If Vatanen resigns in Carolina and is healthy next year they could potentially have the greatest defensive core in history of the NHL.

Wow, they didn't even get a second,

Koukkanen is solid but this is a steal.

Haha. Let's not get carried away now. DET and NJD in the 90's.

Vatanen has been hurt lately and his value has dropped. This trade is def. a disappointment as a Devils fan.

Just no. The history of the NHL?

Check out some of those Detroit teams in the late 90s and 2000s.

Even Nashville more recently.

What a cheap price to pay! Big win for Carolina and wow do they look great for playoffs!! They could've probably gotten a goalie tho. Craig Anderson would've been a good fit.

Sami Vatanen for two good prospects and potentially a third? I do not see how people are saying that Carolina won this trade when Vatanen is a rental. This Devils got the edge on this deal.

Let's keep in mind that Vatanen is on IR and that there is no return date for the defender.

Well i mean Kuokkanen is the only prospect here and he's going to be a mid to top 6 guy, Claesson is 100% not a prospect the guys 27 has 150ish gp and 28 points. Yeah and there's also no return date for the nhl... lets hope its within the next 8 months

What makes you think he will be a mid to top 6 player? He hasn't proven he even belongs in the NHL at this point.

I mean he's only 21 and there have been plenty of good players that didn't make the league until they were 24+. That and he put up good numbers in the AHL
