here's the thing about conte - and it might be a stupid question - but isn't he more of an amateur talent scout rather than pro scout? is there a discernible difference?

I think LA and Calgary are both possible trading partners to be honest. And I think the the guy was not Conte but the head of pro scouting.

He's the head scout, so I believe he does both. We just only hear about him around draft time.

David Conte taking in #Flames - #Kings..Conte key #Devils decision maker...interesting..

Yeah, this is very interesting for sure. Tri is right, you never really hear about Conte attending games.

The Flames have not much trade bait. I think Burke is going to fleece some desperate team for Mike Cammalleri. It really better not be the Devils.

Cammo? Eh. Seems to me that Lou has created a bad habit over the past couple seasons of acquiring guys who he should have acquired several seasons ago.

Not sure how I feel about cammalleri.. Not unless it's for cheap. I don't want us giving away a prospect for a guy with less points than zubrus

Maybe Reece Scarlett, and even that would be meh.

Wow this is indeed very interesting, I cannot remember a time where Conte was seen scouting a game.

 

I still think Lou will get someone for cheap like a Boyes or Hemsky. I don't see him giving away any of our young D this season.

I'm cool giving up a mid-round pick and one of the defensemen not named Gelinas, Merrill, Greene, or Larsson for Cammalleri. However, if Lou trades any one of those four in a deal where Cammalleri is the centerpiece, I will lose it.

Severson and Santini better be kept out of any Cammalleri deal as well.

Why is everyone assuming the Flames?  I mean, yeah, that'd be the more likely team, but the Kings have got a bit of an overload at RW too with Tanner Pearson, Linden Vey, and Tyler Toffoli.  They've got a ways to go - Pearson isn't waiver eligible for another year, but Toffoli's NHL ready now and Vey is waiver-eligible next year.

Hemksy would be an upgrade over Brunner.  And I like Brunner, but Hemsky is very talented.  His points won't blow you away, but he's been mostly used in a checking role. He's also not bad defensively.  Boyes would be a nice upgrade over Bernier.  If Lou can get Hemsky and Boyes, I'd be happy.

I like Toffoli.  Kings fans are mad at Sutter for not playing him on the first line more.

If we ever even talked trade with Calgary you KNOW Burke would want Matteau or Santini, one of our truculent players :P

Yeah it's serious if Conte is there.

Potentially exciting few days ahead of us!

All kidding aside, if there's a prospect that might be untouchable, I think it's Santini. In part because of circumstances in that he couldn't land another very good NHL player on his own, unlike Larsson. I also really think that Lou believes he'll be the future captain of the team, not to mention that he's really good.

I wouldn't hesitate in giving up either...just not both. You gotta give to get sometimes

For Mike Cammelleri? He isn't good. This is why it is great to be a seller. You'll actually get something decent for him.

 

I have said quite a few teams I don't want the Devils to do a thing, especially for not any UFAs to be.

That's my hope and there's just as much rapport between Lou and Lombardi as there is with Lou and Burke.

To me sending Conte suggests some follow up on a guy the Devils liked in the drafting 0process recently.

That would be horrific. Cammalleri really isn't that good and it seems every team he goes to wants to get rid of him after a year or two.

I love Santinis potential and Matteau is a piece you give up for a cost controlled younger talent who can be here for awhile. Not some scrub rental.

I already mentioned it but i really don't want Cammalleri, he's absolutely not a Devils kind of player. Extremely selfish and can be a cancer in a locker room. He has one hell of a shot and can score in SO sure but still, if we're getting someone id like to see someone that we could at least try to resign next season and i really dont want that guy. I absolutely can't stand the guy.

Bringing Cammalleri in (assuming the price is low...not sure why Calgary thinks a guy who's been a -39 over the last two seasons would fetch a big return) would be a bit like Steve Sullivan Part 2 to me...it would feel like a lukewarm endorsement of this team on Lou's part.  Kind of a "what the hell, maybe he helps" kind of move, but I don't see the current version of Cammalleri really making much of a difference here.  It feels like it'd be adding a new body for the sake of doing so. 

 

Assuming this is what SD is referring to, regarding Cammalleri's past:

I saw a tweet from dreger that said Burke admitted it's unlikely that they re-sign camilleri, so I think that hurts his leverage a bit. I think it really will depend on what other wingers are available. If moulson vanek and gaborik are and the asking price is a first minimum, I'm not sure how camilleri commands a first as well.

Idk I guess what I'm saying is it seems like a buyers market for forwards this year since there are a few guys available...

Both Santini and Matteau are dime a dozen prospects with little offensive upside. But they're also the best movable chips we have considering the sorry state of our prospects in general. If you're going to hang on to them, then there is no trade to be made at the deadline
