Moose re-signs

36 posts in this topic

A source said Hedberg agreed to a two-year deal that gives him a slight raise from his salary of $1.25 million last season. The deal also includes a full no-trade clause—as did his previous two contacts with the Devils.

Can't edit the title but TG now confirming it's 1.4m over the 2 years.

Here's to our 83 year-old goaltender.

Edit: 'Scuse me. 79 right now. Not even 80!

The Devils must really be high on Wedgewood then... Locking up Marty and Moose for two years says the chair is there waiting for you, Son.

Pretty much tells you what LL thinks about the goalies in the system...guess he thinks anyone who has a shot is at least a year away, but more likely two.

My thoughts exactly. One more year for Wedge in juniors followed by a year in Albany is what I'd guess the plan is. After that, who knows?

I think this is more lockout protection for these guys. I think it would be pretty foolhardy to assume that any of the prospects will be NHL-ready this year.

RSC: Wedgewood isn't going back to juniors this year.

Well given the combined ages of the goaltenders, I think it's pretty safe to assume that one of the prospects will be called up this year and next. Whether it's for a length of time where they actually must play a game or two, who knows.

Wedgewood, Frazee, Kinkaid, and Clermont will be playing in the AHL or ECHL. According to what Lou said right after the draft, who plays where will be up to them. Sounds like he's gonna throw them in a room with a pointy stick like Joker did in the Dark Knight and see which one comes out.

I think even after this past season Moose has become my all time favorite backup......

Even better, I guess. Two years of professional experience and then it's between Wedge/Kinkaid/Frazee

I think he's a great team guy too, just the perfect backup. Hopefully he can cover for Marty's inevitable slow start like he did this past season.

Teammates love Hedberg and, in particular, he serves as a mentor to the young Swedes on the team.

I failed to mention this earlier, but I think bringing back Hedberg is invaluable for Devils. He has great relationship with Brodeur.

I did not see this coming....2 more years of Marty & Moose ?

OK, Moose's salary can be bought out easily.

But I can't see how our chances of success in the post-season have increased with these 2 signings.

/me thinks this year #30 over-achieved & I do not see it happening again in 9-10 months time....

This is EXACTLY what I had said a little while back about bringing back Hedberg. I know a lot of people don't think about it like that, but having a vet around to kinda be like a father figure to them, to mentor, to just help them adjust to life in the NHL and life in NJ for that matter. It's a big thing for these young guys, especially until they get the security of their first contract that has that 7th digit in it.
