We don't make good trade partners. The Devils are in a bit of a re-tooling phase and have more pressing needs than a long term replacement for Brodeur. Re-signing Parise is a must for them and I think they'll get it done somehow. Their needs on the blueline are far more pressing and that's where cap constraints would really hurt them.
A team like Tampa who has a lot of good elements already and are looking to take their team to the next level seems, at least to me, like a more natural fit.
