No from the Devils. We can do better with Merrill if we were to trade him.

Eh.. not too sure I would like this deal as a Devils fan.

Cammalleri at 5M is still pretty pricy.. I also have high hopes for Merrill.

As a Flames fan, I have no idea who this guy is.

Must have pretty excellent potential if Devils fans wouldn't trade him for a top-6 forward.

It's more that I don't think he's worth trading for Cammalleri at his salary. He's also a UFA after next season.


Also not sure if Cammalleri is the top 6 player we need. Would much rather acquire a winger too.

He played wing with the Canadiens.

Cammy is a winger.

I think the Flames would have to eat half of his cap hit, but I'd do it.

If Calamari was making $2.5M and signed for 2 more years I would seriously consider this. But as is, I would pass. Really a big fan of his though.

I would do this, but I understand why Devils fans wouldn't For the fellow that said he would prefer a winger; Cammalleri is a winger, he just filled in at center last year when teh Flames had a rash of injuries at center

Like him as a player but not sure if he fits our style of play.

I have no problem giving up Merrill for Cammalleri. However, I don't like Cammalleri on the Devils, nor do I like his contract that we'd have to take on, both next years salary and the fact that he's a UFA real quick. I'm not sure Cammalleri will fit with what the Devils are trying to do, we need bigger bodies that are strong along the boards. It's where we thrive and play the majority of our game, the forwards in our system have to be very strong along the boards.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Cammalleri isn't the strongest player and is more of a perimeter/wide open type player.

Why would a player that has scored as much as Cammalleri has make only 2.5 million? That would make him drastically underpaid and I don't think that 5 million is too far off market value.

I like Merrill, but there are questions surrounding his character plus he has had a little trouble with injuries. Fantastic prospect, loads of skill, but I think that this is an even trade.

Cammalleri's at his absolute best in the playoffs, which is why you don't see him perform at that high a level with Calgary.
