I agree you can have 2 superstars, however if you compare the Devils and, say, the Penguins, the major difference is that the Devils depth forwards are way overpaid. The Pens have 4 forwards making over $2m, compared to the Devils' 8. There's no way to build the Devils into a great team without dumping one or two of the larger contracts, and that's all going to depend on who's willing to waive the NTC and what Lou's willing to give up to sweeten the deal.

As I've said all along, someone or more has to go.

Well yeah, but if the Devils were to sign Kovalchuk, they'd have to shed some salary, so instantly Rolston's $5 millon or Zubrus's $3.4 million are gone, or something similar to that.
