Quick thought on the Ponikarovsky Trade


As I discussed with the worlds greatest man (and a Pens fan), this deal was just classic Lou. Zubie goes down, and we go out and immediately find another strong power forward. The fact that it also happens to be a player who was excellent during the Devils run to the Stanley Cup Finals last year is just gravy (1 goal, 8 assists, really solid play).

As Harrison Mooney said on Puck Daddy, “The best news here is that Ponikarovsky is only on a one-year deal, which means the Devils could do this again next year. I, for one, would come to welcome an annual tradition where Lou Lamoirello trades a fourth round pick to a Southeast Division team in exchange for Alexei Ponikarovsky.”

I could not agree more.

Also, I apologize for the very focused coverage. Once things settle down a bit, I will be sure to provide a much wider breadth.
