Because that is probably what he wanted.  Why does Volchenkov deserve a NTC?

 

 

 

 

It's really this simple ^^^^ Rag on the Zubrus (or similar) type signings all you want but we didn't have to rearrange our finances and dump players to make his contract work for us lol. It's really that simple, and that's really why people are scratching their heads at this Flyers signing..


 

More than just one team wanted Volchenkov when he was UFA... Offers had to be competitive and realistic.

 

4 or 5 teams made offers. The Devils blew everyone out of the water. NTC was just because.

From what I recall, it was heavily rumored that he was going straight to DC when free agency hit, which may be why the Devils went with such a strong offer.

I really just remember hearing from every website and analyst that he was heading to NJ and they were the frontrunners from the beginning.  Interesting to hear about DC.

See what I mean?  We signed Volchenkov in the Summer of 2013!?!  Well no WONDER there is this huge active bitchfest - my bad I guess  :argh:  Seriously?  Well -- it's not like he has a no trade clause making all the bitching just empty noise anyhow...  oh wait...

 

Anyhow...  I'm not such a  huge fan of Vanek -- exactly how much of the contract will they eat?

Vanek in NJ is just not gonna happen. Not only do we lack the pieces to trade for him, I simply don't think the Devils are willing to overpay for a superstar right now. I think the next couple years are going to be classic Devils - no 90 point player, but several guys who can contribute offensively.

 

However, the idea of a trade to Carolina for a young forward or a pick is pretty intriguing...

Cleary hasn't reported to Flyers camp, rumor is that he's negotiating with Detroit.  I bet it's just he's late because there's no direct flights from St. John's to Philadelphia.

The Philly deal fell through he wasn't signed by them it was a PTO. Surprised Detroit switched from giving him a PTO to a actual deal

AP gets his contract for St. Louis. Good deal for one of the better defensemen in the league.
And Raymond and Toronto have a 925,000 deal. One year supposedly

That's not helping the Franson situation very much if Raymond is a Leaf now...
