Trade grades: Devils make major strides, Bolts go all-in

  Trade grades: Devils make major strides, Bolts go all-in This has been a season full of changes for the New Jersey Devils. The team entered the year as a hopeful contender after a flurry of offseason moves, but it has been firmly situated near the bottom of the standings for most of the campaign. Head coach John Hynes and general manager Ray Shero, who both were with the team since 2015, were fired in December and January, respectively, and it appears the Devils are looking to build for the future with Tom Fitzgerald as GM.Approaching his first trade deadline, Fitzgerald made two big moves Sunday. Let's break them down from the perspective of each team involved.

Just a few hours after reports emerged that the New Jersey Devils had traded forward Blake Coleman to the Colorado Avalanche, the forward has officially been dealt -- however, not to Denver. TSN’s Darren Dreger was the first to report that Coleman has been traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Dreger adds that the return for New Jersey is a 2020 first-round pick and forward prospect Nolan Foote. The first-rounder will be the Vancouver Canucks’ pick acquired in the J.T. Miller trade, rather than the Bolts’ own selection.

At first glance, it is clear that the Lightning paid a hefty price in this exchange. Not only did Tampa give up a first-round pick, and the likely higher pick of the two they owned, but Foote was also their first-round selection just last year and the top forward in the pipeline. The big winger, who is the son of former NHLer Adam Foote and brother of Bolts prospect Cal Foote, already has pro size and is continually developing a next-level skill set and hockey IQ. Foote, the captain of the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets, has scored at more than a point-per-game pace this season and also added five points in seven games at the World Junior Championship. Foote looks ready to help an NHL team sooner rather than later, and the Devils will now be the club to reap that reward.

Golden Knights interested in Erik Gustafsson

  Golden Knights interested in Erik Gustafsson Vegas is not done trying to retool its lineup as it looks to Chicago for another steady veteran.The 27-year-old picked up 60 points last season to finish sixth in the NHL in scoring by a defenseman. However, he hasn’t been anywhere near as productive this year; although he leads all Chicago blueliners in points, he only has 26 points in 58 games. He recently admitted that his contract situation – he’s a pending unrestricted free agent – has weighed on him this year.

The trade deadline is Monday, and the Lightning made a move over the weekend to acquire veteran forward Blake Coleman from the New Jersey Devils . The Lightning gave up forward Nolan Foote and the Vancouver Canucks' 2020 first-round draft pick (previously acquired by Tampa Bay)

New Jersey devils have traded Blake Coleman to the Tampa Bay lightening in exchange for a 1st round pick (from Vancouver) and prospect Nolan Foote.

However, the metrics of production versus pay may help to explain why Coleman commanded such a sizable cost and why he might be a crucial addition for the cap-strapped Lightning. Coleman is in the second year of a three-year, $5.4 million deal he signed with the Devils. That means he is making just $1.8 million against the cap this season and next. At that value, the 28-year-old has recorded 21 goals and 31 points through 57 games this season, his second 20-goal campaign in a row. Not only that, but Coleman is also an intelligent two-way player who brings physicality and poise with his defensive game. Coleman has been one of New Jersey’s best players this season, and his addition to a deep Lightning lineup makes for an embarrassment of riches in Tampa. After a shocking first-round sweep last season, the 2019 President’s Trophy winners are loading up in hopes of ensuring that such a collapse does not occur again.

Death of Raphaël Coleman from "Nanny McPhee": why we no longer saw him at the cinema

 Death of Raphaël Coleman from © UNIVERSAL Death of Raphaël Coleman from "Nanny McPhee": why we no longer saw him at the cinema The news deeply saddened fans of the famous movie Nanny McPhee. Raphaël Coleman, who played the role of the young Eric Brown, died suddenly at the age of 25. After shining on the big screen, the adventurer had decided to leave the movie sets to devote himself to his new passion ... Raphael Coleman is no more.

The New Jersey Devils have traded forward Blake Coleman to the Tampa Bay Lightning for a package that includes prospect Nolan Foote and a Along with the 19-year-old Foote, the Devils received the Vancouver Canucks’ conditional first-round pick that the Lightning originally received for

the Lightning traded for forwards Blake Coleman and Barclay Goodrow.[27][28] They also signed Zach Bogosian whose contract had been terminated by the Buffalo Sabres during the season.[29] During Phase 2 ^ " Lightning acquire Blake Coleman from Devils for Nolan Foote, first-round pick".

TVA’s Renaud Lavoie, who had reported earlier Sunday that a Coleman deal to Colorado was done, maintains that the Avalanche as well as the Boston Bruins were in the running for the versatile forward until the end. It’s fair to assume that the cost of beating the Bolts’ offer likely proved to be too much for either squad. It will be interesting to see if either team circles back to New Jersey to discuss another term forward in Kyle Palmieri, or if that asking price – probably even higher – will be too much as well.

While Foote sticks out as the most impressive piece heading to the Devils, it is worth noting that New Jersey now has three first-round picks in June: their own, the Arizona Coyotes’ pick from the Taylor Hall trade and now Vancouver’s pick via Tampa. The Devils also added a second-round pick earlier in the day from the New York Islanders in exchange for veteran defenseman Andy Greene. With Palmieri possibly on the move and a Sami Vatanen even more likely to be dealt (Travis Zajac and Wayne Simmonds are also names on the rumor mill), the Devils are not done making moves and could land at least one more first-round pick before the trade deadline passes next week.

What the Puck: Time has arrived for GM Bergevin to blow up Canadiens

  What the Puck: Time has arrived for GM Bergevin to blow up Canadiens I was walking down Sherbrooke St. in N.D.G. Monday morning when a pal yelled at me from his car on the other side of the street. “They gotta blow this team up,” he said. And he’s right. My friend, by the way, is one of those super-positive Montreal Canadiens fans who always manages to find a silver lining and if he can’t find one, that’s all you need to know about this utter failure of a season for the Habs. They are going to miss the playoffs again. That’ll make it three consecutive years and four of the last five.
