If this is for just Klein then it's a steal.

It's really a LHD/RHD issue. Del Zotto is still young and Klein was getting less and less playing time.

I'm happy with this. At worst, it's a wash. If Delzotto recaptures his potential it's a steal. Sad to see Kleiner go at the same time, he was a good soldier.

MDZ a rfa after the season. Any chance we don't keep him?

Think it's a solid move for you guys. Obviously scoring up front may still be an issue but I really like that top 4 of DZ, Jones, Weber and Josi.

We have way too many offensive defensemen now. I don't understand this trade unless Poile has something else up his sleeve

Wowwwww

I like MDZ

More than Klein

But kleins contract is one of the best


That said, I still don't mind it

MdZ has lots of untapped potential. No better place for him to reach it

Klein was a RHD. Jones and Weber are too, he didn't fit in the top 4 and would be wasted on bottom pair. I think seeing as MDZ is a RFA he will be re-signed.

Not sure why. I like Klein more than Del Zotto - who has been slumping in New York.

If Josi is going someplace - may make more sense.

So our D will look something like this:

Josi - Weber (swap that **** on the PP)
Del Zotto - Jones (same as above for PP)
Ekholm - Ellis
Extra: Bartley

WTF ive said in older post we need a LHD but not at the expense of Klein. Y Poile. This also locks us keeping Josi thankfully.

I like it going forward. Don't get the moaning from people. Klein was becoming more and more expendable. Barely noticed him last few games apart from the fight.

Fantastic trade.

MDZ-Weber
Josi-Jones

That top six in 2-3 years. Heck yes.

This also opens the door for ellis to be moved as we no longer need him on the point. Starting to think Poile isn't the problem but Trotz is.

Oh my gosh what a fantastic deal going forward. Makes us worse in the short term but so much better long term. Another young defenseman who is ready to blossom. Yes. Yes. YES

Del Zotto has been terrible for NYR. Klein was on a great contract for a longtime. Still have a crap offense.

MDZ is 23 years old. Have you seen the D men he has been competiting for icetime with? Staal, McD, Girardi, and a quickly emerging Moore.

This is exactly what the Preds needed. We had too many RHD and not enough left. This is a lateral move and the present with a lot of potential in the future.
