I was obviously kidding with that comparison, yet i still dont think its a good selling point no. I really dont. Brodeur is past his prime big time. You dont sign somewhere based on the past success of a 40 years old man at the end of his career, cmon now. Like i said if a guy sign for more than 3 years he wont even be around by the end of his contract.

To play with kovalchuk is a good selling point, the guy is a beast and hes still among the top players, brodeur isnt anymore.


I think the selling point is the fact that the Devils have been a competitive team every year since the 1995. I don't remember off hand, but have we made the playoffs every year but 2? Think of a team like Toronto that has been around a lot longer, but has not had the recent success we have.

We're the defending Eastern Conference champions, the best fvcking team in the NHL's Eastern Conference.

That right there should be the selling point of all selling points.

I've seen other people feel athletes/musicians/actors in the public eye shouldn't mention politics...unless agreeing with their own politics. I think Sean Avery even got a thread on a Devils board praising him for jumping into political speech. Either these guys have the rights to their opinions and can speak them or they are public figures and should never speak them, but it's not that they should speak only ones I agree with or they're political clowns.

Unless you consider him a clown because he said he'd stand by Chik-Fil-A, in which case that should be in the politics thread.

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.

I am not saying I disagree with anything he is saying but in my opinion professional athletes, actors, musicians, etc, should not become political ideologists until after they retire. It just rubs me the wrong way. Its fine to support or acknowledge support for something but in this case Thomas is using his fame to spew his ideology out there, and this is the second time so thats why it rubs me the wrong way.

I agree. Everyone praised Avery for his stance on gay marriage, but pans Thomas for his opposing political views. They're are both entitled to their opinions, whether or not you agree with them.

As an aside, can you imagine what Lou would do if Thomas was tweeting/Fb'ing this stuff while he played for the Devils?

The Sens bought out 25 year old right handed winger Bobby Butler today. I wonder if the Devils would have any interest in signing him for depth purposes and/or to help Albany out?

Looks like we were interested in him a few years ago.

The Ottawa Senators are close to signing American college star Bobby Butler, Hockey Night in Canada 's Elliotte Friedman reported Sunday.

Butler, 22, plays in the NCAA for New Hampshire, and led all college players in scoring during the regular season with 27 goals.

He added two more when New Hampshire beat Cornell 6-2 on Friday in the first round of the NCAA men's hockey championship, but his team was eliminated a day later by Rochester Institute of Technology.

Ottawa apparently beat out strong bids from New Jersey, Pittsburgh, and Vancouver for Butler's services.

Interesting, I had no idea about that. We'll see if the Devils still have interest after all these years.

I think its a no brainer to try to sign this guy. If he doesnt pan out with the big boys he will just play in Albany where they need more forwards.

Devils desperately need depth. I'd give the guy a shot, but it wasn't like the Sens didn't give him all the chances to succeed last season. He really disappointed after a very solid 2010-2011 season.

Should be something to look out for in the next week or so.

Really? Butler started out Game 1 of the season playing 6:28. It appears he got chances on higher lines as the season progressed, but it looks like right out of the gate they felt he was a 4th liner. He's 12th on the team in total PP time.

If he's very cheap, he may be worth the risk, but I don't think it will happen.
