Zajac to Toronto?

what woud it take for Burkie to pry Zajac from the devils? not saying it wil happen but the fact is the Leafs have the cap space to make a big move and Burkie has all but said that at some point we ca60 point seasons n expect a big move to be made and I have a feeling Zajac is one of his Targets.

Zajac has struggled this year but he does have back to back 60+ point seasons under his belt, he may not be an eliete #1 guy but he would be a big upgarde to our Center ice position.

I can't see Burke not being interested.

What would it take to get the deal done and bring Zajac to Toronto.

This is a tough one to guess because honestly he's a player that has more value to the Devils than he has to other teams right now, the Devils aren't overly deep down the middle of the ice, and he plays a decent 2-way game which is a must in their system.

That said they'd want something of value now.

Leaf fans won't like the answer but my guess would be Schenn or Gunnarson + a goalie prospect.

That's honestly just a guess though. It's a tough call at this point. He definitely won't come cheap though.

Would require a huge overpayment, Zajac has a great contract, is a good two-way player, best buds with Parise and NJ have little centre depth. They're a team in win now mode and Leafs don't have a good enough centre to send back, Devils can't wait for Kadri and don't have a glaring need for a guy like Schenn.

Because the first thing a struggling team needs to do is get rid of their only centre of any significance

A center of equal or greater value.

ie: +70 points and Selke-caliber defensive play.

For the Devils to think about this deal, we would:

A) Have to take back a lot of salary - Rolston (for example)

B) Over-pay incredibly with Top-6 players (Bozak + MacArthur + Gunnarsson)

C) Give up more draft picks

D) Send a goalie prospect that may be able to take the reigns from Brodeur (Gustavsson, Reimer, Scrivens, Rynnas)

E) All of the above...

I'll pass.

There's absolutely no way NJ moves him he's there #1 C and is on a good contract so moving forward he's going to be more important to them than pretty much anything the Leafs would offer (don't see them offering Schenn and it would be Schenn++) unless burke wants to overpay again like the Kessel deal.

Gunner is definitely more available than Schenn...

I'd gladly do Gunnarson+Rynass/Scrivens/Reimer for Zajac+a salary dump or two. Actually, to even out the center position, one of Grabo/Bozak as well(more salary dump gets you Grabo, less salary dump gets you Bozak)

So something along the lines of Gunnarson+Rynass+Grabovski for Zajac+Rolston+Arnott/Langenbrunner(or whoever's not doing their job for you guys)

I'd imagine Kadri or Schenn would need to be included. Zajac is pretty awesome IMO.

I'm pretty sure you are thinking he said valuable. Thats the only way this makes sense...


Anyways, NJ needs Zajac. He is an excellent 2 way center, and it would make absolutely zero sense for them to trade him. I would love to have him on the Leafs, but if NJ traded Zajac, they would be in trouble down the middle.

Toronto needs to explore center options with teams that have depth down the middle, and would need defensemen in return.

Can someone help me out, please.

1) Who's the #2 center for the Devils this year?
2) Who's next years #2 center for the Devils?

If you answered Jason "I'm a 36 year old UFA" Arnott for the first question, you are correct. If you answered Jacob Josefson for the second question, you are also correct.

With that said, who in his right mind would think that Lou would move Zajac to have Arnott as our #1 center NOW and Josefson next year.

A IQ test must be included when people post proposals... Jesus Christ.
