Not bad at all considering what we gave up. Ponikarovsky has really dipped since being in Toronto but he's still much better than almost anyone on our 3rd / 4th lines. If he can regain the form he had for the Maple Leafs then this is a steal and a half.

Yea. Wow. He had about 20 goals around 2 years ago. He can't be any worse than Foster!! :pray:

Yeah, Ponikarovsky is good in the corners. I think we'll see Tedenby going to the minors sooner rather than later. He's a good fit with Clarkson, I think - Ponikarovsky-Josefson-Clarkson is a pretty formidable 3rd line.

It's a shame Tedenby didn't work out this year. If he had, we'd be able to roll 4 offensive lines once Zajac is back in the mix.

Yeah, but Josefson can make people look good on the 4th line. At the very least they won't get pinned in their own end. And if Ponikarovsky pans out we'll be rolling 3 real good lines.

Yeah, but I kinda fear Zajac will be on the shelf for longer than the team's letting on. I want to say shut him down until April, allow him to rest and rehab, use the reg season games in April to get in shape for the playoffs and have him 100% for it.

He's definitely an upgrade to the 3rd line. One thing I like that he brings is that he plays a physical game. His stats already put him 3rd on the Devils in hits. Plus, he's a big dude. I think this was a steal for the Devils at best and a wash at worst.
