I understand how Devils fans say Oduya is their second best defenseman... but you can go get another defenseman during free agency, and chances are, he'd be your new second best defenseman. Why not wait on Oduya and try to sign Beauchemin?
Because Oduya is just as good as Beauchemin. Beauchemin is not the type of player that the Devils need (defensive defenseman) and is overrated because he's gotten to play with Niedermayer and Pronger.

Oduya is a #3 on most teams, and a #2 on some. Just so happens that he's a #2 on the Devils.

Beauchemin wouldn't be an improvement over Oduya. They're about comparable.

Eh, Beauchemin is probably a little better than Oduya at this time, but Oduya does have age on his side of the equation.

He's a pretty solid player, probably a 2nd pairing guy on a more stacked blueline, but he gets the job done. Money is pretty fair.

The operative word there is "try." No guarentees that Beauchemin would even be remotely interested in New Jersey. We'll see what kind of offers he gets tomorrow.

Might as well retain your guy if you can.

Nice! now hopefully Lou lets Madden go tomorrow and somehow finds a way to trade Pandolfo and it will be a decent offseason.
