Two players Habs should target off New Jersey's roster are Zubrus & Salvador. With New Jersey's financial woes, I can see them having to move some assets especially if they want to keep Parise. Zubrus only has one year left on his contract at $3.4m, which is a quality cap hit for a solid player.

He'd add even more size to our wings and quality forechecking with some skill. He's turned out to be a 15-20 goal guy but it's still something that we need. A Moen-Eller-Zubrus line would be one hell of a 3rd line shut down forechecking unit.

Salvador I can see going to free agency. He'll probably want what Hamerlik got 2 years @ $3,5m. We really need a player like him though. I think he'd be a good partner for Subban allowing Gorges to move to a partnership with Markov or Emelin.

Salvador - Subban, Markov-Gorges, Emelin-Diaz,

or

Salvador-Subban, Markov-UFA, Emelin-Gorges

I'm hoping Bergevin makes a couple of deals at the draft to add some depth to our line-up.
