  1. GDT: Devils @ Carolina 5:00 PM

    I love Nico, but he wasn't even the best player on his line last week.
  2. Zajac... OUT 4-6 Months

    I think it's clear that Henrique should be on the wing, but I don't think it'd be the worst thing for him to be at C if Nico isn't ready for Top 6 minutes out of camp.
  3. Devils acquire Marcus Johansson from Caps

    When the other 29 GMs know you have to trade a solid player, it's tough to get good value for that guy.

    It's way too difficult to say that 2021 is the year the Devils become true cup contenders, but not before or after, and Adam Larsson would put them over the top. There's still plenty of moves to be made in that time. If trading for Hall puts them on the clock at 3 years, than keeping Larsson puts them on the clock at 4 years. Both players could very well leave/have left the Devils, or they could stay. It's not fair to judge that trade based on what a player might do in 3 years. I know, and I don't disagree that we would've probably been more likely to re-sign him down the road. But remember how badly we needed NHL-ready, top-end forwards last season (and still do)? Passing up a Hall for Larsson swap because one might be more likely to re-sign in 5 years can't be justified unless the chances of one re-signing versus the other are wildly different. Larsson may have been more likely to re-sign, but not by that much - money talks in UFA. Bad performances last year from all the D and losing Merrill haven't helped that trade in hindsight, though, I agree.

    I think that's a concern, but Larsson is only a year younger than Hall, and becomes a UFA just one summer after with the current deals in place. Maybe there would've been more optimism with Larsson re-signing down the road, but if Hall wants to leave to win, why wouldn't Larsson?

    It took a lot of obvious tanking, but the Sixers have a pretty bright future. A few guys can change an organization in basketball - that's tough in hockey.
