Blech.  I love Zubrus but 3 years is a buyout waiting to happen.  Hoping the number comes in around 8.5M total.

Also of note from TG's blog post: 'Apparently, part of Lamoriello’s recent conversations with agents has been to reassure them and the players of the team’s long-term financial stability – and its future on the ice.  NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly called reports last week about the team’s finances, “inaccurate,” and stated, “We are not concerned about the Devils’ future or the franchise’s ability to achieve long-term success in Newark.” But, until owner Jeff Vanderbeek completes the process of bringing in new partner(s) and makes an official announcement, some might have doubts and Lamoriello is trying to allay them.'

Not the best deal at all. Was hoping he'd get 3 years and 7.5 million. Really not looking forward to Zubrus in year 3. 

 

Having said all that, he's an important player for the Devils, and how they like to play the game.

It's just re-upping an existing slot, but it makes me nervous.   In October he'll basically have had one full month played of hockey in 15 months.   So no real way to determine if the wheels are about to fall off.

 

He's going to play, though, at least.

As of right now we have $45.XX million in actual payroll and approximately $42.XX on the actual cap for the upcoming season.

They didn't overpay a ridiculous amount, but still paid too much. The guy is in his late thirties and coming off an injury. BUT he's an important role player on the team, so overpaying a little bit isn't that big of a deal. Good signing

I guess Lou finally realized not give out four year contracts to the 35 and older players.

1 year too long, money is fine. I dont hate the deal, but I dont like it either. It is what it is. I am glad he's staying a Devil though.

not bad deal , Zoobs gots something left in the tank

 

Maybe he'll retire before the 3rd season.

 

 

wasn't it Zoobie that took his family on vacation with the Sykora's and ELIAS' families last year?

Bodes even better to keep Patrik cool with the Devils

My first thought as well :lol:

Yeah, not crazy about the 3rd year.  But so be it, maybe he gets banished to the 4th line that last year, not a huge problem.
