Tallinder was part of the solid Buffalo Sabres blue line last season, and has played his entire career in Buffalo. He’s far from an offensive guru, but he is a very solid and dependable shut down defenseman that should fit perfectly in the Devils’ system.

With Tallinder now signed, the stakes are raising for Dan Hamhuis as more and more teams get in on his negotiations.
