Ryane Clowe signs with the Devils. 5 years. 4.85 per.

Not entirely thrilled. Christ, this could be bad. Injury history. Couldn't be better spent?

Too much for a guy who struggled to SCORE  last year.

 

 

Looks like Clarkson won't come back...

I like it better then locking up Clarkson. But one million too much.

Honestly, I might rather have had Clarkie at 5.5 than this...

Well, we still have 8 million via capgeek. Hopefully, we can get a scorer like Brunner.

Like signing clowe, however 4.85m is a tad too much for me but can be lived with.

Summary of his interview:

 

NJ pushed hardest right from the start.

 

Wanted to play in the East.

 

NJ stepped up, other teams may have had concerns with injuries.  5 year term sealed it.

A little too much and a little too long, so that's normal for an UFA.

Clowe may fit in nicely for the Devils so we will see how it goes.

Clowe got crazy unlucky last year. 0 goals on 65 shots. He's better than Clarkson and got less coin

Plus, he loves New York.

 

Heard the rumours about him coming to Jersey and was really curious about the terms he would get... Wow, this is a lot. The concussion stuff scared teams away and we give him five years. And at almost 5M per... One just can't say this is a good deal with a straight face. Like Clowe coming here, I hope he's gonna be good, but we're taking a huge risk here.

stop it with the 3 goal nonsense, his best season was not that long ago. If he stays healthy maybe he can be a real asset for this team. Lets see what happens.

 

 

BTW, Devils spent over 16 million this week. We are broke. :giggle:

Off the cuff this seems way to long for way too much bread

According to TG Toronto out of Clarkson bid, Other teams are starting to realize he plays well in our system but will he play well in theirs and 6mil, allegdly worth?

Pretty much where I am on this.  On the surface it seems questionable.
