Devils Trade Rights of Tony Romano

http://www.nj.com/devils/index.ssf/2...en_walter.html


Quote:
Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello acquired minor league center Ben Walter from the Islanders Tuesday in exchange for the rights to center Tony Romano. The Devils also received future considerations from GM Garth Snow.

Walter, 25, is a 6-1, 195-pound skater who scored 50 points (20 goals, 30 assists) with 10 penalty minutes in 65 games for Bridgeport (AHL) last season. He also appeared in four games for the Islanders.

Romano, who played last season in Peterborough (OHL), was the Devils' seventh selection (178th overall) in the 2006 entry draft. He scored 69 points (36 goals, 33 assists) in 65 games and had 86 penalty minutes. Romano is a 5-11, 175-pound center from Smithtown, N.Y.
Might be a starter next year since we will not sign Madden

Seriously though, I am not sure what to think of this trade. Depends on the draft pick I guess.

No word on whether or not the Isles also get the rights to Ray Romano.

The scouts like him. So i guess you could say everybody loves Raymond.

Are you just saying that not to get whacked?

I thought Ben Walter was an UFA-to-be. I guess that was wrong...

I was under that impression too. But if he was, there's no reason for the Devils to make the trade.

I guess we'll wait for the official free agent list from the NHL... which I can't find anywhere. I thought it's usually released on the 30th.

Shocked that Romano had any value at all. Even that of a minor leaguer.

But I guess all this is is making the Lowell team better. Can't go wrong with having solid scoring and solid players around your prospects.

It's a sure thing he signs, no body else wants him.

I loved Romano, so I don't really like this, but it could turn well in our favor.

this one of those wait and see trades I guess. I think Snow's just trade happy right now. He had too much fun at the draft
