......Why?

I can certainly see why NJ doesn't want to do it. They are upgrading from Zajac to Kesler at the cost of trading a high end 1st line talent in Kovalchuk for Schneider and Kassian. When you look at it that way, it doesn't add up.

That being said, Vancouver doesn't do it either. If Zajac leaves via UFA we have no 2nd line center, that's a huge hole to fill. We also lose what is expected to be a big part of our future in Schneider and Kassian. We'd rather keep Kesler, Schneider, and Kassian and trade Luongo for a top 6 forward that isn't at the calibur of a Kovalchuk.
