We are talking about 2 first rounders, a third rounder, a player and a prospect - and then the Devils still had to pay him a UFA salary plus a $3 million fine.

Now they have to lose Rolston and White.

So their current depth got beat up by losing 3 players, and their future got beat up by losing three picks and a prospect. And who knows if now they will be able to re-sign Parise and Zajac when they hit free agency in 2012 and 2013, respectively.

Lou tried to keep the team at the top by adding a UFA for a sacrifice in the team's future, but it looks like he will get neither a good team now nor a bright future at any point before his retirement.

devils need new blood.. maybe from goaltending. doubtful but what has lou been thinking of having 2 over 35 year old net minders they dont have any future in net. even their backup is old. they should try for a guy like Mason or some young goalie maybe Bernier or Quick if they get dealt.. im a rangers fan and some of the moves Lou has done lately makes me think that maybe he wants to try to be like the penguins and get a few top 3 draft picks within the next few years and try 3 really talented players
