Colorado Rockies 1976 Posted February 6 Share Posted February 6 9 minutes ago, ajsgolf said: I hate to mention it but does anyone here really think the Devils will get him? Carolina just freed up space with Pacioretty and the Rangers would always luck out over the Devils when it comes to the two battling out over a player. You think Nico having a relationship with Timo makes any difference? Hate having to ask but since when do the Devils ever get lucky with something like this? Sorry, I’m just extremely bitter at the thought that TF stated he’s looking for a top 6 winger and will end up with something like a fvcking Ryan O’Reilly or even Tarasenko, wouldn’t want either, fvck off, sorry, I’m pissed and just venting. Now if someone can make a good argument or give any hope that the Devils have an actual chance of getting him please state otherwise. I have no idea where he'll end up. I can't see how the Devils aren't heavily in the mix, if Fitz really wants him...Fitz can put together the right kind of package to snag him and though they'll become a little top-heavy, they can extend him long-term. At any rate, I can't go right into negative territory without seeing what happens first. How much are YOU willing to give up to get Meier? If some combo of Sharangovich/Holtz/Casey/1st-rounder/meh-ish throw-in Ute prospect doesn't get it done, are you willing to put either Mercer or Nemec on the table, if that's what it takes? If Carolina's offer is so good that Mercer or Nemec is the only way to better the Canes? That's where I suspect Fitz is going to draw the line. I've already said it but I think the ONLY way he even begins to consider dealing one of them is if the trade becomes damned near one-for-one...basically, Mercer or Nemec, 3rd-round pick, Ute throw-in, that's it. And even then I don't think he really wants to make that kind of move. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
