well of course but a "why not" kind of guys are like bottom 6 guys... we have too many guys like that already. Nothing other than a TRUE first line talent could help us now... and non of those are "why not"
BUT like you said, anything that could take Salvador off the team, even if its a forward that we have to eat some salary, im all for it. We CANT start next season with Salvador AND Volch, and if id have to pick id pick Volch
Sometimes it's the not-so-obvious guys that contribute more than you'd think (think a Neal Broten-type...that trade looked completely underwhelming when it was made), and we've seen on-paper deals that make sense on the surface not work out. I'd have to look up names, but there could be a surprise-type out there. This mentality is more NBA-like, but if the Devils can trade Salvador for an expiring contract, and the guy coming back might contribute something (even if it's kind of a longshot), I'm in.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
