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.
Tallinder is someone we would only want if we were in the hunt and had some D injuries. If we are out of it, we aren't going to trade old for old. We would most likely try to secure a prospect or picks.

The Jets rollercoaster ride is now over. Please wait for it to come to a complete stop before exiting
