How about the best move by this franchise ever when they drafted Martin Brodeur in the 1990 draft (1st round 20th overall)

^7^ coming up nice with the best trade Lou ever made. I torment the Laffs fans on pb.com every so often on that one.

How about Hankinson and Semak for Cole and Chambers....that's how we got Chambers.

Semak disappeared talent wise.

Unfortunately most of my Devils knowledge only goes back about a decade; who was it that we traded Sylvain Turgeon for, Lemieux or Richer? I think it was Richer, but either way that was another pretty good deal to add to the list, though I'd agree the Nieds deal was probably the best and the Brylin under the table arrangement not too far behind.

Worst deal: The one I personally had the most distaste for (even after winning the Cup and even though Souray's not been healthy in Montreal) was the Malacough deal; three guys for a rental floater and malcontent. Here's another less-talked about candidate: Terreri for nothing but what, future considerations in '96 leaving us without a proven backup goalie and costing us a playoff berth.

Worst trade: The Bicek trade... 'cause it hasn't happened yet, and now he's even publicly declared he won't be back next year for the Devils.

We got Chambers from the Bolts back in 95. He wasn't traded to the Stars, rather he left as a free agent. And yea, it was Bodger and Dody Wood we got in the Maclean deal. Had Johnny Mac not gone public with his trade demand, Lou probably could have swung a better deal.

Has, I'm pretty sure it was Lemieux we got in the Turgeon trade. We got Richer and Chorske in the Muller deal with Montreal.

The Richer for Odelien deal stung me at the time, but as much as people won't admit it, Odelien played some good defense for the Devs until the 99-2000 season.

The Gilmour deal looks bad now, but at the time it had to be done.

I still think that the Malakhov deal goes down as one of Lou's most underrated, simply because I don't see the Devs winning in 2000 without him. However, Lou bringing back Claude is still my favorite deal, even though he left in 2001. It gave me one last season to see old #22 in a Devs sweater, and thankfully lift the Cup as a Devil again.

The Morrisson for Mogilny thing realy stings now becaese AlMoe was allowed to walk for zilcho while BreMoe is now lighting it up.

Also, in the Lemeiux for Rolston, let;s not forget Lamoiello also got a decent draft pick back in addition to Cuade.

The Devs held the #11 overlal pick in the 1990 draft.
Teh Calgary Flames held teh #20 pick.
The flames wanted to draf a goalie named Trevor Kidd :huh: , but they did not think he would be around anymore when they got to their pick at #20.
So the Devils and Flames agreed to swap first round slots. The Devs gave the Flames their #11 spot and they took the Flames #20 spot. I guess the Devils felt that the guy they wanted, Martin Brodeur, would still be around at #20. The rest is histiry.
So yeah, the Flames actually traded up to get Kidd and passed on Marty.

Some other interesting names that got drafted that year after the infamous Trevor Kidd: Turner Stevenson at #12(Mont. from St. Louis), Keith Thacuk at #19(Wpg. from Buf.), Bryan Smolinski at #21(Bos.), Felix Potvin at #31(Tor.), Doug Weight at #34(NYR), and Geoff Sanderson at #36(Hfd.).

Good question. This I'm not too sure about.
Cash maybe?

At the time, Kidd was rated the #1 goaltender available in the draft. There was a poll of 20 scouts in The Hockey News. 19 said that Kidd was the better of the two goaltenders. One unnamed scout said Brodeur was better. I'll bet that one scout was David Conte. If true, the Devils made out in the deal because they weren't going to draft Kidd anyway!! :lol:

I think we missed getting Lindros by 2-3 points. Instead of hating the guy, half of you would have 88 jerseys.

While not a trade, the best "deal" Lou ever made was convincing the league to force St. Lou to give up Scott Stevens in the Shanahan tampering fiasco. Although Shanahan has done quite well in his own right, I'm not sure the Devs have two cups without Stevens.

Same can be said for Niedermayer. I, for one, am glad we have him instead of Lindros.

But it is fun to imagine what things would be like if we had Lindros in a Devils' sweater... ahh, counterfactual analysis.
