Also I have on record from a good source that unless there's a substantial change in the situation David Clarkson is 100% gone. I know it's been speculated but source told me Lou has already moved on and is planning as if Clarkson will not be back. If you don't want to believe me so be it, I couldn't care less.

The possibility of Briere breaking out and playing like its circa 2006 gets me kind of excited. The drop off that Briere and Drury had after leaving the Sabres was pretty bad though Briere still put up alright numbers up until the last couple seasons.

i have a strong feeling he's gonna land in NJ for a reason or another. Not necessarely excited or what i want to happen... i just have that feeling. Make sense for him

 

im sure he has friends in philly and all but im sure getting bought out lit up a fire under his ass and that he'd like to hurt them as much as he could and playing them all season in NJ could help that. Plus he'd be close to his family now its the closest city remaining. Nashville would be a pain in the ass to move his whole family and all. and i know for a fact that he really came close to sign in MTL last time but choose philly, means he's cleatly interested in playing for the team he grew up watching but then he might not want to be a part of that circus cause things can go really bad there with the media and all.

 

so i say NJ and i wouldnt be pissed if we don't get him either

when the agent goes public with 'we got an offer and we turned it down' that's probably it.  hard to imagine NJ didn't make its final offer.  players improve but boy is whoever gets him counting on those 15 games at the start of the year being legit.

I have a feeling the honeymoon will be over pretty quickly, wherever he goes.

Which sucks because I like Clarkson but I don't think he is going to be able to remain a consistent 25-30 goal scorer.

Yeah, this is all the agent drumming up money that his client can't live up to.

Someone on the Twitters said today (July 4) was the day Zach left the Devils.  Happy anniversary. :/

Hopefully Clarkson doesn't make it a double whopper.

So I guess we didn't use the compliance buy out on Hedberg since the deadline has passed?

There is another buyout period I think. Sometime later in the summer during RFA arbitration? Could be wrong but I think that's right. I'm assuming they will try to trade him and if they can't then they will buy him out during the next buyout period.

Technically he could agree in principle I suppose. And surprise surprise Toronto suddenly has more cap space than anyone other than the Isles. They'll be this year's Wild - overpay Clarkson, Bozak and some other big name.
