NJD fans on the next board over tryin to spin this for a win because they now have cap space?!?!

Palmeri and Zajac for a let first. Are you kidding me.

Also some perennial ahl crap throw in to make the bodies balance out.

Lamorello just took the league to school

The best endorsement of the deal is "I can't complain" from a devils fan, not sure how we're spinning it.

I would have been ok if he threw in a Ladd or Komarov

Zajac should thrive under Trotz, Palms adds nice scoring depth. Hope you guys win it.

We’re a much better team then we were before. This depth pushes some crap out of our line up and adds more scoring through it. Also two players Lameriello knows well and more importantly knows will fit in. Great trade for us.

After acquiring Zajac (50% of $5.75M) & Palmieri (50% of $4.65M) & adding $5.2M of Annual Cap Hit, #Isles now have $3.1M of Annual Cap Space remaining in their LTIR Pool w/ 23 active players (+1 on IR)


Could still add a little depth if they wanted to. Or go full YOLO and get BUF to retain 50% on Hall and send back Komarov

100% Cpt. Any idea what our cap space looks like now? I can’t figure poop out on my phone. Man this is huge though.

Thank you. I see the devils being a force in a year or 2 they have a good young core.

I actually think it's a fair trade for both sides. Devils probably got other offers for Palmieri that weren't a 1st rounder. They got that from the Isles...but for the additional price of Zajac. While that's a steal for the Isles, if you're the Devils, what's Zajac really worth to you anyway for the rest of this season? Might as well get that first rounder instead of, say, a 2nd and 3rd for Palmieri and maybe a 3rd for Zajac.

If anyone should be mad, it's not Isles and Devils fans...it's probably other GMs looking to sell. If you're Buffalo trying to trade Hall for a 1st rounder, the first thing another GM is probably going to say is, "Cool, so, who else are you giving us for that?"

No doubt. One nice thing about trading with NJ is Palm and Zajac are probably being driven via car service to the island as we speak. Can’t wait to see what lines Trotz comes up with!!
