Now Commenting On:

Now, Plan B is a must. The Devils have lost their captain, leader and best player to free agency, or better known as the Minnesota Wild.

It's not time to start panicking, but the Devils must flip to the next page and begin life after Parise. So, what's next for the Devils?

The Devils could go after Alexander Semin. Mostly likely, the third best player in free agency.  Hard to say if the Devils want to spend money on a player like Semin, but teaming up with his Russian friend Ilya Kovalchuk is not a bad idea. His numbers have gone down lately but he's still capable of producing a 70-point season.

There's also Andrei Kostitsyn, who the Devils could sign to replace Alexei Ponikarovsky.

Another option for the Devils could be trading for Ales Hemsky. He's on the trading block but his $5 million salary cap will be tough to sell.

Petr Sykora wants to return to the Devils and now that Parise is gone, it looks like Sykora will be res-signed by the Devils. A one-year deal at the most.

I don't want to start any speculations here, but what would the Devils need to give up to bring Rich Nash or Bobby Ryan to New Jersey. Would the Devils be willing to trade Josefson, Tedenby or Greene and a prospect for one of those guys. They did that when Kovalchuk was on the market. The Devs have Eric Gelinas and Jon Merrill in their system.
