Leopold would (I hope to god at least) be an only for this season acquisition. If he costs a 3rd or less it may be worth exploring, but he probably does not. Volchenkov and Tallinder both provide higher levels of defensive play and could probably be had cheaper, Volchenkov especially. That's 2.

If we're looking long term, probably go all in for Smid in FA. That's about the best fix we can get.
I'm talking about someone we could pick up this season, not in Free Agency.

There is no way the Devils get rid of Volchenkov for any of our players. Especially since Zidlicky is apparently struggling.

You wouldn't have to give up the world for a notable defenseman. If you want a Superstar you won't get one. Leopold is alot better than a Poti. Look up stats and highlights. Plus Poti will be gone, like I said, and even if he stayed he only has several good seasons left in him.
