Not sure if the Devils are necessarily a better team without White at the moment, but the Devils have a lot of young D-Men knocking on the door and I don't think it’s not much of a reach to think a guy that gets a chance in White’s spot will eclipse his play by the time the playoffs roll around. Tallinder, Greene, & Volchekov are locks…Larsson is a good bet to make the roster, leaving only really two spots open. Fayne & Taormina both played well for the Devils last year and would deserve spots if they can repeat their play. Urbom made the team out of training camp last year before struggling, but is expected to compete for a spot. Corrente and Fraser are also signed and have NHL experience and will be competing for spots & who knows if anyone else like a Gelinas may impress in camp or if Salvador returns. I’m fine with the move to drop White and think it’ll benefit the Devils in the long-term.
Who knows if Lou has something else up his sleeve though or if he’s been tasked with shedding salary.
