Unofficial poll time: Who would you rather have added to the team - Damien Brunner or Mikhail Grabovski? Both contracts, for the sake of argument, are identical at 3 years/$3.5 million per.

Grabovski without a doubt if we are strictly comparing the 2 players on ability and not taking into account team needs. Devils are set at center with so many players that can play there which is why I think Brunner would be the more likely fit, not too mention he should come cheaper.

Anyone hear the rumors of Mark Fraser asking for $2 mil from Toronto? From what they're saying Toronto is offer 875k. I'd like to see the arbitrator ruling there.

Brunner, a bit younger, just as explosive. Doesn't seem to have the attitude issues of Grabvoski.


 

Well he hasn't officially announced Jagr yet. That may be the only addition

 

I wouldn't care about any attitude issues. He didn't say anything all year when he was horrendously misused and only said something when they bought him out of his brand new contract just because his (almost certainly braindead) coach decided he needed to be bought out. I don't blame him one bit for going off about it. Maybe he shouldn't have let it be recorded but it's the exact reaction I'd want him to have

Yeah, I mean, imagine if you got fired from your job just because your boss is an idiot. You're not gonna walk out the door and tell all your buddies that you appreciated your time with Conglomocorp and thank them for allowing you to further your career during your time with them. You're gonna get drunk and complain about how their a bunch of stupid a$$holes.

Agreed. Grabo was entitled to a 2 minute rant after the treatment he got.

Is he really worth that much?  How good is he?  Honestly I am a little ignorant about the Jets (Thrashers) players and I know he was selected pretty high up in his draft.

I think it works out to be about 5.1 per year. I think he's still yet to live up to the hype but was looking like he started playing really well at the end of last season.

If it's 7 years and $33M, as you said in your last post, that's $4.71 per. If it's $5.1 per over 7 years, that's $35.7M total.

Shockingly the early reports were incorrect. I guess it was 7yr/36mil. Apologies.

Still a lot of money for a solid but not spectacular player.

I don't think anyone was hoping for a Gomez return. :P

All joking aside, I have mixed feelings about Gomez going to Florida. I go to 20 or so Panthers games a season, so they're my adopted "second team" if I had one, so I'll likely be seeing a lot of Benedict Gomez. My girlfriend, who's new to hockey but crazy about the Devils, asked me about Gomez today while I was explaining that we'd be seeing a lot of him. She asked, "is he more hated than Parise?". Good question.

It is a good question. The answer is right now- yes, Parise is unquestionably more hated by most Devils fans than Gomez. Long term who will turn out to be hated more? We'll see how everything turns out with the rest of Parise's career. Neither of them will be having streets named after them around here anytime soon.
