Well the trade deadline is here and I will be glued to the NHL network starting at Noon, to see what is going to happen and where the Devils will land after all the dust settles.
Some things that are for sure, well at least that is what we are hearing, are that Neidermeyer and Pronger are going nowhere. On the other hand Derek Morris, Bill Guerin, Nik Antropov, Dominic Moore, Mark Recchi are all heading to new teams.
Players still up in the air are Ryan Smyth, Michael Nylander, Jay Bouwmeester, Oli Jokinen, Tomas Kaberle, Doug Weight and Martin St. Louis.
Then their are all the players who were put on waivers yesterday, Brendan Morrison, Miroslav Satan, Gary Roberts and Jon Sim, just to name a few. What will happen with them?
As for the Devils, what is their next move after picking up Nicolas Havelid the other day from Atlanta?
Will Clemmensen be traded or is their no interest from teams? Would Lou trade him to an eastern contender? Or will Weekes be the on who gets traded?
Will the Devils land another forward, hopefully a second line center?
Will Madden still be a New Jersey Devil after 3pm?
Will Greene, Gionta, Mottau, Zubrus and or Pandolfo be traded?
Well all we can do is sit back and let the deals unfold and trust that Lou will put us over the top as the top cup contender in the east!
- With their 3-2 overtime win last night aginst the Leafs and losses by Boston and San Jose, the Devils are now only six points behind the league leading Sharks and Bruins. Four teams are tied for the league lead with42 victories (Boston, San Jose, Detroit and the DEVILS!)
