they both only have one year left plus the devils are going to have close to 40mil to spend next year.  also buying them out will effect your cap for the next 2yrs

 

Not to mention that if you buy them out, for better or worse you've got to replace their spots in the lineup. Assuming a Clowe retirement, not re-signing Ryder and Havlat among others, even with bringing in Boucher and Matteau from Albany you're still looking at holes to fill up front. Buying guys out just because you don't like seeing their names on the roster at their salary cost doesn't make sense.

I've posed this question to a few people.... Would you make a deal with God that the Devils win this year's draft lottery, but that the Rangers win the Cup this year? Nothing more, nothing less.

Definitely not. I'd rather see anyone else (even the Flyers) win the lottery than have the Rangers win a Cup this year.

Muller was a contract holdout which of course makes this a totally different situation.

 

Contract holdout in a non-cap, higher scoring, lower pay-scale (pre-lockout of any kind) era. The comparison is made moot by lots of factors. Just about every team had a 40+ goal scorer or several in those days. Trades were much more free flowing because you only had to watch your internal payroll numbers, not an external cap.

when Lou traded Muller for Richer. Muller scored 174 pts the next 2 seasons and Richer scored 137 pts during those 2 seasons. Sure he got Chorske too but if you want to bring in that argument well the bruins got Rilley smith who scored 20 goals his first season with the bruins and 12 this season.

 

You are grasping at straws on this one. First of all you're going back almost 25 years to find a trade that saw one main part score 37 more points than the other over 2 full seasons and comparing it to a trade that saw one part score 30 more points than the other in 1 full season. Was it a great trade? Well, both sides won cups after it so I'd say they both did pretty well with it. Richer was huge for the Devils. Did he score as many points as Muller in that same time period? No. Did that make it a bad trade? I don't think so.

Rubbish

 

Really? If you can't handle PK, don't respond to her. If her schtick isn't your thing put her on ignore, but she's been here far longer than either of you and has earned the right to be her own kind of different.
