Chris Drury to the Devils

Clearly they need help in the middle with Zajac done for 8-10 weeks, Drury can take PK time and hes probably Cheap... Thoughts? Fire away.

I know it sounds crazy but how about if we send you back Gomez ?? He had is best moment in nj ... Maybe something like gomez + Leblanc + weber Vs Elias + Palmieri + Salvador (salary dump)

Elias isn't going to get traded, he has a full NMC and he has said before that he isn't going to waive it. I also highly doubt the Devils would trade for Gomez.

Regarding Drury, I'd really rather not bring him in. Let the young centres step up into bigger roles instead of bringing in a mediocre player from outside to try to replace Zajac.

Zajac is going to miss 20-25 games, so I would be surprised if the solution was to trade for Gomez and his 7.3 mil cap hit through 2014.

Right now, it seems like a more palatable idea to either get a cheap vet who could fit in the bottom 6 once Zajac returns and/or see if a guy like Adam Henrique can seize the spot.

I agree with the Elias part , but would not mind Drury for 1m/1y.
Would not want or expect him to take Zajac's spot / minutes but would slot in the #3c roll decently. Drury could PK , and have Elias and JJ(or Zubs) as #1 and #2. Elias is getting kind of long in the tooth and do not really want him playing #1c minutes + PK + PP.

I do not know how pumped I am having Elias ( a natural winger) playing #1c and having JJ Henrique as our #2 and #3?????
JJ has like 20 games experience as a C in the NHL while Henrique has 0 and I believe he was used on the wing even in the AHL.

I assume Zubs would be moved to center?

So more or less we currently have 1 natural center for our top 3 lines , and he has 20 games of NHL experience....

Wellwood or Drury? Neither sounds great but out of the two , which one would be prefered? Almost like asking if you would rather get kicked in the junk or slam a finger in a door.

I guess I will go with Drury for leadership and PK ability???

Drury is an option. Knowing Lou he will probably try to bring back Madden on a one year deal.

Given this news they need at least someone who can take key faceoffs and kill penalties.

Dammit Nylander would have been worth a look if Cryers wouldn't have signed him to tryout contract.

Anyone have a link for UFA centers remaining?

How about....Sergei Brylin lol

I thought Drury was likely to retire. If the Devils don't have anyone better than Drury in the minors, then they have bigger problems than I thought.

With Zajac out Henrique will likely get the 3rd line center spot in camp with Steckel on the 4th.

Drury is a Lou type player to the T but who know's if he'll even be able to play before x-mas.

Could be a good signing, he could fill in the #1 center spot once Zajac comes back.

If he wasn't hurt and he could be signed cheap I'd take him over Steckel easily.

But like I said in my post... the part you obviously ignored who knows if he can even play.

I would say sign neither and just choose between getting kicked in the junk or slamming your finger in the door. It'd be less painful then having one of these guys on your team.

Seriously, signing Jay Pandolfo is a better idea.
