Yeah pretty much. All about the debate and conversation for the vast majority of us. Bloggers aren’t throwing out anything earth shattering ever and after our last blogger we’re just fine without one. This thread is living proof you don’t need a blogger to drive the conversation.

Not sure if during the TDL Lou gets an opportunity to speak and sell the team to players that have NTC’s? That may be one of the things that are different? I get your frustration I don’t think there’s a fan on this thread that doesn’t but let’s see how this day shakes out before we draw any conclusions. I can see Lou going either way.

I've very rarely bash them but I just would like to see them add more offense and I think it would be ok if they gave up a little for a rental.

Personally I feel Tampa and Boston would be the only teams they probably couldn't beat in the east but win the division and they won't have to worry about them unless they get to the finals.

That's a bizarre return. A pick in the 5th round 4 years from now. I could see if CBJ was offering either a 5th this year or like a 3rd in 2022 and the Devils chose to wait for a higher pick but damn...that's hilarious

"While we believe goaltending is a position of strength for our club with Sergei Bobrovsky and Joonas Korpisalo, we thought it was important to add depth to the position,” said Kekalainen.


Guess they're just adding depth

Devils with the first move of the morning. Marcus Johansson will go today as well. New Jersey looking for a 2nd round pick.


That is a price that shouldn't scare the Isles away

Would you give up a first, Dobson or wilde, and another prospect for Laine?

I see what you’re saying but I think these posts are also a bit short sighted. So because they surprised and are playing better than expected they shouldn’t try to improve and fill obvious holes? What would you say if Lameriello traded for Stone would you then condemn that move? You seem to think making a trade is not a good idea correct? I’m curious to see what the “playing on house money” crowds reactions are if Lameriello does make a move.

Obviously it depends on who the player is and what the deal is. Maybe there's a bargain out there...who knows! In general, though, no matter what's given up, I'd be happy to see a quality player come in and play for the Isles, and I'm not going to be mad or whatever if one's brought in. I'll enjoy the hell out of it for the rest of the season and hopefully during a long playoff run.

If that player walks after the season and Lou gave up a truckload of assets, then, yeah, looking back during the offseason I'll wonder if that was really the best move for the organization. That fourth slice of pizza looks like a no-brainer in the moment, but maybe not the best idea when you're on the shitter later on.

I see major deadline deals, especially for rentals, as things you do when you're all-in for that year, especially if your window is at its peak or closing. I don't think the Isles are there, but that's just my take. If we're talking about filling gaps in the lineup as something a little longer term, I don't know if the deadline's the best time to do that when you have desperate teams and rentals blowing up the market.

It's all a gamble, though. Who cares what you gave up if you bring in the exact right player and he helps you win the Cup, right? I just think the odds of that are a bit too slim relative to the risk of severely overpaying for a guy who walks in a couple of months, all for maybe a second round exit or whatever.

I had to leave my board, they were talking baseball and one poster who said we should stay away from Laine.

I agree and Johanasson was rental I suggested they should go after and wouldn't have to mortgage the future.
