2nd round pick

The Devils have about 8 usable defenders... The Canadiens need a big D-Man who can hit and block shots... The Devils need a top 6 forward. Seems like a doable trade.

Maybe not exactly like this one.. bur something close to it.

Bourque had been playing as a top 6 before getting injured, and shoulf be healthy by the deadline.

Weber is highly expendable for the habs, with Tinordi showing us he can play and with Beaulieu not to far off. Weber is also an offensive D-Man who could help NJ PP. and really isn't a crutch in his own zone. (personally love ths guy).

Reuniting the Giontas would be awesome, and I recall him scoring some important goals for NJ last year in the playoffs. Hense why I threw in the 2nd and maybe a prospect...

No Gionta would this work as well??

Rene Bourque
Yannick Weber


Anton Volchenkov


I like the framework of this particular deal...however who knows if Volchenkov would agree to waive his NTC or not.

Would you do the same deal with Henrik Tallinder instead of Volchenkov? Big, veteran defenseman without a NTC so he'd be much easier to move then A-Train.
