True, but we do need forwards and we could slide Henrique to wing

If you're going to deal with Edmonton I would go for Sam Gagner.

He's not talking about dealing, talking about who might be available via FA due to the amnesty buyouts and Horcoff was mentioned as a possibility on Puck Daddy earlier today or last night.

I get that this is a buyout thread, but I'm just talking about bringing anyone in from Edmonton, trade or buyout.

Got ya. Though I have a feeling Gagner isn't getting bought out on a one year deal, lol. I really like the thought of Hossa coming to NJ, but surely that's nothing more than a pipedream. I think if we can pick up anything viable as a top 6 RW, it'll help significantly.

I assume the top 6 is gonna look like this:

Kovy-Zajac-Zubrus
Elias-Henrique-Butler

I don't mind Zubs in the top 6, but I don't like the thought of him as a first line guy since he's not gonna hit more than 40-45 points and I definitely don't like counting on an unproven young player like Butler to be someone who can contribute well and regularly. Though I guess the two of them could be swapped at any point without much issue, I just cringe at our two top RWs being Zubs and Butler or possibly Clarky.

I hear that! Edmonton and New Jersey are a match made in heaven this offseason, as far as trade pieces are concerned.. I think we have a few disposable pieces they could use in exchange for a good forward or two. Love their roster!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but each team now has 2 amnesty buyouts, right? Is it 1 before this season and 1 before next season? Or are they both for before next season? Thanks.

What I heard is that it's this upcoming summer and next summer. A team can use them at different times or at the same time.
