I would give up franzen, emmerton and a first for kovy. If you had to add another low prospect like a Ferraro so be it. Basically dump Johan's bad contract and swap it for kovy's bad contract. Who cares how much he makes, his cap hit is 6.6 which in today's market that's not too bad for an elite player. Yes it is long but so is franzens so I'd much rather kovy's contract than franzen cause hes twice the player. Do it!

I'd make that deal 10 times out of 10.. But if the devils are trying to dump a contract to lower their salery cap then I doubt they take on mule's 4 mill per season. Probly looking for a couple real promising prospects and a first round pick or more.

Totally agree but at the same time nj knows wherever they trade him almost all teams will have to shed some kind of money going back . I'm thinkin it wouldn't be a bad sell to the fans keeping parise and trading kovy for franzen because they can save money and bring a 30 goal scorer whos won the cup and will save the team not only almost 3 mill on the cap but even more off it because of how much kovy actually makes. Just a thought I guess but I'm with ya on you're view as well. Here's to hoping

Didn't Kovy need surgery this offseason, or was that Gaborik?

I would rather have Kovy than Parise but even as a salary dump he will be expensive

That's an interesting point, if we were taking Kovys ridiculous contract we could potentially rid ourselves of Franzens daft contract. This has moved me from the "no" side to sitting on the fence.

Mule is a bargain

It's not a Kenny Holland move to take a cap hit of 6.66 million for a player that will eventually be in his 40s. That's just stupid. We paid that much for Nick Lidstrom when he was still a Norris trophy contender. The only way he'd take that kind of a contract would be if it were an offer he could not refuse. Franzen for Kovy straight up. Wings get his crappy contract, Devils get a decent player with a history of being a big playoff performer. Plus they get an extra $3 million or so to put into Parise's pocket. Otherwise I don't think Holland would bite.

What about the line combinations?

Franzen + Howard + Ericsson/1st rounder

NJ is gonna look for a trading partner that would send them a scoring winger to take Kovy's spot in the line-up. Franzen is a given.

With Brodeur pretty much donezo after this contract, this is NJ's chance to grab a goaltender as well. This plus Lou's love for college players and the salary cap difference lead me to think another roster player earning a decent paycheck must be sent packing as well. Insert Jimmah.

The Wings are gonna want NJ to take a contract as well off their hands after all is said and done. Ericsson's contract is based on potential and if by mid-season he's still not showing progress, he seems the most suited.

The draft pick a tough one to call. NJ will have to forfeit their's this next draft so they'llbe looking to add one. After making the Finals, it makes ssense to predict their would-be first rounder won't be much different than Detroit's (knock on wood).

Disclaimer: I would do this trade only if Pavel was entering his prime instead of being on the wrong end of 30.

IF this were true (which it isn't but I'll play along) it would probably take something like:

Franzen, Kindl, Jurco, 1st rounder.

Really, do the Wings have a choice?

We really never replaced Raffie, now Lids is collecting a pension, and Stewie caught a plane out west, what are our options?

Other organizations KNOW we are in need and that will make the prices go up.... Supply and demand...

Next few days there will be a lot of hype, articles, and posts.... Make some popcorn and grab a chair folks, it is going to be an interesting ride.

i thought i read on hfboards they were looking to move kovalchuk AND praise so that they had no albatross contracts on the books and make the team more "sellable" to potential buyers. I can understand on one hand why an owner wouldn't want to purchase a team that owes millions of his money to a player he didn't agree to pay, but on the other hand, wouldn't you want to buy a team with players that can win? Idk how true any of this is, but if Nash, Kovy, Ryan are all out there I like our chances at nabbing one if necessary.

Considering Kovy is older (29) he shouldn't cost as much (and consider his contract). Having all 3 available should drive prices down as teams won't feel compelled to outbid each other in desperation.

You're a wizard Dylan!
