Tarasenko to NJ

OBVIOUSLY, this won't happen, but based on the other thread in the other section and how he and Kovy are developing great chemistry in the KHL, what would it take?

Everyone is going to say Larsson which is expected, but lets say he's completely untouchable and EVERYONE else is available...who would be going to St. Louis?

Nothing. The only asset NJ has that would be worth Tarasenko is Larsson.

New Jersey doesn't have any very good trading chips so it'll never happen like you said.

The long and short answer is that no player on New Jersey would fetch Tarasenko. That includes Kovalchuk. And before anyone jumps on me, hear me out. Obviously Kovalchuk would return Tarasenko +. However, with Kovalchuk's contract the deal would not work at all. Larsson, as good of a prospect as he is, is a terrible fit. Pietrangelo and Shattenkirk make him redundant. Plus, I don't think Tarasenko is going anywhere, until the Blues know for sure what they have.

If everything else is valuable a Larsson is untouchable, I'd say Kovalchuk.

The Devils don't have the assets. I wouldn't trade him for Larsson either.

I wouldn't trade Tarasenko, even for Larsson.

Not that Larsson isn't fair value or overpayment or anything like that, but Tarasenko fills a huge need.

He's what we've needed for a long time.

NJ has a lot of good defensive prospects, but nothing that will net Tarasenko.

I wouldn't do Larsson, because he's a RHD and we have Petro, Shatty, and Polak.

Kovalchuk would be someone I'd look at, but his contract wouldn't fly here.

Elias would be perfect.....a few years ago.

This trade wouldn't happen.

STL needs star power. Kovy is the only thing on NJD that might interest them, and that's including Larsson.

Hehe, yeah. But I think Devils will ask for Pietrangelo. And even then... And I'm afraid with Blues financial situation Kovy isn't possible for them.

They have plenty of cap room now and in the future. Is it a real money issue?

Said everyone but Larsson was available. Then asked what it would take. That was the answer.

I'm so ******** this could never work. The Blues would be giving away a need for something they already have a surplus of.

Edler for Tarasenko.

Luongo + Booth + Kassian for Kovalchuk.

Problem solved.

And I'll say it one more time for emphasis:

Out of curiosity, what would Vancouvers lines be if this were to go down?

Our defense takes a hit, but who the heck cares when you look at that top 6.

It would take everyone but Larsson...

In all seriousness, NJ is not a viable trading partner, especially after Parise left.
