Funny how three years ago damn near everyone on this board wanted Volchenkov on this team.
The guy's still pretty good defensively, if anything, it'll be Tallinder that gets moved.
With his contract, people expected more and rightfully so. I think the NJ coaching staff has reigned him in instead of letting him loose physically. He's never been the best positionally. He made his money off doing anything to win and throwing monster hits.
In order of who I'd most be willing to part with:
Volchenkov (I love Volch but we already have enough defensive defensemen here)
Zidlicky (good at moving the puck but scares me on giveaways/being beat)
Also, I think people underestimate Tallinder's value. He can make very good breakout passes/move the puck when he needs to plus he isn't bad when it comes to defending. He has size and experience as well. Aside from Larsson/Greene I think Tallinder is arguably our most valuable player in terms of what he could bring in return in a trade. Pretty underrated.
