If you think we are screwed for the upcoming year or the year after that (like the media seems to think) for whatever reasons, more power to you.

If we do acquire Suter and his 3.5M$ cap hit, the quick fix would be to waive Salvador who has a 3M$ cap hit if there's no takers for a trade... problem solved.
You want to claim that the Devils aren't in cap hell then propose a move that guarantees that they would be deep in it with the very Blackhawks-like solution of burying a contract to get out of it.

The Devils simply cannot take on a $3.5mil hit without moving salary out while simultaneously taking significant risks at the backup goalie position, skating an almost all entry level contract 4th line, and counting on a group of league minimum guys to round out a roster.
