However, Zajac is getting overrated. I don't believe he's peaked yet, but he probably isn't worth that package on talent alone. The only problem is that the Devils have no depth at center. Plekanec is coming off a down year and there is no guarantee he bounces back. Hamerlik was a good player, but I haven't watched him play consistently lately. Eitherway, the Devils are moving into a younger, cheaper direction. The direct opposite would be acquiring Hamerlik.
Simply put, this trade does not make the Devils better, and thats the bottom line.
He's worth the package due to Hamrlik (and his atrosious salary) being included.
If Zajac really wants out of Jersey, I wouldn't mind making a trade with Montreal. I like Plekanec, and D'agostini seems promising enough. I wouldn't want to touch Hammer's salary though.
