    I can tell you he is not a Devils board regular and his views do not express the overall view of Devils fans

    I am not even remotely interested in this type of deal

    That's a fair enough assessment, but I'll counter by saying:

    - The point totals can be deceptive, considering the offenses on the two teams.

    - Devils need more solid shutdown defensive defensemen, not offensive defensemen.

    - Gardiner's probably due for a raise after this season, which doesn't fit nicely into the Devils future cap plans.

    - Bratt and Jacobs are cost controlled.

    - I'm interested in the potential of Bratt and, to a lesser extent, Jacobs.

    Perhaps I was too harsh on Gardiner (though he seems to be a whipping boy for a lot of your fans), but this doesn't make sense for the Devils imo.

    Toronto’s defence lost game 7. And I hate Jake Gardiner.

    He would've signed by now. He wants to stay.

    We want to move on.

    This is solid analysis.
    This is not.
    Ya, he picked a bad time for a bad game. But, some of it wouldn't have looked so bad had Andersen made a couple of makeable saves.

    Jake is a bit challenged defensively but he's very good on the O side of the puck. And very much has value.

    You can bet all that you own that JVR is leaving.

    It's not.

    Give this guy a break Leafs fans....that game 7 victory over Toronto is his Stanley Cup this season. Let him have his Leaf bashing therapy, without it he will have to deal with Tampa making his team their *****.

    Jvr leaving wouldn't be 'the worst' for leaf fans. After their comments of 'hes sheltered' and 'he's one dimensional' and 'he's only good infront of the net', it would be quite pathetic for them to be sad about him leaving. They are already saying kapanen and Johnson, two guys with less than 70 games of NHL experience, will replace a guy who scored half of that number this season.

    This is a way more sound analysis and I totally agree. Everyone is looking for those shutdown defenders as are we so they're tough to find. And Gardiner isn't a desirable asset with his pending UFA status next year. Hopefully we can find a better trade partner for Gardiner who is more ready to contend for a cup. Probably Pittsburgh or San Jose.

    Living the dream through another team (Tampa) = admitting that your team is inferior to mine. Good for you for admitting that.

    We lost, i admit it. Funny thing is you won't find me in a Boston Bruins thread saying things like "they had a 3-1 lead and we took them to game 7!! Derp Derp"....you know why? Because we lost....and it's over. Time to think about your team going forward.

    But as i said, if Leafs bashing gives you even 1 iota of happiness, then carry on.:thumbu:

    I'm not as high on Bratt as some Devils fan as he did appear overwhelmed the 2nd half of the season when he didn't have as much time and space. That being said, you don't trade a 19 year old who flashed like he did in the 1st half of the year for a defender with 1 year remaining on his contract. Jacobs doesnt matter in this deal and is more of a throw in.

    pass from Toronto, I think we should be trading Gardiner but I'd be looking for either the roster piece that we need (top pairing RHD) or non-roster assets that are liquid enough to make a subsequent trade (picks, prospects). I doubt that we get the first one, so I'd be looking for the 2nd, as mentioned by others we don't need a winger as we finally have scoring line spaces for our kids to compete for

    Value wise Bratt > any listed players

    Ability wise Bratt > any listed players aside from marleau (we’ll see by the end of next season, one going up one going down)

    But yeah, devils wouldn’t do this. Bratt really came out of nowhere and looked special at times this year, we aren’t trading a 19 year old who had a very successful rookie year for gardiner

    you do understand that posters on a Leafs chat board do not run the team, nor are the arbiters of line-up decisions....groupthink makes nothing so

    i never said it as "some sort of validation to back up [my] notion". i was responding to someone else who called me out on me "assum[ing] the worst when it comes to the Leafs". i was involved in two different conversations. you got them mixed up as one
