i know its a pretty obvious thinking but Ottawa? Played there before, they have Karlsson, Philips, Methot, corvo and Gryba signed ... they have to re-sign cowen and wiercioch who are RFA? they lost Gonchar who was playing a lot of minutes too so who knows? 

 

they have 14m of cap space right now.

Ottawa is at present a cap floor ish team.  I don't see why they'd be interested unless NJ took back some bad salary, which Ottawa doesn't really have.

per TG

 

Lamoriello said he re-signed Zidlicky, "For what he brings to the power play. He’s a puck-moving defenseman and he fit in very well.Right now, our defense is solid with veterans and we still have the opportunity for a young player .and we still have a chance of making another move if necessary.

 

so hum... i certainly hope he doesnt mean by "still have the opportunity for a young player" = having 8 dmen

 

more from TG

 

So, it sounds like Lamoriello intends to try to move another defenseman before the start of next season. We'll see.

Haha, that would work out beautifully, send two unwanted contracts right back from where they came.

I wonder if the Devils would take on half of Volchenkov contract for on year to get rid of him

Volch is signed for 3 more years. I don't know how another team can look at him and say, yeah, I'll take 2 years of him at full price + NTC, so long as NJ takes $2.1M in salary for one year. If I were a GM, there's no way I take him at full price for more than 25% of the season, i.e. deadline day in the last year of his deal.

As we stand right now our Defense is the exact same Defense we had when we made our cup run, the only two differences being....

 

A) Salvador and Zid are two years older and badly in decline.

 

B) Larsson has another half season (Lockout shortened) of experience and will eat up a lot more important minutes than he did the previous two seasons.

 

So to reieterate, A is bad and B is very good. When you think about it the situation could be much worse, also when Zid fvcks up we just scratch him and have Harrold play. The beauty of a 1 year contract.

 

Also I don't think Volchenkov is as terrible as everyone gives him credit for, or a lack therof. I think that Salvador is worse than Volch, his contract would be easier to move anyway. Regardless I think the D we have is what we get next season, I could see a situation where Greene or Volch or Sal go down and we call up Gelinas or Merrill and give them a shot over Harrold.

 

Greene-Larsson

Sal-Fayne

Volch-Zid

Harrold

 

That's what we're probably looking at.

The Devils are going to have 14 forwards signed to one-way contracts + Stephen Gionta who played in all the games last year.  They are not going with 8 defensemen again.  In addition, players get hurt, so even if those are the starting seven, we will see plenty of the rookies.

Ok one year that is crazy, I can't imagine no other teams wanted to offer him a one year contract.... Still waiting to hear the number but I'm confident it's reasonable... One year is great either way

I don't know how I feel about train Volch. I know we're gonna have to eat some of that contract and not even get a good return anyway. I know the idea to make cap room is good, but the idea to create roster room is stupid.

i know im the minority but i actually like what Volch brings, i think we'd be better off with him in ou lineup and especially with trading Sal instead

zid said he had other offers but he was waiting specifically on Lou.

I'd be pretty surprised if Volchenkov is traded. Lou might gauge interest but I think the NTC might come into play.

I'm also not so sure he's so eager to go back to Ottawa.

I think this is the D he wants to go to camp with. There will be injuries and the kids will absolutely get their chance.

If Zids plays a certain number of games then he's paid a bonus.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Like what are incentives? There's certain milestones that if Zids reaches this season, he gets paid "X" amount. Could be games played as mentioned, goals, assists etc.

That's an amazing deal. Even moreso when you consider Gonchar and Streit got 5 on multi-year contracts.

So far these games played bonuses have been pretty funny. Iginla and Alfredsson have heavy bonus-laden deals, where they both achieve them if they play 10 games. I imagine these deals are structured like this for the benefit of the team and possibly player, but not exactly sure how. 

 

That's an amazing deal. Even moreso when you consider Gonchar and Streit got 5 on multi-year contracts.

 

I'm not so sure. Both are significantly better than Zidlicky.
