Damn, Mueller too? I know I just said I wanted Wolski, but he's about 4th on the list of UFA forwards I wanted the Devils to take a chance on. Mueller's something else though, he could still really turn out to produce a lot in the future. Aside from Semin, there isn't another UFA I wanted the Devils to sign more than Mueller. Oh well, let's hope that something pans out. I'm not sure what to think of Huselius, but at this point, it's worth the risk, in my opinion.

Getting kind of nervous for this season now. The Devils' options are running out, it seems. I'm starting to think they're either moving Bernier up to another line, or else placing a lot of hope in Tedenby, which is kind of scary. At least we can almost count on a trade.

I hope one day Lou learns how to put a team together as well as a bunch of people of this board can. :rolleyes:

Maybe he didn't sign Mueller or Wolski was because he didn't want them?? Or maybe they didn't want to come here?

I agree with that !

Oh well, Mueller had concussion issues and no one wants to sign players who've had a past history of concussions.


For one year, under Poni's $1.8 million for a 24 year old former first round pick...I'd take that chance.

I honestly think we're not signing anyone and Lou is just gonna make a trade involving Greene or Tallinder for someone like Sam Gagner.


Why do we need another center?

Tallinder for Hemsky on the other hand seems like a much better solution. Again, the Devils need the RW depth and if they do get Hemsky they would have to hope he can stay healthy. Although his health problems aren't nearly as big of an issue as Mueller.

Three possible line combos: (Since without Poni the third line has opened up a hodgepodge of possibilities.)

Kovy-Zajac-Hemsky
Elias-Henrique-Zubrus
Tedenby-Josefson-Clarkson
CBGB

Or perhaps:

Kovy-Zajac-Hemsky
Elias-Henrique-Zubrus
UFA-Josefson-Clarkson
CBGB

Maybe even:
Kovy-Zajac-Hemsky
Elias-Henrique-Zubrus
Sykora-Josefson-Clarkson
CBGB

Pretty sure Gagner can also play right wing, but I agree Hemsky would probably be a better solution, forgot about him.


Not only that but Zajac could easily bounce after next season. I think Lou should make him his best offer as soon as possible. If he doesn't want to sign, trade him. We can't afford to keep losing top talent to free agency for nothing.

Zajac + Greene + Urbom enough for Evander Kane?

I don't think Winnipeg is willing to move Kane, pretty sure they're looking at him to be the future of their franchise, though I would love to him in a Devils uni.


could be rumours but i heard he was unhappy there and wanted out... but yeah... could be a rumour

That may do it for Winnipeg. Its tough to guess. I imagine we'd probably have to throw a pick in with that package. We'd likely get Kane and another guy back.

The UFA market in Left and Right Wingers is starting to look like a wasteland with each signing. I don't know if Lou has any ideas. Eric Fehr is still out there. He could be a decent 3rd liner.

As far as Hemsky goes, you might as well forget about that. Tedenby or Janssen are going to be filling in for him for half the season.

Yeah I was just basing that off of the rumors that Kane wants out of Winnipeg. I should have made that clear in the original post.

Maybe Zajac + Greene + Urbom + 3rd for Kane + Burmistrov, Jim Slater or Tanner Glass (3rd line center replacements when Josefson moves to 2nd).

Damn. I was just looking at Winnipeg's stats from last year. Didn't realize he was gone. No big deal really.

Definitely. But if Lou can't, trade him while there's still value to be had. He should be trying to lock him up asap for that reason.

No chance of Burmistrov in that package. Slater would be a possibility. I dont know if they'd do two fwds though. It would probably be more like Kane and a junk prospect.

Hemsky would be much easier to get than Kane. I could see us getting Hemsky for Greene or Tallinder and a pick, but I imagine other teams would want to try for that too and may turn into a bidding war.
