Devils Make a Deal

The New Jersey Devils completed a pre-holiday deal, obtaining defenseman Sami Salo from the Philadelphia Flyers. Salo, 30, is a top-4 defenseman who is solid in all areas. The Devils are still without a true Number 1 dman, but the addition of Salo gives the team quality depth on the blueline. It is unsure exactly where Salo will fit in on a group that includes Robyn Regehr, Steve Staios, Dmitri Kalinin and Patrice Breisbois.

The move did not come without a price, as leaving New Jersey is highly touted prospect Alexander Suglabov, along with defenseman Andrei Zyuzin. "It was tough to part with Sugs, " said GM Rich Epstein, "but after signing Kovalchuck in the offseason, and watching the development of Semin and Vanek, we felt that we had the depth to make the move. We really wanted another impact defenseman, and Salo can help us out defensively and on the power play."

It is unclear if Epstein has any more moves planned before the waiver draft. The team still needs a 4th line center and winger, and could use a backup goalie, but the team is just about at it's $40M payroll limit.
