Clowe - Loktionov - Jagr

Elias - Zajac - Ryder

Henrique - Josefson - Zubrus

 

This seems more reasonable now.

Is there anyway the signing of Jagr would make the team more appealing to Brunner? The way I see it if Brunner Jagr and Henrique all got around 3m a year that still leaves some more then 2m of cap space with time available to move a damn and clear more room. Hoping for about a 5 year deal for Henrique.

Signing Josefson to a one year contract could be a disaster signing. If he centers Jagr not only will they dominate possession but he should put up a lot of points.


If he benefits that much, I'll live with having to pay him more. Whatever happens, he isn't going to get THAT much more. Salary cap is not going to be something to worry too much about for a while, especially if it bumps up to $70 million.

Jagr could also be good for a mid to late first round pick at the deadline if he puts up points.

Yeah, he'll likely be playing with Loktionov or Josefson, which I thought would be a really good thing for the development of either one of those guys. I didn't even think about how this will affect their contracts next year. Not that paying more is the worst thing in the world, but Jagr would probably be gone the following year, which may lead to an overpayment/big contract.

 

Is there anyway the signing of Jagr would make the team more appealing to Brunner? The way I see it if Brunner Jagr and Henrique all got around 3m a year that still leaves some more then 2m of cap space with time available to move a damn and clear more room. Hoping for about a 5 year deal for Henrique.

As much as I want Brunner on this team, Jagr signing pretty much says that it's not going to happen. The Devils will already be paying Tedenby $600,000 likely to contribute nothing at the NHL level. Olesz will be playing a lot, IMO. There really isn't any room. The only way Brunner is signed is if they let Henrique go (which they won't) or if a trade at forward is made (and who is worth trading at this point?).

I don't think Gionta should automatically be given a spot on the 23 man roster, nor should Teddy. Let them earn it in camp. Best case scenario, if Brunner does sign it makes them way deeper then they would be with either of those 2 players in there. I'm also somewhat optimistic about Olesz playing with something to prove and being a very solid player.

I guess what I was going for with that post was not so much who can be part of that 23, but more about where Brunner fits if Jagr signs. For argument's sake, let's assume it's set in stone that Olesz will start out on the 4th line with Carter and Bernier. Is it possible to even construct a reasonable top 9 that doesn't include all the players in Jas0nMacIsaac's post at the top of this page? The only ones you can argue that may not get a spot at the NHL level next season are Loktionov and Josefson. After Loktionov's impressive season last year, he'll be back. I also think that Josefson will be given a really fair shot this time around.

 

Now if there are injuries down the road, we may find ourselves in some trouble. But as of now, it doesn't appear that there is so much freedom in the lineup.

 

 

(all this assumes Jagr signs)

I agree. The only option I'd see would be sitting Olesz and bumping josefson to the 4th centering Carter and Bernier but that would most likely stunt his development as well.

Had anyone addressed the need for another right handed shot also? As it stands right now even with Gionta on the big club that only leaves him. Zajac, Ryder and Bernier as far as forwards go.

I like the idea of jagr on the team. He might be a good influence for the younger guys.

I am assuming if he signs here it would be for one year but how likely could it be for two?

Hello puppy, if Jagr signed for two years would you blame Lou or Jagr as you explode again?
