A pure BEAST on defense. Oh where the hell have you been for the last 7 years?

Moves still have to be made. Hopefully Lou is working on moving a regular from the defense and offense to clear some cap room.




yes, yes, and yes.... how badly this guys needed to be in a NJ uniform

I'd take him over Paul "Whimpy" Martin any-day

We now have 5 defensive defensemen under contract

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

Hopefully we can flush Rolston or trade Langenbrunner and make the Kovalchuk thing happen.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe... Attack ships on fire off the shoulder
of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in the rain.

Another guy I'm ashamedly uneducated on. Can anyone tell me anything that will assure me he's more than Vishnevski v2.0?

Eh, a NTC is becoming a formality in this league really. We can bury him in the minors if his 4m really hamstrung us in the future.

Alright so I was one to complain about the Devils softness all year long. Volchenkov helps take care of that. I also see him helping Clarkson get even more physical, maybe he won't disappear in the 2011 playoffs like he did this year

he's the elite player of his kind. it's up to you to decide what that "kind" of player is worth. but, of that kind, he's likely the best. guys like Chara/Pronger don't count because they're "elite" two-way defensemen, the elite of the elite.

He is a shot blocking monster. Big, strong, extremely physical. A real bitch to play against. Something we have needed and lacked for a really long time.

someone else brought this point up on the ESPN board, so i cannot take credit:

this move was made for the future in mind. when marty hangs them up, what kind of person do you want most on defense while breaking in a new keeper? a shot blocking machine

Always really liked how this guy played. He's got a great motor and is arguably the best shot blocker in the league.

Very happy.

Fingers crossed on the Kovy sitch.

I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic or not but if so, this is a strong signing. Yeah there is a lot of "defense" back there but some of the D will get moved.
