Just compiled a list here of interesting players available, whether Devils are interested is another ordeal in itself,


Steve Shields
Petr Buzek
Arturs Irbe
Theoren Fluery
Claude Lemieux
Curtis Joseph
Ivan Novoseltsev
Milan Hnilicka
Alexander Daigle
JF Damphousse
obviously Ray Giroux pops out
Mariusz Czerkawski
Pavel Bure
Chris Therien
Brian Boucher
Shane Willis
Vadim Sharifjanov

Any real surprises? Amazing that there really is a lot of talent out there, but hard to give up someone on our roster for a lot of these guys. Most have serious baggage, which is why they are on the list.

I think Giroux or Bicek may be taken, and when one of them goes you can take another off the list. Maybe Lou knows somebody will take Juri early [because they have talked] and then he'll take back Ray. Maxim may also go if somebody rereads his Jr. evaluations.

Therian is a pretty good player and Flyers him too much but somebody like the rag$ may take him.

* Who will take Cujo--the rag$ get him for nothing?

Yea CuJo is probably the biggest name out there, with the least baggage. Would love to see a guy like Bure come along, but last I heard his career was in jeopardy with knee injuries. Fluery also has tons of talent, but of course is not a team player and has alcohol problems. Lou didn't want him 2 years ago, he def. wouldn't want him now. Maybe C. Lemieux might spark some interest. We'll see.
