Word out of the swamp has it that New Jersey has just traded Pascal Dupuis, Yann Danis, and Tuomos Pihlman to Anaheim for star RW Zigmund Palffy. Palffy is one of the top scorers in the league, but has been known to battle injury problems and is expected to retire at season't end as a result. GM Rich Epstein had this to say: "We gave up some good young players, but Palffy is an elite skill and we have a chance to do some damage this year. Besides, I have always been a huge fan, and am very happy to bring him here during his probably final season. The price was steep for a rental player, but the fact that we were able to bring someone like him in without trading any of our key young players was important." With the top two lines already producing at a high level, it is unsure where Palffy fits in. He could play with Nieuwendyk and Blake to give the Devils a great third line, or could this mean that Mark Recchi is now on the block?
