Devils acquire Steve Sullivan

160 posts in this topic

This a great depth trade..new jersey has plenty of offense when healthy. They are one of the beat defensive teams

Lou just said STFU to everyone who was whining about another year with no moves. Regardless of how small.

What's the over/under on him getting injured this season?

 

Break out the prune juice and advanced directive forms!

Lou really failed us this deadline...

 

Here is to hoping we can sneak in the playoffs...

Lou could have gotten a better player for a 7th round pick. IMO Redden and Jokinen are both more valuable and they went for a 7th rounder.

Since Lou has a hard-on for aging ex-Devils, why not get Mogilny out of retirement?  It worked out pretty well the last time he tried it, lol

Yeah, what we need now is Wade Redden.   We don't have enough of that.    Jokinen was given away for free because he has money due him.

yes, and he has 1 goal in the 29 games that have since followed

 

In short...he may be finished

I like Stevie but boy this reminds me so much of the second Richer trade, where we gave up a seventh for another washed-up ex-Devil.  Not that a seventh really matters, but you get what you pay for most of the time.

Who did you want, and for what?  I just don't think there was much Lou really should've or could've done here.  I would've been fine with nothing, but this move won't make much difference either way.

Anything that made me believe you were trying to help us out for another push before Marty hangs em up...

 

We may only have a couple more dances with #30 before he is gone forever...we should be trying to win every season, PERIOD.

 

Does that mean I want huge names every go around?!?  Of course not, but something more impactful than Sullivan....

I didn't say get Redden, I would have liked to get Jokinen, but I think they are two examples of how much a 7th can return. When I read we got Steve Sullivan I seriously thought he retired. Guy has virtually disappeared in the past few seasons.

Well, he has to pass a physical so don't get too excited just yet.

 

Unless he was in a wheelchair last night during his nine minutes of icetime he'll pass a physical lol

Brodeur (and goaltending in general) is the biggest thing keeping this team from winning.  The idea that the Devils should sell out their future so Marty and his .905 SV% can get one last shot at the Cup is ridiculous.  We still haven't seen the final cost for Pominville but it looks awfully expensive.

Going in on Bishop would have been a decent decision.

Jokinen passed through waivers recebtly so the whole league of GMs, right or wrong, question his value.

Redden is similar.

I don't see any reason to think a 7th should return more than a depth move or taking on a poor salary to play ratio based on those values.

Are we officially the oldest team in the league now? We have like 1 first/second line, 2 third lines and one 4th line. Yay!

Sorry but we really shouldn't piss the future down the toilet just so Marty can add another cup to his resume.

 

Marty is a shoe-in for the Hall so no worries about that.
