TGfireandice: Sounds like Devils are looking to see if they can move some salary via trade or improve via trade first. Hopefully that means one of Volchenkov, Salvador, or Tallinder. Tallinder is the most likely I'd guess. No one will want Volch or Sal.

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.

 

Josefson has a relatively high qualifier.   He's not going to be going lower than that without multiple years.   I think it's pretty possible they amount to $3M between the two of them.

Reflecting on the Alfie to Detroit drama, it really makes you appreciate guys like Elias and Brodeur that much more. I mean, I know they've won a lot with New Jersey already, so it's not like they've been chasing the championship unsuccessfully (see: Iginla, Jarome; Alfredsson; a ton of other guys) but with the team missing the playoffs this year and being 10 years away from its last championship, what could possibly stop Patrik from trying to get a last shot or two at the Cup with some contender? Also, remember Marty actually became a UFA last year. So, vets staying to finish their career with one team is never so obvious. I'm so glad they're both Devils for life.

For sure a testament to the character of the players but additionally to that of Lou Lamoriello as well - in drafting and retaining them.

Even more telling: They did not go after Alfredsson until Elias officially signed with NJ. Detroit really wanted Patty which is why the signing was delayed.

Ryder, who split time with two clubs last season projected 61 points in an 82 game season.
Clowe (who had an off-year) projected only 2 points less than Clarkson (39) Most years he will be around 45-50 points.
Olesz is a question mark. Can he get back to the NHL form where he was contributing 25-30 points? If he can that would make us a hell of a team I think.
Regardless we are a MUCH better team now. Sounds like some Dman will get moved too. So far this is shaping up to be a fun season.

I'm thinking:
. Clowe with Kovy
. Ryder with Elias and most likely Zajac
. And Olesz on the third with probably Henrique and Zubrus
Think those combos compliment each other.
And I'm hoping JJ gets that 4th line center spot.

How much of a pansy does Igilna look right now?

He should get the same criticism LeBron got for his decision, and I like LeBron.

I am now going to root against Igilna
