Devils Trade Anssi Salmela For Niclas Havelid

ESPN is reporting that the Devils have traded Anssi Salmela to the Thrashers for veteran defenseman Niclas Havelid.

It's definitely an upgrade for the Devils, who add a solid defensive defenseman, but I doubt this is the end. The Devils' biggest need is a puck-moving blueliner, and Havelid does not fit that role, notching only two goals this season.

I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for Scott Niedermayer.
