For Riley Boychuk.

Per Bill Hoppe.

Devils have reportedly traded Henrik Tallinder to the #Sabres. Interesting.

So, who saw that one coming?

Until they realize Hank is older, slower, and weaker then he was when he played here. Not the same Tallinder as Myers remembers.

Nice move.  I always did like Hank.  $3.375M for a year is far from a back-breaker.

Ehrhoff-Sulzer
Tallinder-Myers
(McBain-Ruwehdel-Pysyk-Weber-McNabb)

Gives the new kids some time to grow.

That's worse.  It's not like NJ is their usual defensive powerhouse selves anymore...and he could stay in the line up.

Since I know you were wondering...

"Boychuk, 22, was Buffalo's seventh-round choice, 208th overall, in the 2010 NHL Draft. He spent last season in the Central Hockey League, collecting eight goals and nine assists with Fort Worth"

Dmen that COULD make the NHL team this season:

Myers (right), Ehrhoff (left), Weber (left), Tallinder (left), Ristolainen (right), Pysyk (right), McNabb (left), Ruhwedel (right), McBain (right), Sulzer (left).

Five right, five left. Chances are we'll take three from each handedness and then we'll have a seventh.

Myers, Ehrhoff, Weber are my three LOCKS to make the team. That's two lefties and a righty.
So there's one lefty to choose from: Tallinder, McNabb, Sulzer. Of that, I think it's obvious Hank will be the choice.
From the right, there's two left. I think Pysyk will be one and then Ristolainen, Ruhwedel and McBain will fight for the last top six spot.
Then they'll choose from the two that lose out there as the seventh.

My guess, at this moment:
Myers-Tallinder
Ehrhoff-Pysyk
Weber-Ristolainen
Ruhwedel


That leaves McNabb, Sulzer, McBain out. I REALLY think McNabb is going to be a good NHL dman someday. So maybe he becomes trade bait at this point.

Darcy:
"We are excited to have Henrik back in the mix on our blue line," said Regier. "His experience will be invaluable not only in adding more stability to our back end, but also in the development of some of our younger defensemen."

It fits the new Sabres UFA signing mold.  Hank can perform and serve as a good mentor.

Again, for a team in rebuild mode this is a smart move in case your kids aren't ready. He won't impress anyone, but who cares.

I thought this thread was in jest when I first saw it.

Solid, solid meh.

Like our center situation, I do not want the likes of Tallinder taking ice time away from one of our young guys.

I wonder if they owe him any backpay.  The team went under here in Fort Worth.

Tallinder will likely get paired back up with Tyler Myers, get him going again... Sabres aren't done, though. Regier's working the lines.

That leaves McNabb, Sulzer, McBain out. I REALLY think McNabb is going to be a good NHL dman someday. So maybe he becomes trade bait at this point.

Finally, someone has Pysyk in the top 4. I think this board is really undervaluing him. Him and Erhoff might be the top pairing. Of course, I believe you erred when you included Ruhwedel but time will tell

And just like our center situation, those boys gotta earn their ice time.

It's good to have a legit stay at home D around again. Effectively downgrade(?) from Regehr to Tallinder to pick up two 2nd round draft picks and dump a 7th?  Just fine.
