All trade deadline talks & rumours

610 posts in this topic

For the description above they got tons more than what they should have.   Not having Thornton or Marleau to set him up and the fact he will probably hit the UFA market, leaves this a steal for SJ.

 

Second round picks are only as good as your scouting allows.   Sharks seem to be pretty good at drafting value.

I'm disapointed in the Clowe return. I expected more. As Tri says earlier 2nd round picks aren't worth that much. The trade was clearly about dumping a player only.

Clowe scouting report: Takes stupid penalties. Hes pressing as a UFA and is not meshing with the team. He's also been very unlucky as he has no goals despite near 50 shots. I wouldn't be surprised to see him suddenly become effective in NY but he'll never recreate his lofty point totals from 2 or 3 years ago. Think Brandon Prust.

 

Getting what sounds like 2 2nds and a 3rd is pretty good, though.  I mean, the guy hasn't scored this year, hard to think he's going to get a 1st.  I also think his best days are behind him.

what makes it better as a devils fan is there's talk that the framework for an extension is there for clowe but they need to move $ out for next year to afford him.

My understanding is the 2014 2nd is conditional on him signing.  Also I do like that it's Florida's 2013 3rd round pick.

 

I don't like trading somewhat effective forwards for picks in the middle of a playoff push.  Also I don't like it for the Sharks who are built around 3 players that won't be around much longer.  Regardless the Sharks do need to stock up on prospects, and the value's fine.  But I had stars in my eyes after seeing what Murray and Handzus went for.  Also the ridiculous Couturier rumors were fun to think about.  My guess is Niewendyk undercut the market with his Jagr deal, and by that point it was just time to take the best offer.

Clowe for the Rangers is going to be purely a rental. The Rangers brought him in due to how good he is in the playoffs and assuming the Rangers make the playoffs this could be a deal that works out for them. You know...considering they need the depth in the worst way. However if NYR signs Clowe to that massive extension that he is looking for then I wouldn't be shocked if Sather's job suddenly becomes in jeopardy.

 

Of course I would love that to happen from a fan's perspective.

burmistrov is really on the block apparently... i'd really inquiry about him if im Lou... He's young and a 8th pick overall and he's a good playmaker and scorer.

 

he's not having a good season but he may be part of one of those hockey trade switching players in need of a change of scenery 

 

just for fun.. a straight swap Burmistrov for Clarkson would you do it?

For Clarkson? LOLNO. But I'd love to have Burmistrov. I am not sure where he would fit given our depth at center...I know PDB isn't that fond of breaking up CBGB's chemistry (even though many aren't fond of Gionta) but Burmy would be a fantastic pickup. I feel he could be had for cheap and it'd be a Lokti esque move. The potential with that kid is amazing.

The return with Clarkson would be pretty substantial. More so then just a player who has played on the Jets' fourth line. (Although with the potential to be a 20 goal scorer.) This is undervaluing Clarkson in my opinion.

He's still young and has a ton of potential. You're probably not getting a better prospect than him. And let's not forget, Clarkson's been absolutely awful lately

This has to be the worst trade deadline day in years

The Devils aren't getting Burmistrov.  I'd be in favor of making a move if we didn't already have his clone in Loktionov.

 

I don't think people around here realize that Clarkson is still on pace for 27 goals and would be our top scorer if the season ended today.

Not true...I just traded half of my sandwich for my co-worker's Yoo-Hoo.

 

What a steal!

I've been trying to hammer that into people's heads, but all they see is Clarky hate due to him being forced into a situation in which he's over his head in terms of the players he now has to compete against on the ice.

I want Jason Pominville. Even though I fully believe the Devils will do nothing today. If we make one move I want him.

@RealKyper Keep an eye on #Devils Uncle Lou. Apparently he got his 1st round pick to dangle and he wants a scoring winger.

Kypreos probably doesn't realize NJ has to give up a first this year or next

Kypreos has his head up his ass. Why would Lou trade his 1st especially since the draft is in NJ this year?

@TGfireandice

The only player I don't see on ice for Devils is Marek Zidlicky. Potential UFA. Has no-trade clause.

Would love to get a Murray-esque return for Zids
