I still think Zajac would be traded. Thrashers need bodies and are in the playoff race. Just a hunch


That would completely screw up the team. Other than Brodeur, Zajac is probably our most important player. He's our best center by far.

Zajac isn't going anywhere. It's a non starter.

A player of Zajac's caliber is not getting dealt for a rental. Jordan Staal didn't go for Hossa, Travis Zajac won't go for Kovalchuk.

We get Kovy and its not out of the realm of possibility that we sellout every single game the rest of the way.



Never happen.

Now that I'll agree with. Let's face it, we just don't sellout games. But who cares. Kovy will put more butts in the seats though. Whether it be 5 or 150 butts, it'll be a plus at the very least.

Zajac would be one of the last people on this team to be traded, probably right behind Brodeur and Parise. Not just because of his skills and potential in the future, but because we are already hurting mightily in the Center department, and letting Zajac go would basically gut the first line, regardless who you have playing on the wings. I'm pretty sure you can take Zajac out of any trade talk, unless there is another center of equal caliber coming back.

Atlanta isn't selling out every game, because traditionally they've been a dreadful team, in a bad sports market generally, much less for hockey. While I don't think the Devils sell out every game if Kovs comes here, attendance would definitely go up in the short term, just for fans to come and see him while the novelty is still there.

this thread might as well be njdevs.com the next few days hahaha. if there isn't a trade done by tonight, im givng up though. think about it, what else could be holding back the trade? the only realistic thing i could imagine is lou talking rolston into waiving the ntc, but then again that wouldn't be part of the oduya, bergfors, palmeiri and a 1st rumor. waddell getting cold feet? tonight is the perfect time for a trade considering its before the olympics, waddell said he would be traded in the next 5 days, and both teams are off tonight. cmonnnnnnnn

Maybe the Devils' flu bug is holding up the trade (hypothetically), I mean if we traded Oduya and Greene couldn't play tomorrow night then you're talking about Salvador, White, Mottau, Fraser and two other ?'s (Corrente or Davison and Eckford). That's a lot of crap to be playing on D in one or two games.

Lets face it after the Wayne Gretzky trade you can never say never, but highly unlikely, I think Langs would go way before Zajack. Youth and exp in Zajack is worth too much, I just hope it is a good deal Lou is usually good with these so I trust him. I also think Lou is not shy if he has no interest he would have said so.

I remember when we got Stevens in the arbitrary case and everyone said no way it would happen.

What ever happens its making my day go by quick.. LOL

If that is the case shame on Lou. Take your chances for a game or 2 with the sick lineup to get this deal DONE before another team swoops in at the last second and snags Ilya from us. I suspect that Waddell is fielding any and all offers he can get in hopes of inflating Ilya's value before he is finally dealt.

solid speculation njdevs26. I also forgot to add, hopefully all the already contenders go one runs, the middling teams blow, and the devils get blown out in the next week. an embaressment at the garden could be just what the doctor orders to get lou to make some calls.
