I couldn't agree more. I honestly wouldn't trade any 1 of those things for Kessler.

Well, you can trade future #1's, not that I think 2015 would be in play.

This isn't even a rumor. It's a guy making stuff up.

I would actually hate that trade. Good thing it isn't happening.

Yeah that trade would suck a fat one. Glad its BS. We can't trade the first this year anyway.

I seriously want the Devils to look into Radim Vrbata. He can come here and play with his fellow countrymen and he isn't too old. I think he can be a 50-55 point winger with us.

Vrbata would be good. I'd prefer Jokinen or Michalek, but if Lou signed Vrbata and D. Roy I'd be happy.

Vrbata is THE guy I'd like to see here out of the UFA's.

Devils have Jagr, Brunner and Ryder at RW. Unless one of them gets moved, I doubt Lou goes after one

Agreed. We need help on LW and center.  Michalek or J. Jokinen and D. Roy fit the mold.

I still think Ryder gets moved, he's not a good fit for this team. Even when he's producing he drags down his linemates.

I'd be happy with either Vrbata or Michalek.  Here's a really good article to look at when talking about this offseason's free agents.  I'd even be happy picking up Cammalleri or Jokinen as well.  The article shows that Vrbata, Cammalleri, and Jokinen at the top of those lists in terms of SOG and goal scoring rate.  I'd be so stoked to grab one or two of these guys.  Won't solve the offensive problems, but should definitely help.

None of these guys are appetizing to me other than Stastny. Really hoping for a significant trade. We have enough complimentary players

What assets do the Devils have to give up to acquire a big name?? You're okay giving up Henrique, Merril, and a first rounder in 2015?  Sacrificing what little youthful talent we have now is not the way to go.  Time and time again people demand a rebuild, but have no idea what that would entail.

Nobody said anything about a "big name". I'm not saying a player is going to be cheap but we have more assets than anytime in the recent past. We have a surplus of defensive prospects and it would not shock me to see a trade stemming from that.

The free agent market is almost all complimentary players who are going to do very little here as we have a team full of them already

The best move for the Devils is to wait in FA and see if any values pop up after the initial frenzy. Otherwise the trade market is the way to go the next year or two in terms of supplementing a young talented forward in perhaps.

Vrbata and Michalek would be a pretty decent UFA period for us. Can't help but think they're options 2 & 3 for many teams going for the bigger moves, so if Lou goes into July 1st conceding defeat on guys like Stastny/Vanek/Moulson, he can get a Vrbata, Michalek, or Grabovski before there's a frenzy to grab them in the days after July 1st/2nd.
