More on Charlie Coyle

+

NHL.com did a feature on Coyle. Among the heavy praise sprinkled throughout the article, it notes that Coyle had outstanding results at the Combine in both strength and endurance categories. I know the Combine doesn't mean a lot in hockey, but it was still pretty impressive and speaks to his physical maturity.

Patrick Sharp was not available

+

If you scroll to the middle of the article, there's a little bit about which players Chicago is trying to move. For those who wanted to bring Sharp, not Arnott, to the Devils it seems that the Hawks were not entertaining offers for Sharp. All of the forwards they are trying to move, in fact, are wingers.

Matt Cooke re-signs - implications for Clarkson?

3

Matt Cooke re-signs for 3 yrs, $5.4 million. He is a 31-year-old agitator and has scored about 10-15 goals and 15-20 assists in 3 out of the last 4 seasons (the ones in which he played close to 80 games). A pretty consistent 30 points and really stepped up his agitating role for Pittsburgh with 100+ PIMs the last two seasons. Clarkson is just 26, scored 32 pts to go with 164 PIMs in 82 games two years ago and 24 pts with 85 PIMs in 46 games last season. Are these two players comparable at this stage in Clarkson's career? How much money is Clarkson's seemingly-impending scoring breakout worth? Does it also matter that Clarkson is an RFA? Seeing what Matt Cooke got, what do you think Clarkson should / will get?

Eklund's Most Outrageous Rumor Yet

20

Sensational. Hilarious. Won't happen. But I'd consider it if the Caps are also sending Varlamov or Neuvirth. A Semin-Kovalchuk combination? You could put Andrew Peters at center in between those two and they'd still score.

Could Patrice Bergeron be our #2 Center?

There is no current rumor linking the Devils to Bruins' center Patrice Bergeron, but there are rumors out there that Bergeron could be traded this summer and I thought it would be fun to think...

Is Free Agency a Sucker's Game?

I have a personal philosophy regarding free agency, and I'm curious to hear what people have to say about my line of logic. The nature of free agency is that, for the most part, it's a...

Lou focusing on Martin, not Kovalchuk

19

"We certainly continue to talk, and whatever can be done will be done," Lamoriello told ESPN.com. "But certainly things have to be realistic and the concept of the overall picture. But Paul we'd like to keep. Kovalchuk, in all fairness to him, did a great job for us. We'll see what happens."

What would you give for Kaberle?

Brian Burke made it known that he is listening to trade offers for star defenseman Tomas Kaberle.  The asking price is "either a first-round draft pick, or a young player capable of immediately...

Spend to the Max?

John has done a great analysis on Ilya Kovalchuk and the free agent centers who could conceivably be targets for the Devils, but a question which really needs to be considered first is, "Should the...
