Hasek had a bad final season in the NHL save percentage wise in 2008 and was bad in the postseason games he got into. He was pretty much washed up then, can't imagine what he'd look like now.

Kevin Allen posted his best 15 remaining free agents. The cupboard is obviously bare if Arnott is ranked #3 behind Doan and Semin....

A good plan would've been never signing barch, letting Sykora walk...and signing andrei kostitsyn. Perfect 3rd line RW for us

The Barch signing is so insignificant that I can't even really find a problem with it. Sure it's another contract, but the Devils aren't near 50 are they?

But yeah, quiet offseason for sure.

They said "best" which he doesn't fall under.

We could still get Kostitsyn, for cheap based on his poor reputation in the league, but I dont' think he is on Lou's radar based on that either.

The plan is to undermine the role of an independent press while constantly whining that any reportage that deviates from a staunch conservative narrative is biased … while at the same time filling the editorial vacuum that that creates by filling the propaganda juggernaut from under the guise of a news organization. And that organization would be called Fox News.

Socialism is no more impractical than capitalism - either in their purest form are ridiculous, unachievable ideals. A healthy society requires healthy doses of both.

He's played 41 games over the last two seasons. There's no reason he should be mentioned on there.

I don't know if I would want Kostitsyn, in the playoffs for Nashville he didn't seem like a real team first kind of player (referring to when him and Radulov got suspended for a couple of games by the Predators for partying the night before a playoff game).


Kostitsyn might be faster then Sykora but he MAY also be lazier.

Then again the Devils might break him out of that funk. Who knows. I am convinced if Semin signs with NJ that "lazy" stigma he has would evaporate in no time. The same could potentially happen w/ Kostitsyn as well.

It's possible, but it seems like Kostitsyin and his bro always have issues. The Devils may not want to risk bringing that into a locker room that just lost a leader.

Yea, for me it's even simpler: could you really see that guy being a Devil?

If, and that's IF Lou has connections to any sort of depraved organization, which I have always suspected he might, I've always envisioned they would be of a more "infernal" nature; you know: less carnality and vice and more fire and brimstone.

Well, he's had some good seasons, and a lot of players come back from bad injuries. He looks better to me than a bunch of the guys on that list.

You know one of my worries is that if the Devils don't do something fairly significant this off-season, it's going to be a lot harder to attract free agents here. I think it's easy for some people to look at the Devils and say they lost their captain, two important assistant coaches, the team has financial instability and Marty and Lou probably don't have too much longer stays in them. Hence, I don't think it's that far of a stretch for some free agents to assume the Devils might not be worth the risk any longer despite their proven track record. Maybe I'm overreacting, but I'm now wondering if all of this off-season nonsense is going to start taking a cumulative toll on the organization? But there is one important caveat to all of this: I do think the Devils have to be very careful, if they do make a splash, to ensure that it's not going to completely backfire on them and sabotage the team's chances for years to come. Hence, the Devils are going to have to walk a very delicate line here. It’s not going to be easy, but if anyone can pull it off, it’s Lou.

Excuse me while I reach for my Kool-Aid.

Darren Dreger@DarrenDregerI'm told a number of teams were in on a possible Shea Weber trade. If Preds don't match, they receive 4- 1st round picks as compensation.

No way Predators won't match. Actually works out for them since they prob wouldn't be able to get Weber to agree to sign a long-term deal with them.
