Guys Tallinder can move the puck. He can skate and is a big body.

Loved Volchenkov in Ottawa and I'm glad that he signed with the Devils of all teams in the East.

Will be interesting to see what the cap hit will be.

1. Volchenkov no trade with #Devils vor weniger als 20 Sekunden via TweetDeck
2. Volchenkov $25.5 for 6 years with #Devils

Guys, I didn't really want Volchenkov here, but there is no denying that he is one of the best hitters in the NHL today. Our D has been soft for a while, so this is a step in the right direction. I have a feeling Lou isn't done yet.

I personally like it. 4.25 is a good number.


Welcome to the Devils Henrik and Anton!

New Jersey...time. No seriously, I'm getting a Volchenkov jersey.

Look, we go back to the puck possesion method with Parise, Zajac, Arnott and Elias winning on the cycle.

It takes pressure off of Greene to hold back and let's him get more involved offensively with Volch holding the line.

I think that pairing has potential for awesomeness, only if Mac implements the right system and Greene can step it up another notch.

6 years
4.25M per
NTC

per Jay Grossman.

Not sure how I feel about this. Reminds me of the Zubrus deal, hopefully it works out the same way..

Keep in mind, too, that teams are allowed to go over the cap a bit before the season starts.

The years definitely worry me. With the way he plays, his body is going to break down. I know that he is fairly young but he already misses a bunch of games as it is. And another NTC? Not pleased with that.

Only 10% though, so $5.9M.

We could be seeing Sal gone, and Mottau likely will not be signed.
I think Tallinder played with Meyers last year, so maybe he plays with a young offensive D-man like Eckford or something....

A lot of players play that way their whole careers and come out fine.
