any chance we can add multi-quote on the next board update, DM? it's a great feature.

After 60 seconds you will get all new posts for each quote.

Florida is going to look for Parise +, Paul Martin +, or all our good young farm players.

Petr Vrana, Nicklas Bergfors, Travis Zajac, Johnny Oduya, Matt Corrente, Brian Gionta and Alexander Vasyunov are the players NJ is no doubt offering in some sort of package.

I don't see it happening either. I think the roster we have now will be our opening day roster.

Agreed! Get it done Lou!

Devils do have some players here that can be traded for Bouwmeester. I just have a feeling the Devils will get him. :pray:

NO!!! SD PICKED THE DEVS TO LAND HIM! IT'LL NEVER HAPPEN!! :lol:

Asking price for Bouwmeester is Parise straight up or some package like Zajac + Gionta + Corrente + 1st.

Some of the proposals in this thread are laughable.

Yeah I know. The Devils would NEVER trade Parise, who would think that :rofl: and wouldn't give up that much for a player.

I guess 24-year old, all-around #1 defensemen grow on trees these days.

You are making him sound like God. I would not trade Parise for Bouwmeester, thats way out of the question. This team needs offense more than defense right now, and selling Parise (and/or more) for Bouwmeester is a joke.

Not sure how Zajac, coming off a 34 point season, and Gionta, a UFA to be, plus a prospect and a pick qualifies as the "whole team", but whatever.

I guess you guys are quite ignorant of how good Bouwmeester really is. He's 6'4", one of the best skaters in the league, a rock in his own end, and a good powerplay quarterback. I can't think of one defenseman in the league that combines his size, skating ability, and two-way prowess. Pronger, but no one else really. Jay-Bo is already a top 15 defenseman in the NHL, and will be top 5 within a couple years time. Trading for him would be a tremendous boon to the franchise.

Parise had 33 goals last year, Bouwmeester 15. Also consider that Bouwmeester's puck-moving ability and powerplay skills will lead to an increase in goals for a number of Devils forwards. Additionally, he'd take pressure off of players like Paul Martin and Johnny Oduya, allowing them to harness their offensive skills to a greater degree. So yeah, not really seeing how it would be a joke.

I guess expecting objectivity from some of the posters here is a bit too much.

I would agree with Voros Parise for Bouwmeester is a fair deal for both sides. Lou would look to get the deal done without giving up Parise and would probably go with Gio Zajac and a prospect if possible.

Gio and Zajac i could care less about if we dealt in a big package including some prospects like Corrente and draft pick(s).. no PArise though

The Devils wouldn't deal Parise for JBO most likely but that is probably a fair deal in terms of value.

Are you kidding me????

That would be pure stupidity. That would be a pure Garth Snow type of move. Lou would never be that silly.

Don't overrate Bouwmeester.

If we traded Voros and Parise for Bouwmeester I would seriously cry. That would be by far the worst trade in Devils history.

or overrate Parise. Which player would get more if both were made unrestricted free agents today? It would be JBO by 15% or so most likely. They're both great young players but there are more great young forwards in the league then great young defenseman.

Voros is a Ranger and he isn't very good anyway so even if he was a Devil including him in any deal wouldn't matter.

Send them Gionta, Zajac (or Corrente) and a #1 and get it done.

This string has gotten absolutely ridiculous. It's absurd to think Florida would be looking for Parise and/or Martin, both under contract beyond this season, our top forward and our top D, for JBO, likely under contract for this season only. Florida will attempt to cut their losses, and they'll take the best deal (IF they can't sign JBO long term), but that deal won't be for a team's best player. Forget that notion.

Florida may want picks or young players, but come on people, Parise??? He's our only 30 goal scorer and will likely develop into an 80-point guy.

I can imaging them inquiring about Zajac (since he had an off-year), Gionta (since he's not terribly expensive for a potential first line guy at 4m and NJ could conceivably live without him), Oduya (if they think he will continue to develop), Corrente, Bergfors, 1st and 2nd round draft picks, etc.

Otherwise, they're not going to ask for Brodeur, Parise, Martin, so on and so forth, unless their GM is out of his gord and entirely out of touch with his own situation.

JBO can't walk on water, but he is a rare breed, and I really think it would be a great acquisition, and as I said yesterday, would gladly give up farm prospects, and probably even a 1st round pick to get him (since our picks are usually low first round anyway, and JBO is now a bona fide top-pair guy, and is only 24 or 25 yrs old).

But please, these Parise comments are completely off the mark. That would never, ever happen.

Why on earth would we ever get rid of one of our top scorers when goals are NOT coming easy nowadays? Sure he's a great D-man, but c'mon now.
