I'd rather get Briere than Clowe, but it looks like its the other way around :(

Clowe doesn't surprise me especially if Clarkson is now a goner. 

 

Lou and his staff have always liked Clowe.  Plus he'll bring an element that was Clarkson's bread and butter before he seemed to start ignoring it these last two years. If the term is low and money right, he's a solid fit, but we'd still need another forward who can score.

 

Clowe's recent injuries do have me a bit concerned however for the longevity aspect.

Bleh, don't like Clowe, would probably have to be a 4/16 deal for him too.  If he did come here, I guess it would be fun for the board to have a new player to kick around.

Hearing DAL-BOS is a 5-player deal.


So i assume we'll see the same people who were bashing clowe saying he wasnt great as soon he went to NY say that he'll be awesome for us ?

Dallas is probably having to take back another guy with some salary.

Clowe would be way cheaper then what Clarkson wants and we could prob squeeze another signing...like Weiss who I really think will be cheaper then people expect due to his injury last year and Briere who we are in the running for as well.

 

If we can't afford Briere by then there is always Halischuk

Wow NJ is being mentioned in A LOT of rumors this week. Schneider trade opened up the floodgates, Lou wants another Cup.

Only problem with Clowe to the Rangers was that he was a relatively expensive rental. Second round pick (and hence no pick until the third round) for a player that want going to get you close to the Cup.

Comes down to price.

If the Devils can sign Weiss, Briere, and Clowe this team can absolutely compete for a cup. It's a pipe dream though. I think even someone like Grabovski would do if they can't get Weiss.

Not sure how we can pin Loktionov first line center after playing there for less than half a season in his first real NHL stint... then put Weiss a proven top center on a 3rd line..?

Only way Clowe would be a good pickup is if he gets back to the way he played in SJ. He's definitely a smarter player than Clarkson which is good. The money is ganna be what makes or breaks this deal for me if it happens.
And someone said this but I remember alot of people bashing clowe and the rags cause they gave up potentially 3 picks for a guy who hasn't scored yet.

This. Never understood the crazy love for Loki. Yeah he played well, but it was only like 20 games and everyone said he was already better than Zajac

I like Clowe if that's not the only move Lou makes. It makes up for the grit in Clarkson but it doesn't replace the scoring hole from Clarkson and the other guy who left the year before.
