Elias on the move ?!?!?
NY Post is reporting sources saying a possible move involving Elias for Tanguay and Skoula is brewing…
what a shocker as Elias is supposed to be their forward anchor. The article cites the Devils’ monetary problems which Lou Lamoriello denied in another interview last week.
Wow, one day you hear something and the other a totally diffirent story.
I, as a die hard Devils fan, think that we NEED some help scoring… with that being said who do we get and for what!?!?!?
As much as I love our defensive corps it maybe time to part with one of our commodities…. Scott Niedermayer. Other than Stevens and Rafalski (and Tverdovsky whom we just acquired) Niedermayer is the one pin we can bargain with and get a second line scoring punch person. I dont see much we can trade up fron without sacrificing therefore trading a dman might make sense.
I also think that if we cannot resign Niewendyk we should package him (along with Danton) to a playoff team and get that missing piece of the puzzle.
We also need to replenish Holik’s absence (McKenzie and Stevenson are not cutting it), someone who can be a regular 2nd/3rd liner and has the fire and grit…..ala Tucker, Harvey, Corson, etc…
Anyone have any comments?!?!?
