This God damn NHL app is sending out pointless random notifications - something about the Hawks and some T-shirts, and now about Sara McLaughlin?  Every time I see a notification I'm thinking it's a trade.

 

Seriously, who's running this app?

I don't know what to think. You gotta give up something to get something. I think my problem is I want a new Parise or a Kovalchuk, A-list star - and for that I am willing to give up a ton of stuff. If we had a lot of assets, I'd say sure let's throw something for Cammeleri he's the missing piece. I'm just not even sure Cammeleri is going to help considerably down the line.

 

I'm conflicted.

 

Down the line meaning next year?  I mean, I'm penciling in Reid Boucher into Cammalleri's spot - they're similar types of players and Cammalleri is going to demand at least a 2 year deal.  

 

The assets NJ has are mostly too big for a Cammalleri deal.  You don't give up players in this kind of deal anymore, it isn't 2000.  You give up picks because picks have more uncertainty than NHL prospects and teams need their prospects.  Matteau for Cammalleri would be a galling overpay.  Now if NJ got back Calgary's 2nd round pick in 2015 and added another prospect (Scarlett, e.g.), then maybe you have something, but I doubt Calgary does that.

 

The other thing I'd like for NJ to do is poke around in some of these young guys who can't get a shot with their current team - Jeremy Morin, Brett Connolly, and there's a couple others who are becoming waiver-eligible next year who don't look like they'll have a spot on that team.

I'm not that high on Cammalleri so if the Devils do get him I hope it's not for too much. I'd honestly be fine if Lou didn't make any moves.

Devils already don't have their first-rounder, not sure I'd want to give up what looks to be roughly a mid-second for a rental that doesn't look like a strong bet to really help.  Not thrilled about moving next year's second either, but I'm a little more open to that I guess. 

This draft doesn't seem that great from what I've been reading all year but it's worth noting that if the Devils move their 2nd round pick, then they'd only have a 3rd, 5th, and two 6th's.

That's a little scary, re: the picks.  Yeah, I'm in the same boat, just not terribly high on Cammalleri.  I definitely understand GMs rolling the dice on occasion, but this just feels like a gamble that wouldn't pay off that much.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

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.

yeah I don't see how cammalleri is a significant improvement on what we have, and it would only be for 20 games. Honestly I really don't think that's the guy conte was there for (maybe he was just in the area and wanted to catch a game?)

But with draft picks- wouldn't you say it's usually easy to put together a package on draft day to move up if theres someone sitting there in the 2nd round that Lou feels is a steal? I'm not looking to move any picks but it's not like they can't be recouped through offseason deals...

6 years, $5.5 per for Girardi staying with Rangers.

 

 

Looks Like Mr.Girardi wont be traded.

Not a bad deal for the rangers- I doubt he's worth that in 4 years but it helps them cap wise now. Hopefully this drives up prices on nhl defensemen so Lou can maybe sell one of ours off...

Huh, guess that means Callahan might actually be traded.

Rangers can't afford both contracts can they?

Tri,

 

Do you have any sort of hope for Matteau?

What do you mean by this?  I don't 'have hope' - Matteau's going to be an NHL player, or at least it's going to take a lot for him not to be.  He may only end up being a 4th liner but he should have a long NHL career.  He skates well, he can play physical, he's not an idiot with the puck, and he's doing reasonably well in his first pro season given that he is one of the youngest players in the AHL.  The names DeBoer mentioned in conjunction with him - Malone, Hartnell - I think it's unlikely he gets there, but he's got a lot of the right attributes.

 

As for the Girardi deal, it's not bad on money but 6 more years of an already declining Girardi is bad news for the Rangers.

"@jprutherford: Ryan Miller is a late scratch tonight. It's believed that a deal is imminent and STL is the likely destination."

"Sabres have scratched Steve Ott as well"

 

"@TSNBobMcKenzie: Not saying this is it, but one scenario that has definitely been discussed: 3-way trade involving BUF, STL and OTT. A # of variations."

 

"@TSNBobMcKenzie STL would get Miller, OTT would get Chris Stewart, BUF would get prospects from OTT. If Ott (the player) included to STL, 1st rder to BUF."

 

"@TSNBobMcKenzie That scenario I laid out is speculative but has been discussed this week by the teams."

That seems like a very good haul for Buffalo depending on what the picks are.

Picks are a first next year and a third in 2016. Great trade for Buffalo.

Buffalo has itself one hell of a new GM in Tim Murray. I imagine he will flip Stewart quickly.

I wouldn't mind seeing him in NJ to replace Ryder.
