Admittedly I would have said last year Zach was clearly the better player, but Kovy really rounded out his game with all the PK'ing he did - for the first time in his career, and was impressive in the

Crosby is always interested in semen. Ohhhh, Semin. Gotcha.

Regardless of whether or not we get zach i would like the devils to try to get penner. He wud be a great pickup for our third line

He's a lazy floater that had 2 seasons of crap play and showed up in the playoffs for a few games - you want to pay $4M+ for that?

you guys are crazy. you expect to get parise and suter, then you need to address the who our goalie will be and fill in the RW holes. it wont happen.

i dont think i see i said anywhere that i expect that to happen. anyone that actually expects that is outside their mind

you obviously make the good point that we are at the point where we really need to think about our goalie but you can't deny that singing zach and suter would be a huge free agency

it would be awesome. im just saying at this point we have prospect goalies under contract.

A Zach resigning and the addition of a guy like Harding would be a pretty successful free agency. But I wouldn't be shocked to see moose back for another year either. It seems whenever we think it's time for a young goalie Lou signs a veteran stopgap (weekes, Danis, moose, etc)

One of Suter or Parise, if not both, will not make it to July 1st. Id not be surprised to see both stay put.

The names Im most intrigued by that I could see us bringing in realistically are Stoll and PA Parenteau. I've been a fan of trading for Stoll in the past and I think he'd be a good fit here. I just can't see it happening. Parenteau is more logical. I don't see Poni coming back, so we will probably replace someone on the offensive side.

If Sal isnt coming back, on the D side, I'd love to poach Carle from the Flyers, but he's going to get a raise from 3.4.

Resigning Zach and getting PA Parenteau would be great. Re-sign the 4th line too. Then we have the goaltending situation left. We could get Marty to come back cheap for one more year to mentor Wedgewood and split 60/40.

Wedgewood wont be in NJ next season. If anyone from the farm is up here it will be Frazee. He was with the team all through the Finals, not on roster, but I think hes going to get first crack. I also wouldnt be surprised to see Moose back.

it feels like frazee has been with us so long but yet he has seen such little action i always forget about him.

Wedgewood definitely won't be up yet, but I also don't think they have much confidence in Frazee. I think it's gonna be moose or someone from outside the organization. Kinkaid isn't ready yet either.

If we do acquire Parenteau and re-sign Parise this offseason will be nothing short of a success. I rather have Moose resigned then going after the other options (Harding, Johnson, Gustavsson...) I like Harding and all but as others have mentioned he is injury prone. Montoya would be a decent option if we could sign him on the cheap. However, I think the Isles will offer him a contract extension.

Some tweeks to that previous lineup.

Kovalchuk-Henrique-Parenteau

Elias-Josefson-Clarkson

Carter-Gionta-Bernier

Boulton

Greene-Fayne

Tallinder-Larsson

Zidlicky-Volchenkov

Brodeur

Montoya

I salivate at the thought.
