The rumors increased on the possibilities of the New Jersey Devils obtaining either Robert Lang or Martin Havlat from the Chicago Blackhawks according to the New York Post. Neither player would be considered a rental.
In addition to names such as Brad Richards, one loud rumble had the Devils interested in Marian Hossa, who looked fine in beating them Friday. The Devils are strong at right wing, but stranger things have happened.
Additionally, speculation began that the Devils may be a bidder in the Peter Forsberg sweepstakes
While i would more then welcome the idea of the Devils getting Hossa or Richards. How much are we gonna pay to get one of these guys? Hossa is definately a rental, and i don't think that we can even afford to resign the guy even if we wanted to. I guess that depends on how high the cap goes in the off season.
Does anyone know how much longer Richards and Havlat are signed for? And ether way Richards would be nice, but Havlat is awesome but only when he is healthy... I would love to see him play with Elias.
At what cost is this to us? Are we going to give up Oduya? Gionta? Greene? Zajac? or are we going to further deplete our weak farm system? Or hurt it further by trading away two first round picks.
I would love to get some of these guys... but not Hossa or Lang (rentals) and I'm very unsure how it will work out with the other guys. What do you guys think?
