I like Brown but I'm not as high on him as others. I'd rather keep Henrique and Merrill than use them as pieces in a trade for Brown.

Love Brown and would love him in the top 9 on this club. The guy hits anything that moves and can put up 50-60 points. It's true, LA doesn't need centers (Richards, Carter, Kopitar), so using Zajac or Josefsen or Henrique as bait is potentially moot. I agree Henrique should not be moved. I'd be okay moving Zajac or JJ for a deal like this, but LA isn't going to go for that.

I'd be totally fine throwing Tedenby to the wolves, tho since he's not shown much at the NHL level, LA might not have supreme interest in him. Tedenby+Bernier+2nd? If the report that they need a top-4 D and a complimentary scorer is true, I'd also have no issue shipping Andy Greene+Tedenby+Bernier. We don't need Greene. Brown could REALLY help out for a long playoff run and make a difference.

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.

again - greene/urbom/2nd - maybe.

defense is where the devils are in a position of strength.

Bryce Salvador or Andy Greene. My guess is one of those two will have to pack their bags and ship out to LA.

Greene + Tedenby + 2nd for Dustin

Although I love Andy I believe Larsson can take his spot.

I'd do this easily. Andy Greene is overpaid for the skillset he brings to the table. We have too many guys that can all do the same thing. IE, Fayne, Larsson, Tallinder (tho I hate him) etc. Ship Greener out. Again, dunno that LA does this, but that's A-OK with me.

We may have a large quantity of defensemen, but I wouldn't call it a "position of strength." Andy Greene is probably our best puck mover. Unless we are getting a better puck moving defenseman in return, I don't see the sense in moving him.

Urbom OR taormina + teddy OR palmieri + a draft pick.

That would be enough to get brown. Maybe even take out the draft pick.

the Greene + Tedenby + 2nd for Dustin Brown trade idea is honestly probably the best trade we can hope for this year. that would be a huge gain for us and i'd do it in a heartbeat. I know its probably just a dream but if it would work out from the cap space and $ aspect, then I would bow to Lou

Taormina has been great on our breakouts lately and he is putting up points. I think Greene is expendable with Larsson returning. Id rather keep Fayne over Greene for cap reasons, Andy is a little overpaid IMO.

i feel like Fayne and Greene are honestly almost the same player. regardless, for this trade i'd be fine with whichever of the two we would ship out

I don't think we can rely on Tallinder coming back this season. Plus, Fayne isn't the type of defenseman that can skate the puck out of trouble, and Larsson is still a rookie. I personally think Andy Greene is a very important component to this team right now (which may be good or bad depending on how you look at it).

Anyone else think Taormina is playing the same or even better then Greene this year?

Greene 34GP 0G 12A +7
Taormina 25GP 1G 6A +7

I think Taormina brings everything that Greene brings, same with Larsson. That's why I believe Andy is expendable in my opinion.

also from IncarceratedBob, if we want to even look at his tweets today:

"Devils are being very aggressive right now (Lou is sneaky) look for them to get 2-3 key parts (Top 4D-Man / Top 9Fwd) very likely"

I don't get why you're all willing to further strengthen an offense that's been fine at the expense of an injury plagued and thin defense? Not to mention this is the absolute wrong year to shake up the locker room. It's a good group that likes each other, respects the coach and is playing well. When you have all that, you do not trade key pieces off the roster.

Funny how we all want the Rangers to trade Dubinsky for Nash and upset the chemistry but somehow that doesn't apply to us, getting a meager upgrade on offense. Some of these deals wouldn't even upgrade the offense at all.
