Why for EDM: They kill 2 of their glaring holes with this trade. They get a young D-man who can step in and play in the top 4, and run our PP, and a young tender to tandem with Conklin.
Why for NJD: They get a big mobile defenseman who can soak up minutes, and is still only 24. Tommy Salo is in the last year of his contract, with a club option for next season. Gives Scwhab the playoffs and the summer to recuperate while Salo fills the back up netminder position
Not a bad deal at all, but, the devils basically need 3 things: A big winger like Rob Niedermayer. Defensive depth, like Brad Bombardir (Stevens should be back in late March). And a back-up goalie who doesn't have much value. That's why your trade proposal won't happen.
