Lovejoy to the Stars

Recommended Posts

A 3rd for a depth defenseman - sounds awesome to me.

Seems like a fantastic deal to me.

I’ll take it. I thought we’d get a 4th at best for Lovejoy.

Fantastic return and that’s just the 3rd. I'm not familiar with Carrick. Thank you, reverend. 

Carrick is basically Lovejoy, just 10 years younger.

Five picks in the first three rounds now. Nice Shero, crack the whip on those scouts so they are good picks!

I’ve watched a lot of Toronto games over the past few years so I’m somewhat familiar with Carrick. He someone I actually prefer on the right side over Lovejoy, and he’s significantly younger than Lovejoy. Getting him and a 3rd for Rev was awesome work by Ray, this is a great deal

Would love it if Ray could get a first for Johansson from the Isles even if it means throwing in someone else, like Quenneville, and even if the first is lottery protected.  Could move up a good three or four spots from there if we give up our second, and will still have Nashville’s and the two thirds.

Agreed.  No use in having picks in the draft when we end up picking up players that are nothing more than glorified high school players.

NHL people seem to think Ray is going to turn these surplus picks into a top-6 forward a la MoJo/Palmieri. They shouldn't. Devils aren't going to be ready to win anytime soon. Use the picks to trade up in the second round. Right now we have Nashville's 2nd round pick.

Carrick's had a lost season but before that he was a decent back-pairing defenseman.  Good return for Lovejoy - wish he were going to a team with more of a Cup chance, but he's also already won so whatever.

He made those trades when the Devils' rosters appeared far worse than they do now.

True. Yeah, there's a small probability that with a bunch of things going right the Devils could be competitive soon if they keep the team together. That's why I'm not going to be up in arms if they don't blow up their roster, keeping only the youth. But if they make moves to improve in the short term, in all likelihood we're looking at a bunch of first and second round exits at best before Hall finds himself slowing down. If the Devils want to give themselves the best chance to build a team to win it all we are going to need some more high first round picks, being that we have failed so miserably in the draft through the years we've sucked so far. High second round picks are welcome too.

Ray continues to impress me with his trades. I would have traded Lovejoy for a bag of potatoes. A 3rd is very nice return.

There very well might be players better than Palmieri/Johansson available that the Devils can obtain for only cap space that, for all intents and purposes, they will have more of than any team in the league.

Great trade, thrilled to not ever have to hear the guy speak again. Always sounded like he was trying to be the smartest guy in the room when he actually sounded like he was the furthest thing from it.

Will be interesting to see if the PK drops off without him. That’s really the main thing he brought.

He was never that good, but at the same time he wasn't really bad. He always spoke about enjoying being a Devil and being part of the organisation. So I wish him well. 

He is one of those players I can see Ray Bringing back at some point though.

No issues with this deal. A 3rd is a good return for Lovejoy, and a young defenseman is an added bonus. If Carrick is terriblble, his contract expires at the end of the season. No big deal.
