In Topic: Zubrus to be bought out.

The rebuild started on May 4. Have some patience. Plugging in UFA vets and making big trades (using what assets!?) would just make the Devils into the post-lockout Leafs. High payroll but very average and unlikely to make the playoffs nor flame out and get better odds at getting elite talent in the draft. 

 

The next year will suck if you like winning, seeing the Devils being competitive and in the playoffs.. Probably the year after as well. Maybe by Year 3 they'll be a bubble team or make the dance. But it'll take a while.

I think around 10/11 or 11/12. He got a lot of minutes already in 09/10 but didn't really excel until a year or two later.

Been an excellent dman for a number of years and certainly underrated during that period, but it'll be curious/interesting/scary to see how he progresses in the coming two-three years. He's entering what is often the decline years, and let's just hope he ages gracefully and not rapidly.

I think he'll end up being a really good #3, which often means playing top pairing minutes (coaches tend to go 1 and 3, 2 and 4).

If you agree to take Phaneuf to get JVR you'll pay Phaneuf 7m until 2021 and JVR ~6.5m for his decline years. How does that appeal to people?!
