If this thing about a lower salary cap number from the NHL is true, how is that legal? It's still JVB's team until he doesn't get an investor. So therefore, why can't we sign whoever we want for whatever we want?


That's how I look at it as well. I don't see how the NHL can put a limit on anything here.

This whole thing will suck no matter what if #9 isn't in a Devils uniform next season.

Depending upon whom you believe, the NHL has been keeping the Devils afloat all season by fronting them $ that they were not yet entitled. If that's the case, the league most certainly has the power to control the purse strings.

The league said they fronted money to the Devils ahead of time but that the Devils would be owed that money by seasons end. The league also said this is not extraordinary.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

When it comes to money here is an interesting tidbit. Most teams get paid by local radio/tv stations to have get the rights to broadcast their games, and while the Devils are getting paid by MSG, they ARE PAYING WFAN to have their games broadcast.

Everyone has to relax, the media of course is going to make it sound like he's a leaving but remember the words that came out his mouth he wants to be here. If any GM is going to pull it off its Lou, all of you know this.....

Isn't Parise getting married in a couple weeks? I'm sure he wants to get this over with before that.

People wig out when its not done in an hour or two. We'll be lucky if we get an answer by tonight.

The fact that only the Wild are going to visit him says a lot I think. I just don't know if its good or bad...

Sadly folks he's as good as gone. I hope it is the Wild, and not the pens, so we don't see him so often. Out of all UFA's Parenteau/or Garrison is the only ones that intrigues me.

If the reports of him wanting $24m in signing bonuses (12 now, 12 next year) that's outrageous...he's as good as gone if that is true. Hopefully Lou is able to get Parenteau or Hudler in once Zach resigns elsewhere.

Can't understand why Devils fans are so nervous today. The entire fourth line has already been re-signed.


Is he sassing us? We don't need that sh!t right now.
