I think we could see a trade happen. I actually really believe Lou will provide with a good signing this Summer. It's kinda like how we lost Rafalski (Defenseman, but scored almost 60 points) in 07 and didn't really bring anyone knew in. Then he brought Rolston in during the Summer of 08. Or Gio leaving in the Summer of 09, and trading, and then re signing Kovy in 2010. And the Arnott trade that year.

It seems like it's kind of been a cycle like that. We lose Parise, go easy and keep the team afloat the next year, and maybe a big signing in 2013. Maybe not Perry, but somebody. This is of course if the hucksterbeek has the finances.

This is a seller's market for defensemen. 6/7 guys like Mark Fistric are getting 3rd rounders. I have no doubt that if we traded one of our defensemen we could get a decent piece back. Not a world beater, but a decent piece.

Of course there's the omnipresent Tallinder for D'Agostini proposal, but I could see something like Volchenkov for Greening or Regin. I bet Volch would be willing to waive his NTC to go back home, his best seasons were there and Ottawa needs a pure shutdown/PK guy to play with Phillips.

Unfortunately St Louis signed Redden, and I think that might give them no need for Tallinder. It sucks cause St Louis would have been a good trading partner. No firesale, or deadline BS. Just a team that will be a contender anyway, and can give something now to get something now. Rather than just picks.

Because Henrique is a better shooter than he is a playmaker. And Yayo is best at centre and he doesn't belong on the third line.

That's an interesting idea. If we go that route, please ship out Urbom and Burlon.

I like the other two way too much.

I like Josefson but what exactly has he done to prove he belongs as a top six forward? His scoring rate is barely above Zharkov's, and that's over 80-90 NHL games. He's absolutely a third-line center at this point, the problem is we don't have third-line offensive talent so he's basically on a fourth line

I agree I love Severson and Gelinas. I have a feeling Gelinas will be as good as Merrill. But you gotta give up real talent to get real talent. There have to be teams with high end forward prospects that need defensemen or d prospects. I'd be as happy with a nice prospect swap than I'd be with a deal that netted us a top 9 forward for the present.

Gelinas got to wait until 2014 to get a full time spot unless Tallinder or Volchenkov or anybody else goes. We still have enough if we let Zidlicky go. I'm alright with parting with Zidlicky cause he'll be too expensive anyway. Could trade Tallinder, let him walk, and fill that spot with a cheaper Urbom or Gelinas for a third of the price.

I wanna get Larsson in there to take that role though.

Exactly. Fast, can make some nice passes at times and is defensively responsible. Sounds like a Zharkov clone. Would be great to have him on the fourth line, but that line is pretty set. I wonder if he could take Carters spot if we find some forward depth.

I am confident in Josefson. Look at the way he is playing right now. The points will come, especially if he plays with talent.

I don't think Zid will be re-signed at the end of the year. By then we'll have enough defensive prospects developed to take his place.

Definitely won't resign Zidlicky... even then, if we assume a trade this year of Volchenkov/Tallinder to get Larsson a spot, we only open up one roster spot for Urbom/Merril/Gelinas/Burlon until probably the 2015 season.

Youngsters gonna have to be patient. In four years though, I think Fayne (and Larsson) are the only remaining defensemen from this current group on the Devils. Not that crazy of a stretch considering only Greene will likely be considered for a new contract at that point.

I really don't know when Lou will pull the trigger to give us more depth up front. We can't continu to dress bums like Janssen and AHL call-ups forever, wich ultimatly gives Kovy more responsibilities.

Someone on the blueline has to go in order to create some room for Larsson. We are reaching the end of the month and this kid hasn't seen a shift yet, that's not normal. I just don't understand how someone can learn by not playing for a long period of time. I can understand a healthy scratch here and there but that's not the case. Larsson is still very raw and to me, he'd be better off playing heavy minutes in the AHL then practicing with the big team.

I can understand that he feels more comfortable "up here" but that shouldn't be taken into consideration. He wasn't burning up the AHL, so he still has something to learn at that level and I just think that by him not playing, we're just stalling his learning curve for no apparent reason when we can healthy scratch someone like Harrold, who isn't the future of this blueline.

I think some people are getting a little bit more upset then is needed over Larrson being scratched over 4 or 5 games. If we start hitting double digits then all the concern can be move valid.

Maybe i am the only one who doesnt see the big deal with the kid sitting out some games. He played 30+ games already when some of the current D played nothing until now. Not to mention you could argue all 6 guys we have in now are top 4 dman.

Kid is 19 everyday he practices or watches the team he should be learning something. He will be perfectly fine sitting out some games here.

Brenden Morrow is becoming the odd man out in Dallas. He could be a nice fit on the 3rd line.

Just took a peak at our schedule and now I think I know why Lou has stayed "status quo" when talking about our surplus of blueliners.

We're basically playing once every other day for the next 2 1/2 months. Someone will go down with a injury at some point or better yet, someone will come calling about one of our veterans, putting us in the drivers seat when the time will come to make a trade.

Let's just hope that's the case and we'll be able to land a top #6 forward and some picks when Lou decide that it's time to make a move.

We're all clamoring for trades, its the same thing year after year. We are trying out plugs and using stop-gaps, and when we get to the back stretch in contention, we will scoop up some depth in a trade or on the waiver wire.

The team is good enough to be in contention with the team as is, assuming Henrique comes back within their estimated time. The team roster never looks the same from game 1 to trade deadline.

I'd laugh my ass off if one of our vets can land us a top #60 pick and a roster player at the deadline, were the price always seems to get inflated.

Afro was talking about this yesterday:

Last year Lou had a good core of top forwards in place and went out and added the likes of the 4th line, Poni, and such. This year we have the 4th line and Darche waiting but lack that top forward with the departure of Parise from our core forwards. That is generally harder to fill since most teams don't waive top wingers.

Yeah, would much rather go after a pending UFA, Ryder that is.

We need goals and he`s a sniper. I`m sure he`d be a great fit with Elias.
