Logically, the only thing you can do is to turn into a seller and trade Clarkson to a playoffs contender for a pick and you'll keep your fingers crossed it's not going to be a bust the day he'll be ready to enter the league... Probably not before year 2015.

I think it's a terrible terrible mistake to trade Clarkson. He is not even 30 yet, get him back where he belongs, on the 3rd line, he's just in over his head against top 6 competition. He's struggling because he's far from the most versatile forward out there but without him we'll need more than ever what he's already bringing to the table: shots and goals. Both are hands down our biggest issues, the bottom of the NHL. Hell, it's Clarkson that is still the Devils goal scoring leader today !

What Lou must do on the other hand, is to improve the team with signing a legit top 6 UFA during the off-season. He's got to sign someone with some offensive upside, period.

For the rest of the season, I liked Kostitsyn for a 4th rounder though. Trotz has been coaching him for 3 seasons now so people should stop believing those who say he's not a capable 2 way player. Very skilled too. Lacks of consistency though, but more upside than a Dags for example, SK can handle top 6 minutes.

Why stop at Clarkson? Trade all pending UFA if that's the thinking if some are going with.

Does anyone think the Devils can draft a similar player or better that can play next season?

In case you were wondering, Elias, who has a no move, said today he hasn't been asked to submit lists of teams or anything like that.

Good. Never leave Patty, ever. You play until you are 90

I'm loving it because it's even beyond honesty, it's full of sarcasm. Patty is going to retire as a Devil, no doubt.

Same with Zids FYI. So he is not going to be moved either. Something TG agrees with apparently.

Patty said the only list he made was to eat Broccoli today.

I don't know that anyone was really wondering that, but Elias said today that the only list he had today started with broccoli.

Which im guessing is the groceries list

I think the only way Elias would leave is if he asked to, I highly doubt Lou would ever ask Patty to.

There were a few on here last night shouting to trade Patty. No where near as loud as the trade clarkson group right now, but generally the stuff on Twitter is like 10 times as bad as anything on here so he might of been getting lots of trade Patty tweets by morons.
