The players going to Minnesota aren't anything to write home about. Foster hasn't been good, Palmieri never broke out like how everyone thought he would (still has potential), and Veilleux is equivalent to a bag of pucks.
The picks going the other way are a bit concerning and are over-payment.
The fact that Zidlicky wanted to come to NJ is comforting though. He, Patrik Elias
, and Petr Sykora
are all good friends so I'm guessing he won't have too much trouble fitting in there.
