It appaers I'm talking to a rock here..
When will you start to realise that it matters that we and other rebuilding teams (like Arizona) are not in the same stage of their respective rebuilds? Why did Arizona make those deals for all those picks? Because their farm system sucks and they desperately need prospects... Now, is this the case as well in Jersey? No, we've got like a top 5 farm system already in place. If, at all, we'd be trading away picks to strengthen our NHL roster and not acquiring picks.
Furthermore, what is the main purpose of a rebuild? I'd say to change out your current team with (mostly) new, young, fresh players to be able to build a new core of the team. That's what Arizona is doing right now, but does that mean that that's what we are doing as well? No, it doesn't. Our core is set - more or less. We just need to add to said core (Hughes, Hischier, Bratt, Mercer, Sharangovich, Hamilton, Siegenthaler, Ty Smith, L. Hughes Holtz, 2022 2OA). And that's what we're going to do with aquiring more top end talent (hopefully) this offseason. So please, do finally realise that we're not in the phase you think we're at and that proposed deals like this one doesn't make any sense to us.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>STH</b></div><div>The devils aren't not building for the near future, their in a rebuild. and when teams are in rebuilds, they take contracts for the added pick. ill admit Mcleod is a bit much but Kassian isn't going there to be another Taylor hall, he's going there for the pick and to play a 4th line role.</div></div>
So last season the Devils handed out the biggest deal in FA, and this season once again we‘re linked to basically all top end free agents and trade targets (Gaudreau, Fiala, Debrincat, Campbell, …). Meanwhile, you‘re trying to convince me that we‘re „not building for the near future“. I‘m sorry dude, but you‘ve got no clue where the Devils are at in their rebuilding process and what their needs actually are.
But I can tell you, it‘s certainly not Kassian.
Oh and btw: You‘re massively overvaluing McLeod. He‘s a 4th liner. At best.
