Devils looking for a move

A couple weeks ago I posted a message saying the Devils will soon have to make a deal to make room for a defensmen to come off the IR. No move has been made but I keep hearing for several sources of a Datsyuk for Gomez deal. Datsyuk has turned down several offers from the Wings of a long term deal. Gomez is making $5 million this year and is a UFA at the end of the year and will be looking for a deal. This move would help the Devils because they need cap room and Datsyuk is a great player even though it is considered a down year for him 7 goals 17 assists (24 points) in 31 games. Datsyuk is making $3.5 million this year and is also a UFA at the end of the season. Any team who gets him is taking a chance if he will stay or go at the end of the year. Right now this is the best option for the Devils unless they are unwilling to move Gomez.
