I don't know why, but I have a good feeling on this one. You always hear the same teams thrown around as possibilities when there's a big name on the trade market (Boston, NY, Philly) and while to hear that NJ is involved is shocking on its own, I'd have to imagine that they'd be pretty seriously involved at this point, otherwise they wouldn't be wasting their time competing against bigger-market teams that could really use a big-name guy.

Quote:
OK guys here is what I was just told by a NHL player. The Devils will be the team getting him and the package will be centered around Niclas Bergfors John Oduya ,Nick Palmieri and a number 1 is what he said he heard.

Supposedly this Dagoon guy owns a bar that a lot of NHL players go to or something. Not posting this because I think it has any weight, but more because it's an interesting deal. Don't think it would work, Bergy isn't enough of an established player to me.


Why did I just have to read this now. I wanted to go to bed. That package sounds plausible. Of course the only reason why this guy might know this is going down, is Waddell is telling other GMs about the offer to get them to outbid it. So maybe some GM comes in and does just that.

OR MAYBE ITS ALL HORSE sh!t

Highly doubtful. Like I said, I was only posting it because I thought it was an interesting proposal in that it differs from what most people think Waddell wants.

I read it over there a few mins before you posted it here. People there claim he has been right before on stuff before it happened, but it seems too good to be true....

I don't put a lot of stock into the guy that other guys back because he's been right before about other things that a bunch of other guys have seen........ and so on. I can't take this anymore, I gotta get to bed. And by that I mean I won't be able to sleep and I'll be back on to check this in an hour.

he runs Poitin Still in Hackensack. does booking with players all of the time. he is credible, whether he is right, that's another thing. the first test is "does the trade work cap wise?" and it does.

How about this...even if an NHL player told someone something...what does an NHL player on the Devils possibly know? Lou isn't letting anything out.

that's not true, if it's the player potentially being traded... if it's close to happening, and you don't run your business like an a$$hole, they'll get some headsup. and then there's the agents.

he was looking into booking Bergfors.

I can't sleep. It's scary how much I care about this team. I was trying to seperate myself from thinking about the team, especially after flipping out on the LA loss. But now this sh!t.

Looking at salary numbers, the deal is becoming more plausible to me, so long as Oduya (who is more plausible than Rolston/Zubrus) is part of the deal. With Oduya's $3 million off the cap next year, the Devils are $13 million under the cap, the only other significant potential free agents being Martin and Clarkson (who is restricted). The following year Langenbrunner and Pandolfo are off the cap, total $5.1 million, although Parise is a restricted free agent.

I want to freeze myself until the guy is traded to wherever.

Jeez, and just because I can't sleep I'll add that the reports say Atlanta's looking for a top prospect, a player with an immediate impact and a pick. Oduya, Bergfors and a pick?

Oduya, Bergfors, Palmieri and a 1. but the word was "centering around" so there might be more or something to be hammered out.
