I say we trade Desharnais + Weber for a legitimate 3rd line right wing to play with Kostitsyn and Eller.
This very summer Devils fans were willing to trade Clarkson for Weber straight up. I think they must not be happy with his work over there. I wouldn't give DD, he's the only young talent we got with Eller and Max that that has chance to show some offense this year. Our forwards are only gonna get older in the next three years, we need young legs to take the torch.

The ideal trade should have occured after the Boston beatdown, we should have made a blockbuster with the Devils getting Clarkson, Letourneau-Leblonc and Arnott. You get a tough guy that can play, a goon(and frenchie to boot) and a big center(even of his best days are behind him). It would have changed completly the makeup of this team.
