That we could go over the cap with the roster we had is mind-boggling.

 

The Devils spent $8.5M on goaltending - two #1 goalies is expensive.  I don't think anyone in the league spent more.

Yup and at least for next season our goalie expenses will be in half but expected to go up again in 2015-2016. Our cap situation is manageable especially when you factor that Salvador, Ryder, Brunner, Jagr, Zidlicky all come off the books next offseason with Ruutu, Elias, Zubrus, Volchenkov the following year. Also who knows about Clowe.

I'm hoping Clowe has an injury free season and shows what an asset he is

look at players that had concussions lately, like Crosby...it looked like one more hit and he was done a few seasons ago, but last season he was good to go

theres another player or two that looked like it was over for them and they bounced back...thats what I'm hoping for

The thing about the cap overages is that let's say NJ is working with a 68 million cap, well they get the same bonus cushion, and Zidlicky and Jagr are already signed up with bonuses.  So they can just repeat this next year.

 

When you say "repeat this next year", you mean last year's bonuses do impact our 2014-2015 cap, but our 2014-2015 bonuses can shift to 2015-2016 cap, so we're kinda status quo?

Yup, when he got into the swing of things last year, his value was there. Great player, I can see why Sharks fans loved him. Hope he can bounce back with an injury-free season. Would love to see how Clowe leads this team in a playoff run scenario.

COL is taking ROR to arbitration.  Interesting development.  I could see them losing ROR or Stasny here this offseason.

COL gave pending UFA C Paul Stastny multi-year contract offer couple of weeks ago. No dialogue since but it's expected to get going soon.

If they get Stastny resigned, I'd probably look to trade ROR since he probably won't sign there after going to arbitration and them dicking him around a couple years ago

Lots of high quality centers apparently on the move this offseason.

 

Kesler, Spezza, Stastny, potentially RoR .. would love to see the Devils get in on the action.

 

Zajac would be a PERFECT 2C.  Devils would be dynamite with a offensively creative 1C.

I don't see us trading for these guys without mortgaging our future.  I can be patient and would rather us look inside the system.  The 2012 team was built like that.  A good number of homegrown players mixed with a few solid trades here or there to solidify us.  You never know what young players will do when they show up to camp in the fall. 

Homegrown: Parise, Clarkson, Zajac, Henrique, Fayne, Greener, Larsson, Elias, Brodeur, guess you could throw Gionta, and Josefson in there too. 

Solid trade/waiver acqs:  Kovy, Poni, Harrold, Carter, Zids, Sykie, traded guys from further back would be guys like Zubrus, Salvador.



EDIT: Didn't Parise goto club arbitration in his last RFA year?

Hmm, I'd give up Gelly and a 2nd rounder for him.  Probably not enough.

One of the many reasons the Devils won't trade for those players is because they don't have the assets to do it.  Vancouver and Ottawa want something like a first round pick, a prospect and a good young player.  Translated into a hypothetical, that would mean, for example, from the Flyers: Courturier, the Flyers first round pick this year and someone decent in their system.  The Devils do not have a first round pick to trade this year, will not want to give up their first next year, and would not want to trade someone like Henrique for expensive players that are clearly on the decline.  My prediction is that Anaheim will trade for one of Spezza or Kessler, and most likely Spezza.  They have a ton of cap space, two first round picks this year and a lot of young pretty good forwards that are expendable (Emerson Etem, Kyle Palmieri come to mind).

Just because a team wants that doesn't mean they'll get it. There is no chance anyone gets close to that Flyers deal you hypothesized.

Kessler I bet could land that.  Spezza probably less, but it would still involve at least a first round pick going the other way.

It would cost Larsson and we'd have to dump some salary.

The Flyers are nuts if they send Couturier for Kesler straight up.
