stop it with the 3 goal nonsense, his best season was not that long ago. If he stays healthy maybe he can be a real asset for this team. Lets see what happens.

 

 

BTW, Devils spent over 16 million this week. We are broke. :giggle:

Off the cuff this seems way to long for way too much bread

 

hope this guy produces..... I rarely question Big Lou.... but there's something I'm not seeing here with this Clowe.

According to TG Toronto out of Clarkson bid, Other teams are starting to realize he plays well in our system but will he play well in theirs and 6mil, allegdly worth?

Plus, he loves New York.

 

Heard the rumours about him coming to Jersey and was really curious about the terms he would get... Wow, this is a lot. The concussion stuff scared teams away and we give him five years. And at almost 5M per... One just can't say this is a good deal with a straight face. Like Clowe coming here, I hope he's gonna be good, but we're taking a huge risk here.

 

Pretty much where I am on this.  On the surface it seems questionable.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

My guess is Clarkson said he definitely wasn't signing in jersey, so Lou went to Clowe. I don't like the 5 years, but I guess the money makes sense considering its free agency.

Yeah, seems like this is Clarkson's replacement.

Lou has apparently liked Clowe for a long time.

 

I like this signing more and more.

 

Yes, the term is long, the $ could be a little less. But you gotta pay to play on UFA Day.

 

As long as he's healthy, Clowe can be a beast.

Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice is also great, and would suffice.

Reminds me of the big 6 yr deal Zubrus got, everyone hated it and then everyone loved it. Hopefully this works out as well.

does this pretty much mean Clarkson isn't coming back? I mean there's still room financially for Clarkson to come back isn't there?

Clowe got crazy unlucky last year. 0 goals on 65 shots. He's better than Clarkson and got less coin

This. We got better while spending less. Just wish it was 4m instead of close to 5m. That's what is going to irk me about this signing

He's long gone. This was the nail in the coffin so to speak.

Clarkson is gone. There is room, but we still have to sign Henrique, Josefson, and may make another signing for all we know. Clowe is his replacement.

A bit more than I was expecting but I still like the move. He definitely fills the gap left by Clarkson. I'm not too worried about the length although any 5 year deal is risky. He can hit, put up some points, and he's even pretty good in the shootout. Welcome to the team Ryane.

I like Clowe, but was surprised at the $$$/years.

 

Any news on whether there's a NTC/NMC involved?

So if he goes down with more concussions... he goes on long term IR and......... his $$$$ stops counting against the cap?
