TG has been saying Lou was meeting with Henrique and his agent on Friday, if that's true, (and it is, it's TG) then how can he be signing Brunner too? Doesn't quite add up


Devils have $10.6 million in space. They can sign multiple guys.

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.

Well if no deal happen it will prove that he is an Єklund (2.3% accurate)... if a deal happen he could have guess right since a lot of people could do that guess

 

not always, sometimes in the hockey world a trade or a signing is really close but for some reason something come up and it doesnt go through. Totally possible that someone had details on that deals... say something and that one side kill the deal after. so its not black on white that if someone report a rumour that doesnt happen that he was bullsh!ting.

 

of course it goes both ways, it could be total bullsh!t but just cause something happen doesnt mean there wasnt real interest and that it never came close to happen.

So what has your source told you? Just want to clarify, are we or are we not going after Raymond? They've passed in Gagne? And they are definitely in on Brunner?
Also earlier in the week you said that they are shopping A-train, and a trade could come this upcoming week. Is that still true?

 

my sources? i dont have any sources? what are you talking about lol

 

and when did i say that we were shopping A-Train? That wasnt me

I was talking more logistically, Lou can't be in two places at once. TG confirmed Henriques party will be in Jersey, while said basically nothing about Brunner or Raymond

Wow big day tomorrow for the Devils. We're signing Brunner, Raymond, Gerbe, Phaneuf, Vanek, Jagr, Chris Stewart, Crosby, Ovechkin, Malkin, Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Pierre Luc-Leblond!

 

Looks like Nick Barlotta got a promo copy of NHL14 and is making deals.

Yeah it was Colin226. You guys both have Jersey Avatars so I got confused haha.
This was the quote he posted in the Zid thread that i was refering too:

."There are rumors that Lou is shopping Volch and could move him next week. Can't share where I read that but the source has been reliable and if it got out, we might lose the source (if you do wind up finding it, please don't run to TG or post it elsewhere). Can't see how we move Volch but hell, I'd be down.. Might even crack a beer to celebrate"

yeah like you figured i didnt say that but even if Volch start the season in NJ, doesnt mean Colin was bullsh!ting either, Lou could have done everything in his power to try to move him but no one would bite. Not because it's not happening that there was nothing.

Wasnt saying it was BS. Thats why I wanted to know what the source had told you so far. Later, after you said you have no source I backtracked and realized it was Colin.

for wtv what its worth

 

Swiss NHL @SwissNHL also retweed by @HockeyBroad

It is rumored that Damien ‪#‎Brunner‬ will sign with the New Jersey ‪#‎Devils‬. Numbers: 2 years/3mio per; official announcement expected tomorrow

 

so let's pretend it would be legit, are we happy with 2 years at 3m? im fine with that, its clearly overpaid for his NHL resume but IMO it could pay off. he was a consistent scorer in the swiss league (near 0.5 per game) and came here and adjusted well to the NHL producing right away. IMO he'll become better with time. And he's a UFA so anyone would have had to pay a little extra. So we'll see if its true and what he does if it is.

If that's true, that's a very fair deal.

SwissNHL account doesn't seem to peddle in rumors, so I'll give that *some* credence although it could easily be piggybacking off the garbage we've been reading.  If so, it's a good deal - I wish it were longer, but I imagine it's Brunner who would resist, not NJ.

I like Brunner and I love this deal if those are the #s. I also wish it was 3-4 years, but fair enough to start.
