The Devils Trade Deadline Dud!

Posted on: February 26, 2008 11:20 pm

As the Penguins get better with their new rental player the New Jersey Devils aquire one more defensemen for a total of nine active blueliners.

Bryce Salvador joins the Devils as their only trade deadline move. Salvador arrived in New Jersey early this evening and is expected to complete a physical on Wednesday. He will likely join his new team mates on Friday against the Washington Capitals at the Prudential Center.

GM Lou Lamoriello stated at 3:16 PM that the Devils were completely done with moving players. His goal was expected to be two defensemen and one top six forwards. All Lamoriello acheived was one defenseman.

Apparently according to sources a deal was in place to aquire center Robert Lang from the Chicago Blackhawks. Word was that the Blackhawks pulled out of the deal.

Trade deadline day as come and passed and the Devils aren't any better. The Penguins and Capitals sure are, but Lou Lamoriello continues to remain a mystery since July 1, 2007.

Now all the Devils have is this..................

Thank you Lou.
