Devils 2014-2015 Off Season Thread

14 April 2015 - 09:51 AM

Should be a fairly busy off season for Lou this summer. Lot's of free agents to sign or let go, maybe a couple of trades, have to find a coach or two, and then there's the draft. I'll edit in changes as they come.

Does Elias get traded?

10 April 2015 - 09:11 PM

I don't think many of us expect the Devils to make the playoffs next year. Anything is possible I guess. Elias recently went on record saying he wants another shot at the cup. With Marty playing for St. Louis I'm personally over the career Devil thing. It's not as powerful anymore.

So does he get traded? If so do they wait until the trade deadline or do they trade him in the offseason? I guess there's always the possibility he plays one or two more years after his contract expires but he might not want to take the chance.

Elias would probably bring back a somewhat decent return (as far as our assets go) if paired with a young defender or pick (not a 1st).

So if he approaches Lou should he go? I'm even for Lou asking him if he'd want to be traded because he might but just doesn't want to ask.
