2nd Favourite Team

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>tsyls</b></div><div>I’ve had different discussions with different devils fans, some say that if the devils knew they couldn’t keep him, they’d move him for a package like Schmidt + Vesalainen and a 2nd. Schmidt is outperforming severson this year, but is older.
I think the devils would be smart to keep severson. Great player, I just thought that there was a chance of getting him since they just signed hamilton.</div></div>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Devsfan25</b></div><div>That trade is horrible for NJ. First off, Severson > Schmidt for a few reasons. Severson is 3 years younger, puts up better numbers, and his next contract will come in only a million higher than Schmidt most likely. Devils would be okay giving Sevo a 6yr deal at 7m. And Vesalainen doesn't add any value; he's a bust. Plus, Severson is one of the leaders on this young devils team. Tbh, any trade for Severson, the devils would probably ask for Ehlers just because how valuable RHD are rn. Not saying WPG would do that, but think that's where NJ would be looking.</div></div>
This is the off season where the Devils will know if they can re-sign him or not. Are you sure that you want to pay two RD guys 16M?
