I can understand. Several of those teams have championship or at least playoff potential. The future for the Devils is still pretty foggy.

Like i said of Mantha 2 years ago... I dont want him. I saw him play a lot in Val dor.... Some game he is good... Oter night he become a Ghost. Not a guy playing great if he dont score he become useless. Wasńt great in playoffs when the game demand more grit, more speed, less space. So never loe Mantha as a player. He had top 5 stats an was select 20.

no one wants to come play here..nothing new.

 

That is not true at all. Plenty of players want to come to the Devils. Only thing is they're all over the hill and they know they can get a contract with no expectations. It used to be that NYR and FLA was the place players would go to end their careers. Now it's NJD.

i know its been posted already, but nhl.com has ROR trade speculation on the front page... again.

sources say they want a "significant defenseman" in return. 

 

Anyway we could take ROR and their 10th OA pick from them?  Maybe Larsson, Josefson, and 2nd round pick/prospect or something...

I think the new way the owners are taking now will prevent over the hill players from playing here.  At least on significant contracts.  That pretty much eliminates the Vermette's and the Staffords of the world from being signed.  However, I could still see stop-gaps signed on short-term contracts like MSL.

 

When the Rags were signing players like Fleury, Kamensky, Lindros, trading for Bure, etc, they were signing them to actually be pieces of their long term puzzle (well maybe not Bure).  None of them worked out though.

Leafs fans are gonna be a little underwhelmed with the return they get for Kessel.  They've lost a TON of leverage in dealing him over the last year

 

At this point, especially looking at his "list" (which is ridiculous, it's pretty much every team that can't make a major move), I think he's most likely staying in Toronto.

Devils have signed defenseman Vojtech Mozik to an entry-level deal

 

From what I'm reading, he's attended two Rangers camps and they either offered or were going to offer him a contract this week. So essentially, Shero stole him from the Rangers. Well done, sir.

didn't watch the whole thing but looks like a hard shot and actually a pretty good skater

 

I agree but that's all you can tell from highlights.  It'll be a big jump for him but not unheard of, as HOI pointed out.  I just wouldn't expect him to come right in but maybe something similar to what Salmela did, albeit this guy is a bit younger.

exactly and why would we want that? No top tier talent wants to come to a struggling nj team it's not a desirable destination right now. Players and good players at that want to go play on a team with other good players where they will have room to be or stay successful. The truth of the matter.

I'm sure they're devastated.  Although I guess we beat them at something. Hartford could of used the depth.
