What a terrible article. Feel like i just read a post on the trade proposal forum

Zajac - First of all he has a no trade clause so that crushes any hope of a trade. Second of all Zajac right now its pretty much the Devils best player and it wouldn't make any sense whatsoever to trade him under almost any circumstances.

Stastny - My argument for Stastny is simple. If the Avs can't afford his price tag. We probably can't either. I know the financial situation of the Avs is different than ours however, we can't be dumping 6 to 7 million (that's the rumored ask from the Stastny camp) on a marginal 1st line center when we have so many other holes to fill elsewhere.

Couturier - Makes sense in theory but as mentioned in the article you will create holes elsewhere by trading for Couturier (Eberle?). So its a sideways move at best and will require more rebuilding and waiting for the team to get better at other positions.

Spezza - He can't play with Michalek anymore. He can't play with Ryan. Injuries have caught up with him and he hasn't shown that he's back at the level that made him one of the best centers in the league the last few years. He's on pace for 64 pts and a -33 this season. Oh yeah he makes 7 million and is a UFA at the end of next season. We shouldn't be giving up significant assets for a guy like that.
