And Subbans time frame would fit the Devils (Brodeur & Hedberg) perfectly as both have contracts expiring after 2 seasons. Perhaps the 'value' is off, but the 'needs' IMO werent off at all.

I also think a few NJ fans are overlooking the impact of losing Parise will have on this team. He was the heartbeat of that team. Lou needs to make sure he finds someone to at least partially fill that void. I expect NJ to struggle this season (if).
Nothing new. Lou wont allow that to happen
