Patrice Cormier - st johns (winnipeg) ....this season 10 GP.... 1 G, 0 A
Johnny Oduya - chicago, trade for 2013 second round pick (?-?), 2013 third round pick (?-?)
Niclas Bergfors - packaged with Patrick Rissmiller in trade to get Radek Dvorak (still on jets) and 2011 fifth round pick (#132-Sean Kuraly) ...begfors is now in KHL
the 2 picks the devils sent were packaged with Marty Reasoner, Joey Crabb, Jeremy Morin to get Dustin Byfuglien (still on jets), Ben Eager, Brent Sopel, Akim Aliu
Sopel was used to get Ben Maxwell (who they waived this week) and 2011 fourth round pick (#107-Olivier Archambault)
Eager was used to get 2011 fifth round pick (#148-Austen Brassard)
Akiu was used to get John Negrin who the team declined to tender qualifying offer, making player an unrestricted free agent.... signed with AHL chicago wolves.
alot of movement parlayed into cormier, picks, dvorak and buff
devils: loss of 1st and 3rd pick
Anssi Salmela - let go to KHL
2010 second round pick (#38-Jonathon Merrill) <--- oh ya!
We really did make out like bandits in that deal. Depending on what happens with Merrill, we just might have ended up with the two best players in the whole series of deals.
