He must be talking about Bozak's infinite potential.

With the Devils looking to be a good bet to miss the playoffs, there is no way they trade a 25 year old borderline #1 center for a 32 year old rental, even if the player is as talented as Kaberle.

upgrade in one area, while downgrading in another.....that happens all the time...and is what will happen if the leafs made this deal; it would hurt losing a great puck-mover, but gaining a center at the same time.

Not saying that the deal is completely fair for both sides; but there is logic.
to downgrade in one area only makes sense if it's a teams strength, and anyone with a little hockey IQ knows that C is not a position of strength for the Devils, so (I know it wasn't your proposal) to propose that NJ move their current 1st line center would only happen if an upgrade was coming the other way. If it was a NJ proposal for a LW, then yes, downgrade a LW for an upgrade somewhere else makes sense. The OP was trying to upgrade the Leafs with zero thought about the impact on the Devils. That's why they would want an upgrade in a deal for Zajac. Most trades need to meet the needs of BOTH teams, not just the OP's favorite team

Didn't Bettman take away N.J 2011 1st and 3rd already?

Edit: it's a 1st in one of the next four drafts, NJ choice.

The Leafs say no big time to this non-sense

Rolston I can understand the guy is all aces but Zajac c'mon, he has only prospered by playing with guys like Lags, Parise and Kovalchuk........jeez how many points do you think the Boz will collect playing with top flight talent

still trying to help I see, thanks

doesn't matter who gets traded to whom, it's HF and they'll be a big dogpile on anybody and everybody no matter what they type or who they type it to

the trade is unrealistic to say the least, for one Zajac still has a very good contract for two years after this and I don't think Lou would be moving him before he moves other contracts if it comes down to it.

threads like this which are only started in the hopes of somehow flaming Leafs fans are plain and simply put dumb
