Well i think they are decent.

Years ago we didn't even have that and had to trade something we wanted to keep to get anything else

I would like to see more trade proposals with Ty Smith involved. He's pathetic defensively. Offensively all he does is lob weak wrist shots into a pile of players in front of the net. He's the worst player in the entire league. I'd give him away for free.

these posts always make me lol. 12 months ago he was one of the most exciting young defensive players in hockey. the devils can control him for several more years. why sell low? trade him at his absolute lowest value?

100%. Put Smith, Zacha, and Johnsson in some sort of trade package and ship them out.

Some teams may still see his potential in a trade though.

Its a timing thing. If we can get something worth his projected value and that it works. why not

We have Graves, Siegenthaler and Luke Hughes is coming up... unless we move one to the right side, there's no room for all those guys anyway

Absolutely not. His best days are likely behind him. 

Why do you say this? He's only 24 and has never failed to put up at least 40pts a season(and that was in a really bad year).

Of course we should move him, should be an easy upgrade too, as I am sure there are a bunch of teams who would fight it out to give us the best offer on “the worst player in the league”.

We have Graves for this season, maybe less if he gets shipped at the deadline. He’s been ok, but I don’t have him in the “absolutely must re-sign” category.

We do have "decent" players that we can easily include in trade packages that are not 100% useless (some are close to 100% but not 100%)

Tatar, Zacha, Johnsson, Kuokkanen, Boqvist could all be traded and i dont think we'd be missing a bea

great question.

Those guys aren't assets that are bringing back much of anything that's going to help this team now. I think the term JAG was created for most if not all of them. "Decent" isn't good enough or shouldn't be at this point. So much  "decent" in your lineup gets you out of the playoff picture by the end of Nov. 

Still hoping the bar gets raised and we're not stuck with decent and so much of it.

I'll say it again, ALL I SAID is that these are guys we can trade without skipping a beat and that we can throw in a trade package. I never said they could bring anything amazing or anything like that, i literally just said we can get rid of those guys. They are just taking room on the lineup or doesn't really fit anywhere.

These are guys we can completely remove from the team, ideally through trade so that their salary is off the book. Addition by substraction. These guys combine for more than 10m per season. Some guys are talking about Gaudreau or forsberg being too expensive. I'd take any of those 2 instead of Tatar, Zacha, Kuokanen pis johnsson, and just move up cheap youngsters.

Is this clear boys?

I meant trading the 2OA for 28/29 year old goaltender John Gibson from Anaheim.

Nobody is arguing they can't be lost. Everyone wants to lose them.  The argument is that you called a bunch of stiffs "decent" players.

I want no part of Gibson at all really, let alone for 2OA.

Just taking out the trash. Just need to felice a GM into taking them as a part of a deal or one on one whatever the scenario is and sending a better asset our way.  Rarely happens. They're plugs.  Hoping we see much less of these type of roster fillers going forward.
