I still have nightmares of Volchenkov from that '07 series. Singlehandedly killed us.

The money is okay, but the years in combination with the NTC worries me.

I like this signing! 4.25 is a good number, and Sean Avery better keep his head up.

I also think with these two signings you'll see one of Salvy or Colin White moved. I get the feeling Lou isn't done.

4.25M is below what I thought he would get on the open market but 6 years is a long-term for a guy who's body could collapse at any moment

This guy is a machine though, he'll always give 110% and is an elite shotblocker and defensive defenseman. He won't bring any offense and isn't the best puckmover but he's damn near a second goalie out there, not that you'd need another with Brodeur

He's a legit top pairing defenseman, how Hamhuis got more money than him I'll never know. But I would worry about the term, it's pretty amazing he hasn't on IR for long periods of time with the way he plays the game. He'll often limp off the ice after blocking a slapshot or getting hit awkwardly and you'll be praying that it's nothing serious, and he's back next shift. An absolute warrior. He's just a pleasure to watch.

Tallinder plays huge in the playoffs, so does Volchenkov. Where have we failed lately? The playoffs. Gonna be hell to play the Devils.

Same with Zach Parise. I always think he's down for the count and he gets right back at it.

We basically traded Paul Martin Vs Volchenkov and Tallinder. Not a bad move but now Lou's top priorities should be Kovalchuk and adding a PMD.

I don't care if that PMD can't play defense all that well, we have the guys to back him up if he turns the puck over. I just want one of our d-men that has a offense first mentality cause as of now, our forwards are going to be pretty pissed cause they won't get tape to tape passes... instead, they'll have to grab pucks out of mid-air coming off the glass.

You can do it Lou

That's far less expensive than I both feared and hoped.

It's a great deal. Some people were speculating before FA hit that he might have an offensive game that's untapped within him. L-Rob can help with that.

I like Tallinder and Volchenkov, but I want Sal and/or White gone.

Honestly, he will be coached differently in NJ. He probably won't be blocking as many shots and he'll end up concentrating on using his hitting and defensively abilities to shut guys down.

most of you ppl were crying about paul martin yesterday now you are happy? To think I was chastised for saying Paul Martin could be replaced by other defenseman at a fair price.
