Not sure why anyone would want Brunner.  Wheeler has also been putting pucks in the net at 30-per-82 GP pace the past couple of seasons, and looks like he's hitting his prime years now.  Not sure why the Jets would want a young defenseman who does have offensive upside but also needs serious work in his own end, a third-year 28-year forward prone to invisibility streaks so long that he gets healthy scratches, and a minor-leaguer who doesn't project to be anything special.  If there's a gem available at that #30 spot, I think I'd rather the Devils hang on to him anyway. 

 

Seems like the best player and surest thing being moved in this deal is Wheeler.  I just can't see why the Jets would be willing to take back three or four "ifs" for him.

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?

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.

the issue is the big piece there is gelinas and the jets are pretty set up on defense.

 

the other players you've got there don't do anything for winnepeg at all either. they're gonna want adam henrique. i would argue that he is the most valuable player (in terms of what other teams would want) that the devils have to trade (besides zajac but he's not going anywhere).

The Jets don't want or need defense.  They actually have a very good team now, they just need to get rid of Pavelec.

Disregarding the specifics, do we really want ANOTHER Devils and Jets/Thashers trade? The last one was a major PITA. ;)

I didn't think that Alex Ponikarovsky was *that* bad.

Since when can they trade their 1st? Not only here that I've heard that proposal.

I know they can't trade the pick, but after they select a player with it, why couldn't they move that player then?

Ha, how awesome would it be if Lou moves us up in the draft by trading the "immovable" pick in a quid pro quo.

I mean, they could, but this is not something that's done ever.  I don't really like the idea of it, either.

Not saying that I want them to...just stating that they could if they wanted to...basically that they're no longer bound to the pick once a selection is made.
