Devils, Bolts and Leafs could make play for Vatanen

Devils, Bolts and Leafs could make play for Vatanen

The New Jersey Devils are in a good spot, for sort of a bad reason.

With the expansion draft looming, and a player like Anaheim defenseman Sami Vatanen potentially available via trade, the Devils might be able to swoop in.

Why?

Well, just consider New Jerseys defense, where only Damon Severson is an absolute must-protect.

Thats no disrespect intended to Andy Greene, whos been a fine defenseman in this league for a while now. But Greene also turns 35 in October. Hes no longer the offensive catalyst he used to be.

But OK, fine, lets say the Devils protect Greene. He is their captain, after all. Theyd still be able to protect another defenseman. Probably one of Ben Lovejoy or John Moore.
