I'm beginning to think we need to start selling off assets and building for the future. We can't look back and say if we had Kovy and Parise - what if...we don't have top end talent who can win a game for us when we need it...which is their job. We don't have enough assets to trade for them without hindering our future...such as trading away a young D. If there's a trade to be had - I'm all ears.
Other than that - give me your best offer. Even Elias. The time has come for us - even though I love Patrik and he's a hall of famer in my eyes - is a contender would pay a lot for him. Let's stock up on picks for the first time in years.
I think he's up to the ask. He certainly was last year.
I just think the Devils are playing him too much. Yes physically he's fine, but this happened with Marty too back in the day - there's a reason why goalies don't play every game - it's not because of physical fatigue...it's the mental sharpness of being 110% for 60 minutes, every second. No empirical evidence of course to prove this - but it's just my spider sense. He played 6 games in 9 days? - it's too much.
