The last time an elite Devils UFA took forever to make up his mind, we were left with Vlad Malakhov and Dan McGillis as a contingency plan.
I know 99% of what happened then doesn't apply here, but still, these tweets saying Zach is torn over the possibility of leaving New Jersey make the Nieds drama come to mind. Sorry if this is a Debbie Downer post.
No the last time that happened we wound up with arbitration, two contracts and the loss of two draft picks - but still got the player back lol.
But yeah I do get the feeling Zach's looking for a way out but feels trapped. Then again I never thought Kovy was staying either
