Jones (Off to a slow start 5pts, -9 through 16 games but has potential to score 25-30 IMO)
Conditional 2013 1st round pick, if O'Rielly doesn't resign.
Why Colorado does this:
O'Rielly isn't signing in Colorado, and they need a d-man bad. Larsson is a franchise dman who can help out on a very thin blue line. Yes I know Colorado wants a roster player, pick and prospect, but they get a franchise blue liner which, is something they could use. Plus they are missing Erik Johnson who is out with a concussion.
Why New Jersey does this:
They need offfense, they are 21st (?) in goals for, and it doesnt help out that Zubrus is out. This move helps out their offense big time. They do lose Larsson, but they do get a young O'Rielly back.
Line ups (No clue what they look like, just something I threw together with websites i found):
Landeskog - Stastny - Parenteau
Mcginn - Duchene - Hejduk
Mcleod - MItchell - Kobasew
Bordeleau - Oliver - Butler
Hejda - Larsson
O'Byrne - Hunwick
O'Brien - Barrie
Kovalchuk - Zajac -Clarkson
Eilias - O'Rielly - Jones (assuming he picks up his game)
Ponikarovsky -Henrique - Gionta
Bernier - Matteau - Barch
Salvador - Greene
Zidlicky - Volchenkov
Fayne - Tallinder
Other temporary goalie, while Brodeur is injured.
Anyways there she is. Don't flame, it's 1:30 am where I am, and I've been up since 6am, because of uni, and this seems like a good idea in my half awake state. Maybe throw in some picks here and there? I don't know, Im too tired to add them right now...
