    You have to give to get. I think Palmieri is the type of player that Torts likes. Severson is not a bust, but definitely not the second coming of Brian Rafalski. A first rounder, which should be a mid to late first rounder in 2019 should the Devils make the playoffs, is a jettisonable commodity. If Panarin would take 7 years at 7 million per, or even better, 5 years at 8 million per, you have to pull the trigger on the deal and call it a day. A double scoring threat on the left side. I like Panarin - but the only thing that worries me is his commitment to the team.

    Yes. I would do that. But, I would want a 2nd rounder in return to come with Panarin. Keep in mind, Panarin was traded for Saad straight up. I know the Blackhawks had to dump salary and that's why they got rid of Panarin, but look at it this way, would you trade Palmieri and Bratt for Saad? Palmieri is the kind of player Torts wants. His salary hit is much more advantageous than Panarin's future contract. It may be worth it for them, especially since the player doesn't want to re-sign there.

    I think Severson's stock was overly inflated by a good, unexpected rookie season. However, I can't put all of our defensive eggs in the "Severson basket" and therefore, I would be willing to ship off Severson - find a stopgap solution in the interim - if it meant being able to land Panarin. I am more than happy with Santini.

    Apparently Panarin negotiations have hit a halt in Columbus. I would LOVE to see Panarin in NJ. How about sending Palmieri, Severson, and a 1st to Columbus for Panarin (with extension)?

    Kovy's comments were unnecessary. What a d!ck.

    Tavares to the Leafs is admirable. Good to see he probably left money on the table to go home to a team he's wanted to play for all his life. They are a good team, and no reason why they can't possibly make a splash in the East this year. I always thought Lou Lamoriello going to the Islanders last month was based on a few things - namely him knowing the pitch the Leafs were going to make to Tavares in advance. Him having the intel on Tavares would have acted as leverage with Isles ownership giving them a chance to counter on the points that the Leafs prepared to present to Tavares. Pink elephant in the room now is the who Lamoriello/Trotz team that is set up for an Isles team that isn't really set to compete.

    Lou out at Toronto Named Dir Hockey for Isles

    I think they hired Lamoriello to give the Islanders some credibility in the Tavares negotiation. On top of that, it prevents the Maple Leafs from making a pitch for Tavares now that Lamoriello is the "insider" from the Islanders side of things. But all things considered, I don't think Tavares is any more an Islander on July 1st than Nikita Kucherov or Steve Stamkos is.

    Keith Kinkaid Appreciation Thread.

    Hope he has a fantastic WC. Trade him immediately after. Get some picks or a Top 4 d-man, or secondary scoring.

    Tavares or Carlson

    I think Patrick Kane or Brandon Saad could be had from Chicago. Everyone has a price. Drew Doughty can also be had since Dion Phaneuf is now a poorman's version of Doughty on the same team. Tavares will be a tough buy. I want him, and I think he can possibly end up captaining our team, but there will be teams out there looking for him, and surely we're not one of the target destinations he has.

    Tavares or Carlson

    I would really like Shero to work his magic to bring in Tavares, although I think that there will be a lot of teams vying for his services. I just don't know if Tavares will want to sign here and for the price. Shero has a lot of work to do this summer. Yes, we made the playoffs, but the team needs to be re-freshed, especially on the back line. I know I'm dreaming, but what is the chance that Shero can take advantage of Chicago's abysmal year and try to pry away Patrick Kane or Brandon Saad from the Blackhawks? Is Galchenyuk back in the conversation from Montreal? D-wise I would like to see no one short of Drew Doughty on the Devils. Maybe a pretty-boy like Severson, and some young guns like Bratt/McLeod and a 1st can land Doughty?

    I think Santini is in for Game 5. I would like to see Gibbons back in too.

    Does Kinker start next game or does Cory?

    Too much trying to play like Barcelona on the PP.

    We gotta get Tampa doubting themselves. That's the only way we can beat a team of this caliber. They are clearly, pound-for-pound, the better team. A cheap goal by us, a few posts by them, and I think things can change.
