I had this feeling for a while now, and I think last season was the last shot this team will have for a few seasons till the smoke clears and everything is back in order. We cant overlook the fact that even though Kovi's cap hit is under 7 mil, his actual pay from the team is around 11 mil...and thats why the Devs are a little hancuffed for a few seasons.

(but then Lou shelled out some big monies to Trav, Marty, Sal etc so I'm a little confused)

They have to pay somebody. Just like a floor team does in comparison. The money has to be spent, so they figured why not invest in Zajac, who wants to be here, is still a young player and a top 6 forward. The terrible signing was Salvador. If this was anyone other then Lamoriello there might be a job lost. 

 

Don't mistake not spending money and not having money. If they had nothing, they'd be a floor team or close. They have money to spend, they just are on a budget and will spend to that budget. What they won't be is a cap team or a top 10-12 payroll which is going to limit the talent level they ice so they are going to have to develop talent and make shrewd moves and make sure they don't make a habit of dishing out terrible "legacy" deals dispite having to spend $ someplace.

 

The big question is, does Lamoriello stay on if he feels handcuffed or limited (if he isn't already)?

maybe Ottawa? That'd be the only destiantion for him and they will be drafting around that position. Tallinder is obviously the most appealing of the two, I'd even be willing to move Urbom or Gelinas with the 2nd if it can give us 2 top 15-20 picks

I understand Lou not spending big on free agents....it's the letting our own FA talent get to July 1st all the time that bothers me, why cant he lock up a top player before they get boatloads of money offered to them.

 

Yeah, we'll see if Lou wants to remain GM if he's handcuffed in any way. I think next season will reveal alot about this organization.

Wow and the Devils finish in last.
Perfect ending to a horror story.
I've been a fan since 1990 and I've never recalled a team losing 6 games and then 10 games in a row ...so I don't understand how people are calling me crazy saying this team wasn't one of the worst ever.
I guess we should be thankful it was only a half season?
I mean this team could have ended up with 50 losses this year if you included shoot outs.
Scary.

Yes the team consistently losing 4-1 5-1 6-1 and 7-1 to the likes of the Thrashers while giving hat tricks out to the Eric Boultons of the NHL was so much better....

 

Take your glasses off, Devils gave up the fewest amount of shots for the entire season, if they had better goaltending and more offense they are a really good team. They are not that far off, thats why they were losing games by one goal and not getting blown out like a bad team would.

I think the only chance they have is if Fleury's an absolute sieve

Amazingly enough, the Rags have drawn Washington AGAIN. Death, taxes, and Rangers-Washington in the playoffs.

Caps are due for losing streak, Ovechkin and Green are due to go cold, Lundqvist is due for more shutouts, Rangers always play capitals well. Not good.

at least the capitals are actually being run competently this year by Oates as compared to whatever Hunter was doing last year. And the Caps still got them to 7 last year

I thought Hunter did okay with them.   Wasn't the ideal use of their best player, but if not for the Ward penalty the Caps probably win the series.

yeah but if not for Holtby's insane non-replicable save percentage, they're probably out in round one. I think if he was the coach for a whole season, they'd be middling at best and probably miss the playoffs without really good goaltending

Regarding Salvador, per TG:

 

One part of the team DeBoer was pleased with this season was the team’s leadership. DeBoer specifically mentioned captain Bryce Salvador after Saturday’s game.

 

“I like our captain. I think he did a great job,” DeBoer said. “Unfortunately we didn’t have him here lately. There’s a lot of
leadership in that room. It’s the same leadership group for the most part that took us to the Stanley Cup Final last year. So, I don’t think that’s an issue.”

I'm sure sal's leadership is great. I'm sure he's a captain that the guys follow. The problem is, he's not very good on the ice anymore. And I'm not sure if the leadership is worth the poor play.
