Modest Trade Proposals for the New Jersey Devils: Targeting Travis Dermott

Modest Trade Proposals for the New Jersey Devils: Targeting Travis Dermott

Photo by Kevin Sousa/NHLI via Who wouldn’t want a player coming off his ELC, but with over 150 regular season games of NHL experience under his belt? One with upside still at only 23 years old? Tom Fitzgerald should take a look at acquiring Travis Dermott. Today at All About the Jersey, I will attempt to provide a 6th modest trade target that the New Jersey Devils could look to acquire this offseason. Four of the five writers before me targeted defensemen, and for those of you who were looking for a different approach today, you’re sadly going to be disappointed. I agree with...

Modest Trade Proposals for the New Jersey Devils: Targeting Yanni Gourde

Modest Trade Proposals for the New Jersey Devils: Targeting Yanni Gourde

Photo by Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via A lot of this week’s trade hypotheticals have centered around improving the defensive group, but the Devils also need help at forward and the cap space to take on some money to do that. Yanni Gourde is a good player currently underutilized on a cap-strapped Tampa team. He presents an opportunity for the Devils to acquire a talented forward without sending too much in the other direction. As our week of hypothetical trades rolls on, we shift gears today to look at the possibility of acquiring a forward instead of a defenseman. For this, we...

Modest Trade Proposals for the New Jersey Devils: Targeting Vince Dunn

If the Devils do acquire Vince Dunn, either he or MacKenzie Blackwood is getting a new jersey number. | Photo by Bruce Bennett/ Continuing this week’s series, we turn our focus to a cap strapped St. Louis Blues team with our eyes on adding defenseman Vince Dunn to the New Jersey Devils. As Dunn is an RFA, it will be difficult if not impossible for the Blues to keep both him and UFA Alex Pietrangelo. We look today at a deal that could help both teams out. We continue our week-long look at potential, realistic trade targets here at All About the Jersey today with perhaps a loftier...

Modest Trade Proposals for the New Jersey Devils: Targeting Olli Määttä

Modest Trade Proposals for the New Jersey Devils: Targeting Olli Määttä

Photo by Dave Sandford/NHLI via Taking a cue from John’s Monday post, I look at the Devils potentially targeting a slightly higher-profile player from the Blackhawks — two-time Cup Champ, Olli Määttä Yesterday, Brian took my idea and decided to target a Erik Cernak — a very good young defender that is going underused because his team, Tampa, (who can’t pay him) has blueliners even more talented. So I looked for another cash-strapped team interested in dumping cap hit, preferably with some defenders worth pilfering and landed on Chicago, only to recognize that John did that on...
