The Official 2014 Trade Deadline Thread

1,327 posts in this topic

If we can get a guy like Statsny, I'd trade just about anything for him. If only to get that 8th year in his contract. WE don't have certain prospects at center, we get a guy like him, our down the middle of Statsny and Zajac is really strong for the next few years.

Very risky to count on that.

Again why trade a guy like i dont know... Merril + Fayne and a pick or wtv for him and gamble on a season where everything that could go wrong went wrong. 

 

When we could just wait and make him an offer next summer and possibly have him + Merril + Fayne (if he re-sign) and that pick for our future

Not so sure Peter Statsny would necessarily endorse the Devils.  Herb Brooks was pretty harsh towards him in his final year.  (Basically called his one-year, $700,000 deal with the Devils a huge heist.)  Was kind of too bad, re:  Peter and his Devils career...the Nords knew what they were doing when they traded him for Wolanin...his numbers look OK for the Devils because it was still live-puck back then, but he was declining fast, especially compared to what he had been before.   

 

Peter certainly didn't oppose himself to the idea when Talking Red floated it in their interview with him.

What did he say?  I'm not implying that Peter is anti-Devil BTW...more just pointing out that it wasn't all sunshine (though it could've been more of a Statsny-Brooks issue than a Devil-related one).

So if Brodeur wants out, can we trade Anthony too? cause really... fvck off Marty.

 

While the organization has been more than good to Marty and vice versa it's somewhat pissing me off that he's not willing to put some water in his wine now after all of that, Deboer gave him a super long leash that was really not deserved this season, he doesnt seem to appreciate that and im sure he was not feeling bad when cory was rotting on the bench while he was CLEARLY the better goalie.

What did Marty say or do that was so awful?

The more I think about it the more likely I think it is that Larsson is traded.  Why on earth is Merril up in the big leagues over him?

 

Larsson for Statsney?

Marty wants to play, what's the problem there?

Єklund (2.3% accurate) is reporting the Devils are one of the teams interested in Alex Edler.

 

Making entirely no sense at all.

@tshold: Martin Brodeur might be on the move out of New Jersey. His gear is no longer in the Devils locker room. #Devils #TradeCentre

Only if there's an extension already in place.  It's way too risky to give up a lot for what could be a rental.

I saw this too.  I don't know how reliable this is.  I would think not very since TG or especially Chere would have reported it.

Oh agreed, for sure.

Now about Brodeur to Minnesota, does Heatley in a one for one swap make sense? I'm not in the office or I'd look up his contract status.

Heatley isn't Heatley anymore (46 points in his last 97 GP).  I know the same could be said of Brodeur, but Heatley has been steadily declining since '09-'10.  This season and last have been awful.  I think I'd rather have a draft pick over Heatley.

I just don't like how he can't keep his mouth shut, that he's doing it on purpose or the media is tweaking/nitpicking what he says to make it look worst. Him keeping on giving away all those quotes about him willing to go cause he's not 100% happy is still putting pressure on DeBoer/team saying "well if i dont play more i want out", thats pretty selfish to me and got to be awkward in the locker room at times.

 

There's nothing wrong with saying that you don't want to talk about the situation, bunch of players is doing it. 

 

Cory has handled his UNFAIR "not playing time" like a total professional with his quotes. Marty has handled his FAIR not playing time like a whinny bitch

Tweet came out around 1am, so it's not hard to believe that Lou finished a deal (or basically has one in place) after last night's game and the staff waited until after all players and personnel were gone to move his stuff out. Lou wouldn't want to call much attention to this until it can be announced. Just sayin... Let's keep an eye on it

I think it is legit. Seeing how Elias was after the Isles game and how Greene got the puck for Marty.

I'm more interested in whether Lou has anything else up his sleeves.

This is so absurdly off-base and this is you trying to play amateur psychologist and attempting to see what you want to see.  Marty has barely said ANYTHING about his situation, other than when he's been asked about it, and even then, his quotes haven't been anything awful.  He's been pretty honest without ripping anyone or complaining or making his situation a distraction.

Cory complained too and talked about his frustration at being back in the same situation as with Vancouver earlier in the season.  By your standards, he should be labeled a whiny bitch then as well. 

 

Marty is constantly hounded by Chere, et al, about this because those idiots have nothing else to write about.  He has never ducked the media and always answered questions.  Why should he stop now?  And do you really think the players within the room don't realize without his quotes to the media that Marty wants to play more and is frustrated by the situation?  

 

At this point, I just hope Marty gets traded soon so I can stop listening to the constant bashing of anything and everything he does and says.

It's Devils hockey...there's nothing entertaining about it!  You should know that by now.

This... the guy can't go to the bathroom without Chere dunking his head in the bowl to see if there's any hint at a trade in there.
