Well at least we have our priorities in order by signing guys like Cam Janssen and Bryce Salvador.

Zero need to waste money on Janssen and we're flush at 30+ year old players.

You definitely need a guy like Cam every once in a while, especially when you see the kind of signings the Rangers and Islanders did Sunday. Would I use him more than 30 games? No, but he is needed for certain situations.

Bryce is a locker room leader and he's respected by the players. Chemistry like that is extremely important.

Those salaries are just the average salary based on all salaries for the individual state. I don't get anywhere near NYS's average. :(

S'alright. I work at a Title 1 school. If I stay there for 6 years I get 17,000 dollars in loan forgiveness.

They couldn't have used the extra 3m this season to ensure Parise's big signing bonus and pay the captain? Or, I dunno, find a replacement?

I liked Salvador's palyoffs. This sucks, though.


I loved his playoffs as well--he was the definition of clutch--but I am not aware of anything in his career to suggest that that was anything more than a very nice, very positive fluke. I loved it, it helped us, but he hit the post-season lottery.... I mean, does Lou think he is signing the second coming of Claude Lemieux here? I hope not.

Fluke? Are you kidding? The guy didn't beat a goalie cleanly on any of the goals he scored. They were all like Happy Gilmore on the 18th hole...

He wasn't signed for his scoring or point production. He made 2.9 the last 3 years, and got a raise to 3.16. He was signed to keep doing what he's doing.

Hear you on Cam, it would just be nice if the guy had ANY hockey skills at all.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

True that. There were a handful of goons on the UFA market with better hockey skills than Cam.

Definitely. He has none at all. But I think his job is to get the players up, get them energized, make some hits, and punch a Ranger every once in a while. Another reason I think he was signed is because he is loved by the other players, as is Salvador. This goes a long way towards building a championship team. I think we've all seen a camaraderie on the Devils the last year or so that we haven't seen here too much in the past.

One thing I'm concerned about is that Marty, Moose, Sal and Cam's contracts all together get us to the cap floor. my fear is that if we lose Zach, Lou will do nothing to address that hole.
