They've all been playing since they're 8.  It's toughest to succeed in the NHL, but you're skating just as hard and taking the same kind of beating in the AHL, the Swedish elite league, the KHL, or wherever, at least if we're talking about mileage.

 

No you're not.  You're playing against smaller, slower people and on a shorter schedule.  I'd be curious to look at this - how what year a player starts his career might affect what year he ends it - but one of the problems with measuring this is survivorship bias - rarely do players as not-great as Zubrus start in the NHL at 18.  And of course career-ending injuries are a thing.

I'd be very surprised if TG ran with a story from a twitter source.

 

Well, the horse's mouth says that is exactly what happened.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

I think of Zubrus more like a Bull.  Maybe he could be a Clydesdale if we're sticking with horses.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Wow I can not wait until this is over, as far as I'm concerned we have signed Teddy and that is it in other words squat nothing, look for the open market for all 3 players 2 of which we really need especially Patty, I will be sick if we let him go clarkson I could live with but we need Pattys leadership and say it like it is attitude. C'mon Lou stop dicking around!
Lets Go Devils!!!!!

TG has predictably revised the figures upward, it's now 3 years at 3.1M per.

Deal is official. That's a lot of money and 1 too many years for a guy who has played that many games. He's not the oldest guy, but been an NHL regular since 18, so he has a ton of miles on his body.

I love Zubs and glad he's coming back but I think it might be a slight over-payment. I'm fine with this but I'm a little worried that if we keep overpaying people it will start to add up to something significant. Right now I have Zajac being overpaid by about a million and Zubs by about 600K. We had to overpay for Marty a bit and Elias will get what he gets (although Elias' salary will be completely justified IMO). 

 

There's still Clarkson (probably gone) and Henrique too. And Zidlicky could be asking for way too much.

 

Nothing to worry about now but I can see it all adding up to a few million.

Tom Gulitti @TGfireandice 21m

Zubrus said his only real concern about possible team ownership transition was whether Lou Lamoriello would be remaining in current role.

 

Tom Gulitti @TGfireandice 20m

Zubrus on Lamoriello: "I told him that I came here last time because he’s here and I want to stay here because he’s here ..."

 

Tom Gulitti @TGfireandice 20m

Zubrus on Lamoriello cont: "...and if that’s not the case I might be looking elsewhere."

Interesting that with Elias likely signing at what we can guestimate is $6,000,000 per year, the Devils will be at $56 million in actual salary.  I think it's a foregone conclusion that Clarkson is a goner unless the market somehow drops out entirely on him, which is pretty unlikely.  It's also pretty clear that we shouldn't get our hopes up about any other free agents of any note, including Briere.  That is unless Tallinder is dealt.

So if I were controlling Clarkson's mind I'd have him whine Can you give me years Lou?  Milestone bonuses?  Can we hash out something like that?

I like this line of thinking rather than the "F Clarkson he sucks we don't need him" mentality. Can Lou get a little creative should be the question.

Well Lou got everyone's hopes up last night when he stated scoring would be addressed through free agency. So if we wind up disappointed, Lou can't say he didn't try at least. Or Patty's taking a pay cut, that's possible I guess.

I know TG quoted this on Twitter, but the actual quote Lou said was when asked about a team need for more offense:  Well, we have to look into free agency, there’s no question and get our players signed simultaneously. But we’ll do whatever we can to make us better.”  

 

The radio silence from Briere versus the cavalcade of suitors for Lecavalier seems telling..
