They only have around $10M cap left to spend.  (taking $2.5-3M out for Josefson and Henrique, well, mostly Henrique) So I'm not sure why someone would believe they're going out and signing everyone in the first place.  And they're already at $55M+ in cash spent.

 

I'd say they may make one significant signing.   Or maybe two Clowe level things.

 

Also, if they were to spend to the cap they'd be around $69M in payroll.   I'm not sure that's happening, if it is, their financial health is grossly understated.   I'm not convinced they're going to easily dump off defensive salary.

Pretty much this. IMO, Lamoriello made a mistake to mention "active" in regards to the FA market and have the fans expect something. When you think about it, you can be "active" just by kicking tires and not sign anyone. I can say i am going shopping, look around and not come home with anything. It's double talk. If anyone thinks Lamoriello is going to go out and outspend anyone else for a player in this market is dreaming. He can say "well, we tried. We said we'd be active and the player chose this and the price was that..blah blah blah and we didn't get the player." 

 

To me, it's just created more conversation then his usual talk. Of course he'll be "active" and try but if anyone thinks he'll be going out and adding 2-3 FA additions with a newfound wealth, i am not sure they should be hitting F5 all day tommorow.

if we TRADE for Gionta im gonna be a bit pissed. Sign him cheap when his contract is over fine. But to TRADE and send something to mtl for him... no....

We have 725 defensemen. If they're willing to take Volchenkov or Tallinder or someone like that I have no problem with it.

I don't see why Montreal would deal Gionta, much as I would welcome him on next year's team - they're under the cap and seem to be close to set for next year.

rumours has been going that Desharnais, Plekanec or Gionta are gone.

Alain Sanscartier reported that Brière would have choose MTL already and terms would be 8m for 2 years.
 
Not sure how true this is but he's usually legit. Other sources are saying nothing is done. who knows

Writes for the Detroit News and the Wings are in on Ryan as well so I assume he does know something.

Devils have been in on everything according to everyone. We could speculate to death, but whatever.

 

Lou says the Devils will be active during every free agency and trade deadline. I wouldn't be surprised if he does very little and by very little I mean a 4th line guy.

He said he was going to be active during the trade deadline last season and we got Steve Sullivan. I'm not dissing Lou, but Devils and the term "Big Splash" rarely turn out to be true.

Then there was that Cory Schneider guy.

Hate to say it...the Devils are going to have to pay someone 6 million...all of the guys that can give them the offense they need are going to come at a price...

 

Unless you want 4 lines of slightly above average. Guys are going to find a team that well pay more...there are teams that have a ton of cap space

Plus the 1 way deal Tedenby signed gives me a bit of hesitancy.
