Things I know about John Marino:

He has played nearly every single game for the past 3 years with the Penguins, who are better than the Devils.

He's a right handed shot.

He played the third most minutes on the Penguins last year as their 2nd line defensive defenseman. ATOI of 20:38.

Sounds good to me

I know... nothing about John Marino.

But damn, Devils have moved on from two of the most frustrating players on the roster.

Fitz gets major credit from me for that.

He’s better than Ty Smith. Much better.

Another solid RHD. This might be the death blow to our resident PK Subban  fans. Please respect their privacy in this difficult time. 

PK Subban fans and Damon Severson stans. 

Wonder if we move on from Severson in the offseason here.

Yeah I think Nemec’s training camp will factor in on Seversons future. If they think he can step right in, that gives us Hamilton, Marino, Seves, and Nemec on the right. Very strong group there

I’m honestly curious to know why Pittsburgh is doing this. Dude is under contact until 2027 at $4.4 million. Why move him?

Perhaps they needed to clear cap space after bringing back Letang and Malkin?

I think it got them under the cap. CapFriendly says they only have 3.3m ish

Holy sh!t he has a massively long contract. But he seems like a perfectly reasonable, responsible 2nd/3rd pairing defenseman and penalty killer. 

Kinda fvcking love this move, not gonna lie.

Moving on from him in the offseason would be a dreadful waste. He's probably worth a 1st at the deadline. He's possibly worth another decent NHL winger on an expiring contract if they made a trade now. 

I wonder if Severson, a 2023 2nd and a lesser prospect gets you JT Miller..... hmmm

Sorry to see Ty go (really wanted to see how he might fare with someone not nASS working with him), but with Nemec and L Hughes soon to be in the fold, not sure how much room there was going to be for Ty.

And the guy that they got back fills a need and is cost-controlled.  I understand the “why”.
