@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
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.
