Devils Acquire Smehlik, Marshall
This is quite funny. I could not log on to the site for the whole day until tonight. So, I was expecting so many submitted articles about the trades and I saw all trade stories submitted except for any of them from the Devils.
Either the Devils fans are actually following orders that the staff will take care of the stories, that the other fans would submit the stories, or no one just cares about anything the Devils do!
Anyway, the Devils acquired defenseman Richard Smehlik from the Atlanta Thrashers and Grant Marshall from the Columbus Blue Jackets. Conditionals and 4th round picks were sent in return.
Smehlik is a great addition to the Devils, fits in perfectly and talk about a d-man who knows what the playoffs are like with a world class goalie. Marshall is a 4th line gritty player, and a much needed one for a Devils team that is small and not tough.
In the end, this defines key playoff trade coming up next for the Devils
