I would like to see a lineup of this sort attempted:

Elias - Zajac - Henrique
Kovalchuk - Loktionov - Olesz
Zubrus - Josefson - Clowe
CBGB

I know it's putting a lot of pressure on two young unproven guys playing with Kovalchuk, but at the same time, based on the scouting reports I'm seeing on Olesz, it seems to me that it could work.

There is no way in hell Olesz gets gifted a top 6 spot. With Kovy no less. While Clowe and Zubrus are on the 3rd line for WAY bigger money. Absolutely ridiculous.

I refuse to consider contract values when assigning line spots. Chemistry isn't determined on the open market, it is determined on the ice. I'm not saying there's sure to be chemistry within the lines I proposed, but at the same time I don't care what they're being paid and that's not (or shouldn't) going to determine in absolute terms who they play with.

As for being gifted a spot, come preseason we'll see who works best with who. No one needs to be gifted anything, it should be determined on the merit of play as the season goes on. At the same time neither you nor I are members of the coaching staff of this team. I had no problem with Loktionov getting a spot on Kovalchuk's line and was in favor of giving it a try from the moment we traded for him. Doesn't mean if it hadn't worked out I'd still push for it. Just that I thought it made sense based off of the types of players and skillsets they had.

Lou might've learned his lesson from last year. No more waiting, letting the player decide.

Lay out your best offer, if its not going to work, move forward.

Way to go Lou.

Ok, now things have changed completely with Ryder being here. Scrap the other lines I posted. I'm not completely sure how things will look at yhis point. Training camp should be verrry interesting.

So who is going to be traded or bought out because we will be way over the cap after we sign Henrique and Josefson.

Devils have 3.8 million in space still. Henrique and Josefson are RFAs not close to UFA so I think people imagine bigger contracts than they'll get.

I guess the Devils could go over, but it won't be way over.

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.

Please give some optimism about signing Ryder. I see him as a one time good player that could be a third line player. Why is this a good signing?

According to capgeek we are over the cap by $158,300 after the Ryder signing.

 

EDIT: I am a moron lol I was looking at the Slary payroll. nvm.

Amazing shot. He was one of the big reasons BOS won the cup.
