Todd Cordell: The New Jersey Devils should inquire about Nino Niederreiter
- Todd.Cordell

Thanks Todd!

I like the idea of it but I really don't see them moving Nino. He's a key cog in the organization and a really good player. I would try to move Zach and his contract out of town way before Nino. Maybe to the Yotes', I don't know.

I was thinking the same thing. I also like brodin, just not sure what we could offer. What do you think a fair offer for wither would be, Todd?

I'd love to see Neiderreiter in NJ. I wanted that move to happen last year prior to the expansion draft, actually. But even if you eat the Ennis contract, which I'm also perfectly ok with, what goes back the other way?

They say they want to take a step forward, not rebuild. I think they probably want to add up front given they don't have a top-end forward besides Staal really (I think their blue-line is super overrated besides Spurgeon, but I doubt the Wild front office agrees). But the Devils don't really have the pieces to entice anyone. Pavel Zacha isn't getting it done. Johansson is a year away from UFA and has a NTC, Palmieri isn't going anywhere, and even if he waived his NTC, I doubt Minnesota is looking to get even older and slower, so Zajac is probably not appealing either.

The only way I see it working is if they think they have a really good shot at Tavares and just want to clear salary to make it work. Then you can probably get something done with just futures and eating the Ennis contract.

Switzerland is the new sleeper country for the draft.

I'll take Nino, and yes, Toews and Carlson. Just gimme the players. Not thinking Zacha becomes anything more than a 2nd liner at absolute best on his best day, and McLeod.. yes we haven't seen, but what he's done so far isn't exciting me. Toews, Nino, Carlson will solve many problems and maybe make us a top 5 team in the East instead of bubble team?

Dude you just spent 16 mil in cap space on Teows and Nino before adding Carlson.

They've actually had similar career arcs. Obviously Toews is and was at a different level, especially at his peak, but it's a good comparison in terms of they're both 2-way centers whose offense declined way earlier in their careers than you'd expect. He's now 30 and getting paid like a Hart trophy caliber player, which he hasn't been for about 3-4 years.

OTOH, Toews is still a play-driver and is still a 50+ point player. If he wasn't 30 with 5 years left on his deal, I'd actually be interested. If it was even just 3 years, I'd say Shero should go for it (if it weren't for the expansion draft coming up anyway). Remember that even though it's Toews, it's still a bad contract so (assuming Shero isn't an idiot) acquiring him would mostly just cost cap space.

I'm down just because I like the idea of Nico and Nino on the same line. Cangi will have fun with that one.
