Hey, that's better than brother's comment last night: "Looks like a typical Devils home game." :doh1:

Ask your brother about how his Rangers partial plan was last year.  Oh yeah I forgot they priced him out of the arena.

Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun: With getting Corey Crawfordand Niklas Hjalmarsson locked up long-term, GM Stan Bowman will look to extend Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane next summer. Both currently have two years remaining on their deals that pay them both $6.3 million per season.

 

 

i dont know why but looking at this and seeing like Ana re-signing Perry and Getzlaf early and all those other teams locking up their franchise players even before their contracts are up. I somehow feel jealous, can't put my finger on why... but i really do feel jealous

Yeah, I'd be jealous of a team that just signed lifetime .913 goalie Corey Crawford to a deal that takes him until he's 35.  Not to mention 5 years with Hjalmarsson, a player I like but who's not going to significantly outplay that contract.  And of course while NJ was contending for Cups in the late 90s early 00s, Chicago went through 10 years of being a total non-factor and NHL laughing stock, which is why they got Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews in the first place.

Could you be any more annoying and stupidly repetitive?   

 

For one, as much as you seem to be incapable of realizing it, there's a new CBA in place...one that gives teams a nice edge in re-signing their own players...if these rules had been in place when Parise had been a UFA, very good chance he would've still been here.  And way to keep ignoring that Lou re-signed Zajac before his contract was up, and locked up Henrique to six years when he clearly didn't have to. 

 

This crap with you all goes back to Parise and you fvcking KNOW it, even though you won't admit it...get the fvck over it already and shut up with the lame jabs at Lou!  And if you're so friggin' jealous of other teams who apparently do everything "right", go root for one of them.  You won't be missed.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

CR, you might as well get ready to read the 5 paragraph reply on why we should've traded Parise at the deadline and/or the 'Lou should have done more to sign him, he didn't do everything he could, how come Lou didn't threaten his family' response, I mean its as sure a thing as death and taxes.

Actually, it will be more along the lines of how no one understands what he REALLY means, but I don't even care how he responds anymore...no matter how nicely or thoroughly people try to explain things to SD, it all continuously goes over his head...I've just had enough.  I wish I could've taken DP26's tact...in fact, I probably should have, but eventually there's only so much one can take.

edit: okay i didnt want to reply anything but i'll just say this. There's nothing that i dont "get", i simply don't agree. Most of you guys are simply a bunch of hypocrite homers who would praise anything Lou does and refuse to admit when he does thing that hurt us. 

 

You'll use what he did "right" (which i agree he did a lot) to cover what he does wrong listing a bunch of things that he did and what we won and accomplished (and ignore it) and when a rival GM does something very right you guys will brush it off just calling off the bad moves he did. I'm just not that hypocrite sorry. We see this a lot with Shero, he didnt get the results he should have lately but he did GREAT in the last few years, a lot better than Lou but yet most of you will just bash him cause he's the Pens GM. I dont like him either and the Pens but gotta give credits where its due

 

And then you'll base whats the "right" thing to do in your mind based on the way Lou does things. It's not and our lack of depth and talent on the team right now at the moment and us losing quite possibly a top pick this year is a result of all that.

Parise is way, way overpaid. Let's be honest, that contract is not going to look good in a few years. It sucks he's gone, but I thought we were all happy that we wouldn't have to deal with a declining 33 year old Parise at a $7-8 million cap hit for 7 more years. It would have been worse while Kovalchuk was still in the picture.

The Devils have way more depth than the Penguins.  But go be a Penguins fan or a Blackhawks fan or any of the 10 other franchises who are in a definitely better spot than NJ.  Better yet, get ahead of the curve, be a Calgary fan, that way in 5 years you might be rooting for a winner that's really going places.

It didn't look good THIS year, after their playoff round. Minnesota Wild fans everywhere started to acknowledge that maybe we were right about him disappearing in the playoffs.

Losing Parise sucked majorly at first but just kinda sucks now.  By the end of this coming season I won't care anymore and by the end of the season after that I will be glad we are not stuck with him and that contract.

 

The end.

Until he's brought back once Minnesota buys him out in about.. 6 years, tops.

Not sure if I want him back.  Not because I would still be pissed at him, I just wonder what kind of player he would be then.
