re:  the bolded, never say never, but I'd be surprised.  One can make the argument that if the return is nothing great (say, a 3rd rounder), then might as well hang onto him...but I say just get what you can.  The only way I could see him staying is if his agent finally realizes that it's 2021 and not 2019 and before, and comes back willing to take reasonable term (leading to a contract extension). 

Once again, the Devils won't be fighting for a playoff berth, and we've seen how two or more upper-round picks can get you an NHLer.  And if I were to put a percentage to it, I'd say it's 75% that Palms is back here on two or three-year deal, whether he's traded or not.  So if some other team wants to "borrow" him for a while, fine.  Even if Palms ultimately signs elsewhere, OK...but like I said in a previous post, Devils are going to have an absurd amount of cash to spend.  Spend some of it.  

Just read that the Devils would retain some of Palms salary for a trade, that is a game changer, I didn't calculate that in earlier, so I expect him to be gone. Hello Lou Lam get your pen out, he doesn't even have to move.

I mean if I were them, I would actively be advertising that I would retain the full 50% allowed. Why not? You don’t need the $2.325 million in cap space before the end of this year and you can ask more for him if you are retaining salary. 

If we weren’t doing that, we’d need our collective heads examined.

But, mfitz, why would we -- as fans -- need to get our heads examined? After all, we are fans -- and as such, we don't actually make these moves. 

Isn't that fvcking nutty, my man?

I don’t know about you, but the team reads my message board posts and acts accordingly. It’s the only reason Zacha is good now. Next season Jack will be finishing like Peter North and you will all thank me.

I don’t know what’s scarier...the fact that you mentioned Peter North, or the fact that I knew exactly who you were talking about.

I did hesitate, not knowing if most of the room would get the reference, but I knew I could count on you lol.

I had to Google it. I discovered he's not a hockey player but he is Canadian.

If you need help please let me know. Remember, 911 is always there for you. Are you right handed?

So you're saying Jack's gonna be shooting ropes from all over the offensive zone? Even in the face of the defenders.

Good thing he doesn’t play with Nico, he’s had enough blasts in his face.

Sometimes you are absolutely disgusting.

I am struggling to find the meaning in this post. You've got people out here talking about pornstars and you're telling me I'm disgusting?

You're not wrong, I'm just curious about the "why"!
