Yeah. That's like your wife saying she made a nice dinner and you coming home to a bowl of corn flakes.

why cause Lou never signs ufa's?  Stop proving time and time again you don't know what you are talking about.  The best ever talent to get to UFA is wearing a devils jersey.  Lou has gotten the top free agent a few times.  Does he get them all, no.  Do some get away, sure.  Name one GM that is perfect and gets every fa.  How many GM's wanted Schneider?

 

The Lou bashing on this site always amazes me.  The Marty bashing from now on will be intolerable. Of course GR is happy cause he's been waiting 15 years for it,

I'm not saying Lou doesn't sign UFAs, but I am saying that he hasn't exactly been in the hunt for top names recently. The hole left by Zach Parise wasn't exactly addressed with anyone.

agree to a slight extent.. wouldnt say were fvcked until you could see what they would be replaced with.. if both walk and are replaced with complete garbage then i would say that we could have an issue on hand.. but hopefully both come back lets see what happens here

Chere just tweeted that we are close to signing Elias and that he will not test the market.

I don't fully trust Chere anymore, but that's great news if it's true.

So the Devils are waiting to wrap up Elias and then going to announce the bunch of contracts they haven't announced?

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.

After seeing Marty draft Anthony last night why wouldn't he?  I'm sure he can see himself drafting Patty Jr. some day...

Also hearing that Patrik Elias might be among re-signings Lamoriello said would be announced in "near future."

I heard it from Chere. :lol:  Just kidding, they probably have the same source though.

Good as Clarktard can go fvck himself if he wants to get anything over $4.5 million to do toe-drags and wrap arounds until the end of time.

me too, the old 'we haven't offered him a contract' bit feels Rafalski-esque.  At this point I'm okay with it, though the Devils have to get another shooter, whether it be Stalberg or Briere or someone else.

If Clarkson leaves (which seems likely at this point), we could get an upgrade in Horton for nothing. But he's gonna get bank, so I'm not counting on it.
