@TGfireandice: Ponikarovsky on trade back to NJ: "I was surprised and excited in the same time."
@TGfireandice: More Ponikarovsky: "I know the team, I know the way they play and I think a lot of things that were done in the past kind of suits me."

For most of the playoffs he was with henrique and clarkson even strength, correct?
I doubt he takes Elias' spot, but I could see him with kovy and zajac, matteau goes down, and yayo-loktionov-butler makes our final line

If it wasn't for the union we would have Larsson. bettman wanted our 2011 1st round pick. The union was the one that lobbied for us to have the option to choose. So we should be saying thank you.

Why didn't we just resign him?

I'd rather not move Tallinder for futures, especially something as impractical as a 4th. We're built to win now. I want a roster player coming back.

I am almost positive.
Correct. We can send him back to the Q though. I think we have til March 1 or something.

Lou was busy trying to sign Zach, and Poni didn't feel like waiting around.

When they put Bernier, Ponikarovsky and Zubrus together that line was amazing

I doubt Butler is getting sent down. I have a feeling a trade is up next & Tally is out of here.

That line was awesome. Just ate up puck possession like a machine.

And with our new top pairing that would make for some LONG shifts in the offensive zone.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Poni with Kovy and Zajac Friday.

I agree. Just the point that a fourth is not that big of a deal when they have an asset like Tallinder that can net the team a pick or a serviceable roster player.

Yeah but why keep 2 extra d-men. Harrold was a bonus because he could play wing but we've essentially added Butler, Lokti, and Poni to the forwards and Harrold is way behind in playing forward and behind Tallinder on the D depth chart. I say he gets put on waivers...least likely to get claimed and if he goes down, we can call him back up with no re-entry waiver if we have any injuries to the D. Plus have Urbom knocking on the door.

Would Tallinder return a player good enough to knock someone out of our lineup? I'd be down with getting a 3rd and a 5th for him.
