The Los Angeles Kings and New Jersey Devils are believed to have engaged in recent trade discussions, prompting each team to dispatch its scouting staff to watch the other club.It has been widely reported that the Devils have an interest in Kings goalie Jonathan Bernier, however sources close to the Kings told TFP the team is not interested in moving him, at this point, barring a substantial offer.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

I doubt anything substantial comes out of this.

I read this yesterday, and it may as well have read 'Kings, Devils may make trade, or may not do so.'

McGuire did mention that the Kings people were at last night's game, so at least that part of it is true. As for Kings I'd be interested in, I wouldn't mind Justin Williams, but I can't really see a fit in a deal here.

TFP is worse than Єklund (2.3% accurate).

This same basic rumor has been going on since the offseason, right?

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

if it is at all true they're looking for Bernier, then this is gonna dig up the "Marty will be traded" BS. And why would Lou (in his right mind) think of letting go of Moose? He's been awesome for us.

We don't need a goalie this year, or maybe next. We need a defenseman.

Since Tedenby was a scratch for the game Kings' scouts flew out for, should we assume he isn't on the block?

This, if it goes through, is going to cost us an arm and a leg I feel.

I don't see NJ making any moves at this time. The team is playing relatively well all things considered, and Zajac is likely to be back within the next month. However, if we can't re-sign Parise by the trade deadline, then I could see us making a deal with LA for Bernier, Voyunov, or both coming back our way in exchange for the captain.

Holding on to Zach though HAS to be Lou's #1 priority, any team would LOVE him (and we can't allow the Rangers or Flyers to get their paws on him!)

Last night in the pregame one idiot said that he sees Zach going to Pittsburgh....could you imagine? I would just stop watching the NHL all together at that point. Parise, Crosby and Malkin. fvck that noise.

Yeah the talking heads on VS during the pregame almost unanimously proclaimed Parise was gone at the end of the season. It's like they love taunting Devils fans.

Єklund (2.3% accurate):

Devils and Kings?

The teams have been talking, but I get the impression this deal is a deal that is down the line and contingent on how each team does...according to one source, "The Kings have huge interest in Parise, but nothing will happen until the deadline approaches and the asking price would be a goalie and a top 6 forward."

We need help in a lot of positions, but G is prob 2nd to least most pressing as we have Kinkaid and co. working their way up who look pretty good.

it would make no sense to name parise captain and then trade him. right now it looks like the devils will be within striking distance of the playoffs, so i think a parise trade is very unlikely.

yeah, but he's UFA at the end of the season, we have to keep him from going somewhere else. Plenty of teams will be throwing money at him, Lou has to make him a Godfather-style deal to keep his thoughts here

If hes going to go at the end of the season then we should get something in return for him rather then letting him just walk. We all know that we arent going to be the highest bidder for Zach, itll come down to whether or not the money will talk or if he really is happy here and pulls an Elias.
