We're in a very complicated situation. 

We cannot expect or rely to get THAT much better from signing free agents because 

a) we're not an attractive destination so they may never come

b) we'd have to overpay for a dude and it might have a negative impact in a few years say he's not working out. But then we have to think that, even X player not producing super well... if he's younger and taking Greene TOI... then it might be positive in the end

c) one of Shero's good trick is to pry players out of team struggling with their cap, but it's constantly going up and up and it's giving flexibility to those teams

BUT at the same time, if we do nothing and that we're unlucky with trades or drafting, we simply cannot get much better. 

Obviously, everything is a gamble but we have to make sure to make good systematic and thought out decisions taking the future in consideration.

Congratulations, you just described the challenge of 31 GM's in the NHL.

Statsny has played in three games this season. JVR missed some games early on and has been held pointless in 8 out of his last 10 games. By Neal, do you mean the Neal who's being paid $5,750

I wish we had a “like” button of a vomit emoji, oh well, this will have to do:

smartass, not all GM started with a stripped team like we did in 2015. We have not much valuable roster players or assets to make moves without taking a step back.

Context man, context

Well sure it may be general but we're talking on a 1- Devils message board 2- about a topic specifically about Ray Shero 3- about the direction of the team and what he has to do in this situation lol

This, in particular, is what you have to do to sign a big free agent. You take the risk of sh!t at the end for the chance at gold at the beginning. Everyone knows this, that's why players still get those 8 year deals at age 30.
