Being reunited with Nik Antropov might have driven his decision a bit.

Probably. I was a big fan when he was in TO. Dissappointed when he got here. Looked like all the air was out of the tire.

Obviously, we should have had this guy at that price.

He disappeared here from stretches at a time. It's a one year deal in Winnipeg too.

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.

I have to agree with everything said on page one:

Good luck to Poni, I really like what he brought to the team, can't believe we didn't resign him, especially at that money, etc. However, as others have said, NJ is not everyone's cup of tea; not everyone can handle being in the happiest place on Earth!

Eh he is replaceabl, we was very invisible for the last part of the season. I see us signing Sykora since he can put up respectable numbers at a low price so Ponis departure is not terrible. I thank him for scoring the most important goal agaisnt the Flyers.

And probably would have if he had been willing to wait, but I'm guessing he didn't want to risk losing the offer from Winnipeg to see what Lou and Parise were going to do. Looks like Salvador is still holding on for Zach at the moment.

Maybe a little gamesmanship from Poni if in fact Lou decided he wasn't cut from the Devils cloth after seeing that video. Who knows? Why else would Poni say the Devils did not have the money?

We didn't have it for Poni, but we have it for Zach. Poni didn't want to wait and got an offer he could accept. My guess is impatience on Poni's part.

I really hoped we would be able to resign Poni. Seeing the price and term he got from the Jets hurts even more.

Oh well, if there is one thing Lou is really good at, it is pulling decent depth players out of no where. Hopefully he can pull it off again next year because as much as I love reuniting the 4th line, I don't want them to become the 3rd line.

Damn I developed a love for poni.

The fourth line becoming the 3rd line is a good point tho because Sykora is also not certain for next year
