Travis Zajac to Chicago at the deadline

Obviously we'll need a couple of big assumptions to start this one off, because it would never happen without these two things being true:

1. NJ is clearly out of the playoff race come February
2. Zajac will have made clear he doesn't want to re-sign in New Jersey

Given those two assumptions, what kind of package would NJ want from Chicago to make this happen?

probably a 1st +

I truly expect him to re-sign though. a feeling I did not have with Parise.

Both because he's a rental and because there's a huge range in terms of his perceived value, this could go all over the place. However, if he's stated for sure that he won't re-sign with the Devils, it either drops his value a little OR starts a clamorous bidding war that sees him getting a Kovalchukian return.

I have been no help.

I'd think at least a 1st and 2nd/3rd, maybe with conditional assets based on a contract extension.

I wonder if they could pry Saad or McNeil out of there. If Chicago could get Zajac locked up they would have a really really solid 1-2 punch of guys who are great two-way centres. Not to mention Sharp/Hossa are great defensively too, their top 6 would be really hard to play against.

Something around McNeil should be doable. McNeil is a solid 2nd line center type of prospect, but with Teuvo/Danault/Kruger/Pirri all also 2nd line center type prospects (or better in Teuvo's case), I think McNeil is expendable for the Hawks to make a very good deadline pickup like Zajac.

McNeil+Lalonde (plus a second maybe?) or something in that neighborhood?

I'd rather just keep him instead of that deal.

Lou needs to do what he can to sign Travis now so that we don't lose him for nothing like Zach. At least we can trade him while the value is still relatively high if he makes it clear he doesn't want to come back.

I would let go of Saad in a deal for Zajac..probably one of the few Hawk fans that would.

Wild have Granlund and Koivu unless Granlund gets moved to the wing they have their top 6 locked up.

If we knew he would re-sign with us, I would too. If he was a pure rental... don't think I would.

Hasn't Lou proven that he doesn't trade upcoming FA's, regardless of NJ's standings?

Ignoring that, if i knew Zajac would resign i'd offer NJ a 1st + Tuevo. If Zajac is just a rental i'd offer McNeil.

In math only. It took a miracle run just to get close. Only if the Devils find themselves in the tank again will they trade Zajac, which is unlikely.

Your franchise needs Henrique. You can trade Zajac for an equal value piece, but Henrique is the new face of New Jersey. That's what I was trying to get at.
