In Topic: This off seasons UFA's and realistic possible trades

Getting bored. Cmon Lou, let's move a player or two.  We know it's gonna happen sooner or later with the amount of bodies.

IMO the bobby Ryan deal is a good comparable. Two good (although not top-flight) prospects and a first.

If henrique is even mentioned as a starting point in a potential trade for Kane I hangup. Honestly I probably wouldn't make that trade straight up.

You wouldn't trade Henrique for EKane straight up??  That's surprising.  EKane is a pure talent who has the near term potential of being a superstar.  He hits a lot.  Shoots a lot.  Is a fun player to watch.  Henrique is a potential 30 goal scorer, but he's nowhere near as dynamic or talented a player as EKane.  I think any discussion would indeed involve a player like Henrique.  I disagree that it would take Henrique + Ryder + Young D + 1st.  That's not realistic based on the fact Kane seems to want out and Jets need to do something.  I think Henrique + Ryder + 1st gets it done without a D for sure, and I think it's also possible Henrique + Ryder + high 2nd gets it done.  Granted, all with the caveat that it's highly unlikely NJ is even looking at him.

Exercise in futility - what would it take to get Evander Kane?  I realize many are opposed to the idea in general, but what do we think Jets would want back?  I reckon a good roster player at least (ie, someone of actual value).

 

Does Henrique+Ryder+Prospect or Pick get it done?

In Topic: Devils buy out Volchenkov

Feel bad for Volchie. Seems like a nice dude. Hope he finds a home at a very discounted rate for a mill somewhere.  On a cheap contract, he can still be a 5/6 that can eat some minutes.

All depends on what his true aim is.  If it's a cup, then yeah, options are very limited.  Dunno why a team like Boston would want him, unless Julien really has sway there and loved him in NJ.  But the contract is like 1 mill and probably 10-12 starts.  If his true aim is to win 700 games, seems logical the more starts he can get the better the odds, even on a bad team.  Maybe a Jets.  But the cup shot is out and money might be a little bit more available.  But he certainly can't get A) money, B) starts, and C) cup shot.  1 of the 3 maybe, possibly 2, but not all 3.  And it still seems like anyone signing him is a longshot.  Maybe MTL offers a tryout for the hell of it.
