    Anaheim needs a 2 way mobile dman now…

    Anaheim:  10th overall and Roszival
    Rangers:   12th overall and 29th pick

    How is Lidstrom's head to head record against Niedermayer? 

    Nuff said.

  8. mojo19 says:

    Lidstrom was definitely a better player than Niedermayer but not by a lot.

  9. mojo19 says:

    that's a terrible trade fror Anaheim.

    How about, Roszival for a 3rd round pick?

    Trade Lidstrom for Niedermayer and Detroit maybe wins another championship and the Devils never win a cup.
