man...i feel like a trade is coming. we have salary room and if stevens returns, extra defensemen.
Maybe Lou has some fine print added in the new NHL rules that says:
"Rule LL007: If Niedermayer is signed on another team the NJ Devils are allowed to play with 7 players at all times. The 7th player on the ice must be a defenseman."
It would be about the same to have Hale, Brown and Mcgillis on the ice as having Nieds.
