Rank the Devils defense (#3) Part 2

Zidlicky had 18 and Tallinder had 17, so we're going to do a sudden death type match-up...

Zid.

We probably won't have him next year so I'm sad.

I feel like the Devils' best four defensemen, Greene, Fayne, Zidlicky, and Tallinder, are all equally good as far as their overall contributions.

I wish there was a way to get rid of Tallinder, and Volchenkov and re sign Zidlicky. It would dump a lot of salary, we've needed a Zidlicky type player for years now, and it gives Gelinas or Urbom a chance to come up. I know you all love Tallinder, but I feel he's super expendable. Volchenkov's contract just sucks. He brings no offense, and is signed for more than Zidlicky a year. We have too many one sides defensive defensemen, and last year our defense was outscored by the Isles defenseman.

Need more PMD's!

Okay just kidding about that last part!

Zidlicky is going to be 36 when he becomes a UFA. I'm fine with him walking.

To me it won't be a significant blow if he leaves. I'd just prefer him to Tallinder, and Volchenkov. On a one year contract, and for $2.5 million. Aside from Larsson who's still a novice, and maybe Greene if he can be more offensive like he was a couple years back, we don't have much offense on the blue line. If our D could score more than 16 goals in a full season I think we'd actually make up for a significant amount of lost scoring. We definitely had one of the lowest scoring defense in the league last year.

I think the deficiencies in Zid's defensive game are overblown. He may commit to a big hit more times (which lead to blown coverage) than I like, but he isn't afraid to give the business to a guy in front of the net and doesn't chase in the defensive zone nearly as much as Hank does.

I trust Tallinder more in the defensive zone and Zidlicky more in the offensive zone. I like Zids feistyness too. I picked Zids

Zidlicky brought an element to our defence that we had not had in a while, a defenceman who was willing to go roaming in the offensive zone once in a while in order to create chances.
