There is literally nothing new to talk about.

How does your stomach feel DP26? I'm putting money that Parise will sign elsewhere and you'll be hospitalized.

Dirty grounds don't fvck around.

I realize we have D, but i think trades are coming and i wonder where our D will end up. if parise goes, do we go for more offense or do we maybe take a defensive route?

Who's replacing Zach's offense?

Get out of the defensive mindset. Our defense is set. We have 8 on the big club right now and 2 guys in the AHL that are itching to get up here (Gelinas & Urbom) with another stud likely to have a shot at the club this year or next (Merrill).

We have no forward depth in the minors and if Zach walks, we lose a big chunk here. It seems pretty obvious what we're going for if Parise walks. Tedenby is not an answer.

A full season of Zajac will get 20-25 goals, so you need 10-15 more goals which is not crazy.

But I agree offense is the way to go. Our defense is strong right now with all the young prospects.

How about Zajac? We basically played all of last season without him, and so far even if Zach leaves (which I hope he doesn't) we are basically the same team. Yes the team gets 1 year older, that helps some players, hurts others but there is also another year of "gelling" and the team getting comfortable with each other. Honestly I'm pretty optimistic about our 2012-13 season with no other roster changes right now (assuming we have a season). And as we saw this playoffs, once you get in anything can happen.

And a strong fourth line all year long will help us. But we still need to look at trading for some more offense, too many defensemen at the moment.

Im not worried about 2013 yet. However, I think its clear that if we do lose Zach, we're not going to go after another defenseman, thats the main thing I was replying to. I also think Henrique could do even more in his second year.

If Zach leaves, we're still losing a big points producer on this club that helped other guys get #s too. I get that Zajac is still there, and Henrique, and Kovy etc, but there is a hole in one of our scoring lines, and a rather big one. I dont see that hole in defense.

Semin? Ryan(though he hates NNJ and maybe the Devils but it might not matter)? Nash?

It was the website that insisted that Souray was going to come to the Devils and that he had signed. They were wrong. I think this was 07?

I dont think we have the assets to trade for Ryan or Nash. I think we could be competitive, but the teams that are rumored to be after those guys (Buffalo, Philly, Carolina, Rags) have more pieces to offer than we currently do.

Semin is the only one possible of those three IMO because hes a UFA.

Id bet Bobby Ryan hates the Devils. Its natural considering he's a huge Flyers fan.

Well yea, but I think what me and Zubie were getting at is, you asked who is going to replace Parise's scoring and the answer is, for the most part, Zajac. We didn't have him last year, and this year we (presumably) will.
