tbf coaches will always talk up their players; plus a .00001% chance is still a chance i guess.

Except that if I'm remembering this correctly, Robinson had already moved on the the San Jose by the time he said that.

The more deals that were announced, the better and better and better this deal looked like for the Devils, and it was already pretty good.

Gelinas on TSN right now.  Will report if he says anything interesting.

Comments:

  1. He was 50/50 on being traded, wasn't certain it was happening until we claimed that defenseman from Pittsburgh
  2. Frustrated being healthy scratched, never requested trade though.  Was intent on earning a spot.
  3. Looking forward to playing with star forwards, no dig at NJ though despite what the hosts were trying to imply.

Uneventful overall, pretty standard hockey interview.  No sour grapes or dirty laundry aired.

Good for him. His past couple years have been pretty frustrating. I know they're pros, but I might have let out a little of my frustration in an interview like this. Above all, he must just feel relieved and hopeful. I hope the best for him. I don't think he'll go on to have a great NHL career, but whatever, I hope he does. Good dude.

Hey, at least we get something.  Good move by Shero.  Picking up Smith-Pelley at least.  3rd rounder is more than most of us could have expected.

Eric Gelinas is never going to be a good defenseman. On top of that, if we aren't even going to put him on the PP and utilize his one tool, why keep him around? We just got the best possible return we will ever be able to get for him.

i would like to thank legal weed because there is no other way that we would have gotten a 3rd even it is a year away.

Remember when people were comparing him to PK Subban.  Oh memories.

While I'll say the return (2nd and 4th) we got for Lee Stempniak was very good, and just a bit more than I expected; it's funny (and amazing) to think we got a 3rd for Gelinas.

A 2nd and 4th for our leading scorer vs. a 3rd for a guy who's done absolutely nothing this season, and has a year left of a contract getting paid more than Lee.

Lee trade GOOD, Gelinas trade AWESOME.
