as long as he deals Jagr, I'll consider Lou's trade deadline day acceptable. it is quite possible there is no market for anyone else he would want to deal (ryder, havlat, bernier, gomez, tootoo) or zidlicky refuses to waive his NMC.
but jagr can have a home found for him - there is no question of this and the devils can retain salary if necessary to make it happen. maybe he only brings back a 3rd. Whatever - he needs to be dealt.
i would deal all 5 of the players listed without NMC for anything - literally anything.
Eh, I'm still kind of hoping we keep Bernier, Gomez and Tootoo. They seem to have found their place on this team.
