Zidlicki is better than Foster, but he's not great. He's more of what we already have (2nd pairing type d-men).
Palmieri isn't great but he's going to be a NHL player.
Veilleux was/is an NHLer, even if he is borderline.
The second is a lot
and potentially a pick in 2013 as well.
All for a guy that wasn't happy in Minny.
I guess Minnesota scouts were less impressed with Palmieri than almighty Trottier.

Elias, Sykora and Zidlicky are good friends. They went to Florida together with their families (and Zubrus & family) during all-star break.
I have a feeling Zidlicky will be happy in NJ
All in all though, I'm not going to miss any of the guys going to Minnesota, and Zidlicky has 40+ point potential. And we still have a 2nd.
Really can't lose here IMO.
I came in peace.
Roster player: Foster
Pick (norm): 2nd
Facepalm? Big potential my ***.
Veilleux? DATW might be upset.
Conditional 2013? Conditions will not be met.
Quantity? Yes. Quality? Nope.
This is sellers` market.
I just know he`s going to pick it up. We really didn`t give up THAT much. Foster + 4th would be unreal. Move on.
