I think that's a very reasonable deal for our 1C for the foreseeable future.

Can't hate those terms. Well done, Lou and Travis just sold a lot of jerseys.

Lamoriello says he does not plan to talk contract extension with Elias or Clarkson during the season but "they know what we think of them."

I guess he wasn't cool enough to have Dany Heatley recruiting him too. Probably could've gotten more than $5.75 on the open market so I'm not complaining

This is just the kind of news I needed. It makes me happy to see one of our great players want to stay a Devil. :boogie:

This is definitely a situation where I believe we could have seen a stupid GM throw 5 years / 6-6.5m his way on the open market.

So glad he's signed long term.

good cap hit but he'd had to stay a steady 60-70pts guy down that road or it would have been a liiiiiiittle too high

#Devils Travis Zajac no trade 8yrs 46M deal. No more front loaded money. Case in pt. 1st yr 3.5M. 2 yr 5M, 3rd-6th yr 6.5M. Last two 5.75M.

And that's how a contract should look, imo.

(...it's a damn shame Zach's contract didn't take him one more freakin year to the new CBA)

I was thinking the same thing! I still need to find a way to get rid of my Parise jersey or have the stuff changed.

Well the Devils finally gave something back to the fans...who would have ever guessed it would be Zajac's autograph on a max length deal?

I know Zajac denied becoming the next captain, but he does have the locker of Zach (and Langs before him). Now that Trav is locked up, he makes a good case for captain.

Then again, lockers probably mean nothing and we should just be happy that we have a #1 Center for a long time

Yeah, what does that dipsh!t Lou know about anything? What a zilch he is. If only he scoured more message boards, he'd have a better handle on how to do his job.

If you don't think his routine of waiting until 7/1 to resign our own guys has cost us players....I don't know what to tell you.

who have we lost recently besides Parise which was a stupid/dopey/unique situation in the last 5 years?
