Nope. The Devils are having problems scoring goals, trading one of the best scoring threats won't help that.

Yes from an Edmonton POV.

But no from an NJ POV.

Stop proposing, they are both terrible, Edmonton is ripping off New Jersey, and they aren't really in need of Zajac (not that he's not talented, he's just not a need of theirs)

NJ trading for a goalie means they are looking to win now

They will NOT trade key pieces that hurt that chance.. It doesn't make any sense.. It would be a lateral or backwards move


If they trade for a goalie it's going to be in exchange for prospects or picks

1) At this point, Kevin Weekes is on the same level as Roloson so why would New Jersey take on more salary for nothing ?!?!?

2) Elias isn't getting traded

3) Smid looks like a bust and we could've drafted M-A Pouliot but Lou decided that Parise was a better gamble

With those 3 points, you kinda get were I'm heading at...

my older brothers used to trade me pennies for dimes, because pennies are bigger.

If only Lou was 3 years old.

I have a few points on behalf of edmonton oiler fans.

First off, I would find it hard to believe that the average fan believes we can get elias for nothing.

Second, smid doesn't look like a bust. He has been great this year and is just going to take some time realizing that sometimes less is more. He plays a physical puck moving role, which is hard to find imo.

Thirdly, I would also believe that roloson is more proven, has more experience and still has game left in him. His years are numbered but he brings more then weekes during a playoff run.

Finally, just because parise is a better player does mean that Marc Pouliot doesn't have value or isn't wanted.

Nice, although the point of the thread is to trades lots of crap for something better. So maybe four $5 bills for a $100 would fit the bill.

Probably true, but considering Marty will be back a month or two before the playoffs, it is irrelevant.

1) Weekes has been a bench warmer for years, Roli has actually played some games.

2) Your right Elias is not going to get traded. Atleast not yet.

3) Smid is no where near being a bust. And it was the Oilers that could have drafted Parise. New jersey had no shot at drafting Pouliot because the Oilers already picked him. This is a good a reason to trade us Elias just for the good will that was displayed when the Oilers decided Pouliot was the better player.

What is it with the Roloson to NJ proposals? As said above, if the Devils acquire a goalie, it is because they want to win now. If they want to win now, they won't trade roster players they need to win now. Therefore, the Devils will not trade roster players for Roloson.

The goalie market isn't too hot at the moment. I don't think Edmonton is going to get any where near as much as their fans are hoping for Roloson and I don't think Jersey would need to give up that much for a decent starter.

If I was GM I would give you Rollie for anything, just so we don't have 3 goalies and can bring up Schremp.

I agree with you, but Brodeur's path to recovery puts him back in the lineup at around February. If the Devils are still in the playoff hunt they'll get him back just before crunch time, so its a moot point.

That statement is completely crazy... For starters, Dwayne Roloson LOST his #1 role because he wasn't playing well, ence the signing of Mathieu Caron in the off season. Kevin Weekes has been a "bench warmer" for the past 4 years because he was taking a back seat to Henrik Lundqvist and Martin Brodeur... not Mathieu Garon. He played 61 games in '03-04 and 51 games and '02-03.

With that said, I'd rather have Weekes at 700K$ then Roly the goalie at 3M$ + losing a pick or a prospect.
