When I heard about Martin going to Penguins, I was like "fvck!", but then a little later we got Volchenkov and I don't really care about Martin anymore. End of story.

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


OK, I'll wait. :whistling: :D

Seems to be the popular opinion around here.

Hahah, yeah, I just think that we'll be better with Volchenkov than with Martin. Just watch. We will make it all the way to the...2nd round of the playoffs!

I really like the signing and the Cap Hit it will bring. I love the fact that the A-train will be rolling into Newark this fall. Adding grit and size to our defense is great and I applaud Lou for doing that. I just feel that we still don't have that offensive puck moving d-man. We can't hope Greene will do all of that himself this year so hopefully a youngster gets a shot at the Big Club along with Urbom.

This is okay... depending on the style of hockey they play. If they play like they did 2 seasons ago, they will be sound.
If the defensemen are going to be relied on to do anything other than defend and hold the line, well, that's another story.

Seems like Greene is getting Martin's job as a first pair defenseman. Volchenkov's puck skills are well, interesting. He pretty much has to play with Greene.


this was my thought as well about volchenkov - we have to be going back to 2 years ago. it's going to be a terrible transition game but it's also going to be a hard forecheck. i hope. volchenkov is the better of the two deals for sure, and he can definitely play the hardest minutes and come out looking capable.

Aside from our trasition game MAYBE not being so hot and a hard forecheck, you forget the fact that Volchenkov is going to make other teams think before they come flying up the neutral zone and into the offensive zone. We have't had a player like this since...

I just get a feeling that they're gonna figure out where Volchenkov plays pretty quickly and thus charge up the other wing...

Have faith in Andy Greene. A lot of people round here don't have enough love for him but he was one of the twenty best D-men in the league last year.

For about two months.

That's not meant to be a knock on the guy. He's got great potential and I hope he has it in him to put it together for a full season. But a guy doesn't get himself into the league top 20 based on two months while the rest of his career has been marred by inconsistency thus far.

Fair enough. I won't say he is a premier d-man just that he played like one last year - even if it wasn't for the whole year. 2 months isn't fair though.

2 months may not be fair, but 68 days is, from october 24th until december 31st he was probably the most productive defender in the league. The 2.5 months after that not so much. We would all love to see him play at a high level for an entire year, but it just hasnt happened yet.

"Jay Pandolfo's last game at Boston University was against the Wolverines," Madden said. "My job was to cover his line. Jay had scored something like 30 goals in 30 games that season. And that was his 31st game. Guess what happened?"

"We always joke about it now," Madden said. "Jay tells me: 'You shut me down that game and you've been shutting me down ever since. The only problem is, now you're playing with me. ' "
