Only if NJD is allowed to talk to Vanek first about re-signing him.

He has kept a team that has no goal scoring threats competitive and within striking distance of a playoff spot. His system was a huge reason we made it to the finals. I'm not hopping on the Deboer hate bandwaggon like 75% of you guys.

So year praying for Paul Stastny.

Will end up disappointed over getting Cammy.

Or even more disappointed getting Scott Gomez.

Or marginally disappointed with Brian Gionta.

I kind of think Grabner would be such an amazing fit on this team. I'd love to see him and Henrique on a PK together.
please take him from us, then.

With Schneider, there's no reason not to trade a guy like Kinkaid. Unless you feel Schneider will test the market.

I'd be pretty floored if Kinkaid were somehow a dealbreaker for the Devils if they decide to be buyers.

Completely agree with this statement. It's shocking that so many Devils fans blame DeBoer for the team's struggles when in reality he has been the one keeping them afloat.

Anyway, I also agree that Grabner would be an ideal pickup for this team. He adds a dimension this team desperately needs and he isn't purely a rental for a team on the bubble.

I don't know a ton about the NJD farm, but is this really a team you want to move rebuilding pieces to try and go for a Cup run? Or is this Lou terrified that he may've blown a lottery pick and willing to spend more assets just to avoid that? Because between notvtrading your number 29 pick, and buying with an aging team, this is starting to look like Sather and Milbury becoming Voltron.

We are in absolutely no position to sell assets. no first this year and a defense pool we have been building for 4-5 years. if we could sell off and start building up the offense pool and make some smart signings we could be good to go in a couple years. but Lou would rather buy buy buy on old players and nuke the assets I guess

I think it would be a monumental mistake for you guys to move your 2015 first round pick. No offense but I see your team taking a step backwards if anything next year.

Don't think they trade next years first or any of the young D. I can see some of the younger guys getting moved along with maybe Volchenkov or Zidlicky and late picks. I don't think Lou will be making crazy moves.
