This is the new Summer of waiting for Kovalchuk BS to end thread.

 

Needs ninjas.

 Yeah the Kovalchuk BS that every blogger, wanna-be sports writer and devil-hating facebook troll can't let die already... :rolleyes:

Grabo and Brunner are waiting for the signings of Josefson, Henrique and the impending trade of Volchenkov.

 

...a guy can dream.

 

 

I can wait to go to bed and join in that dream

The longer this goes, the less I'm feeling confident that he'll actually be signed. If there's truth to the original tweet in this thread, I really wonder what's taking so long.

 

But I was just thinking today that a line of Clowe-Loktionov-Brunner could be really good.

Some people says it done but they dont announce it because they wait to have signed henrique... The money of brunner could influence the possible money of Henrique...  But we will see who says the truth

i think i may have a hypothesis on this (lets say he really signed or agreed to something)

 

if we'd put anything in all Lou's quote we could get that he's trying to get rid of another dman to make room for one or 2 young guy through trades.

 

Maybe Lou simply doesnt want to go over the cap and bring back a black cloud over the team's head once again knowing someone is on the move to make room. And maybe he has agreed but he'd waiting to move some parts. Also by being over the cap other teams have that leverage in trades you know. 

 

not saying thats it but its certainly not impossible.

 

i really think Lou is trying hard to move Volchenkov honestly. I cant see anyone taking him but we'll see. He's the odd man out for sure or at least logically the one who should go.

The thing I like most is everything is quiet on the Brunner front, no teams are 'interested' or 'rumored' to get him. That has Devils written all over it.

Aren't teams allowed to go over the cap up until opening day or something like that? I think Lou has gone over the cap during the offseason before and then made moves before opening day to get under the cap. I think it was 2 years ago with Zach's one year deal. Not sure. I just think that if Brunner were already signed we'd know about it.

Don't worry about Lou's cap and such.

it was a mess we had to play down a man and the guys in the locker room apparently hated the situation. Lou admitted it was a mistake on him so i doubt he goes that route again.

Wouldn't really be an issue. If Henrique gets in the 2.75-3 range, Brunner could be given around the same. Probably more due to him being UFA. There's room.

it does fit but then i imagine that Lou would try to trade at least one forward we'd have too many NHL caliber player in the stands.

Damn I never hard that before.

 

Elias was injured and on the long term injury list so we somehow got a break there but all players knew that when he'd come back they'd have to trade someone. IMO Lou tried to move someone over the summer but couldnt, the same might be happening now so he's very careful

You're mixing up 2006 with 2011. Both times we went over the cap. It was even less successful two years ago, that was when we were playing with short rosters (it was 17 players we had in the Pittsburgh game)

And both years we were crap in the first half with the cap problems looming and both times we took off in the second half after the cap got straightened out.

This pretty much sounds spot on. Going over the cap and announcing all these signings gives other teams the upper hand. Lou might have something imminent regarding a D trade that's making him hold out on finalizing all these other deals.

 

Brunner's camp said something along the lines last week of "Deal is close, just a few moving parts before it gets finalized." I think he's a Devil.
