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.
I'll be honest, that was me.
LOL, guess he didn't know what he was talking about.
Glad to hear that LOTCB feels Tallinder is underrated, but I believe my point (no clue what thread it was in originally) was that Tallinder is not a straight-up replacement for Paul Martin. I'm happy to read good things about Tallinder, but Paul Martin is the better player. This isn't like replacing Niedermayer with Malakhov, but as a one-for-one comparison, it's a downgrade from Martin.
The Volchenkov signing makes this easier to stomach, at least today (and yesterday).
Also, go easy with throwing around statements like "he doesn't know what he's talking about." I disagreed with your evaluation of Martin, Tallinder, and Ruslan Salei, but never claimed you didn't know what you were talking about. This board is all about opinions, and everyone's entitled to one.
