WATCH: Why the Devils shouldn’t trade goalie Keith Kinkaid this summer

The Devils shouldn’t trade goalie Keith Kinkaid a at least not at the market price set by similar goalie trades in recent history.On paper, a trade does make sense. Kinkaid is coming off a career season, where he proved he could handle a starting goalie’s workload while racking up 26 wins and helping the Devils reach the playoffs.Kinkaid also has one year left on his contract before he can become a free agent in the summer of 2019, so the Devils might only have a small window to move him.Kinkaid posts 2 shutouts at WorldsThe Devils also have Cory Schneider signed long-term, and as he showed in the postseason, he still has what it takes to be a No. 1 goalie.But all of that said, recent history has shown NHL teams won’t trade a ton for a backup goalie in order to make him a starter.aC/ The Rangers traded goalie Cam Talbot to the Edmonton Oilers for a second-round pick and a third-round pick, and the two teams swapped seventh-round picks.aC/ The Chicago Blackhawks traded goalie Scott Darling to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a third-round pick.
