Fayne is a movable asset for a player like Jagr. Urbom and Gelinas could also fetch something pretty good from a team that isn't currently contending. Lou has built a nice reputation with respect to spotting young talent that a lot of GMs seem to buy into. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD

I don't see Lou making moves with these guys. He's like hoarding D Men. I don't know if I'd be excited with him moving Fayne.


I mention Fayne only because he's the odd man out, at least for the time being.

Depending on how comfortable I was that at least two of our prospects are second pairing or better defensemen, I would pull the trigger on Fayne for Jagr.

If he could get Jagr for Fayne and probably something else I'd scratch my head a bit, but I wouldn't be screaming to the heavens in anger..

The goalie situation is interesting and I wonder when or if Lou will make a move. I reckon Marty could keep going another season if he wanted to but would it not be worth investing sooner rather than later in an experienced and effective goalie to play backup next season? As well as being able to be a long term starter? Whether this comes before the deadline or in the off-season, it would be worth looking at who could step into the boots now wouldn't it?

I'd expect Lou to look hard at Bouwmeester.  I think he tried to make a move for a core younger (under 32) D man and a older goal scoring forward.

This would be enormous folly if Lou were to trade for Bouwmeester. Setting the contract aside (which is not great to begin with), this is just not something the Devils need. There is a logjam on defense as it is with what's on the NHL roster. That doesn't include Urbom, Gelinas and the eventual debut of Merril. Defense is the last thing the Devils should be trading for. It is an absolute point of strength and would be a mistake in asset management to add more. Just like Salvador's contract was a mistake, regardless of his play.

I just called the Dallas Stars front office and demanded to speak to Jaromir Jagr so I could get to the bottom of these trade rumors.

 

The woman told me she couldn't do that, then asked if there was anything else she could help me with today.

 

It sounds like she's hiding something.  Will call again in another few minutes and pass along information as it becomes available.

Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

I want the Devils to pick up a definite Top 6 forward, maybe look at Derek Roy from Dallas or Fleischmann from Florida

Pass on Jay-Bo.  Makes no sense for us.  Plus I don't think he'd want to come here anyway.

I dont expect for Lou to add anyone. He is way too conservative and we dont even need that random depth D trade. sigh.

 

but it sounds like it will be an active deadline.

I agree, not with Lou though! It hard to think like LL, he is thinking about next year and getting all the players signed. If he does dump some players at the end of the season there will be a lot to pick from due to the drop in cap! All these teams like Pitt are doing what their doing for today this season. No way that team will look the same next year.
Off topic how many think Kovy will be back next week? He keeps himself in great shape and can play through a lot of pain just getting him out there is a help because of the crowd he draws. Just a thought!

Kovy still has many years on his contract. Better to keep him out til he fully recovers.

The Flyers have acquired defenseman Kent Huskins from Detroit in exchange for a conditional 2014 draft pick.

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.
