I suggested this on another thread, but there is legit concern that Kovy will burn out in the playoffs if his minutes go THAT high. I still think it's worth a shot, but I can see why DeBo and Lou may not agree.


Yeah we're lucky that Kovy is capable of playing 25+ a night no problem...but when you start pushing it into the 30's that's when it becomes problematic. Kovy had three 30+ games in October and missed two weeks shortly after that. Since then I think he's only had one or two.

Wait..theres a team out there that wants to take Foster off our hands via trade? :pray: That just seems too easy. I'd be a little bummed to lose Tao though. I know he gets hated on a lot but I think he can be solid for the Devils sooner than later.

Foster on the PP is worth having him in the lineup. And, he's only a -7 at even strength. Just keep him away from the PK and when the 4th line is out and there's no issues really.

i hate the idea of giving up tao....but foster and a 3rd def yes consider zidlicky is an upgrade to foster and the 3rd has about a 1 in 50 id guess of being anything meaningful

tao looks ok lately and to lose him on this type of chance long playoff run could be such a waste

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

This is called a Stanley Cup run trade. Oh and be assured it's going to be a least a draft pick and a young d-man going over there.

Let's be clear here guys: if we get Zidlicky and Foster plays one more minute the rest of the season, barring injury, then the trade makes no sense. This is an "oooohhhh Foster sucks" trade.

Alright honestly I'd rather dish Tai than Foster. Fosters sh!t power is something in itself and hes been effective for us. I like Tao, but id be lying I I said I think his potential points to him being a better player than Foster

He already is better than Foster. Anyways Nashville would be stupid to take Foster and a pick for Marek and that's it.

ben00rs: Zidlicky is 35, has a year left on his contract, and is a healthy scratch in Minnesota while Minnesota slides down to the bottom of the standings, and everyone knows he wants out. If the Devils give up anyone decent for him, it's a huge mistake. If anyone gives up anything decent for him, it's a huge mistake.

But would you not agree that he would be an upgrade from Foster no matter what? If you're Nashville do you trade him for Foster and pick?

One thing I know for sure though is that if we give up a Taormina for him, I don't know what the hell Lou would be thinking. But I imagine they are looking for a young kid from us. Of course, I don't want to lose maybe our best PMD right now.

edit: well besides Andy Greene I still think Tao is better than Larsson at moving the puck up ice.

Nashville does not have Zidlicky. They haven't for 3 years.

Taormina is waiver-eligible next year and I doubt they have long-term plans for him. The Devils should not have to give him up in a deal for Zidlicky regardless.
