I love his wheels, but hate his hands of stone....  This will be a very important year for him to stay healthy & get into the Plus column, by putting some points on the board

Not a whole lot of trust from Lou for Jojo. I guess he'll be trade bait.

Yeah definitely seems like it's a last-chance sort of situation.  Really hope he can stay healthy.

Yep, that's a 'show me' deal if I've ever seen one.

More like a we're broke deal.  Hate these one year deals for Josefson and Loktionov.

Took less money to get the one way guaranteed paycheck.  Kind of surprising that he's still worried about being sent to Albany...guess he can hear the footsteps of Pelley and Janssen  :rolleyes:

Hopefully Lou put some pressure on him to step it up big time.

This is a good contract, I want to see more deals. Lets get some players signed

The Loki one scares me the most, he could be a bust  or he could go ballistic and the Devils won't be able to keep him.

I think taking less in a one-way contract puts the onus on the team to keep you on the roster.  I don't think it's fully about the money - assuming his QO would be for $74K in the minors, $990K in the NHL, he'd almost certainly beat that unless he got hurt in the minors.

More like a deal for a player that hasn't stayed healthy, and played roughly half of last season in the AHL. 

 

We'll see what Henrique gets before we get into we're circiling the drain financially discussion again.

Lokti is still a RFA after this year and he's pretty unproven too, plus he just lost the big gun he was playing with this year. I'd have more of a problem with one year if he was UFA.

And I have zero issue with this deal, Josefson took a huge step back this year.

Same deal as Loktionov, same reaction.

 

I hope he sticks around, though. He could be a big part of the Devils' future if he turns out.

Yeah if it's a Fayne type deal and don't do anything else I'd be worried. If they sign Henrique and Brunner the hand-wringing here is going to look silly though.

I don't think this deal has anything to do with the team's finances.  It has everything to do with the fact that JJ is an unknown commodity that has had trouble staying in the lineup consistently over the past few seasons (injuries - demotions to the AHL).  He didn't deserve a deal much more than what he got based upon his body of work thus far.

He's been demoted to the AHL once - after the goalie couldn't stop a puck when he was on the ice and he and his teammates couldn't score.  He rehabbed in the AHL in 2011-12 briefly.  He was sent to the AHL upon beginning his pro contract but was called up quickly and then rehabbed down there in 2010-11.

 

Point is if you were trying to bet on your players, you'd give one of these guys a 2 year deal, but now if they improve, you'll have to be paying them each more money next year.  I guess neither guy has arbitration rights next year so you can sit on them again if you like, but unless Lou doesn't want to have these guys developing a sense of entitlement, there's really no reason why they shouldn't be getting 2 year deals.
