New Jersey Devils and Marek Zidlicky have agreed to terms on a 1 year deal. #TSN

 

now the thing we surely all want to know is how much for that year........

Interesting.

 

Very curious as to the amount, and how he'll be used.

 

There goes that bona-fide spot for a youngster.  I wonder if PDB will allow for a veteran to be beat out by a youngster (I'm looking at you, Salvador).

Good, I want Zids on the roster. I wouldn't be against dumping another d-man though.

I love what Zids brings so that is awesome. Imagine we could dump one of Sal or Volch, what a dream that would be.

We reallllllly should have bought out Volchenkov. For what he's getting we could fine a better way to really use that money / roster spot

 

at this moment Merril, Gelinas, urbom and Severson just sent that text to one of their close friend "Arrrhhhhhh"

1 year- nice. That's what I was hoping for. I'm guessing 4.5.

My problem with Zid is he doesn't really pair up well with any of our other Dmen.

He's really only been with Volchenkov or Salvador so who knows if they will try something else next season.

One year deal makes me happy.  I would play it like this if I was coach: My assumption is that one or 2 of Sal/Volch/Zids will be on the DL at some point. Harrold (or possibly Fayne) will  get the "maintenance" fill in games for the regular lineup (maintenance can be for bumps and bruises or for being tired, old, and sh!tty) and when the inevitable DL stints happen we can bring up whoever is performing best for Albany at the time for a significant run with the big club.

That's exactly what I was thinking. Zids plays an absolutely offensive minded game, and with a player like he, you'd like to play a shut down/stay at home defenseman. That is probably Volch and/or Salvador. The problem is if you pair Zids with one of them, then you're leaving a young defenseman that comes up paired in a lesser situation, and for a young guy, you want the best situation possible.

Good, Zidlicky brings a dimension that none of the other Devils defenseman bring.

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.

Guess demand wasn't terribly high.  One year seems reasonable.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

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.

I just hope he can actually help the power play this year. It's the least he can do given how garbage he is at 5 on 5. Not really looking forward to watching him and Salvador fumble around their own zone again.

 

Safe to say this keeps the young guys like Urbom and Merrill in the AHL this year until injuries hit. I hope Harrold stays as the 7th man and they don't jerk around Larsson and Fayne again.

Not a Zid fan at all, for all of his offensive skill, he makes some of the worst turnovers in our end, and he is a huge defensive liability...

But I can live w/ a 1 year deal...  anyone know how much??

 

can we please release Vol now??

This has a trade written all over it. Lou wants a young D this year, not ganna get that without a trade.
Very happy Zid is back. None of our other D make plays the way he does, and he's a key component of our PP.

Not convinced this means a trade necessarily because I don't see any reason for one.  One year deal for Zidlicky is perfect.

i'd like to imagine that if Lou made this move its that he's very confident that he can either 1 - move either volchenkov or Salvador or 2- There's a possible package could send a guy like Fayne ++ and bring back something decent.

 

There's no way we can go back in the season with 8dmen again, it was fvcking ridiculous

Wow, this is a great move by Lou.   Work the kids in slowly, but allows Larsson to take Talinders minutes and more responsibility.

 

I am actually very excited for this team right now.
