Tedenby for Tarasenko straight up!

Actually that's too much. Hoeffel for Tarasenko! Add in a 88th round draft pick too.

Not so much that it's what he's worth, but to trade anymore than that from a Devils standpoint is foolish.

No, that IS what he's worth.

Before the lockout you could make the case that Tarasenko was the best hockey player in the world not in the NHL.

The offensive gap between Kovalchuk and Toews isn't very big. It's probable, over the next five years, that Toews will outproduce Kovy.

And I made that comparison to point out that saying things like "he's got fire", "is a warrior", etc., is pretty useless when comparing two players.
Toews is basically the same player as Datsyuk, but 10 years younger.

Start with Zajac, replace his hands and legs with Kovalchuk's....and you get Jonathan Toews.

This is actually a pretty solid comparison... which means he`s nothing like Datsyuk. 10 years before, now, or ever, so derp.

Why do we keep continuing this ridiculous conversation? Where am I? Oh wait. Nevermind.

Okay, Toews is easily the most overrated guy on HFboards.

Toews is like Toews. I never understand why people feel the need to compare two different players who are obviously not the same.

Toews works well for the Hawks in the role they have him playing. He's an excellent captain, and he's one of the best two-way players in the league.

I wouldn't say no to him if we could somehow acquire him on the cheap, but since we can't, I'll say that we don't need him for either of those roles, because we have adequate leadership, and because damn near everybody on the Devils plays at least passable defence.

I don't think he had any eligibility left. My guess is he doesn't have the money for a new mask yet or is just too attached to it.

Clermont's looks like he has Darth Maul on the side, which is pretty awesome.

I have to say I like Clermont's the best. That being said, why don't they run with the Jersey Devil theme, rather than the traditional demon/devil that is not what the Devils actually represent?

Either they don't know about the origin of the name, or they don't care and think this looks cooler. They might be right.
