I think the point I was trying to make in my hungover state is that Vancouver doesn’t have a Robert Thomas type asset to give up in any deal. I’d trade anyone outside of the core 4 for that guy. I’d even consider dealing Bo for him.
It was Thomas and Allen.

Demko is as much better than Allen as Thomas is to Gaudette or Virtanen.

The devils have a good not great goaltender in Blackwood and are rumoured to feel they need a better player between the pipes looking down the road. Allen is a depreciating asset.

Gaudette is still a young piece with high top end potential...not as high as Thomas but still high.

Id say its a comparable package from Van.

I wouldnt consider Bo available if it was only Hall comingg back. Hes a horse. If you said Bo, Demko and Looey for Hall and Jack Hughes then i get interested

Hall is going to want 10 x 7. Where is that cap space coming from?

I know you're right. I just want one mutherfucking cup already. If we won it I could go another 40+ years without one but this is getting rediculous

Yes - just one... that's not asking too much is it? Tiger didn't get to see one... DBM hasn't got much longer... ;) - Blobby's liver is only going to hold out so long - and any of use could get hit by a bus tomorrow - BUT - with that said, we're not quite ready to blow the wad for a run yet.

Obviously the key to any big acquisition is going to be getting rid of Loui.

I have a new theory - he's quietly agreed to retire after playing out this year, in exchange for not getting demoted. It's the only explanation for why he's still in the press box that I can think of.

I agree. Nothing happens with him soaking up 6 mill to eat popcorn

Here's an interesting discussion about the Kovalchuk situation.

Interesting tidbit from CapFriendly is that Kovie's cap hit remains after mutual termination, because its a 35+ contact. Loui's, theoretically, would not continue to count. One rumour I saw is that Kovie will mutually terminate after Dec. 15th.

Maybe Benning is waiting for the Kovie shoe to drop before mutual termination?

I can't see Loui wanting or accepting a mutual termination. He is getting a million a year (or whatever) to jet around first class, with all the perks of NHL travel, be away from the wife and 5 kids, crush beers with da boys, and look at puss all day..

Mutual termination doesn't happen until he spends quality time sitting alone in airports (in between the bus rides - with the broken heater) as he is called and recalled from Utica with repeated send downs. He should be going through waivers every 31 days. Not sure if his contract allows it, but if we can send him all the way down to Kalamazoo, then you have a chance at mutual termination..

DONE >>>> https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/dev ... prospects/
🚨#NJDevils NEWS: Taylor Hall and Blake Speers to ARI in exchange for a first-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft, third-round selection (conditional) in 2021, D Kevin Bahl and F Nick Merkley and Nate Schnarr
Pierre LeBrun
There's a hard 1st-round pick in the Hall trade PLUS another conditional 1st-round pick IF the Coyotes re-sign Hall AND win a playoff round. The conditional pick becomes a third-round pick if neither of those things happen. And a 2nd-round pick if one of those 2 things happen
