And with Zajac, Zubrus, Elias, and Clarkson all UFA next year, next offseason will be another barrel of laughs. I fvcking hate the offseason.


lol seriously. Today feels like a Game 7 of the playoffs with all that's riding on it, bigger really since today could impact us positively or negatively for years.

Yeah, I don't think I've ever been as nervous for July 1 as I am this year. It does almost feel like another elimination game.

yes and more than we may imagine. If we lose Parise then we have to replace his production. Through free agency there's no guy who can replace him and anyone close WILL BE an overpayment, its free agency. Then if we trade to get a guy we'll have to send roster players in order to replace a guy so youre losing a main guy plus others guys and picks.

if we lose Brodeur, we have to get a starter and same thing... we're not gonna get any gifts there UNLESS we get a cheap goalie who pull a Elliot/Smith.

Of course its not gonna be devastating and ruin the franchise but we'll be wound for awhile thats a guarantee

Nah, Clarkson will be signed to a $4 million multi-year deal that everyone'll hate before July 1. Winnipeg will be rumored to offer Zajac 10 years for $100 million, Elias will be rumored to have interest in the Rangers and Zubrus will be waiting around patiently like Salvador lol.

Not really worried about Clarkson and Elias so much, the kool-aid runs strong through their veins. Zubrus concerns me to a lesser extent. The one that really concerns me most is Zajac. And I'm sure he'll probably hit the market too, because Lou has some sick aversion to locking up extremely important pieces prior to July 1.

I would have said that about Elias too, until this goofball nonsense with Marty the last couple days and Zach looking like he's ready to turn his back after going way above and beyond the call of giving lip service to coming back. It's sad and telling that Clarkson's really the last guy I trust to want to run through a wall (exempting the fourth-liners, who'll do that anyway to stay in the league) to be loyal. Andy Greene too I suppose since he ostensibly turned down multiple higher offers to stay here.

Well at least Patty has always employed an agent, so there won't be some bombshell out of left field next summer like this sh!t with Marty. I think we should have Clarkson, Greene, and Patty sneak into Zach's room tonight and hook him up to a kool-aid IV while he's sleeping. :P

Where is this 7/50 offer coming from?


it was offered at the deadline - apparently zach would have taken it but his agents wanted him to wait until 7/1 because better offers would be there and the devils would raise their offer

Any remember what time Richards signed with the Rangers last year? Have to imagine it will only take Parise about that long tomorrow.


richards signed with NYR on 7/2

Too much speculation. Rumors and assorted other BS. Just want to know who is in our starting line up already. I wonder if Zach or Marty are up this late? Has all the bidding started yet?

That would be Buttmans wet dream along with Suter, I'm sorry I'm not a mean or spiteful person but if that happened,,,,, Maybe thats why we signed Cam for one shot at Cindy!

Just remember if the Devils match a Penguins or Wings offer for Parise, we'll prob be going nuts with that contract for 10 years when the Devils are paying $8 million for 24 goals when Zach is 34. He'll probably be never worth it here. The Penguins paying him a ton and having him with Crosby will work out so much better for them. Similar but at a much bigger scale than the Rafalski deal working with the Wings but being awful for Jersey.

Either way, I think I'll have to step away from the boards for a while if Parise leaves.
