Devils acquire Hrdina

TSN is reporting that the New Jersey Devil have acquired veteran centre Jan Hrdina from the Phoenix Coyotes.

In exchange, the Devils gave up second-year forward Mike Rupp and a second-round pick in this June’s NHL entry draft.

I guess the Devils needed some forward scoring, but I don’t know about this one. Rupp is a big, BIG guy, and a second rounder, even a later second rounder, can turn out OK. I think the Devs gave too much for a guy that isn’t all that productive, but admittedly, I haven’t see Hrdina play a lot since Pittsburgh, either. Just doesn’t seem to fit in with NJ. Comments, anyone?
