Tlusty is also 3 years younger (despite having been in the NHL for as long as he has) and just completed his first 20 goal season of his career. Zajac has netted 2 60 point seasons (Tlusty has never come close until this season) when he was around Tlusty's current age as well.
All I'm saying is that it's easy to pick and choose stats. Let's not act as if Tlusty would be a huge upgrade to Zajac based off of one half of a season. Zajac had a down and very streaky 48 games, just like the majority of the Devils team. I have faith he will be fine.
As for Tlusty, after the season he had, Carolina will want a lot. His value is at an all-time high for his career.
