The New Jersey Devils appear to be out of the NHL playoffs for the third straight season. They are currently on a three game losing streak and with just eight games left to in the regular season, what players will be traded before the start of next year?
General manager and interim head coach Lou Lamoriello understands his position and knows that the red and black desperately need a goal scorer to help boost the club. The Devils have a core built around young defenseman that have been improving all season long; Adam Larsson (22), Damon Severson (20), Jon Merrill (23), and Eric Gelinas (23).
If those four players remain together than New Jersey has a very bright future ahead of them in term of young talent. However, if Lamoriello wants to acquire a goal scorer one of them may need to be traded. Defender Gelinas knows this as well as all of the players on the locker room.

"If we do stay together, great, but there's always a possibility of a change of address," Gelinas said. "I personally went through it in juniors quite often. I know what it feels like. Hopefully we'll stay together. If not, I guess that's part of the business."
