if all 3 of those players are signed, stevens may very well not be coming back.

Honestly I didn't expect Stevens to come back - and even if he did it would not be the Stevens we all remember. :(

I still expect Scotty to come back, he's in game shape. i've seen him myself personally. He looks great. :wub:

Well i guess these aren't bad signings, but I expect to see a trade, we have oooodles of defensemen.

So White, who else and a draft pick for Thornton and Boynton?

haha.

I don't think we have oooodles.

White-Rafalski

Martin-Matvichuk

Malahkov-McGillis

extra-Hale, Brown

Brown should be Albany fodder.

Your assuming Stevens doesn't come back. From everything I've read, I don't think Brown was a two way deal, why waste that salary?

Quite possibly the worst D lineup the devs have had in a decade.

Well some good news to go with today's bad news.

But too bad, I always wanted to remember McGillis as the guy who let Elias lift his stick and then stuff in the series-winner back in 2000.

We deffinently shouldve made more signings when better players were availible. I know we had to save money for what we offered nieds but he kinda screwed us right now and even in the long run.

According to Stan,

If Stevens comes back he is going to be used like Dano in his last season.

If this is true, then I am really going to be happy!

This was my birthday wish if we didn't sign Nieds.

Quite possibly? I'd say by far and away the worst d-lineup.

On paper it could be the worst since the 90-91 devils. If i remember right they had driver, kasatonov, weinrich, daneyko and fetisov. the following year they had stevens so i would definitely say that D was better than this years.

Maybe Lou has some fine print added in the new NHL rules that says:

"Rule LL007: If Niedermayer is signed on another team the NJ Devils are allowed to play with 7 players at all times. The 7th player on the ice must be a defenseman."

It would be about the same to have Hale, Brown and Mcgillis on the ice as having Nieds.

everyone knows that a d corps without stevens and niedermayer will be worse than any d corps we've ever had.
