It's impossible to look into the future obviously, but I feel like Fayne will have run his course with this team in two years anyway.

Run his course? He'll be 27. Why would anyone think this? Probably because he wasn't considered one of the top 100 prospects in 2005, as if that makes a difference now.

I don't think it's terrible, but despite the fact that the Devils have lots of prospects, it's not likely any of them will be as good as Fayne in two years. (I'm not counting Larsson as a prospect anymore)

From almost everything I've read, owners want to raise the UFA age. This may not even be an issue

I really don't know how anyone can say this is a bad or a terrible contract. Inconceivable. With all the young defensemen in the system, someone will definitely be ready to step in for 2014-2015 if Fayne leaves.


I hope, but after years of hoping with Corrente and Eckford, I've stopped considering prospects, especially defensive ones, sure things.

See, I don't know that song. But I now have "I got bills to pay/I got mouths to feed/Ain't nothing in this life for free" from Ain't No Rest For The Wicked by Cage the Elephant in my head.

Also, to be clear, I wasn't suggesting that we shouldn't attribute where information is coming from, just that we should be helpful instead of jerks to those who don't think of it initially.

Because, while he's certainly a solid minute-eater, I don't personally consider Fayne to be anything special. I think he's a prototypical 3-4 D-man that has adapted to playing top-2 minutes in NJ. Certainly valuable to the team right now, but I'd hope in two years some of the prospects in the system are ready to move up and take his place.

Terrible deal, only way it works out is if RFA age goes up.

annnnnd this is exactly where I thought this should go. Yes, couple of years and then we see if he's that good and pay him what he deserves, or maybe we have another guy stepping up.
