Well...certainly no more cap space problems.

Is this team really that..um...scary/imposing though?

(We should've acquired Burns...that's just my opinion though. And let Greene go)


the devils didn't have the assets to get burns. san jose gave up more.

This. Nothing against the Greenie monster, but we need to free space (roster and cap) to get the kids in and give us flexibility for the guys who are going to be UFA, so why keep him? Is he really worth more than White? Especially since we're essentially paying him an extra million when you factor in what we're paying White when we buy him out?

He might be worth about the same as White next year - although White has only managed 80 games twice, whereas I think Greene has never been injured since coming into the NHL, so that probably tips the scales in favor of Greene. He's certainly worth more than White going forward - White probably has 2 years left as a full-time NHL defenseman, maybe less if he suffers a serious injury this season.

Especially since we're essentially paying him an extra million when you factor in what we're paying White when we buy him out?


I don't think the Devils anticipated that they would have to buy White out.

That's fair, though I think White's value is slightly higher because he plays physical. If we add Larrson or Corrente, we're fine in that department. I feel less confident with Urbom or especially Tao.

I don't think the Devils anticipated that they would have to buy White out.


What changed this?

I can't speak for Tri, but maybe he was implying that the Devils expected someone to claim White on waivers.

The bad moves just keep adding up. What a great trade for Rolston.

The Kovy signing continues to be the bad move that continues to snowball.

no, i think they expected there to be a trade market for white. but with someone like scott hannan still an unrestricted free agent, that market hasn't materialized.

We should have a pool. Everyone chips in a buck to guess how long Manta goes between poo-pooing the Kovy deal. Whoever gets the closest days between posts wins the pot.

A little bummed about White. I just figured out his new nickname:

Sorry about that; my fault on misrepresenting your ideas.

Edit: I thought you were saying that you felt the Devils wouldn't have to buy White out even after putting him on waivers. My bad. :doh1:

Mantaray is always pessimistic, but I cant hate on him cause he named himself after a pixies song.
Being the realist I am, all I can say is that this season will be very interesting (lot of rookies,new coach,parise,ilya,captain,etc...".
