Joe's right on this one. I would actually look to trade for Volchenkov but I think he is approaching cap dump and I think the Devils are aware of this. He is a solid #4/5 physical guy but his body has taken some blows over the years and I think his window of effectiveness will be closed by the last year of his contract.
