Yikes, I like Sal but anything over two years is ridiculous. Bye bye Zach :(

You think we are looking to trade one of our defensemen? We have a huge log jam on D right now.

Salvador-Zidlicky
Volchenkov-Greene
Tallinder-Fayne
Larsson

Fayne got qualified so he will be back regardless and even with his injury he wont miss much if anything. I think they gotta trade either greene or tallinder. Larsson cant be the healthy scratch again this season. Too much potential for that

Literally no way they don't now. The alternative is they're sending Larsson down or Fayne is worse than we're letting on.

Sadly, I do think this is what happened to Scott Gomez. I think he's a guy who's not all that smart, and got pushed into his Ranger contract by a variety of parties, and wound up believing a lot of nonsense that even fans knew wasn't true. If he had it to do over again, I think he finds a way to make it work in NJ.


Gomez knew he was gone before he even got to free agency. I'm not so sure the Devils even offered him anything? I don't think it's fair to say that the guy isn't that smart. Is he a wise-ass? Hell yeah. But that doesn't mean he isn't smart.

No, quite the opposite. Sal could have gotten much more on market. Lou has an internal budget so he needed to keep year 1 low to fit Parise in so he adds the 3rd year to give Sal total $ he wanted.

Parise now is in a position to turn his back on basically entire team or return! I'm more confident then ever Parise is returning and hearing Marty of WFAN this morning all but assures it.

Salvador signing has no impact on Zach besides showing him the locker room will be the same as it was when they were 2 games away from a cup. I do agree that it seems a trade is in order on D. Having depth is good and all, but we have depth with the young kids like Urbom, Gelinas, and even Corrente who has shown to be serviceable in short stints. Green probably has the most value due to his 3 mil cap hit.

Zach and Salvador are largely independent. Salv's deal doesn't have any implication on Zach's.

NJ's offer to Zach has been out there to him before they signed Salvador. To our knowledge, the Devils haven't withdrawn their offer.

Marty's said for a while that he thinks Parise is going to re-sign. The Pens side thinks he's going there, the Wild side thinks he's going to Minnesota, our players and writers think he is going to re-sign here.

We are reading too much into everything now.

Salvador said he's "too close" to situation with Parise to say much about it, but believes there is still a chance Parise will re-sign.

Salvador said he has spoken to Parise and texted with him throughout the process. Didn't want to say more.

mmmm......

nobody from the team that went through it all left, except poni but that's fine, so parise has to feel obligated to stay and lead the team back to the finals.
