All good points.  And I hope this is PDB's reasoning.


I'm reading Erat is a healthy scratch tonight.

 

That would be a very...Lou..thing to do.

 

Maybe a trade there?

 

Let's trade urbom for Erat !

Not sure if you are serious in grabbing Erat, but he has a cap hit 4.5 and has ZERO goals. Unfortunately, I fear these are the only type of players the Devils have a shot at.

I don't know what we're doing with this roster. I assume its for conditioning, but who the hell knows anymore.

Honestly it's such a clusterfvck at this point.

 

I wish I could sit down with Lou, just for an hour, and really pick his brain as to what the thought processes were behind some of his more recent decisions.  

 

Carrying 8 NHL defensemen was an absolutely awful game plan the first time he tried it, and now, however many years later, here we are again.

They definitely won't find any trade partners for either of those two. It's either Fayne or Zid will be likely traded.

 

 

Zid is too valuable while we are still in the race

If it's not this, I'm baffled.

 

Zidlicky is going nowhere so I'm not sure where that is coming from.  If, and a BIG IF, we get to the playoffs, a guy the likes of Zidlicky makes a difference in bringing "O" from the "D"...

 

Fayner could be a jettison-able part.

Erat has been terrible. Hence the scratch.

Erat is an NHL-established version of Petr Vrana.  We get Erat and I'm gonna flip my lid.  I would rather take my chances giving Cam Janssen 3rd line minutes.  Erat stinks.

I think Zid is moved a few days before the March 5th trade deadline (Lou seems to make his moves before other teams do)....

That trade hapeens unless in the 18 games we have until then, we go something like 12-6 to get in the playoff hunt.

LL may even move him before the Olympics 'cuz if he gets hurt in the tournament, we get nothing....

 

Once Zid is gone , then Gelinas comes back and takes the #2 jersey.

in a way that'd be good but i'd really like to still have Zid next season. He's been bringing lots of production this year. Its really Volchenkov and Salvador that i fvcking hope Lou could get rid of... 

 

maybe there's hope, he got rid of White and no one really saw it coming.

 

At least one of the 2... please Lou

I don't think there is a trade coming. No trade clauses mean that fayne is really ur only tradable dman.

If this is not a conditioning stint then its ridiculous!!!  I keep getting more & more frustrated by the player moves on this team!!  Larsson gets NOTHING from being in Albany other than conditioning, what the point? if you have to nech Fayne then do it,., trade someone already ... this is so DUMB!!!

i'm not gonna get too bent out of shape on this for about a week. i think it's clear lou would love to resolve the logjam but i'm sure there are no takers for anyone that lou will deal on defense. even for nothing, nobody wants anton or sal. fayne is probably worth something, but because he's ufa, it would only be to a team that fancies itself a playoff team that's missing a depth defender.

 

maybe a team like boston who lost sidenberg for the season - that might work. maybe fayne brings back a 4th rounder.

 

but until then, i think lou almost hopes injury takes care of this to kick the can down to the road a bit until closer to the trade deadline

No! We must trade Zid! We won't make the playoffs and we won't win the Cup so why care?! Bring in some offensive minded prospects! Next year will be the same! We can't afford to lose him to retirement for nothing!
