Hedberg is 39...

The only way the Devils could possibly accomodate for a Bernier-type goalie is if Hedberg retires. Under normal circumstances, I'd be all over this trade too but:

1) we have two goalies under contract for two more years
2) both have NTC's
3) the first round pick is a non-starter because we still have to give up one because of the Kovalcontract.

A resounding no from NJ that could really have been a yes last season.
