He says that every year. It's the equivalent of your Mom telling you "maybe" when you ask her for a video game for Christmas. It gives her an out if she doesn't get it.

It's like Lou's "Status Quo" or "If i can make the team better I will" quotes.

Lamoriello tells AGross that he is not done with "additions and deletions" for the #devils

 

i like that.

 

hell yea

 

But I thought the Devils were a good team 'unlucky' to make the playoffs last year :P

 

The quote's true even if they do nothing but sign Jagr, they have to get rid of two forwards one way or another before Opening Night with fifteen guys on one-ways plus Gionta and only fourteen spots.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
