In Topic: The Devils are bad and it's time to tank

The team as currently constructed, does kind of suck but you don't decide to tank after you are already half way through a rebuild. We couldn't be in better position for the future on defense and we just locked up our goalie of the future for the next 8 years. Basically, we need to accumulate some decent assets so that we can acquire good forwards as they become available, Dallas Stars style. Getting lucky on a forward or two in the draft wouldn't hurt either. We need to add a few top 6 skilled forwards but there's absolutely no reason to tear it all down and start over.

I would agree with those saying that if we are still a few points out at the trade deadline, you pawn of Jagr, Zidlicky, Rydar and Havlat for whatever 2nd or 3rd round picks you can get. I doubt Brunner has any value but he could be shipped as well. No reason to part with Zajac or Cammallerri since they have a lot of years left and I believe Elias still has a lot of value to the team in terms of being a leader and role model for the young forwards.

 

"Half way through a rebuild" - in what sense have we even started a rebuild?  We've started to incorporate some young players on defense.  That's literally all we've done.

 

The cupboard is empty on forward prospects.  There's literally not a single guaranteed top-6 player in our system right now (say what you will about Boucher, but he hasn't shown much at the NHL level yet).  To the bolded - how would you suggest we go about doing that if not through the draft (via a full on rebuild)?

You would think a smart seller would note in the comments if it includes the voucher- it would justify a slightly higher price.

 

You'd think so, yeah.  But people are stupid.   :noclue:

Don't want to pick on a new guy (welcome to the boards, by the way!), but wanting the Devils to acknowledge they're awful and act appropriately doesn't make anyone more or less a fan.

 

I want Lou to sell off the veterans like it's Black Friday.  SELL SELL SELL.  Hoard those draft picks, let the team suck for this year and next if necessary.

 

This team is currently composed of aging veterans collecting their final paychecks. It's a sad state of affairs.
