At the same time, the Devils are very close to re-signing Patrik Elias by finalizing a new deal.

Elias and Zubrus both could have become unrestricted free agents and tested the market beginning Friday.

"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."

Are you sure? I have it on good authority that Lou is sitting around doing nothing...

I will rest easier When it's official that Lou re-signs our best player in Elias.   

 

Hopefully, a three year deal, I would overpay, he is too valueable to lose.

Doubt we hear anything til Friday and it is looking likely that Clarkson is a goner.

per TG Hearing Elias' contract to remain Devil is basically done.  Might be some final details to work out. Multi-year. Don't know other details.

 

but...

 

Lamoriello on re-signing Clarkson: "David, I don’t know at this point. We’ll certainly talk and I’ll leave it at that.”

It must be interesting when a player signs a new deal. I wonder if they like go buy a yacht right after.

I hope Lou gets it done. I would be ok with 3 yr deal.  I wonder if Clarkson is asking some where between 5 to 6mil, if he is the Devils should look else where

Like I mentioned in the UFA thread if Clarkson walks we should go after TJ Galiardi. We could probably get him for less than 2M

Galiardi! I'm telling you! Cheaper alternative to Clarkson.

He is a unique player, but someone I don't want to overpay  ($4.0 million per is fair too me), but I know his market value around the league, so would not be surprised if he signed elsewhere.   But I can still hope, I know Lou is still pitching.

Honestly I love Clarkson but it seems that alot of talent will become available due to buyouts and I just can't see locking someone up or overpaying until the CBA resets the market on contract values. I will be curious to see what a player like Clackson is worth on the open market.
