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.
NJ's not looking for a goalie for another 2 years. so we are trading a 1st line center and iron man (zajac) and a top 5 goal scorer (kovalchuk). for a top 6 forward(kesler), a bottem 6 forward prospect that can hit (kassian) and a goalie that is not needed right now. so how is this good for nj?
