This is what I fear as well. Maybe Lou will go all in?

add a top 6 forward and keep playing Schneider, yes he's been that good, and we might make the playoffs

Devils have no 1st, 4th, or 7th this year. They have two 6ths (Florida's via Krys Barch).

Just to keep in mind.

you could put team canada in that system and they would struggle to score just as much. The Devils grind you out and that is playoff hockey.

That is very true

Our system is setup to succeed in the playoffs.

That being said.... I am not opposed to moving a 2015 1st IF and only IF

That player is a top 6 forward tied down to a fairly long term contract and fairly young...

please no rentals. If you're gonna buy, get a long-term impact player. Please.

I want him to buy guys but only if they are top level talent. This team is already filled with mid level guys.

With so many top level D prospects paired with later picks or guys like loktionov or josefson could bring a decent return.

The Devils being buyers will go without saying as long as Lou is GM. This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

If the Canucks are trading away a center why would they want another one who is not as good? I understand Larsson but wouldn't they want something other than Henrique?

Edit: I guess other than Henrique we can offer other forwards (we have wingers), or other defense prospects.

I was simply taking a stab at what it would take from the Devils. To be honest, I don't think they actually have what the Canucks would be looking for.

I also saw a few posts complaining about the high price, and I'm curious to hear what they think Henrique+Larsson could actually land? I should mention I'm an Oiler fan who hates all things Canucks, but Kesler is one of the best 2 way C's in the game. The cost would be high, and there'd be no shortage of offers IF he is on his way out.

Mistake, not as bad as giving up this year's first rounder, but a mistake none the less.

Given they don't have a 1st, and don't have expendable youth / prospects I am curious to see how this will go down.

The teams best players are 35+ I don't see how this makes any sense at all. Seems like Lou is determined to drive this franchise as deep into the ground as high as he had it sailing a decade ago.

Relax with not having a first round pick. Players like Larsson, Gelinas, and Merrill are substitutes for first rounders if we choose to trade them.

I'd be very hesitant about Larsson for Yakupov, let alone both Larsson and Henrique...

Sub in Eberle for Yak?

Eberle >>> Yakupov

I would not trade significant assets for Yakupov

Yak has very good talent. He's just too immature and I would fear him leaving for the KHL like Kovy did to us.
