Yeah I was just basing that off of the rumors that Kane wants out of Winnipeg. I should have made that clear in the original post.



Maybe Zajac + Greene + Urbom + 3rd for Kane + Burmistrov, Jim Slater or Tanner Glass (3rd line center replacements when Josefson moves to 2nd).


Tanner Glass is in Pittsburgh.

Damn. I was just looking at Winnipeg's stats from last year. Didn't realize he was gone. No big deal really.

Definitely. But if Lou can't, trade him while there's still value to be had. He should be trying to lock him up asap for that reason.

No chance of Burmistrov in that package. Slater would be a possibility. I dont know if they'd do two fwds though. It would probably be more like Kane and a junk prospect.

Hemsky would be much easier to get than Kane. I could see us getting Hemsky for Greene or Tallinder and a pick, but I imagine other teams would want to try for that too and may turn into a bidding war.

Hasek had a bad final season in the NHL save percentage wise in 2008 and was bad in the postseason games he got into. He was pretty much washed up then, can't imagine what he'd look like now.

Kevin Allen posted his best 15 remaining free agents. The cupboard is obviously bare if Arnott is ranked #3 behind Doan and Semin....

A good plan would've been never signing barch, letting Sykora walk...and signing andrei kostitsyn. Perfect 3rd line RW for us

The Barch signing is so insignificant that I can't even really find a problem with it. Sure it's another contract, but the Devils aren't near 50 are they?

But yeah, quiet offseason for sure.

We could still get Kostitsyn, for cheap based on his poor reputation in the league, but I dont' think he is on Lou's radar based on that either.

The plan is to undermine the role of an independent press while constantly whining that any reportage that deviates from a staunch conservative narrative is biased … while at the same time filling the editorial vacuum that that creates by filling the propaganda juggernaut from under the guise of a news organization. And that organization would be called Fox News.

Socialism is no more impractical than capitalism - either in their purest form are ridiculous, unachievable ideals. A healthy society requires healthy doses of both.

I don't know if I would want Kostitsyn, in the playoffs for Nashville he didn't seem like a real team first kind of player (referring to when him and Radulov got suspended for a couple of games by the Predators for partying the night before a playoff game).

He's played 41 games over the last two seasons. There's no reason he should be mentioned on there.

Kostitsyn might be faster then Sykora but he MAY also be lazier.

Then again the Devils might break him out of that funk. Who knows. I am convinced if Semin signs with NJ that "lazy" stigma he has would evaporate in no time. The same could potentially happen w/ Kostitsyn as well.

It's possible, but it seems like Kostitsyin and his bro always have issues. The Devils may not want to risk bringing that into a locker room that just lost a leader.

Yea, for me it's even simpler: could you really see that guy being a Devil?

If, and that's IF Lou has connections to any sort of depraved organization, which I have always suspected he might, I've always envisioned they would be of a more "infernal" nature; you know: less carnality and vice and more fire and brimstone.
