I'm not that high on Cammalleri so if the Devils do get him I hope it's not for too much. I'd honestly be fine if Lou didn't make any moves.

This draft doesn't seem that great from what I've been reading all year but it's worth noting that if the Devils move their 2nd round pick, then they'd only have a 3rd, 5th, and two 6th's.

 

That's a little scary, re: the picks.  Yeah, I'm in the same boat, just not terribly high on Cammalleri.  I definitely understand GMs rolling the dice on occasion, but this just feels like a gamble that wouldn't pay off that much.

yeah I don't see how cammalleri is a significant improvement on what we have, and it would only be for 20 games. Honestly I really don't think that's the guy conte was there for (maybe he was just in the area and wanted to catch a game?)

But with draft picks- wouldn't you say it's usually easy to put together a package on draft day to move up if theres someone sitting there in the 2nd round that Lou feels is a steal? I'm not looking to move any picks but it's not like they can't be recouped through offseason deals...

Down the line meaning next year?  I mean, I'm penciling in Reid Boucher into Cammalleri's spot - they're similar types of players and Cammalleri is going to demand at least a 2 year deal.  

 

The assets NJ has are mostly too big for a Cammalleri deal.  You don't give up players in this kind of deal anymore, it isn't 2000.  You give up picks because picks have more uncertainty than NHL prospects and teams need their prospects.  Matteau for Cammalleri would be a galling overpay.  Now if NJ got back Calgary's 2nd round pick in 2015 and added another prospect (Scarlett, e.g.), then maybe you have something, but I doubt Calgary does that.

 

The other thing I'd like for NJ to do is poke around in some of these young guys who can't get a shot with their current team - Jeremy Morin, Brett Connolly, and there's a couple others who are becoming waiver-eligible next year who don't look like they'll have a spot on that team. 

 

Tri,

 

Do you have any sort of hope for Matteau?

What do you mean by this?  I don't 'have hope' - Matteau's going to be an NHL player, or at least it's going to take a lot for him not to be.  He may only end up being a 4th liner but he should have a long NHL career.  He skates well, he can play physical, he's not an idiot with the puck, and he's doing reasonably well in his first pro season given that he is one of the youngest players in the AHL.  The names DeBoer mentioned in conjunction with him - Malone, Hartnell - I think it's unlikely he gets there, but he's got a lot of the right attributes.

 

As for the Girardi deal, it's not bad on money but 6 more years of an already declining Girardi is bad news for the Rangers.

"@jprutherford: Ryan Miller is a late scratch tonight. It's believed that a deal is imminent and STL is the likely destination."

"Sabres have scratched Steve Ott as well"

 

"@TSNBobMcKenzie: Not saying this is it, but one scenario that has definitely been discussed: 3-way trade involving BUF, STL and OTT. A # of variations."

 

"@TSNBobMcKenzie STL would get Miller, OTT would get Chris Stewart, BUF would get prospects from OTT. If Ott (the player) included to STL, 1st rder to BUF."

 

"@TSNBobMcKenzie That scenario I laid out is speculative but has been discussed this week by the teams."

@StLouisBlues BREAKING: The Blues have acquired Miller & Ott from Buffalo for Halak, Stewart, Carrier & two picks. INFO >>> http://bit.ly/1fPaGKk

That seems like a very good haul for Buffalo depending on what the picks are.

Picks are a first next year and a third in 2016. Great trade for Buffalo.

McKenzie, said buffalo might try to trade Halak to Minnesota and Stewart to Ottawa.

Apparently Minnesota is interested in Marty to.

I'd post the link, but I have no clue how to post a tweet on here or at all.
