Palmerir plays right wing as well.

Him being called up doesn't make much sense if someone isnt getting shipped out.

This could lend some credibiltiy to the Langs/Leafs trade.

I know a lot of people aren't keen, but i like Palmieri, he has show glimpses of having real potential. When he played with the Devils last year he didn't look out of place IMO.

Why'd they put him through if they hadn't gotten a "ping" from the Isles. because lord knows, they were the only team claiming him. well, this is a debacle, now they have to bring back someone they gave a farewell "burial" to.

since Zach might miss the rest of the season, I'd just keep him down there

He's been recalled? Come on, Lou, really? BURY HIM IN ALBANY!

On another note, now I feel a little bad for Rolston because he's been humiliated. Not even for $2.5 million, says the entire league. Embarrassing.

I knew he'd be re-called after this. You really think Vanderbeek wants to pay a guy $5 mil to play in Albany?

seems like our best hope is that sometime next season, someone will claim him on re-entry because its the final year of the bad deal.
I think they should let him play in Albany for a bit. Having him back will be brutal for all parties

I'm worried that next year will be too late. I mean, Parise re-signing is such a priority. The possibility of Winky stopping us from signing Parise scares me half to death.

I think this may end up forcing Lou into retirement. He sounded like a defeated man the other day.

Not likely. But if it did happen, it would be one of the worst things to happen to the team in a long time (besides this catastrophe of a season).

It may be time. He's just been a disaster since the lock-out.

Can you show me the math where not getting rid or Rolston this season prevents signing Parise? I don't see it. They'll have 12 million dollars or so to sign 6 or 7 guys. Add in that you can go up to 10% over the cap in the offseason and the Devils have almost 18 million dollars to play with in the offseason. This includes Rolston and Clarkson being on the cap.

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.

This whole move is bizarre...Will Rolston play better now?

You only do this if you are sure another team will take him

Why? I'm not sure I understand why this is so horrible and disastrous that a guy not playing well was put on re-entry waivers and nobody claimed him. Is Rolston going to play worse? Cause the team to tank? Why is any player put on re-entry waivers and then not claimed?

The Devils put Rolston out there on re-entry, nobody claimed him, both Rolston and the Devils are at the same basic spot they were a month ago, except Rolston's agent can now be more flexible in working out a deal since he knows the Devils can eat at least a 2.5 million dollar contract in a deal. I don't see this vast amount of harm that apparently have been wrought.

With Palmieri and Rolston coming up, there has to be a correlating move. Any news?

Really? You don't see it?

The team has told Rolston that they would like to move on without him. They have told him he is no longer wanted. And now -- he's back. That is not a productive situation.
