a good move nonetheless.

NEW JERSEY In keeping with the fact they are the Devils, New Jersey actually went with a villain by the name of Lex Lou-Lamoriello, an evil genius who finds ways to get around the salary cap until he is stopped in his tracks by Bett-man.

Man I was really worried this was it. OK. Im OK with this now.

I'm so embarrassed at how stressed I was thinking how this one thing could make anything happen... but with Volchenkov... blahhhh I cannot believe how relieved I feel. Posted Image I feel like a jerk how kind of upset I was getting trying to think about this. :giggle:


Wikipedia says the guy was charged with rape and released from his Swedish team in 2005.



Ahhh -- he was one of those guys! Remember the three kids in Sweden? He was one of the ones charged? One was let off I know... the other two said they thought it was consensual? I thought the whole thing was dropped :noclue:

YES Lilja -- ... was it Huselius or Tallinder that got let off of the charges?

Andy Greene is still our best defenseman right now.

Take a second and let that sink in.

A guy who was healthy scratched to start last season is our best DMan.


The only guy on the D who can play the puck.

Salvador has to go. White hopefully too.

One thing Lamoriello mentioned to me is that he's got young Swedish kids on D and he loves the way Tallinder helped Tyler Myers in Buff

With Urbom almost making the team last year, it sure seems like the Devils think he is almost a lock to do it this year.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Also, said Tallinder, who is from Stockholm, will be the perfect defenseman to tutor Alexander Urbom -- as he did with Tyler Myers in Buff.

Not to mention having another veteran Swede on the team will be nice for 2 certain young men.

I know he's experienced, Sedish and probably a good mentor... but he's still awfully overpaid. The man hit 20 pts. TWICE in his career and get 3.375... ugh! :doh1:

3.375 Is a good amount of money. He's not an offensive d-man so I won't judge his point totals but I'll give him a shot to earn that money.

As a longtime Sabres fan I can tell you I was disappointed to lose Tallinder....very underrated defenceman, and when he was out of the lineup for the Sabres over the years, you can see how the Sabres missed his presence in the lineup.

This is so funny. A couple weeks ago when I said we should sign him, someone told me I should ask you about Tallinder if I thought he was good. LOL, guess he didn't know what he was talking about.
