Still looking to move Nino, Bailey, Streit and Reasoner.
The Rangers have been very busy negotiating deals for the past few days. Very little has come of it.....
However, the Rangers have been able to make a minor deal, sending Mats Zuccarello to TB to play in the NHL and get some quality minutes in South Florida. He will have a great role model in Martin St. Louis to learn from as well.
He was not going to fit into the "Torts" mold unfortunately and we wanted to give him a shot in the NHL somewhere. With Gordie Clarke at the helm, even a 3rd rounder can turn into a value pick.
Andy Greene is available. Are you a rebuilding team that could use a somewhat recognizable name below your 1-2 defensive pairing so it doesn't look so pathetic? Or maybe you need to get to that cap floor and figure a guy that plays okay once in a while could help? Do you think it would be cool to have Matt Greene and Andy Greene on the same pairing?
As many of you may know, Montreal needs......well a lot. The only thing we have an abundance of on this team is contempt for Anglophones
On the Block:
Gomez- Any team looking to hit the cap floor, he's only owed 5.5 and 4.5 in real salary, yet carries a ~7.4M cap hit, and provides leadership in your bottom 6. Pretty well any offer will do.
Bourque- Looking for some Grit in your Top 6/9?
Plekanic- Will consider IF an impact player is coming back
Nokelainen- Great for faceoffs, RFA that will be cheap to re-sign (605k QO)
Markov- When healthy can anchor a D corps. Obviously injuries will lower his price a little, but is far from a dump.
Kaberle- I honestly don't know what happened to him, who ever thought TORONTO'S d system would make a guy look better than he is? Would take on a similar project or prospect/pick or small cap dump
Weber- Good young player/Pick coming back
Subban- ONLY if an impact asset comes back....and will likely be impact asset+. 22yr emerging star tha is ALREADY a Top 2/Top4 D and a marketer's dream.
Budaj- Pick, Prospect, different #2/3....we are going in a different diraection in net
Picks- #3 ONLY for an impact asset or 2..... also have 2 2nds (#33 and NSH), a high 3rd and 4th that can be traded to move up/down or for young assets.

G Jonathan Bernier
D Slava Voynov
LAK 2nd 2013
I'm pretty happy with the way this deal turned out for us. Jonathan Bernier is going to get his chance to shine in New Jersey, and will usher in a new era between the pipes for the devils. From the beginning of talks with LA, I knew that I needed to have Voynov in Red and White aswell. I think he's got good game and will continue to play top 4 time in New Jersey. Both sides are taking risks here, but I think it will pay off for us in the end.
