One of the Devils best lines last year was Poni-Zubrus-Bernier, the puck possesion from those three was incredible. They shut down top lines like it was nobodies business by hemming them in their own zone.

Say, hypothetically, the Jets package those two together. The Devils have an abundance of NHL defenders. Fayne is probably our most valuable piece, along with Greene, but both are unlikely to be traded, very underrated pairing. Aside from Fayne, Larsson, and Harrold, the youngest is Greene at 30. Would something centered around Henrik Tallinder, prospect, and a pick suffice for the both of them? Would really strengthen our team.
I like Tallinder... he's like a mirror image of a slightly but not much better Hainsey (which means most people here might not like him )...
I'm not sure we would unless we're falling apart for a #1 pick but if we had to take a prospect I'd be thinking:
Gelinas or Urbon?
