Talent-wise he's a 3rd liner. I'm afraid of the paycheck he's going to get based on his fanfare and clutch '12 playoff rund. Hopefully Lou learned from the Zajac contract.
Of course, if Lou hadn't re-signed Zajac before the season and had lost him this year, then SD and the rest would've been screaming about how Lou never keeps his UFAs and how he should've traded Zajac before losing him for prospects. Poor guy can't ever win.
Signing Zajac was a risk, and it was based on Zajac's good '08-'09 and '09-'10 seasons. If you're implying that this is already a bad contract, I think it's too early to say that, but Travis can't average .417 PPG next season...he really needs to be between .5 and .6 (basically 40-50 points)...not thrilling stuff, but at least respectable. I'd consider anything beyond 50 a bonus, but I'm holding out hope we haven't already seen Travis' best.

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? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
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.
