Now it is already suspect that Parise may not be back with the team next season but it seems like the Devils may not be able to afford him for the rest of the season. So it may seem that the Devils might have to trade Parise for draft picks to ease up on some one the payroll.
This is troubling news for the Devils because there is no doubt that Zach Parise will bring in revenue next season should he resign but could really hurt the team off the ice should he depart. Definitely give this a read.

The Devils acquired Alexi Ponikarosky for prospect Joe Sova and a 4th round pick in this year's draft. He will be in the lineup this afternoon when the Devils play the Philadelphia Flyers. Alexi will play on the 3rd line with Jacob Josefson and David Clarkson. To make room for him on the roster the Devils have sent Mattias Tedenby down to Albany.
I think this is a great trade for the Devils and hopefully will give the Devils 3 solid lines that can score on a consistent basis. Ponikarovsky is a great depth player whose contract expires at the end of this season. If things workout for him in New Jersey hopefully he'll resign again.
As per Bob McKenzie, The New Jersey Devils claim center Ryan Carter. Carter was placed on waivers earlier this week by the Florida Panthers. This move was definitely made to fill the spot left vacant due Jacob Josefson's injury. He will join the team in Phoenix and may play Thursday against the Coyotes.
