I don't get what the big deal is with the Pelly and Cam signings. Some of you guys are acting like this is a huge negative or something.
There's no saying he's going to be playing, he's probably just going to beat the sh!t out of people in the AHL. Devils have plenty of space for extra contracts, the money is a non-issue..so..who cares?
Good old Lou probably just wanted to give Cam a job.
No one is expecting that these guys are going to be major players for the Devils, and everyone knows that AHL teams aren't stacked with blue-chip prospects...every AHL team has its share of career-AHLers and guys who aren't even that good in the AHL, let alone the NHL.
That being said, I've seen enough of Rod Pelley and Cam Janssen. There's nothing going on there. I guess I'd just rather see Lou fill those spots with guys that have a minimum of upside, even if it's just that: minimal. Lou has had some luck with undrafted players...why not go that route? Chances are whoever he finds aren't going to contribute that much more than Pelley and Janssen, but at least there's something bordering on hope. Pelley and Janssen are pretty much zilches.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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.
