Despite a small hiccup, the trade that would send Timo Meier to the New Jersey Devils was finally completed on Sunday evening. The details of the deal are as follows:
The New Jersey Devils today acquired forwards Timo Meier, Timur Ibragimov, defensemen Scott Harrington, Santeri Hatakka, goaltender Zachary Emond and a fifth-round pick (originally Colorado’s selection) in the 2024 NHL Draft via trade with the San Jose Sharks in exchange for New Jersey’s first-round pick in the 2023 NHL Draft (conditional), defensemen Shakir Mukhamadullin and Nikita Okhotiuk, forwards Andreas Johnsson and Fabian Zetterlund, a conditional second-round selection in the 2024 NHL Draft and a seventh-round selection in 2024. San Jose will retain 50% of Meier’s 2022-23 salary as part of the trade.
There is no extension for Meier as part of the trade.
It appears the trade sweepstakes for forward Timo Meier is down to two teams: the Vegas Golden Knights and New Jersey Devils. The Devils are reportedly the clear favorites, especially after the Carolina Hurricanes were informed they were out of the running. Darren Dreger of TSN writes, “Strong sense the Meier trade will go down in the next 24hrs.”
As per TSN’s Pierre LeBrun, “My understanding is that the Devils are among the teams still in it on Meier, but still work to be done and more talks scheduled for today… nothing done yet there.'” He added, “I believe the Sharks are down to two teams in the Timo Meier trade talks and my sense is those two teams are New Jersey and Vegas. So, still work to be done. Obviously a fluid situation, but I think that’s where things are at right now.”
Vegas traded for Ivan Barbashev earlier in the day on Sunday. They still have the cap space, but it seems less likely they are in the running after that deal.
David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period and NHL Network tweeted, “#SJSharks are grinding away at a Timo Meier trade and I’m told the #NJDevils are way ahead of the pack. #VegasBorn has been in the mix, but I’ve gotten pushback this AM. If there’s a mystery team, they’re doing a great job on keeping it quiet. SJ wants young players in a package.” Pagnotta is also reporting that he believes the Devils have discussed what an extension would look like with Meier, even though it has not been reported that the Sharks gave any team permission to speak with him about a new deal.
Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff notes, With the #Canes out on Timo Meier, look for them to attempt to add at multiple positions now. They’re still on the hunt for increased firepower and finishing touch. But they’ve made calls to teams in recent days looking for a left-shot defenseman to upgrade on D as well.”
