I'm just wondering why Columbus would trade us Gaborik, seeing as how we're head to head with them for a playoff spot...

That'd be a huge red flag, just like when Donovan McNabb and Drew Bledsoe got traded in the division. Buyer be very afraid of division teams dealing off key pieces.

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00

Where was this Gaborik trade mentioned?  I haven't seen anything anywhere, is it something substantiated?  I'm torn..he's a great scorer, but he's made of glass.  And he was a habitual big-game vanisher.

I'm ready to let go of Yayo & Fayne. 

 

Fayne is a solid Defenseman but has fallen off the wagon for us this past year. He needs consistency and a coach that will support him.

 

Yayo is like trying to jam a square peg into a circle space. He just doesn't fit and he can be great somewhere else.

Fayne's been kind of consistent this season and I haven't seen anything that suggests the coach doesn't support him. Completely different situation from Yayo...

I'm pretty upset about the Martin St. Louis situation, always been a huge fan of his so to see him request a trade from Tampa is disappointing... Makes it worse that he's set on New York. We can only hope they give away a buttload to get him; if I'm Yzerman, I go into the trade talks knowing that the pressure's on Sather to get rid of Callahan, and not at all the other way around.

if volchenkov is getting scratched and fayne is staying in the lineup, he's plenty safe

Hate to say this, but I think Steve Ott is someone Lou would be interested in.  Gritty veteran forward, on an expiring contract...

If this were a few years ago, perhaps.  But if the Devils are trading for someone like him now, it'll be mainly for addition by subtraction.  This team has enough grit.  It needs to score more goals.  Ott won't give you that.

Oh I completely agree with you.  I hope Lou doesn't pursue that option.

apparently the price is at least a first and a prospect. I'd never want to give that for any UFA this season

I dont know where it came from...

 

But i think we need to sign him this summer... he is a star (talented player that can manufactured goal) This is what we need...

 

Him and stasny should be our mains target

Jagr will ONLY be traded if the Devils ARE NOT playoff bound, look for them to trade for Gaborik/Moulson.


i know its not a legit source

If you want to do that, I'd hope you would at least, rather than citing some dumb source, put your own thoughts.  I'd rather have one fan's random speculations than someone posting tweets that have no authority at all and then someone else coming in and being like 'no way, rumorbreak totally got [trade] or [signing] right.'

What do you think a trade for gaborik would look like? It looks like they could use defense, and we'd have to move a winger to make room- maybe fayne+Brunner?

Honestly I don't mind seeing the random rumors. There are certainly tiers as to what sources carry weight but I like to know what's out there. It's just fun to speculate. Maybe some of them can even turn out to be true.
