Lamoriello wouldn’t discuss the status of the team’s other restricted free agents, saying he’d probably have an update by the end of the week.

Would someone with knowledge of how it works explain to me why Henrique isn't eligible for arbitration?

Yep. He's just throwin' logic to the wind because no one honestly believes an RFA has leverage.

Still not signed. Not even reading this thread. Will we have to endure a season full of Henrique hates the Devils instead of actually thinking about hockey. How rare.

Well lets see. Kovy retired and left a big hole in the Devils offense

With Kovy retiring that freed up a lot of Cap money

Devils need offensive forwards

 

Doesn't that sound like leverage?

He's an RFA with no arbitration rights.  Henrique has absolutely NO leverage, regardless of who the Devils lost to FA/retirement this offseason.  What are his options other than holding out?  Is he going to play in the KHL, because that's the only leverage he could possibly hold over the Devils at this time (and we all know he's not going to go there - so does Lou).  Or maybe he wants to play for my beer league team and "retire" from the NHL in the process.  I can offer him the ability to play for free, and a 6 pack of Schlitz after every game.  Maybe I should call his agent and get the ball rolling on that.

 

He's likely deciding between a long term deal that may eat up some of his FA years, or a deal that takes him to his 1st eligible FA at a lower AAV.

That's is exactly where they are at a short vs long term deal.

'You are my puppy' is an instant classic. That will live in NJDevs lore.

Can you put "LD's puppy" in your signature?

This.

 

You are my puppy is going to go down as one of my favorite NJDevs insults ever.

Honestly I think I treasure every day we have with LD posting now. 

It took time for me to see, but this puts everything into perfect perspective instantly for new comers.

From what I just saw all the RFAs are now signed with the exception of Henrique and Kelly.

That's not really leverage. Henrique had a bad year offensively last year, and his best offense was on Kovy's wing.

So who's delaying the signing Lou or Henrique? I think Henrique and his agent.
