Devils sale

Devils just aren't showing any life after a good start. Hedberg has been bad and Marty is still atleast a couple of games away from returning.

As we near the deadline/2nd half of the season what would you offer up for some of the players. I don't see how they will compete for a spot in the playoffs with the current lineup and a trade won't fix the team either.

Guys like Clarkson, Greene, Fayne, Ponikarovsky, etc. can still be incredibly useful for a team looking to make a deep run though.

Untouchable:
Marty
Kovalchuk
Henrique
Loktionov
Larsson
Elias

Any takers? Devils are a mess right now.

Example. This will never happen, but lets say the Devils are in on Corey Perry, or some big name guy, I wouldnt heistate to move him. He isnt untouchable to me, but he is pretty close

Not a fan of either team, but this could possibly work out:

To

Zubrus

To
Raymond
2nd

NJ gets a speedy winger for the top line and Vancouver adds size and grit to top 6 or Zubrus shifts to C for their 3rd line.

Maybe Greene/Fayne but if the Devils can get something decent back for Zajac while unloading his contract (I wasn't hating it when he signed but he is in more than just a slump now).

For the right deal he is available no doubt but someone being young, a forward, and with some upside would have to be coming back.

With the way Raymond has been playing this season, hell no. It's not even like Zubrus is good at faceoffs, so it doesn't help us at all.

I would be in on Fayne, no matter how steep the price is. Keeping it realistic though.

Seems kinda ridiculous that Loktionov would be seen as untouchable after nine games

What about something around Evander Kane and Zajac?

Zajac + Urbom for Kane?

We sorely lack young players with top-6 talent.

Are you serious ??? We need to add onto Zajac/Urbom to get Kane

Also Clarkson has been god awful the last 13 games. I do not want to give him anywhere near 5 million

Pretty sure if the devils get a 2nd for the ladder 2 the devils would deal. I just don't see fringe top 4 defenders being untouchable.

I'd add. I'd even do Zajac + Fayne or Greene + pick.

For next year...

Kane-Henrique-Kovy
Elias-Loktionov-Boucher/Zubs
Matteau-Josefson?-Clarkson
Gionta-Carter-Bernier

Greene/Fayne-Larsson
Volch-Urbom
Gelinas-Burlon
Sverson

Can't be any worse than what we got now though we could probably use another vet on d (not named Talliner who I believe they will buyout this summer).

Well he certainly won't be traded this early into his contract. Not while Lou is running this team.

Before other Devils fans start going off the deep end, the only guys we might trade are:

Zidlicky, Tallinder or Volchenkov, Zubrus, and Ponikarovski.

I don't foresee Lou dealing Elias or Clarkson, I'd think he'd want to hold onto both with a very solid chance of resigning.

The Devils would solely want to add forwards or forward prospects, preferably those with some offensive upside. He's not going to toy with the core of this team, the core being:

Zajac, Kovalchuk, Henrique, Loktionov, Clarkson/Elias (most likely), Greene, Larsson, Fayne.

To me, everyone else would be available for the right deal, but guys like Carter, Gionta, Bernier, Salvador, Harrold hold more value to us that they'd get on the trade market, so they are likely to return.

Holy crap....

I can't laugh enough at this. No way in hell will you see Gelinas, Urbom, and Burlon all become NHL regulars in the same year. That and Severson isn't even likely to turn pro next year.

Boucher will most likely need seasoning but there's no way we'd get Evander Kane anyways.

I hope we see at least 2 of Gelinas, Urbom, and Burlon getting regular playing time next year. After next year Merrill (maybe a year in Albany) could be ready and by then Severson could be ready too. Plus there's Scarlett.

But like I said I also think we need one more vet back there to help ease two of them in. (edit: forgot about Salvador)

revised defense:

Greene/Fayne-Larsson
Volchenkov-Urbom
Salvador-Gelinas
Burlon

And I had Boucher and Zubs splitting 2nd line minutes because I know Boucher probably won't get much playing time.

Wasn't that bad.

What? If we have to add onto Zajac/Urbom to get Kane then I want no part of that unwarranted overpayment.

Zajac/urbom is an incredible underpayment
