Trading one of the Young Defensemen

05 June 2014 - 02:56 PM

I know we have a couple threads dealing with "the offseason" and moves people suggest. But I wanted to discuss the specific idea of trading one of the young defensemen. The Devils clearly have a logjam on defense, even without re-signing Mark Fayne, something they really should try to do.

 

Of course, everyone would just love to dump Salvador and Volchenkov (not me obviously on the 2nd guy) but there's just no way the Devils are going with a defense of

 

Greene-Fayne

Gelinas-Larsson

Merrill-Zidlicky

Harrold

 

Now if Fayne is not brought back and one of 24 and 28 is gone, you've got all 3 kids in the lineup. But that's really the only way so I think Lou will try and deal a defenseman. For the purposes of this thread, I'm going to assume they all have fairly equal value around the league.

 

If the Devils are going to trade them, it will be for a forward. Some possible ideas I came up with:

 

Detroit - Tatar or Jurco

Anaheim - Etem

Columbus - Cam Atkinson

 

I'm curious what anyone thinks about any of those players or what other F are legitimately attainable that makes sense for both teams.
