Wonder if Lou could pull off something like... trading something "meh" or something he knows he'll lose anyway for Burmistrov's rights to Winnipeg ? Big gamble but depending on how low the Jets are on him it might be worth a gamble if they can convince him to be back, i believe he had trouble with the coach (which is gone now) but who knows, change of scenery could  help maybe? not sure how he's doing in the KHL right now

I don't know, but a move is overdue. One or two of these defensemen need to be moved out- easier said than done I know, but something has to give at some point.

I'm not sure how burmistrov would fit on this team right now.

Ottawa specifically came out today and said they're looking to trade young players to improve now. They might have some pieces worth looking into.

ah didn't see that part lol well I guess we can't help them there.

I thought they were having defensive issues, no?

I think they're having all kinds of issues but Murray was quoted saying he wanted scoring/power forward.

my only point was with a guy like burmistrov... lots of talent and skills but the organization might be down on him and might be willing to part with his rights for something cheap. I dont think the devils can get talent through trades without giving up too much

I'd be all for it, he should be cheap but I don't think much will come of it (nor him).

After Kovalchuk, do we really want to "take gambles with KHL players"? I wouldn't go close to that hell hole of a league if I were Lou. I'd like to see him make a move for Shawn Matthias. That dude is a Devils forward to a T

What will it take to get Evander Kane?

They'd want one of the three young defensemen to start. And then probably a Matteau and/or Boucher. In other words- more than Lou is likely to want to give up.

Not saying I'd pay it, but after that Buffalo-NY Islanders trade/debacle, I'd say this is what the market is dictating (right now), and probably why there haven't been any notable trades so far since, blame Garth Snow....

 

 

Larsson, Merrill, 1st rounder 2015

Or

Cory Schneider, conditional 1st rounder 2015 if he re-signs long-term

Or

Larsson, Fayne, Zajac

 

 

Important thing to note is that Kane is locked up til he's 27 on a pretty awesome $5.25m deal, so you're trading for value and you're trading for a great player's prime years and more; I think Kane's trade price is going to be high because of this, Winnipeg has a gold mine if they want to cash out from dealing him.

What about Blake Wheeler?

 

Good question, he's always flown under the radar for me, but he's been having an absolutely stellar year, stellar the last 3 seasons really. Maybe Corey Schneider and a conditional 1st rounder in 2015 if he re-signs, would land Wheeler (or Kane), which I'd be against doing.

 

I really think Garth Snow messed it all up. Every GM with parts to sell must be feeling like they deserve the return that Buffalo got for Vanek's rental, which is why we're at a standstill.

Someone help Im going crazy. My app "the score" tells me Chicago has more points then St. Louis? They are 30-8-1 to for 70 pts?

St. Louis is 31-8-5? For 67 pts?! how?

30 x 2 is 60. Plus the one for over time for 62 points? Where are they getting these extra points I'm confused by this can someone elaborate? Thanks

So what about a deal for Briere?  He could probably be had pretty cheap, I'd imagine.

 

Low-risk, low-reward type deal.

Love it, then MTL could go Volchenkov-Murray as a pairing.

Do not want briere I don't think he is an improvement to what we have (unless Elias is out for the season god forbid), so I wouldn't want to give up assets for him.

Well in my mind it'd have to be one of the excess D we have for him (ie, Volch, Salvador).  Bad contract for bad contract.

 

Plus Briere only has one year left on his deal, whereas Volchenkov has 2..so we could get out of that year potentially.

 

For the record, I'd prefer Salvador go, but I seriously, seriously doubt Lou trades him.
