Devils and Hell

Last season, the New Jersey Devils had a great run but were stopped in the second round because their goalkeeping was inconsistent. They were missing a top goalie. Now, there are rumors that the Devils are interested in getting Connor Hellebuyck. If they can get him, they would instantly become strong contenders for the Stanley Cup.
Here's the proposed trade:

The trade involving Connor Hellebuyck going to the Devils could be a big deal for both teams. The Devils would get an experienced goalie, and the Jets would get a reliable goalie, a promising young player, and an extra draft pick.
The Devils' current goalie, Vitek Vanecek, had good stats last season, but they're not amazing. He would fit well with the Jets and could take over from Hellebuyck when the time comes.

A High Price

The real prize in this trade is Holtz, a talented player who has had limited opportunities to shine with the Devils. In Winnipeg, he would get more playing time and could become a valuable asset for the Jets.
The Jets would also get a late first-round draft pick in 2024, which is still valuable despite its position in the draft.
The Devils are giving up a lot in this trade, but they would be getting an outstanding goalie in return. Hellebuyck is known for consistently performing well in a lot of games. Last season, he had a save percentage of .920, which is very impressive considering the number of games he played.
If the Devils can get Hellebuyck, it could help them achieve their dream of winning the Stanley Cup.
