Volchenkov and Tallinder a HUGE upgrade from Martin and Mottau! Glad to see Volchenkov and Tallinder on the back end for the Devils. Lou got what he wanted as far as defense.



I agree good upgrade.

Watched the youtube someone put up of Volchenkov and I have to say I like what I see. One question though. He seems to have a thing of putting his elbows up a lot on his hits, and some close boardings. Has this been a problem for him? Getting penalties for it?

Just read he got a NTC. Doesn't make it a bad deal but you cant hand those things out like candy.

Real solid defensive defenseman. The price is lower than Martin would've been and I'm really happy that Lou realized the defensive urgency. Real happy with Lou's work today.

This is a solid signing so long as Lou has a move or two more up his sleeve.

Pittsburgh loses Gonchar and gets Martin
New Jersey loses Martin and gets Volchenkov
Ottawa loses Volchenkov and gets Gonchar


What a nice merry-go-round of D-men.


I am not entirely sold on Gonchar, especially the contract length and amount given his age. Yes he will put up more points that Volchenkov, but I am just not 100% on him.

Enjoy Volchie.....I am not sure his style is going to mix well with Brodeur....good luck with that. I am sad to see him go, but he is getting his money's worth on this contract, Sens couldn't have given him that length.

Watched the youtube someone put up of Volchenkov and I have to say I like what I see. One question though. He seems to have a thing of putting his elbows up a lot on his hits, and some close boardings. Has this been a problem for him? Getting penalties for it?


Not really a problem. If his elbows come up it is usually the kind of "after explosion" of the hit, he doesn't lead with them.

Damn I saw this live and thought "Wish the Devils hit like that"

Nice signing. I think it would take an act of Lou to get Brodeur to allow shot blocking though.

Uncle Lou made a great move by signing Volchenkov but still I am not to crazy on that NTC that he seems to give to everyboy :unsure:

I hope that Volchenkov demolish Sean Avery in the first game against the Rangers. :ECW:

Someday in 3-4 years Urbom-Volchenkov would be a nasty pair both are nasty and can hit and block and Urbom can move the puck and shoot. :)

This is absolutely 100 % what the devils needed. I am extremely excited about this signing, and am ashamed to admit I'm already over Paul Martin's departure.

Most people seem to like this signing, but I'm concerned that the defense isn't very mobile, and with Martin gone Greene is our only puck mover. Plus, the signing of two defensemen blocks young players in the system (maybe Eckford and others aren't all that highly regarded?).

I don't know.

Lou said he isn't done yet. He is hinting at making more moves, which for Lou is insane. He usually doesn't tell us anything.

Right. Let's wait until we see the final team before we call the defense "immobile"
