Thread: NJD attempt
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>villenash</b></div><div> I probably don't have the insight to answer this question (NSH fan), but I'll do my best. It does feel like NJD aren't as confident in Blackwood after some disappointing recent play, but I'm not sure they move him this off-season. I think a Husso-Blackwood 1a/1b would be a good tandem for NJD. And if he bounces back, he should have more value in a trade or can be re-signed. Puljujarvi is an interesting option though-- and if Bernier is healthy, maybe they are more likely to move on from Blackwood now instead of carrying 3 goalies. I agree that he would be a good, cheap option for EDM-- hopefully he would bounce back.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MellowK</b></div><div>I think Fitz would do it if the Devils are able to get a guy like Vanecek or Samsonov from Wash.

Hard to tell from a fan's perspective on how bad the falling-out between him and Fitz actually was. But I also think Blackwood can rebound, couldn't care less about how he played last year, as he didn't play a single healthy game.</div></div>

Thank you both for your comments! I completely agree. Blackwood just has so much potential, and I love the fit with Edmonton. Gets a good defensive defence man, and he would be very good. If New Jersey keeps him, I understand, and I think we need to give him another year to see what he is made of. If you guys got Vanecek, or Samsonov, I would love it if they did a Puljujarvi for Blackwood trade! I wonder if the players are not confident with him being the goalie. That can be an issue as well. Everyone should trust him more, and I agree I think he will be a good goalie as of next year!
