Mike Green is RFA after this year and his current cap hit is 5.25 mill, ee seems to be having a bad year with the Caps and I think he could solidify the blue line. What are your thoughts on Mike Green? Would Caps be willing to part with him? And would do you guys think he would cost the Devils?

Not sure he ever fits in with this Devils team's dynamics. Lou wouldn't approve.

we would have to overpay, and the caps would want us to over over (over) pay.

i dont want no part of green. there are tons of other options.

Green has been hurt most of the year and just came back from sports hernia surgery. I don't believe he's going anywhere for that reason and the fact that when healthy, he can be the Caps best defenseman. To me it's much more likely that the Caps will move Dennis Wideman(UFA after the season) if they continue their slide going into the trade deadline next week

Yeah, and Wideman probably won't happen either. I was thinking the Devils should go after him during all the Ryan Suter talk that was going on earlier in the season. Unfortunately for us, he's turning out to have a monster year (Wideman), so he will probably be getting paid a lot of money, which the Devils may not have. Wideman's one of my favorite players though and there's almost no one else I'd rather see the team sign...well, other than Parise of course.

But, after all, NJ is in 4th in the east, definitely has a bright future, and has experienced lots of injuries this year. Maybe he'll be open to coming to play in New Jersey. We can always dream, right?

Well, if it takes any longer for him to be traded and other teams clearly remove themselves from the race for him his value will lessen. Now that Philly made a move with Kubina they are not going to be as desperate either.

both nash and howson have talked openly about how "they're getting closer" - its been wildly reported what teams are involved and what they're offering. i've never seen something so public IN season.

nash doesn't need to fetch a great return, he's on a horrible contract until the end of time. there's just not going to be that many teams who are going to go after him.

Erik Johnson is going to be a RFA. Since we are talking RFA defensemen (Mike Green) why not bring him into the picture? I doubt the Devils would ever sign him or pursue him but I doubt they would Green either. Lol.

What about Cory Sarich? He'll be a UFA next year and had a pretty good year last year - not a "premier" defenseman but I think he'd be a nice piece.

McKenzie said to keep an eye on the Devils. He mentioned Hemsky's name which I thought was odd, considering forward isn't an extreme need, although if Zajac is out and concern is there, adding a playmaker might make sense.

McKenzie mentioned that the feeling with the Devils is that the East is wide open this year as it's been in a few years and there's a mentality to go for it considering all the uncertainty with ownership, finances, Parise, Brodeur, etc.

too many fans in columbus do not think this way. he is the face of that franchise and his ultimate departure will really be a black mark on that team. at this point, i think they best they're going to get is Jack Johnson, a young forward like Loktionov and their #1 pick. not really a great haul at all.
