Yayo scored last year and then broke his collarbone soon after. Coincidence? I think not.

Semin is far from underappreciated. He's extremely overrated. He has a top 5 shot in hockey, no doubt, but he average or below average in every other aspect.
I don't like him because he takes lazy stickwork penalties, often in the offensive zone. He is better defensively than most give him credit for, but I don't think he's up to the Devils standard.

Ryan O`Reilly please.

Get right on it, Lou.

When I interviewed him in Prague, he had no idea what`s going to happen, but he was hopeful and expected some progress soon. It`s been three weeks since then. Guess Kroenke hasn`t changed a bit, cheap ****er.
I'd love him, but I don't know where he'd fit, unless we convert JJ or Henrique to wing. He's a Devils player through and through though.

That`d be the last of my concerns.

And there you have the answer.

Ya, you make room for good players to fit in. Henrique could easily go to wing, and Yayo would thrive on the third line.

Say we do acquire him.

Tallinder+Tedenby+1st as a hypothetical. Tallinder feels their need on the NHL level, as they have E. Johnson and depth defenders. Tedenby gives them an offensive weapon. We can't afford to give up a first, so it's probably going to be altered to something like a minor league forward and a second, if a trade like that goes through.

Henrique-Zajac-Kovalchuk
Elias-O'Reilly-Clarkson
Darche-Josefson-Zubrus
Carter-Gionta-Bernier



Hell, even do Zubrus-Josefson-Butler if you want.

People have been wanting to convert Henrique to wing for over a year, it mystifies me as to why. Josefson's been a total zero offensively at the NHL level, other than Zajac they don't have another offensive pivot anywhere in the system although they can put Elias (complete with the faceoff handicap) at center short-term.

TOTALLY AGREE! And i fully believe Pete does also. Henrique will be the 2C on this team Elias will move back to wing. The only way i see Henrique becoming a winger is if we bring in someone better thats a center.

True... Tallinder and Volch suck and if we find a sucker to bite on the type of packages that are being thrown around our board, we'd be pulling a "Sather".

Let's just hope that someone has a brain cramp before the deadline and by "someone", I don't mean Lou.

Tallinder and Volch don't 'suck', they're just not as good as our other defensemen and they're clogging a spot that could be used on Larsson. You can get something of value for them (well at least Tallinder), freaking Kyle Quincey went for a first at last year's deadline.

You are missing the point of my post and just wanted to express your hatred of both players in every thread. People cannot have it both ways. It's one or the other. Someone wanted Kulemin for Tallinder. That's the type of proposal I am talking about.

And I highly doubt a team takes Volchenkov's contract. That amuses me that you will have to suffer for the next three years.

If the Caps didn't have so much of their marketing tied up in Ovechkin, they'd probably give you his contract for free at this point.

I'm well aware that if we do move one or the other, we'll be getting Steve Begin and a 4th round pick type of package.

Just the notion of moving a horrible horrible contract would be a win right there. Add the fact that we'd be swapping A-Train for Larsson on our roster and you have yourself another bonus with a single trade. That's a 2 for 1 type of deal. You lose a heavy contract PLUS you insert Larsson in the lineup.

The same can't be said for Tallinder cause his contract is a little less disgusting, since he's a pending UFA, but the point is still the same... 2 for 1.

I'm afraid Patty gets moved to left wing with Kovy, and Trav once Henrique has come back. While it would be a lot better than the other first lines we've had this year so far, it still seems to much on one line. Though I trust Pete will separate it if our other lines suffer. He's been juggling things constantly anyway.

obviously a moot point now, but looking back i wish parise wouldnt have stalled his clear intension to return home and lou woulda kicked the tires on antropov from winnipeg while also re-upping ponikarovsky (the best bud connection). i honestly think the jets would have interest in volch despite his contract (if he'd waive his NTC) bc i see them as a solid team w/ depth up front but almost a defensive dman short of really having a good chance to go somewhere. a top 6 of enstrom, byfuglien, hainsey, bogosian, stuart, volchenkov is pretty damn good. even maybe tallinder if volch wouldnt waive. i really believe the devils may have been able to do something like volch for antro + a 2nd or 3rd easily. just was pondering that in my head today.....

They just traded for him so I doubt it. Though it was a Burke move.

JVR is a jersey guy too. I'd love him here. Played pick up roller hockey with him once. He gets overvalued by his team though, because he's still young, so it'll probably cost to much.

At this point I would trade one or two of Urbom, Severson, Gelinas, or Burlon for a forward prospect or 2 of the same caliber. All of these guys aren't gonna play here. I'd move one or a few of them for a legit forward prospect.
