DD, the dork is Kevin Epp, right???

Geez, it almost makes me want to bring Meehan back...OK, maybe not.

When I saw the "We're open for business" tag on the thread title, I Kind of imagined a scene like one of those local furniture stores "Hi, I'm Crazy Bob and our prices are INSANE!!!"

"Hi I'm Krazy Kevin and for the INSANE price of $7.8 million..."

The stock market floor idea was another great idea never to be used. :saddevil:

But Keenan is a coach who will play these two guys all the minutes they want. He loves vets. So it's a good fit for them - I can't say whether it will vastly improve Florida or not. But they'll play as much as they want.

2.25 mil each per year. I think that's a little bit over paid. But then again, Newy's leader ship is probably worth that, and in order to get him the Panthers had to agree to get Roberts for the same price too. Good move though by Keenen, get some vetern leadership in there for his young team.

If you think about it, it's more than half of what Elias is getting. It still doesn't seem right - still too high. But if Keenan wants to pay it...he'd better hope it works out. Because I just remember the days when he was spending money like a crazy man in St. Louis for absolutely NOTHING.

He is trying to infuse leadership into his locker room. Not bad for 2 solid guys who are still capable players.

That's a $2M reduction in salary for Roberts and a raise of $250,000 for Nieuwendyk

a combined 4.5 mil for 2 burned out players who will play 40 games but provide leadership in those 4 games.

genius iron mike. when you should have gone for proven defense you went the typical route of burned out leader good job.

hopefully some of their leadershpi will trasnfer over to the rest of hte locker room.

p.s. 5 bucks says either roberts or nieuwy are the new captain upon arrival.

Hahahaha...long overdue. Now they need to get rid of Jacobs.


The problem is, NJ only plays them 4 times a year. We were only able to get them to trade JT and fire the idiot GM. If we played them 8 times a year, maybe Jacobs might have an epiphany and sell the team.

For such a young team, I think this is step in the right direction by Keenan. You can help talent bloosom through strong leadership.

All they need is a veteran defensemen to help develop the backline.

Ugh. That is just awful. Sue, Keenan isn't the coach. That job falls on Jacques Martin. True. Florida needs leadership. But this reeks of a Rangeresque kind of move. Man.
