Simply fantastic news.  One of my favorite Devils.  Allows Lou to move forward as well on other matters here in the next day or so.

I think Patty took a paycut, he was making 6 if I recall on the last deal. That's a fantastic contract.

Yeah.  I mean who knows about the third year (bit risky), but the Cap should be elevated quite a bit more by that point.

He might be overpaid then, but it's not like he'll be a liability out there.

It was a cap cut but I think his actual salary was like 5.5 this year anyway. Glad there's no unnecessary agida tomorrow.

I'm really excited to see him finish out his career as a Devil.

 

I thought the contract was a little high though.

 

Are cap space has quickly evaporated. 12 million left with Henrique and Josefson still un-signed.

Elias statement: "To Lou, all my teammates and Devils' fans, I'm excited to sign a new contract and be back with New Jersey. This year marks my 17th year with the Devils and it's very special to be a member of one organization for my entire career. We've shared some great moments together and I look forward to working with everyone to create new ones. Go Devils!
And that's why I love Patty. A Devil through and through.

It's a little more than I liked, but the Devils had no choice here. He has been the Devils best forward over the last 3 seasons. Top 10 in scoring in 2012. Top 10 for 20 or so games last season before the entire team went cold. Most amount of ice-time in his career in 2012 and third most last season. With the money guys like Kovalchuk, Zajac and Brodeur are making, and the deal Zubrus just signed, there was no real debate.

 

3-year deals can be a little scary. Hope he stays as motivated as possible to train in the 2015 off-season. His TOI is going to have to be reduced a little bit moving forward. But so excited to have Patty back.
