I suppose I'm in the minority...
I'm just not convinced that Zidlicky's offense contributes enough to outweigh his defense. If this team is going to be suiting up the likes of Salvador and Volchenkov, they can't just throw Zidlicky out their on the blue line and pretend everything is fine. Especially when this comes at the expense of solid two way defensemen like Tallinder, Larsson, and Fayne - whom I think all of them are capable of moving the puck just as well towards the attack zone as Zidlicky and better overall.
Sure Zidlicky can score better than any of the Devils D but I'd rather see Lou address the scoring issue by getting better forwards and using solid D men than standing pat with the forwards he has (or bringing in more 3rd liners for top 6 roles) and sacrificing defense for offense on the blue line with Zidlicky.
I feel that bringing Zidlicky back just waste money that should go towards forward help and continues with the logjam and taking away of minutes of D that can actually play defense. If Lou does bring Zidlicky back - there better be a trade or two moving some defenders out.
