IMO this is fair:
Volchenkov is overrated, in fact, and this is coming from a Devils fan. He's become more of a defensive specialist in New Jersey. He's great at what he does, so the Devils don't expect more of him.
The problem is it's doubtful he waives his NMC, and I would love to see what more we could get for him rather than MacArthur.
MacArthur more or less upgrades are depth, but the Devils currently have a problem with top-end talent. To the above poster, MacArthur has had one breakout season of 60 points, when he was playing top-six minutes. Zubrus pretty much has the same splits as MacArthur, hovers around 40 points had a breakout season of 55+, but other than that, it's 20g 20a. I like Zubrus though because he brings a great possession game and he can play on any line in any role. Not too sure what type of a player MacArthur is, but in my opinion, Zubrus is better because of the versatility.
