Clarke MacArthur to the Devils

I feel like the Devils could use some more depth at wing especially with their players getting older. I was hoping they would go after Andrei Kostitsyn but he's gone now. What would it take for the Devils to acquire MacArthur from the Leafs? I know for a fact that most Leaf fans want to move MacArthur out for one of the kids to play (Kadri, Frattin, etc).

MacArthur - two straight twenty goal seasons. when he's hot, he's hot. tends to score in bunches. can be chippy and gritty when he wants to but is pretty inconsistent in that department. will fight. not good enough defensively for third line duty but is a solid producer when playing on the second line. wicked slap shot.

I'm not a huge Devils fan, but their lineup would look something like this assuming that no forwards are traded:

Kovalchuk - Zajac - Elias
MacArthur - Henrique - Clarkson
Zubrus - Josefson - Butler
Carter - Gionta - Bernier

Probably not 100% correct.

What would it take your asking to acquire MacArthur a Leaf player. Well since your a Leaf fan maybe you should be able to answer that question better than us.
This is a different way of an attempt to getting rid of MacArthur i must say.

I'd personally want to after Volchenkov but he has a NMC, right?

I'd give up Volchenkov, but its unlikely he waives. It's basically him or Tallinder that are expendable, especially if you're looking for defense (which I assume you are)

4 more years at 4.25? there better be a prospect or 2nd rounder coming with him especially with better guys on the ufa market like regehr

A B-prospect would be sufficient really.

Devils have several D prospects stay at home types with size perhaps getting the best of the bunch would be a good deal plus a 3rd.

But Mccarthur is a producer in the NHL so he is worth a late first i think

Well Ideally i'd want Merril in any scenario where we are trading with the devils as I'm a huge fan and can't stress how talented that kid is.

Realistically I'd hope for a late first rounder but this draft is in Jersey, so a second rounder with say carter?

Really have no interest in MacArthur to be honest... so nothing. That's just one Devils fan's opinion though.

I really don't have any particular interest in MacArthur. We're so thin at forward, I'd take a flyer on him for a defenseman (Tallinder), or defensive prospect (which we have tons of). But he's not someone I would actively seek out.

MacArthur/Tallinder swap or MacArthur for Burlon + mid pick is the highest I'd go.

Thought we went through this already with Volch or a pick being the value. Personally I would love Volch as he would work amazing in a Carlye type system my only question is his durability. (The injury in the KHL has not really helped his case.)

the player i think burke would be most interested in is clarkson, even if he needed to add. leafs need to add a little more grit to the lineup. clarkson would be perfect on our 3rd line.

Could work with both being UFA at end of year. If New Jersey thinks Clarkson will walk and they can sign MacA might work but I think Clarkson will resign.

I like volch but like I said at 4.25 for 4 more years there needs to be a 2nd rounder or prospect coming with him cause that is a big contract

Maybe something small but I don't think something/someone of importance needs to be coming back. Am I the only one who remembers how much hell this guy caused Toronto when he played for Ottawa?

no you are not and actually a volchinkov phaneuf pair is enticing but the length of the deal is not

Volchenkov - Phaneuf
Gardiner - Gunnarsson
Liles - Holzer
Komisarek

Can't see anyway Burke adds that much more salary to the backend. Better off trading Macarthur for a pick.

It makes no sense for the leafs to ask for Volchenkov. Defence is already set for this year and with the depth of the D in the system it doesnt make sense for Volchenkov to be here for another four years at over 4 million. A second round pick would be adequate for CMac.

If the Leafs acquired Luongo, I'm sure a dman would be involved in a deal.

Than if the Leafs peddled Reimer they could add a dman in that deal as well.

Volchenkov could be needed at that time. His style of play is surely needed anyways.

All this is hypothetical anyways...

Clarkson is the 1st name i think of when the Devils come up. Not sure if he is available...but he is on my wish list.

Clarkie wont be available. Im basically 100% sure he will take a discount to stay in NJD.

Merrill also insnt available for obvious reasons.

I would do Volch/Tallinder plus a prospect for MacArthuer
